Edward Snowden - Permanent Record

284A3FDF-1D8B-43F9-B6F0-83E1730E400C.jpg

Snowden released a book last week. I plan to read it in the near future. Not unexpectedly the US government sued him and the publisher the day of release.

I recall conversations about privacy on this forum where there was a large camp declaring “nothing to hide”. I think he does a great job in this quote of addressing that position. The world has also given us a lot to think about in recent years.

You chose a good quote to share. More people need to realize how pathetic such a stance is.

It feels like the moment you log on to the internet for whatever reason, personal, business, pleasure you waived all rights to privacy.

Also it seems like there's a data breach every few months, it becomes almost common practice.

so whatever came out of it? did anything change or now its gone back to pre-snowden days? Trump changed internet traffic laws aswell maybe not related to this but still.

We need right to forget in North America as in Europe.
