'State of Surveillance' with Edward Snowden and Shane Smith (VICE on HBO: Season 4, Episode 13)

73804 ratings | 4578508 views
When NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden leaked details of massive government surveillance programs in 2013, he ignited a raging debate over digital privacy and security. That debate came to a head this year, when Apple refused an FBI court order to access the iPhone of alleged San Bernardino Terrorist Syed Farook. Meanwhile, journalists and activists are under increasing attack from foreign agents. To find out the government's real capabilities, and whether any of us can truly protect our sensitive information, VICE founder Shane Smith heads to Moscow to meet the man who started the conversation, Edward Snowden.

I think he was brave to speak out against America using terrorism as an excuse to spy on people and the sheer level of spying is terrifying

Why's Edward Snowden a traitor, but Woodward and Bernstein aren't?? Truthfully all three exposed portions of the government of doing something fucked up... Unless Snowden's another "governmental pawn", then he's simply called them - people in power - out on doing something Fucking strange. just like, Watergate.... screw Americans, they're obviously stupid

Now when Huawei is in business building 5G network, Uncle Sam got scared because it will be so hard to do the same thing. Chinese tech they can’t hack. So what do they do? Blame Chinese of spying because they can’t do that anymore.

This is so cool! My camera and mic can be remotely hacked by government used for spying. So cool. What about the facebook platform?? What if you are in a room having sex? Does the government master-bate to you? Now i am having fun!! You can not know if it was hacked. There is a testing process used to verify if the individual is aware.

The web used to be a government entity. When it was given to the public we basically opened up our private lives for the world to see. Still worldwide there are about 3 billion people not connected. Give it time. 👽😎

If it weren't for Snowden and Julian Assange, we'd still be in the dark about almost everything and our lives today would be much worse then they are, but not as bad as they will get by 2030. Has anyone else notice how the 2030 timing of the 24/7 Drone Surveillance System (DSS) coincides with the UN Agenda 2030? There will be no privacy on any level whatsoever.

President is nothing but a figure head. We should not fear the President because all politicians want to give people what they want. And all people want is money (hyperbole). Man kind has survived this long and I believe it will survive on until we reach galaxies far far away.

To all those who defends mass-surveillance, advocating claims "to prevent terrorist attacks", "there are laws preventing wrongful use", "it's for the protection of our freedom/people/nation", or the possibly dumbest one of all: "well, I have nothing to hide...": All of you need to take a good look at history and remember that though the technology and the names of the perceived perpetrators have changed - the psychology of the human mind has not. It's less than 30 years since the fall of the Berlin wall and the disolvement of the DDR. The perhaps best known hallmark of DDR Germany is it's massive surveillance authority. Sure, some of you might say, but DDR was a dictatorship - a Soviet communist vasall state - we live in a democracy - the government works _for_ the people, not against it!. To you I say: Doesn't that only makes what's happening today even worse? I'd say there's no question or debate: it does. So much that you're rendered speechless unless you just give in to it and sets off on a potty mouthed hail storm rant (I'm actually fighting that urge right now - just thinking about it!). What the DDR teaches us about the psychology of people being surveiled (and surveiling eachother) is not that it creates real safety, nor a feeling of being safe. The contrary! It creates a mentality where even those who have done nothing wrong, feel unsafe and starts to watch over and second guess themselves. People do not feel, nor become, more safe - they become paranoid. People do not feel, nor do the become, united against those who presents a threat or do them wrong - they become disunited, solitary, lonesome islands of fear and paranoia. Wether you have followed every rule to the letter or not - in a paranoid state, a paranoid nation, that's the _last_ thing on the mind of it's people. If you don't believe me or think that these are nothing but my own opinions - not the reality of the facts: please, look it up - the truth is out there, as they say. Now the question is: if, or rather, when, a terrorist or otherwise hostile attack occures, what would the prefered state of mind of your nations people be to successfully handle such an attack? Unity or disunity? A feeling of trust towards your government as well as your neighbour that you will all work together as one to fight of any threat and foe? Or fear and distrust, knowing that in the end, no matter what you have or have not done, you might be pointed out as a traitor. Perhaps being forced to take the fall for someone who in turn only tries to protect themselves against false accusations made by another and so on. Democracy and freedom can only be if it's buildt on trust. By mass-surveillance of it's own citizens, the government tells us that they do not have trust in us - and therefore, we should not have trust in them. Government claims such as "we're watching your every move - you are safe - you can trust us", really only tells us one thing: Do NOT trust in your government - they are NOT acting on the behalf of what's good and safe for you, its citizens - and any villain, inside or outside the border, knows this, and they WILL use it to their advantage.

They fear what Edward really is, and here is the bad news for them, all male humans deep inside, think the same as Edward. The powers that be, thought they had it made, running in their direction fully. But then because of their smug arrogance, they had just forgot one very important thing. The English! It was the English who voted Out, in the Referendum on EU Membership, the other parts of the UK voted to stay, but England said NO, we leave. This Scotched the wicked plan of the freemasons and the illuminati, the devil / lucifer system and their New World Order, is Doomed as the English say NO NO NO. It is our Horatio Lord Nelson, and Sir Winston Churchill, part of us English, that shall never give in. Mr and Mrs May, want the NWO, but WE THE ENGLISH PEOPLE say STUFF IT Madam, where it hurts most. Edward Snowden is our kind of Man, not like all of those other creepy gits at the top.
