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

74571 ratings | 4632935 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.

Organizations such as the SPLC and the ADL are going to insinuate themselves and get ahold of this Utah Camp Williams data and use it to smear/demagogue anyone whose politics _(political Right)_ they don't approve of. Political Correctness on steroids.

Ummm no, Bahrain protest was about people wanting shitte government with the support from Iran. So the government had all the right to protect its own people these protesters weren't oppressed they deserved it.
Jay Flippen (22 days ago)
3:41 Yea. You only might say 'illegally'. That's because Snowden revealed crimes against the American people, so you gotta be careful not to say a lot things about what crimes have been done by the government. Strong emotions work here for distraction purposes. Make sure you keep the focus on Snowden, and not the stuff he revealed.

First there was Religion! Then people said, "I don't believe in GOD. That someone is watching and listening to me all the time.", well, now KNOW you ARE being watched and listened to by someones. The goal is for you to Parent yourself, and not hurt others or do underhanded acts when you FEEL like nobody is watching or listening. The point of Snowden coming out was to let you know this. It was his job to appear to be a whistleblower, but he's doing this to let you KNOW you are being watched and listened to, so behave like a decent adult. Why do you think he is alive, and covered so much, and then they come out with a documentary with a CGI person letting you know they are way beyond what he supposedly leaked. He is a hero! Just not they way most "believe". Beliefs are beliefs, and are incomplete in being personally informed. KNOWING is knowing, and is fully personally informed. Start Knowing by earning it through diligence in your studies! If you want to KNOW Believe nothing! Knowledge, Understanding of that Knowledge, and WISDOM; which is how to properly apply your Understanding of that Knowledge in each and every possible circumstance, because some circumstances require This, some require That, some The Other, and everything in between, and these "3" need to be EARNED. Each being more difficult and complicated to acquire than the previous. This is why it is said, "ENLIGHTENMENT comes through SUFFERING", and why it is said, " EASY come EASY go".

No worries, NSA is just searching all our phones n computers for DICK PICS so they can all get together and JERK OFF. lol On a serious note, its disturbing to say the least. Im sure by now, since the program has been up n running so long, they have spied on every American in the country and gathered at least some information from us. The fuk man, i dont want the Govt searching my phone whenever they want, reading all my private convos and see all my personal content. I did not give permission to some NSA FUCK to see my DICK, fuk videos, or whatever nudes i got. Thats my shit Motha Fuker lol

believe it or not it's %100 legal for you to bug your own phone (depending on what state you live in. but if you live in a 2 party state like california, delaware, florida, illinois, maryland, massachusetts, montana, nevada, new hampshire, pennsylvania, and washington you'll need the consent of both parties). otherwise it's legal for you to record your own phone conversations

Frankly, I don't give a shit. This is the natural progression of social Darwinism meeting technocracy. There is no governmental solution outside of the destruction of society. In a libertarian government business spies on you, in authoritarian the government will. People can't wish for advancement without knowing the sacrifice, if you value your personal privacy so much than buy a phone without a camera, powerful people will find a way, and if not them than their kids will. Society will progress or be destroyed.

YES Like a chart form that adds to the records with the numbers of click marks that you've ever watched. Gay or Straight porn. That also goes for anything else to build and shape a personality profile around you. 90 times for the year and as a history whole. Myers Briggs & the BIG FIVE analysis devices.

John Doe (2 months ago)
Can't be having our reporter's lives at stake the media when used in complete unedited truth is the most effective tool of accountability and change; when unedited uncensored is truth other than that it's bullshit meant to sway opinions in a more popular direction. majority rules minority drools gets old....vut they probably already have a statistic for how long and what happens for that...cant believe soap operas exist sometimes but they do. Jerry Springer heard it all. 20 years later same shits happening who blames him....hmmm...things to think about. knew this already though when in basic training one of the squad leaders was washed back for being found using his cell phone out of civilian property to call his family. next when I went awol for my master chief calling me lower than whale shit

gotta fucking stop...fuck cell phones until it stops no telling who's seen you naked...or what personal conversations they've heard. I'll stick to old fashioned word of mouth...where would Paul revere be if there were cell phones kinda ish personally I don't think China bought as many iPhones for Christmas 2018 partially because of this

Luca Caldari (2 months ago)
11:50 "you hacked his phone " yes Ok but nobody is explaining HOW! There's a huge difference between intercept a phone call with a fake tower and being able to open the camera of the phone without touching it, you have to hack a phone in order to control it first, so in the case of the girl was a mail, but again nobody is explaining how in a simple way that we can all undestan and prevent it. So we already know they can do it, but what's the point of this video if they don't tell us HOW THEY DO IT!

Glorifying a guy who stole millions of classified documents, over 300,000 of which were blank documents (meaning he intentionally wrote a script to steal as many docs as possible).....I'm glad this glorified IT guy is seen as some sort of tech guru. Enjoy never touching American soil again buddy.

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.

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.
