When we think we’re being watched, we make behavior choices that we believe other people want us to make. It’s a natural human desire to avoid societal condemnation. That’s why every state loves surveillance – it breeds a conformist population.

Our problem isn’t technical. It’s political and social. But we keep using the wrong tools. Because if cryptography doesn’t work you are just not using enough of it, right?

We as a scene need to exit the shock cycle and start developing new utopias.

We have to understand that surveillance is not the enemy but the symptom of a global society being so afraid of the world that it sacrifices anything to anyone promising a certain level of control.

And that is where we stumble: Because where politicians promise control by surveillance and the force of law we try to promise the same thing by technology indistinguishable from magic. We follow the same narrative that others can sell a lot better than we can.

Solange die Menschen gerne so wären, wie es die Überwachung als unauffällig empfindet, werden sie gerne überwacht werden wollen.

Has any country that engaged in mass surveillance of its own citizens voluntarily given up that capability? Has any mass surveillance country avoided becoming totalitarian?

Wir haben es mit einer internationalen Verschwörung der Regierungen gegen ihre Bevölkerungen zu tun. ... Es ist der Nationalstaat selbst, der sich gegen die Erosion seiner Macht zur Wehr setzt. Er darf nicht gewinnen.

The greatest fear I have is that nothing will change. People will see all these disclosures, they'll know the lengths the government is going to grant themselves powers unilaterally to create greater control over American society and global society – but they won't be willing to take the risks necessary to stand up and fight to change things, to force their representatives to take a stand in their interests, and in the months ahead, the years ahead, it's only going to get worse!
