We’re Watching You (Always)

A new book details the extent of the new security realities in America. A ‘security-industrial complex” is being built to tie together massive amounts of private information about everyone. It details the “far-reaching consequences for ordinary Americans, who must cope not only with the uneasy sense of being watched (leading, defenders of civil liberties have argued, to a stifling of debate and dissent) but also with the very palpable dangers of having personal information (and in some cases, inaccurate information) passed from one outfit to another.”
