This is real poetic justice, to my way of thinking. If NSA thinks they can monitor all our communications and movements, they need to accept we will identify and target them as individuals. In some ways, this is the biggest breakthrough since some activists uncovered Cointelpro by breaking into an FBI field office (after dealing with hundreds of FBI break-ins to their homes and offices).
There’s been a lot of great work with people looking at what intelligence contractors do and about the function of specific surveillance programs—about what intelligence agencies do and the interactions between them—but no one has really looked at this at much of an individual level,” McGrath said. “However, I think it’s important to look at the surveillance state from an individual level, because institutions are made up of people. And when we can understand what people do within institution—why they do it, what their world view is [and] how they got to that point—we can get a better understanding of how they function, how we can reform them and, luckily, it’s very easily to find out who is involved in the surveillance state with just a few simple Google searches.
