"The public debates about the government’s measures to prevent
terrorism, the character assassination of Edward Snowden and his
supporters, the assurances by the powerful that no one is abusing the
massive collection and storage of our electronic communications miss the
point. Any state that has the capacity to monitor all its citizenry, any
state that has the ability to snuff out factual public debate through
control of information, any state that has the tools to instantly shut
down all dissent is totalitarian."
