Big Brother

Those Were the Days
“The more people grow accustomed to a listening environment in which the ear of Big Brother is assumed to be behind every wall, behind every e-mail, and invisibly present in every electronic communication, telephonic or otherwise . . . [t]he background assumptions of privacy will be gradually eroded to the point where well wake up one day, or our children will, and it will seem quaint that people at one time, long ago thought that they could speak in candor.”
Laurence Tribe, constitutional law professor, 2006
