Surveillance society

 

 

 

 

Youíre Being Watched Right Now        Video        NYT Opinion        20 December 2019

 

The surveillance state

is the stuff of dystopian novels and futuristic thrillers.

 

Or, as revealed in the Video Op-Ed above,

itís here now.

 

With ad trackers on our phones,

facial recognition cameras on our streets

and N.S.A. agents listening in on our phone calls,

Big Brother is watching.

 

Throughout 2019,

The New York Times Opinion departmentís Privacy Project

has been trying to make the conversation about privacy

a little less boring, a little less complicated and a lot more real.

 

We keep hearing,

ďIíve got nothing to hideĒ

or ďI canít actually do anything about it.Ē

 

But when the government fails to protect your privacy,

itís up to you to set your limits.

 

Itís time to decide:

Are you really O.K. with being watched?
