Edward Snowden
“Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don't care about free speech because you have nothing to say.”
Edward Snowden

Edward Snowden
“Under observation, we act less free, which means we effectively are less free.”
Edward Snowden

Glenn Greenwald
“The way things are supposed to work is that we're supposed to know virtually everything about what they [the government] do: that's why they're called public servants. They're supposed to know virtually nothing about what we do: that's why we're called private individuals.”
Glenn Greenwald

Andy Weir
“The NSA?"

"Yeah, they called and offered to help out. Same software they use for enhancing spy satellite imagery."

Venkat shrugged. "It's amazing how much red tape gets cut when everyone's rooting for one man to survive.”
Andy Weir, The Martian

Edward Snowden
“These programs were never about terrorism: they're about economic spying, social control, and diplomatic manipulation. They're about power.”
Edward Snowden

James Bamford
“Like a black hole, NSA pulls in every signal that comes near, but no electron is ever allowed to escape.”
James Bamford, The Shadow Factory: The Ultra-Secret NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America

Glenn Greenwald
“Every time I do an interview people ask similar questions, such as "What is the most significant story that you have revealed?" […] There really is only one overarching point that all of these stories have revealed, and that is–and I say this without the slightest bit of hyperbole or melodrama; it's not metaphorical and it's not figurative; it is literally true–that the goal of the NSA and it's five eyes partners in the English speaking world–Canada, New Zealand, Australia and especially the UK–is to eliminate privacy globally, to ensure that there could be no human communications that occur electronically, that evades their surveillance net; they want to make sure that all forms of human communications by telephone or by Internet, and all online activities are collected, monitored, stored and analyzed by that agency and by their allies.

That means, to describe that is to describe a ubiquitous surveillance state; you don't need hyperbole to make that claim, and you do not need to believe me when I say that that's their goal. Document after document within the archive that Edward Snowden provided us declare that to be their goal. They are obsessed with searching out any small little premise of the planet where some form of communications might take place without they being able to invade it.”
Glenn Greenwald

Bruce Schneier
“Even though we don't know which companies the NSA has compromised – or by what means – knowing that they could have compromised any of them is enough to make us mistrustful of all of them. This is going to make it hard for large companies like Google and Microsoft to get back the trust they lost. Even if they succeed in limiting government surveillance. Even if they succeed in improving their own internal security. The best they'll be able to say is: "We have secured ourselves from the NSA, except for the parts that we either don't know about or can't talk about.”
Bruce Schneier

Edward Snowden
“Encryption works. Properly implemented strong crypto systems are one of the few things that you can rely on. Unfortunately, endpoint security is so terrifically weak that NSA can frequently find ways around it.”
Edward Snowden

James Bamford
“There is now the capacity to make tyranny total in America. Only law ensures that we never fall into that abyss—the abyss from which there is no return.”
James Bamford, The Shadow Factory: The Ultra-Secret NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America

Cornel West
“I'm sure I've had my phone tapped for years, I don't think it's a crime against humanity they just ought to quit doing it, god damn it.”
Cornel West

James Morcan
“Marcia Wilson was a good example of Omega’s core strategy for creating a New World Order. It involved placing their people, or moles, in positions of power within the CIA, the NSA, the Pentagon, the White House and global organizations like the UN, the IMF and the World Bank. This enabled Omega to pull some of the strings of these organizations and to direct American, and world politics, to an extent.”
James Morcan, The Ninth Orphan

Will Advise
“Quinns always come at half price, about half the time, and half-naked, even during the colder half of winter. A Quinn is like a queen, but draggier, and cheaper to buy and use for personal gain, unless you’re suspicious that you’re poor and illiterate like Jarod Kintz, in which case Quinns could be the spirits of your dead relatives, come to haunt you until you gather a massive fortune through selling books on the internet, to send some back in time through a portal you bought from the NSA, so they would have lived better lives without having to move a finger for their fortune. Oh, yah, and since they aren’t - they’re blue, like smurfs, yet they turn purple whenever tickled on the belly, which is something they seem to rather dislike, since they start biting and scratching when it happens, for no good reason, I might add.”
Will Advise, Nothing is here...

Glenn Greenwald
“The Obama administration, which has brought more prosecutions against leakers than all prior presidencies combined, has sought to create a climate of fear that would stifle any attempts at whistle-blowing. But Snowden destroyed that template. He has managed to remain free, outside the grasp of the United States; what's more, he has refused to remain in hiding but proudly came forward and identified himself. As a result, the public image of him is not a convict in orange jumpsuit and shackles but and independent, articulate figure who can speak for himself, explaining what he did and why.”
Glenn Greenwald, No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State

“Expose the Jesuit order and learn about the global genocide. Speak out, even when what you have to say is not popular.”
John Reynaga

Ziad K. Abdelnour
“I think this mass surveillance by the NSA was never about terrorism: It's all about economic spying & social control. It's all about POWER.”
Ziad K. Abdelnour

Michael Gurnow
“The NSA is correct, 1984 is now.”
Michael Gurnow, The Edward Snowden Affair: Exposing the Politics and Media Behind the NSA Scandal

Will Advise
“I'm an oracle of the past. I can accurately predict up to 1 minute in the future, by thoroughly investigating the last 2 years of your life. Also, I look like an old database – flat and full of useless info.”
Will Advise, Nothing is here...

Lisa Randall
“Lots of data gets collected through the latest technology today, and not all of it is about people's consumer preferences.”
Lisa Randall, Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs: The Astounding Interconnectedness of the Universe

Will Advise
“An imaginary friend once asked me why Americans can't stand Russia. The answer was cold, deadly, silent, and, well expected. It’s because in Soviet Russia nothing happens anymore, because it doesn’t exist anymore. And Americans are all about happenings. If there isn’t one – they don’t go where it isn’t, because there isn’t anything to happen to them there.”
Will Advise, Nothing is here...

Ziad K. Abdelnour
“The NSA is the only branch of the government that actually listens to people.”

Kenneth Eade
“Nobody in the government is talking. It’s a case of national security.”
“Of course. The national security of spying on U.S. citizens.”
Kenneth Eade, The Spy Files

Kenneth Eade
“It seems whenever the government doesn’t want anyone to know something, it is all of a sudden critical to national security.”
Kenneth Eade, The Spy Files

Will Advise
“The NSA may, or may not have rejected the invisible secret operative application form I never even bothered to have sent over to them. I'll never know...”
Will Advise, Nothing is here...

Kenneth Eade
“He didn’t have regular email like everyone else. He couldn’t afford that digital fingerprint that the NSA, the CIA, the FBI and all the other espionage alphabeticals counted on for their privacy-bashing surveillance of the entire formerly free world.”
Kenneth Eade, Russian Holiday

“Agent Tanner sagte, dass die NSA sich etwas einfallen lasseb will. Anselm und Hannah haben sich eben spontan entschlossen, auf Weltreise zu gehen. Postkarten, E-mails, ja, sogar Telefonate von unterwegs sind kein Problem.”
Martina André, Das Rätsel der Templer

Glenn Greenwald
“..още преди време съм решил, че ще приема спокойно каквото и да ми се случи. Единствената мисъл, с която не мога да живея, е да знам, че нищо не съм направил.”
Glenn Greenwald, No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA and the Surveillance State
