Podcast: Why You Should Care About the Surveillance State

In episode #3 of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I talk about the intrusiveness of the NSA and why you should care.

The NSA collects our e-mail, phone records, location information, Internet browsing history and other electronic data all without a warrant and with very little oversight. And yet, many Americans seem unconcerned about this gross violation of their basic privacy rights. They claim that they “have nothing to hide,” and convince themselves that the spies only go after “bad guys.” safe_image.php

In this week’s Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I expose these rationalizations as myth and explain why every American should be concerned about the surveillance state.
