Government programs and private-sector data collection are destroying our privacy, pushing us towards a 24-hour surveillance society.

We are facing a flood of powerful new technologies that expand the potential for centralized monitoring, an executive branch aggressively seeking new powers to spy on citizens, a docile Congress and courts, as well as a cadre of mega-corporations that are willing to become extensions of the surveillance state.
