Jerry Brito Asks, How Much Surveillance Can We Accept?


Shh. Stop asking questions.

Three months after Edward Snowden's leaks began to reveal the extent of the U.S.'s mass surveillance program, "serious people" are beginning to make the case that it's time for the outrage and indignation to subside and give way to a "national conversation" about the future of surveillance. So has the moment come for us to consider how much surveillance we can accept? Or, as Jerry Brito points out, can we reframe the debate just like Senator Obama did?
