Government Surveillance Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)

I came to know about this half-an-hour long journalistic report over the  America’s sweeping surveillance programs by John Oliver. He managed to meet with Edward Snowden in person to discuss the NSA, the balance between privacy and security, and dick-pics.

The tone of the entire piece tries to be entertaining, but underneath of it one can feel the urgency to discuss this topic, get and informed opinion and take a decision. Which will undoubtedly present failings, but will be a conscious one… and one that could be debated again and again under the light of the Sun.

One final note. Being an european citizen I do care about my right to privacy, and I think our politicians and military figures will have to consider the rights of every human being and not ones who simply are born or live behind an imaginary fence…
