The most damning indictments against the NSA — No place to hide. book the government and news media "guardians of the status quo," Greenwald calls them; one of his more charitable estimations — came in the summer ofwhen Greenwald was contacted by year-old whistle-blower Edward Snowden, who provided Greenwald with a trove of documentation of the NSA's collection of the American public's telephone and e-mail data. When he traded a comfortable if demanding practice in San Antonio, Texas, for a ride on a C into the combat zone, he was already reeling from months of personal struggle. On the whole, the book appears highly credible. Greenwald's breathless narrative is itself a spy story, complete with encrypted messages, cloak-and-dagger in Hong Kong, a possible CIA break-in at his house, the detainment of his partner on trumped-up terrorism suspicions, and furious wrangles with the mainstream press, which he denounces for its chumminess with officialdom. Many if not all of the programs and capacities discussed in this section have already been made public, but their presentation has never been as comprehensive treated as Greenwald does in his book.

The Harm of Surveillance A very important part of No Place to Hide, we finally get a whole chapter on the importance of privacy. He notably suggests virtually nothing in the way of positive reforms, sticking instead to criticism. Greenwald's great reporting highlights the collusion of government, corporations, and media to undermine notions of privacy and democratic participation. I know it's the right thing to do.

One concern with WikiLeaks acting independently was the apparently random nature of its disclosures, without any obvious filtering on the basis of public interest or the possible exposure to risk of certain individuals. The US government had worked very hard over the No place to hide. book decade to demonstrate unlimited power. Collect It All The third chapter is in several ways both the least exciting and the most horrifying of the five. The Theory of Surveillance Shortly after the first round of stories, Greenwald describes how Snowden is trundled away by Hong Kong human rights lawyers, leaving Hong Kong for Russia where he remains today. He practices minimally invasive brain and spinal surgery, develops new technologies with his wife through their company, Warren Innovation, and is an affiliate professor of biomedical sciences at Auburn University. FedEx says that the package is being held in customs for "reasons unknown".

On a slide titled "Special Source Operations: Corporate Partner Access," a picture of a crudely drawn leprechaun's hat you know, broad brim, with a buckle on the band accompanies the name of a program called BLARNEY, designed to stockpile metadata from international communications networks.

It's easy to be apathetic about these programs, shrugging it off, all, "Oh well, if the government wants to listen in on my boring conversations, they can be my guest! We have learned that this happens with the cooperation of the private sector, with all that implies for their future as consorts in global surveillance.

Even worse than this is the fact that several media corporations, instead of being the watchdogs they to be, directly supports Washington: One of the principal institutions ostensibly devoted to monitoring and checking abuse of state power is the political media.

Bracket, for a second, the invasiveness and blanket disregard for the sovereignty of foreign nations. Far from hyperbole, that is the literal, explicitly stated aim of the surveillance state: to collect, store, monitor, and analyze all electronic communication by all people around the globe.

I mean, is he at all sane? The book has some shocking stories of invasions of privacy and how certain U. Greenwald argues that the increased digitization of identity makes mass online surveillance much more pernicious than previous state capabilities and provides a litany of evidence to show how the perception of being watched, even in the absence of surveillance, alters behavior.

He relates how surveillance in the US has been a thing since the days of the telegraph, and insinuates that surveillance is likely not limited to the US. Whether they are is another matter, as is the question of what happens with material obtained by such surveillance — a point that this book touches on but never really addresses.

As the arguments rage on and the government considers various proposals for reform, it is clear that we have yet to see the full impact of Snowden's No place to hide. book. These delineations are the most polarizing section of the book, and have been the source of much of the ire directed at Greenwald many of which are collected in the reviews compiled below.

Evil, as Arendt knew, is not just banal. After finishing this book, which goes more in-depth into the NSA surveillance programs and details their tactics at downloading phone calls, emails, and other online communications from citizens around the world, I paused to appreciate the title's meaning -- it's not just Snowden the Whistleblower who has trouble hiding, but all of us.

Journalist Greenwald With Liberty and Justice for Some broke the story of the National Security Agency's vast warrantless surveillance operations last year after receiving top-secret documents from NSA contractor Snowden, who is briefly profiled here.

I read No Place to Hide wondering how we let the spies probe our lives with such inadequate controls, and how on earth we fell for the propaganda that this massive apparatus was there to protect, not control, us. I know it's the right thing to do. Greenwald references and summarizes several studies which clearly show that we make different choices when we know we are under surveillance, and he elaborates on what this means for us: To begin with, people radically change their behavior when they know they are being watched.

This is a deal that invites passivity, obedience, and conformity. In his recent book Secrets and Leaks Rahul Sagar identified a set of necessary conditions for leaks. Elsewhere, Arendt described this state of affairs as "the banality of evil.
