The State Of Surveillance

A Critical Examination


Is America on the verge of becoming a surveillance state? In the book 1984, George Orwell depicts a world where everyone is watched and their activities cataloged. "Until they become conscious they will never rebel," Orwell wrote, "and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious."

In the post-9/11 world, the "they" Orwell referred to is the American people - those of us who do business electronically, access the Internet, use credit cards, communicate via cellular telephone, drive vehicles on public roadways, shop at major retail outlets, or even sun bathe in secluded yards.

The State of Surveillance is a riveting program that explains, in great detail, how Americans are being tracked and monitored. Whether it is operatives at Intelligence Fusion Centers watching as cellular telephone users walk room-to-room, the National Security Agency capturing and storing our communications, or the intrusive capabilities of drone technology, The State of Surveillance is a hair-raising exposé that will elevate the consciousness of the watched society
