‘Even people who dislike him [Edward Snowden] personally were now prepared to accept “we live in a better, freer and safer world because of the revelations of mass surveillance”, he said
 

The man whose state surveillance revelations rocked the world speaks exclusively to the Guardian about his new life and concerns for the future.

In the book [‘Permanent Record‘], Snowden describes in detail for the first time his background, and what led him to leak details of the secret programmes being run by the US National Security Agency (NSA) and the UK’s secret communication headquarters, Guardian.

He describes the 18 years since the September 11 attacks as “a litany of American destruction by way of American self-destruction, with the promulgation of secret policies, secret laws, secret courts and secret wars”.

Snowden also said: “The greatest danger still lies ahead, with the refinement of artificial intelligence capabilities, such as facial and pattern recognition.

Yes, we know and don’t want to know…
