Banksy asserts that outside is where art should live, amongst us where it can act as a public service, promote debate, voice concerns, forge identities. Don't we want to live in a world made of art, not just decorated by it?
— Banksy Does New York (Chris Moukarbel, 2014).
It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself – anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide.
— George Orwell in Nineteen Eighty-Four.
I can't in good conscience allow the U.S. government to destroy privacy, internet freedom and basic liberties for people around the world with this massive surveillance machine they're secretly building.
Surveillance breeds conformity.
