Tech firms send Congress checklist of surveillance reforms

Version 1.0 Silver badge

"And not only is all secrecy a sin, but it also isn’t going to work. My spies tell me that they are already in existence machines which can collect and tabulate all the relevant details about the private life of everybody in this theater and store in a space ‘that’ big. Now if this can be done, it will be done, because the machines are greater than men and their watchfulness is invincible, and if this is so our attitude towards them should be existential."

- Quentin Crisp, An Evening with Quentin Crisp, 1978
