The surveillance practices in George Orwell’s book 1984 pale in comparison to reality, Edward Snowden said in a Christmas Day address.
The speech, less than two minutes long, was given on Great Britain’s Channel 4, which has long televised alternative addresses to Queen Elizabeth’s traditional Christmas address.
Snowden, whose leaks about National Security Agency surveillance programs has him wanted for espionage by the Obama administration, called on governments to end mass surveillance in the address.
“We have censors in our pockets that track us everywhere we go,” he said. “Think about what this means for the privacy of the average person. A child born today, will grow up with no conception of privacy at all. They’ll never know what it means to have a private moment to themselves, and unrecorded unanalyzed thought. And that’s a problem because privacy matters.”
