Mass surveillance: Should we be yearning for some privacy?

 
EYE2020

In this digitalised world, every move we make and every step we take is tracked. Video surveillance of public places, as well as our personal data, is used for public security purposes. Digital companies want to bring us the newest technological gadgets, leveraging our personal information in advertising and market research.

 

How do we balance personal privacy and public safety?

Should we be consulted on how much of our privacy we’re willing to sacrifice for the sake of public safety?

Does the constant monitoring deprive us of our freedom, or does it make us feel safer?
