1. Electronic Surveillance
In 1984, it was well known to the citizenry that the government was spying on their every move. The walls literally had eyes.”Telescreens” were mounted in the homes of all citizens who were not of the upper party. The telescreens could monitor everything that happened in the room via webcam.
Likewise, in 2013, it was found the National Security Administration was spying on the American public. Edward Snowden, who used to work for the NSA, blew the whistle on the agency’s spying. He is currently living in Russia, and occasionally posts his thoughts on Twitter. You can follow Edward Snowden here:
