Big Brother Is the New Normal

All Three Branches Agree: Big Brother Is the New Normal | Threat Level | "Fast forward to Monday, and the court took the historic step of hearing a post-September 11 spying case.

University of Baltimore legal scholar Garrett Epps in a Sunday blog post in the Atlantic asked in a headline whether “Big Brother is the New Normal?” His own affirmative answer is spot-on: “Whatever the court decides, Big Brother will still be watching. Big Brother may be watching you right now, and you may never know,” he said. “Since 9/11, our national life has changed forever. Surveillance is the new normal.”"
