From the Ted Talk by Glenn Greenwald: Why privacy matters

Unscramble the Blue Letters

GG: Well, I mean, the endgame for me as a journalist is very simple, which is to make sure that every single doumnect that's nhtwoswery and that ought to be disclosed ends up being doelssicd, and that secrets that should never have been kept in the first place end up uncovered. To me, that's the essence of journalism and that's what I'm committed to doing. As somebody who finds mass surveillance odious for all the reasons I just talked about and a lot more, I mean, I look at this as work that will never end until governments around the world are no longer able to subject entire populations to monitoring and surveillance unless they convince some court or some entity that the psoern they've targeted has actually done something wonrg. To me, that's the way that piarvcy can be rejuvenated.
