PAUL KRUGMAN: There was a really good article written five years ago by Jack Balkin at the Yale Law School. He said that technology means that weâ€™re going to be living in a surveillance state. Thatâ€™s just gonna happen. But there are different kinds of surveillance states. You can have a democratic surveillance state which collects as little data as possible and tells you as much as possible about what itâ€™s doing. Or you can have an authoritarian surveillance state which collects as much as possible and tells the public as little as possible. And we are kind of on the authoritarian side.
