斯诺登圣诞节发表电视讲话
来源:Internet    日期: 2013-12-27


  简介:美国情报机构前雇员爱德华·斯诺登25日在英国“第四频道”发表圣诞致辞,这是他抵达俄罗斯后首度在电视上现身。当天,斯诺登谈到了美国监控丑闻和隐私权问题,呼吁民众一同终结政府监控。

  Hi, and Merry Christmas. I'm honored to have the chance to speak with you and your family this year.

  Recently, we learned that our governments, working in concert, have created a system of worldwide mass surveillance, watching everything we do.

  Great Britain's George Orwell warned us of the danger of this kind of information. The types of collection in the book -- microphones and video cameras, TVs that watch us -- are nothing compared to what we have available today. We have sensors in our pockets that track us everywhere we go.

  Think about what this means for the privacy of the average person. A child born today will grow up with no conception of privacy at all. They'll never know what it means to have a private moment to themselves -- an unrecorded, unanalyzed thought. And that's a problem, because privacy matters. Privacy is what allows us to determine who we are and who we want to be.

  The conversation occurring today will determine the amount of trust we can place both in the technology that surrounds us and the government that regulates it. Together, we can find a better balance. End mass surveillance. And remind the government that if it really wants to know how we feel, asking is always cheaper than spying.

  For everyone out there listening, thank you, and Merry Christmas.
