Absolutely. Information is power, and mass surveillance just gives governments/large corps that power.

Mass surveillance is not necessarily a bad thing. Its how its used that makes it bad or good. But there is of course a bias with this sublemmy as it is privacytools.

Don’t confuse mass surveillance with security cameras. Also just because it has benefits on paper doesn’t meant it is good on practice.

“we need bulk collection to stop terrorism” is an excuse, similar to contact tracing, no matter how needed it seems its a b͟a͟d͟ idea.

Really all I’m arguing is that mass surveillance isn’t an inherently evil thing. How the data is used is the more important thing.
