(You can choose or or both)

If you weren't aware that CitizenFour, the documentary about Edward Snowden, won an Oscar, you are forgiven. Lots of media didn't even mention it in passing.

There was an interesting Reddit chat afterwards, with participation from the film maker, associated journalist, and the man himself.

It's worth dipping in for a look.

Here are two thought-provoking quotes:

In response to the popular trope "if you've got nothing to hide, you've got nothing to worry about":
Yes, but what if you DID have something to hide, not because you're a criminal, but because your government is?

Edward Snowden, talking about government reform:

Ultimately, if people lose their willingness to recognize that there are times in our history when legality becomes distinct from morality, we aren't just ceding control of our rights to government, but our agency in determing thour futures.
