    Here's a collection of interesting videos and links pertaining to the mass surveillance currently on-going. It all started when The Guardian's Glenn Greenwald exposed secret information indicating that the NSA was monitoring virtually all communication in the United States and in many countries around the world through a collaborative effort called PRISM. The source of this information is purported to be former CIA agent and NSA contractor Edward Snowden. Many Congresspeople, privacy advocates and civil liberties organizations have called this a violation of the 4th amendment of the United States Constitution, which prohibits illegal search and seizure.
