Quis Custodiet Custodes Ipsos (Who Watches the Watchers) ?
I agree in full with "The Eternal Value of Privacy" written by Bruce Schneier for Wired. Schneier talks about why privacy is not a privilege - but a right, and discusses how absolute power is bound to corrupt. He provides a great retort to the question commonly put forth by those in favor of wholesale surveillance: "If you aren't doing anything wrong, what do you have to hide?". I highly recommend a read, if you haven't come across it already.
