So why should people care about surveillance? 

"Because even if you’re not doing anything wrong, you’re being watched and recorded. And the storage capability of these systems increases every year consistently, by orders of magnitude, to where it’s getting to the point you don’t have to have done anything wrong. You simply have to eventually fall under suspicion from somebody, even by a wrong call, and then they can use the system to go back in time and scrutinize every decision you’ve ever made, every friend you’ve ever discussed something with, and attack you on that basis, to sort of derive suspicion from an innocent life and paint anyone in the context of a wrongdoer." - Edward Snowden

Earlier in the year, I Passled about whether or not the "Snoopers Charter" was a good idea. In regards to national security, of course it makes sense. However, should people have to give up part of their democratic freedoms in order to achieve this and how do we know that this won't be abused by future governments? 

It's a tough question and it will be interesting to see how the public reacts to this over the next few month.
