Big Brother Watch UK has published a 60-page PDF on the state of surveillance in 2018:
Quoting from the Concusion of the report:
THE STATE OF SURVEILLANCE IN 2018
Surveillance has permeated almost every aspect of our lives. A future that,
to many, may seem distant and unimaginably dystopian, is very much a
reality in 2018. As the contributions to this report demonstrate, it does
not matter if we have something to hide or not. In our mass surveillance
society, anyone and everyone is under suspicion and observation, whether
justified or not.
If we want to change this state, we need to be more alert to the subtle
changes that threaten our civil liberties. The testimonies in this report are
only the tip of the iceberg, and most surveillance happens without anyone
ever finding out. But this silent erosion of our rights must be brought to a
halt. Suspicionless surveillance not only affects the individual but skews
our perception of others, and risks morphing our society into a repressive
and authoritarian one where principles of free speech and expression are
under-valued. Privacy is key in the delicate power balance between the
citizen and the state.
After all, in what kind of society do we want to live?
