The Naked Citizen: Notes on Privacy in the 21st. Century


Feel like someone’s watching? You’re probably right. Your anonymity is an illusion. 

The trend toward constant surveillance is disturbing. 
Supporters often argue, "If you're obeying the law, you have nothing to fear."

But is that true?

In the 1970’s, the idea of a national identification card was floated, which led to great protest. We no longer need a national identity card: it already exists. It’s your phone.

In The Naked Citizen, Philip Dossick points an ominous warning finger at how our civil rights are at risk and need to be protected against the abuses of illicit surveillance.

PHILIP DOSSICK is the New York Times critically acclaimed writer and director of the motion picture The P.O.W. He has written for television, including the outstanding drama, Transplant, produced by David Susskind for CBS.
