Challenging the Surveillance State

How can the sprawling domestic spying apparatus be undermined?

I'm traveling this week in connection with the release of the paperback of With Liberty and Justice for Some, so writing every day may be difficult. In the meantime, here are the first four segments of the speech I gave in Chicago on Friday night on Challenging the Surveillance State (if you can only watch one, the fourth segment -- on the harms from ubiquitous surveillance -- is the one I'd recommend). I will post the video of the excellent audience discussion that followed once it is available (thanks to Kevin Gosztola for posting these; he has typically worthwhile commentary on the speech). Also, I was on Up With Chris Hayes this morning, which included a superb discussion of campaign finance, Citizens United, and oligarchical control of elections, and will post that when it is available as well:
