Yuval Noah Harari: the theatre of terror | Books | The Guardian

This is what makes the theatre of terrorism so successful. The state has created a huge space empty of political violence. This huge space acts as a sounding board, amplifying the impact of any armed attack, however small. The less political violence in a particular state, the greater the public shock at an act of terrorism.

Drones and privacy: A looming threat | The Economist
"Discussions about privacy often involve the question of why it is something worth protecting. People tend to invoke Louis Brandeis and Samuel Warren’s definition of privacy in 1890 as the “right to be let alone”. But this view does not fully capture the purpose of privacy in modern society. A better explanation comes from Julie Cohen at the Georgetown Law School, who argues that “the liberal self and the liberal democratic society are symbiotic ideals.” So persistent surveillance—whether through monitoring internet browsing habits or from a drone overhead—undermines the formation of liberal individuals in the way that an over-reliance on GPS undermines the formation of a sense of direction. This is because pervasive surveillance tends to shape the actions, thoughts and personalities of those being observed. Such changes happen gradually, even imperceptibly. But ultimately excessive surveillance encourages people to behave predictably. To oversimplify her argument, democracy needs privacy to breathe."
