Heidi Boghosian talks about government surveillance, corporate power and public resistance with Robert Scheer. Heidi Boghosian is Executive Director of the National Lawyers Guild. Robert Scheer is Editor-in-Chief of Truthdig.


"Heidi Boghosian's Spying on Democracy is the answer to the question, 'if you're not doing anything wrong, why should you care if someone's watching you?'" ~ Michael German, Senior Policy Counsel, ACLU and former FBI agent

Michael German says that "this unrestrained spying is inevitably used to suppress the most essential tools of democracy: the press, political activists, civil rights advocates and conscientious insiders who blow the whistle on corporate malfeasance and government abuse."

Heidi adds, “If the trend is permitted to continue, we will soon live in a society where nothing is confidential, no information is really secure, and our civil liberties are under constant surveillance and control.”
