In a discussion on Last Week Tonight, Edward Snowden told comedian John Oliver about how we can think about the governments surveillance of citizens in a more relatable manner.
It is often discussed that the general population isn't up in arms about breaches of sensitive data as they can't closely relate with exactly whats going on. In an attempt to educate some, Oliver took a new approach as spotted on News.com.au.
Talking to Americans on the street, Oliver showed us that there was quite a number of people who weren't exactly sure who Snowden was - often confusing him for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. He then asked how people would feel if their naughty 'nudes' were available for the taking.
One angry person stated "if I had knowledge that the US government had a picture of my d*ck, I would be very pissed off," with Snowden adding "well, the good news is there's no program named 'The D*ck Pic Program'. The bad news is [the government's] still collecting everybody's information - including your d*ck pics."
