There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment...You had to live --- did live, from habit that became instinct --- in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.

George Orwell, 1984

That capability at any time could be turned around on the American people and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything: telephone conversations, telegrams, it doesn't matter. There would be no place to hide.

Senator Frank Church, 1975
