“…Listening in on phone conversations, secret video recordings, spying - these certainly help an investigation. However, without permission from an investigative institution, the use of such material should not only not be permissable, but its existence should be entirely concealed. There is a concept that one, to at least some extent, should have a private life that is as protected as the state itself."
“… A few days ago, my friend and I were walking down the street discussing some topic, I can't quite remember what it was. He asked me if I knew the difference between the mechanics of modern-day politics and those of the Middle Ages. In response to his own questions, he told me that their differentiating factor was technical facilities. I asked him what he meant. He told me that in the Middle Ages God, with his long white beard, gazed down at the people of Earth from Heaven and judged whether a person was worthy of salvation or deserved to burn in Hell. He reminded me of the Eye of Providence depicted on frescoes. "This omniscient, all-seeing eye", he said "is high up on the wall close to the ceiling and it is called a video camera."
