"It Has Already Happened!" - Margo Seltzer: "It Is Going To Get Worse"

The video below is literally terrifying in its honesty. More importantly it isn't some random "conspiracy theory" or what critics like to call a "tin foil hat" wearer, it is Harvard Professor discussing the technology available and being utilized today by multiple countries against their own citizenry.
We hear many say that claims that we live in a police state already are exaggerating, or producing fear porn, but Margo Seltzer who is a professor and researcher in computer systems, currently the Herchel Smith Professor of Computer Science in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University, tells us straight out that we already live in a surveillance state and "it is going to get worse."
Professor Seltzer not only talks about how we are all being surveilled from the moment we leave our house, but how in some cases there is technology that "watches" us in our very homes, such as drones, that can move around and watch you through your windows. This assertion is evidenced by a recent news report of a "peeping tom" drone that was looking into a window of a South Carolina woman, or a previous report from June 2014 of a woman that "saw a drone hovering outside her apartment window on the 26th floor of her Seattle highrise."
Seltzer then delves into other technology that many waved away as "conspiracy," but as she asserts, already exists... such as mosquito robots capable of landing on a human being and taking their DNA.

Seltzer informs us that the dystopian world where privacy is already dead isn't coming some time in the distant future, "It has already happened," she says. "Welcome to today. We live in that future right now."
