Never let a crisis go to waste is the mantra of big government and the coronavirus pandemic has created the perfect opportunity to expand the surveillance state. I talked with C. Mitchel Shaw about it on a recent episode of the Enemy of the [Surveillance] State podcast.

Mitch and I talked about how the massive surveillance apparatus already in place before the pandemic and how coronavirus provides the perfect opportunity for the government to test it out. The crisis also sets the stage for an expansion of the surveillance state, similar to what we saw after 9-11. Mitch and I also touch on just how invasive location tracking is, the notion that we shouldn’t worry about surveillance if “we have nothing to hide,” the use of “stingray” devices, and we talk about some practical ways to take on the surveillance state
