I think there may also be room on the list at the moment for any
number of things Edward Snowden has said in interviews with Glenn
Greenwald and Ewen MacAskill.

For example, from a Guardian piece published on 9 June 2013 [1]

"I don't want to live in a society that does these sort of things ...
I do not want to live in a world where everything I do and say is
recorded. That is not something I am willing to support or live


"I do not expect to see home again, though that is what I want."
