    Funny, but as a political matter, I think it confuses unreasonable prohibitions with detection of violation of unreasonable prohibitions.  If any of the things Smythe was accussed of could really lead to his detention/disappearance, then he lives under an evil regime whether there is broad surveillance or not. 

    Elizabethean England had nothing for surveillance more sophisticated than reading letters written in cipher, but it still worked as a totalitarian government.  Signal-intercepting technology is neither necessary nor sufficient to pervasive government oppression.
