German animation explains the evils of ubiquitous surveillance

"Überwachungsstaat - Was ist das?" is a short animation narrated in German (with English subtitles) that does a very good job of explaining the evils of mass surveillance. Being German, the narrator is allowed to make comparisons to the Nazis without invoking Godwin's Law, which turns out to be surprisingly useful.
