We have all heard the sci-fi horror stories and we know the routine by now. The government is listening. Big brother is watching your every move. And just as the dystopian nightmare that was described in George Orwell’s 1984 becomes more and more a part of our everyday lives, it begs the question – what exactly are ‘they’ gaining from monitoring us.
