How Hollywood softened us up for NSA surveillance

John Patterson

In  Enemy of the State , it is the dependably barmy Jon Voight who goes off the reservation, and in Echelon Conspiracy, it is Martin Sheen. But these lone villains are routinely depicted as abusing a magnificent and fundamentally benign spy apparatus. The thing itself is morally neutral, they seem to argue, it is bad humans who make it behave badly. In Eagle Eye , the Department of Defence surveillance programme ARIIA (autonomous reconnaissance intelligence integration analyst – sexily voiced by Julianne Moore) goes all Skynet on its users, becoming self-aware and determining by ruthless logic that the real bug in the system isn’t digital at all – it is the human political class, and resolving to wipe out the lot of them at the state of the union address. The NSA has been up to its tricks since the late 1940s, and people have been fretting about it for almost as long.
