Lawrence Lessig was a guest on Moyers and Company this past weekend. Lessig, a professor of law and director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University, was discussing the recent revelations about the NSA spying program.
Lessig suggested one method of protecting the privacy of U.S. citizens by "making geeks into judges, you know, people who have technical knowledge like others have legal knowledge who could sit there with the judge, lawyer, judges and say, 'No, no, no, when the government says that there's no way for them to surveil without doing blah, blah, blah, that's wrong. They could be doing this instead.' "
