I report from Germany, where I visited the Stasi Museum (20th century's fastidious surveillance state), to Taiwan, where I interviewed Digital Minister Audrey Tang in @GlobalRepCentre  and @MaryKayMagistad 's latest episode of the Silk Road series:

"The surveillance itself is not noticeable. Just, someone’s interested in you, someone collects data about you. The Stasi sometimes lets you know, to influence your behavior, to maybe change your ways, and so on," explained my guide at the museum. Sound familiar?

It's estimated that 1 in 5 East Germans participated in the surveillance system, informing on neighbors, etc. It required tremendous human effort. Today's technologies would've been the Stasi's wildest authoritarian dreams.

Today's right wing media scoops: "that day we said Corbyn met a Czech spy... it was a different day"; "that Stasi file we demanded he open up... it doesn't exist". "Please don't break up our media empires". Er, that's it.
