"A child born today will grow up with no conception of privacy at all," Snowden says. But not if we can help it.

In an interview with Washington Post journalist Barton Gellman, Snowden said that his work is done. He wanted the world to have access to information about the extent of government spying operations, and now we know. His work is done.

If we want to make sure today's children understand, value, and possess meaningful privacy, ours has only just begun.
