NSA leaker Edward Snowden is offering an “alternative” Christmas Message, saying a child born today will “never know what it means to have a private moment.”

“Recently, we learned our governments working on concert have created a system of world-wide mass surveillance, watching every thing we do,” Snowden said a video for the British Channel 4.

“The types of collection in the book – microphones and video cameras, TVs that watch us – are nothing compared to what we have available today,” Snowden says on Channel 4 which has been broadcast alternative Christmas messages for many years. “We have sensors in our pockets that track us everywhere we go. Think about what this means for the privacy of the average person.”

Clad in a black blazer and pink button down shirt, Snowden continued, saying that a child born today will grow up with no conception of privacy.

“They’ll never know what it means to have a private moment to themselves an unrecorded, unanalyzed thought,” Snowden said.

He added that the conversation occurring now will determine the level of trust citizens can place in their technology and governments.

“Together we can find a better balance. End mass surveillance. Remind the government that if it really wants to know how we feel asking is always cheaper than spying.”

Snowden has been in Russia on asylum since fleeing the United States after he exposed the NSA’s mass surveillance program. He recently also gave a 14-hour interview to the Washington Post, where he noted he has “already won” in terms of personal satisfaction.
