Jay Leiderman Quote
Since the revelations of NSA surveillance and mass data collection, Leiderman has consistently referred to this as the tin foil age. It is a reference to the days when if someone thought the government was spying on them they would be seen as crazy – the kind of person that would wear a tin foil hat to combat the government surveillance. Now that we are all aware that our government is collecting mass data on so many people, we don't think the tin foil hat wearing people were quite so crazy [sort of], hence the tin foil age.
