Gov'ts Against Citizens Project

The names pretty formal and all but it gets the point across. I've been watching a lot of the tech news videos and kept hearing all the crazy things the NSA, politicians, Congress, ect. have been doing with technology. I wanted to try to compile a list of articles and things that all have gone pretty unheard. I'm not sure how much I'm looking for but more couldn't hurt for now. I know Wendell has compared some events to 1984 like the story becoming reality. That aspect of the everything really interests me so I may look for stuff in that direction.
If anyone has any suggestions, articles, or sources feel free to link em. I'm just now beginning and haven't really done something like this before, but lets see if I get anywhere.
