The executive chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt spoke of how spying had been going on since eons. He said that while there ought to be a fruitful forum on the subject of the NSA’s activities, it was in the nature of western society to keep an eye on outsiders.


Eric Schmidt of Google has refused to pass judgment on the NSA and PRISM scandal. According to him the paranoid streak that ran through Western Civilization was a fundamental part of its makeup and could not be erased at one go. Schmidt was talking at a meeting held by the New America Foundation in New York. 

Schmidt said, "There's been spying for years, there's been surveillance for years, and so forth, I'm not going to pass judgement on that, it's the nature of our society," according to The Guardian.

However, he did say this much that we all ought to take an honest look at ourselves and ask the question that: is this what we want?  Nevertheless, he refused to get all riled up about the agencies being caught red handed. It was standard practice and that was the way things were for better or for worse. 

The problem is that Schmidt did not quell any doubts regarding Google’s role in the government orders to allow spying to take place via the search engine. He did mention that the secret information leaked by Edward Snowden was probably accurate.


What Eric Schmidt was particularly concerned about were the consequences of the actions of such whistleblowers as Snowden and sites such as WikiLeaks. The intentions of the Internet would go awry.

Other countries would try to block information in an attempt to escape being spied upon by superpowers like the United States. This would be a tragic consequence, said Schmidt, since it went in the opposite direction of the freedom of information rule of the Net.
