[liberationtech] Swedish press question: How does surveillance change the citizen's behavior?

To be honest you are probably asking the wrong crowd.

In my experience the way everyday society uses the internet probably hasn't

did before.

Confirmation bias is easy to find. The reality is most people haven't
changed, as sad as that is.
