"I don't want to live in a world where everything that I say, everything I do, everyone I talk to, every expression of creativity, or love, or friendship is recorded, and that's not something I'm willing to support, it's not something I'm willing to build, and it's not something I'm willing to live under," he said.

In one of the most insightful parts of the interview, Snowden explains what the leaked documents reveal. Talking about the Internet monitoring program PRISM, he says that Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft and others "get together with the NSA and provide the NSA direct access to the back ends of all the systems you use to communicate, to store data, to put things in the cloud, and even just to send birthday wishes and keep a record of your life. And they give NSA direct access that they don't need to oversee so they can't be held liable for it."

His words will once again fuel the controversy surrounding PRISM. As initially reported by both The Guardian and The Washington Post, PRISM was supposed to give direct access to the companies' servers, but pretty much all the companies involved strongly denied those claims. And further reporting revealed that the reality probably wasn't exactly how Snowden described it.
