"[...] it’s worth remembering that every leader of a civil-rights organization who spoke at the march was, at some point, under surveillance by the federal government.
The aggregated moral will of the civil-rights movement is responsible for the election of an African-American President of the United States—a President who, on Wednesday, will speak at an event at the Lincoln Memorial commemorating the march, and whose tenure coincides with the most expansive capacity for government surveillance this country has ever known. The moral arc of the universe is long, and it bends toward irony."
Obama, surveillance, and the legacy of the march on Washington, di Jelani Cobb, The New Yorker, 22 agosto 2013.
