@thegibson The actors in surveillance are generally: individuals and the public, against an array of surveillance threats: state (domestic and foreign, allied and opposed), corporate, non-state, criminal, and private actors.
Keep in mind that the powerful themselves are affected by this: governments, government agencies (US State Dept, NSA, GSA), companies (Sony, TJ Maxx, Equifax, .... basically every data breach evar), generals, presidential candidates, congressmembers, judges ...
