In an interview, whistleblower Edward Snowden discusses his life in Russia, the power of the intelligence apparatuses and how he will continue his battle against all-encompassing surveillance by governments. When asked if it was worth it, Snowden said, 'The answer is yes. Look at what my goals were. I wasn't trying to change the laws or slow down the machine. Maybe I should have.

I worked those desks, I know those people and I still have some faith in them, that the services can be reformed.'
