Foucault’s theory on disciplinary society through surveillance

Speaking about the contemporary politics of surveillance, Edward Snowdon stated: “Even if you’re
not doing anything wrong, you are being watched and recorded.” Utilizing Foucault’s theory about how
we live in a disciplinary society in which power is exercised through pervasive but anonymous
surveillance (e.g. CCTV, airport surveillance, etc.), please discuss how we can make sense of how
these mechanisms work. Are there limits to Foucault’s theory? You can choose to write your essay on
one mechanism or site (e.g. airport security) or discuss multiple mechanisms
