Julian Paul Assange|
Freedom and the Future of the Internet
The Internet has led to revolutions across the world but a crackdown is now in full swing. As whole societies move online, mass surveillance programs are being deployed globally. Our civilization has reached a crossroads. In one direction lies a future promoting “privacy for the weak and transparency for the powerful”; in the other is an internet that transfers power over entire populations to an unaccountable complex of spy agencies and their trans-national corporate allies.

One of those books it gets harder and harder to disregard. Everybody would love to just ignore this text, but post Snowden we can no longer just call these guys tinfoil wearing conspiracy nuts. I guess 'read it and weep' is most peoples first reaction, 'Read it and Act' would probably be better advice.
