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.

Cypherpunks are activists who advocate the mass use of strong cryptography as a way protecting our basic freedoms against this onslaught.

Julian Assange, the editor-in-chief of and visionary behind WikiLeaks, has been a leading voice in the cypherpunk movement since the 1990s. Now, in a timely and important new book, Assange brings together a group of rebel thinkers and activists from the front line of the battle for cyberspace to discuss whether the internet will emancipate or enslave all of us.

Discussion with internet activists and cypherpunks Jacob Appelbaum, Andy Müller-Maguhn and Jérémie Zimmermann. Its primary topic is society's relationship with computer security. In the book, the authors warn that the Internet has become a tool of the police state and that the world is inadvertently heading toward a form of totalitarianism. They promote the use of cryptography to protect against state surveillance.

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.
