We will hear endless nonsense from insouciant speakers and editorialists about what a great democracy we are, having won our freedom from being a British colony. One thing the United States most certainly is not is a democracy. A democracy requires an informed electorate, and the United States most certainly does not have an informed electorate. The vaunted rule of law in the Great American Democracy is a dead-letter rule of law. Championing human rights on the internet — Part Six: Summing up, too much or not enough? Cloud computing.

Who’s afraid of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks? We may not like Assange’s public demeanour, or WikiLeaks’ hi-tech approach to exposing wrongdoing on the open web, and on a scale and speed unknown heretofore.
But confusing the persona – “Assange” – with the impact that this organization has had on news reporting, journalist practice, and any other sort of research, masks the chilling effect that his arrest, and possible extradition, can have on media freedoms and civil liberties. Untitled. Walking Into Armageddon. New EU law prescribes website blocking in the name of “consumer protection”
Cc-by Stephan Caspar According to the new rules, national consumer protection authorities can order any unspecified third party to block access to websites without requiring judicial authorisation.
This forces internet access providers to create a website blocking infrastructure, which risks being abused later on for any number of other purposes, including censorship. To give a recent example, independence-related websites were blocked in Catalunya just weeks ago. These actions could only be taken so quickly because website blocking infrastructure had previously been put in place for other purposes, such as barring access to sites involving copyright infringement. The Emergence of Makerspaces in the Smart City - Resilience. Julian Assange Just Destroyed The FBI, CIA And Fake News In An Epic Tweetstorm. By Jack Burns Arguably, he’s the world’s most wanted man.
Hated by governments, loved by the common man, Julian Assange seems determined not to go down without a fight.

Noam Chomsky Quotes (Noam Chomsky - "10 strategies of manipulation" by...) James Risen's risk of prison means journalism is being criminalised. Committing an act of journalism could soon become an imprisonable offence.
New York Times reporter James Risen has been ordered to testify in the criminal trial of former Central Intelligence Agency official Jeffrey Sterling, who has been indicted under the Espionage Act of 1917 – for leaking classified information to Risen for publication in his book, State of War. Last month, the US court of appeals for the fourth circuit in Richmond, Virginia, ruled that Risen could not claim a reporter's privilege under the first amendment to win exemption from being compelled to testify. In effect, the court has ruled that the journalist must reveal his source. That sets a dangerous precedent now applicable in Maryland and Virginia, home to the NSA and CIA – the very states in which national security journalism matters most. 03-Transcript-Mausfeld-Laemmer-2.
