Read online Cypherpunks: Freedom and the Future of the Internet.pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Cypherpunks: Freedom and the Future of the Internet Cypherpunks are activists who advocate the widespread use of strong cryptography writing in code as a route to progressive change Julian Assange the editor in chief of and visionary behind WikiLeaks has been a leading voice in the cypherpunk movement since its inception in the s .

Now in what is sure to be a wave making new book Assange brings together a small group of cutting edge thinkers and activists from the front line of the battle for cyber space to discuss whether electronic communications will emancipate or enslave us Among the topics addressed are Do Facebook and Google constitute the greatest surveillance machine that ever existed perpetually tracking our location our contacts and our lives Far from being victims of that surveillance are most of us willing collaborators Are there legitimate forms of surveillance for instance in relation to the Four Horsemen of the Infopocalypse money laundering drugs terrorism and pornography And do we have the ability through conscious action and technological savvy to resist this tide and secure a world where freedom is something which the Internet helps bring about .

The harassment of WikiLeaks and other Internet activists together with attempts to introduce anti file sharing legislation such as SOPA and ACTA indicate that the politics of the Internet have reached a crossroads In one direction lies a future that guarantees in the watchwords of the cypherpunks privacy for the weak and transparency for the powerful in the other lies an Internet that allows government and large corporations to discover ever more about internet users while hiding their own activities Assange and his co discussants unpick the complex issues surrounding this crucial choice with clarity and engaging enthusiasm by Julian Assange, Jacob Appelbaum, Andy Müller-Maguhn, Jérémie Zimmermann

Dan Beeton br Venezuela Dan Beeton Jake Johnston amp Alexander Main, Judging by the stance of the leadership of the Democratic Party and much of the media Hillary Clinton s devastating loss in the presidential election of November was all the fault of pernicious Russian leaks unwarranted FBI investigations and a skewed electoral college Rarely blamed was the party s decision to run a deeply unpopular candidate on an uninspiring platform br br At a time of widespread dissatisfaction with business as usual politics the Democrats chose to field a quintessential insider Her campaign dwelt little on policies focusing overwhelmingly on the personality of her opponent br br That this strategy was a failure is an understatement Losing an election to someone with as little competence or support from his own party as Donald Trump marked an extraordinary fiasco br br The refusal of the Democratic leadership to identify the real reasons for their defeat is not just a problem of history If Democrats persevere with a politics that prioritizes well off professionals rather than ordinary Americans they will leave the field open to right wing populism for many years to come br br Drawing on the WikiLeaks releases of Clinton s talks at Goldman Sachs and the e mails of her campaign chief John Podesta as well as key passages from her public speeches i Why I Lost By Hillary Clinton i also includes extensive commentary by award winning journalist Joe Lauria and a foreword by Julian Assange editor in chief of WikiLeaks br br It provides in the words of the Democratic candidate and her close associates a riveting unsparing picture of the disastrous campaign that delivered America to President Trump and a stark warning of a mistake that must not be repeated, Popular Front columnist and New Deal propagandist Fearless opponent of McCarthyism and feared scourge of official liars Enterprising independent reporter and avid amateur classicist As D D Guttenplan puts it in this compelling book I F Stone did what few in his profession could he always thought for himself America s most celebrated investigative journalist himself remains something of a mystery however Born Isidor Feinstein in Philadelphia raised in rural New Jersey by the age of this college drop out was already an influential newsman and enjoying extraordinary access to key figures in New Deal Washington and the friendship of important artists in New York br br It is Guttenplan s wisdom to see that the key to Stone s achievements throughout his singular career and not just in his celebrated I F Stone s Weekly lay in the force and passion of his political commitments
