Book: Consent of the Networked: The Worldwide Struggle for Internet Freedom


Reason TV interviews Rebecca MacKinnon, author of Consent of the Networked, about internet freedom and authoritarianism:
"Authoritarian systems evolve," says Rebecca MacKinnon, author of Consent of the Networked: The Worldwide Struggle For Internet Freedom. "Authoritarianism in the Internet Age is not your old Cold War authoritarianism."

Reason TV's Nick Gillespie sat down with MacKinnon to discuss internet freedom in the U.S. and abroad, touching on topics such as whether or not China can successfully manage the flow of information and control the internet, what the anti-SOPA movement means for the future of the internet in the U.S., and whether or not the internet is indeed a net gain for liberty or just another tool to be utilized by authoritarian governments. "

One world Government at its smartest.
I have always believed, it is"just another tool to be utilized by authoritarian governments", hence the push for the social networking system.
How very clever.
