Visionary WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange brings together a small group of cutting-edge thinkers and activists to discuss whether electronic communications will emancipate or enslave. Among the topics addressed are: Do Facebook and Google constitute the greatest surveillance machine that ever existed,' perpetually tracking people's locations, contacts and lives? Far from being victims of that surveillance, are most people willing collaborators? Are there legitimate forms of surveillance? And does anyone have the ability to resist this tide?'

Excellent ideas portrayed in this book, and very interesting format (this book presents ideas in the form of conversations between Assange and 3 fellow activists). This book dives right into ideas; for background info on transparency and freedom of information in the Internet age, the book [This Machine Kills Secrets] is highly recommended.

Truly a phenomenally important book of our time: the contributors truly represent humanity, in that they are not the typical rich, preppie-type-Ivy Leaguer-think tankers writing drivel and disinformation, but the smartest poor boys you may ever read, who have contributed much of their time, livelihood, and lives in a battle against those who would turn each and every one of us into eternal serfs and slaves. The importance of this book cannot be exaggerated, the Surveillance State, or Global Surveillance State, exists today, and must be fought against at every level!
