September 23rd, 2016

Episode 639 of 786 episodes

Can we fight terror without destroying democracy? Internet freedom activist Rebecca MacKinnon thinks that we'll lose the fight against extremism and demagoguery if we censor the internet and press. In this critical talk, she calls for a doubling-down on encryption, recounts stories of unwarranted censorship of activists and appeals to governments to do a better job of protecting, not silencing, the people on the frontline of the fight against extremism.
