Dragnet Nation: A Quest for Privacy, Security, and Freedom in a World of Relentless Surveillance – Book Salon Preview, emptywheel hosts

By: Sunday April 13, 2014 12:15 pm

“The issue of inequality has irrefutably returned to the fore, riding on the anger against Wall Street following the 2008 financial crisis and the concentration of economic and political power in the hands of the super-rich. The Occupy movement made the plight of the 99 percent an indelible part of the public consciousness, and concerns about inequality were a decisive factor in the 2012 presidential elections.”
