Technology and the Surveillance state.

Technology is advancing at a rapid pase. What does all this new technology mean for our safety and our privacy? What is our probable future In a world that is becoming as technologically advance as we are? 

Join us October 10th and debate the meaning of this technology, and how we decide it should be used. 

Pro-

Mass surveillance is often claimed by its proponents as necessary to fight terrorism, to prevent social unrest, to protect national security, to fight child pornography and protect children.

Con-

Mass surveillance is widely criticized as a violation of privacy rights, for limiting civil and political rights and freedoms, and for being illegal under some legal or constitutional systems. There is a fear that increasing mass surveillance will ultimately lead to a totalitarian state where political dissent is undermined by COINTELPRO-like programs. Such a state may also be referred to as a surveillance state or an electronic police state.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
