Jacob Appelbaum for openDemocracy

The last of three posts themed around the current international political situation, and the profound issues and choices we all face. What do we think we are seeing, and what do we intend to do about it?

‘It is not technology and encryption that is the core contributing problem, it is intolerance. It is a lack of openness, a lack of welcoming, it is this fear of the other that we see.’

‘Othering’ people is the essential issue, from where we are looking as well.
