Governments and companies are in collusion and are environment the foundations of the line at the back of closed doors.

This isn't the approach it used to be presupposed to be. The Internet’s unique promise of a world commons of shared wisdom and communications is now lower than chance.

Thought-provoking, compelling, and infrequently scary, it's a wakeup name to electorate who've come to take the net without any consideration. our on-line world is ours, it really is what we make of it, Deibert argues, and we have to act now ahead of it slips via our grasp.
