The New Surveillance Society: Big Brother Grows Up
A Live Taping of Philosophy Talk
Wednesday, April 2, 2014 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Philosophy Talk returns to OSU with special guest Christopher McKnight Nichols. Recent revelations confirm what many already suspected - not only is Big Brother watching
you, he is also potentially reading your emails, listening to your phone calls, mapping your personal networks, and tracking your every move. While many see whistleblowers as heroes, others see them
as criminals who ought to be severely punished. So, how should we treat whistleblowers who break the law for moral or political ends? How do we adjudicate between national or corporate security and
individual rights? And what kind of rights and responsibilities does a proactive citizenry have when confronted with injustices committed by the state?
