Technology brings with it countless benefits to society but it also brings with it a real potential for misuse and unethical practices. Fighting for privacy and against censorship and surveillance is not something we can do as individuals so we would like to shout out organizations like the EDRi and Digital Rights Ireland. They fight against the relentless march of big tech and oppressive governments who if left unchecked would seriously infringe upon our civil liberties. The internet is still very much a social frontier so it's important to support and promote advocacy groups will hold these people accountable.
