Resource titleFrom Crossbows To Cryptography: Thwarting The State Via Technology
Author/sourceChuck Hammill
Date publishedNovember 1997
Summary text/ abstractYou know, technology – and particularly computer technology – has often gotten a bad rap in Libertarian circles. We tend to think of Orwell's 1984, or Terry Gilliam's Brazil, or the proximity detectors keeping East Berlin's slave/citizens on their own side of the border, or the sophisticated bugging devices Nixon used to harass those on his "enemies list." Or, we recognise that for the price of a ticket on the Concorde we can fly at twice the speed of sound, but only if we first walk through a magnetometer run by a government policeman, and permit him to paw through our belongings if it beeps.
