Ted : ''We can fight terror without sacrificing our rights''-Rebecca MacKinnon

Post by Antoine Palard on Tue Oct 25, 2016 5:47 pm

I chose to look at this video because she answers at a very important debate nowadays, the fight against terrorism and the protection of the rights (cf state of emergency)

She begins by giving the Tunisian example, indeed after the Arab Spring, the population asked to the government to do whatever it takes to keep them safe. But according to her is not the good solution, throughout the video, she is going to denounce the destructive of freedom measures to guarantee the safety, while giving numerous examples.
This video is interesting because it gives another vision of these measures and their consequences (in particular the abolition of the application of coded messaging).
However she forgets forgets that deciphering these messages can save numerous lives, it is necessary to make choice. Between the publication of an article in Syria and the protection of human life almost everywhere on the planet, my choice is made.
Nevertheless, I agree with her on the fact that the social networks have to play an important role in the fight against the radicalisation, but that it must be made in agreement with the fundamental rights.
To conclude, I can say that this video is instructive, but that the activism of the narrator stands out just a little too much to be unbiased.
