Shoshana Zuboff advocates fight against mass spying

Shoshana Zuboff, a former professor at the Harvard Business School, calls on humanity to resist the new "weapons of mass detection" in the conservative daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung: "Despite its promising beginnings, the Internet and more or less all communications data, our data, have been militarized in theory and practice. ... The Snowden documents show just how quickly such reversals can occur.... Regarded by the NSA and other intelligence agencies as essential to the 'war on terror', our data have been weaponized. ... We can and we must take back what is being taken from us.This is the necessary 'social movement' to which Martin Schulz [President of the European Parliament, who warned against 'technological terrorism' in the same paper] gives voice. ... It's now time for us to suit up. Ours is another epochal contest with great power, but our wardrobe is different. What should we wear?  I suggest we wear our commitment to the evolution of democracy, not its demise. We cloak ourselves in the knowledge that mutual trust, transparency, democratic control, shared accountability and responsibility, and creative invention are our best hopes for the future of connected people on an ailing planet. ... Let's get dressed."
