Radio 4 All - Thu, 01/02/2014 - 21:27
George Packer talks to Tom Ashbrook about a great American era coming to an end. The era of a strong middle class and “we’re all in this together.” George is an American journalist, novelist, and playwright. George Packer is a writer at the New Yorker and author of the new book “The Unwinding: An Inner History Of The New America.” His book tells about American democracy is beset by a sense of crisis. "The Unwinding" shows a superpower in danger of coming apart at the seams, its elites no longer elite, its institutions no longer working, its ordinary people left to improvise their own schemes for success and salvation.

"Earthwatch with Robert Knight": NSA - Assange-Greenwald-Schneier, Segment 1

Radio 4 All - Thu, 01/02/2014 - 09:20
NSA SURVEILLANCE SHOWDOWN We hear the latest words of NSA surveillance revelator, GLENN GREENWALD, WikiLeaks Publisher JULIAN ASSANGE, cyberjournalist JACOB APPELBAUM, EDWARD SNOWDEN's liason SARAH HARRISON, and cryptologist BRUCE SCHNEIER on the global espionage regime and a new generation of resistance to the 'information apartheid' and elimination of the very concept of 'individual privacy'. First, from the just-concluded '30C3' thirtieth anniversary Chaos Communications Conference in Hamburg, Germany, attended by some 10,000 digital activists, corporate researchers and, presumably, government observers, we hear JACOB APPELBAUM, SARAH HARRISON and JULIAN ASSANGE, speaking via teleconference from the Ecuadoran embassy in a panel titled 'Sysadmins of the World, Unite!' Next, investigative journalist GLENN GREENWALD, late of the Guardian, discusses EDWARD SNOWDEN's radical NSA revelations of the past year, encription defense systems for internet users, and strategies for reclaiming privacy and information rights. Finally, we hear cryptography and cyber security expert BRUCE SCHNEIER speaking recently to the Internet Engineering Task Force about the etymology of NSA surveillance keywords and the hidden hazards of corporate collusion with the new regime of universal digital surveillance.
