The Fifth Conference on Computers, Freedom and Privacy

The Case Against Computers:

A Systemic Critique

Technological advances are sweeping through our culture like a virulent plague, changing and devastating peoples rights and privileges. Individual freedoms are slowly being eroded in favor of corporate and technology-driven interests. Similarly, privacy is increasingly seen as a threat to governments and other bureaucratic power bases. The future of our world's resources, human and material, is in jeopardy. Our panel will critique computers from these as well as other perspectives. (59:34) Chair - Jerry Mander, Author
