Digital Privacy Is “The New Frontier Of Human Rights”

Interesting article at http://techcrunch.com/2014/11/23/privacy-human-rights-frontier/.

One interesting quote:

“Fighting terrorism is actually fought better by understanding that targeted information is a far better thing, rather than this mass surveillance approach,” argued [Claude] Moraes.

“People in Germany who understand what happens when you have unfettered mass surveillance, where information is then out there being used for negative purposes, understand where that can lead. But if you have targeted information… then we are in a society where that privacy balance is preserved,” he continued, adding: “It’s the terrorists who want to deprive us of the freedoms that we all fight for. They’re not interested in these freedoms.”
