Currently, I am reading Robert O'Harrow's book No Place to Hide. So, Patriot act has been on mind. Today, the Senate Judiciary committee began its hearing on the oversight of the Patriot act, which is slated for renewal this year. For me this will be one of the most important issues of the year, if not THE most important issue. Three useful resources for information on the USA Patriot act:
- Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT) USA PATRIOT Act and Other Security Issues Page
- Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) USA PATRIOT Act page
- Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) USA PATRIOT Act page
This is not a political issue in my mind, but a fundamental look at how citizen's of this country will value their individual liberty, privacy, and freedom in the coming years.
