re:publica 2019 - Eben Moglen: Why Freedom of Thought Requires Attention

The effect on our capacity for freedom and self-government is devastating, but not so bad for those who want to govern us. People are increasingly aware of the problem, but don't know what to do. In this talk, I explain how and why.
