"The thing that troubles a lot of us on one hand is a company being sort of forced by the government to create a tool of surveillance, a version of the operating system that doesn't have the protections that the normal version does, specifically for eavesdropping."

– Joseph Lorenzo Hall, Center for Democracy and Technology's chief technology officer, on why his group supports Apple's decision to resist a court order to create a new operating system for FBI surveillance that could be placed on hundreds of millions of iPhones

A federal judge issued an order on Feb. 16, requiring the Apple computer company to produce software for the FBI that can unlock the iPhone used by one of the deceased attackers who killed 14 people and wounded 22 at a holiday party at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California on Dec. 2, 2015. The order does not ask Apple to break the phone's encryption, but rather to disable the iPhone's feature that deletes all data on the phone after a user enters an incorrect password 10 times.  Story continues

Mass Civil Disobedience Planned for U.S. Capitol in April to Protest Big Money in Politics

MP3 Interview with Kai Newkirk, campaign director with the group Democracy Spring, conducted by Scott Harris

For the first time in recent U.S. history, candidates competing to win their party’s nomination to run in the 2016 presidential election have been forced to address what many Americans believe to be their nation’s broken political system and economy rigged in favor of the wealthiest individuals and powerful corporations. While Vermont’s Independent Senator Bernie Sanders has devoted his campaign to articulating these grievances more than any other candidate, others vying for the White House, including Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, have to a lesser degree also emphasized the failings of America’s current political and economic status quo.  Story continues
