The future of surveillance technology, with Ramesh Srinivasan
Joe Biden was recently confronted by an environmental activist who asked him to explain why he deserves the votes of people concerned about climate change. He refused to answer the question in a move that should concern Biden fans. Lee dissects the interaction. Lee sat down this week with Ramesh Srinivasan, an academic whose work focuses on the intersection between technology and social development, and who recently published ‘Beyond The Valley’. His book is about the potential for modern communication technology in addressing social inequality, as well as the dangers it holds. Naomi Karavani finishes off the show with a report on new findings about the CIA’s MKULTRA mind control program.
