Who knew Kurt Loder was a Libertarian? I found this video with Reason Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Nick Gillespie, wherein Loder ruminates on new technology and its implications for freedom. He praises user-generated media, and decries the growth of the surveillance state. It’s the old problem of quis custodiet ipsos custodes, or “Who will watch the watchers themselves?” When everyone has access to technology, Big Brother may be watching, but his subjects gaze also.
