How We Lose Our Privacy in a Crisis

In many ways, improvements in technology have made our lives immensely better. Thanks to the internet, we have an unlimited supply of knowledge at our fingertips whenever we want it. And improved data collection allows us to know more about our world than ever before. But, there is a downside. When we surrender our personal information for the sake of convenience, we shouldn’t be surprised when that same information is used against us for nefarious purposes. As we’re seeing with the coronavirus lockdowns, governments are willing and able to use technology to track our movements, invade our privacy, and even enforce the law. Free the People creative director Sam Martin breaks it all down in the latest episode of Freedom Over Fear.
