– Where do we find ourselves 25 years after the commercialization of the internet took place?
– What is the background behind the internet?
– What role does the free press have in our society today?
– Where should we draw the line when it comes to government surveillance?
– What is the role of a whistleblower?
All of these questions and many more are addressed in this video.
