Jeff Tucker on CISPA
Jeff Tucker nails it when it comes to the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act:
Actually, this whole push -- and there are dozens of similar bills floating around -- is an attempt by government to regain control of the communication system of which it lost control in the mid-1990s. Communication is one of the "commanding heights" that government must manage if it expects to retain its grip on the population.
CISPA is a huge effort toward that goal. It will never succeed in reversing the progress we've made, but it can do huge damage to the rights and liberties of people along the way.
