This Week’s Quote: “The energy potentially available to us is for all practical purposes unlimited; but access to it is blocked. It is blocked, above all, by anti-technology sentiment, environmental paranoia, and interference in natural markets. Beyond these obstacles, there is little that science and technology cannot eventually overcome. We further believe that pollution and destruction of the environment is not an essential by product of technology; on the contrary, more science and better technology are needed to keep the environment clean.” —Petr Beckmann

This Week’s Quote: “Some might say ‘I don’t care if they violate my privacy; I’ve got nothing to hide.’ Help them understand that they are misunderstanding the fundamental nature of human rights. Nobody needs to justify why they ‘need’ a right: the burden of justification falls on the one seeking to infringe upon the right…Arguing that you don’t care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don’t care about free speech because you have nothing to say.” —Edward Snowden

This Week’s Quote: “When we’ve got these people who have practically limitless powers within a society, if they get a pass without so much as a slap on the wrist, what example does that set for the next group of officials that come into power? To push the lines a little bit further, a little bit further, a little bit further, and we’ll realize that we’re no longer citizens—we’re subjects.” —Edward Snowden
