Can you have security without limiting freedom? Maybe not. In a recent article, Dr. Loren Thompson of the Lexington Institute says that the idea that the U.S. would be able to “curb internet criminality without limiting the freedom of everyday users” is not borne out by past experience. He writes that government policies for dealing with cyber dangers seem to be grounded in the belief that we can curb internet criminality without limiting the freedom of everyday users. Thompson argues that the lesson for policymakers is that they can’t reasonably expect to get control of the criminal element operating in cyberspace unless typical users change their behavior.
