MEDIA REVIEWS

"Technology has long been touted as a great liberating tool that will improve life. Instead, as Elliot Cohen trenchantly details, invasive hi-technology has become a cancerous growth that invades privacy and creates a surveillance state. Fortunately, Cohen suggests strategies to rein in the perilous danger of a government that can monitor our every move - and perhaps soon our thoughts." Mark Karlin, Editor of BuzzFlash at Truthout

"Technology of Oppression features the importance of preserving human freedom and dignity in the face of mass surveillance by governments and corporations. We are faced with the loss of nothing less than our cognitive liberty to be independent thinking human beings. Elliot Cohen is the Paul Revere of the 21st century and we all need to pay heed." Peter Phillips, Ph.D., President of the Media Freedom Foundation/Project Censored

"Today massive surveillance technologies threaten our privacy and our freedom. In this book, Elliot Cohen offers a set of workable, practical regulations to save us from a future that is almost too scary to imagine." James P. Sterba, University of Notre Dame, USA
