Man is born free, as Marx told us, but is everywhere in chains. The Internet promised freedom but is being turned into a tool of surveillance and control. The Foundation for Information Policy Research was launched in 1998 during ‘Crypto War 1’ in the run-up to the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act. After a quarter century, the crypto wars are back with the CSAR in the European Parliament and the Online Safety Act in the UK; privacy tussles extend from from medical privacy to AI regulation. It’s time to take stock and discuss what the past can teach and what the future might hold. What’s changed, what’s stayed the same, and what’s next?
