Individual freedom – individual-i

Bruce Schneier, CTO of Counterpane Systems, author of several books on security and crypto and security blogger, has launched individual-i, a movement devoted to the defence of individual liberties in today’s world of ever more eroded rights. Quoting the individual-i site:

[individual-i] represents the right to privacy and anonymity in the information age. It represents the rights to an open government, due process, and equal protection under the law. It represents the right to live surveillance free, and not to be marked as “suspicious” for wanting these other rights.

This very much meshes with my personal worldview which encourages privacy, liberty and freedom of choice within a liberal, secular humanist legal framework. Yay, Bruce!
