To paraphrase Benjamin Franklin, anyone who trades liberty for security deserves neither. As useful technology expands, so do the threats to individual privacy and liberties brought about by the misuse of that technology. Recent revelations about the National Security Agency - how it collects information and from who - has raised serious concerns about whether we are protecting our liberties while ensuring security. Join us for a unique City Club event on August 23 when Oregon Senator Ron Wyden and Congressman Earl Blumenauer will share their perspectives on privacy and surveillance in the age of the internet.
