Information Technology as a Universal Solvent for Removing State Stains
By David R. Henderson
This article appeared in the Spring 2000 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Will the new information technology abet government repression, à la Big Brother, or will it mostly promote individual liberty, as the old information technology helped to do in the Soviet Union? Hint: Even without the widespread use of encryption software, the Internet is already helping people shrug off the crushing yoke of the state.
