Many countries around the world block or filter Internet content, denying access to information that they deem too sensitive for ordinary citizens -- most often about politics, but sometimes relating to sexuality, culture, or religion. Access Denied documents and analyzes Internet filtering practices in more than three dozen countries, offering the first rigorously conducted study of an accelerating trend. Internet filtering takes place in more than three dozen states worldwide, including many countries in Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa. Related Internet content-control mechanisms are also in place in Canada, the United States and a cluster of countries in Europe. Drawing on a just-completed survey of global Internet filtering undertaken by the OpenNet Initiative (a collaboration of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School, the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto, the Oxford Internet Institute at Oxford University, and the University of Cambridge) and relying on work by regional experts and an extensive network of researchers, Access Denied examines the political, legal, social, and cultural contexts of Internet filtering in these states from a variety of perspectives. Chapters discuss the mechanisms and politics of Internet filtering, the strengths and limitations of the technology that powers it, the relevance of international law, ethical considerations for corporations that supply states with the tools for blocking and filtering, and the implications of Internet filtering for activist communities that increasingly rely on Internet technologies for communicating their missions. Reports on Internet content regulation in forty different countries follow, with each two-page country profile outlining the types of content blocked by category and documenting key findings.

Schlafentzug, Dauerlärm, Todesdrohung: Mohamedou Slahis Geständnis wurde unter Folter erpresst: Er ist einer der Hauptverdächtigen des 11. Septembers. Obwohl ein Gericht bereits 2010 seine Freilassung angeordnet hat, bleibt er bis Ende 2016 inhaftiert. Sein ergreifender Bericht ist die bisher einzige bekannte Chronik eines Guantanamo-Gefangenen, die in der Haft verfasst wurde. Slahis Gefangenschaft dokumentiert fast ein ganzes Jahrzehnt des Kampfes gegen den weltweiten Terrorismus. Donald Rumsfeld – mit der Akte »Slahi« vertraut – autorisierte die Behörden, den mutmaßlichen Al-Qaida-Verschwörer intensiven Verhören zu unterziehen – und nahm dabei auch Folterungen in Kauf. Im Jahr 2005 begann Slahi seine Geschichte zu erzählen. Emotional und zugleich um Fairness bemüht, berichtet er von seinen Entführungen durch die Geheimdienste, den Folterungen und den Begegnungen mit seinen Peinigern, aber auch mit Menschen, die sich ihm zuwandten. Der erste Bericht eines Guantanamo-Gefangenen, dessen offizielle Freigabe durch jahrelange juristische Anstrengungen erzwungen wurde.

Narratives based on conspiratorial and paranoid thinking have become increasingly prominent throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. From the prosaic to the outlandish, conspiracy theories involve aliens and Nazis, underground bases and mind control technology. They range from sinister tales of malevolent reptilian beings infiltrating our government to fears of the New World Order rounding up patriotic Americans and putting them into internment camps. These stories and their underlying concerns have a long history in the U.S. and have often been bolstered by revelations of real conspiracies and cover-ups by private and public entities. This book examines conspiracy theories and the narratives constructed by those who believe and propagate them, providing a unique view of U.S. history and highlighting fears both founded and unfounded.

Earth has been controlled for eons by the 'dark forces' by instilling a project of 'fear', and we have all been deceived on a grand scale. They have achieved this by stealth through their secret societies, groups, governments and institutes to create a New World Order. They have controlled populations and culled humans through their man-made diseases such as Ebola and HIV/AIDS. They control humanity with prescription drugs, technology, food additives, vaccines and they suppress the cures for cancer. They control the media, create wars and initiate acts of terrorism. They control politics, banking, education, sciences and religions. They are followers of Satanism and some are paedophiles. They use mind control programmes and control the illegal drugs trade, manipulate the weather and have introduced a 'police state' and have suppressed free-energy. This is part of the spiritual battle between the 'dark forces' and the 'forces of light'. Welcome to the lunatic asylum that is planet Earth.

Bereits in seinen ersten Artikeln über die NSA-Affäre brachte Glenn Greenwald das ganze Ausmaß der Massenüberwachung im digitalen Zeitalter ans Licht. Seine Berichterstattung, für die er mit dem Pulitzer-Preis ausgezeichnet wurde, löste international ein politisches Erdbeben aus. In seinem Buch deckt Greenwald anhand einer Fülle von brisanten Geheimdokumenten aus dem Archiv des Whistleblowers Edward Snowden die illegalen Praktiken der amerikanischen Geheimdienste auf. Alles und jeder wird ausgespäht, die Bevölkerung steht unter Kollektivverdacht. Meinungsfreiheit wird im Namen der Sicherheit unterdrückt, und es gibt keine Privatsphäre mehr – nirgends.
