ACLU+HitRecord’s Mini-Documentary: Technology’s Impact on Democracy

The ACLU recently partnered with Joseph Gordon Levitt’s online collaboration site, HitRecord, to bring together different perspectives from all over the world in an effort to explore the way technology is influencing democracy. Does it give everyone a voice, or does it lead to data-mining manipulation and surveillance of the masses?

There is no clear-cut answer given by the documentary, which is truly a breath of unbiased fresh air in this world of agendas and propaganda. Amongst the noise of polarized opinions, it’s wonderful to see an objective exploration of a topic that includes such a vast variety of people: from Emma Watson to Edward Snowden, and from a young woman in Kazakhstan all the way across the globe to our very own Curious Apes’ editor based out of Portland, Oregon.
