Corporations, lobbyists, venture capitalists, and other wealthy
private special interests spread misinformation, confuse the issues,
and manipulate policy makers. This undermines our society’s
democratic institutions, and their ability to act in the public
interest. Technology policy must balance the needs of the many,
rather than benefit the powerful few.
The Center for Emerging Technology Policy is building a
non-partisan interdisciplinary coalition to collaborate and
coordinate on technology-related issues.
If we wish to create a more democratic, egalitarian, and
safer future for those who follow, then better informed policy
decisions must be made today. We must speak with one voice
to combat the suffering caused by exploitative technologies.
