A new US State Department policy requires that all visa applicants to the US submit social media, email, & phone number histories for the past five years. This policy is not just an invasion of privacy but is another way governments police & censor our interactions on social media since we have used it to broaden democracy & international solidarity. The more we allow these incursions, the less social media will be a venue for us to communicate & collaborate in the struggles against tyranny. Some claim we are helpless to oppose this. Since when has freedom ever conceded defeat without a struggle?
