March 15, 2013 – Privacy

Body scans at the airport, candid pictures on Facebook, and a surveillance camera on every street corner: What happens to our privacy when we cannot escape public scrutiny? In the face of such a threat, how do we sustain a society with “liberty and justice for all”? My guest Garret Keizer is the author of seven books, most recently Privacy. He is also a contributing editor of Harper’s Magazine, a former Guggenheim Fellow, and a freelance writer and lecturer. Much of his writing has to do with matters of politics, religion, and justice.

The Unwanted Sound of Everything We Want
Help: The Original Human Dilemma
The Enigma of Anger: Essays on a Sometimes Deadly Sin
God of Beer
