Analyzing Technology & State Power
In this unit’s learning module, you learned about technology and the state. Reflect on the moral dilemma of security vs. liberty. On the one hand, empowering the state with new technology enables it to protect citizens from crime better. On the other hand, empowering the state with new technology enhances its capacity to violate individual liberties. Now, identify a technological advancement we discussed this week. Please answer the following questions about this technology:
What potential benefits to the state does this technology promise?
What potential threats does this technology pose to the public if the state accesses it?
Do you think the benefits of allowing the state to use this technology outweigh the risks, OR do you think the risks of allowing the state to use this technology outweigh the benefits?
Explain your reasoning.
Please be sure to validate your opinions and ideas with citations and references in APA format.
