In his book The Net Delusion: The Dark Side of Internet Freedom Evgeny Morozov, contributing editor to Foreign Policy, argues that the Internet may do less to democratize states and more to maintain dictators and hurt dissidents. The author examines the ways governments are using the internet to maintain political power such as China’s “50 cent party,” which pays its 280,000 members 50 cents for each pro-government comment left online. Evgeny Morozov discussed his book in conversation with Susan Glasser, editor-in-chief of Foreign Policy and responded to questions from members of the audience.
This book launch event at the New America Foundation in Washington, D.C., was co-sponsored by Foreign Policy magazine. close
