In an interview with Morley Walker of Winnipeg Free Press (14.09.13), A.C. Grayling, a Consulting Editor for Interlitq, states:

Both the increase in anxiety about terrorism and the rapid development of electronic technologies for surveillance have meant that the liberties we fought for so hard and long for have been eroded to some extent. We have to remember what Benjamin Franklin said: “Those who would give up their liberties in exchange for security don’t deserve either.”
