Be Very Afraid

Little Brother
By Cory Doctorow

Imagine what could happen if the paranoid were allowed to have all the power they wanted to make everyone safe. This book follows the struggle of a few teenagers as they battle Department of Homeland Security following a terrorist attack in San Francisco. Unchecked authority is very dangerous and it is the responsibility of the masses to resist it when necessary. That is why the founding fathers spent so much time creating the Declaration if Independence and then the Constitution to ensure that power never went unchecked. This book will make you rethink a few things about privacy and I recommend all read it, especially teenagers (as it is a young adult book).
