I think a better title would be ‘“There isn’t time. By 2025 it will all be over. – Eben Moglen’.
I haven’t watched the linked video yet. I saw Moglen speak a couple times at LibrePlanet in Boston. He’s an powerful orator and sadly I believe that his forecast is generally correct.
I’ve seen people criticize his warnings as unrealistic. I disagree… It appears to me that we do actually live in a hard scifi world. Aggregates really are more powerful than individuals. Nothing in physics guarantees us a noble future–we’ll have to make it for ourselves, and that’s simply not the trajectory we are currently on.
The criticism I have for him is that he tends to look at his own pet project, the FreedomBox, as a solution for more than one problem. He’s not wrong, but he’s unnecessarily specific. If you perform s/FreedomBox/FreedomBox-like/g on his speeches, my criticism would evaporate. (It’s supposed to be a badass multipurpose cyberpunk router; it’ll only work if it is widely deployed.)
As for his recommendation to start barricading the doors to our minds, now… Serious question: are you personally doing anything in that direction? I personally am merely bugging my non-techie friends about impending doom (so far, nobody has offered to drop everything!). The ones that agree point out that the same thing has been happening in every sphere except computers since before they were born.
