Richard Stallman: Cell Phones Are “Stalin’s Dream”

“I don’t have a cell phone. I won’t carry a cell phone … It’s Stalin’s dream. Cell phones are tools of Big Brother. I’m not going to carry a tracking device that records where I go all the time, and I’m not going to carry a surveillance device that can be turned on to eavesdrop.”

— If you’ve been playing at home, add cell phones to the list of things that master hacker, GNU creator, and web freedom advocate Richard Stallman has a problem with. Speaking with NetworkWorld, Stallman called cell phones a tool for totalitarians.
