Hello MSU Faculty and Students

 

This Tuesday, October 1,  at 6 p.m. in Bolin 127 we will be holding our first Prof Edwards Night at the Movies for this year. Over the summer U.S. employee Edward Snowden leaked classified information about the NSA program that was collecting various types of electronic information about American citizens. This raised significant concerns about the balance between civil liberties and our national security. We would like to explore these issues with you by examining a similar case: the case of Daniel Ellsberg. Daniel Ellsberg was involved in raising a series of issues related to the US War in Vietnam. To explore these issues we will be watching a movie that examines his role in what we now know as the Pentagon Papers. Titled The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers provides a provocative investigation into the role of civil liberties and national security during uncertain times. Join us for this interesting discussion and movie and of course there will be popcorn. I look forward to seeing you there.
