Don't Be Evil: Has Big Tech Betrayed Its Founding Principles – and All of Us?
"Don’t be evil." It’s an iconic phrase that was written into Google’s code of conduct during the early days of the company. It conveyed a utopian vision for technology that would make the world better, safer and more prosperous. But 20 years later, has big tech lived up to its founding principles, or has it lost its soul? Rana Foroohar, global business columnist at The Financial Times and global economic analyst at CNN, documents the bigger implications for how tech companies now operate. In her conversation with World Affairs CEO Philip Yun, Foroohar looks at the extent to which the FAANGs (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google) threaten democracies, livelihoods and our thinking.

George Floyd’s Killing Spurs San Francisco DA’s New Push for Police Accountability
This week, San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin unveiled a proposal that would require the city’s Civil Service Commission to ban the SFPD and Sheriff’s Department from hiring officers with prior misconduct records. San Francisco Sup. Shamann Walton introduced the proposal on Tuesday as a resolution supported by six other supervisors. Walton and Boudin claim that this new policy change would boost police accountability and protect the public from police misconduct. On Monday, Boudin joined four other current and former prosecutors in asking the California State Bar to prohibit district attorneys from accepting campaign donations from police unions. Boudin and the other prosecutors cited the killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, by Minneapolis police officers for their support of the proposal.

American Democracy Tested in Streets
As Americans across the country protest George Floyd’s death and call for solutions to systemic racism and police misconduct, President Trump has used force against protesters and called on governors to "dominate" the nation's streets with police power. Following the president’s guidance Monday, Attorney General William Barr ordered federal law enforcement authorities to remove peaceful protesters from a park near the White House. The officers then violently forced the protesters back to clear the streets so the president could walk and pose in front of a historic church holding a Bible.
