Do we have the resources to keep a check on cyberhate thanks to Prism and Tempora?

Intelligence whistleblowers like Edward Snowden have not only shown the extent of global surveillance by the NSA and GCHQ, but how much governments like the United States flirt with totalitarianism and invest billions of dollars in trying to find a needle in a haystack.

Writes the Anti-Defamation League, which was founded in 1913 to address anti-Semitism and all forms of racism: ”With an estimated 2.4 billion people online around the world and at least 50 billion Web pages, it’s impossible for companies to police cyberspace by themselves. That’s why each of us has to take responsibility for reporting cyberhate when we see it.”

Looking at global surveillance tools like Prism and Tempora, which were recently revealed by Snowden, don’t we now have the resources to report and locate cyberhate?

Something to think about.
