The proposition is ‘Only the wicked need fear government spying’ on 31 March in Sydney at the first IQ2 debate of 2015.

Under proposed new laws, phone and internet records will be stored for two years, making it easier for the government to look into our private lives. Should national security have access to who we call, our emails, daily habits and more?

IQ2 (a project of St James Ethics Centre) organises a number of public debates in Sydney and Melbourne each year. The purpose of the IQ2 series is to raise the level of public discourse on challenging issues by providing a forum for discussion, grounded in facts and informed by reasoned analysis. To this end, a significant part of the evening is set aside for an open floor period, giving attendees the opportunity to put points or questions to the speakers, and the audience is polled both before and after the debate.
