Rights, Regulation, and the Technological Revolution

This chapter draws a contrast between two ideal-typical forms of regulation: the East Coast and the West Coast. It sketches a particular type of West Coast approach, ‘techno-regulation’. The chapter begins by discussing the nature of techno-regulation. It considers the objection that techno-regulation, even if it makes for safer societies, fails to respect the values of good governance, especially the values of transparency and accountability. It then turns to the deep objection that techno-regulation — by undermining notions of respect and responsibility — is corrosive of the conditions of moral community.

Keywords:   East Coast, West Coast, techno-regulation, moral community
