Do you want Professor X poking around in your head? Did the Jedi overuse their “not the droids you’re looking for” hand wave trick? This week, Dr. Greg Haley joins us for a discussion of the ethics of mind-reading, and a discussion of how it relates to discussions of surveillance and civil liberties in our own world.
Spoilers for the X-Men franchise and the TV show Babylon 5.
