Electronic Surveillance is Everywhere

We live in the golden era of surveillance; every phone is designed to be tapped, the Internet passes through snooping equipment of agencies that are so vast and unaccountable that we hardly know their bounds. Corporations are forced (though some are willing enough!) to hand over our data and data of those whom we love. Our lives are ruled by networks and yet those networks are not ruled by our consent. These networks keep us hooked up but it is not without costs that they keep us hooked together. The businesses, the governments, and the individuals that power those networks are incentivized to spy, to betray and to do it silently. The architecture of the very systems produces these outcomes.—This is tyranny.

War Profiteering

Billions and billions of taxpayer dollars go into the blackhole of government subsidies and programs every year…the majority of this money ends up with the 1%…the cronies of our senators and congresspersons. It’s not used to create more jobs…it’s used to line the nest of the recipients.

No body cares; this 1%, and the government officials they pay-off, have brainwashed and confused the common person so well they even end up defending the rich and ruthless traitors…think tea-party.
