“Make no mistake: The state wants to know everything about you.”
They Can’t Handle the Truth
by Thomas L. Knapp
Make no mistake: The state wants to know everything about you, but politicians want absolute control over what you can know about them.
Keeping tabs on everything you do is crucial to “the public safety.” What government does? Careful! We wouldn’t want to compromise any “state secrets.”
From Joe Lieberman’s “Internet Kill Switch” proposal to legislation allowing the government to control where your browser can go to the ACTA treaty proposal which would take “intellectual property” enforcement international, increasing politicians’ power while insulating them from accountability, to the Obama regime’s latest demands for even more extensive surveillance powers, what we have here is clearly, to paraphrase Thomas Jefferson, “a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object … a design to reduce [us] under absolute [information] Despotism.”
