The People versus the Powerful is the oldest story in human history. At no point in history have the Powerful wielded so much control. At no point in history has the active and informed involvement of the People, all of them, been more absolutely required.
William Rivers Pitt
In 1947 George Orwell wrote his master piece ‘1984’ (promptly published next year 1948) introducing the figure and concept of “Big Brother” that millions around the world have read and many thought of Orwell’s prophecies brought in that chef-d’oeuvres as being pure fantasies.
In fact they weren’t.. Knowing that his account coincided perfectly with what he knew while working as an analyst for the British MI6 during WWII, where he got to know the contents of many secret documents among which the “UKUSA Security Agreement” signed in the very same year he later on wrote his novel.
The agreement stipulated the plan to provide the technology necessary for a signals intelligence (SIGINT) collection and analysis network operated on behalf of the five signatory states: Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States; a technological revolutionary giant which came to be known as “ECHELON”, reportedly created to monitor the military and diplomatic communications of the Soviet Union and its Eastern Bloc allies during the Cold War, but since the end of the Cold War it is believed to search also for hints of terrorist plots, drug dealers' plans, and political and diplomatic intelligence. It has also been described as the only software system which controls the download and dissemination of the intercept of commercial satellite trunk communications.
However, the United States paranoia drove it further on to explore and exploit the scientific achievements, which ever since then served only to provide more sophisticated tools for making the global hegemony a feasible objective.
Hence, came to the light more ideas supported by a lot more acts, pacts and bills; generously financed and endorsed.. All in the name of: “Protecting the American Democracy, and ensuring maximum security to maintain the American Way of Life”. Obviously, brought in such wording, not a single person could object or doubt.
But once we put together what really has been going on since 1947 until today, we’ll be surprised to find out how sharp was the plan ever since day one, because after UKUSA gave birth to ECHELON, came:
Ø The Project for the New American Century (PNAC);
Ø The Patriot Acts I & II;
Ø The Domestic Security Enhancement Act; and now the last invention:
You can know more about each of these titles easily on the web.. But remain certain that all, from ECHELON till PRISM (and who knows what else is orbiting around earth or still in experimental phases prior to entering in operation), are systematically deleting one bit at the time our rights and our freedom.. They are set to render us in the end the frightened and obedient subjects necessary for the easy governance.. To convert into the ones who are willing to let go their privacies and their voices in exchange for the illusion of a bit more security and safety, in a world where the prosperous growth of the Military Industries and International Arms Trade, whereby the USA controls more than 85% of its global transactions; marks the decay of the Human Specie.
We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.
