WIRED Now Admits the “Conspiracy Theorists” Were Right

A recent piece by the site’s Bruce Schneier lifts a veil on the mass surveillance activities taking place by the likes of the National Security Agency (NSA), whose cover was blown by whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013, and subsequently by several others. Initially, it was thought that such technological capacity only existed in sci-fi films, and that surely government agencies don’t have the time or resources to collect information on, well, everyone.

But now it turns out that this premise is actually a reality — the military-industrial complex, in the name of “national security” and the faux “war on terror” is actively collecting what Schneier explains is a treasure trove of metadata on practically every American. And it is doing so without consent or constitutional approval, with seemingly no recourse for those who would choose, if they could, to opt-out.

“We may not like to admit it, but we are under mass surveillance,” writes Schneier for WIRED, dispelling all accusations that government spying is some kind of loony conspiracy theory. …

[and more to the point, Mike Adams says:]

NSA and other treasonous organizations surveil Americans to maintain military dictatorship, not to protect “national security”

 Everything is in place for the “legal” institution of mass roundups, indefinite detention, disappearances and (secret) torture, just as “our” government did in latin america for decades with utter and total impunity to this day.   Do you really think the invisible government will be merciful to you simply because you live in its “homeland”?    Why do you think they’ve been exporting jobs and industrial infrastructure?   Why do you think rockefeller medicine has been been wrecking our families with obstetrical quackery and our health with industrial GAGriculture and toxic vaccines?  They are eugenicists.   As far as they’re concerned, our worth is defined by our usefulness to the state, but now we have become expendable because the state is attempting to go global.   There is to be an imposed “cultural revolution” (the shock doctrine) in this country to make it fit for competition with the other enslaved regions.
Everything hitler (an apprentice to wall street and london) did was “legal.”   His sin was that he got out of control, he was only supposed to attack russia.   Happens all the time with puppets.
It is to be expected that advances in physiology and psychology will give governments much more control over individual mentality than they now have even in totalitarian countries. Fichte laid it down that education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished. But in his day this was an unattainable ideal: what he regarded as the best system in existence produced Karl Marx. In future such failures are not likely to occur where there is dictatorship. Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible. Even if all are miserable, all will believe themselves happy, because the government will tell them that they are so. — Bertrand Russell, “The Impact of Science on Society” (1953)
