FBI NSL Letters: One for Every Thousand Americans.

2 statements

The FBI has issued about 300,000 National Security Letters in the past ten years. The United States has 300,000,000 people. That means the FBI has issued one NSL for every 1,000 Americans.

Do you know of at least one thousand people? Chances are, one of them is the subject of an NSL.

NSLs are letters that compel companies to hand over information on their customers, and remain secret about it. They are not allowed to inform their customers of the FBI inquiry. It is the ultimate Kafka police state tactic, and the FBI seems to just love using it.

How many actual terrorists have the FBI caught thanks to the use of these letters? One. One terrorist was caught with help from an NSL. The rest of their catches occurred without any help from NSLs. Surely the FBI is using these letters responsibly and with due diligence, no?

Private citizens should have the same ability to secretly serve NSLs on the FBI itself. Maybe then we can find J. Edgar Hoover's drag queen outfits. Who wants to bet that Robert Swan Mueller is also a closet queen? Combine his middle name with that stupid ass expression on his face, and it's not too hard to envision him as being some kind of pansy or cockgobbler.

Do you hear me, Mueller? I'm accusing you of being a homosexual and a cross dresser! Why don't you serve Blogspot with an NSL for my info now?

1984 vs Brave New World

0 statements

I found an amazing post on the website Letters of Note, in which Aldous Huxley writes a letter to George Orwell after the publishing of the book 1984. If you haven't read both 1984 and Brave New World, I highly suggest you immediately obtain copies of both books and begin reading them posthaste. Anyway, here is the letter:

Wrightwood. Cal.
21 October, 1949

Dear Mr. Orwell,

It was very kind of you to tell your publishers to send me a copy of your book. It arrived as I was in the midst of a piece of work that required much reading and consulting of references; and since poor sight makes it necessary for me to ration my reading, I had to wait a long time before being able to embark on Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Agreeing with all that the critics have written of it, I need not tell you, yet once more, how fine and how profoundly important the book is. May I speak instead of the thing with which the book deals — the ultimate revolution? The first hints of a philosophy of the ultimate revolution — the revolution which lies beyond politics and economics, and which aims at total subversion of the individual's psychology and physiology — are to be found in the Marquis de Sade, who regarded himself as the continuator, the consummator, of Robespierre and Babeuf. The philosophy of the ruling minority in Nineteen Eighty-Four is a sadism which has been carried to its logical conclusion by going beyond sex and denying it. Whether in actual fact the policy of the boot-on-the-face can go on indefinitely seems doubtful. My own belief is that the ruling oligarchy will find less arduous and wasteful ways of governing and of satisfying its lust for power, and these ways will resemble those which I described in Brave New World. I have had occasion recently to look into the history of animal magnetism and hypnotism, and have been greatly struck by the way in which, for a hundred and fifty years, the world has refused to take serious cognizance of the discoveries of Mesmer, Braid, Esdaile, and the rest.

Partly because of the prevailing materialism and partly because of prevailing respectability, nineteenth-century philosophers and men of science were not willing to investigate the odder facts of psychology for practical men, such as politicians, soldiers and policemen, to apply in the field of government. Thanks to the voluntary ignorance of our fathers, the advent of the ultimate revolution was delayed for five or six generations. Another lucky accident was Freud's inability to hypnotize successfully and his consequent disparagement of hypnotism. This delayed the general application of hypnotism to psychiatry for at least forty years. But now psycho-analysis is being combined with hypnosis; and hypnosis has been made easy and indefinitely extensible through the use of barbiturates, which induce a hypnoid and suggestible state in even the most recalcitrant subjects.

Within the next generation I believe that the world's rulers will discover that infant conditioning and narco-hypnosis are more efficient, as instruments of government, than clubs and prisons, and that the lust for power can be just as completely satisfied by suggesting people into loving their servitude as by flogging and kicking them into obedience. In other words, I feel that the nightmare of Nineteen Eighty-Four is destined to modulate into the nightmare of a world having more resemblance to that which I imagined in Brave New World. The change will be brought about as a result of a felt need for increased efficiency. Meanwhile, of course, there may be a large scale biological and atomic war — in which case we shall have nightmares of other and scarcely imaginable kinds.

Thank you once again for the book.

Yours sincerely,

Aldous Huxley

LulzSec Really Was a False Flag

0 statements

When LulzSec first made a splash on the hacking world, something felt off to me. I started mentioning to friends that I thought LulzSec was either a false flag or at least in bed with government.

As it turns out, the head of LulzSec works for the FBI. The article says he started working for the FBI after his arrest, but that is part of the false flag. He was always working for the FBI. LulzSec was dreamed up by the government.
