Sir Tim Berners-Lee, who created the [worldwide] web in 1989, described Prism as “an intrusion on basic human rights that threatens the very foundations of a democratic society.” - http://www.itproportal.com/2013/06/10/tim-berners-lee-on-prism-nsa-snooping-threatens-the-foundations-of-democracy/

"I'm cold." - Snowden, hopefully in Iceland...

Thank Snowden for taking the plunge!

btw - You notice that these famous internet whistleblowers like to find refuge with countries where there are lots of sardines? Me too! Snowden is in Hong Kong, but he really wants to be in ICELAND. And that WikiLeaks guy - Julian Assange - he tried Sweden and then sought asylum through ECUADOR! I'm telling you... these guys are so SMART and so GOOD because they like to eat lots of healthy fish! And that's why Northern Europe is so progressive - just like the Northwest USA - and the Northeast USA. And that's why everyone is fighting in the Middle East. Fish oil! Not crude oil! Please, support products from Ecuador and Iceland, like sardines. You'll grow a big head! Just like the alien overlords!

It's a LIBERTARIAN thing...
[Salon.com] Doom because apparently the only people willing to stand up for freedom are those that have a worldview so completely fucked that they would ultimately make things worse. Snowden believed the capitalist fairy tale that Hong Kong is a near utopia, and then failed to note that it has an extradition agreement with the US; it will be interesting to see how that turns out for him. He also employs that typically Randian definition of "self-interest" which is supposed to be free of empathy (if we look to Rand herself to define it) yet seems to mean exactly empathy the way it is employed by most libertarians. He blames the government solely for the violations of our privacy and yet fails to note that the work is being carried out by private subcontractors like the one he works for, and apparently he has no problem with the private corporations that collected the information in the first place. If only he had included a 70-page speech on the ultimate triumph of the "ideal man". In short, if this guy represents the heroes that have come to save us, we will be descending into a libertarian utopia that will make Orwell's 1984 look merciful. Still, its nice that someone did something. - Edward Snowden: A libertarian hero - (credits to here: http://so-very-doomed.livejournal.com/857876.html ) - (where have you heard that before... hmmm??? - - - Hey! They're saying, "Randian," now! I might have started that term!! I am very important!)

- btw - Hong Kong has some exceptions in its extraditions policy vis-a-vis USA, and I believe Snowden might have been going for such. I don't think this wasn't thought out ahead of time, yo. He might only be passing through Hong Kong. Maybe getting a pay-off or something. From the aliens...

The dirty war on WikiLeaks

The dirty war on WikiLeaks, (via Democratic Underwear):

War by media, says current military doctrine, is as important as the battlefield. This is because the real enemy is the public at home, whose manipulation and deception is essential for starting an unpopular colonial war. Like the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, attacks on Iran and Syria require a steady drip-effect on readers' and viewers' consciousness. This is the essence of a propaganda that rarely speaks its name.

To the chagrin of many in authority and the media, WikiLeaks has torn down the facade behind which rapacious western power and journalism collude. This was an enduring taboo; the BBC could claim impartiality and expect people to believe it. Today, war by media is increasingly understood by the public, as is the trial by media of WikiLeaks' founder and editor Julian Assange....

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Essential ACTA Resources

Further evidence of secret US indictment of Julian Assange

Internal emails obtained from the US private intelligence firm Stratfor indicate that the Obama administration has had a secret indictment against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for more than 12 months. The emails, published by WikiLeaks this week, also point to the close involvement of the Australian Labor government and intelligence agencies in the operation against Assange, an Australian citizen. - http://www.wsws.org/articles/2012/mar2012/wiki-m01.shtml

FBI might shutdown the Internet on March 8
RT - Millions of computer users across the world could be blocked off from the Internet as early as March 8 if the FBI follows through with plans to yank a series of servers originally installed to combat corruption. Who, exactly, will be affected? Security company IID (Internet Identity) believes that half of all Fortune 500 companies and more than two dozen major government entities in the US are still currently infected with the worm as of early 2012. Unless they take the proper steps to eradicate the Trojan from their systems, millions of users worldwide will be left hog-tied, helplessly attempting to navigate to nonexistent servers and, in effect, without the Web.
