Wiretap the Internet

It has been some time since I've written, for which I apologize.

These days there is an overwhelming sense of fear... Paranoia is becoming a small but ever-present part of my life. I am convinced that all telecommunications are dangerous to me, that my government is an unstoppable force slowly poisoning the world around me and caging me in the process.

Today is "the day that all US network operators are required by US law to install back-doors to make it easier for cops to snoop on their traffic."

It has dawned on me the size of the hole into which we have been digging ourselves, and I realize now more than ever that between surveillance, an unsupported war, Human Sheep Syndrome (made it up... the American public is largely constituted by sheep, people who just walk around like fucking zombies nodding and agreeing with everything the government throws at them), and other evils, the bubble is getting too large too support its surface pressure.

I don't want to be here when it explodes. I have a great fear for the future of our country and of the world. At the very least we are headed for a huge economic bust, into which I will be released thanks to my graduation from college, and at the very worst we are headed for a dystopian, Orwellian slave-state in which our fears are exploited, our rights taken away, and our lives reduced to rubbish.

I may have to move to Canada sooner than anticipated.

(PS the government is spying on me because of this blog and undoubtedly for other reasons... and it's probably spying on you for reading this)
