Herland Report - Totalitarian Rule means end of Democracy

I've got addicted to Twitter recently, probably because it works better with my new phone. But Bill Binney won't go near twitter, or Facebook, or leave any likes anywhere, because he knows the NSA are watching everybody. And they listen to every phone call you make and read all your emails.

I read on the internet yesterday how they a are hunting everywhere for photographs of you to build up a facial recognition database. They go to Facebook, Google, Twitter, where ever.

Bill Binney says he designed Thinthread - the software he made for spying on people to counter terrorism - to be very selective leaving most people alone, but the NSA didn't want it, they wanted Big Data instead so they could spy on everyone, except it collects so much data that it misses the terrorists and their planed attacks on the public.

If you watched the movie about Bill Binney - which I have posted here in the past - you would have seen how the NSA bought software from a private company instead paying $millions for it, but it was useless compared to Bill Binney's elegant program, and so it misssed 9/11 where Bill Binney's one wouldn't have done. But everyone was making lots of money out of it - the tax payer scammed again.

This is a good interview.

It's democracy that brought us this unversal snooping program. Get your cause and effect figured out.

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

If we don't have a democracy, who runs the show? The rich and powerful.
