Surveillance Alert!!!
05 Oct 2004
Want to know exactly what you are up against with the new corporate government surveillance technologies and mind f**ks?
"Welcome to the Machine: Science, Surveillance, and the Culture of Control," by Derrick Jensen & George Draffan, covers the latest technologies that are being developed and used to track and control the population right now: Tracking thoughts by readouts of brain activity with recognition rates of over 90%, Identifying individuals by their gait – almost as accurate as a thumb print, RFID tags for tracking every item on the planet (now being implanted in humans), cameras and face scans, Ubersoldiers who can leap buildings and deflect bullets, "day after" pill that erases any remorse felt by soldiers who commit the most despicable of atrocities, electrodes placed near the pleasure center in a mammal's brain turning them into robots who "do the right thing," using child abusers to set up environmentalists, the Patriot Act, Genetic Engineering, Nanotechnology, and many more extensively researched facts that will frighten your socks off!

But the book also exposes the philosophy and delusions that the machine culture uses to coerce us into submitting willingly to lives of slavery, while it trains us to police ourselves. This indepth analysis will challenge your perceptions of this culture, your role in it, your role fighting it, and give insight to even the most seasoned activists.

My bookstore just got it in, but you can read excerpts online:
