them ruthlessly: without letting us vote on it.

Never before could someone walk up to you and number you by scanning
your fingerprints. A number that is yours and yours alone.

You have been numbered for all time.

No ID card needed once portable fingerprint scanners are deployed all over!

If the government suddenly ordered all citizens to be numbered with an
indelible invisible ink on their arms so they were permanently numbered;
so law enforcement could scan them at will: there would be a revolt.

Yet that is what is happening.

Fingerprints, scanned into a computer, are a number.

The number is inescapably yours.

Modern technology means they don't have to put the number on you, they can
read it off of you by minutely examining your body.

And: it is the NSA driving the fingerprint-rollout of the national ID card.

o Killing the CALEA legislation, which orders all communications
equipment be DESIGNED so the Government can spy on it.

o Dismantling domestic ECHELON, the Government listening in on our
domestic phone calls.

o A Cabinet-level U.S. Privacy Commission, with teeth.

The "average" American has no idea why cryptography is important to them.

It is the only way to begin preventing massive illegal domestic spying.

Currently, there are no restrictions on domestic use of unlimited strength
cryptography. That is not because the Government hasn't complained about
child pornographers or terrorists or other criminals who might use it.

No, that's the reason they are giving for why U.S. companies can't EXPORT
products, such as web browsers, outside U.S. territory, without compromising
it with Government "Key Recovery"; i.e. made stupider and breakable.

Why such an indirect control on what they claim is a domestic problem?

Because that is how 'The Creeping Police State' works.

Slowly, bit-by-bit.

Slowly, State-by-State everyone in the U.S. is being fingerprinted.

The FBI is now advocating biometric capture of all newborns too.

This is an interesting manifesto, please take the time to read it.

Cryptography can be used to keep private: Internet traffic, such as email,
and telephone conversations (PGP phone). A version of PGP phone that looks
and works like a normal telephone --- but can't be spied upon --- would
eventually become wide-spread.

It begins to change the mind-set that the Police State is inevitable.

threat, and not an anonymous hoax threat?

The American people are not the only ones the NSA/FBI lie to...

Notice how secrecy keeps playing a major part in all this...June 28, 1996,
NYT, "Lawmaker Tells of High Cost of Keeping Secret Data Secret", the House
intelligence committee said, not even including the CIA, the U.S. spends
FIVE POINT SIX BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR (twice the annual combined budgets of
the FBI and DEA) on "a document classification system stuck on autopilot,
indiscriminately stamping 'Top Secret' on thousands of documents every year."

ECHELON generates 90% of those documents. Machines.

5/24/1992 The Washington Post Parade Magazine:
The Pentagon even labelled as not only SECRET but NOFORN---which means
they cannot even be shared with our allies---anti-American cartoons that
ran in IRAQI newspapers, even more than a year later [when or if they ever
declassified them I don't know]. One typically ludicrous cartoon depicts
drunken GIs lounging in the Saudi sand with shapely U.S. servicewomen
dressed in unusual military attire: bras, shorts and high heels.

NOFORN level security for IRAQI cartoons. Clueless autopilot secrecy.

The ultimate in bureaucratic capture:

It's the 1990s now.

The harassment was publicized by 2600, and a reporter talked to the head
of the mall's security: he let slip that the Secret Service ordered them
to harass 2600's lawful peaceful public meeting.

That was definitely news.

The mall security manager then denied what he said about Secret Service
ordering the harassment: luckily the reporter recorded his conversation.

CPSR [Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility] and Marc Rotenberg
of EPIC [Electronic Privacy Information Center] began FOIA [U.S. Freedom
of Information Act] proceedings to find out about this incident.

The case raises significant issues of freedom of speech and assembly,
privacy and government accountability.

In response to an FOIA asking why this happened, the Secret Service
responded: "We are sure no one knows why we had the meeting disrupted".

They have made a mockery of FOIA.

This mockery of FOIA is still being litigated by EPIC.

An intentional illegal government surveillance program...it just never stops.

Marc Rotenberg has gotten the Secret Service to admit in court that this was
done to "investigate hacking into a company's telephone switch."

Since when did the "investigative" techniques used by the Secret Service
become valid for use in the United States? Going up to a bunch of mall
patrons and DEMANDING IDENTIFICATION from them and searching them?

How exactly was this supposed to further investigate a switch hacking?

incorrect, see http://www.2600.com.

When Stafford Beer monitored factories and banks to give the government
the necessary tools to govern the economy effectively, he chose to
monitor national infrastructure of the industrial variety.

with cybernetic control in the wrong hands:

* If Project Cybersyn were altered, and the tools used are not the

Unlike Stafford Beer, the NSA and FBI have been moving to monitor not
only our bank transactions, but also telephone, fax, Internet, telex
communications of all people and businesses and with CALEA want that
capability given to them at the design stage.

Cybernetic-level monitoring of our electronic systems.

What are they trying to control?

What are they trying to exert MAXIMUM CYBERNETIC CONTROL over?

It is INSANE to design our systems for government monitoring.

It is a MASSIVE cybernetic operation, astounding in its scope.
They (obviously) are attempting to do this world-wide too.
It is a true cybernetic Beast, out of control and about to
devour the world.

In '1984', the ubiquitous 'telescreen' monitored everyone in their homes.

As I have demonstrated --- as if you needed me to tell you --- our phone
conversations are too private, too personal to be monitored in a dragnet
fashion. You find out everything about someone: who their friends are,
what their opinion is on a wide range of matters, whether and who they
are having sex with, the full range of somone's activities and emotions.
