Facecrime

From Billy Beck:

"It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself–anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face…; was itself a punishable offense. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime…"

(George Orwell, 1984, Book 1, Chapter 5)


Do catch Paul Joseph Watson's integrations of technology, ethics and politics at the bleeding-edge of your consciousness. While we're in this groove (rut? -- ed.), don't miss Bill St. Clair's link to Glenn Greenwald at Salon.com.

My favorite Bitten-Snake-Handler Quote-O-Matic from that one:

"This regulation is outrageous. Consider me old-fashioned, but I believe you need to show some evidence of criminality before you are granted unfettered access to the private financial affairs of every individual and company that dares to conduct financial transactions overseas."

[hah!] [ohdear] That's one Mr. Peter Djinis, "former FinCEN executive assistant director for regulatory policy".

Right. That guy is finally outraged. I guess that he might at last understand the nature of things, now. "Criminality" is in what they call it, when it's handy to the culture of their power.

You're passing into history, Djinis, in the shadow of the machine that you helped to build to their purposes, and they'll get you, too.

You want to get rid of the face scanning cameras, the super-orwellian police state? You get rid of those administering the apparatus at the local level.

Call for an emergency recall election, the reasons matter not except for nailing the bastards. You run a full campaign ticket of candidates to sweep the town or county government clean because nothing less will succeed. When you win you not only scrap the cameras you clean out the government and police, repatriate all the investments in the Consolidated Annual Financial Report-cash em all in, slash taxes and give grants to local small businessmen... no not the local bigwigs but the guy who'd like to keep his family general store going.

Advertise the results, repeat in the next town.

Or you could shoot out the cameras but then you'd have to shoot the cops defending the cameras, then all the other cops will becoming to defend the brotherhood and then you've got a shooting war.

Guess which one's easier?

I'm betting Option No. 2 is not only "easier" but more likely to succeed.

All y'all who cling to the notion that Roberts Rules of Order will prevail are delude beyond the pale.

If the standard had been "what's easier". then not one RAF pilot would have gotten out of bed during the summer of 1940.

This is made of FAIL.
