The Cybersecurity Directive Goes Viral

(ActivistPost) – The latest National Security Directive presented by the establishment mouthpiece, The Wall Street Journal, indicates that the marketing campaign for Cybersecurity has just gone viral.

The Perfect Citizen program markets the idea of corporations and government working together in a joint effort to thwart Cyberterrorism.  This is truly a message designed to be spread far and wide, as corporations can sell infrastructure upgrades to terrified American citizens who once again are being required to trade liberty for supposed security.  Taxpayers already have provided billions to the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative as funding for their own cyberprison.  Both political parties have supported the campaign of perpetual National Security, and the new program is yet another example of how they agree upon initiatives that will ultimately benefit corporate interests: Continue reading

There are two problems with Al Gore. First, he’s a demagogue who lacks an appreciation for the ethics and methods of science.
