It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye.

[…]
Just before Christmas 2013 the world found out that RSA, the corporation making millions selling its software to provide security through encryption, had taken millions more in money from the U.S. military’s National Security Agency in order to build a “backdoor” so that the NSA could break any RSA-based encryption to spy on the communications […]
he conference organizers assert that satanic cults insert neurological programs into the minds of their victims. Among these programs, they say, is one that makes therapists who push their patients to talk about “repressed memories” of satanic ritual abuse look stupid.
Governments big and small are tracking your whereabouts, most often without a warrant, with increasing frequency, and for reasons that are unnervingly personal and political.
