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. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection.

Forwards is backwards now, so we glance sideways at the strange lands through which we are all passing, knowing for certain only that our destination has disappeared.

The all-seeing eye is here.
At 11:30 am Eastern Time this morning, I’ll be outside Union Station in Washington, DC to help kick off a national demonstration against massive unconstitutional surveillance by the U.S. military and Department of Justice. If all goes well, there will be no way for you to find me; I hope to be lost in a [...]
Dara Kerr of CNet is the first reporter I’m aware of to provide coverage to tomorrow’s rally and march in Washington, DC against unconstitutional bulk surveillance of hundreds of millions of Americans’ activities, communications, whereabouts and associations. Kerr interviews Rainey Reitman, one of the primary organizers of the protest through his role at the Electronic [...]
Two days from now, an unknown number of Americans will march to the U.S. Capitol in a demonstration against massive unwarranted surveillance.
