These people were definitely certainly very interested to see them and now have actually been having fun with those things. We appreciate you actually being well kind and then for having some good subject areas most people are really desirous to be informed on. My honest regret for not expressing gratitude to earlier.

I’ve known this for most of my life, and I’m sad that it took a suicide of a decent person to wake other people up to it. (Not everyone either. I’ve noticed lots of people making excuses for the State here, but it is not nice to face up to what our system has become.)

It does relate to Dr. Martin Luther King in one way. If the State had chosen to handle the Civil Rights movement the way it would handle such Civil Disobedience nowadays, it would likely still be illegal for me to enter a restaurant with my fiance, let alone plan to marry her. demirdöküm servis

It started out as being about who gets access to taxpayer funded research, but now it is about the way the Iron Heel of the State comes down, hard, on anyone who dares to protest.

There was a school of thought, which seemed to be picking up steam, that the way to handle the problem was with handcuffs and brass knucks. Enforcement! Regulation! New regulations! Tighter regulations! All out for the campaign against piracy! No quarter! Build more prisons! Harsher sentences! demirdöküm

I’ve watched the War on Information heat up as well. Lots of people have noticed it.

And we don’t even notice it. We can’t even see the extremism that we have allowed to creep into our law.”

Hmm, I think lots of us have seen it. I’ve thought for most of my life that we live in a police state, albeit one that is less efficient than Nazi Germany. Sometimes I call it a “soft police state,” but somehow that doesn’t quite fit. I tend to think of Russia under the Tsars for a parallel. eca kombi servisi

“When there are plenty [sic - actually there are not “plenty"] of entities out there, companies like, there’s a company called Palantir who’s built a technology to make it absolutely, make you absolutely confident that a particular bit of data has been used precisely as the government says it’s supposed to be used. “

It’s because you haven’t considered the nature of power.

Read up on Jon Corzine and MF Global. Corzine stole a billion-with-a-B dollars in a perfectly trackable electronic medium. We’re not talking cash smuggled in a duffle bag. Perfectly traceable electronic transactions. Regulators, poring over this, have concluded they have no idea where the money went and Corzine committed no crime. Customers have lost their cash to electronic wire transfers and the government, despite having perfect electronic records, can’t get it back for them.

Why is this? It’s because Corzine is rich, and well-connected, and has good lawyers. If you stole a Billion dollars, you’d better bet the government would nail your ass to the wall. If you stole a hundred dollars they’d send you to prison for decades. If you stole it electronically every transaction would be reversed. But for Corzine, the rules are different. For Corzine, electronic transfers can’t be traced. Just because.

That’s why there’s no reason to praise any sort of surveillance tracking logs. Those logs are monitored and supervised by the same people whose perfidy they would supposedly be exposing. Heck, you can’t even get a court to look into ANY ASPECT of NSA surveillance, because “national security”. Suppose every use of NSA data was perfectly trackable today (might even be true, for all we know). So what? No one outside the NSA will ever see those data logs. Ever. Certainly not for any punitive or accountability purpose.

You need to think about how the whole system of power works. Merely adding tracking logs does nothing. You’d have to create a whole accountability system: surveillance logs instantly and securely transmitted to a secure facility operated by a non-partisan (not bi-partisan) inspector general agency, which is immune to NSA pressure and not corruptible and whose data can be subpoenaed in courts… etc.

The NSA probably does use Palantir’s software for their surveilance needs.
Does that mean that the NSA does “protect liberty and privacy in cyberspace”?

Of course it doesn’t. It would only do so if you trust the auditors. The NSA won’t allow the EFF to audit their systems so the EFF won’t trust the NSA.

The NSA head Clapper lies to congress. We know that he lies and that he isn’t trustworthy. The fact that he likely uses Palantir’s software doesn’t encourage us to trust him.

About the former I’m certain, but of both I’d say I have a high regard for their integrity.

Didn’t you say the same thing before Obama got elected and violated all his privacy related promises and now wages his war on the press?

We know it simply isn’t possible: if someone can get Palantir to play an audio recording of a phone call, then someone can record it with their phone and pass it around without Palantir knowing. Ditto video, ditto text.

(Which isn’t to say Palantir should be discouraged; making a serious attempt at tracking is better than nothing. But please don’t spread or support the idea that this information can be made secure. Once it is collected, it can and will be abused.)
