This site was started in response to the Snowden revelations that the
NSA is collecting massive amounts of information on the American
public. With an extensive background on the use of personal behavior data to
manipulate and control human behavior, the disclosure raised immediate
concerns about the purpose of such data collection.
This site presents information an
average person can use to see what is going on around them and
use that information to benefit themselves. The stories hopefully
provoke curiosity in topics presented and the links in them provide
information enabling readers to dig
deeper into topics of interest.
For the last 4 years a tsunami of
nonsense average Americans are bombarded with daily has diverted that
course. When you are busy dodging
debris in the flood its easy to lose sight of why you went to the shore
the first place. On the other hand, it has provided a tremendous
opportunity to see how propaganda and misinformation are
being used to damage you.
Free societies (a term used loosely since misinformation,
propaganda and lies can be as binding as chains)
can only work as long as the average person understands and takes
their obligation to guard their freedom by regularly checking that the
tasks they entrust and expect others to carry out on their behalf, are
being done in accordance to their expectations. When they are
not, it is each
person's responsibility to take action personally using whatever means
possible, to bring the delegated tasks back in line with their
expectations. That is the essence of maintaining freedom. Trust is absolutely not
The people that claim to be leaders are employed in service to the
public, every single person in it. Just like a plumber, a baker, a dockworker, no more than you ever.
The freedom and independence inherent in free
market capitalism make the rules easy to bend, although no one has to bend them for any reason other than to benefit themselves. All it takes
money and destabilizing the moral foundation of the people
responsible for protecting these rules, to permit their corruption
without raising protest or alarm. Clear thinking can drift
in times of stress and confusion. The times we live in makes that
happen. This site will flag what it sees and point it out.
One way is to continually oversell people on
what they need to live and persuade them to go deep into debt to get
whatever it is. Convincing consumers to reach beyond their grasp and
offering them easy credit to extend their reach will do it. People
burdened with debt for items with no value are easier to control.
Think about the money you owe and all of the ways it impacts your

The other problem is, the levels of expectation for trust and integrity
in all of our institutions are perilously low, again for completely sound reasons, and the idea that possessions speak to one's
success makes it easy to overlook the lies corruption depends on to
see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes
me to tremble for the safety of my country... corporations have been
enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the
money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by
working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is
aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed."

Why This Site Emphasizes America's Colonists and the
I grew up in a home in which my father beat our
mother up, punching her in the face, sometimes knocking her out, and
calling her filthy names, more often or not when he was drunk. It was
not constant, but enough that when
happened it terrified us as children. This situation made me wish
for a hero to come and save us. No hero ever came. You have to be the hero.
My first brush with heroes came when our family got a black
white television. Westerns and wrestling were the primary programs,
along with the
test pattern when the one station went off the air at night. The
westerns portrayed the average Americans of the wild west as
hard working, honest people who fought for what they believed in and
defended their neighbors. The hardworking cowboys portrayed by actors like John Wayne stood up to the bad guys and the townsfolk rallied to
their towns, ranches and mines from those that would be robbers,
exploiters and now today murder good Americans for money.
average Americans that built the west were the heroes. There was no "there has been no determination of liability" escape for cattle rustlers who were in possession of a rancher's stolen cattle, any more than there was no "statute of limitations"
for those that would rape or abuse their daughters because of their
position of power and proximity to governors. Little that has
happened since that time has improved the situation of the average
Their forefathers, the colonists, created a constitution
that enshrined their right to bear arms to defend themselves and the republic they
created against all forms of evil and
aggression, foreign and domestic, including corruption of their own
government. There are a still a huge number of
Americans today who
embody that character.
While it is true that a number of founders had slaves, over time
slavery was abolished. The Constitution is for all Americans, no matter
what color, if they choose to claim it as their own. The
constitution is not a whites only document.
One of the
Americans are different from everyone else is due to the fact that
unlike people from other countries, started out living under constant
threats of dying from those around them that were hostile to their
invasion and in many cases in the nation, hostile weather. They lived
under corrupt governance from Britain bent on taking their money and
subjecting them to the rule of the king and sniveling
merchants whining about their loss of riches. The colonists had to be
well armed and familiar with the use of guns and were willing to throw
yokes that would unfairly bind them after reasoned attempts at compromise. In other countries their people
lived under oppressive and deceitful rule for so long they are
virtual peons. The Chinese occupy a unique space in time right now in
that they are benefiting from a massive improvement of their
living conditions. Its like waking up in a slow moving Christmas where
every day there are new and fabulous things happening around
them. Eventually however, when the fear of oppressive rule rises
to be greater than the daily Christmas parade, they too will strain the
wraps that bind them, with one difference. The people are
not armed and although China has an amazing history of invention and
its leaders have proven to be more than adept at building China as a
nation, it will have to manage its relationship with its people when
the Christmas of wonderful things starts to fade and the obvious
corruption of its leaders can no longer be hidden. Propaganda and lies
do not feed, clothe, or improve the lives of those that in realty are
modern day peons
while the wealthy live in gated bubbles of vanity and deceit.
There is an effort
today to discredit the original intentions of the founders with regard
to arming citizens and mistrusting government, and those that try
constitution needs continual revision. However anyone who has had
to survive in life threatening situations would know being armed is in
absolute requirement to survival. There is no mistaking of that
intent during the creation of the nation. If the people of Hong Kong
were of the mind and as well armed as Americans it is highly likely the
situation would be different for its citizens, and China would have a
much harder time of imposing its rule on them.
For every nation whose citizens are not armed, and who are forced to
flee or bow to their leaders who can direct the police and military
against you to keep you in line, I point to the average American with
and grit as the enemies of your enemies. I am
not talking about the political class, or the deceitful and lying
press, or the military that behaves like an imperial invader, or
corporations that try to sell you things you do not need, like traders
that fleeced the Indians out of their furs, before the reality of
their worthlessness sets in and you realize you have traded the time of
your life for basically nothing.
country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from
time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? let
them take arms. the remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon
& pacify them. what signify a few lives lost in a century or two?

Extract from Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith Paris Nov. 13.
When you see someone who is willing to give up
everything and flee
their home, you are looking at a coward, and know the place they fled
as a den of vipers poisoned with corruption. That person will do
nothing to help America or any nation be what it was and should be.
The mere fact that they fled their home tells you all you need to know
about them and the county they left. To understand what this means,
think about what has to happen to you where you live to make you want
to flee to another country, leaving everything behind and risking the
lives of you and your children in the journey to do so.
With that in mind, if sufficiently steeped in your right to freedom,
and independence, ask yourself whether you would rather flee, or stand
your ground. Standing your ground is the essence of freedom, and if you
are unarmed in defending your rights and your family, you have all you
need to know about those countries and the people that are fleeing
They should be sent home to
fight for what is right, just as your forefathers did for
you, which included creating a constitution and the right to take
control of and
maintain a Republic providing freedom and rights to everyone.
There is no constitutional provision for America riding around the
world invading countries to establish democracies, which fails to work
most of the time anyhow while enriching arms makers and creates enemies
for America. The people of the nation have to do it for themselves, no one
else can do it for them.
of the political class willing to
drive you from your home, take away your livelihood and offer it up to
those who flee their homeland and divide it up among them, the very
your parents, grandparents and forefathers gave their lives for, are
simply liars and thieves.
This letter by Patrick Henry
to the 1775 Virginia Convention describes the guile of those trying to
deceive the colonists and lull them into complacency until they could
disarm them and defeat them militarily.
If that sounds familiar, that is because it is the same pattern that
repeats itself throughout history. It is necessary to resist all
naysayers who would exchange everyone's liberty out of cowardice or
The thieves can be of both political parties,
but I see more of it right now in those that call themselves liberal.
They are the ones that call the Constitution a living document, and the
second amendment about militias and hunting. Their reasons for
doing so are easy to
determine. They relate to votes, profit and their fear of real
waking up and refusing to put up with their nonsense, lies and
deception any longer. None of them can
the people that flee their homes are not like the colonists and willing
to take their
country back. Is it because they might die? How many lives
were lost creating America? Is that now not worth fighting for?
In spite of a spirit of great independence, many people are
afraid of conflict. Having lived in fear during my
childhood, I get
why people want to avoid it. I even read somewhere that when the colonists
voted to throw the British out, many were afraid to do
so, fearing it would lead to war. The
quote below recognizes
fear and yet raises the hope and understanding that there will always
be those willing to step into the breach where others fear to
tread. Unfortunately, there are always those in a nation who would exchange liberty for comfort, even to the point of turning against their own in a conflict.
man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is
more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature

exertions of better men than himself." - John
"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who
approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but
downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably
ruined." - (Patrick Henry, 3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836)
ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than
the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not

were our countrymen!” - Samuel Adams
Why This Site Focuses on Privacy and Spying
started a part time job at a marina when I was 12, and several years
later had to go door to door calling on people to sell personal
development programs. My
father owned a
business providing training courses
by Success Motivation Institute to insurance companies, and my mother
ran a self help bookstore to provide books, records and tapes to their
customers. The training programs and books I read got me interested in
During that time my father also became involved with a group of
investors that started a life insurance
company selling whole life and term insurance policies to customers.
The actuaries they worked with explained how they could use peoples'
personal data to design insurance policies that would not be be paid
out unexpectedly. What to the untrained eye looked like gambling
was actually mathematical and scientific analysis of personal behavior
used to gain understanding of what people's lives would be like in the
short term and long term. Having that information allowed
actuaries to design policies that would be profitable to sell.
When I was training life insurance people it was difficult to get
agents to quickly develop habits that would make them successful, and I
wanted to know how to make habit change faster, easier and permanent.
It was obvious the military knew how to change people's behavior
quickly and so I asked close relative who knew J. Edgard Hoover if he
could get Hoover to send me some materials that explained how it all
worked, which he did.
Basically, your personal data is used to control and manipulate
you, along with new technologies you never hear about. You will not know that it is happening and it can be used to make
you do things that are not good for you, your future, or the future of
your children. In free states you are lied to and the liars invent
take your data. In socialist/communist states, even though they
can simply use force and fear to get you to capitulate, your
data is to manipulate you into subservience.
The military operates much like a communist state. To get
shooting in the same direction they have to create a never ending
stream of propaganda to sell the purpose of the mission and create
enemies where there are none. If the regulars realize the entire
story is a lie, which
clearly proved to be a problem in
Vietnam, the structure breaks down. Someone giving years of their
life to a scheme will be reluctant to admit they were fooled.

That includes a god, a parent, a teacher, professor, a

Moreover, accepting the idea that a god is going to show up and take
care of things while you do nothing is nonsense and merely a
retreat into fantasy that will destroy your life and that of your

Free Markets and Capitalism
Free markets and capitalism work. People who game and
corrupt them are the real problem in free markets. Most people do not
how to work for themselves and profit in these systems.
Governments cannot run businesses and dictate innovation. The
other problem is that there are no ethics. In a model in which
its everyone for themselves, it is a challenge to operate with
integrity and fairness. Especially when the laws and the courts protect corruption.
China's experiment with market ideas works because its people can create businesses and profit individually
from their labors, with the Chinese government playing a support role
in many cases. Every situation offers a lesson, and China's is no
different. Trump gave tax breaks to corporations and in so doing
confounded expert opinion that the economy was mired in low
yields. Jobs boomed and employment rose. I am not a fan of
large business and getting a job with them, and economic policy is
something frankly I know nothing about, but allowing corporations to
trip over themselves to make a buck shows how they work, and that is a
good thing. It exposes them.
This link on Sweden
(56 minutes) talks about how Sweden makes their economy and social
safety net work. However Sweden's model is not without controversy. What is interesting is that Sweden came to the
realization that capital can flee restrictive markets and damage the
country, so they created a hybrid acknowledging how to make both
work. The solution would be to bomb every tax haven out of
existence, but that is too radical and trying would make the resistance
to Trump look like a Sunday school picnic, so you have to figure out
other ways to do it. Having people who have no idea how to work
for themselves is not a great starting point though.
One of the founders of this publication is a Jewish lawyer.
He and I spoke at length about the Jewish Kibbutz and cooperatives
model. In particular, I was curious about the success of Jewish
experiments with these models. His take on it was
interesting. He said from his experience with them that the Kibbutz and cooperatives were
being pushed to adopt in many cases a more individualistic approach to
reward participation in them, and that some were forced to expand
into business to survive financially.
I bring this up in the interim only to point out that there are
opportunities all over the world to learn new ways of doing things, but
you have to think for yourself and be willing to try things out.
I am not a fan of having anyone such as a god, a parent, a
teacher, professor, a
politician, a religion, or a dictator, a government, a political party
or anyone claiming any expertise at all that they know better than you
how to live your life, and that by trusting them they will take care of
all of your problems.
You simply have to learn how to make new versions of the market and some
form of capitalism work for you and everyone else. In fact I
think that people trying to maintain the status quo cannot be trusted
at all. So if you get anything from this publication, please feel
free to conclude that I am trying to convince you to learn how to think
for yourself, respect nothing, and try everything.
Governments can regulate business with a light touch, but regulation
should not be an entrepreneurial activity allowing the creation of more
overcompensated and self entitled bureaucrats. More to come.
There are some
highly intelligent people suggesting that the road to the future should
be with more government control and operation of the the means of
production and employment. Socialistic systems as it were.
I have no disagreement with the need to improve the way things operate,
but I would point out that few government run entities have ever
produced a Steve Jobs (Jobs stuck a Mac inside a tiny slab that became the hand held phone), Thomas Edison, Elon Musk, Henry Ford, Nikola
Tesla (1.25 hour video), or the thousands of other innovators that have produced some of
the worlds' fantastic inventions. Every country in the world has had
their share of noted inventors, but most come from invention
in the private sectors. The only experience I have to counter that supposition is in places I was personally involved,
one is Xerox
PARC and the other was AT&T Bell Labs. At PARC I saw and used
the world's first mouse and WYSIWYG computer interface, long before
acquired a license for them, and TV and video on phones at
AT&T Bell Labs. So while many
things are made in labs, essentially an institutional setting, the madness of
getting the invention to everyone in the world is
driven by zealots.
Somewhere along the way the desire to crush
competitors overrides the need for encouraging your own death to grow
the world. When the understanding that the greatest power comes
from benefiting the most people is lost, the power of inspired
being is lost along with it and the love of wealth becomes another
Religions suggest that the devil was simply an angel that had fallen to
earth, which is the same basic idea.
Part of the problem
globally is people clinging to their mommies for support and
protection. When mommy is gone they cling to their religions, or
their corporate and government mommies. Until
we learn to grow up and realize we are put on this earth to grow from
where we started as individuals while working together with others, we
will continue to be abused and manipulated like
the children we allow ourselves to be.
For Immigrants Only: Observe How Nations Are Destroyed by Corrupt Leaders And The Wealthy
If you are one of the
unfortunate people forced out of your home and homeland and have had to
make a perilous journey to leave it, start studying the behavior of certain
powerful people in government in America and their treatment of plain
folks to get some idea of the type of governance the United States, corrupt corporations, the wealthy and
a completely corrupt media are moving America to and you will understand what happened to the country you fled. Many of these
people have repeatedly voted to destroy the jobs and future of average
people so that
their corporate donors can reduce wages to as little as possible make a
profit. Those in power are willing to do it to people whose
families have been here for generations, so to them you are simply
suckers in a play to continually reduce the earnings of average
citizens so they are easier to control. I am sure many of you
understand what that is like.
They are also the same people that would take away the American
people's right to be armed, which the founders of America intended its
citizens should have not only to defend themselves from people who
rob them, kill them, and rape and murder their children, like those of
you coming from Mexico among other nations with a serious problem with
cartels, and the police and governments the cartels have paid
off. America's founders also intended
that its citizens have the right to remove the government by force if
necessary if it becomes so corrupt that it no longer represents the
people, which happened with cartel infiltration of the police and
courts in your country, and the government in places like Cuba and
China. You may not have been able to take back your own country
right now, but you should make sure that anyone you know understands
why the original design of America's constitution and the people that
defend it are more important than those that would undermine the nation
to get elected and tell you how to live while making sure you can do
nothing about it if you don't like what they do. If you can vote
you need to make sure people who support America's constitution and
will fight corruption in America's top policing agencies as well as
American companies who would cheat citizens of their jobs and decent
pay to make a profit are elected. You may not like a lot of what goes on around
you, but it would be far better to be surrounded by people who can
fight for the nation you are in than people who would stand by and do
nothing about it. Best regards.
