Stand with The Libertarian Institute

The Empire has us on the brink of nuclear Armageddon. The central bank has us flirting with economic-social collapse. Americans are increasingly paranoid of one another and simultaneously invested in wielding the state against one another.

The voices of the establishment are legion. The voices of dissent are few. Make your stand for liberty by supporting The Libertarian Institute today.

The Militarization Of The American Mind

by | Sep 4, 2019

It’s become obvious the government (mainly the security state) wants to completely take over social media (they probably have already).  Now ICE is going to use fake accounts to monitor the social media of foreigners seeking to enter the country.  Eventually, this program will expand, they always do.

Homeland Security explained the change to the AP in a statement Friday, stating that fake accounts would make it easier for agents reviewing visa, green card and citizenship applications to search for fraud or security threats. 

Even though this goes against Facebook and Twitter policy and Facebook has threatened to nuke their accounts, what do they care.  Who is Facebook going to complain too – their government representative in congress?

Senator calls for Mark Zuckerberg (and other Facebook executives) to face possible prison.

“Mark Zuckerberg has repeatedly lied to the American people about privacy. I think he ought to be held personally accountable, which is everything from financial fines to — and let me underline this — the possibility of a prison term.

Now, we read that the US Military also wants to control “fake news and disinformation” on the internet.

“Fake news and social media posts are such a threat to U.S. security that the Defense Department is launching a project to repel ‘large-scale, automated disinformation attacks’ … the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) wants custom software that can unearth fakes hidden among more than 500,000 stories, photos, video and audio clips. If successful, the system after four years of trials may expand to detect malicious intent and prevent viral fake news from polarizing society …”

They are watching us but why? They would have us believe it’s for our own security but they don’t want to just know what we are doing they want to know what we are thinking and how they can control and manipulate our thinking (without us knowing they are doing it).  George Carlin has part of the answer when he states:  They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they’re getting F****D.  But I think their is something else going on and that Andrew Bacevich is closer to the truth when he writes in his book The New American Militarism: How Americans Are Seduced By War.

It is a marriage of militarism and utopian ideology, of unprecedented military might wed to a blind faith in the universality of American values. This mindset, Bacevich warns, invites endless war and the ever-deepening militarization of U.S. policy. It promises not to perfect but to pervert American ideals and to accelerate the hollowing out of American democracy.

What better way to make this reality than to use the power of social media.
