I just read this:
A new CNN/Time … Poll indicates four in ten Americans say they are willing to give up some civil liberties to fight terrorism.
Only 38% favor expanding government monitoring of e-mail and cell phones.
While this is not a majority, they must not despair, because there are wishes that can become true even if you are in the minority. It’s like becoming vegetarian or quitting smoking. You don’t need to wait for Congress to enact a law. You can start adopting the desired policies in your own life right away.
To those citizens who have spoken out for more surveillance, I suggest taking the following steps:
- Put together a list of all your login details and passwords for your e-mail account, your Facebook account, your online banking, your Amazon account, your airline, hotel and other travel sites, your libraries, your online dating profiles, your university account, your Couchsurfing profile, your Dropbox, your newspaper and magazine subscriptions, your Twitter account and send that list to the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, your state police, county police, local police, campus police, ATF, Highway Patrol, DEA, Marshals Service, ICE, Secret Service, NSA and CTU.
- Write down your cell phone numbers with the appropriate PIN and send that list to the aforementioned agencies, asking them to feel free to check your voice mail. Do not delete messages once you have listened to them, as others might still find them useful.
- Let the aforementioned agencies know your WiFi connection and your password. If your WiFi is not strong enough for law enforcement to use it from the van outside of your house, prepare the extra bedroom for them and allow them to live with you.
- Install cameras in your bathroom, kitchen and bedroom and stream the images online, so that all agencies can have real-time access.
- Ask a police officer to accompany you all day, every day.
- When you send or receive mail or e-mails, forward copies of them to the aforementioned list of agencies.
- Never close the curtains.
- Don’t wear any clothes. After all, you “have nothing to hide”, right?
You will notice that you will feel so much safer. If all of this won’t be enough, ask to be taken into preventive custody.
