White House proposal would ease FBI access to records of Internet activity

By Ellen Nakashima
Washington Post Staff Writer
Thursday, July 29, 2010

The Obama administration is seeking to make it easier for the FBI to compel companies to turn over records of an individual's Internet activity without a court order if agents deem the information relevant to a terrorism or intelligence investigation.

The administration wants to add just four words -- "electronic communication transactional records" -- to a list of items that the law says the FBI may demand without a judge's approval. Government lawyers say this category of information includes the addresses to which an Internet user sends e-mail; the times and dates e-mail was sent and received; and possibly a user's browser history. It does not include, the lawyers hasten to point out, the "content" of e-mail or other Internet communication.

But what officials portray as a technical clarification designed to remedy a legal ambiguity strikes industry lawyers and privacy advocates as an expansion of the power the government wields through so-called national security letters. These missives, which can be issued by an FBI field office on its own authority, require the recipient to provide the requested information and to keep the request secret. They are the mechanism the government would use to obtain the electronic records.

Great title. :P

Point well taken, though.

What would they do if we just started mailing them images of our mudra chakras before they even ask for them?

NEOCONS!

THIS IS A WAKE UP CALL!

ALL THOSE FIGHTING THE GHOST TERRORISTS, YOU NEED TO READ THIS ASAP!

THE SYSTEMS BEING PUT IN PLACE ARE NOT TO CATCH TERRORISTS AS YOU MIGHT HAVE GUESSED.

YOU DO NOT NEED 1 MILLION PEOPLE WITH TOP SECRET CLEARANCE AND 100 MILLION VIDEO CAMERAS WITH CENTRAL CONTROL TO CATCH 100 AL QAEDA!

THIS SYSTEM IS BUILT FOR THE NEW AGE SOCIAL CONTROL ARCHITECTS TO MONITOR ALL OF YOUR ACTIVITIES. IF THEY DECIDE YOU CANNOT SMOKE...SMOKING BECOMES THE DEMON SEARCH IN YOUR SEARCH HISTORY WARRANTING A FULL INVESTIGATION. IF GUNS ARE DECLARED "ANTI-SOCIAL" THAN ANY GUN SEARCHES WILL WARRANT A FULL INVESTIGATION.

CAN YOU SEE WHERE THIS IS GOING?

YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW INSANE THEIR PLANS ARE...

Holistic Darwinism: synergy, cybernetics, and the bioeconomics of evolution (2005)



Synergy, Cybernetics, and the Evolution of Politics

http://books.google.com/books?id=NDeW4UNRmkwC&pg=PA149&dq=eco+cybernetics&hl=en&ei=nEFDTODOHtKP4wbg9MB2&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=3&ved=0CCsQ6AEwAjgU#v=snippet&q=We%20begin%20with%20the%20problem%20of%20defining%20politics&f=false

Constitution is whatever we say it is
Quote
We begin with the  problem of defining politics. Charles Evans Hughes, a distinguished Chief Justice of the United States, was indiscreet enough in his pre-Supreme Court days to remark that "the Constitution is what the judges say it is" (My note: And you found out that was the case when they passed all those eugenics laws back in the early 1920s - you couldn't do jack squat about it or fall back on any of the Constitutional amendments to protect yourself from the wrath of the eugenicists) In like manner, or so it seems, politics is whatever political scientists and political anthropologists say it is.

The treaty I advocate defines politics as isomorphic with social cybernetics: A political system is the cybernetic aspect, or "subsystem", of any socially organized group or population. Politics in these terms refers to social processes that involve efforts to create, or to acquire control over, a cybernetic subsystem, as well as the process of exercising control.

This definition is not original. The term cybernetics can be traced to the Greek word kybernetes, meaning steersman or helmsman (My note: That's what the 'VR helmets' were about), and it is also the root of such English words as "governor" and "government". In the nineteenth century, the French scientist Andre Ampere took to using the term 'cybernetics' as an equivalent for politics. More recently, the term has been employed by political scientists Karl Deutsch (1963), David Easton (1965), and John Steinbruner (1974), among others.


Dehumanizing politics through cybernetics - turn it into a self-regulated, controlled feedback loop

http://books.google.com/books?id=NDeW4UNRmkwC&pg=PA149&dq=eco+cybernetics&hl=en&ei=nEFDTODOHtKP4wbg9MB2&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=3&ved=0CCsQ6AEwAjgU#v=onepage&q=What%20is%20the%20justification%20for%20dehumanizing%20politics&f=false

Quote
What is the justification for dehumanizing politics and converting the multifarious real-world processes into an abstract model? One advantage is that it reduces the many disparate cases to an underlying set of generic properties that transcend any particular institutional arrangements, not to mention the motivations and perceptions of the actors involved (My note: What they're really saying here is - we're taking the human element out of politics. That's what they are trying really hard not to give away here). The cybernetic definition is also functionally oriented. It is focused on the process of goal setting, decision making, communications, and control (including the all-important concept of feedback), which are in fact indispensable requisites for all purposeful social organizations. Indeed, cybernetic regulatory processes exist in families, football teams, business firms, and at all levels of government.

In this paradigm, the struggle for power - or dominance competition in the argot of ethology - is relevant and may even affect the Darwinian fitness of the participants, but this aspect is subsidiary to the role of politics qua cybernetics in the operation of any social system. Equally important, power struggles are a subsidiary aspect of the explanation for why such systems evolve in the first place. Social goals (goals that require two or more actors) and anticipated or realized outcomes are the primary drivers.


Politics brought in line with all other cybernetic models - including those cybernetic regulatory processes 'governing' the bacterial colony to the anthill society

Quote
Another advantage of this definition is that it enables us to view human politics as one variant among an array of fuctionally analogous (and sometimes even homologous) cybernetic regulatory processes which are found in all other socially organized species - from bacterial colonies to army ants to wolf packs - and in all known human societies, including, by inference, our group-living, protohominid ancestors of more than five million years ago. Though there are great differences among these species, and among societies, in how political/cybernetic processes are organized and maintained, both the similarities and the differences are illuminating. This is illustrated in figure 4, a pointed variation on Powers's model in chapter 4 that is intended to model a modern government.

Thus, a cybernetics definition of politics is grounded in a biological - and functional - perspective and is related, ultimately, to the biological problem of survival and reproduction in, and for, organized societies. Politics in these terms can be viewed as an evolved biological phenomenon that has played a significant functional role in the evolutionary process; political evolution has been inextricably linked to the synergies that have inspired the progressive evolution of complex social systems. (My note: In other words - the 'remoulding' of entire swathes of people and how they are governed and compartmentalized and packed together and given 'job descriptions' and specific tasks/roles in society)




(My note: See - this is what 'IT Governance' is about - this is why the Viable Systems Model influenced and helped shape Enterprise Architecture - Viable Systems Model being developed by British cyberneticist Stafford Beer - he was going to use it for Project Cybersyn, a computer network command and control system that would have run the entire economy in a top-down planned fashion.

Listen to Alan Watt's most recent audiotalk where he talks about 'stakeholders' and the legal definition behind it - we in IT engineering/software development currently have to use UML diagrams/processes where every involved party is a STAKEHOLDER. They are also giving 'IT governance' and 'global governance' lectures at these IT schools now - they are becoming the government - government as we know it today - if it isn't already a total circus - will become even more so - it will be no more relevant than America's Idols or America's Next Top Model - really.
)

Biopolitics-cum-cybernetics paradigm - the European Union is an EXAMPLE of a cybernetic form of government

Quote
Within this biopolitics-cum-cybernetics paradigm, political evolution refers to the invention, and perhaps diffusion, of novel cybernetic mechanisms, processes, and systems. Many of these are directly or indirectly related to the survival, and thus to Darwinian fitness, of the members of a social group, but in modern human societies many others obviously are not. Some of these cybernetic innovations may lead to greater complexity in an existing system or the emergence of a new level of cybernetic control (the Port Authority of New York and the European Union are two examples during the past century), but this need not always be so. In fact, some innovations involve an analogue of adaptive simplification in biological evolution. The substitution of a regulated market for a bureaucratic command system might be an example (My note: Mymy - wasn't that EXACTLY what Project Cybersyn was - a command and control approach to running the economy? The 'System of Systems' alluded to by Arthur Jensen in the movie Network (remember - with the lead character Howard Beale 'I'm mad as hell and I can't take it anymore!'))

Politics is 'dominance competition'

http://books.google.com/books?id=NDeW4UNRmkwC&pg=PA149&dq=eco+cybernetics&hl=en&ei=nEFDTODOHtKP4wbg9MB2&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=3&ved=0CCsQ6AEwAjgU#v=snippet&q=power%20is%20not%20a%20means%3B%20it%20is%20an%20end&f=false

Quote
"Nepotistic "kin selection", he argues, was the "primary force" responsible for establishing societies and politics."

Quote
What Tiger and Fox did, and with a certain relish, was to equate politics in human societies with dominance competition in the natural world. Thus politics is "a world of winners and losers". The political system, they claimed, is synonymous with a "dominance hierarchy". At first glance, it may seem that TIger and Fox were promoting the Machiavellian vision (seconded by such modern-day theorists as Hans Morgenthau) that politics is essentially a struggle for power. As the character O'Brien famously put it in novelist George Orwell's masterppiece, 1984, "power is not a means; it is an end... The object of power is power"

Quote
A number of other theorists have adopted a game theory (My note: Which is an auxiliary science of cybernetics) approach to political evolution. The pioneer in this area was biologist John Maynard Smith (1982b), who was the first to apply classical game theory models to the problem of explaining social evolution."

Fundamental paradigm shift in politics - 'political evolution'

http://books.google.com/books?id=NDeW4UNRmkwC&pg=PA149&dq=eco+cybernetics&hl=en&ei=nEFDTODOHtKP4wbg9MB2&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=3&ved=0CCsQ6AEwAjgU#v=snippet&q=One%20indication%20of%20a%20sea%20change&f=false
a
Quote
One indication of a sea change in the discipline is a growing interest in the concept of "political evolution". This seemingly innocuous linguistic shift is not merely a fad or a borrowed metaphor, but the reflection of a fundamental paradigm shift. It represents a reconceptualization of macrolevel political change. In this nascent new paradigm - political development can be viewed as analogous to political "engineering" - that is, the construction of a viable political process or structure more or less from preexisting plans. ("Nation-building" is the much-used - and abused - current buzzword for this process). (My note: See people - when they use these 'terms' such as 'nation building' - the public does not have an idea in hell what they are talking about. They are talking here explicitly about 'engineering' politics - and creating 'structures' from PRE-EXISTING PLANS - ie. it is pre-ordained. This is why you have a puppet government in the 'nation-building' exercise that is Iraq.)

Book channels The Report From Iron Mountain and 1984 - society is held together by war

http://books.google.com/books?id=NDeW4UNRmkwC&pg=PA149&dq=eco+cybernetics&hl=en&ei=nEFDTODOHtKP4wbg9MB2&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=3&ved=0CCsQ6AEwAjgU#v=snippet&q=As%20noted%20earlier%2C%20the%20well-known%20biologist&f=false

Quote
As noted earlier, the well-known biologist Richard Alexander (1979) took perhaps the strongest position on this issue. In his so-called 'balance of power' scenario (My note: BTW - there was a 'videogame' released with that exact name - product placement/familiarization of terms again), the process of cultural evolution is seen as being driven by competition between human groups, which in turn is an expression of inclusive fitness maximizing behavior. In other words, warfare is a form of reproductive competition by other means. Whereas various economic hypotheses are neither necessary nor sufficient explanations for large-scale societies, Alexander argued, warfare IS both necessary and sufficient.

Quote
As pointed out in chapter 6, it is obvious that organized warfare has been a major source of synergy in human societies. The evidence is overwhelming that warfare has played a significant role in shaping the course of recorded human history. For instance, a major study of this issue some years ago examined twenty-one cases of state development, ranging in time from 3000 BC to the nineteenth century AD. It was found that coercive force was a factor in every case and that outright conquest was involved in about half of them (Corning 2001) (My note: This is why you have institutes like the RAND Corporation creating these reports calling for 'total war'. The jig is up, you sick scumbags - we know now that what was contained within The Report From Iron Mountain was not sarcasm or a fiction)

Quote
Moreover, as populations grew larger, warfare with other groups came to predominate over other forms of cooperation. Warfare, Alexander claims, is both the necessary and sufficient cause of large-scale human societies. An elaboration of this thesis can be found in Thayer (2004). For broad reviews of the literature on warfare, see Corning (2001a), von der Dennen (1991, 1995), and Corning and van der Dennen (2005). Also, see below and chapter 8.

Quote
"There are also various coercive theories of political evolution. The so-called "warfare hypothesis" is a perennial favorite, dating back at least to Thucydides's great treatise, History of the Pelopennesian War (1962). Another classic on this subject is Von Clausewitz's On War (1968). Darwin, Herbert Spencer (My note: Both eugenicists and personal acquaintances of the founder of eugenics, Francis Galton - this is also why Darwin wrote in one of his letters that he loved nothing more than to see the Turks being slaughtered by superior and more racially pure races, and that this constituted 'natural selection' apparently - totally sick, totally nonsensical, but then again these are freaks we are talking about), and an assortment of nineteenth and early twentieth century social Darwinist writers (My note: Social Darwinism = Eugenics) also singled out the role of warfare in human evolution."

Watch this trailer that ties directly into cybernetics/the musings on war quoted above - it is a more important cultural artefact than George Orwell's 1984 - because it ties everything together that I've been talking about - and I mean EVERYTHING

"War has changed. It's not about nations, or ideologies. It's not even about profit, resources, or ethnicity.

It's an endless series of proxy battles, fought by mercenaries and machines.

War - and its vast consumption of human life - has become a rational, well-oiled business transaction.

War has changed.

ID-tagged soldiers carry ID-tagged weapons, use ID-tagged gear. Nanomachines inside their bodies enhance and regulate their actions.

Genetic control.. Information control. Emotion control. Battlefield control. Everything is monitored and kept under control.

War has changed.

The age of deterrence has become the age of control...All in the name of averting catastrophe from weapons of mass destruction.

And he who controls the battlefield...controls history.

War has changed.

When the battlefield is under total control...War becomes routine."

That book sounds like the typical filth I used to have to read when I was a doctoral candidate.

How horrible.

What mean tiny little minds.

Yes, intellectuals have been toying with cybernetic models for society and the mind for some time -- and transhumanis/posthumanism, too.

Blow the covers on the sickness of their immature little game, though, and you're out of the club.

Everybody's "truth" is equal these days.  Even the "truths" of the mediocre "Gradgrinds" that run higher education.

One thing is for sure, not all "truths" are born equal, and these reductionistic wool-gathering operations probably don't nearly merit the appelation in any sense of the word.

Now I remember why I got out.

"(1) In an industrial society the mode of production shifts from agriculture to industry, with the use of human and animal muscle supplanted by machine operation. In the technetronic society industrial employment yields to services, with automation and cybernetics replacing the operation of machines by individuals."
_______________________________________________
"The national community is the obvious one to turn to, and a definition of what a national community is may well become more restrictive as broader transnational cooperation develops. For many peoples the nationstate was a compromise dictated by economics, by security, and by other factors. An optimum balance was eventually struck, often after centuries of conflict. Today the balance is becoming unsettled, because newer and larger frameworks of cooperation are emerging, and the effective integration of much smaller, more cohesive units into much larger wholes is becoming increasingly possible because of computers, cybernetics, communications, and so on."
_______________________________________________
"Solid work has been done by Soviet scholars, primarily in the area of technologicaleconomic forecasting. For example, in 1964 the Soviet philosophical journal, Voprosy Filosofii, began publishing a series of articles on the theme of "The ScientificTechnical Revolution and Its Social Consequences." On the whole, these articles have been serious and frequently very informative treatments of such subjects as the methodology of forecasting, the organizational problems of science in the context of the scientific explosion, the role of cybernetics, comparative analyses of scientific development and projections for the United States and the Soviet Union, to say nothing of more specifically Sovietoriented economic and technological prognoses." 23
_______________________________________________
"Technological adaptation would involve the transformation of the bureaucraticdogmatic party into a party of technocrats. Primary emphasis would be on scientific expertise, efficiency, and discipline. As has already happened in Ulbricht's East Germany, the party would be composed of scientific experts, trained in the latest techniques, capable of relying on cybernetics and computers for social control, and looking to scientific innovation for the preservation of Soviet security and industrial growth.  Nationalism would replace ideological dogmas as the basic integrative principle linking society and the state. The younger, more technologically oriented leaders of the military establishment would, in all probability, favour this pattern. Political leadership, as in the first variant, could remain collective, though it would probably involve a wider coalition of partystate militaryeconomic leaders."
_______________________________________________
"The example of Ulbricht's East Germany may become particularly relevant. Though in Rumania explorations of the scientific revolution's significance have led some communists to suggest that this revolution requires a new theoretical framework based on the principle of universality, 34 Ulbricht has attempted to combine scientific innovation with strict adherence to the LeninistStalinist ideological tradition. Political leadership has remained highly centralized, and ideological dissent has been firmly suppressed. At the same time, Ulbricht, perhaps more than any other communist leader, has emphasized that "the development of the socialist system, above all the implementation of the economic system as a whole, is to a growing extent a matter of scientific leadership. . . . We orient ourselves on the conscious scientific control of complex processes and systems by the people and for the people. We make use of cybernetics in this sense." 35

During the second half of the 1960s, East German leadership made an intense effort to rationalize economic management in order to combine lowerlevel initiative with an effective system of controls and coordination. The Seventh Party Congress (April 1967) set itself the task of developing a general conception of the relations between the various partsystems with the economic system as a whole;more than any other communist country, East Germany utilized cybernetics, operational research, and electronic data processing.  Two years later, at the April 1969 Central Committee Plenum, Politburo member Kurt Hager proudly reported—and he repeatedly used this formula—that East Germany was not only ideologically sound but "correctly programmed."

In line with this "correct programming," the party has emphasized the importance of expertise among its members, 36 and the educational system has been reformed in order to link science closely with industry. † By the late 1960s, East Germany had transformed itself from one of the most warravaged societies into the most economically and ideologically advanced scienceoriented communist state. After a fiftyyear lapse, the combination of Prussian discipline, German scientific efficiency, and LeninistStalinist ideology has thus again made German communism a model for its eastern neighbors.

In the Soviet Union, however, other considerations will in all likelihood impede the pace of a similar "technologization" of the Soviet political system. For one thing, the Soviet Union is a much bigger country, is more difficult to integrate, and has many more areas of socioeconomic backwardness to overcome. In addition, over the last fifty years the ruling party has developed its own traditions and ideological style, and though it favors the acquisition of technical skills by its officials, it is likely to continue to resist the development of an essentially technical orientation among its members, since that would dilute the importance attached to ideology. 37 Moreover, perhaps intensified in the years to come by the SinoSoviet dispute, the role of the security factor in policymaking and of the military in the political process might tend to increase."

Polish-born Brzezinski has something of the pride of an adopted son in such achievements, though he recognizes that in some ways the U.S. is its own worst enemy. For the technetronic revolution it exports causes profound disturbances in the less developed nations. Suddenly aware of material progress, they conspicuously and maddeningly lack the means to achieve it. Their acute frustration causes not a revolution in rising expectations, says Brzezinski, but a "specter of insatiable aspirations."

Just as the technetronic revolution has further divided rich from poor nations, so is it beginning to fracture the nation-state. But the result of the breakup is not likely to lead to One World. Brzezinski amends Marshall Mc-Luhan's thesis that the world is shrinking into a "global village." A village implies shared tradition and intimacy. Today's technetronic world resembles rather a "global city—a nervous, agitated, tense, and fragmented web of interdependent relations." To recover some sense of identity, people are desperately turning back to their origins in race or region.

Flood of Technocrats. The New American Revolution, according to Brzezinski, is also fragmenting the mind of man. More than ever before, society is rigidly divided between those who think and those who feel. On the one side are the quiet, methodical technocrats who run the new machines pretty much without questioning their aims.On the other are the emotionalists, who have rebelled against the dehumanization of computer society.

Brzezinski harbors a good deal of contempt for what he calls the "new class" of alienated students and those intellectuals of the "Violent Left" who feel superfluous to society and for that reason want to bring the whole thing down. Paradoxically, he fears fellow technocrats even more than the New Left. Goaded mercilessly from the left, often deficient in traditional humanitarian values, a New Right of technocrats might eventually seize power. Unlike the left, they would know how to use it. To forestall such a disaster, Brzezinski strives for a formula that will fuse together the divided halves of the American soul. Lacking confidence in liberalism—partly because it lacks confidence in itself—Brzezinski proposes a kind of participatory democracy in which government, private business and the academic world join hands to solve the nation's social problems.



if we can help expose, as smedley butler did, that war is a racket to expose the unconstitutional psychopathic masters of war who continue to use our (and everyone else's) brave soldiers for geopolitical chessgames rather than to defend "we the people" from threats to the constitution foreign and domestic: http://www.masters-of-war.org/mowvideo2007.html

According to former Secretary of State, Sir Henry Kissinger:

Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.

“This is my old, private blog that is now sadly neglected since I have launched Oath Keepers, which has truly taken off like a rocket, leaving me no time for personal blogging – not that I’m complaining. the Oath Keepers mission is very important, and worth the time and effort.



Go here: http://oathkeepers.org/oath/

However, if you want to see what prompted me to finally launch Oath Keepers, there are several posts on this blog that show my thinking.

Back in 2006 I wrote several scathing criticisms of the Bush Administration’s absurd and dangerous claims of nearly unlimited executive “war” powers. Those articles built on my research at Yale Law School (where I won the Miller Prize for best paper on the Bill of Rights).

One of the most common refrains I get from Obama supporters is “where were you when Bush was violating the Constitution.” Well, I was right here. Read this:”
http://stewart-rhodes.blogspot.com/

OATH KEEPERS is a non-partisan association of Military, Veterans, and peace officers who will honor their oaths to defend the Constitution, will NOT just follow orders, will stand for liberty, and will save the Republic, so help us God. Our motto is:

“Not on Our Watch!”

SUMMARY LIST OF ORDERS WE WILL NOT OBEY:

1. We will NOT obey orders to disarm the American people.

2. We will NOT obey orders to conduct warrantless searches of the American people

3. We will NOT obey orders to detain American citizens as unlawful enemy combatants or to subject them to military tribunal.

4. We will NOT obey orders to impose martial law or a state of emergency on a state.

5. We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty.

6. We will NOT obey any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps.

7. We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext.

8. We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to keep the peace or to maintain control.

9. We will NOT obey any orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies.

10.We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.

Yup, they need more illegal power to circumvent the constitution since they might not know how to run a constitutional investigation...



Hundreds of FBI agents probed over cheating on surveillance test

FBI Director Robert Mueller told Congress on Wednesday that he does not know how many of his agents cheated on an important exam on the bureau's policies, an embarrassing revelation that raises questions about whether the FBI knows its own rules for conducting surveillance on Americans. The Justice Department inspector general is investigating whether hundreds of agents cheated on the test. Some took the open-book test together, violating rules that they take it alone. Others finished the lengthy exam unusually quickly, current and former officials said.

The test was supposed to ensure that FBI agents understand new rules allowing them to conduct surveillance and open files on Americans without evidence of criminal wrongdoing. If agents can't pass that test without cheating, civil liberties groups ask, how can they follow them? Asked about an Associated Press report about the cheating investigation, Mueller said he does not know how widespread the problem was.

That book sounds like the typical filth I used to have to read when I was a doctoral candidate.

How horrible.

What mean tiny little minds.

Yes, intellectuals have been toying with cybernetic models for society and the mind for some time -- and transhumanis/posthumanism, too.

Blow the covers on the sickness of their immature little game, though, and you're out of the club.

Everybody's "truth" is equal these days.  Even the "truths" of the mediocre "Gradgrinds" that run higher education.

One thing is for sure, not all "truths" are born equal, and these reductionistic wool-gathering operations probably don't nearly merit the appelation in any sense of the word.

Now I remember why I got out.

Nicely put. What is disappointing though is how academia, and the economics field in particular has completely abrogated any sense of responsibility for inquiry and critique into our existing currency/banking system.

The current central banking model is simply taken as axiomatic. In a sense the academicians of economics have become mere technicians, propagating a fixed view, and the various models of how to operate the system. These "academics", and the term must be used very loosely, are then churned out to operate the system, very much like mechanics; where is the academic, questioning mind to be found in economics today?

Amen.

If there was ever an industry in need of decentralization and true competition, it is the banking industry.

Audit the fed.

(If we do that, the next logical step will be to end it anyway.)

Obama "letter" increases FBI power to get your data "faster and easier"

White House proposal would ease FBI access to records of Internet activity
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/07/28/AR2010072806141.html?wpisrc=nl_tech

The Obama administration is seeking to make it easier
for the FBI to compel companies to turn over records
of an individual's Internet activity without a court order
if agents deem the information relevant to a
terrorism or intelligence investigation.


The administration wants to add just four words -- "electronic communication transactional records" -- to a list of items that the law says the FBI may demand without a judge's approval. Government lawyers say this category of information includes the addresses to which an Internet user sends e-mail; the times and dates e-mail was sent and received; and possibly a user's browser history. It does not include, the lawyers hasten to point out, the "content" of e-mail or other Internet communication.

But what officials portray as a technical clarification designed to remedy a legal ambiguity strikes industry lawyers and privacy advocates as an expansion of the power the government wields through so-called national security letters. These missives, which can be issued by an FBI field office on its own authority, require the recipient to provide the requested information and to keep the request secret. They are the mechanism the government would use to obtain the electronic records.

...

To critics, the move is another example of an administration retreating from campaign pledges to enhance civil liberties in relation to national security. The proposal is "incredibly bold, given the amount of electronic data the government is already getting," said Michelle Richardson, American Civil Liberties Union legislative counsel.

US Seeks Access to More Internet Data Without Court Order

The Washington Post reports that the Obama administration is seeking to make it easier for the FBI to obtain internet records of users without a court order. If Congress approves the plan, the FBI would be able to secretly issue a National Security Letter to an internet provider and obtain who users send email to, the times and dates of e-mails sent and received, and possibly a log of every website visited. Kevin Bankston of the Electronic Frontier Foundation said, "Our biggest concern is that an expanded [National Security Letter] power might be used to obtain Internet search queries and Web histories detailing every Web site visited and every file downloaded."
