Google vs. DOJ/NSA

Google warned in its statement that if the DoJ gets its way, the FBI will be authorized to hack into servers regardless of their geopolitical location, thus giving the US government unrestrained access to endless amounts of personal data around the globe.

As Google explains it, such covert invasions of privacy, “may take place anywhere in the world. This concern is not theoretical. … [T]he nature of today’s technology is such that warrants issued under the proposed amendment will in many cases end up authorizing the government to conduct searches outside the United States.”

The issue is raising serious concerns for civil watchdog groups, like the American Civil Liberties Union, who fear the government – not only refusing to retreat in the aftermath of the 2013 Snowden revelations, which exposed the tentacles of the National Security Agency wrapped around a large swath of the planet – but is actually moving recklessly ahead with even more obtrusive methods.

Welcome to New York by Abel Ferrara, which had a private screening on the sidelines of the Cannes film festival at the weekend and has been on pay-per-view in France, is billed as a piece of fiction and comes with a legal disclaimer.

However, I’d also hope that their approval doesn’t come with conditions. That seems to be what’s holding up a lot of these projects; although some have clearly moved ahead without having that approval. But I say, if you’re giving me your blessing, then allow me to tell your entire story, not just what you want me to show…

Should be out on newsstands right now.

Be sure to pick up this month’s High Times for my in-depth interview with Olympic gold medal winning snowboarder Ross Rebagliati.  Ross became the most famous guy in North America when the Olympic committee stripped his medal away in the 1998 Winter Games.  That’s a hell of a story.  Now Ross is back and opening up medical marijuana cafés in Canada.

The Internet was created by DARPA as a way for communications to survive a nuclear war.  When servers go down, packets are automatically rerouted to a different server, no matter how long the route takes, in order to finally reach the recipient.  This was by military necessity.  The packet transfer scheme tags the sender with IP address information, something that is hard to get around, and makes for tracking and surveillance to be that much easier.  Proxy servers and TOR encryption attempt to anonymize the traffic, but users are still at the mercy of those involved in those schemes.  If they are compromised, then the supposed encryption security is also compromised.

This film attempts to tackle the rest of the internet, the search engines and social networks that store and exploit personal data voluntarily given to it.  Here is where our lives are open books to the data miners from private corporations as well as intelligence services.  I’ve had a queasy sick feeling over these behemoths for a long time, seeing Facebook as the obvious repository of personal information.  Now that these organizations are in direct partnerships with the government, nothing there should be considered secure or private.  All connections, the “metadata” are fair game.  All utterances are recorded forever, and can land one in prison if they can be sold by a prosecutor as a threat or a matter of “national security.”  Police regularly go into Facebook accounts of suspects and gather up all their friends and acquaintances’ information.  This is standard practice, you should be aware.

As we descend into totalitarianism, here is where it all went wrong.  Here is where the corporate/government collusion has stripped your lives bare and left you at the mercy of the US STASI, as well as every other level of so-called “law” enforcement, although the laws that limit the activities of the government itself are never enforced by anybody..
