the debate over
One World Government. President George Bush talked about a New World Order. Many
presidents were members of an organization dedicated to this ideology.
Frequently, American Armed Forces find themselves under United Nations command
and the U.S. leads the way in the advancement of global trade. Yet, when weary
citizens warn of a plot to eliminate American sovereignty, skeptics say it's
nothing more than paranoia over mythical black helicopters of the inner mind.
But it was the mainstream press which exposed Carnivore to the American
public for the most part. The program is reminiscent of George Orwell's vision
of a world dominated by Big Brother in his classic novel, 1984.
"Echelon" was a project which also scanned private phone conversations
for similar key phrases. Operated by a foreign government for purposes of
plausible denial, Great Britain listens in on our phone calls and we eavesdrop
on theirs. This way, the Constitutional guarantee of the right to privacy is not
violated, at least in a technical sense.
Our Nation's Founding Fathers must certainly be turning in their graves.
Incidentally, Janet Reno claims the Carnivore system can only be activated under
court order. And the FBI says the system has only been used fifty times.
However, with human nature as it is, the potential for misuse looms like a sword
of Damocles over the heads of American citizens.
Perhaps most puzzling to me is this. We have a system which can isolate
particular e-mails, out of millions, yet we cannot find thousands of White House
e-mails connected with possible campaign fundraising irregularities. Maybe the
problem is the White House e-mails don't want to be found. Or, possibly, the
people looking for the e-mails don't want to find them.
Wow! I just realized I've used the words "president, bomb and
assassination" all in the same e-mail in order to send this to be posted on
the RFFM website.
Perhaps the FBI will be reading this before you do. Ahh, technology. Isn't it
