#wordbombing : Mass Peacefull Protest Against Government Spying?

November 10th, 2013 No comments

It occurred to me that there is something we can do as a mass peaceful protest to circumvent mass data collection and spying on us by our own governments.

I haven’t done the math on the critical mass required, someone like Jacob Applebaum could probably do it in a minute or two but here is the idea:

Everyone adds some random terrorist sounding shit to the end of each and every email and phone conversation. The supercomputers supposedly triage all communications to seek out such stuff. If one million or ten million people, good honest citizens who believe privacy to be the basis of freedom and democracy did this, would it throw the supercomputers into mayhem?

Would this work? I don’t know. I am calling it #wordbombing – I wonder if in some quarters even my suggesting this would count as a terrorist act? I intend no harm, have no gun, wish to see a world where economics works for all and the planet – not just the few. This probably already has me on a watchlist somewhere!

“Today we are going to end the war in Iraq by lying on the beach, then we’re gonna end World hunger by going surfing and, finally, we’re going to end Global Warming by having breast implants and facelifts. Welcome to California.”

No one does sarcasm like the British.

And Now For Something Completely Different

July 18th, 2009 No comments

The world around us smells of decay

An empire beholden to men of hair grey

The streets are filled with many lost souls

Who can’t find their way in this city of gold

Lost souls since some day long ago

When they wondered and laughed and

Did not know all the things and stuff

That tore them apart never knowing

The meaning of anything
