Allen L. Roland: PRISM NSA's Privatized Retrieval and Information Spectrum Manipulation.
So now it's common knowledge that America has built a massive full spectrum privatized information retrieval apparatus (PRISM) which becomes fully operational this fall, and confirms that we are now living in Orwell's invasive Oceania, where technology is being consciously used to manipulate the public as well as crush human liberty and deny our privacy. All of this is preparation for the fast approaching New World Order: Once we roared like lions for liberty and now we bleat like sheep for security. Coming face to face with PRISM, is like the cave men in Kubrick's 2001 Space Odyssey experiencing the dark monolith, which looks purposely similar to an Apple I phone 5, and the first realization that they are being monitored by a technology far more powerful than themselves which, like the party members in Orwell's Oceania, they will eventually learn to love in their servitude. In the June 16, 2013 issue of Information Clearing House, JP Higgs shares that the Associated Press dropped a bombshell report that claims the NSA's secret Internet spy program Prism, is just a small part of a much more expansive and intrusive digital spying effort. According to the AP, the NSA copies ALL INTERNET traffic in and out of the United States for analysis by hoovering all data that passes through fiber lines. Tapping into those cables allows the NSA access to monitor emails, telephone calls, video chats, websites, bank transactions and more. It takes powerful computers to decrypt, store and analyze all this information, but the information is all there, zipping by at the speed of light, AP reports. Prism was originally thought to be a program to force Internet companies to hand over private user data to the government. But it turns out that Prism is actually a filtering tool to make sense of the cacophony of the Internet's raw feed. Prism takes large beams of data and helps the government find discrete, manageable strands of information. It then manages those strands of data by creating dossiers on every Internet user, providing the government with names, addresses, conversation histories and entire archives of email inboxes. And, of course, all this data is collected and kept on innocent people without a warrant or any probable cause. This explosive report comes the same day that the NSA held a classified briefing for members of Congress last Wednesday? Glenn Greenwald, who broke the Spying scandal in the Guardian, reveals that we have just touched the tip of the iceberg.
