What Will They Think of Next? DARPA’s “Malintent” Machines

This is why free people don't allow standing armies; they're always turned against the citizenry.

As America’s War On Terror morphs into an endless assault on civil and human rights, the technophilic fantasies of our masters, and the corporations whom they lovingly serve, even amidst the doom and gloom of capitalism’s global economic collapse, have taken extraordinary steps to ensure that the “state of exception” spawned by the 9/11 provocation remains a permanent feature of daily life here in the heimat.

And with moves by Barack Obama’s “change” regime to strip Americans of their Miranda rights, “delay” their appearance before a lawful court should they be accused of a national security crime, or even assassinate them if an arm of the secret state fingers them as terrorists (evidence optional), it’s a sure bet that as “ideas about security infect virtually all aspects of public policy,” as Stephen Graham avers in Cities Under Siege, new silver bullets will be needed to “keep us safe.”

In doing so it demonstrated that it will not willingly set limits on its own power and reinforced the need for Congress to step in and reform the so-called ‘state secrets’ privilege. The House Judiciary Committee will be taking the first step toward such reform when it begins to consider the State Secret Protection Act of 2009 (HR 984) this Wednesday, so please visit our action center now to voice your support!
