Government Spying “Worse than Orwell”

The United Nations privacy chief says that government spying is “worse than Orwell”.

He’s right …

The editor of the Guardian newspaper said:

Orwell could never have imagined anything as complete as this, this concept of scooping up everything all the time.

Edward Snowden said in 2013 that NSA spying was worse than in Orwell’s book 1984.

Swedish Pirate Party founder Rick Falkvinge writes:

We are already far, far past the point of Stasi or “1984”.

And Bill Binney – the highest-level NSA whistleblower ever, the senior technical director within the agency who managed thousands of NSA employees and created the agency’s mass surveillance program for digital information – told Washington’s Blog:

Current surveillance is far beyond an Orwellian state.

    Well it is either peeping tom crap or surfing porn until americans cut the spending.

    • Brockland A.T.

      The U.S. government doesn’t have to back off spending.

      As THE world’s reserve currency, and the major currency of investment and trade, they can almost print gold, borrowing off everyone else’s GDP to support American MIIC spending. The bankster class has maneuvered the $US to be backed by more than just the American taxpayer.

      In that sense, every individual and country that invests in the $US subsidizes the surveillance regime. They have few choices; with every country willfully crashing their currency, there is no way for people with money to get investment return – preserve and expand wealth; purchasing power – except through the gateway of the $US. Even dedicated currency traders playing arbitrage game with lesser currencies use the $US to cash out into wealth.

      As long as other currencies prop it up, the American government can spend and spend the other currencies into the ground. Much of U.S. foreign policy – wars and intel – is devoted to ensuring controlled economic chaos to preserve $US hegemony.

      The $US has moved from being a gold-backed dollar, to a petrodollar, to a bankster dollar; pure money in the sense of no longer being backed directly by any commodity but other people’s money. Of course, overwhelming military and intelligence force is needed to keep it that way.

      U.S. dollar hegemony the epitomes the neocon ‘last man standing’ grand strategy.

    The Big Secret Behind the Spying Program. While many Americans understand why the NSA is conducting mass surveillance of U.S. citizens, some are still confused about what’s really going on.

    500 Years of History Shows that Mass Spying Is ALWAYS Aimed at Crushing Dissent

  • January 4, 2015 Americans need to understand that they have lost their country. ‘How America Was Lost’ from 9/11 to the Police/Warfare State

    “Americans need to understand that they have lost their country. The rest of the world needs to recognize that Washington is not merely the most complete police state since Stalinism, but also a threat to the entire world. The hubris and arrogance of Washington, combined with Washington’s huge supply of weapons of mass destruction, make Washington the greatest threat that has ever existed to all life on the planet. Washington is the enemy of all humanity.”—Paul Craig Roberts

    Actually, Wikileaks, Julian Assange, Glenn Greenwald & Edward Snowden, are all known to global intelligence agencies and EU governments, as CIA liars, frauds & hoaxers.

    Senior CIA advisor for 5 decades, Zbigniew Brzezinski, has admitted Wikileaks are CIA ‘selected’ & Assange is fraud … Zbig’s son worked with Snowden & Zbig’s daughter promoted Fast Eddie Snowden

    Julian Assange of Wikileaks is almost certainly NOT living as claimed at the Ecuador Embassy in London, but moved in & out by Britain’s MI5 – MI6 agents for his photo ops & meetings, with the UK police ‘watching’ the embassy so as to know when to move him … and Ecuador and its London staff getting a few bribes and favours for playing along.

    Note that the pumpers of Julian Assange & Edward Snowden – UK Guardian & NY Times – are the same CIA newspapers telling endless lies about Syria, Ukraine & etc. The same 2 CIA newspapers with criminal charge complaints against them in Europe, for publishing lies about real refugees from the USA.

    How strange people trust CIA media – to tell them who is a ‘hero’ … such as the neo-con-serving Julian Assange. Note that Wikileaks avoids ‘leaks’ on Israel, and claims that with thousands of documents they have from Saudi Arabia etc Israel is basically ‘not there’ – ha! Julian Assange is a pro-Israel loyalist, a weird guy who was, as a child, documented as being in an Australian CIA mind-control-manipulation programme … and he is weird enough to want to pose as living in the Ecuador embassy in what he imagines as being a centre of attention. Nearly everything about Wiki Stinky Leaks, stinks.

    What you have with Assange / Snowden is ‘limited hang-out’ … ‘selected’ docs on things we already know are happening anyway. E.g., Snowden ‘revelations’ were on the web 5 years earlier on many websites from previous whistle-blowers. These ‘leaks’ are a blackmail and terrorisation game, plus trying to pump up CIA media companies like the Guardian, plus entrapping, silencing, likely killing any real dissidents who contact the Assange / Snowden teams … and de-legitimising any real dissident who doesn’t have CIA media hype promoting him.

    That Assange & Snowden are frauds, is beyond any shadow of a doubt if you read the European intel agency reports on Snowden and Greenwald, originally prepared for Moscow, well-buried by CIA contractor Google Inc:
    Putin himself drops hints Snowden is a fraud, but gullible Western media, and even alternative media, fear to pick up the thread about fake CIA-supplied ‘heroes’ Snowden and Assange.

    As is well-proven, Snowden never ‘stole’ anything, the CIA gives his ‘nothing really new’ docs directly to his fake ‘brave journalists’ connected to CIA & Rothschilds (Greenwald & Guardian), with Snowden in fact a friend of Dick Cheney & Zbig Brzezinski. Notice that the faker Greenwald produces almost zero ‘brave journalism’ despite US $50 million in funding from CIA billionaire & murder-sponsor-in-Ukraine Pierre Omidyar.

      “Zbig’s son worked with Snowden & Zbig’s daughter promoted Fast Eddie Snowden”

      Is that so? Mika Brzezinski, “Zbig’s” only daughter, who is in the CIA but in deep cover as a journalist and television host?

      And Snowden worked with Ian Brzezinski? Ian Brzezinski left Booz Allen Hamilton in 2010 to start The Brzezinski Group. Snowden was not hired there until 2013.

      Or perhaps you meant the other “Zbig” son, Mark. Snowden must have worked with him when he was Booz Allen Hamilton’s Swedish correspondent, since Mark Brzezinski was the United States Ambassador to Sweden during all of Snowden’s employment by the security contractor. Prior to that Snowden was a security guard, who was unlikely to have access to much in the way of secret information. And you are full of it.
