The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

History lesson: Spy tech changes, plan for social control remains



Ramblinactivist 2021/16, 8th September 2021.

The most effective books are able to transcend time; by applying a relatively broad, well-observed analysis of the roots of complex issues in the past, that continue to have relevance today. This is such a book.

‘The Technology of Political Control’ – by Carol Ackroyd, Karen Margolis, Jonathan Rosenhead, and Tim Shallice  – was first published in March 1977.

Almost forty-five years since its publication, ‘The Technology of Political Control’ remains a truly remarkable book. And one that, especially for those involved in social movements today, can still provide an enlightening view of how technology constrains our lives. For that reason it’s worth a read because of the insights it can give us all.
