In an astounding cover story for the March 21 issue of TIME called Your Data for Sale, author Joel Stein tells readers to simply get over constant surveillance. The tagline,Everything about you is being tracked get over it puts the issue in your face. Yeah, get over it, and the TSA porno-scanners and grope-downs, too.
Newsweek, like TIME, another Skull and Bones-dominated media organ, similarly published a shocker in 2009 with its cover story,The Case for Killing Granny, preparing the masses to simply accept massive shifts in societys norms as if it were a trifling occurrence. Unauthorized NSA wiretapping and other related surveillance (started long ago) was at least controversial during the Bush Administration, though it has unabashedly continued under Obama.
In an promotional interview with CNN about the article, author Joel Stein makes light of the fact that his social security number (and lots of other personal data), as well as that of his family members, were easily found online. Stein and CNN host Kiran Chetry giggle like schoolgirls about Facebooks exploitation of personal data, and the many other data-mining companies who keep permanent files on us. Stein even quips that he has blackmail material now on his mother and sister, whose SSN numbers he obtained during his research. Stein further called personalized-ads on systems like Googles G-MAIL kinda cool. Thats right, now that were at the heart of a big brother system, 1984 is kinda cute-and-fuzzy.
While these options may improve some aspects of online privacy, dont hold your breath. Your ISPs alone are likely storing complete records of everything you do, to say nothing of what the NSA and other intelligence outlets have underway.
It would seem the death of privacy and the 4th amendment is officially upon us. Morever, its something to be passively accepted and even laughed about. The TIME story has a publish date of March 21, 2011; the detailed story text is not yet available.
