an alarmist view of DARPA

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is the central research
and development organization for the Department of Defense. I hesistate to rename Department to Ministry. In any case, it’s time to shed some light on DARPA and it’s current pet projects.

First, there’s the TIA Project, TIA stands for Total Information Awareness. http://www.wired.com/news/politics/0,1283,56620,00.html
Sounds a bit Orwellian doesn’t it? Well, it is.

“What national security experts and civil libertarians want to know is, why would the Defense Department want to do such a thing?

The embryonic LifeLog program would dump everything an individual does into a giant database: every e-mail sent or received, every picture taken, every Web page surfed, every phone call made, every TV show watched, every magazine read. “

Yes, please protect me oh mighty government, here rake all my privacy away and go catch those evil terrorists. Well, clearly you can all see the problem with this. DARPA not only wants to create this TIA database, but they are also spending millions looking on ways to ‘enhance’ the military.

Yes, one way is by numbing the soldiers to pain. C’mon, who wants a soldier who’s wounded and actually stops fighting as a result of that? Better yet, how about soldiers who don’t even have to eat every day?

Hell, DARPA even wanted a market where persons speculate on terrorist attacks like pork on the commodities exchange.

Sure, Hitler is dead but it looks like DARPA is keeping at least some of his dreams alive. Honestly, DARPA is something Hitler could only have had wet dreams about. It’s almost unfair to Hitler to mention DARPA in the same breath. No, no, DARPA seeks much more than the annihilation of human lives, it seeks their ultimate enslavement.

Please keep your eyes on DARPA. Don’t stay in the dark, for the fight for the liberties of all people, rest on our Total Information Awareness of the Fascists of the 21st Century.
