FOX News reports:
“A privacy watchdog’s freedom of information request has revealed a government memo encouraging agents to befriend people on a variety of social networks, to take advantage of their readiness to share — and spy on them.
While many have reacted with understandable outrage, pause to consider that federal agents, in particular, need to be exposed to as much anarchist propaganda as can be arranged. If we’re all doing our jobs as activists, they’ll be drinking from the propaganda firehose. Social networks are not for distribution of operationally sensitive information. Putting our message in their face can only work to our advantage, though — particularly as increasing paranoia makes the hierarchical organization progressively more dysfunctional.
On Facebook, Victor Milan elaborated. His lightly edited remarks follow:
In any police state, those who come in contact with “enemy” or “subversive” doctrine are considered not just tainted, but infectious. They’re generally liquidated on orders of their own superiors, sooner or later — sometimes along with their families and close associates.
Meanwhile most State enforcers are like all the other employees locked in the State/Corporate Complex: they hate their jobs and hate their bosses. In addition, many of them realize their superiors are functional sociopaths who regard them as mere expendable rounds, to be burned up to pad one’s efficiency report.
The ones who don’t already know their pensions are (for the most part) already gone, and their salaries are being inflated to the point of worthlessness along with everybody else’s … well, they’ve just been exposed to that concept, haven’t they?
Finally, there’s the inevitability – sooner rather than later – of armed conflict among rival agencies and levels of government, including not just military and police but literally hundreds of heavily-armed official paramilitaries.
So, welcome, boys and girls! If you’re not one of us now, you most likely will be.
And remember: if you’re reading this — perhaps especially if doing so under orders — your bosses already consider you a suspect…
