You Just Might Be a Terrorist

Benjamin Franklin once said, “Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.” This was never more true than today. The security and surveillance industries are out of control raking in huge profits for unneeded and unwanted invasions of our rights to privacy in the name of security.

Technically today in this country everyone is a suspected terrorist and everyone is in violation of the law. That is because of absurd legislation passed by elected officials who no longer work for the people who elected them but the bankers and the corporations.

I cannot emphasize strongly enough that with the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act for 2012 and the Patriot Act anyone can be detained indefinitely without charges or trial and without any contact with the outside world. So if Dad goes to the store and buys the wrong things he could disappear and the government has no obligation to tell Mom that they have him. This book is a warning for Joe Public that things have changed radically over the years since 2001 and you better be aware of those changes. Even the most harmless and innocent activity or purchases can get you buried in the system for an indefinite amount of time.

Any store clerk who envisions themself as a detective helping the US fight terrorism, a vindictive neighbor, or just an overly suspicious stranger can file an online report called a SAR (Suspicious Activity Report) and get you put on any number of Watch Lists and under the scrutiny of the FBI, TSA, DHS, IRS, NSA or state and local authorities.  Do you want that?

If you would like a concise easy to follow guide on what not to do to get your name on one of these Watch Lists or get hassled by the authorities for suspected terrorism you can get one here.
