Taking a close look at Facebook – Voluntary government surveillance

Got an e-mail from a reader who’s implying a frightening notion?


Over 200,000,000 people have Facebook entries.

Facebook claims over 100,000,000 access their accounts every day.

The CIA is one of the backers. So is the Department of Defense.

Corporate and government surveillance has never been easier.

When Alexander Solzhenitsyn was arrested by Stalin’s political police, his captors got lost.

Solzhenitsyn, a war hero (Stalin distrusted and hated war heroes), showed them how to read the map and get to where they were going.

That’s what millions of Americans are doing now.

Putting far more personal information that they should about themselves online for easy mining.
