You R Screwed
Soldiers Spies Traitors Bookstore
You R Screwed is about the growth of the United States Surveillance Police State and its penultimate coordination with all levers of power: corporate, social, and state.
There is nothing wrong until it goes horribly wrong. You can trust your government and its integrated corporate structures until you can’t.
This book takes no moral position or view. I am not advocating you walk around paranoid or change. Actually, the pop phrase is true: Resistance futile. It is true unless you have a plan and understand the threat.
I am advocating that you have a plan. You have an awareness of how screwed you are. It is my personal view that the United States government has already gone wrong. It is my personal view that the United States is a threat to our liberty and can not be trusted. I have one fact that hopefully will focus your mind: the United States government has a database with 8 million names called MainCore. It is a threat database. As an intelligence analyst I built these databases. I understand their need. However, it is shocking that the United State government thinks eight million of us are threats. It is shocking that MainCore will be activated by Presidential command.
You R Screwed because the United States government no longer needs to physically arrest eight million of us who are deemed threats. With the press of one button, you will wake up one day to find that your mobile phone, internet connection has been turned off. With the press of one button your bank accounts will be frozen, all your credit and debit cards frozen. With the press of one button you will be locked out of all transportation infrastructure: EZPass, Subway or Metro Cards. As you approach a turnstile facial recognition will activate a lock-out mode. When you attempt to flee, the police license plate reading network will locate your car anywhere in the United States and through coordination with car manufacturers and the specially installed “black box” in all new cars will turn off your engine. If you have bought a car like Tesla, the car will cease being yours. The government no longer has to physically seize your car. They can just turn it off.
Your home will be seized by the government by pressing one button.
Yes, Apple, Amazon, Ring and all the others fully cooperate with the United States government. Your electronic door locks, your ability to turn off and on your lights will be controlled by the government.
The government does not need to put you in a jail cell. They can simply control your doors and windows to only allow you to exit when they want.
None of this is futuristic. None of this is science fiction. These systems exist today. These systems are fully functioning today.
What does not exist today is a government willing to violate our constitution but we need to ask one question:
Are we on the verge of having that illegal government.
You R Screwed has two parts. In the first part I lay out the current threat: the United States government surveillance system. In the second part, I suggest possible actions to survive the coming government crackdown.
