Book Review: Spy Tells All How To Avoid Surveillance

British philosopher Jeremy Bentham wrote about Panopticon, the open air prison, where there are no doors or bars because the guards are constantly watching. Michel Foucault applied this to the modern surveillance state. Today America is the embodiment of Panopticon. The government with its tech partners like Google, Facebook, Amazon and your internet provider know every move you make. It is control of your actions because you know you are being watched.

William Church in his bestselling Citizen’s Privacy Manual provides the detailed method to avoid this surveillance. It deserves its five star rating on Amazon with reviewers calling it the “real deal.”

Church’s solution is practical and simple: let the government watch the “public” you while you operate as a private “you”. He provides detailed explanation how to establish a private you, how to communicate so that you can never be traced back to the public you, and the tools you need to a avoid all types of surveillance.

The methods are low cost–under $250–and readily available without any technical knowledge. His method can be followed anywhere in the world at any time. Church warns that encryption is worthless because it is the first thing governments look for and most important it is widely known encryption can be cracked. So called whistler-blower sites are full blown traps because the government can easily trace you by ISP traffic or simply get a warrant.

These methods are ideal for business people who want to conduct negotiations away from a corporate discovery framework. Ideal for private communications that you want to separate from your private life.

Citizen’s Privacy Manual is available on Amazon as both a paperback or ebook;
