The Egyptians Were Better!

The legacy of Ancient Egyptian architecture is not some ego driven, self congratulatory spasm of construction.
Ancient Egyptians built their statues and their pyramids not to honour a king but more to honour a land and a people. No one Pharaoh ever saw the end of a construction project which they had started. In Ancient Egypt, death was only the begining. Gratification was never instant. They built for the ages. Their psychy was something which we cannot compare to in the present. The only thing which generations build in earnest these days is debt. Ancient Egyptians built as a testimony to their ABILITY as a people.

We now create more and more debt in testimony to our LIABILITY as a world.

CISPA Is The Tip, Everything Else Is The Iceberg

UH OH. America’s internet userbase has a new threat in the horizon, CISPA!
People are worried that their info and their online doings are gonna be a matter of public knowledge, like what they have now is a nice and secure network…

For fucks sake people, ITS ALL PUBLIC!

My facebook account setting is always public because I never want to suffer an illusion of privacy while going about my business online. Also because I wouldnt want Big brother to get the impression that we are exclusive.
E’rebody gets access to mine!

The thing is people, that button you push to restrict who gets access to your account is a virtual placebo. Like those crosswalk buttons in New York only even more pointless. If your government treats you like a criminal by spying on you then you had better start acting like one and cover your tracks online. Dont say anything you wouldnt be comfortable shouting from a rooftop!

So assume you’re ALWAYS broadcasting on an open channel when you’re online.
Coz trust me, the monster has got your cookies, your passwords and with social networking data, like 70% of your personality and 99% of your contacts.

Its not a matter of IF they’ve got access but of when they will feel it worth their while to dissect you!
