John Perry Barlow (Grateful Dead Lyricist, Dick Cheney Campaign Manager, George Wallace Voter), the CIA, and the Genesis of Social Media

In FTR #854, we noted John Perry Barlow’s background as Dick Cheney’s campaign manager and George Wallace supporter in 1968. In FTR #895, we discussed the fact that the Electronic Frontier Foundation embraced technologies developed by CIA-linked institutions. Barlow founded the EFF. It turns out that Barlow was invited to CIA headquarters in 1992 and advanced concepts that may well have lead to the development of social media–“. . . Let’s create a process of information digestion in which inexpensive data are gathered from largely open sources and condensed, through an open process . . .

It would use off-the-shelf technology, and use it less for gathering data than for collating and communicating them. Being off-the-shelf, it could deploy tools while they were still state-of-the-art. . . .”

Privacy Concerns Got You Down? Well Then, Enjoy This!

As readers peruse the items excerpted below, they should remember that military and intelligence establishments are almost always way ahead of the civilian sector in cutting-edge scientific research and development. New research has permitted scientists to successfully implant faulty memories in test animals. Portable brain scanning devices are being marketed for casual consumer use. Suffice it to say, that we are entering into a technological age which will not only render constitutional democracy obsolete, but will change and negate the very concepts underlying our physical and cognitive existence and civilization.

FTR #323 The Unabomber

Listen: Side 1 | Side 2 Highlighting an aspect of “the Unabomber” case that has attracted comparatively little attention, this program documents convicted Unabomber Theodore Kaczynski’s participation in an experiment at Harvard while an undergraduate. This experiment may very well been part of the intelligence community’s psychological experimentation and mind control programs. 1. Shortly before […]
