FOR SALE YOUR PRIVACY: The ATT Scandal
by BUREAU of ARTS and CULTURE News / Writer J. A. TRILIEGI
Many of us, in the American populist, and in the press, those aware of the creeping invasion of privacy issues, that have blurred considerably, since 911, between church, between business and between state, regarding the public's privacy of communications and other related matters, concerning the sharing of information on Individuals with local, state and federal authorities, have been waiting for a fallout of some sort, to no avail. Most journalists have had a strong understanding of these issues and how they now pertain to, not just the firemen, policemen, highway patrol and the sheriff's department's sharing so-called, 'information,' about average, below average and above average Americans, in the name of 'Homeland Security,' all the while, dispersing funds, for the gathering of that information, to new and poorly trained non professionals in departments as low level as Transit Authority and related businesses such as taxi's and other public transportations that connect people with airplanes, boats and ships.
"There may have just been a crack in the wall, that someday soon, could lead to some brave Individual or Politician actually pushing that wall of invasive laws, originally passed for our safety, and now being used for profit, to the ground."
Now, at least things are out in the open with what is now commonly called, "PROJECT HEMISPHERE," [ link provided below ]. Many concerned have had their hands tied by The Patriot Act, which absolves the government from seeking prior permission to delve into our lives, at will, at whimsy, and or, any other false leads, that may be pointed at private individuals who may seek to stand firm in the actual American Constitution and or The Bill of Rights. There may have just been a crack in the wall, that someday soon, could lead to some brave Individual or Politician actually pushing that wall of invasive laws, originally passed for our safety, and now being used for profit, to the ground. It has been reported recently, in The Daily Beast, [ link provided below] that ATT is selling that private information for actual dollars, while we, the public, are paying them to provide an important communication service. Now the plot thickens as ATT wishes to purchase Time Warner which includes HBO, and CNN, just to name a few Companies listed under that umbrella.
"The ideal vision of a world of one has now been easily manipulated into a Gossip Column of One, which wishes to bully, control, scare and manipulate individuals of any sort, who may speak their mind, expose the truth, make a difference, or dammit, just express themselves as AMERICANS."
The American public is in for a rude awakening as these corporations and companies slowly dissolve our privacy, while many Americans are too busy, either surviving, working, going to school, or worse, actually enjoying the mindless sharing of information, cooperating with this surveillance game, about their neighbors, their workmates and their representatives, that it appears as if CONFORMITY, by those in power and those with none at all, see this game as something that they might be able to utilize. Anybody with long term goals, anybody with a sense of history, anybody with a moral compass not being pointed directly at anyone else, except themselves, can see the problems here. The ideal vision of a world of one has now been easily manipulated into a Gossip Column of One, which wishes to bully, control, scare and manipulate individuals of any sort, who may speak their mind, expose the truth, make a difference, or dammit, just express themselves as AMERICANS. This is extremely complicated territory we are now treading.
"Everyday people are now mimicking an absolute device which does nothing but attempt to manipulate individuals, by any such group of people, be it, the government, a corporation, a church, an ethnic or religious affiliation or even a simple neighborhood."
A good many American professionals, employed at News Media Outlets, Film Studios, Music Industries, Publishing Entities and Communication Companies have been privy to the issues for quite some time. The employees were hired, trained and explained directly, post 911, how, why and what this new game was all about. instead of opposing the initial exposure of information, they decided, on one level or another, that cooperating with the US Government and its new stance was optimum. We saw this, through the years during wartime, we saw this again, during the cold war and we are now seeing it in the every day populist. Everyday people are now mimicking an absolute device which does nothing but attempt to manipulate individuals, by any such group of people, be it, the government, a corporation, a church, an ethnic or religious affiliation or even a simple neighborhood. If it were not so actual, so real, so concrete , from top to bottom, it might actually make a good book, film or television show, and plenty have indeed reflected this state, unfortunately, the actual reality of the matter, is astounding fatal. People thought it was cool to 'know,' something about another. The celebrity aspect of 'inquiring minds wanting to know', now entirely bastardized and spread like mud across our Rights as American Citizen's from the bottom of boots which no longer are there to protect us, but there to cajole, interfere and tamper with our ability to create original works of Art, original works of Literature, original works of Cinema, original works of Legislation, original works of Fashion, original Works of Any Sort, is completely jeopardized by anyone who can 'BUY,' our communications, invade our desktops and use their authority and or their position within a Company or University or Government to block newcomers, harass independents, provoke individuals and retain a position within an industry or workplace or a place of higher learning.
"But now, with ATT Selling Your Information for Profit, and with the new acquisition proposal and desire to purchase Time/Warner, the entire careers of individuals, rates and the quality of products and services, the downsizing of our entire Entertainment, News and Media Companies is looking, with any foresight, like a dreaded future, where only those who are established will survive and everyone else, in the middle and below, will not even have a chance."
The worlds where I have spent my entire life working, studying and formulating are now, different altogether, than they once were. Film Studios, Art Galleries, Publishing Houses, News and Media Outlets all have used, in one way or another, this new information age to their advantage, we cannot blame them, the economy rules their existence and that allowed for this invasion of privacy, to spread as it has. But now, with ATT Selling Your Information for Profit, and with the new acquisition proposal and desire to purchase Time/Warner, the entire careers of individuals, rates and the quality of products and services, the downsizing of our entire Entertainment, News and Media Companies is looking, with any foresight, like a dreaded future, where only those who are established will survive and everyone else, in the middle and below, will not even have a chance. In the Cinema Arts it means that there will be few new discoveries, people like Richard Linklater, Spike Lee and even Spike Jonze, who all started with relatively quirky and original works, will most likely work at a limited level of success, budgets and distribution, if at all. In the world of Fine Arts, more and more, new painters, such as the late Jean Michel Basquiat, will most likely, go undiscovered. Or, and this has already developed, they will be supported only by their group, their school, their race or their religious affiliation. The same goes for Literature, new authors will fall to the wayside, The Colson Whithead's, The Zadie Smith's, and yes, The Joshua Triliegi's will not be discovered, published, reviewed, or given a career span that fine art, cinema and literature demand. Not to mention what this means to the youth of America.
"You are an AMERICAN and you as an individual, do matter. You matter, when you are kind to one another, you matter when you mind our own business, you matter when race, income and religion have no influence on your daily exchanges with one another, you matter when you do NOT cooperate with Invasion of Privacy games that, at first appeared powerful, profitable and acceptable, but now lay before us, weak, manipulative, bogus and downright no damn good. "
This is a clear and present danger that screams, loudly, and rather succinct that you as an Individual mean absolutely nothing at all. Well, This writer is here to say that the opposite is TRUE. You are an AMERICAN and you as an individual, do matter. You matter, when you are kind to one another, you matter when you mind our own business, you matter when race, income and religion have no influence on your daily exchanges with one another, you matter when you do NOT cooperate with Invasion of Privacy games that, at first appeared powerful, profitable and acceptable, but now lay before us, weak, manipulative, bogus and downright no damn good. It is high time for Americans to rethink their relationship with that little communication device that has become so near and dear: your cell phone. Which causes brain defects in children, has damaged the natural order of insects, obstructing the natural pollination your food, and now, you are being duped into paying for a personal communication device, which Your Private Information is being SOLD to Agencies and Entities for a Profit. If the entire matter were not so absurd, it might actually be interesting. The fact, quite obviously is, there is no easy way out, It is the Vietnam of our Era, and, it took us a few decades to arrive, most likely, it will take us that many to alleviate. You have a car, you have a cell phone, a celebrity retweeted your tweet, a world of One. Lets face it, Americans are constantly being manipulated by the two governing political parties, who sold us out to Big Medicine Companies several decades ago, they sold us to Big Banks eight years ago, and without noticing, we've now been sold to Big Communication Companies, if we, as a solid and unified group of Human Beings living in North America do not take charge of our direct relationship of representatives, besides the four year carnival we now call The Presidency, than what will be left of America ? What will be left for the next generations ? Of course, sarcastically speaking, if you are someone who cares more about the question "What did Joshua Triliegi watch on-line last night ?" Than, it appears, I just waisted your time, with relevant questions, that actually, concern, your future. So, then, you pick up your phone, and, your important, you don't have to worry, it's ok, you heard that ATT was hiring. And, you just sold out… Or, You Fought back.
