The Potocols are a work of Genius, we should claim it for ourselves and Rebuild Humanity.

Electronic privacy is one of the most over debated topics for ten years running. We hear from thousands of experts, officials and hysterical porn addicts, each and every one of them approaches the issue from one of two viewpoints: Privacy at all cost versus public security at all cost. I believe these to be pre-agreed opposites to serve as fake discussion issue while the Orwellian agenda is happening around us anyway. The true solution is much simpler, cheaper and safer. We stop worrying about electronic privacy on anything you cannot secure reliably. Let them openly read your letters and scrutinise your shopping lists. None of that is new, King Solomon did it. Then we open the Book of Public Accounts. Enact a read-only public server, open to any citizen at any time. The data can be updated at the end of every working day. It’s that easy. 

An end to secrecy, all citizens equal before the law, all non-citizens acting in the public sphere open to scrutiny, all public servants in position of trust under constant, free surveillance. That smells to me like freedom. 

Private is private, and no law can prevent you from being private. People can be bribed or coerced into betraying you and thereby cause you to give away your privacy; Facebook sharing your user data with the CIA is nothing, the backdoor in your operating system that allows spying on you even via the microphone and camera, that is criminal. Every programmer starts out trying to build the most secure platform possible, but sooner than later, it will either be co-opted or eliminated. By now, no operating system is safe anymore, Intel and friends have the government contracts, and they took out all the competition for being criminally uncompetitive. The back door is in the hardware. 

The only distinction we need make, is between public presentation and private identity. These are the only two levels of privacy, no grey area. Private is that which you do not display in public. Whatever you share, do or interact with the world outside your private identity, is public. Everything. You cannot post naked pictures of me, because I have never voluntarily appeared naked in public. A pop singer, on the other hand, can be portrayed as anything she has been seen to do on any media she has ever sent out into the world, for advertising or performance. A politician signed up for a specific term of public service. If he wants his private life to remain private, then he must not have a private life until his term is over. This is not a high price to pay for such power, surely? 

How many secrets can a government have? Not the military, the government. Anyway, the concept of secret weaponry is a joke. Everything has been privatised, including the design, manufacture and even deployment of all systems of war is now in the hands of private corporations. Many of these corporations are just subsidiaries of a few larger arms companies, which in turn belong to a surprisingly small group of so-called Multinationals. Multinationals are always spelled with a capitol M, because not only do they have all the rights of a private citizen in all places, it is not bound by the law of any of the places, while being protected by national armed forces as if a governing institution. 

So, if the same people make all the weapons for the entire world, what weapon secrets are we paying to protect? Defence plans? Those are not shared with anyone in the lower ranks anyway, the Generals have secrets amongst themselves, pledged to secure the borders. Attack plans? In war, no-one has time to play; the military will look after their own. Plans to invade another country? That’s war, which my government should not even consider without popular acceptance.  

Economic policy kept secret is always detrimental to the public purse. The only reason one keeps a deal secret, is to have advantage over competitors in your market; that is Trade, not economics. The government is not supposed to trade. It safeguards my production, it safeguards my currency, and in return it taxes my merchandise. Instead there are the secrets of Economists, usually about manipulating markets to extract profit from speculation. Why is my government using public money and resources safeguarding the trade information of people stealing the nation’s pensions, infrastructure utilities and resources? To protect “investor confidence”, in other words protecting the interests of the very people stripping the economy? 

So, what secrets can a government have? Only the people serving in government have secrets. Those are the ones we are paying for. This is where an open electronic society can serve humanity best; we will become more accepting of each other’s thoughts, while learning to curtail our perversions whatever little thing it may be. And let’s face it, if you can maintain management control of a public service department, I care not what movies you watch, provided you are not of the Rhodean persuasion. We will each decide our own limit the day you declare yourself available for public office. We will be able to see who you are publically, and we shall know the tree by the fruit. Most secrets kept by public officials in their official capacities seem to revolve around their dealings with the Mafia, economists and speculators anyway.

There are other, darker secrets, secrets amongst thieves, Brotherhood secrets, and people with those kind of secrets are always open to blackmail, these are the secrets we need to uncover, if we want to clean our world of the ruling Mafias now oppressing us. I do not really care what a man does in private, but some people take things too far, and when they get caught by the same people who caused the circumstances, they always end up shutting up and partaking in the organised participation of whatever despicability they were caught participating in. This is how our rulers have built an impenetrable wall around themselves, effectively blocking out all competition or even scrutiny: they are an exclusive club of perverted criminals, aiding and abetting each other in their Great Work: the destruction of mankind for reasons the elite think they alone are privy to.

So, what other secrets can a government have? Contracts? Let us all see, because this country has the best auditor in the world. No, not that secretive brotherhood Multinational lawyer firm you appointed as my Auditor General, oh no, I am talking about a couple of million angry civilians poring through every transaction, looking for their tax money. Let us see every contract our government has ever signed, ever since 1899 when the British first turned us into a business unit for Cecil John Rhodes and his queens. We need to know who signed those contracts, how they were bribed or coerced into signing, and most importantly, we need to see how many times we have been unwittingly screwed by those contracts only working one way. I do believe we could kill off our national debt just by looking at how many times Mittal has broken contract and good faith with our steel industry. De Beers' back taxes and subsidies could pay for a new military, banking sector and free education for all, if only we could see the paperwork. If they pay back just the police salaries expended upon protecting their monopoly, we could be the first nation on Mars.

Secret deals with other countries? Too many detrimental economic policies have been enforced as part of corrupt collusion between Multinational entities using governments to guarantee their profit margins. Once again, open those agreements and contracts; we have a team of lawyers millions strong, willing to work for free, looking for loopholes and reasons to scrap those contracts, so we can get back our government, our currency, our minerals, industry, life. Somehow, Multinationals always trip up, mostly through arrogance and the hubris of puppet politicians taking the flack. The populace will find every mistake, and we can prevent future corrupt agreements between non-citizens allocating and being allocated public monies.
