#RestoretheFourth (take action gosh darn it)

4th_amendment

 

Call Congress! Rally in the streets! Get up, get angry and get involved, but remember that change requires more than just one phone call or attending one rally! The surveillance currently being conducted by the NSA has been going on for several years now and it has relied on the collusion of Internet companies, telecoms, government, and most importantly it has relied on the passivity of a population easily distracted by fancy electronic gadgets. So, restore the fourth, but also…

Take steps to secure the privacy of your personal devices (a resource guide)

Keep in mind that Paranoia is not a tactic, systemic critique is needed

Remember, that “More than Machinery we need humanity”

Recognize that a bias towards surveillance may be embedded in some of the technology you use

And as you fret about the panopticon be wary of falling for a Panoptic Con
