It’s Anti-Surveillance-Day, 14 February 2014

Stop Surveillance

Totalitarian Paranoia in the Post-Orwellian Surveillance State

Stop-SurveillanceSurveillance has become a growing feature of daily life. In fact, it is more appropriate to analyze the culture of surveillance, rather than address exclusively the violations committed by the corporate-surveillance state.

In this instance, the surveillance and security state is one that not only listens, watches and gathers massive amounts of information through data mining necessary for identifying consumer populations but also acculturates the public into accepting the intrusion of surveillance technologies and privatized commodified values into all aspects of their lives.

Cracker Singer Apologizes To Neil Young After Bandmate’s Attack Over HuffPost Piracy Article

Cracker’s David Lowery issued an apology yesterday to Neil Young after bandmate Johnny Hickman slammed Young for his stance about music piracy.

In a Huffington Post article Monday, Young was quoted comparing the piracy of music to being the new version of radio.

“It doesn’t affect me because I look at the internet as the new radio,” he said. “I look at the radio as gone… Piracy is the new radio. That’s how music gets around… That’s the radio. If you really want to hear it, let’s make it available, let them hear it, let them hear the 95 percent of it.”

Young’s comments were taken from the D: Dive Into Media conference he appeared at this past January.

According to, Hickman took to the band’s Twitter account to take it to Young.

“Fuck you Neil Young, I love most of your music (some of it sucks ass) that you made millions upon millions of dollars on,” Hickman tweeted. The full statement has been removed but had the full statement which continued: “…you own property all over the world, have 50 antique gas guzzling cars and a full recording have no say in the matter NOW you rich, greedy old asshole. We hundredaire working class musicians DO!”
