My Netwar Diaries Volume 2: Surveillance Dreams and Jackboot Pillows
This, the second book in the Netwar Diaries series leaves the constitutional law ballast on the dock and takes a deeper dive into the depths of how we are surveilled, numbered, tracked, bordered, repressed and imprisoned. This work covers developments in the domestic surveillance and repression regime from 2015 to the withdrawal of overt American combat forces from Afghanistan.
Beginning during the Obama Administration and straddling the years of Orange Mussolini, Netwar Diaries two extends the narrative into the eternal sundowning of Democracy that is the regime of Joe Biden. Touching on a wide range or sources from Radley Balko to Shoshana Zuboff to Simone Browne, this book examines how social control has always been at the heart of digital policy and how race has always been central to the gradient of repression.
It looks at primary sources of the ideology of information age conflict and places current and historical events in that context:
"This is what our leaders were reading while they were planning the Iraq war and Al Gore was pretending he invented the internet. Meanwhile, I was reading it too."
"This volume will also examine the consequences of the ever expanding surveillance regime. Eyes are one part of a body, the fist is another. The latter sections are on police and prisons, because technology has implementation, strategy devolves to tactics, and repressions has victims."
