Prism: Rainbow of Info Especially GREEN?

If you have voiced your opinion in favor of the biosphere and opposed to those who want to commodify it in any way (Big Oil, Big Ag, Big Pharma and such) by visiting sites like 350.org, TruthOut, moveOn.org and so on, then your correspondence in email and on social media may already have fallen under certain filters for scrutiny.

After all, we can’t have the rabble like you and me mucking around with business as usual. It’s generally bad for the shareholders.

So Prism is just about being prepared to control those future impulses to rein in environmental outrages that would dampen the profits  the of Monsanto, Exxon Mobile and the like.

We have to be gratified that the Gov at the highest levels sees the handwriting on the wall. But it’s more than a little alarming that they plan to immediately surveil anything that ends up on that wall that might represent sand in the gears of unfettered progress.

  1. Thanks for the links. While traveling, I don’t keep up,with the news. Now I don’t feel so out of it. My inbox is always full of environmental groups, so I guess I’m a person of interest.
