Room 641a

by Hugh Mungus

The State is, and always has been, the great single enemy of the human race, its liberty, happiness, and progress.

- Murray Rothbard

One room.

One corporation.

One monumental loss of your privacy.

2003. Folsom Street. SBC Communications in San Francisco. The government worked hand-in-pants with AT&T to begin gathering every electronic correspondence you, or any other "American," makes.

How did all this go down?

Wikipedia defines telecommunications as:

the transmission of signs, signals, messages, words, writings, images and sounds or information of any nature by wire, radio, optical or other electromagnetic systems.

AT&T is a telecommunications company. Thus, they have access to all the above generated by their clients. This means cell calls, texts, Twitters, Tweets and E-mails.

Let's backtrack. If you don't know by now that "America" is nothing more than a pyramid scheme - a corporation - you're asleep. Without money, the "U.S." - an ideology existing solely within our minds - dies. Remove cash from the equation, and there's nothing to fuel this bloodthirsty beast we're allowing to devour us.

Hence, when I speak of AT&T selling your privacy to the government, I'm being redundant, since AT&T - and every other corporation - is your government. Don't believe me?

Money's your God, isn't it? You worship it more than anything on the planet.

The proof is in the fact you kill yourself every day - stressing; abusing your body and mind; and selling your soul - to accumulate it. You can lie to me, but when you lie to yourself, it's called insanity. Money's your God, and I just proved it.

For the love of money

People will steal from their mother

For the love of money

People will rob their own brother

For the love of money

People can't even walk down the street [...]

For the love of money

People will lie, Lord, they will cheat

For the love of money

People don't care who they hurt or beat

- Bulletboys

Take a look at any denomination of cash for the proof in writing: "In God We Trust." Enough fuckin' said.

Room 641A - at 611 Folsom Street in San Francisco - houses a morass of fiberoptic cables. To the best of my knowledge, there are no interior photos on the Internet of the space in question. However, one can surmise it's more boring, and perverse, in there than Bill Nye's jack-off fantasies.

Twenty-four by 48 feet, filled with surveillance equipment, used to spy on you. What's more, you're paying for this loss of your privacy!

You pay "taxes," don't you?

Then you're paying government to listen in on your admissions you're secretly gay, and love the smell of nuts that don't come in a Planters can.

You're paying government to gather info on your "political" affiliations, that will be used against you in a hunt that makes the Salem witch trials feel like a toothless blow job.

You're paying government to blackmail you into doing exactly as it says, whenever it demands.

Room 641A: It's here beam splitters were installed on the cables in question. This refraction of light provided two signals. One went to AT&T; the other went to the government - which, again, is AT&T - so it could store your electronic correspondences, and spy on you whenever it wanted.

The whole AT&T being the government thing sounds similar to Christ being God, doesn't it? Creepy, but you've done it to yourself, by selling your soul for obvious bullshit. Some old guy in the sky, in a city where the streets are made of gold?! You think Santa Claus, Zeus and the Easter Bunny are ludicrous, yet somehow profess belief in that shit?!

To paraphrase Jordan Maxwell, get up off your fuckin' knees! Stop being subservient to anyone, and take your autonomy back!

For you technical folk reading along - or anybody salvaging this article from the swirling toilet water being flushed out the commode of the Internet - there's a Narus STA 6400 in Room 641A. Ostensibly, this device is highly effective at capturing and categorizing Web discourse at rapid speed.

Mark Klein - who worked for AT&T - ratted out the monster corporation in 2006.

Of course, government held itself on trial in a class action suit on this one, and guess what?! Government found itself "not guilty," as it had done countless times before, in countless cases.

As such, should you be an AT&T customer, government is now storing every electronic correspondence you've ever made - since 2003 - and can listen to them whenever it chooses.
