MP3 of Today’s Surveillance-Bashing Interview Now Online

The interview with Brian Wilson is now online here.   You can listen there or download an MP3. (It is the second interview on the left).

Homeland Security took a thrashing.  What a bunch of hooligans!

And who was that government apologist who called up and urged everybody not to worry???

    Another fine public flogging of the Homeland insecurity Dept. . What continues to amaze me is how inured to the idea of government obesity the public is and how nobody seems to mention the sheer idiocy at work. There is a kind of Terry Gilliam / Monty Python quality to this massive accumulation of data on the daily lives of the
    citizen. If we were Chinese, this kind of Bureaucratic Leviathan might somehow work but this is the Good old USA, land of the bored, home of the short attentioned.

    The sheer volume of weirdness that will attend this lunacy would shock even Kafka.

    Dirk – thanks for listening and thanks for the feedback.

    I think Kafka would have had a kick out of current events, though I think people today are more likely to grasp roach jokes from Cheech ‘n’ Chong than from Czech writers.

    Not to mention jokes about Tijuana.
