Outsider Theory
Romancing the Deep State; or, Dan Brown, Part 1 (Origins) with Pseud Dionysius MPH

Dan Brown is one of the best selling authors of all time; just fifteen years ago, "The Da Vinci Code" was a ubiquitous document of global popular culture. Yet Brown, now immensely wealthy from his novelistic success, is oddly neglected today. Pseud Dionysius MPH returns to the show to investigate the unlikely rise of Brown, his protagonist, Harvard Professor Robert Langdon, and the fictional discipline of "symbology" out of the demise of the cold war techno-thriller and the new threats of the information age. We explore Brown's two lesser known pre-Langdon novels, Digital Fortress and Deception Point, which despite being "bad" by most standards, are surprisingly prescient works that anticipate everything from Wikileaks to privatized space travel. We consider Brown's personal origins as a failson of the New England WASP elite who ultimately cashed in on his insider status as a popularizing mythologist of American power. His two early novels, we argue, clue us into the concerns underlying all of his fiction: the transformation of the "Cathedral" institutions of elite education and the Deep State in response to the post-Cold War dispensation of globalized and digitalized capitalism and feminized labor and the emergent risks of information warfare, extremism, and terrorism. This is the first in a multi-part series that will examine the arc of Dan Brown's career and its implications.

America's Obsession with Illusion Richard Gale and Gary Null PhD Progressive Radio Network, January 14, 2022 “He who despises his own life is soon master of others” – English proverb For the vast majority of Americans, the past year has been the most challenging in their lives – certainly for young adults. However, not everyone has been suffering equally. The nation's health or illness is not uniform. Much of our suffering is dependent upon the institutionalization and negligence of previous injustices, the loss of social equanimity, economic heedlessness, and our leaders' unmitigated greed and pursuit of power. Nor is everyone adversely affected by the shifts underway in the imaginations of the political and ideological universes. The transnational class of corporate and banking elites, for example, has little motivation to respect or contribute to national boundaries and interests. They perceive themselves as global actors. For the generals and captains of neoliberal globalization, the puppet masters of financial markets, the Covid-19 pandemic only caused annoying disruptions in the quality of their lives. For the remainder, it has been cataclysmic. As we begin 2022 should we not pause and reflect carefully about what we want and don't want as individuals and a nation to secure a sustainable future? A deep and collective introspection into the shared moral principles is called for. It is no longer what we say or profess that has any truth or significance. Rather what we actualize in our daily lives and as a society is going to determine whether the future will be better future or worse. Only our actions can realistically convey the deeper values in the American psyche. Therefore we need to ask ourselves more difficult questions to discover the real moral poverty that defines us as a civilization. Where were the large demonstrations against the trillion-dollar bailout of Wall Street and foreign banks when barely a penny was spent for the average citizen? Where were the demonstrations against home foreclosures and the loss of small family farms?  Debt drenched student aid? Exploitive payday loans and exorbitant credit card fees? There was no outrage against Obama's broken promises on universal healthcare, a platform that helped bring him to the White House. The single-minded attention on the pandemic has cancelled out 2.5 million homeless American children and 46 million adults and children who go hungry daily. Where was a collective voice condemning the hundreds of billion tax dollars to increase the power of the military and intelligence complexes as American cities further collapsed into ghettos? Where were the marches against corporations off-shoring jobs? Why no vocal outrage against the invasions of Libya and Syria, or the US' ongoing support of rogue dictatorships, such as Saudi Arabia and the UAE for crimes against humanity in Yemen? Where are the protests against corporations exploiting slave labor in poor countries such as Bangladesh and Indonesia?  There were no noteworthy protests for any of these issues. And yet these are true existential threats to our very democracy. Bertrand Russell wrote, “one should care about the world they do not see.” Should we not be planning ahead for the future of our children, grandchildren and ourselves instead of being incapacitated by fear? The national popular disinterest in these and other crises foreshadows something on the horizon that does not bode well for most Americans. It is a simple principle to understand; yet so subtle it will likely go unnoticed until everyone is individually and collectively affected. It is the utter lack of balance within the nation's body politick, and across the media that spoon feeds us virtual images of a faux theatrical play, the illusory icons on our minds' monitor screens, that shape our perceptions of reality. This is how control is exerted over our thoughts, speech and actions. In fact, it is only after people exercise their thoughts independently, with the certain belief that they have actual self-control over their lives, that they can arrive at the realization that their perceptions may be largely distorted. Throughout America's history there has been a system of three federal branches to assure there is a platform for checks and balances as well as a structure to contain the tensions between them. That system now is being rapidly challenged and eroded. Now the middle of the road Democrats officially control the White House and both legislative bodies. We will see what awaits us. There is also what is commonly referred to as the “fourth estate,” the powers of the press and news media that control the framing of the political narrative and partisan issues. In the past, the media was expected to hold the government accountable by exposing its conflicts of interest that endanger the public, its misdemeanors, and systemic corruption. This too is in decay as the media has been fully captured by corporate interests and now aligns itself politically and ideologically with the new political elite determined to reshape democracy and launch a new reset that will dramatically infringe on individual rights and liberties. Finally, there is the growing influence of a fourth branch of government, the corpocracy and its private interests. We might also include the US intelligence community that increasingly operates independently from executive and legislative oversight. Together we can witness this loose cabal of seemingly independent entities, working simultaneously in consortium and in opposition to each other, propelling us towards a future tsunami of greater polarization and immense social disruption. Earlier generations were not threatened by the telecommunication and technological giants, such as Google, Facebook and Amazon. Clinton's Communications Decency Act of 1996, despite its well-meaning intentions to protect free speech, was otherwise destructively naïve. At that time it was sensible; however, that was before the advent of the social media that now dominates our lives and shapes political discourse. Silicon Valley has become a force far more powerful than the lobbyists on K Street to ensure that corporate Democrats are raised to a position of absolute power. Yet the problem would be equally threatening if it were the corporate and radicalized GOP in power. The centrist Democratic left, lulled in a passivity that “it can't happen here,” is every bit as dangerous and delusional as the Republican far-right's paranoia over conspiracies squatting behind every nook and cranny. A moderate centrist right no longer exists as it has now exited reality like a herd of lemmings to follow Trump phenomena over a phantasmagoric cliff. The more important question to contemplate is how this will impact yourself and average citizens. What happens elsewhere around the world can no longer be viewed in isolation. Globalization is perhaps the most holistic phenomena within the matrix of financial capital movements and post-modern social restructuring. China has the means to socially control most of its population, especially in urban areas. On the other hand, China would be unable to succeed in this endeavor without the direct assistance, trade and technological development of Silicon Valley and the private innovators of intelligence and surveillance applied science. China has already launched social scoring, a nefarious means to reward and penalize public activity. If a person protests the lack of personal freedom, democratic values and free speech, his or her social score decreases. And through digital networks, authorities can monitor and identify every Chinese citizen's movements. All of this technology is ready for launch in the US and other developed nations. However, rather than social scoring, it is block chain, the digital database that gathers any information it is programmed for. Block chain has already been employed for almost a decade. At this moment the federal government and individual states are blindly over-reacting to Covid's health threats, the climate and environment, and the collapse of social cohesion. These threats are eliciting government mandates, such as vaccination. A Biden federal vaccine mandate would overrule individual state laws. The fact that this is being publicly stated should quell many conspiratorial theories. It is part of a more comprehensive and long-term agenda for expanding government social control under the pretense and propaganda of keeping Americans safe under the banner of national security. New laws are under construction that would redefine hate speech. Censorship of free speech for criticizing official narratives and policies to tackle the pandemic are being enforced. Any criticism towards the failures of the Covid-19 vaccines is redefined as threats to public health. People raising such critiques may eventually find their names on domestic terrorist lists. This scenario is not beyond the imagination. Wikileaks revealed that environmental, animal protection, and human rights groups have been labeled as domestic terrorist organizations. Guilt by association laws, for example buried in Obama's National Defense Authorization Act, are in place. Expanding a law's scope is far easier than erasing it from the books. Consequently, it is not unlikely that these laws may eventually widen to include charges of subversion based solely on the emails you read, the videos you watch or the broadcasts you listen to. This would inevitably lead to the death toll for any residue of integrity in journalism. Silicon Valley's collusion with the government has canceled the voices of some of our best investigative journalists, such as Chris Hedges, Sharyl Attkinsson, Glenn Greenwald, Max Blumenthal and Craig Murray. These are only a few of many examples. The new unstated law is that original investigation must support the official narrative, otherwise it will be prohibited from accessible public view. We may recall that under the second Bush administration, the justice department created “free speech zones,” fenced off or confined areas where demonstrators were only permitted to exercise their Constitutional rights of free protest and expression. Today we are only several small amendments away before the right to assemble being banned altogether. Faced with growing condemnation by many nations, the US' hegemony on the world geopolitical arena has waned considerably. Biden's administration and its return to neocon foreign against Russia and China and neoliberal market policies will likely make every effort to regain the dominance it lost during the past four years. What has vanished in the US' former full spectrum dominance over the geopolitical landscape is now being inverted to strengthen federal hegemonic reign over the American population. Finally, we need to awaken to modern technologies' remarkable sophistication and its certain threats to the health of our societies, and even to our definition of being human. Sadly, this is an industry each of us has been complicit in advancing. Coining a term by one of the planet's most important and forgotten 20th century prophetic voices, the Trappist monk Father Thomas Merton, we are facing a great Unspeakable, a spiritual crisis contributing to the existential vacuity of modern American culture. Few are aware that in his 1964 collection of meditations, Seeds of Destruction, Merton predicted that the civil rights movement would confront a catastrophic impasse and may find itself without leadership. Four years later, Martin Luther King Jr, who Merton had a deep correspondence with, was assassinated. Merton would die suddenly later that same year under very mysterious circumstances in Thailand. Another way to describe the Unspeakable is criminal Sovereignty, with a capital S, to convey its almost numinous qualities. If alive today, Merton would look upon both the extreme right and left as mere expressions of the meaninglessness of American life manifesting as a turbulent ocean of afflictive emotions and thoughts. Instead of technology serving the needs of humanity, Americans are being increasingly conditioned to willingly bow as slaves to technology. The public, Somerset Maugham warned, “are easily disillusioned then they are angry or it was the illusion they loved.” The Unspeakable's unspoken mantra is: technology must progress regardless of how many people fall destitute, jobless, debt ridden and physically ill with only suicide as a recourse to escape. “American democracy today,” Merton observed over 55 years ago, “is just cheap pressed wood fiber, cardboard and spray paint.” Consequently, the elite sitting in the global control tower view the Great Reset's technological regime as preferable to democracy's kabuki theater. Advanced surveillance, artificial intelligence, intelligent robotics, transhumanism, a 5G internet of everything, genetic engineering, and weather modification should be our guiding avatars. The solutions, he would argue, can no longer be found in civil discourse or the rights of human beings gathering in assembly. For the ruling elite, the masses are blind sheep wandering in search of a shepherd. This is what author Ronald Wright called the “progress trap” – progress' unending efforts to feed technology's hunger to devour natural and human capital, interest free. And the mainstream press and news media, in its' malady of cognitive dissonance, serves as its unreflective cheerleader for our march towards civilizational collapse. Merton was keenly aware of technology's dangers to social stability. In a 1967 letter he took aim at the “universal myth that technology infallibly makes everything in every way better for everybody. It does not.” However, Merton was by no means a Luddite. “Technology could indeed make a better world for millions of human beings,” he wrote. Yet there remained the nightmare of technology transforming the world into a “more collectivist, cybernated mass culture.” Decades before the first desktop, Merton foresaw a complete fragmentation of the nation's moral and spiritual fabric when people will begin basing all of their political and ethical decisions on computers. Prophetically he wrote to a friend, “just wait until they start philosophizing with computers!” That was 1967. He even foresaw technology becoming a means to elevate the slaves of technology's false self, to satisfy narcissistic appetites for admiration and status. In other words, the woke social media. “The greatest need of our time,” Merton wrote in his Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander, “is to clean out the enormous mass of mental and emotional rubbish that clutters our minds and makes all political and social life a mass illness. Without this housecleaning we cannot begin to see. Unless we see we cannot think. The purification must begin with the mass media.” For this reason we urgently need to penetrate the illusions of propaganda and popular falsehoods, across the entire political spectrum as well the self-appointed pontificating Pharisees who are ushering a new socio-economic era where endless technological innovation has precedence over human lives. Despite its newness, it has also been clearly predictable. No doubt, if Orwell were penning his great novel today, the emergence of this new American era we are witnessing would not be fiction.

There has been a lot of tension between Hungary and the EU in 2021, and it doesn't seem to be calming down as the year comes to an end.The latest debate is closely linked to the principle of EU law primacy. All EU member states are subject to it. It stipulates that EU law is considered superior to domestic law within a member country. So in the case of a conflict, EU law should prevail and the country wouldn't be able to apply any law which goes against European directives.Are we saying that Hungary doesn't accept European law taking priority over its own laws then?

Well such services are all part of a system known as the gig economy or collaborative economy.Just like performers who are paid on a per gig basis, workers are increasingly being paid task by task. It's a direct consequence of the rise of the digital world, in particular that of smartphone apps. You could call it the Uberisation of the world of work.Let me guess; that comes from Uber drivers, does it? Why would companies want to do that? Could that change any time soon?

What is a Christmas tree?“O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum, How faithfully you blossom!” is the English translation of lyrics to a traditional folk song written by German composer Ernst Anschütz in 1824. A Tannenbaum is actually a fir tree, and Anschutz likely had no idea his song would be associated with Christmas trees and go on to become one of the most popular carols out there. Fast forward to 2021, Christmas trees and their lovely branches are becoming more controversial. An unconventional tree in New Jersey's Asbury Park has been the talk of the town of the last few weeks. Normally, the historic boardwalk is decorated with a fresh-cut natural Christmas tree. But this year, in its place is a piece of art made of cardboard that also incorporates elements of the seashore, urban architecture and the city's musical heritage. It's also designed to be recycled after it is dismantled. The Christmas tree sculpture has received both praise and criticism.But how did putting up a Christmas tree become a tradition? But what happens to all these trees after the holidays? Can you imagine Christmas without a tree?

What is Wikileaks? On December 10th, a UK court ruled that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange could be extradited to the United States. The Australian is currently being held on remand in Belmarsh Prison for breaching the terms of his bail, but he also faces long-standing espionnage charges from the US.Those relate to the publication of secret documents on US army activity in Afghanistan, over a decade ago. That would lead to the former hacker being labelled as the US' public enemy number one by some observers.When was Wikileaks actually created? How did the video come to light? Did Wikileaks continue to publish during that time?

This conversation was held Live on the day of the court ruling in the UK against Julian Assange, founder and publisher of WikiLeaks. The British Court of Appeal ruled that Assange could be extradited to the US to face charges under the Espionage Act of 1917. The WikiLeaks website came to international attention in 2010 when it published a series of documents and films provided by U.S. Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning. These leaks included the Baghdad airstrike Collateral Murder video and the Afghanistan war logs. All with evidence of war crimes. Six years later WikiLeaks published the Democratic National Committee email leaks which showed attempts to denigrate the Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign and promote the candidacy of Hillary Clinton. Julian Assange was blamed for having helped Trump win the election. However the Trump administration, with Attorney General William Barr, showed no gratitude for Assange's alleged support. On May 23, 2019, they charged him with violating the Espionage Act of 1917 and raised the bar for him to 175 years in prison and demanded his extradition from the UK. Ironically the current Biden administration fully endorses the Donald Trump charges. Among the voices who condemn the granting of the extradition request are fellow journalists, publishers and defenders of free speech and whistle blowers. However among those who get their information from commercial media prejudice and bias towards Julian Assange clouds the issue. They call him a hacker, one who damaged the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and a rapist. Allegations that even clouded the view of todays guest, UN Special Rapporteur on Torture Nils Melzer. What follows is an in depth exploration of the prejudice against Assange - who so urgently needs support - and where it is based on lies and illegal court proceedings. On these matters at this time nobody is more qualified than UN Special Rapporteur on Torture and professor of international law at the University of Glasgow., Nils Melzer. Katie Halper and Matt Taibbi spoke to him on Decekbeer10,2021. Matt Taibbi is an American author, journalist, and podcaster. He has reported on finance, media, politics, and sports. He is a contributing editor for Rolling Stone, and co-host, with Katie Halper, of Useful Idiots. Katie Halper is a comedian, writer, filmmaker, podcaster, and political commentator.

All the cyber litigation that didn't get filed, or decided, over Thanksgiving finally hit the fan last week, and we're still cleaning up. But first, I have to ask Dave Aitel for a sanity check on Log4Shell. Does it really deserve a 10 out of 10 for impact? And what does it mean for all the open source components buried in all our enterprise software? Dave's only piece of good news is that some big projects were far enough behind in updates that they hadn't built the flaw into their products. In the first of several cyber lawsuits covered in this episode, Jamil Jaffer and I praise Google for a particularly comprehensive and creative approach to suing cybercriminals. RICO plus a boatload of computer privacy violations are at the heart of Google's complaint against two criminals behind the Glupteba botnet. We note that the defendants deserve credit for their own creativity in using the blockchain to reconstitute their C2 infrastructure. If more criminals did that, Microsoft's trademark approach—using trademark violations to seize botnet infrastructure—would be less effective. We note that this week Microsoft used litigation to take down a Chinese government network. Is it wrong to complain that Microsoft has been using this approach for long enough that botnets are only inconvenienced, not destroyed, by the tactic? Maury Shenk digs into the remarkable report that Apple CEO Tim Cook promised $275 billion of investment to China. Five years ago. And we're only finding out about it now. In secret. When Congress finally gets around to the cyber incident reporting bill that it bumped from the defense authorization act, maybe it will want to classify multibillion dollar deals with China as the kind of cyber incident that ought to be reported to anyone on the receiving end of corporate lobbying campaigns. The Tenth Circuit finished its Thanksgiving by releasing a massive opinion upholding the constitutionality of Section 702 of FISA. Jamil Jaffer, who played a key role in the adoption of Section 702 walks us through the decision. The decision was 2-1, but not on the main ruling. Instead, the debate was over Article III and the “advisory” nature of FISA court opinions reviewing executive procedures under that section. I confess to some sympathy for the dissent but wonder how it would help the defendant to strike down that procedure. Dave explains why Tor might not be as secure as we think. A mysterious and likely state sponsored actor is running hundreds of malicious Tor relays. And to add insult to injury, the actor is openly lobbying against measures to cut down on malicious Tor relays.  But wait, there's more cyber litigation, and again Jamil talks us through it. A Saudi women's rights activist has brought a Computer Fraud and Abuse Act lawsuit against DarkMatter and its expat American employees for an iPhone hack that she says got her arrested. I'm a little skeptical that the lawsuit will survive a Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act motion. Maury and I question the wisdom of a recent Italian fine penalizing Amazon over a billion euros, mainly for preferencing sellers who sign up for Prime logistics support. Dave tells the sad story of Ilya Sachkov, a Russian cybersecurity whiz kid and CEO who may have believed too much that everyone sees cybersecurity as a white hat enterprise. Word is that he may have been too helpful in unraveling the DNC attackers identities in 2016 and is now paying for it with a Russian treason charge. Maury notes that the U.S. decision to blacklist the Chinese artificial intellgience company SenseTime was carefully timed to guarantee disruption of SenseTime's IPO. Whether the U.S. action will be more than a delaying tactic remains to be seen, but Maury is skeptical.  Maury notes that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has lost an important battle as he fights extradition to the U.S.. Jamil notes that the cyber incident reporting bill didn't make it into the defense authorization act, as mentioned earlier. He is one of the few cybersecurity buffs who isn't especially disappointed. Maury and I disagree about a much-ballyhooed group of companies claiming to combat artificial intelligence bias in hiring. I'll believe it when they actually expose their recommendations to public scrutiny.   For those who think bias in content moderation is not a thing, try spending ten minutes with this right-wing French candidate's very effective campaign ad. Then ask yourself why exactly YouTube thought it wasn't fit for children. My guess is that it was the ad's effectiveness that YouTube really disapproved of. Dave and I puzzle over the Biden administration's unsatisfying “Initiative for Democratic Renewal”—a big international get-together that got only cursory attention in the U.S., perhaps because its theme is still a little hard to find. And, finally, just to give me an excuse to publicize my latest Cybertoonz comic, Jamil asks for Western militaries what it means to “impose a cost” on ransomware gangs.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul is imposing a statewide indoor mask mandate with up to $1,000 fine for each violation. Surely this time the almighty mask mandate will deliver salvation to the state of New York and not just be an unnecessary burden on its citizens. The US won its appeal to extradite Wikileaks founder Julian Assange from the UK. When will the media call out the abuse of the most important journalistic figure of the modern era? Based on the way they've handled it thus far, the answer is probably never. We're joined in-studio by Arielle Scarcella, commentator and host of the “Arielle Scarcella” YouTube channel.
