Autonomous Next Generation Leaks


> shut the fuck up

Unacceptable... this complicit architechting of immorality...
preserving the thieving means, murderous lives, and lying
facades of those pouring hostile architecture from articulated
tentacles of concrete pumpers, the structures of secret and
dishonest malactors, the puppetmasters safehouses, topped
with feedhorns for amplifying their own wet dreams.

> Tell what you know
> unfettered revelation, "dumping" and
> failing to abide the rules of rigging.

Much better... this weathering acid rain against the lime.
Distributed anonymous tech offers additional options.
Dump all, for all to see, and for none to takedown or filter.
No redaction, but to preserve self for more action or escape.
No gatekept interpreters, no contracted terms,
no filtered pump and dumps, no clawbacks permitted.
An unfound autonomous mole, if tis your delight, yet always
prepared ahead for instant escape, a last deadman script ensuring
redundant release of the Family Jewels liberated from their
concrete and copper Presidios lit at night by sparkly fiber optic trees.
The delivery girl, janitor, Lady of the Night, secretary, maintenance
crew, executive director, computer nerd, brilliant analyst, or researcher...
all can be equally effective in such operations. Perhaps data even
distributed by speech in Central or Gorky Park, or the sprinkling of many
Gigabytes on many USB's around the next cryptocurrency meetup,
a distributed filestore retrieval hash sent via shitexpress.com
message field to the haters for lols, whatever is interesting,
leaving behind a whirlwind in the dust of your coattails.
Take time, be safe from capture, survive... if that is of import.
Is the point of leaking not impact toward whatever change
may come... don't hold back, cut deep and let the cards fall.

Edward Who? The Snowden Affair Ends with a Whimper
By Bill Blunden On May 31, 2019

    â??Do not send to those who tout secure drops, Tor, crypto-comms â??
these are traceable, diagrammable via basic net transmission tech.â??


Itâ??s been more than six years since Edward Snowden went public. After
all the breathless headlines, Hollywood movies, book deals, Pulitzer
prizes, and glossy primetime biopics. What, pray tell, has come of it?
For the average American â?? bupkis. In fact, mass surveillance is
actually growing by leaps and bounds. Such that those who wish to
salvage the remnants of their individual privacy will be forced to
make some tough choices in the years ahead.

Ed Snowden, holed up in Russia, has faded into history. At the
forefront of the Snowden disclosures, the news outlet known as The
Intercept has officially shuttered its archives. They made their
moulah and moved on. And what of the considerable streak of
confidential sources whoâ??ve been thrown in the pokey? The editors
arenâ??t talking much about how that happened. In fact they seem more
interested in selling people email servers in a box. Hey, is this web
page supposed to be an advertisement or an article? In the era of
social media it can be hard to tell the difference.

History offers a glimpse behind the curtain. During the early days of
the Cold War it was common practice for the political leaders in the
Soviet Union to purge the KGB every so often. Because over time
Russian spymasters accrued enough political dirt and power that they
threatened to take over. With the ascendance of Vladimir Putin one
might argue that the rebranded KGB finally succeeded.

In a similar manner, American intelligence escaped the Snowden
revelations largely unscathed. That, dear reader, ought to tell you
something. Sure there was lots of grandstanding and feigned outrage.
Sure CEOs made bold statements of renunciation (ahem, after being
caught in bed with spies). Keeping the kayfabe alive, as Jesse Ventura
might say. Rest assured, claims Apple CEO Tim Cook, your iPhone would
never ever spy on you. Yeah, and the relationship between Silicon
Valley and government spies is completely adversarial, they canâ??t
stand each other. Just like the blood feud Andre the Giant and Hulk
Hogan back in the late 1980s. Uh-huh, just like that. A total
farce which the media enables because thatâ??s what theyâ??re paid to do.

But ultimately what matters is concrete institutional change. And
thereâ??s been zero of that, as in nada. Because genuine privacy
threatens advertising revenue, quarterly returns, and spy power. And
the elites want to keep the money train chugging along. Perhaps it no
surprise then that the legislative response to Snowden was so watered
down that one former spy chief publicly lampooned it. Letâ??s hear three
cheers for state capture.

You can almost hear Otis Pike weeping in his grave.

Most advocates prefer to end their op-eds on a hopeful note. But
sometimes hope is just a lightweight form of denial. The kind of
â??hopeâ?? that keeps Silicon Valley in business. Though itâ??s painful to
concede, the spies at Fort Meade hit the nail on the head: weâ??re
mostly zombies who pay for our own surveillance. Please go back and
re-read the previous sentence. Short of a massive political upheaval
things arenâ??t going to change. Which means that, for the immediate
future, the really big changes will have to take place on a personal

And so we arrive at the â??tough choicesâ?? mentioned at the beginning.
Members of the establishment often whine about discussing tradecraft
because they believe that doing so might aid and abet terrorists. But
the truth is that the channel of useful information is actually
flowing in the opposite direction. From wanted fugitives to the

The kernel of an approach can be found out in the field. Where poor
security is fatal. Hunted by the worldâ??s most formidable military, the
head of ISIS is still alive thanks to solid operations security, also
known as OPSEC. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is definitely a leader who
appreciates OPSEC. According to the New York Times, â??he eschews all
electronic devices, which could identify his location, and probably
communicates through a series of couriers.â?? The key to staying
vertical, then, is the process surrounding the couriers. How theyâ??re
compartmented, screened, and arranged to create a resilient
communication network. No doubt al-Baghdadi is aware that a flawed
courier scheme was a significant factor in the downfall of Osama bin

Edward Snowden likes to promote strong cryptography. Leaving people
with the notion that staying under the radar is a matter of leveraging
a technical quick fix. But recent history shows that trusting your
life to an allegedly secure communication platform is an act of faith.
And not an advisable one, especially when state sponsored operators
enter the picture. Achieving higher levels of security requires a
disciplined process which is anything but a quick fix and which often
entails giving up technology. Even cartel bosses learn this lesson:
security technology fails. Both my design and by accident. Spies win
either way.
