Bloggers Against Big Brother

The blogosphere lit up early this week in reaction to the New York Times article about the NYPD's unlawful surveillance of peace groups during the Republican National Convention. The Times neatly summarizes a few, and here a few more:

Our friends at the Working Assets blog Working for Change wrote on the impact of the progressive community.

Freelancer Lindsay Beyerstein has a first-hand account of the NYPD's treatment of protestors when she participated in a Billionaires for Bush stunt.

The Albany Project addresses the New York Post's comparison of peaceful protestors to Al-Qaeda.

Carpetbagger on the NYPD's reasons for sealing documents.

we all speak of freedom but what is it and what value is in it.the world has been incorperated by a telepathic interty that throwes quistions to be judged by us why. even th value of annaliseing thought can't be more valuable thangrowing up in caose can it . Is the fight for surpremesy over all asain cultures due to the bullshit of emmortals or even surperier or so called family dna that surposeable gone back who nows how many years be the right way of uniting the medall class and below.even the miss enformation and conquiring effects it hase on all asian and middle east societies so the west can submet them into submeshen to buy there companies and distoret there history to bring them around to our culture of 1000 years since england invaded.Unfortunitally the end result of any power surounding us is to demoralise the free thinkers and inventors of new thought.inturn thay will be breed out leaving only the free thinkers who see what is good for society and not abstract or radical ideas that could inlarge possiblities of the human race.I believe that such valuable assets that create us into more than is seen is unmeassurable. the only oppesition to this is because of the domenation of the computer that places us in so called society can bread such people for the future when the inercore that runs the computer become tamed by there creation wtch is only a matter of time.
