Information wants to be NOVEL. And TSCOG habits thwart the connectivity and principles of sharing that the entire Internet and world wide web are based upon.

In 2006 I went to see my local M.P in Stourbridge, UK. After quietly protesting about the lack of debate regarding the Trident missile program (reserved for a select few) and the draconian National Identity Card program, I also left details of a recent white paper (2005) by Douglas Rushkoff (MLA Faculty staff)

"Open Source Democracy: How online communication is changing offline politics.
Foreword by Douglas Alexander, Member of UK Parliament.

I hoped she might read it and reply, or maybe invite me to speak or contribute... in my dreams... she never did, and this was 5 years ago. Another sad story of failed UK democracy, but that's what happened, and is the general experiences of others I have met that visited their M.P and or write to them. Possibly Douglas Alexander could be a sympathetic M.P on this issue though, as he wrote the introduction to 'Open Source Democracy' maybe some of that book has sunk in by now, if he ever read it?

What do Robert Anton Wilson and Internet have in common?

In the new age of web 2.0 hyper-connectivity and Internet Bob has influenced our trajectory in countless ways across a broad spectrum of multicultural terrain. The proof seems to be in the pudding and here I offer to set the table so that the feast can begin. Socio-cybernetics, Hyper-connectivity, Hyper-intelligence, Sharing of RAW data, processed by the likes of Claude Shannon John Von Neumann, Norbert Weiner, Marshal McLuhan

TSCOG: Tsarist Cyber Occupation Government:
The Digital Economy Bill that Ate the global constitution of sharing.

In London at the house of commons (the central point of control and policy making throughout the United Kingdom and environs) some feeble minded individuals are wrestling over a new Bill called the ‘Digital Economy Bill’, a part of DIGITAL BRITAIN business heist.

Many M.P's are trying to pass the new Tsarist like measures that include punishments for the new cybercriminals without debate (like with the Trident Missile program) scrutiny or consultation with anybody but their own gang of paid advisors, economists, bankers, lawyers and military strategists seems a bad idea to these people.

Wars are fought sitting behind screens processing information and data, from the Las Vegas drone aircraft suites to the decentralized headquarters of wikileaks. It's game-on and connectivity is king mob, I think.

A brave few are calling to scrap the bill and draw up another, or none at all. But those voices seem largely ignored and rebuked by claims of defending the musician's, artist's and creative people in Britain. Who at Ofcom can be trusted?

"Live it, love it, lick it, wikileakit"

I say Bollocks to the Digital Economy Bill, if the .Gov want to support creative industries bring the troops home, cut military spending, scrap the trident missile program and develop art, music and craft centres everywhere immediately with that Trillion pound booty.

Oh, and maybe consider an end to the diabolical and failed war on some drugs that would funnel further Billions into the new creative Renaissance in the UK, maybe they could even think of reaching out to Africa and Asia with this extra cash, helping homeless, starving and the disconnected from the around the Global Village, both home and away.
What I feel is misunderstood by many is the fact that now ‘everything’ can be represented in bits, and this bill has implications far far beyond downloading the new Eryka Badu video or Bruckenheimer movie. Although I rate window seat as a stroke of genius. Like wikileaks, just simple, better and honest, compared with the razzle-dazzle of the usual media brainwashing flashing spam.

All INDEPENDENT creative industries and UNDERGROUND artists face a possible ‘cut off’ and annexing from the means to connect. Connectivity is one of the new paradigm definitions of life, religion for example can be defined by the sense of re-connecting. So, it follows sensibly that only the divine guided CYBER TSAR can decide who connects and more importantly who is disconnected in a Tsarist Cyber Occupation Government?

If past this Bill will be like shooting a corpse twice (that represents the UK economy) and then using the blood as lubricant to screw the lifeless body to the tune of 'things can only get better by the old Labour Party friendly pop slags, D:ream'.

How, how did this happen, how did we come to be at the behest of a centralized control system that can dictate our DIGITAL DIET? Well, I have been thinking about this for a while and I have come up with a theory, very loosely based upon a term coined by my teacher Dr. Robert Anton Wilson (TSOG) that stands for Tsarist Occupation Government with a hidden joke... there is NO GOVERNOR, anywhere. My term is (TSCOG) Tsarist Cyber Occupation Government and I am still searching for the hidden joke, maybe the wheels of history will spit some out?
The first music shared down a wire was by a band called THE GRATEFUL DEAD, who are still at the cutting edge of shared music culture and who’s one time lyricist JOHN PERRY BARLOW helped to start the EFF or ELECTRONIC FREEDOM FOUNDATION. Who HAVE NOT BEEN CONSULTED BY THE BRITISH TSCOG about the new DIGITAL ECONOMY BILL: Fatal Digi-E-Con Bill.

"War is over, if you wikileak it"

And we can now see the emergence of new hyperintelligence such as wikileaks out smart and out connect (with hyperconnections) the worlds Trillion Billion funded 'spy agencies' and provide Internet communities with RAW and up-to-date data on some of the most important pressing issues for all humanity.
The psychological warfare unit behind the Digital Economy Bill wants to disconnect. If they take this kind of Big Brother authoritarian attitude and policy they will spawn thousands of wikileaks 'like' enterprises and totally ruin any chance of gaining some 'trust' as a government that operates upon the interests of the people, not their own small group of private agenda's concerning some intelligence that 'we the people' are not qualified to handle.

The People's Intelligence Agency.

Wikileaks operates like the peoples intelligence agency, and talks like one, and FEEDSBACK like one, meanwhile the 'Intelligence Companies' that claim to be protecting the National Security enterprise, and corporate capitalist interests both home and away behave like a rogue terrorist cell, unable to exercise suspended judgement and detailed analysis and feedback, like a gang of criminals plotting their next robbery, the worlds intelligence spooks have been beaten, battered and swept into a corner by the new Magister Ludi of the Spy Game: Julian Assange. (I like him, as he reminds me of somebody Hagbard Celine might invite aboard his submarine to raise a toast to FUCKUP. Hapy Easter Motherfuckers.

“That’s arguably what spy agencies do — high-tech investigative journalism," Julian Assange, one of the site’s founders, said in an interview on Tuesday. “It’s time that the media upgraded its capabilities along those lines.”
