POWER AND CONTROL THE END OF FREEDOM
The Manhattan Project which developed the first atomic bomb started
in 1942. The first atomic bomb was exploded on July 16, 1945 more
than 50 years ago. That project started with a $6,000 funding
appropriation to the Uranium Committee and ended, by 1945, at $1.7
billion ($20 billion today). The total cost of the United States
nuclear weapons program since the Manhattan Project has been $4
trillion 80% of the entire national debt on the government books in
Is HAARP another program about to plunge the world into a
rash of waste and human misery?
The War Against Democracy
"The buzzwords haunting the Pentagon today are 'revolution in
military affairs', The idea, simply put, is that the same
technologies that have transformed the American workplace may have
no less profound an effect on the American way of war. "346
This concept, "revolution in military affairs" (RMA), first emerged
in a document issued by the U.S. Army War College in July, 1994 - The
Revolution in Military Affairs.347
This document said a philosophy
of "conflict short of war" ("terrorism, insurgency or violence
associated with narco trafficking") requires new weapons and a change
in public opinion. It asserts that this change in opinion does not
have to evolve naturally, but can be deliberately shaped by the
government. The idea is that belief systems of Americans can be
slowly altered to allow the military to introduce new weapons
technology which, at this time, would be resisted by most Americans.
What this book puts forward is:
"In its purest sense, revolution brings change that is permanent,
fundamental, and rapid. The basic premise of the revolution in
military affairs (RMA) is simple: throughout history, warfare
usually developed in an evolutionary fashion, but occasionally ideas
and inventions combined to propel dramatic and decisive change. This
not only affected the application of military force, but often
altered the geopolitical balance in favor of those who mastered the
new form of warfare."
The Revolution in Military Affairs
describes "people's wars", which it limits to Marxist ideologies.
The phrase could be equally applied to what occurred in the
Philippines and to Eastern Europe's popular revolutions in the late

military's writers say that there is a shift to "spiritual" and
"commercial" insurgencies, which they do not define well. They imply
that these kinds of "insurgencies" represent national security risks
to be defended against. This may be the case but, who will decide
what is "spiritually" or "commercially" correct?
The military's authors discuss emerging technologies which may go
against Americans' beliefs in such things as the presumption of
innocence, the right to disagree with the government, and the right
to free expression and movement throughout the world.
At one point
in the document they discuss the need to use new technology to keep
track of Americans traveling out of the United States:
"While advances in robotics and information technologies may make it
possible to perform many commercial activities with fewer employees
in dangerous regions, those Americans who are overseas will be more
isolated and dispersed. This complicates the main problems of NEOs
(noncombatant evacuation operations): identification and
notification of the individuals to be evacuated, identification of
safe routes, and assessment of threats to the evacuation.
could diminish these problems. In the near future every American at
risk could be equipped with an electronic individual position
locator device (IPLD). The device, derived from the electronic
bracelet used to control some criminal offenders or parolees, would
continuously inform a central data bank of the individuals'
locations. Eventually such a device could be permanently implanted
under the skin, with automatic remote activation either upon
departure from the U.S. territory (while passing through the
security screening system at the airport, for example) or by
transmission of a NEO alert code to areas of conflict.
would help preclude removal of the device (although, of course, some
terrorists might be willing to remove a portion of the hostage's
body if they knew where the device was implanted). The IPLD could
also act as a form of IFFN (identification friend, foe or neutral)
if U.S. military personnel were equipped with appropriate
The most likely people to receive the implants are military
personnel who will be told that this will help rescue them if they
are captured. They may be the first, setting the stage for the rest
of the country. Will our military personnel object? Will our
defenders recognize that this is an invasion by our government into
the rights guaranteed by our Constitution - a Constitution they have
sworn to defend?
Another technology mentioned is a method for interfering with
activities the government judges to be wrong. In the examples given,
most of us would agree intervention should take place at some level.
However, the methods contemplated are extreme. Will those with the
power to invade the privacy of individuals do so and without just
cause? Will the holders of the power be trusted by the rest of the
population? The military planners anticipate a resounding - "NO"!
Therefore, they propose a series of events to shift the popular
view to the opposite extreme.
They propose a revolution of society
which will allow for a Revolution in Military Affairs. At this
point, they lay out a fictional scenario where the illusion of the
need for this
kind of control could be created. In the scenario, a plan to
desensitize the population to increasing control and, introduction
of the new technology, through systematic manipulation and
disinformation by the government is initiated. What they have put
forward might even be underway.
E-Systems developed Global Positioning System (GPS)348 technologies
(satellite based) which can locate objects anywhere in the world
within one foot of the object's actual location. They also developed
systems for law enforcement which can intercept faxed messages,
telephone calls, modem transfers, and video transmissions on a
single system. They developed the EMASS computers which are powerful
enough to sort the volumes of information needed for tracking
billions of people. They were the owners of HAARP, under their
controlling company, Raytheon.
Under their nonfiction scenario the military's writers say:
"For example, remote intrusive monitoring of the financial computer
networks of offshore banks could identify the deposits associated
with money laundering. If desired, such accounts could be
In another section, the document emphasizes behavior and attitude
alteration. This is the very heart of an RMA.
"Greatly improved intelligence gathering and fusion is a primary
component of the RMA, and proposed information warfare capabilities
might be ideally suited for helping develop desired emotions,
attitudes, or behavior."
The entire text of this little book will leave readers wondering - If
this is the kind of material the military is letting out for public
review, what are they hiding in those billion dollar "black
In another section The Revolution in Military Affairs
discusses the reality of the RMA:
"Even with all the constraints and countermeasures, there is some
value in applying emerging technology using existing strategy,
doctrine, organization, force structure, objectives, concepts,
attitudes and norms. But there is another alternative: we could
deliberately engineer a comprehensive revolution, seeking utter
transformation rather than simply an expeditious use of new
technology. However alluring, such a program is rife with hidden
dangers and unintended consequences. Unlike the Manhattan Project,
we are not forced to pursue revolution without considering the
implications. In conflict short of war, RMA is a Pandora's box
desperately in need of careful scrutiny before opening".
The National Review article quoted earlier in this chapter says that
this box has already been opened and that the concept of an RMA is
already occupying the best minds in the Pentagon. (The Revolution in
Military Affairs, has been reprinted and is available - see Resource
Guide at the end of this book for ordering information.)

The Cold War is not over, but has changed. We know that there are
concerns which, being a free people, we must address and bring to
the attention of others. We believe that the greatest threat to
freedom is an over-oppressive and increasingly secretive government.
To many, the government has shifted from one,
"of the people, by the
people and for the people" to a government "of special interests,
for their own benefit, at the people's expense".
What went wrong,
and where it went wrong, to a large extent, is a product of the
intelligence bureaucracies which thrive through one administration
to the next with unrestrained growth. These secretive bureaucracies
hide more and more of their secrets under a cloak of "national
security", while drifting further from the principles which have
allowed the United States to exist for over two hundred years.
Secret government policy is not sanctioned by the free will of the
population, and threatens the core beliefs of liberty, honest
government and public responsibility.
The only truly free people are those who live in an open society, a
society which cherishes above all the right of men and women to
control and set the values that their government should reflect.
These are the popularly set values which must be pressed into the
philosophy of all projects, policies and programs our governments
seek to project into reality.
No program should be permitted to grow
out of democratic governments which does not reflect the values and
will of those governed. There have been too many Watergates, Irangates, and political wars which have only served politicians and
protected corporate America. Our military and economic policies are
increasingly empty of the values upon which our democratic forms of
When we look at HAARP documents, we see that the military, the
contractors and the University of Alaska all appear to have
deliberately misled the public and elected officials.
In other projects - tike proposed nuclear excavation discussed
earlier - it was the biologists at the University who objected. In
the HAARP project, the environmental, biological and life sciences
are again not explored enough. Given its potential impacts, the
project should be subjected to continuous rigorous independent
review by specialists in the life sciences and atmospheric science.
Those deriving their incomes and future positions from HAARP-type
projects should not be called upon to be the guardians of the
interests of the rest of the world. It is impossible for these
geophysicists to have had all of the training required to assess all
of the risks. This is not to say that Institute scientists are
reckless in their approach, but are they fully aware of the
potential environmental and health risks?
Is HAARP the beginning of the "Brave New World"?
It is time to think
about a change in the way we allow our government to evolve - into
oppressor rather than servant. Our system of democracy was set up to
serve and enhance life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Are
these dead concepts?
We think not, it is time to rise from the ashes
of our apathy and take a step to improve our world.
