"With the rise of the industrial revolution and the
incalculability of the job, at least four kinds on unemployment became chronic
phenomena in all nations addicted to the machine." - Stuart Chase, 1931
"The larger concern is that technological "nature"
will shift the baseline of what people perceive as the full human experience of
nature, and that it will contribute to what we call environmental generational
amnesia."- Jolina Ruckert
"We live in a reality of old
and new that doesn't conform to
cliches. The important idea is that we must rethink what we mean and understand
by the term 'technology'. When we imagine technology we typically
focus on innovation - the new. We
typically think of one-way, progressive time lines, dates of 'invention' and 'first use'.
if you go to certain countries in the so-called undeveloped world and ask them
if they have any technology they will ruefully answer 'no'. By which they mean
they haven't invented anything
I would maintain that's a very odd definition of
technology because it's neither a definition that looks at what matters,
technologically, nor does it
focus on historically significant
In the 1940s
everyone was excited about supersonic
flight and atomic power, and in today's
history books we continue to think of
that era being dominated by those technologies. It wasn't. Those
history books are derived largely from
propaganda about technology. One might more correctly think of the 1940s as
a time of tanks, airplanes, cars, coal, wheat and pig farming.
inhabit a reality where what I call 'the futurism of the past' falsely conditions our conception of the
past. At the moment our understanding of
technology is driven by an obsession
with glamorous innovation which systematically narrows our vision and
obliterates any comprehensive account of technology's past.
This tendency is exacerbated
by narratives which repeat
themselves over time, irrespective of what actually happened in history. So
we have the steamship, the railway, the airplane, the radio,
global trade, the internet and the "coalition of the
willing" all portrayed as breaking down barriers between nations.
We are blinded by cliches when we turn
our mind to technology.
There is a
consensus in commerce that certain areas
of technology are sexiest and should be concentrated on. In fact, we should
invent wherever and whenever we can.
We should, for example, apply ourselves to
inventing new modes of public
transport, we should invent new
methods of cutting metal, we should invent new techniques of extruding
If we stop thinking about technology, as we have
conventionally conceived it, and think instead about 'things', we might better
grasp the complexities involved. We might even decommission the word 'technology' which has an inbuilt

consumer driven economy of
America is based on a constellation of concepts about ourselves, reality,
growth, wealth, and
the world we live in. These
conceptions deny the relevance of a spiritual way to do business
activities. Nature is primarily to be used for human
benefit, and anything that cannot be counted or measured in monetary terms has
limited or marginal "utility."
Earth is valued for its
resources, which are assumed to be infinite and inexhaustible. Even if not, we
have faith that human ingenuity will find suitable substitutes for any
shortages, and technological "fixes" for serious degradation of our
consumer driven economy presumes
that nations and corporations must grow in order to "progress," and assumes
that the "rational economic person" will strive to
amass as much material wealth and experience as much pleasure as possible.
These false beliefs encourage overconsumption as a way of life, for they posit
a world of boundless freedom without natural
limits or moral restraints on
human action. Electing
freedom to disobey the Law of God,
mankind exits the Garden of Eden and enters a
world where nature is to be conquered rather than accepted or
The roots of our alienation from
nature are deep. The illusions created
by the corporate dream merchants have become the new religion. In feeding the
dreams and desires of material salvation
here and now, corporations have deliberately created "the
consumer," an ideal
marketing target who rejects

steeped in desire for all things new.
When environmentalists claim that
we need to reduce consumption,
business and the consumer both
recoil. The consumer is so
well-conditioned to satisfying needs through things that any suggestion to cut
back is met with "intense anxiety,

the specific product is not remembered, the overall message is: there is a

1973 William A. Hamilton founds a
non-profit organization called the Institute for Law and Social Research to
develop case management software for law enforcement office
Funded by grants and contracts from the Law Enforcement
Assistance Administration (LEAA), the Institute developed a program it called
"PROMIS", an acronym for Prosecutors' Management Information System, for use in
law enforcement record keeping and case-monitoring activities.
PROMIS software was originally written in COBOL for use on mainframe computers.
A later version was developed to run on 16 bit mini-computers such as the DEC
PDP-11. The primary users of this early version of the software were the United
States Attorneys Office of the District of Columbia, and state and local law
enforcement. Both the mainframe and 16 bit mini-computer versions of PROMIS
were developed under LEAA contracts, and in later litigation, both Inslaw and
DOJ eventually agreed that the early version of Promis was in the
public domain, meaning that
neither the Institute nor its successor had exclusive rights to
1979 DOJ contractes with the Institute for
Law and Social Research to do a pilot project that installes versions of PROMIS
in four US Attorneys offices.
1980 Congress votes
to abolish the LEAA. Hamilton decides to continue operating as a for-profit
corporation and market the software to current and new users.
Hamilton established the for-profit Inslaw, transferring the Institute's assets
over to the new corporation. The real power of PROMIS, according to Hamilton,
is that with a staggering 570,000 lines of computer code, PROMIS can integrate
innumerable databases without requiring any reprogramming. In essence, PROMIS
can turn blind data into information.
Lawrence McWhorter, director of
the Executive Office for US Attorneys, "We're out to get Inslaw."
Madison "Brick" Brewer at one time worked for Inslaw, but was allowed to resign
when Hamilton found his performance inadequate, according to court documents.
Brewer was then hired into the DOJ specifically to oversee the contract of his

willfully" tried to convert the INSLAW Chapter 11 reorganization case to a
Chapter 7 liquidation "without
justification and by improper means." The DOJ "took, converted, stole,
INSLAW enhanced PROMIS by
March 1982 Inslaw enters into a
$9.6 million contract with the Justice Department to install the
public domain version of
PROMIS in 20 US Attorney's offices as a pilot program.
August 11, 1982 DOJ lawyer reply for clarification: "To the
extent that any other enhancements (beyond the
public domain PROMIS) were
privately funded by Inslaw and not specified to be delivered to the Department
of Justice under any contract or other agreement, Inslaw may assert whatever
proprietary rights it may have."
Inslaw converted the 16-bit version of
PROMIS to a 32-bit architecture running on a DEC VAX minicomputer.
May 6, 1983 Dr. Ben Orr leaves the DOJ with a
computer tape containing PROMIS tucked under his arm. PROMIS was then given or
sold at a profit to Israel and as many as 80 other countries by Dr. Earl W.
Brian, a man with close personal and business ties to then-President Ronald
Reagan and then-Presidential counsel Edwin Meese.
"The importance of
PROMIS is that it is not only capable of interfacing with a wide variety of
data bases in different computer languages and then integrating the data, but
it has also been modified for intelligence purposes. It has then been sold
throughout the world by spy agencies through third parties to clients such as
banks and investment houses envious of its unique capabilities. One key
modification by agencies such as the CIA and Mossad not disclosed to most users
- is a secret "back door" that permits those with the right codes to enter
databases undetected, retrieve and/or alter information, and leave without a
trace. PROMIS has been extensively reported as being used throughout the
world's financial markets because of its versatility in facilitating
international transactions." - Tom Flocco
2001 Robert Philip Hanssen, active in Opus Dei, has been tasked with
helping allies with the installation and use of their versions of the PROMIS
It is alleged that Robert Philip Hanssen sold high-tech
PROMIS software to the Russian KGB for $1.4 million in cash and diamonds which
was then sold it to Usamah bin Mohammad bin Laden.
Hanssen negotiated a plea bargain that enabled him to escape the death penalty,
was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, and was
required to submit to a gag
order with respect to public comments.
It is claimed Robert Philip
Hanssen gave his handlers a technical manual on the US intelligence community's
secure network for online access to intelligence databases, Field Office
Information Management Systems (FOIMS) and Community On-Line Intelligence
Systems (COINS) as part of his activities. Law enforcement authorities said
FOIMS and COINS are upgraded versions of the PROMIS software.

Indira Singh worked for
JP Morgan in a field called Risk
Management, involving computer systems and programs designed to keep the entire
information and financial structure of JP Morgan safe. The new system would
detect money laundering and other crimes in real time and then do something
about it; perhaps alert an "intelligent" software agent or a person, or
shutdown the transaction immediately. Indira Singh had also worked with a
Defense Advanced Research Project - DARPA-funded technology group, with close
ties to the CIA.
"People will find the trail to P-Tech, and it
wont be hidden or buried, Ive kept it alive, whether theyve

MITRE and Ptech
"The aviation agency is installing a computer
system that controllers can use to determine whether airplanes can depart from
established traffic lanes and fly long distances, and whether they will
conflict with other airplanes by doing so." - New York Times of June 7,
2001 Monte R. Belger*, Acting Deputy of the FAA from
1997-2002, was the key decision maker
responsible for upgrading the FAA computerized air traffic control system with
MITRE and Ptech.
Documents and reports from the MITRE Center for
Advanced Aviation System Development in McLean, Virginia, show that Ptech was
working with MITRE on FAA computer systems. After he left the FAA, Monte R.
Belger became the "Vice President, Government Connection" of a small
Israeli-run company based in the Fort Lauderdale area called US Aviation
US Aviation Technology was founded by Ehud "Udi" Mendelson*,
who described himself as "a captain in the prestigious Army Intelligence Unit
of the Israel Defense Force."
The Israel Venture Capital Research
Center website specifically name Monte Belger of Centreville, Virginia, as a
Vice President and Government Connection of US Aviation Technology LLC. Ehud
Mendelson, Chief Technology Officer of US Aviation Technology, promoted a
remote-control system that allows a "ground pilot" to monitor and adjust the
computer flight systems on aircraft giving the ground pilot all of the data and
the visuals that the pilot in the aircraft has.
"We put the ground
'pilot' in the cockpit." - Ehud Mendelson
"Ptech was with MITRE
Corporation in the basement of the FAA for two years prior to 911. Their
specific job is to look at interoperability issues the FAA had with NORAD and
the Air Force in the case of an emergency. If anyone was in a position to know
that the FAA - that there was a window of opportunity or to insert software or
to change anything - it would have been Ptech along with MITRE. Ptech software
is utilized at the highest levels of almost every government and military and
defense organization in this country including the Secret Service, the FBI, the
Department of Defense, the House of Representatives, the Treasury Department,
the IRS, the US Navy, the US Air Force, and, last but not least, the Federal
Aviation Administration." - Indira Singh
Rodney Schlesinger was United States Secretary of Defense from 1973 to 1975
under presidents Richard Nixon and
Gerald Ford. He became
America's first Secretary of Energy under Jimmy Carter. James Rodney
Schlesinger* was Chairman of Board of directors of MITRE. The MITRE Corporation
manages Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) supporting
the Department of Defense, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the
Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the Department of Veterans Affairs. On
March 5, 2009, MITRE was awarded one of two FFRDCs supporting the Department of

Ptech's roster of clients included several
governmental agencies, including the United States Armed Forces, NATO,
Congress, the Department of Energy, the Department of Justice, the Federal
Bureau of Investigation, Customs, the FAA, the IRS, the Secret Service, and the
it hard to believe that the most sensitive government and military computers
would run enterprise software from a Lebanese-owned start-up company called
Ptech from Quincy, Mass. I soon discovered that the real key person involved in
the development of the company was a Zionist Jewish lawyer named Michael Goff
from Worcester, Mass. Michael Goff also worked for an Israeli-run computer
security company called Guardium." - Christopher Bollyn
Ptech had a
security clearance to work on sensitive military projects dating to 1997. On
December 5, 2002 a raid by federal authorities under the auspices of Operation
Green Quest was conducted at Ptech headquarters. The purpose of the raid was to
stop funding of terrorist organizations.
2009 FBI unsealed indictments against former PTech CEO Oussama Ziade and
former PTech CFO Buford George Peterson. Peterson was arrested at JFK Airport
as he returned to the US. Ziade remains at large overseas. The indictments
charge Ziade and Peterson with concealing PTech's relationship with and dealing
in the assets of the Specially Designated Global Terrorist, Yasin al-Qadi.
Yasin al-Qadi's wife is part of the Jamjoom family, and her father, Qadi's
father-in-law, is a former high-ranking Saudi finance minister.
