Back when we were in school we heard the question a million times: "What are you going to be when you grow up?" Some of us had an answer, others were undecided, some had no idea. But we all assumed that the question could be answered. That whatever career we chose already existed. But in a world where technological and societal change means our children's future jobs likely don't exist yet, what does that say about the ability to "manage" or "direct" the "economy"? What if I told you that no one could direct the economy, and that that was a good thing? What if I told you that the greatest trick the ruling class ever pulled was getting us to believe we need them in the first place?
The NSA's illegal warrantless wiretapping program. The building of the massive NSA data center in Utah to permanently store copies of all digital communication sent around the world. The UK government's "Communications Data Bill" to monitor emails, instant messages and other personal information. What was dismissed as crazy conspiracy theory just over a decade ago has become, in this post-9/11 era, the all-too-familiar stuff of newspaper headlines and talking head reportage.
In fact, it was about a decade ago that the tactic of the intelligence agencies seemed to change. Instead of keeping their activities classified–referring to the NSA as "No Such Agency," for example, or officially denying the existence of Echelon–the government increasingly began shoving this information in the public's face.
Perhaps the scariest thing about something like the Total Information Awareness Office is not merely that it was proposed in the first place, or that it incorporated such blatantly creepy Orwellian imagery to convey its true nature and purpose, but that, as we sit here 10 years later, and as the core functions of the TIA office are now being openly performed by the NSA, DHS and other governmental agencies, people are now actively making excuses for this nightmarish police state.
"If you have nothing to hide then you have nothing to fear" has always been the rallying cry for those who are too afraid of questioning presumed governmental authority to speak out against the surveillance state and the implied assumption of guilt that goes along with it. With feigned bemusement these moral midgets inevitably ask "What's so bad about the government spying on you, anyway?"
The answer, of course, is that the very question implies that the agencies tasked with carrying out this constant Big Brother surveillance are themselves above reproach, shining lights of moral rectitude who would never abuse this incredible power for nefarious ends. For the unimaginative out there, Hollywood yarns like "Enemy of the State" have provided fictional examples of what can go wrong if someone, somewhere, abuses this power of information and surveillance to target an innocent person in the wrong place at the wrong time.
To be sure, the power that these technologies give for agencies, or corrupt groups within those agencies, to destroy the lives of targeted individuals, is itself a fitting answer to the question of why government surveillance should be troubling to us. But beyond what can happen to specific, targeted individuals in such a scenario, however, is a much larger question: What if this data, our emails, our phone calls, our credit card transactions, our social media posts, our cell phone GPS logs, and all of the hundreds of other pieces of data that are admittedly being collected on us every day, were being fed into a database so gargantuan it contains a digital version of every single person on the planet? And what if that database were being used by the Department of Defense to war game various scenarios, from public reactions to natural disasters to the likelihood of civil unrest in the wake of a declaration of martial law?

Dr. Leon was a Lecturer in the Political Science Department at Howard University in Washington, DC for 11 years where he taught courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in National Government, Introduction to Political Science, Introduction to Black Politics and Judicial Process.
Dr. Leon is a recognized scholar and much sought after speaker and writer. He is a nationally syndicated columnist with the Trice-Edney News Service. His Opinion/Editorials are also published regularly in The Root, The Grio, Black Agenda Report, Black Politics on the Web, Politic365, The Maynard Institute, and many others. He writes on Congressional Politics, the Presidency, the Constitution and Bill of Rights, American Government, and Public Policy with a vast understanding of international issues as well.
Dr. Leon is a Magna Cum Laude graduate with a BA in Political Science from Hampton Institute, a Masters in Public Administration (MPA) from Howard University, and a Ph.D. in Political Science from Howard University where he studied under Ronald Walters, Joseph McCormick, and Lenneal Henderson. He hosts and produces "Inside the Issues with Wilmer Leon" on Sirius/XM 128 and appears regularly on RT TV, CNN MSNBC, Press TV, Al Arabiya TV and TV One.
Wilmer talks about his recent book Politics Another Perspective: Analysis of Race, War, Ethics and the American Political Landscape in the Age of Obama .
As Churchill once said: "What kind of people do we think we are?" A nation that glorifies its past and doesn't examine its present has no future. Today, when more Americans vote for American Idol then the American presidency, one can easily witness how much the Military/Entertainment/ imprisonment complex has changed our national landscape.
Intense, iconoclastic and fearless in equal measure, Wilmer Leon III, Ph.D. Politics: Another Perspective is a collection of 80 Op Ed's that reveal, in devastating detail, the various issues that have and continue to influence the american geopolitical landscape into the direction that the country is headed.
Leon's journey begins at the epicenter of hell. the inner cities, where the true causes of racism, drug use and violence are revealed, continues with his incisive analysis of the formative influence of slavery on America's very identity: "it was free slave trade labors that enabled the economic foundation of the republic to transition from a feudal system to a capitalistic system" and concludes with Leon's insistence that a moral revolution is needed. Without such a fundamental transformation, America will implode under the trifecta of racism, materialism and militarism.
Just when you thought it's all been said about President Obama's historic victory which signaled a giant leap forward in the American social, political and cultural landscape, Leon's Another Perspective helps readers understand America's racial history and the fierce whitelash that followed. Reactionary politics coupled with Democratic Party and Obama administration's inability to articulate an effective counter narrative and employ effective countermeasures has left America in a political abyss and the breeding ground for the Trump administration that followed..
In the storm of race relations, Leon has always been the peacemaker. While the lens he views the world is that of a political scientist who is African American, Leon's "other" perspective in Another Perspective is his clarification of current events. Most pundits and the people who listen to them look at events through a narrow prism, isolated from a broader historical content. Leon strongly connects the dots between the past and the present. He rightly proclaims that there are no just solutions to problems unless they are understood within an historical context.
Dr. Wilmer Leon doesn't just inspire us, he informs us with his intelligence, authenticity, generosity and compassion. At a time when most people in the public eye still parse their pronouncements with caution and are tightly leashed to high-paid consultants who advise them on how to be "beige", Dr. Leon is a breath of fresh air. When it comes to authenticity, he's the real thing.
