Subject: Lessig and the "i-PATRIOT Act" ?

These days you really have to wonder what evil is being cooked up and/
or being implemented in the name of "homeland security' -- sounds like
"please trust us" is being used again to quickly get controversial
things enacted w/o public scrutiny.  True or not, I wouldn't put
anything past anyone these days..........and perhaps some informed
paranoia is warranted here given the INSANE levels of security
associated with the National Cybersecurity Initiative. .....Now, I can
understand secrecy to protect sources and methods, but my gut-check
tells me the INSANE levels of hush-hush over this "sweeping
cybersecurity initiative" likely is to cover up another suspect and
potentially-illegal public-private powergrab in the name of 'security'
as done so frequently by this Administration. --  but is there a
connection between what I suggest here and Lessig's comments?  You be
the judge.  I hope I'm wrong, but we've been fooled/tricked/cajoled/
scared/lied-to enough in the past to be a bit concerned.   -rf
