A Spy State is being erected around us.
To police our every behavior then create a comprehensive, personalized profile used to predict our actions before they happen.
We are a conquered people.
Staying far too tolerant, apathetic, or blissfully unaware we allow it to occur from within, to fester until we succumb.

By sifting through the publicly available information we glean the truth.
Reports routinely show the rise in American surveillance, driven by a public-private relationship working in concert to usurp our rights. They reveal piecemeal programs and plans without underscoring a broader nefarious agenda.
We break the spy state down into categories, starting from the most familiar than working towards the more abstract. All collected data falls into quadrants split between information we willingly give up and whats taken without our knowledge or consent — both in the physical and digital world. There is a legal framework behind it. In front is a layer of spin and propaganda. And underneath is a storage matrix so great that it’s almost unbelievable.

Most Americans remain woefully unaware of this spy state building up around them, ignorant of its scope and the various facets that dot our surroundings — every minute of every day.
The purpose of this film is to connect the dots and expose the structure.

In the age of the brand, logos are everywhere. But why do some of the world’s best-known brands find themselves on the wrong end of the spray paint can — the targets of anti-corporate campaigns by activists and protesters?

No Logo, based on the best-selling book by Canadian journalist and activist Naomi Klein, reveals the reasons behind the backlash against the increasing economic and cultural reach of multinational companies. Analyzing how brands like Nike,The Gap, and Tommy Hilfiger became revered symbols worldwide, Klein argues that globalization is a process whereby corporations discovered that profits lay not in making products (outsourced to low-wage workers in developing countries), but in creating branded identities people adopt in their lifestyles.

Using hundreds of media examples, No Logo shows how the commercial takeover of public space, destruction of consumer choice, and replacement of real jobs with temporary work – the dynamics of corporate globalization – impact everyone, everywhere. It also draws attention to the democratic resistance arising globally to challenge the hegemony of brands.  From www.mediaed.org
