May 2007 – In the war against terrorism, what’s the trade-off Americans are confronting between security and privacy?

“So many people in America think this does not affect them. They’ve been convinced that these programs are only targeted at suspected terrorists. … I think that’s wrong. … Our programs are not perfect, and it is inevitable that totally innocent Americans are going to be affected by these programs,” former CIA Assistant General Counsel Suzanne Spaulding tells FRONTLINE correspondent Hedrick Smith in Spying on the Home Front.

9/11 has indelibly altered America in ways that people are now starting to earnestly question: not only perpetual orange alerts, barricades and body frisks at the airport, but greater government scrutiny of people’s records and electronic surveillance of their communications. The watershed, officials tell FRONTLINE, was the government’s shift after 9/11 to a strategy of pre-emption at home — not just prosecuting terrorists for breaking the law, but trying to find and stop them before they strike.

President Bush described his anti-terrorist measures as narrow and targeted, but a FRONTLINE investigation has found that the National Security Agency (NSA) has engaged in wiretapping and sifting Internet communications of millions of Americans; the FBI conducted a data sweep on 250,000 Las Vegas vacationers, and along with more than 50 other agencies, they are mining commercial-sector data banks to an unprecedented degree.  More at PBS.org

There is a cabal of power-hungry corporations that are systematically destroying humanity’s future. These companies have taken over the food supply, injected pesticides, viruses and invading genes into staple crops, engineered “terminator” genes that make crop seeds unviable, destroyed the livelihood of farmers and used every tactic they could think of — legal threats, intimidation, bribery, monopolistic market practices and many more — to gain monopolistic control over the global food supply.

One documentary brings you this astonishing story. Through the testimony of family farmers, ecological scientists, agricultural experts and numerous public documents, The Future of Food tells a horrifying, heart-stopping story of how Big Agriculture has sold out the future of human civilization for the almighty dollar.

The Future of Food is a compelling, eye-opening documentary that I consider a “must-see documentary” by anyone who eats food (which probably includes you). Even if you think you know everything worth knowing about your food, there’s still a dark secret the biotech companies believe U.S. consumers should not be allowed to know: That many foods are genetically engineered with dangerous pesticides and foreign DNA, and there is currently no U.S. law requiring their labeling as such.
