Titel: Welcome To The Machine
Sub titel: Science, Surveillance, And The Culture Of Control
Tiny ID chips track every car, shirt and razor blade purchased from corporate manufacturers. Governments and multinational corporations gather information on every citizen's race, family life, credit record, buying preferences, employment history, favorite TV shows, telephone conversations - and can surreptitiously peruse emails. Exoskeleton armor makes soldiers invincible, while mind-altering drugs make them incapable of remorse. In Welcome To The Machine, the award-winning duo reveal the modern culture of the machine, where corporate might makes technology right, government money feeds the greed for mad science, and absolute surveillance leads to absolute control. Through meticulous research and fiercely personal narrative, J & D move beyond journalism and expose to question our civilization's very mode of existence. Welcome challenges our submission to the institutions and technologies built to rob us of all that makes us human - our connection to the land, our kinship with one another, our place in the living world.
