This week’s archive radio show started off last year with a lesson on how to be an activist! (It’s a fun job — but somebody’s gotta do it!)

Then, we reveal how Americans are educated just enough to not realize how uneducated they actually are. After that, we point out that humans have an amazing ability to accept insanity as normal when insanity becomes normalized — especially since if they ever rationally faced the insanity then they would probably go insane. Next, we fulfill our duty to utterly terrify you by pointing out how with recent advances in technology, then very soon the 1% may not need us to build their world for them any longer. (And you know their usual policy toward what they consider to be ‘useless mouths’ — i.e. someone that does not produce profit for them.)

Then, for the feature piece this week, we describe how David Patraeus — ex-head of the CIA — came right out and admitted that they are going to start using the ‘smart grid’ and ‘smart appliances’ to spy on us.

Now your refrigerator will be spying on you right along with your phone, your computer, your car, and your alarm system, etc.

There will soon be nowhere that is safe.

The Thunderbolt is likely to broadcast news that will rock your socks. Beware.
