The above beautiful piece of excrement that violates the First Amendment was authored by none other than Dianne Feinstein, Statist. Yeah, I know, she calls herself a "democrat", but let us call a spade a spade.
Yes, the above was passed into law. I always like it when congress says they "pass" something into law.
Yeah, I pass some things myself at least once a day, but I don't have the audacity to call it a law. It sure looks and smells like the stuff that comes out of congress though.
I am not teaching you, instructing you, demonstrating to you the making of explosive materials. I am also not distributing information on manufacturing explosives with any intent other than showing you, the reader, how easy it is to find such information on the Internet. It is purely for information purposes only!
Some of you may be wondering why I'm digging up all this stuff and posting links to it. To be quite frank, I think there is the possibility that the Internet is going to be controlled and censored soon. More so than it is now. There is the real possibility that it may become unavailable, whether it be due to natural or man-made events. I want people to get this stuff now, rather than trying to get it later. I also think it is helpful to get you all to think outside the "box". Society and our jobs mold people into what a friend of mine likes to refer to as "'droids". A pre-programed set of instructions gets ingrained into people's psyches and it is difficult to break out of that existence. So, here's a peak at how some other people think.
The war on information being waged, by everyone from anti-porn groups to the government itself, has been going on ever since the World Wide Web has come into being. Even before the WWW was a societal fixture, the government tried to shut down so called "underground" Bulletin Board Systems (BBS) in an effort to stop the proliferation of the instruments of mass instruction.
Senate Panel Focuses on Internet as a Classroom for Violence - New York Times, May 12, 1995
Americans are not easily bullied by the hand wringing, wet diaper crowd. Efforts here in the US to censor the 'net eventually moved to restrictions on public libraries' rights and responsibilities when it came to providing Internet access.
The move to censor the 'net has moved offshore to countries like China, Australia, and even Venezuela. I tend to suspect that we will get back-doored again with some damn treaty that will supercede our own laws.
Just look at what is happening in Australia. The Aussies have realized how badly they were lied to when it came to surrendering their guns, and hopefully they've laid in a healthy supply of rope and won't let this get by without a fight.
Even Hillary "FatLegs" Clinton has weighed in on the issue, but I suspect in a mostly self serving way, being a Statist herself. ComputerWeekly.Com - More Governments Plan to Censor The Internet
Do you know why they're censoring? They're afraid. Of you. If they weren't doing anything wrong, what would they have to fear? Isn't that the line they always spout when Mr. TSA agent or Mr. Policeman pulls you over?
So, let us add to their fear.
Everyone knows the "Anarchist Cookbook". There are many such files available for download purporting to be the original "Anarchist's Cookbook". Some of them built upon the original work authored by William Powell, and others are merely collections of text files of dubious parentage. Some of these text files are wildly inaccurate and even dangerous. There was some discussion a few years ago concerning some of the more dangerous treatise on making drugs and explosives being intentionally introduced to the 'net by government disinformation agents.
The William Powell's version of the Cookbook published in 1971 is somewhat dated now. Changes in technology have changed the way bugs and bug jammers are built and utilized. However, the information on weapons, explosives, and drugs is worthwhile, even today nearly forty years later.
A good version of an "updated" Anarchist Cookbook is available HERE. It is a compressed file, so you will need something like WinRAR, available free from www.rarlabs.com to uncompress it. Even some of the information in here is dated, but if you were never into "carding" and didn't know how the scam worked, its a good chance to learn.
Here is a scan of THE ORIGINAL Anarchist Cookbook by William Powell that you can download for comparison. HERE. It is in PDF format.
If you read the New York Times piece above, you saw a reference to The Big Book Of Mischief. It is a very good source of information similar to the Anarchist Cookbook, but it concerns itself only with the manufacture and use of explosives.
The original version is still available today at the official TBBOM website. HERE
I know some of you are asking yourself, "Why do I need to know how to make drugs?" My answer, if it really comes down to it, wouldn't introducing a hallucinogen into the food, air, or water supply of a foe just be so much fun?
Remember kiddies, save and share!
