Scientia Est Potentia
The Information Awareness Office is a DARPA agency with a freakishly Orwellian/Illuminatus logo (the eye in the pryamid is watching over the world) and the motto Scientia Est Potentia: Knowledge Is Power. The man who heads this office is John Poindexter, who orchestrated the Iran-Contra affair for Reagan. Do you want him in charge of your privacy?
