Research stuff

So, I’m doing research on dystopian theories and practical application…ok, really, what I’m doing is looking for fodder for my NanoWriMo death march novel. (Which, as we get closer to the start of the contest, is starting to wig me out a little.)

Anyway, so I’m out looking for links that prove the world really *is* as screwed up as I think it might be. Below are some links that I’ll be using…I’ll probably continue to add to this list.

If you run across stories about invasion of privacy, loss of civil rights because of sweeping unread legislation, secret police stuff, feel free to post them. :)
