A Good American

After the end of the Cold War the best code-breaker the US ever had together with a small team within NSA starts to develop a revolutionary surveillance program. It can pick up any electronic signal on earth, filter it for targets, render results in real time and all of it without invading privacy.

The program is perfect – except for one detail: it’s too low cost. Therefore the tax dollar hungry NSA management dumps it – three weeks prior to 9/11! When in the aftermath of the attack NSA starts its mass surveillance of Americans, the code-breaker leaves the agency. A friend takes over and manages to revive the program in early 2002...

One of the most important stories of the information society that reveals the inner workings of a politicoeconomic network whose reach goes way beyond America.

A documentary by Friedrich Moser.

Friedrich Moser with Matthieu Lietaert created the 2012 revealing documentary "The Brussels Business", which is actually a detailed summary of how the lobbyists came to occupy the EU, imposing the neoliberal agenda. The one that now destroys Greece and other countries through memorandums by troika (ECB, IMF, European Commission).

The Brussels Business is actually a docu-thriller that dives into the grey zone underneath European democracy. An expedition into the world of the 15,000 lobbyists in the EU-capital, of the PR-conglomerates, think tanks and their all embracing networks of power and their close ties to the political elites.

The documentary also describes the ongoing struggle of groups of activists, like those of the Corporate Europe Observatory, to expose the secret procedures who led to the complete occupation of the European Institutions by banking/corporate groups of interests at the expense of the real Democracy in Europe.
