We recommend you read the enclosed advance copy in privacy, and then immediately destroy it. The sensitive content found within The Rise of the American Corporate Security State: Six Reasons to be Afraid, by Beatrice Edwards - Executive Director and International Program Director for the Government Accountability Project (GAP), the organization providing legal representation to Edward Snowden - will seem like the stuff of conspiracies, but we assure you, the information and the threats to American privacy are real.

the government is actively working against your better interests.
