How To Be Invisible
http://www.canaryislandspress.com/media/HTBI2000.pdf ^ | 2000 | J. J. Luna

Posted on 03/24/2010 5:25:31 AM PDT by GoodDay

This book is dedicated to an anonymous member of Spain's Secret Police. On January 27, 1960, during a brief encounter on a quiet back street in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, I asked him for advice on how best to avoid any problems in the land of Generalissimo Francisco Franco. The advice he gave me has served me well for forty years. He said there was only one way to avoid troubles with the authorities: "Make yourself invisible."

Excellent "how to" book on privacy. This free downloadable PDF is the original version published in July 2000. There's a revised and updated version published in 2004 that you can buy from the usual sources.

Just about every vehicle built since 2001 has a Black Box.

I tried for about a decade of my youth to be invisible. Changes in laws and procedures made it nearly impossible.

Once I decided to enter the real world, my *invisibility* quickly dissolved.

Here's one of those "friend of a friend" stories....

A friend of mine told me knows someone who paid a mechanic (either pro or "shade-tree") to remove all the semiconductor-based systems from a car; they were either replaced with old-fashioned "analog" equivalents, or removed (un-integrated) altogether if not necessary for running the car. This was done to make the car EMP-proof, but there are certainly people who could do something similar for "invisibility" purposes.

This a great book in that it gives rise to serious questions, however, the answers are a bit off.

1. Private inestigstors are not all knowing or powerful. They can’t find anyone that takes the appropriate actions to go dark.

2. An LLC is not a cloaking device. Business records of incorporation are public records. Many State Secretary offices place such records online. They even scan and show the originals. The point is that at some point you must lie in order to go dark. You must create a ficticious identity, and you must have no connection to it. The DoD, State Dept all have experts that do such things for them.

If I have to create a false identity just to live in my own country it is time to change that country. We must stand proud as Americans, stand and be counted, not hide in fear.

We bought this book a couple of years ago. We will soon be moving to the country and using some of his suggestions. Utilities will be in “farm” name, vehicles will be in “farm” name, insurance will be in “farm” name, use of PO Box that is not attached to our address, and the use of a Ghost address for deliveries.

Unfortunately we did not have his book before we purchased the property.

I’ve read it. It’s very dated. Recent legislation makes in nearly impossible to implement his full “invisibility” plan. I did take some good info away from it, including using revocable trusts to afford privacy and avoid probate on land, and finding someone who can be your “package receiver”.

“We must stand proud as Americans, stand and be counted, not hide in fear.”

I understand this sentiment; however, there is a time and a place for everything. We need to be very, very clever. Nope, nobody is going to get points by playing the martyr - your family will starve, you’ll be a prison pin-cushion (lots of pricks in you), etc. I am all for going down so you can hold your head high to Your Savior, but part of being a Son of Liberty is to not get caught, to harass, to stymie. One less player weakens and draws out what us wolves will be trying to accomplish.

Sorry to speak in code, but I imagine many of you understand what I am talking about.

Oh my...I've actually read this book!... back around 2003 or so. It's a little dated, but there is indeed a lot of good information in it. It has a lot of good fundamentals in it that "should" help people to start thinking differently, if they really want to. The problem with most people is that they have a mindset that makes them believe things such as the notion that e-mail and blog postings are secure and can't be traced back to them. They simply need to shift their mentality and adopt a philosophy of OPSEC for daily life. :-)

There’s a rather unsettling conclusion to the book which will definitely help certain aspects of Castigo Cay. The author gives good and practical ways to stay off the “main” radar in society. He even goes as far as explaining how to disappear completely. But if I remember correctly, he did warn that anybody with enough time and money (but mainly money) would eventually find the person they were looking for... no matter how hard that person tried to be “invisible”. :-)

(Found this fiction on the internet.)

INT. UNDERGROUND DC PARKING GARAGE. BOTTOM LEVEL. NIGHT.

Libra’s footsteps echo off the walls. The buzz of a flickering neon light is heard. In the corner of the garage a whole sector of lights has gone dark. Shadows thicken. A lighter flickers in the darkness as a cigar is lit.

LIBRA: Carthago. Countersign?

CENTURION: Delenda est. Sort of overly dramatic don’t you think?

LIBRA: Not paid to think. What is the assignment?

CENTURION: The Wing thinks it’s time to lay a little blue smoke between the mirrors. Take the heat off our team and torch the other side. That’s your job.

LIBRA: Fine. How wet does the Wing want it to get?

CENTURION: We project that if three team members are sent down it should put a stop to any attrition in November.

LIBRA: Wouldn’t taking out just one serve the same purpose?

CENTURION: No. It has to look like a pattern.

LIBRA: Fine. Any particular team members you need erased?

CENTURION: Nobody from Chicago or San Francisco. And from safe seats only. We need to preserve the count. Renegade’s very keen on that.

LIBRA: Level of obfuscation?

CENTURION: None. Public and messy. “Accidents” would be counter productive. But no families. Renaissance would be upset.

LIBRA: Timing?

CENTURION: Within the next 10 days. It would be best if all three were within the same day.

LIBRA: You want target clearance and notification?

CENTURION: No. This will be the last contact for this contract.

LIBRA: Half to the Bahamas account by noon tomorrow and the half on completion to our friend in Costa Rica.

CENTURION: Done.

LIBRA: Anything else?

CENTURION: No. If we need you again we can always find you.

LIBRA: That’s what you people always think. Oh, by the way, was that stuff about you being naked in the showers the real deal?

CENTURION: Just get it done.

FADE TO BLACK
