This mix was created in response to the recent news of the NSA's domestic spying, and the persecution of whistleblowers Edward Snowden and Bradley Manning. It's mostly Old School Industrial - nothing beats OSI for anti-totalitarian themed music (wow, it's like they saw this coming...) with some synthpop, a bit of 80s, plus a couple other tracks that fit the theme.
I was hoping to include some links to news stories and lyrics, but Mixcloud only allows 1000 characters here.
The playlist is roughly organized around the five stages of grief, plus a section on the consequences for the whistleblowers.
0:00:00 Part 1: Denial (the state of the world)
0:27:04 Part 2: Persecution of the whistleblowers
0:44:08 Part 3: Anger (this one's pretty much self-explanatory!)
1:09:16 Part 4: Bargaining (Not Here, Not Now, Not Me...)
1:32:53 Part 5: Depression
1:57:11 Part 6: Acceptance/Call to Action
2:33:07 Part 7: Postscript. More shameless editorializing on my part ;-)
