Be prepared to revise all that you once thought to be a series of unlikely conspiracies propagated by fringe thinkers and kooky paranoids. This dictionary transforms conspiracy into normative reality, and disbelief into the condition of truth.
"The realm of oppression, we now indicate by "media"- advertizing, propaganda, mind control PR, spin management, et. - was analyzed by Renaissance magi like Giordano Bruno as "magic". As this realm is englobed by Cyberspace, technique itself becomes ever more occult. Whether we wish to beat a tectical or even strategic retreat from this terminal Enclosure, or else stand contend with it, we need to recover the "secrets" of hermetic critic and hieroglyphic theory. Konrad Becker like a modern Bruno offers us a "Memory Palace" (a dictionary no less!) of knowledge about consciousness and its control, wether by self or others, in the age of the post-organic. For fucks sake don't leave home without it. Listen to your Uncle Konrad. He knows if you have been good or bad - and he prefers bad."
"Be afraid, be very afraid! Counterintelligence operator Konrad Becker guides us through circles of Hell unimagined by Dante: the circles of totalizing control, even unto consciousness-control, nerve-control, face-control, soul-control…. This Tactical Reality Dictionary transforms paranoiacs into visionaries and truth-tellers. But know that counterintelligence agents are busy everywhere crafting hidden networks of autonomous becoming and unsealing the sluice gates of revolt."
"An injunction to wrest lexical dominion from the powers that be, Konrad Beckers' Tactical Reality Dictionary is not so much the final word on words as a prototype for (hyper) active reading in the age of consolidated information control. Since Adbusters' 'Journal for the Mental Environment' only ever did half the job, and one shrink was never enough to understand our paranoid reality, why not take a leaf out of his book and write one of your own?"
