Eisenhower identified the early stages of The Information-Industrial Complex

Eisenhower: "... For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers... ...Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.

Half a century ago, outgoing President Dwight D. Eisenhower coined the term “military-industrial complex” to describe the fascistic collusion between the Pentagon and America’s burgeoning armaments industry. But in our day and age we are witnessing the rise of a new collusion, one between the Pentagon and the tech industry that it helped to seed, that is committed to waging a covert war against people the world over. Now, in the 21st century, it is time to give this new threat a name: the information-industrial complex.

Why We Fight & Eisenhower's warning

The first link is a video. The second link is the text of the entire speech. It was Eisenhower's farewell
speech - Jan 17, 1961. In it, he speaks of the military industrial complex and how we must remain
vigilant against their influence. It is a remarkable warning from a man that clearly demonstrates
the character that I always expected of an American President. Sadly, his fears are being realized

For an excellent documentary on why we are fighting today and why we will continue to fight, watch the DVD "Why We Fight" directed by Eugene Jarecki.
