Horton, Forest W. Jr. The Technocrats

Leisure Books, New York 1980

Topics: e-government
Themes: information, takeover

But now he had a few things that no one else had. The Top Secret, crypto-passwords to the White House computers! And those keys gave him the power of information. He could withhold it, distort it or dispense it. Like a king knighting a baron. Or a rich man giving away gold. Or a pope giving a bishop the red biretta of a cardinal. The power of information! A power perhaps greater than all the rest put together -- riches, fame, fortune, stardom or authority! p 104
