I agree with the sentiments posted here (leaving the country, violent resistence, etc.)

But I think that, in the long run, perhaps it would be more useful to develop and support technologies that take power away from big governments in the first place -- things like Bittorrent, Wikileaks, solar power...

I've been doing a lot of reading in the cognitive sciences and how they see that most thought is unconscious, most thought is below your awareness... about 98%.

Uhm. What does that even mean? I hate to nitpick. I've been doing a lot of reading in the cognitive sciences, too. A lot of those numbers ("people only use 10% of their brains", "Einstein only used 10% of his brain") are totally bogus. Where does that number come from?
