Counterintelligence, Privacy, and Tech
Kit Perez is the co-author of Basics of Resistance: The Practical Freedomista, Book I, a primer on resistance methods. She’s also a counterintelligence and statement analyst, as well as a longtime political writer on national security, intelligence and privacy/tech topics. She holds a BA in Counterintelligence, a Masters in Intelligence Studies, and specializes in deception detection, HUMINT, and digital surveillance issues. She has written two academic papers on an original concept called MXINT, a hybrid form of intelligence that merges aircraft system data with ‘soft’ data gained from personal interaction with airlines; MXINT predicts when and what maintenance issues can be expected on a commercial aircraft. An advanced form of MXINT is in development and use today.
After nearly a decade in Seattle, Kit packed up and walked away from her corporate life, choosing instead to move to the American Redoubt. Living in the mountains of western Montana, Kit and her gunsmith husband have a small homestead, where they raise a variety of farm animals, grow their own food, and work toward total sustainability.
Kit composes for piano and violin in her spare time.

We’ve talked about how to decide what information is critical, who wants it, what they could do with it, how likely it is they can get it, and where the holes in your current system are. Now it’s time to answer the last question: What are you going to do about it?read more
It’s not enough to know what your critical information is, or who wants it. It’s not even enough to look at how they could get it; although all of those are important parts of the process, they’re not complete. There are two more steps to go, and the next one answers the question “What is the risk of them getting the information?”read more
For many of us, “milk” means “cow milk” by default, and the idea of drinking goat milk sounds a bit…third world-ish. The truth, however, is that we were all wrong. Setting up to produce a bit of goat milk on your homestead is one of the best decisions you’ll make.read more
Total sustainability demands that you be able to breed your chickens (and any other livestock, actually) in a way that keeps your flock strong, disease-resistant, and productive.read more
What if you could have a full vegetable garden, right now, in any room of your house, any time of year, growing faster, better, and bigger than a traditional garden — and you could have everything you needed to do it year after year for about $350? Enter the small hydroponics system.read more
Sometimes the dirty tricks we need to be able to engage in as part of activism and resistance violate other principles that we hold dear. There is a middle ground, and there is a way to have your activist cake and eat it too. It requires understanding yourself at your core, and being brutally honest about what’s in there.read more
