In addition to manufacturing Princess telephones, Western Electric makes gui- ded missiles and is a prominent member of the military- industrial complex which so frightened President Eisenhower that he warned against its "acqui- sition of unwarranted influence" in his farewell address. An examination of Western Electric's defense work shows that the President had ample reason for alarm. Through adept use of a technique called profit pyramiding in the de- fense industry, Western Electric ran up profits of 31.3 percent on its major missile contracts, while helping the Pentagon accumulate military junk that was never used.

Editors Note: We intend to show, through statements such as the above two, how the Bell System has become anti-human to its customers, employees, and just about everyone else. However, it should be noted that these statements are taken out of context, and do not do justice to the case. The whole story is a lot scarier that just a "profit-gobbler". Its a question of accumulation of power and securing that power. You know, great that people are being mon- itored, but shit, people are being slaughtered. All in the name of money. And since we give them the money, we are at fault. Stop paying and start yelling. See ya next month, phreeks.
