Please read the last paragraph, it explains everything.
Uncle Sam Wants You!
No, No. This is not just about your sorry ass in uniform, over in some foreign country (Fighting for the glory and profit of USA inc. ). This is much bigger. This is the whole enchilada. "Uncle ", wants to own every molecule and electron of your being, from the moment Daddy gets a gleam in his eye, till the last worm has finished feasting on your carcass.
Every moment of every day you have, will be spent under the microscope of the Corporate State of Amerika; and this is all you can bequeath to your children. Every activity you do and everything you think will be annexed to the benefit of The State and its Owners.
You are now a Slave. You own nothing, even your thoughts. If you communicate these thoughts to anyone, they will be taken from you. If these thoughts dissent from the profits of the State, they will be used to imprison and punish you to the full extent (infinite) of The State.
That is what total security looks like. Do you feel safer now? Thanks to the few brave whistleblowers, we can no longer pretend ignorance.
The NSA, the FBI, and the CIA, are the watchful eyes and ears, of the Big Brother State. We now know some of what they can, and will, do. Obviously, if there is more, they want that also!
From this moment forth, your only value is what you can contribute to the Corporate State! Many former freedoms must be canceled because they are contrary to the goals and efficiency of The State. Choices about where and how you live are no longer yours alone. Should your communications show a tendency to making bad choices, you will be advised, and if that is not sufficient further actions will be suggested to your employer and social groups. Those few who have chosen to live in the wilderness, like animals, will be detained and re educated, because of the environmental damage they are causing, and because of the fact that all people must contribute to the benefit and security of The Homeland. George Carlin said it best, "This is a Club, and you ain't in it." ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acLW1vFO-2Q )
If the above sounds like some "Mad Rant' ask yourself this ONE QUESTION:
Given that we now know the awesome capabilities of the surveillance machinery, why are crimes of all sorts still being committed by "known" criminals?? When investigators just have to submit the names and telephone numbers of people to gain access to their private communications. Then why are criminals large and small, still operating everywhere without prosecution? Why are pedophiles and rapists running loose, don't they talk to anyone? Why is everyone shocked and amazed when large and complex frauds are uncovered? The only possible answer is that the surveillance is not and never has been, for OUR protection, and that the criminals are endorsed by the Authorities.
The entire purpose of this spying, is to prevent people from rising up, to replace this corrupted government. If you still think that the whole surveillance thing is "made up' just to scare people, remember what your "Smart Meter" can do: The Smart Meter can identify/and report what appliances are in your house and how they are used. No. The surveillance is real! Consider; If it is not real then what are the hundreds of billions of Dollars spent on? Is that money all stolen, and if so, why is nobody in jail?
We, today have only two choices: We can pray that those few people with integrity in Government can somehow prevail against the Forces of Evil without our help. Or we can make the conscious choice to band together and fight a dirty battle against these Forces; the governments and the owners. Humans will continue to exist either way. What will be different, is the identity that Humanity has. A Corporate State will be efficient. But, it will not exhibit the values and instincts we cherish. There will be no room for dreams or growth among the lower classes. Freedoms will be limited and bear high penalties.
If all this makes you mad as hell and very afraid: Don't you think it is time you made a stand for your kids and the future of your country?
The very first thing to do, is let everyone know how you feel and that you are not afraid of the monster any more. You will be surprised at how many people feel the same way, but don't dare to say it first. You don't need to be some charismatic orator, you just need to take a stand and communicate it well, Watch what happens when an idea takes off: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXMnDG3QzxE
Also, when you know that you are right, don't compromise. You have nothing to lose. Every decent thing will be taken from you anyway, even if nobody ever protests. Humans were meant for greater things than shoveling food into their mouths and kissing their Master's feet!
