Big Brother 2.0: 10 New Ways That the Government Will Be Spying
on You and Controlling Your Behavior
End of the American
Are you ready
for Big Brother 2.0? If you think that the hundreds of ways that
the government watches, monitors, tracks and controls us now are
bad, just wait until you see what is coming. We live in an age when
paranoia is running wild. As technology continues to develop at
an exponential pace, governments all over the globe are going to
discover a multitude of new ways to spy on us and control our behavior.
In a world where everyone is a "potential terrorist", we are told
that things like liberty, freedom and privacy are "luxuries" that
we can no longer afford. We are assured that if we just allow the
government to watch all of us and investigate all of us that somehow
that will keep us all safe. But it isn't just the government that
is watching us. Now we are being taught to spy on one another and
to report any trace of "suspicious activity" to the government immediately.
The entire civilized world is being transformed into one giant prison
grid, and many of the new technologies that are now being introduced
are going to make things even worse.

Are you ready for "electronic skin tattoos"? One team of researchers
has created an extremely thin, extremely flexible "smart skin" that
will open up a whole new world of possibilities. Wearing "skin-mounted
electronics" might seem like a great idea to tech geeks, but
it also could create a whole lot of new problems. The following
is how an article in
one UK newspaper described this new breakthrough....
electronic system" relies on a highly flexible electrical circuit
composed of snake-like conducting channels that can bend and stretch
without affecting performance. The circuit is about the size of
a postage stamp, is thinner than a human hair and sticks to the
skin by natural electrostatic forces rather than glue.
Yes, this kind
of technology would be a great way to connect wirelessly to the
Internet and it would be helpful for doctors that need to monitor
their patients, but the potential for abuse is also there.
Once this type
of technology becomes widespread, governments will be able to monitor
the location and activities of their citizens like never before.
this type of technology could one day become mandated by governments.
For example, someday you may be required to have an "electronic
skin tatoo" in order to prove your identity or to participate in
Also, it is
not too far of a stretch to imagine that "skin-mounted electronics"
could be used to control large populations. Just remember, if you
connect yourself physically to the Internet, that also means that
the Internet is connected to you.
According to a shocking document obtained by Oath Keepers, the FBI
is now instructing store owners to report many new forms of "suspicious
activity" to them. According
to the document, "suspicious activity" now includes....
- paying with
a hand or fingers
- making "extreme
weatherproofed ammunition or match containers
meals ready to eat
night vision devices, night flashlights or gas masks
to WorldNetDaily, this document is part of a "series of brochures"
that will be distributed "to farm supply stores, gun shops, military
surplus stores and even hotels and motels."
The U.S. military has developed an invisible "pain ray" that is
remarkably effective. The following is how a recent article posted
described this weapon....
like a weapon out of Star Wars. The Active
Denial System, or ADS, works like an open-air microwave oven,
projecting a focused beam of electromagnetic radiation to heat
the skin of its targets to 130 degrees. This creates an intolerable
burning sensation forcing those in its path to instinctively flee

already being used in American prisons. How long will it be
before it is used on the general population?
Be careful about what you put up on Facebook or Twitter. Law enforcement
agencies all over the globe are now focusing on social media as
never before. For example, the NYPD has just created a
special "social media" unit dedicated to looking for criminals
on Facebook and Twitter.
Facial recognition technology has now come of age. With the millions
of security cameras that are going up all over the world, such technology
is proving to be very useful for law enforcement authorities. In
fact, police in London are using it to track down people that were
involved in the London riots. The following is an excerpt from
a recent CBC report that described these efforts....
recognition technology being considered for London's 2012 Games
is getting a workout in the wake of Britain's riots, with officers
feeding photographs of suspects through Scotland Yard's newly
updated face-matching program.
technology is rapidly going to become part of our everyday lives.
In fact, now
even Facebook is using it. Eventually it is going to become
very difficult to avoid the reach of this technology.
"Smart meters" are going into homes all over North America and Europe.
These smart meters monitor your home every single minute of every
single day and they transmit very sophisticated data about your
personal behavior back to the utility company.
already being used by police all over the United States in drug
cases. If a smart meter catches you using an "unusual" amount of
energy there is a good chance that your home will be raided.
Parliament has set a goal of having smart meters in the homes of
percent of all electricity consumers by the year 2020, and Barack
Obama is working very hard to get them into as many American homes
as he can.
Our children are being trained to accept being under surveillance
almost constantly. For example, the U.S. Department of Agriculture
is spending huge amounts of money to
install surveillance cameras in the cafeterias of U.S. public
schools so that government control freaks can closely monitor what
our children are eating.
Perhaps you thought that only Tom Cruise had to worry about "pre-crime".
Well, now "pre-crime" is popping up in the real world too. The Florida
State Department of Juvenile Justice has announced that it will
begin using analysis software to
predict crime by young delinquents and will place "potential
offenders" in specific prevention and education programs.
to the ACLU, state police in Michigan are now using "extraction
devices" to download data from the cellphones of motorists that
they pull over. This is taking place even if those pulled over are
not accused of doing anything wrong.
is how an article on
CNET News described the capabilities of these "extraction devices"....
sold by a company called Cellebrite, can download text messages,
photos, video, and even GPS data from most brands of cell phones.
The handheld machines have various interfaces to work with different
models and can even bypass security passwords and access some
LRAD sound cannons are already been used by law enforcement authorities
to disperse large crowds inside the United States. So how much "damage"
can sound do? Well, it turns out that sound can actually do a whole
lot of damage. The following is how Alternet
describes these cruel weapons....
Long Range Acoustic Device, or LRAD, built by American Technology
Corporation, focuses and broadcasts sound over ranges of up to
hundreds of yards. LRAD has been around for years, but Americans
first took notice when police used it in Pittsburgh to ward off
protesters at the 2009
G-20 summit. It is generally used in two
ways: as a megaphone to order protesters to disperse; or,
if they disobey, as an “ear-splitting siren” to drive them away.
While LRAD may not be deadly, it can
permanently damage hearing, depending on how it’s used.
cannons do not discriminate. When they are being used to disperse
protesters, any innocent bystanders in the area will be affected
as well. If anyone gets too close to an LRAD sound cannon while
it is in use, permanent damage can result. Small children and the
elderly are particularly vulnerable. Sadly, the use of LRAD sound
cannons is becoming more common. In fact, they have even been used
to break up
college block parties.
So is this
the kind of world that you want to live in?
Do you want
your children and grandchildren to live in a world where liberty
and freedom are all but forgotten?
is headed toward a very dark place. These "Big Brother" technologies
are going to become even more pervasive and even more oppressive.
If this trend is not stopped now, someday these technologies will
get into some very evil hands, and then all hell will be unleashed.
