Conspiracy Reality: Big Brother is Watching You
It’s not a shocker that the idea of big/brother (government) was watching/spying over the citizenry was rejected for so long. 1) people trusted their government blindly for the most part 2) the term came from a dystopian fictional epic called “1984” by George Orwell.
Seems eerily similar to our own lives, doesn’t it? Our TV’s shape and form beliefs in us that have us act to buy certain things, and live in certain ways.
This name stuck and became a term to refer to the abuse of civil liberties through mass governmental control, and more specifically through surveillance technology like was done in 1984. But mostly, people refereed to the surveillance state with only inklings of evidence and facts about how real Big Brother surveillance was in the world. It may not have been as large in the 1940’s, but it rapidly started to grow after the world war. Orwell saw the changing trends, and projected into the future with his novel 1984, published in 1948.
Snowden released NSA documents detailing how governments around the world were spying on their own citizens, on a scale few could imagine. The NSA collects data from over 3 billions phone calls each day, with more than 200 million text messages stored as well. The NSA also mines data from ISPs and online companies like Facebook, Microsoft, Google, and Apple through the PRISM program.
All of this was done without the need to go to a court to be allowed to do it. And all of this data was available by low-level NSA technicians. Getting approval for spying didn’t even require supervisor approval.
Last year, Snowden announced another program being used called Smurf Suite. This allows governments to take control of your smartphone at any time. Such as turning on your microphone at any time and listening to you, even when you think your phone is off. This recent year, 2016, had the whole “terrorist” and Apple iPhone breaking into issue. Well, the government at least tried to get official court approval to break into iPhones… LOL.
Now, instead of people speaking about reality and sounding like they were “nut jobs” or whatever other dismissive remark used to deny reality people don’t want to honestly look into, people are speaking about big brother surveillance states were being listened to by other people and paid attention for speaking about reality:
But seriously… all people had to do was open their eyes and look around them in the world. If not in their own town, then the region, or their country, or other allied countries. If the USA or Canada doesn’t have enough cameras to make you think about a surveillance state, then all you had to do was look over at the UK and see how many they had.
And the number of cameras the UK had then, was a lot more than other locations, and even with multiple cities combined:
The only way to try to stop people from doing harm, is by setting up a total control surveillance grid, keeping us locked into a prison planet.
There is a reality of mass surveillance, keeping us under lock and key in many respects, holding us in a prison, where many of us are all too eager to act as both prisons and guards of our own cages, not wanting to be free, like those in Plato’s cave that didn’t want to see the substance behind the appearances.
What we end up with, is some people still not accepted reality. They choose to be brain-dead automaton zombies who follow the narratives that the mainstream media and government scripts tell them about reality.
