Recently German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, was targetted by the US and Australia got in diplomatic hot water over Indonesia, the UK tabloid, News of the World, closed its doors and heaven only knows what else is going on especially with the bear and China.
We all know James Bond 007 is alive and well in many countries but the whistle blowing evangelists, Assange and Snowden, have blown the whole thing wide open. These men now have to languish in the dark for revealing what they consider should be in the public interest.
UKUSA is a multilateral agreement for cooperation in signals intelligence [SIGINT] between the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The alliance of intelligence operations is also known as Five Eyes and its longstanding contention that Orwellian laws passed after September 11, 2001, were never about making the “homeland” safer, but about destroying Americans’ and many others including Australia’s, constitutional freedoms.

You may well ask yourself, ‘so what’. ‘Doesn’t affect me’. And it is there you might be wrong. You may shrug it all off because you are a model citizen and hardly consider yourself a terrorist etc etc bla bla. But hang on here a minute. Loosely stated it is a fair guess that 99.9% of us fit that category. So its begs the question why are they spying on us?
Basically the masses are controlled by fear. Goverments lull you into thinking they are your protector, but has to know what’s going on, hence we trust no-one.
It is not only in the domain of governments but also between trade deals and currently in The Hague there is a law suite being brought to bear on Australia for its role in eavesdropping over East Timor and the division of oil and gas reserves.
Evidently, the Indian Government too is not without its own agenda when it comes to keeping a close watch on internet activity. It had recently initiated a nation-wide project called Central Monitoring System (CMS). Though CMS may not be on the massive scale being alleged by net watchers about US’s PRISM, it is nonetheless an equally potent tactic to watch online activities for potential terrorists’ threats.
The world changed dramatically after the 9/11 event. There are many conspiracy theorists claiming it was all part of the New World Order that seemingly has obessed many. But that’s another story! One must not discount the Jesuits for their role in this new order. Where below the word INRI you will find inscribed IUSTUM, NECAR, REGES, IMPIOUS [ It is just to exterminate or annihilate impious or heretical Kings, Governments, or Rulers]. Seen here.
Of course you are free to ‘believe’ that which suits you.Logging on to FB, Twitter or any other social network you may not give a second thought to whether or not you are being watched. It is up to you to decide if that concerns you are not.
Has trust been eroded to such an extent that friends now spy on friends?
