    I highly recommend viewing the interview with Aman Jabbi concerning the surveillance and data collection technology increasingly being used to manipulate and control people.

    Share your thoughts.



    ”Aman Jabbi is a native of India and an engineer who worked in Silicon Valley for 25 years, co-inventor of two cellphone camera apps. He emigrated to the United States in 1988 because he admired America’s culture of liberty and ingenuity.”


    “We must recognize that these are the very same tools and products that make our busy 21st century lives so convenient, so efficient and entertaining. And so we buy them on cue, we upgrade them on cue, we hand over our biometric data on cue, until one day we will wake up and realize we have convenienced ourselves and entertained ourselves right into a digital gulag from which there is no escape.

    This is how the globalists intend on breaking the backs of free Americans. They will do it through our finances, through the healthcare system and through the entertainment systems. Digital ID cards disguised as “health passports” or “SMART Health Cards,” will be required to work a job, to access the Internet and the coming digital bank accounts or digital wallets. The convergence of all these systems will make sure, in the words of U.N. Agenda 2030, “no person gets left behind.”

    By the time most people wake up and see that they have walked into a trap, it will be too late. They will have all your data, they will know everything about you, your strengths, your weaknesses, your vulnerabilities.

    As Jabbi says, “You can deny reality but you can’t deny the consequences.”

    The choice is simple. Will you choose to live as a slave in a digital concentration camp, or as a free human being in full possession of your bodily autonomy and your free will?”

    Well, I guess we could always go back to typewriters and plain old telephone service - like in the old days. I suppose I could adapt, but to be honest, I don't really worry about all this surveillance technology. I don't really have anything to hide. And my life is really boring, too boring for Big Brother to be interested.

    How convenient it is to share ones data gets apparent when you don't. I'm a bit paranoid and that means I have to work harder to achieve the same things. As I have no Google account, most apps are not available to me. Not being on facebook, whatsapp or Twitter limits my modes of communication. I have to physically go to the bank for my (few) transactions. People on ebay don't want to trade with me as I have no paypal.

    I 100% agree...and too late to stop...unless we start a total protest (hence I refuse them to force inject me)

    From your article:
    "Most of us spend way too much time focused on the wrong things. We talk endlessly about what’s going on in Washington when we’ve invited the beast system right into our homes, even get it injected into our own bodies"

    Mega Drive- “Zero Point Non Response”

    It is tragic to me how plugged in people are. It is like they willingly submit themselves and surrender their precious freedoms and privacy for the sake of convenience and entertainment. Opportunity passes them by, youth fades away, and time drags them into a future they wish had not come so soon. They become so shackled and wired into the system that by the time they finally look in the mirror their dreams have been lost forever.

    To all forgotten and abandoned dreams… May you find a way back into the hearts of those who’ve given up hope, and reignite their passion and ambition.

    Things have a habit of looking innocuous or good and then becoming embedded into our lives and even when the down side is seen we don't want to get rid of things, just make laws to try to control them while they continue to do harm.
    Greed of companies and our enjoyment and comfort and convenience is why we keep them and let them do harm. Those who do make a personal stand against them are seen as nutty but really they are probably the ones who see that our king really has no clothes.
    This new thing which we have been looking at for a while now and have seen many of the potential problems, seems to be promising us the same things associated with the mark of the beast in Revelation, and more.

    Of course. It's only going to get worse as tech is used and developed leading to a future dystopia.

    You know you can input fake info to create a Google account, right?
    Also, you know that even if you don't share your info with paypal, the bank where you have an account is gonna have it, right?
    So what's the point?

    Our dreams have been lost because we lost some freedom and privacy?

    I don't know about you but my dreams revolve around having a comfortable and safe life, where I have easy access to quality health care and no worries about getting mugged. Nothing to do with unlimited freedom/privacy.

    You know that that is in violation to the TOS of Google, right?
    The bank is here in Germany and highly regulated. They have ample incentive to be careful with my data.

    I have studied and worked in computer science. I know how a bunch of innocuous data can be combined into workable information you don't want to have out there.

    Yep. So what?

    Banks tend to be highly regulated. But your data is still out there.

    Do you consider things which are actually taking place to be conspiracy theories?

    I actually don’t think there is too much we can do to stop the progress of surveillance technology, but it’s probably good to be aware of what’s happening. And I don’t think it’s a matter of not having anything to hide because the goal of the system goes beyond that...

    “If you know you’re not a bad guy, but you enjoy convenience, it’s tempting to say to yourself, “I have nothing to hide.” If you still have those thoughts, you have a very naïve view of how these systems work and what their ultimate agenda entails.

    It’s not just about catching bad guys and bad people.

    While they can be used for that purpose, there is much more going on.

    The data they are gathering on you is considered valuable for one reason and one reason only: to get you to change your behavior and submit to the beast system – a system that knows where you are at all times, what you are doing, what you are spending your money on, your time on, even what you are thinking.

    By giving them your data, you give them the ability to monitor and assess your behavior, which can now be converted into a social credit score. That score is then used to determine what privileges you qualify for and which ones you don’t in the new slave society.”
