Using radiation from your own home Wi-Fi router, devices outside you home can see what is inside. Leave it to German scientists to dream this one up. Technocrats invent only because they can, not because it is smart or useful. Only over-aggressive authorities will benefit from this technology and citizens will be stripped of their last corner of privacy in their shrinking world.
Total Surveillance Society
As cyber warfare is turned against ordinary citizens, businesses and organizations, it imposes a form of digital slavery that may be unbreakable. Technocrats who created the hackable stuff in the first place had no afterthought of the consequences of their actions.
Remembering that any device connected to the Internet can be hacked without your knowledge by criminals and governments alike, is this device worth the risk? You cannot have your cake and eat it too.
Advertisers embed sound markers in their ads that can be secretly ‘heard’ by other apps. Thus, users are being tracked and analyzed and have absolutely no clue of their loss of privacy. This practice should be immediately outlawed and subject to criminal prosecution. Technocrats have no conscience about using technology to skirt the intent and/or letter of the law.
Pre-crime analysis is a holy grail of surveillance technology, but it is fraught with social and ethical problems. Technocrats build these systems because it is a pre-requisite for Technocracy and also just because they can. All ethical discussion is swept aside.
Personal and digital privacy have merged to become a distant memory for the masses, but has become a privileged asset for the rich who can pay to maintain them. This is digital culture war developing between the ‘haves’ and ‘have-nots’.
Like the U.S. government, the U.K. government is also seeking a back door into Internet programs to spy on people in real-time. Do you understand ‘real-time’? That means continuously, 24×7. This would spell the absolute end of privacy and the beginning of Scientific Dictatorship, or Technocracy. If Governments have ubiquitous powers of surveillance over citizens, does anyone really think they will be benevolent with that data?
The movie The Circle revealed the Technocrat mindset: “Knowing is good. Knowing everything is better.” There is no stopping the NSA, which reports directly to the Director of National Intelligence; in fact, the DNI has total autonomous control over all intelligence agencies in the U.S.
The NSA has been repeatedly slapped down by Congress but it has not deterred them in the slightest. Technocrats are as addicted to data as a doper is to heroin – they can’t stop collecting more data. Further, there is no reason to believe any statistics released from the NSA since they have repeatedly and consistently lied to Congress and the American people.
President Trump has just created and signed a new Executive Order that creates the American Technology Council (ATC). The Council will consist of several Cabinet members and other high-level intelligence officials, such as the Director of National Intelligence, Secretary of Homeland Security and the National Security Advisor.
