Prepared to be flamed but here goes.
The Spanish American writer and philosopher George Santayana once said:
"Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it."
Are we a species intelligent and advanced enough to learn from history yet?
Or will we fail and repeat History,as we have seemed to do in the past over and over again?
We seem to be creating a global society based upon full spectrum surveillance,a global biometric ID system,where everything from purchases,library
books,food,driving records and habits, and medical prescriptions are all directley linked to Government databases.
The UK Government are putting in place the ANPR(automatic number plate recognition)system,which will track in real time,ALL cars around the UK.Look at
their contractors site here:
These databases are then shared,without any consultation of the public,to other Governments worldwide.
Including to Governments who routinely censor the internet(as we all will soon ,more below),torture suspected Christians and political dissidents,and
sell their freshly harvested organs for state profit.You know who I mean.
At the same time,the once free Internet-that limitless bucket of knowledge(when properly used)is about to be carved up by the big corporations and
Stalinised,basically-what the the companies allow,will be allowed on the Net,whilst alternative viewpoints and investigative journalism will be off
limits...Those darned investigative types are so much of an irritant to the companies,after all.
Looks fun the NEOnet don`t it?
How will ATS fare?
And then we have the USA torture bill,recently signed amid cheers(yes i said cheers).
Well,at least its offical now.
So now those methods of torture so well developed by the early Soviet Union such as sleep deprivation,simulated drowning,being made to stand/sit still
for days,cold treatment,hot treatment and prolonged solitary confinement are now acceptable by the US government.
And they are being discussed positively by some sections of the media.
We will soon all be ensnared by a Identity system that Stalin could have only dreamed of.The "internal passport" system of Soviet times did not come
close to what they have in store for us.
Instead of NKVD on street corners,in bars,shops and factories-we have microphones,speakers,computers,UAVs,secret listening stations,co ordinated Psy
ops via ALL media.
The world that the Author of the book "The Gulag Archipelligo" risked his life to share with us,in order to prevent its reoccurance, is inching back
into fashion it seems.Only this time it is going global.
And this time the Governments of the free world are the perpetrators.
Are we repeating history?
Can anyone now deny the fact that the War on Terror is being actively manipulated to force us,the good people of the world, into a corporate
controlled dystopian nightmare future,where our every move is logged by paranoid Governments?
Why are they so Paranoid to wish to track every soul who walks the earth?
Why use technology developed to track crimminals to track the innocent?
