It's so weird to be on this side looking at some of these responses. They just make me want to kinda scream. I see the responses of well if you do
nothing wrong you have nothing to worry about.
Well I have been a law abiding citizen my whole life. I mean really law abiding, no criminal activity, and I have always stayed within the bounds of
the law, and yet my privacy right now is being invaded to such a degree that it's unreal.
My computer, phone, Internet, home, and where I work are monitored. I find that overnight, my city has become one big giant Statsi state. Every corner
has a snitch. On the train, in the mall, the food court, my workplaces, they are crawling with snitches. I don't even know when my city became a
Stasi state, all I know is that most of my fellow citizens are snitching and spying, and that just about everyone is going along with this, without
realising what they are really taking part in. It's disgusting.
I can tell you that you are wrong, you don't have to be a criminal to have these people come and mess up your life. You don't have to be a criminal
to have your life turned into the movie the lives of others. There are hundreds, if not thousands of people around the world, like myself who have
woken up to find that their lives are being interfered with in these little ways, where we are being stalked and monitored by our state, country,
city, whatever. Many have no idea why. Most that I talked to have not done anything that they are aware of that would put them in the way of a covert
Yet our rights, our freedoms have been trampled on, and it's not clear why. So when I hear these opinions about oh only criminals have to worry, I
just want to scream, because they are so ignorant, and it's so where my mentality would have been a year ago, before I became aware of what's
Your rights are being taken away, soon if you express an unpopular opinion, not unlike the school teacher who was fired because she honks for peace,
you could also find yourself, stalked and monitored by the state, or declared an enemy combatant. Most people naively think this could never happen. I
thought and felt that way a year ago. I was where you are, my thinking was the same, and I can tell you that you are dead wrong. There are things
happening that are just so unbelievable, it's hard to express in words.
You do not have to be a criminal, and you should be worried about your rights slipping away, the monitoring, the surveillance. It's all being put in
place for what is coming down the line. A global community, society whatever, controlled by the Powers that be, using us to monitor and spy on us.
There is no other way you could ever hope to control a world population, except by the monitoring that is coming in, be it ccv cameras, verichip, rif
chip, snitches and civilian spies. Just like the movie V 4 Vendetta. They scare you just a little bit, and you give up your rights and your freedoms,
You don't get it, and you most likely won't get it till it's either too late, or till it happens to you, but even if it does, you will most likely
just sit back and comply. That's what these people count on, and have been able to count on, and from what I have seen of human nature, and human
will, they have every right to think and feel this way, and I am just so sad, because mentality wise, less than a year ago, this is where I was also,
and I also would not have listened to those people who tried to explain the fact that it was otherwise.
People will not wake up until they are ready to, I get that, and it's a shame, because we really need to wake up and understand the bigger picture,
because there are so many forces at work, and things happening, that will affect everyone of us, sooner than later. It's all happening seemingly so
slowly, yet you wake up and you are surrounded by living, breathing, mind-warped, zombie snitches, and your whole society has changed over night.
People willingly give up their rights and freedoms, and don't even question when things like this happen.
In a democratic society, you have a right to your privacy and freedom. You have a right for the state to not monitor your calls, your Internet
activity, you have a right. Maybe you have just forgotten that, because you are scared, and they have presented a boogie monster that made you forget
that for a time, but people need to remember that these are the rights we have in a democratic society, and when we loose those rights, we loose who
we were as a people, society and country.
I look around me, and I think this is how it must have been in the former East Germany, but no one seems to be upset or angry about it, or even
questioning it. Most people seem to think it's great. Oh don't get me wrong, I see the ones who don't like what's happening, but they are too
scared, to say or do anything about it. I don't blame them, but if you don't speak up now, then when will you? After you are chipped and tagged, and
your homes are monitored as well as your outside activities?
Google now wants to listen to your conversations that you have in your home, for marketing purposes, via the microphones in your computers, if the
government has not beat them to it, and google also wants to psychologically profile gamers online. It would almost be funny, If I was not so
alarmingly aware of the bigger picture, not only aware of it, but in a place where I can be accepting of the truth of it.
I think ATS is one of the most intelligent places on the Internet, and if some of the people here don't get what's happening, or what's coming down
the line, I wonder if anyone else will?
Anyways as usual a very interesting discussion.
