10 Ways We Are Being Tracked, Traced, and Databased

Are technological advances infringing on our right to privacy?

 

Published: Jul. 10, 2010 – The Activist Post

The war on terror is a worldwide endeavor that has spurred massive investment into the global surveillance industry – which now seems to be becoming a war on “liberty and privacy.”  Given all of the new monitoring technology being implemented, the uproar over warrantless wiretaps now seems moot.  High-tech, first-world countries  are being tracked, traced, and databased, literally around every corner.  Governments, aided by private companies, are gathering a mountain of information on average citizens who so far seem willing to trade liberty for supposed security.  Here are just some of the ways the matrix of data is being collected:

  • Internet — Internet browsers are recording your every move forming detailed cookies on your activities.  The NSA has been exposed as having cookies on their site that don’t expire until 2035.  Major search engines know where you surfed last summer, and online purchases are databased, supposedly for advertising and customer service uses.  IP addresses are collected and even made public.  Controversial websites can be flagged internally by government sites, as well as re-routing all traffic to block sites the government wants to censor. It has now been fully admitted that social networks provide NO privacy to users while technologies advance for real-time social network monitoring is already being used.  The Cybersecurity Act attempts to legalize the collection and exploitation of your personal information.  Apple’s iPhone also has browsing data recorded and stored.  All of this despite the overwhelming opposition to cybersurveillance by citizens.
  • RFID — Forget your credit cards which are meticulously tracked, or the membership cards for things so insignificant as movie rentals which require your SSN.  Everyone has Costco, CVS, grocery-chain cards, and a wallet or purse full of many more.  RFID  “proximity cards” take tracking to a new level in uses ranging from loyalty cards, student ID, physical access, and computer network access.  Latest developments include an RFID powder developed by Hitachi, for which the multitude of uses are endless — perhaps including tracking hard currency so we can’t even keep cash undetected. (Also see microchips below).
  • Traffic cameras – License plate recognition has been used to remotely automate duties of the traffic police in the United States, but have been proven to have dual use in England such as to mark activists under the Terrorism Act.  Perhaps the most common use will be to raise money and shore up budget deficits via traffic violations, but uses may descend to such “Big Brother” tactics as monitors telling pedestrians not to litter as talking cameras already do in the UK.
  • Computer cameras and microphones — The fact that laptops — contributed by taxpayers — spied on public school children (at home) is outrageous.  Years ago Google began officially to use computer “audio fingerprinting” for advertising uses.  They have admitted to working with the NSA, the premier surveillance network in the world.  Private communications companies already have been exposed routing communications to the NSA.  Now, keyword tools — typed and spoken — link to the global security matrix.
  • Public sound surveillance — This technology has come a long way from only being able to detect gunshots in public areas, to now listening in to whispers for dangerous “keywords.” This technology has been launched in Europe to “monitor conversations” to detect “verbal aggression” in public places.  Sound Intelligence is the manufacturer of technology to analyze speech, and their website touts how it can easily be integrated into other systems.
  • Biometrics — The most popular biometric authentication scheme employed for the last few years has been Iris Recognition. The main applications are entry control, ATMs and Government programs. Recently, network companies and governments have utilized biometric authentication including fingerprint analysis, iris recognition, voice recognition, or combinations of these for use in National identification cards.
  • Microchips — Microsoft’s HealthVault and VeriMed partnership is to create RFID implantable microchips.  Microchips for tracking our precious pets is becoming commonplace and serves to condition us to accept putting them in our children in the future.  The FDA has already approved this technology for humans and is marketing it as a medical miracle, again for our safety.
  • Facial recognition Anonymity in public is over.  Admittedly used at Obama’s campaign events, sporting events, and most recently at the G8/G20 protests in Canada. This technology is also harvesting data from Facebook images and surely will be tied into the street “traffic” cameras.
All of this is leading to Predictive Behavior Technology — It is not enough to have logged and charted where we have been; the surveillance state wants to know where we are going through psychological profiling.  It’s been marketed for such uses as blocking hackers.  Things seem to have advanced to a point where a truly scientific Orwellian world is at hand.  It is estimated that computers know to a 93% accuracy where you will be, before you make your first move.   Nanotech is slated to play a big role in going even further as scientists are using nanoparticles to directly influence behavior and decision making.
Many of us are asking:  What would someone do with all of this information to keep us tracked, traced, and databased?  It seems the designers have no regard for the right to privacy and desire to become the Controllers of us all.

    The biggest problem we face is the fact that most Western nations including North America have never lived under fascist regiemes before.

    That is why the people of Chile, Argentina, and Greece, as examples, are way ahead of everyone else. What do they have? They have a resolve to fight the Jackboots in the streets, they will fight and die rather than have their families and themselves tortured and mutilated by executionaires in Pinochet-style torture prisons.

    We are not unaware of what fascism is and how it opperates for it is everywhere around us. Is this how you want to die? In an American/Canadian gulag? Go back and see how the Japs treated pow’s, would you have surrendered? Or would you have fought tooth and nail and taken as many out with you as possible?

    I see the Greeks protesting with molotov cocktails without any regard to restraint, and I know that it is because they know the power of the jackboot when it is able to isolate the helpless in dank torture chambers and then call the relatives to listen to the “sessions” of their loved ones over the phone. It is not worth not fighting for, it has to be no surrender all the way.

    We have already lost the battle. We are on the Bataan penisula with MacArthur. With hindsight, are you going to surrender???

    Their systems need to be bombarded and overloaded with these “key words” and such. We need to get organized in “cyberspace” and start crashing their systems. The system is computer based, any computer system will crash if it is overloaded with data. Instead of fearing to give them the data, we need to do the opposite, give them so much data their evil computers crash again and again.

    Just remember, once the jackboots are in power and control their terror tactics will commense and all restraint will be removed. All citizens of these countries will be in terrible danger. You will not even be allowed to believe in what is sacred to you.
    They will harvest your bodies and the bodies of your children for vital organs and hormones. Your children will be given to the paedophiles in the highest government offices of the land, you will never see your children when the jackboots come. Ask the people of Argentina about the children.

    These illegal, anti-life, Satanic world systems can go fuck themselves. We do not have to accept any of this propaganda crap. How many stun-guns will it take to knock out everyone on the earth who is against this tyranny?? And know this, if you go along because of your fear, they will take and torture your little ones in front of you (like they are doing in the M.E.), they will do this regardless of your submission or resolve.

    Is anyone even listening? I doubt it, but I’ve made my resolve a long time ago because I grew up with the greatest words in the English language, NO SURRENDER!

    many thanks, & yes we are definitely listening
