This is Why Our Anonymity is a Thing of the Past

“Who are you?  Who who, who who…. I really want to know,”

– The Who

ReadyNutrition Guys and Gals, we’re going to discuss the topic of anonymity, and how the current society’s transformation from one of a free public to a totalitarian society is completely dependent on recognizing and knowing you.  Everywhere you walk you’re subjected to an array of CCTV (Closed-circuit Television) cameras.  When you’re in the convenience store, the shopping mall, in a restaurant…all of these cameras are continually capturing your photographs.  No big deal, right?  I mean, you’re a twitter and tweet social butterfly with e-mails, texts, and Facebook posts…what could be the harm in that, you may ask?

Except for the fact that they built a gigantic, $50 billion data collection center for the NSA in Ogden, Utah, larger than 10 football fields.

Where do you think these photos are going?  All of those e-mails, phone calls, text messages?  There was a movie in the late 1990’s entitled Enemy of the State,” starring Wil Smith and Gene Hackman about the surveillance state that was in its infancy back then.  Fast forward to the latest movie with Matt Damon on the Jason Bourne collection series.  Go and see it.  Really.  They can do all of the things shown in the movie: use remote cameras outside of your window to photograph you while using your cell phone and computer to pinpoint you.

Back in 2014 before the ouster of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, there were several anti-government protests outside of the parliamentary building in Kiev.  The cell phone numbers of every individual protesting in the public square were recorded and kept by the government.  Guess what?  That is in Ukraine, not the United States.

An article a few years back entitled Low-tech Solutions to High-Tech Tyranny,” by Brandon Smith gave some guidelines and suggestions on how to defeat IR and cameras.  Remember: those who wear masks for a purpose of disguising themselves (and it’s not Halloween or some carnival ball) are violating federal law.  But there are other things that you can do not to make yourself the visible targets for the data collection of the United States government.

Wear baseball caps and sunglasses.  Break up the outline of your face, your ears, and noticeable facial “quirks” and characteristics peculiar to you.  Do not allow so much of your body to be exposed for photos.  Those who have a lot of tattoos or ones that are in very visible areas would do best to cover them with clothing or with some kind of creams that block their images.  Avoid spending large amounts of time directly underneath the little camera-domes, camera lenses, and recording devices. Also, remember the 6 laws of survival.

Remember: they are even mounting cameras in state and national forests.  Why do you think they are doing this?  For your good or for theirs?  No matter how innocuous it may seem, it has a hidden agenda attached to it.  When the time comes for them to close the nets, you will not escape unless you have a plan.  They will realize their goal, and they are realizing it, with the deployment of cameras, drones, and the use of satellites.  They will realize their goals of tracking your every move with your tracking device…your cellular telephone…that transmits its position every 4 seconds…and your location along with it.

Their goal: the complete audio and video surveillance of every person in the United States. 

An estimate is that worldwide, more than 250 million surveillance cameras have been employed.  All of them have the equivalent of “fusion centers” in their respective countries…all of the countries have data sharing functions.  Advancements by corporations such as Microsoft and Apple have enabled even advertising billboards to use facial recognition programs (just as in the pop-culture movie “Minority Report”) to target consumers and store their images in a database.  A database that can be back-doored and utilized by any government agency with a piece of paper and a lame excuse to do so.

Want some more info on this?  Read Opinion: Facial recognition will soon end your anonymity,” by Tarun Wadhwa, published 6/4/16 that outlines many of the corporations and government entities collaborating on such projects.  We are going to have to monitor what they are doing and come up with new and elaborate ways to interact with society while not being herded into the collective net of information collection.  This will take some time and efforts, and is beyond the scope of this article to address.  We welcome your thoughts and comments on this matter and anything you may have learned to help offset such actions.  Keep fighting that good fight!  JJ out!

    The good news is: There is so much data that they can not even keep track of anything. Remember, this is the government which screws-up even the simplest little things. How do you monitor every phone call, email, internet communication, license plate scan, camera appearance, etc. of 300 million people?

    They may be collecting the data -and that is evil enough on it’s own- but they can not efficiently use it. If they could, then one would have to conclude by the fact that crime still exists and is thriving, that they are then aiding and abetting it.

    Their data collection is another tool in their erection of the dictatorial all-encompassing police state. You know that they are collecting the data, and assume that they are using it, and in your mind, that makes them all-knowing and all-powerful- so you submit more readily.

    In reality, with all this high-tech unconstitutional surveillance the likely know less about the average Joe than they did 75 years ago, when the only interface between the state and you was an Irish cop walking a beat.

    But just to make it all look legit, occasionally they’ll pick some poor slob at random, and persecute ’em for merely having innocently typed some buzzwords which trigger scrutiny. This makes it look even more legit, because you then think that they are really listening to every word you say/type.

    These tactics make the Orwellian state appear bigger and more powerful than it is. When enough people realize this, and realize that the only real power they have is brute foerce; and once enough people wake-up in sufficient numbers to negate the fiends who are willing to take up arms against their neighbors in service to these creepy politicians, maybe this crap will end.

    But as long as they can make you think that they are more omnipresent and omniscient than God Himself, few will resist. This war is 98% smoke and mirrors,, and perceived threat. A psy-op. Step #1 in repelling the enemy, is to accurately assess the reality of the situation vs. the propaganda which they try and make you believe.

    It’s true that there is so much data they cannot make use of all of it at any given time. If you come up on their radar as some kind of subversive they can mine all the relevant information in their data dump, isolating everything you ever did.

  4. DarkStarAz says:

    The new Bourne movie is more of a documentary than a summer action flick. Super soldiers, MK and surveillance – with a few car chases thrown in for good measure.

    you can’t hide from cameras, but you can avoid being the focus of intense government attention.

    You do this by not drawing attention to yourself and looking just like every other person out there. Stay off internet chat boards (I do this, but my name is not Chuck, I have no net access in my name, yes I could be found, but why would someone focus the energy and money needed to find a harmless person? There is no pay off for them.) don’t do and say things that make you memorable.

    No one can hide for long if they are on the governments top-10 list of people to grab.

    But when you look just like the masses you become in effect invisible. I strive to do this.

    Not that I do anything the government would want to watch. I go to work, eat too much food, relax at home, scratch myself in inappropriate places, sleep late on the weekends, pretty boring things for someone to sit in front of a monitor and watch.

    All their surveillance and cameras …. doesnt make sense that ONE PERSON could ever go missing. With a simple bit of correct information of last whereabouts: how can anyone GO MISSING FOREVER? thinkaboutit
