“There will come a time when it isn’t ‘They’re spying on me through my phone’ anymore. Eventually, it will be ‘My phone is spying on me.’” ― Philip K. Dick
If ever Americans sell their birthright, it will be for the promise of expediency and comfort delivered by way of blazingly fast Internet, cell phone signals that never drop a call, thermostats that keep us at the perfect temperature without our having to raise a finger, and entertainment that can be simultaneously streamed to our TVs, tablets and cell phones.
Likewise, if ever we find ourselves in bondage, we will have only ourselves to blame for having forged the chains through our own lassitude, laziness and abject reliance on internet-connected gadgets and gizmos that render us wholly irrelevant.
Indeed, while most of us are consumed with our selfies and trying to keep up with what our so-called friends are posting on Facebook, the megacorporation Google has been busily partnering with the National Security Agency (NSA), the Pentagon, and other governmental agencies to develop a new “human” species, so to speak.
In other words, Google—a neural network that approximates a global brain—is fusing with the human mind in a phenomenon that is called “singularity,” and they’ve hired transhumanist scientist Ray Kurzweil to do just that. Google will know the answer to your question before you have asked it, Kurzweil said. “It will have read every email you will ever have written, every document, every idle thought you’ve ever tapped into a search-engine box. It will know you better than your intimate partner does. Better, perhaps, than even yourself.”
But here’s the catch: the NSA and all other government agencies will also know you better than yourself. As William Binney, one of the highest-level whistleblowers to ever emerge from the NSA said, “The ultimate goal of the NSA is total population control.”
The Military Industrial Complex is moving on, but the fears expressed by an American General and President as he departed from giving his last speech to the nation ( a speech that clearly made little impact on the illusionary reality being constructed for the nation’s people) will not die, they will simply be replaced and in a far more insidious, invasive and destructive manner–at least to our own freedoms and humanity. From planes and tanks to the cyber world, robotics, and leading edge technologies as of yet imagined the power of the government purse will bend the will of all from Google to Apple and beyond. The State will never be denied and thus the MIC becomes the MS & TC, the Military Surveillance And Technology Complex. Awesome will be the power of the State and servile sheep we will all become. What is the purpose of these toys? Are the so fulfilling to us that we will sacrifice our remaining freedoms and privacies to the State so we can be numbed into a drugged, soma-like mental condition and truly become slaves without soul, without purpose?
