The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is continuing its assault on the privacy of Americans, but each invasion not only destroys privacy, but allows for the constant surveillance of all of us; and without cause or warrant.
The FBI is attempting with a new 1 billion dollar program, to track every American by facial identification captured by the massive network of cameras in the U.S. This is being called the Next Generation Identification Program.
The FBI is working with some of the usual culprits; corporations that survive only due to taxpayer monies and war; those like Lockheed Martin and IBM. These fascist partnerships serve to enrich these corporations at the expense of the people, and to extend the arm of surveillance, and therefore the power of government.
This is all being done under the guise of reducing terrorism and criminal activities, but that could only be possible if it were the private sector monitoring the real criminals and terrorists; those that reside in the U.S. federal and state governments.
With cameras now installed almost everywhere, including in our communication devices, our computers, our television sets, on many streets across the country, in malls and businesses nationwide, as well as in space, what chance do any of us have to escape the eyes of government if this program is allowed to go forward? This network modernization is to be inclusive of local, state, and federal agencies, so we will be watched no matter where we live or travel. Privacy will become a thing of the past, and the police state will monitor each and every one of us, thereby gaining control of our very lives.
This system allows the government to apply facial identification to any image source, with extremely sophisticated technology, and this technology can read a single image, even in enormous crowds. Nothing will be hidden, nothing will be private, and everything we do will be monitored by the “State.”
George Orwell’s 1984 has already come to fruition, and now is advancing to levels even he could not have imagined. Where will it end if not stopped by sane minds? It can only end in a government controlled state; one that would rule over a nation of slaves afraid of their every action. That is where we’re headed, and at lighting speed!
