Edward Snowden Asked: Do You Want to be Watched?

This question applies to everyone, inclusive of those watching and ultimately a future for their children being watched and grandchildren having no privacy.

These days I always notice the cameras in lights. I am aware of the monitoring of Smart Meters.  I am conscious of cyber security used as a means of accessing people’s data and breaching privacy and justifying this intrusion by utilizing threats as bonifide reasons.  I am conscious of mass data gathering and I see it as a much greater threat than the cold war or nuclear postures.

I am monitoring government and business who may not be holding the public interest above all interests.  I am in service to humanity.

This video is on Edward Snowden who has risked his life to expose criminality and breaches of civilians privacy and indeed security.

My concern is the lack of empathy, human wellbeing and basic respect of a human’s right to privacy and safety through anonymity.

Spying is the wicked Web Us Weave

I just had a look at Freedom of the Press blog and found Edward Snowden on the Board.  Further exploration of the Board revealed Laura Poitrus, the women filming the Snowden interview in Hong Kong. I felt something about her when I saw the film. She and her colleagues changed the world as they awakened ‘we the people’ to the illegality of citizen surveillance. The courage and wisdom of these journalists deserve the Pulitzer Prize for revealing what is hidden.  I contemplate Julian Assange and keep getting inspiration about his incarceration as I intend that he is protected by a higher power in the public interest. As our world has dark forces actively at work to dismantle true freedom, but they will do it in the name of safety, freedom and security. The wolf comes in sheep’s clothing and appears to be here to save and protect but in actual fact they have prepared strategies to work in the opposite direction. That is why whistle-blowers are vital, as the public have no other source of data. The ones involved in high level surveillance (not in the public interest) hold the technological cards in a game where much is done under the table, out of sight is out of mind.  Yet there are other factors that no-one can control, that is life itself and the purpose of each soul as they walk their path. No-one can predict, control or enslave purpose as life has its own disruptive quality that will rebalance the scales of justice, as nature intends.  I look to nature for my own inspiration and know that the scales are indeed rebalancing, regardless of what appears to be happening.

Laura Poitrus is Praxis films and produced her film called Citizenfour. This is about Edward Snowden, whose life purpose was to awaken humanity to mass surveillance. The irony is the public have to pay for their own enslavement. It is a wicked web they weave. I feel for the spider and the web (internet), I see it as banks of computers, or computer banks as reality.  It appears to glitter as movement to attract the unsuspecting.  They get stuck (addicted) on the web and can’t get off.  The spider waits and makes its way to devour its prey.  The flywheel is a flytrap, it is a web of our own making as we participate.  The truth is the spider needs the fly, the fly does not need the spider.  This is the great secret that is being revealed.  The deeper secret is the spider is the fly. This is revealed in The End.

Always remember: What goes around comes around. As you put out it returns, this is a universal law. Those spying are spied upon, as life is the mirror of their own making. 

Here are excerpts from the website. Most definitely in the public interest.
