The Most Important Surveillance Story You Will Ever See For Years Just Went Online

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A "fortress-like" AT&T building located in eight major American cities have played a central role in another huge National Security Agency (NSA) spying program.

  • Reflect On:

    Why are they monitoring us so heavily? Is it really for 'national security reasons, or is some other agenda playing out here? What does learning this allow us to realize about our world?

A few days ago, the publication of an explosive story that should have shaken up the mainstream media world, didn’t. It was done by the Intercept, which revealed for the first time publicly how “fortress-like” AT&T buildings located in eight major American cities have played a central role in another huge National Security Agency (NSA) spying program “that has monitored billions of emails, phone calls, and online chats passing across U.S. territory.”

Edward Snowden’s reaction on Twitter was quite appropriate:

The most important surveillance story you will see for years just went online, revealing how @ATT became the internet’s biggest enemy, secretly collaborating against its customers and partners to destroy your privacy.

This information shouldn’t really come as a surprise, there have been more than enough leaks from whistle-blowers like Snowden that goes to show just how much information and data they collect on the global citizenry. It’s literally unbelievable  — what’s even more startling is the fact that information like this, prior to the Snowden leaks, was actually considered a ‘conspiracy theory’ by many, despite the fact that the ‘theory’ was quite legit already and had a lot of evidence behind it to expose it. This begs the question, why do we have to wait for something to become acknowledged by the mainstream in order for us to accept it?

The Intercept‘s detailed report—based on a large body of evidence that includes public records, classified NSA documents, and interviews with former AT&T employees—shows how the telecom giant has willingly helped the NSA collect the data of its own customers and those of other companies, thanks to its “unique relationships with other phone and internet providers.”
“It’s eye-opening and ominous the extent to which this is happening right here on American soil,” Elizabeth Goitein, co-director of the Liberty and National Security Program at the Brennan Center for Justice, told The Intercept in an interview. “It puts a face on surveillance that we could never think of before in terms of actual buildings and actual facilities in our own cities, in our own backyards.”
These surveillance leaks, are one of the multiple examples existing show the unlimited power and control the government has, along with the corporations and financial institutions that control it.

So, Why All of The Spying?

As a result of all of these leaks, and the ones prior, it begs the question, why? Well, interventions as such, and others like the infiltration on Iraq, for which 9/11 was used as a justification,  have all come from a justification from those who are doing, in this case, the US government and its allies.  A great quote comes to mind that hammers home the point I’m trying to make, which is backed up by actual evidence and sources, it’s something we’ve covered for a long time, and something the world becomes more aware of every single year, that we are being bamboozled, so to speak.

The only way to justify mass surveillance is to have a very high level of national security alert. More problems, more fear, more manipulation and more brainwashing of human consciousness/perception manipulation play a key role.

The statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception. – Mark Twain

What’s the justification for mass surveillance? Precisely this, a heightened national security state. I mean, with terrorist attacks, school shootings, violence and more on the rise, (or at least we are presented with that perception, and it seems to be pushed hard onto the populace), how could we not keep an eye on the global population right? For our safety?

When was the last time authorities like intelligence agencies taken these initiatives for our safety? Did we invade Syria for our safety? Did we invade Iraq for our safety and to bring democracy to those countries? Or did we simply create events, by ourselves, in order to justify the infiltration of these countries for ulterior motives? Have we been spying on the global population for the same reasons? Or are there ulterior motives for spying and collecting mass amounts of data on people?

According to Intercept reporters Ryan Gallagher and Henrik Moltke, who bylined Monday’s story, eight AT&T facilities—known as “peering sites”—in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. “serve a specific function, processing AT&T customers’ data and also carrying large quantities of data from other internet providers.”

Many whistleblowers, like Snowden, and William Binney have expressed that this massive data collection is not really for national security purposes, but for corporations to take advantage of marketing, our wants, what we think we need, what we like, and more, basically for more profit. Others have expressed the idea that, in a society where going against the grain seems, or speaking up on certain topics seems to be extremely taboo, if ‘they’ want to, they can put and upload as much ‘dirt’ on you as they could possibly want.

I’ll let you decide…

Take William Binney, for example, he’s a former high-ranking intelligence official with the NSA. He’s one of the highest placed intelligence officials to blow the whistle from the NSA, and he made headlines when he resigned in 2001 after 9/11, having worked for more than three decades for the agency.  He was a leading code-breaker against the Soviet Union during the Cold war and was repelled by the United States’ massive surveillance programs.

Starting in 2002 when he let the public know of a system ( ‘trailblazer’) intended to analyze data carried on communication networks (like the internet). He exposed the agencies eavesdropping program and has faced harassment from the FBI, NSA and more. He has been in and out of the courtroom ever since he decided to resign and blow the whistle.

According to him, the goal here is simple, and that’s “total population control.”  He also said the same thing in this interview.

It’s quite reminiscent of George Orwell’s 1984.

Whats The Good News?

It’s not all doom and gloom. The fact that this type of thing has been an integral part of the human experience long before whistleblowers told us, is a good sign because at least we are aware of it, and that’s a start. As a result of these perception changes, and the way the masses view the human experience alone, acts as a strong catalyst for action to be taken and changes to start taking place. But it all starts with knowing, instead of ridiculing and brushing truths that conflict with our belief systems, under the rug…The very first step to changing a problem is to first recognize that problem, and we are still in that process.

Having worked in this field for almost a decade, it’s quite amazing to see what’s taking place, and how many people are having those ‘ah-hah’ moments. The quest for world domination does not sit well with the citizenry, and democracy has become nothing but an illusion, with political parties serving the interest of their ‘owners,’ not the people.

The more people recognize what’s really happening in our world, the more people will take a stand and do whatever they can to change it. This is happening now, in several different ways, and it starts with you and me.

The more we try, and the more we ‘wake up,’ the closer we get to actions and ripple effects that will change our world.

You can also deactivate settings on the internet, and take whatever steps you can find to heighten your privacy. That being said, it seems like our TV, phones, radio’s, and several other gadgets are all “in on it” so to speak.

It’s another great example of how the global elite, and the decision makers, are really not making decisions with humanities and planet Earth’s best interest in mind. How many examples do we have to see of the government implementing actions that go completely against the will of the population…? Still, think we live in a democracy?

Elon Musk And Over 2400 AI Scientists Sign Pledge Against Killer Robots

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    More than 2,400 AI scientists and researchers have signed a pledge which intends to deter military firms and nations from building lethal autonomous weapon systems (LAWS).

  • Reflect On:

    Are we as individuals, working together on shared concerns for all humans on the planet, starting to see the power we have to effect positive change?

It is not an uncommon story in the history of science and technology: the most brilliant and innovative minds of their time discover, create, and invent technologies that can have hugely positive benefits for mankind as a whole. Inevitably, the largest and wealthiest ‘consumer’ of such technologies is the Military-Industrial Complex, and the main ways these technologies are produced in our world are as tools of control, warfare, and human suffering.

In earlier times scientists and inventors didn’t have much say in how their work was used, and could often be persuaded that their use in military applications was actually for the benefit of humankind. Today, those naive days are gone, and the landscape is different. Some of the most prominent minds that are creating advanced technologies are starting to speak out more and more about how their work is being used in the world.

More Than 2400 Signatories

Elon Musk of SpaceX and Demis Hassabis at Google DeepMind are among more than 2,400 signatories to the pledge which intends to deter military firms and nations from building lethal autonomous weapon systems, also known as LAWS. The signatories are scientists who specialize in artificial intelligence, (AI) and have declared that they will not participate in the development or manufacture of robots that can identify and attack people without human oversight. The pledge was created by the Future of Life Institute:

LETHAL AUTONOMOUS WEAPONS PLEDGE

Artificial intelligence (AI) is poised to play an increasing role in military systems. There is an urgent opportunity and necessity for citizens, policymakers, and leaders to distinguish between acceptable and unacceptable uses of AI.

In this light, we the undersigned agree that the decision to take a human life should never be delegated to a machine. There is a moral component to this position, that we should not allow machines to make life-taking decisions for which others – or nobody – will be culpable. There is also a powerful pragmatic argument: lethal autonomous weapons, selecting and engaging targets without human intervention, would be dangerously destabilizing for every country and individual. Thousands of AI researchers agree that by removing the risk, attributability, and difficulty of taking human lives, lethal autonomous weapons could become powerful instruments of violence and oppression, especially when linked to surveillance and data systems. Moreover, lethal autonomous weapons have characteristics quite different from nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, and the unilateral actions of a single group could too easily spark an arms race that the international community lacks the technical tools and global governance systems to manage. Stigmatizing and preventing such an arms race should be a high priority for national and global security.

We, the undersigned, call upon governments and government leaders to create a future with strong international norms, regulations and laws against lethal autonomous weapons. These currently being absent, we opt to hold ourselves to a high standard: we will neither participate in nor support the development, manufacture, trade, or use of lethal autonomous weapons. We ask that technology companies and organizations, as well as leaders, policymakers, and other individuals, join us in this pledge.

The Power Of Public Shaming

The pledge hopes to amount to more than just words. In calling on countries to legislate laws, technology companies to not accept contracts, and individuals to voice their support against lethal autonomous weapons, they hope to sway public opinion overwhelmingly against LAWS, and in doing so shame any person or group who would go ahead with its development. There is some precedent for this approach working, according to Yoshua Bengio, an AI pioneer at the Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms:

This approach actually worked for land mines, thanks to international treaties and public shaming, even though major countries like the US did not sign the treaty banning landmines. American companies have stopped building landmines.

The timing of this pledge is crucial. The military is one of the largest funders and adopters of AI technology. With advanced computer systems, robots can fly missions over hostile terrain, navigate on the ground, and patrol under seas. More sophisticated weapon systems are in the pipeline. Toby Walsh, a professor of AI at the University of New South Wales in Sydney who signed the pledge, had this to say about it:

We need to make it the international norm that autonomous weapons are not acceptable. A human must always be in the loop.

We cannot stop a determined person from building autonomous weapons, just as we cannot stop a determined person from building a chemical weapon. But if we don’t want rogue states or terrorists to have easy access to autonomous weapons, we must ensure they are not sold openly by arms companies.

Collective Consciousness Rising

This pledge is but one example of how people are implicating themselves in the future of the planet. No longer are we waiting on the sidelines and leaving decisions up to corporations, the military, or our political leaders. When we identify ourselves not as a race, culture or nation but as a planet, where all of humankind is considered part of the family, then we get to have greater access to the power of our collective consciousness. Once we harness that power, no initiative that is for the benefit of humanity is beyond our abilities.

The Flying Humanoid Phenomena Of Mexico

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There have been multiple reports over the years of bizzare activity in the skies of Mexico. People have claimed to be seeing flying humanoids in the sky. Though not fully verified as to what onlookers have seen, it is clear what they believe.

  • Reflect On:

    Experiences & stories such as this bring us to the question most of us have heard before, 'Are we alone?' What is the true nature of our reality? More importantly, what could this mean for us as a collective, as humanity?

Throughout time in mainstream media and the entertainment industry we have been programmed to see beings outside of human as dangerous, and for the most part there is a good chunk of fear-based propaganda to remind us of the potential danger if we were to encounter a visit.

Though new films and shows have been coming forth with a different perspective & narrative and new space forces are being declared, it is interesting to question the why. Stories of otherworldly visitors have been spread for centuries, and it is time we closely examine them with an open mind.

In this specific instance, an officer driving his patrol car in Mexico has seen a dark shape that he verified was, in fact, a “flying humanoid entity” which he described looked like a floating old woman, dressed in all black with dark skin and eyes that were “just black sockets, without eyelids.”

This startling apparition then apparently flew over to hover right in front of the vehicle and the stunned occupant within. He could see it better at this time, and noted that it was a hideous old woman that “resembled a witch.” Apparently annoyed by the car’s high beams, the witch then reportedly covered her face with some sort of cloak and then flew right into the vehicle’s windshield, causing the dumbfounded officer to go speeding back in reverse. He would explain the terrifying events like this:

As soon as I realized it was a kind of woman being, or a witch, very strange standing there trying to cover her face, she threw herself against my car very fast, falling on the car and hitting the windshield. She was flying very fast and it took only a second to hit the windshield glass. I was so shocked by this action that I put the car in reverse and pushed the accelerator trying to get away while requesting backup assistance by radio.

It was a woman with big black eyes, everything was black, no eyelids. Her skin was dark brown and her expression was horrible. She was furiously trying to get me with her claws while I was running away in reverse calling desperately for backup assistance to any units around.

There Is More Than One Type Of Intelligence

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The current model of schooling puts emphasis on one particular type of education, which only covers a small percentage of the population of children. It also educates children in batches, assuming they are all ready for the same thing.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it time to reevaluate this method of schooling to be more inclusive to children with all types of other intellect and creative ability? Is our education system even bringing out the full potential in our children?

What was your experience in school like? Did you hate it or love it? Were you an all ‘A’ student and found it to be a breeze or did you struggle with understanding some of the subjects you were being taught?

The fact of the matter is, our modern education system is not catering to students as individuals, but lumping them all into the same category and expecting them to succeed, even at things they are not particularly good at or even interested in, while those who got the highest test scores were praised and reminded of their perceived superiority and intelligence.

Because of this, many children experience anxiety around tests because they have been taught over and over again that their value is determined by a letter grade and not their creative abilities. If one child has an amazing skill to write poetry, but then fails a math exam, the latter will be the topic that is looked at and how this failure can be turned around. Often telling the child they need to pay attention more in class or study longer, even though this particular topic may not be where the child’s intelligence lies. This system is designed strictly for children to learn how to memorize and regurgitate what they have learned in the form of tests, not giving much leeway for other talents and abilities.

Our modern-day schooling system was designed to train children into becoming the perfect employee, to sit at a desk perhaps, or follow orders effectively for when they are old enough to enter the workforce. The hours, little time for play, taking instructions from a person with authority and unfortunately, leaving little room for exploring creative abilities. This system, in reality, only caters to a small percentage of people in the world, and because of this, we are effectively killing the creative potential that exists within all human beings.

The following video from Sustainable Human sums this up quite nicely.

As it says in the video, “How did we get to the point where we decided the best way to school our children is to sit them behind a desk and insist they keep still?”

Children are meant to play, to explore, to observe, to stumble, to be curious, to ask questions, to find answers, to learn from others and as they go. Sitting them in a desk seems far from natural, yet this is something that to this day we still accept as normal and see it as, ‘just the way it is.’ However, it hasn’t actually been that long that this has been our generally accepted method of schooling.

“If a kid is failing, it is not the kids fault, the fault is within the system.”

Let us not forget that there are MANY forms of intelligence and it’s time we embraced every single one. The schooling system as we know it, needs an overhaul.

Let’s get this discussion started over in the Collective Evolution Group on Facebook.

Much Love
