UK more and more cameras ,we have cameras appearing all over the place like on the approach to roundabouts
Then the government informs us that they are putting up the speeding fines to £10 000 along with a host of other traffic offences that come into the thousands of pounds bracket , now they have the technology all they have to do is sit back and let a fully automated system net them billions .
On the plus side material millium can bought and made into a cloak that goes over your head and body making you invisible to heat seeker cameras on helicopters at night !

Dont be shy if you dont like face recognition buy some metallic make up and just use it like a discreet camo you dont have to look like a new romantic ,LED glasses are another one , driving in a car wear a transparent mask .

Drive an older vehicle they did not put the RF transponders in them ,there are certain chemicals that when applied fuzzes the reg to the cameras one of them is a security aid that refracts the light image .

All this surveilance is because WE are now the product. The corporatocricy runs everyting now and they must base their knowledge of how to market to "we the sheeple" by knowing everything possible about us; our whereabouts, our purchases, trends, lifestyle, friends, (real and virtual), health...on and on.... Better get used to it as this is the new norm. We could opt out, but we are lazy, complacent, and that would be just to hard of a lifestyle; no cell phone, computer, bank accounts, car, credit cards. Use cash only, money orders, snail mail and take the RFID's out of your shoes. Sounds like fun huh? :-)

to the person who said dream no more

actual ly, dreaming IS called for. and reinventing. brainstorming. repurposing. reclaiming. creating, and we -- all of us -- are specifically called. it is not enough merely to encourage or enable others, even if, in our estimation, they are 'more skilled' or 'more creative.' the superlative is meaningless in such a context.

th e future depends on our creativity, i suspect in more literal a fashion even than of which i have now the wit to describe. oh yes, and hard work, often tedious. still no cause to abandon hope.

thoug ht you'd like to know.

be seeing you.

666 Microchip Antichrist Obama has surveillance and snooping tools available to him that his predecessor Adolph Hitler would have given his right arm for.

Won't that be terrific when their data is mined by malicious persons in order to determine when and where population density is likely to be greatest in order to maximize casualties in some new shooting or 'terrorist' attack. . .

18:06 I mean a living computer, not humans, doing the surveillance and calling the shots.

one reason we see all these changes is mostly because of more sales of goodies we don't really need, do we?

or we could at least be left with our own choice to buy and use them (preferably at low affordable costs) if really needed, not be forced into using them!

btw: don't forget to tag your friends' names on their photos in Facebook! ;-)

the above was actually the reminder of one much longer comment that i already posted below this one and had to split it in two parts. if interested, you can read that one too, thanks

continued from previous comment:

the other thing is, people's huge tax money (or country's easily earned super incomes in case of non-productive nations dependent on their natural resources alone, such as the oil-nations) has to be spent on things the authorities claim to be "must" for national security ...

such things include weapons of all kinds for the military (and the related expenses, such as in wars) and law enforcement as well as surveillance technology: cameras, GPS, body-tracker implants (soon to be obligatory probably, installed in infants bodies right after birth in hospitals, because the law says so?)


Shahbaz Parsipour II 27.03.2013 22:16

personally, i don't mind being so overly surveyed by the authorities as long as i could be certain they really do it for the benefit of us all, but there are two things in this relation that are not right:

1. they don't do this for OUR benefit, but for their own - and their corporate masters!

2. with all the precautions they're taking so excessively, why are they mostly failing rather than succeeding in protecting the society then?

(or is this part of the plot to push us over that cliff you just mentioned perhaps, even before some natural disaster hits in?)
