The Future of a Free Humanity Depends on Our Actions Today – Activist Post

One of the unfortunate aspects of the human experience is our seeming inability to understand the importance of world events while we are living through them.

Hindsight is 20/20, we are told—a phrase meant to indicate “things are obvious that were not obvious from the outset; one is able to evaluate past choices more clearly than at the time of the choice.”

This is why some people look upon the time before their birth or previous generations as stories from a distant past with little relation to our current reality. Extremely impactful events from the last decade, let alone the last century, can appear both monumentally important, yet also detached from daily reality.

I fear that while many people understand the obvious magnitude of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are far less people who recognize the truly historic nature of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The governments of the world and the official “authoritative” sources are doing what every experienced politician does best: never let a good crisis go to waste.

Understandably, the world has been focused on surviving a pandemic, social distancing, and quarantines. However, the proponents of mass surveillance and increased state power have been scoring major gains while we are occupied. Let’s take a brief look at some of what has transpired in recent months.

The roll out of the 5th Generation of telecommunications technology aka 5G progressed even further on the legislative side with President Trump recently signing two bills which are aimed at securing America’s 5G infrastructure. Although the two bills, the Secure 5G and Beyond Act and the Broadband Deployment Accuracy and Technological Availability Act, don’t explicitly speed up the 5G roll out, they are another step in the expansion of the technology. The promises of faster downloads and virtual reality gadgets should be dismissed and 5G should be seen for what it truly is: the backbone to the digital “smart” surveillance grid also known as the Internet of Things.

Another area where the surveillance state is expanding relates more directly to the fight against COVID-19. Specifically, the $2 trillion stimulus package that was signed by Donald Trump,

A Letter to the Future | Minds

“The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our life-time.”

WWI conspirator Edward Grey

I do not write these words for my contemporaries. We are the damned. It is our lot now to watch as the lamp of liberty is extinguished, our burden to bear witness to the final flickering of the flame of freedom.

No, I don’t write these words for my peers; I write them for those yet to come. The inhabitants of that future dystopia whose birth pangs we are experiencing. The remnant of once-free humanity who might—through some miracle I can’t even imagine—come across this electronic message in a bottle.

I know that it’s almost hopeless. That the chance of these words surviving the coming internet purge are slim at best. That even if—against all odds—this message does wash up on your digital shores, that the chance of these words being understood by you is even slimmer. Not because you don’t understand English, but because you no longer use these words I’m writing: Freedom. Humanity. Individual.

Still, I am here to record the end of an era. So I will press on in the hope against hope that someone, somewhere in that future Digital Dark Age will have eyes to see and ears to hear.

The darkness is descending.

Let there be no mistake: We all know this.

We know what it means when 17 million Americans—a full 10% of the workforce—are added to the unemployment rolls in a mere three weeks. When they are joined by millions more newly unemployed ex-workers all around the globe. When modern-day bread lines stretch for miles in the heart of America’s once-proud cities. When the phony baloney fiat funny money debt rises over $24 trillion and the Fed’s Sovietization of the economy is complete.

We know what it means when police start shooting people dead for not wearing a mask. When drones police quarantines from the sky and robots police lockdowns on the ground.

Pentagon Asks to Keep Future Spending Secret – Global Research

31-03-20 03:55:00,

The Department of Defense is quietly asking Congress to rescind the requirement to produce an unclassified version of the Future Years Defense Program (FYDP) database.

Preparation of the unclassified FYDP, which provides estimates of defense spending for the next five years, has been required by law since 1989 (10 USC 221) and has become an integral part of the defense budget process.

But the Pentagon said that it should no longer have to offer such information in an unclassified format, according to a DoD legislative proposal for the pending FY 2021 national defense authorization act.

“The Department is concerned that attempting publication of unclassified FYDP data might inadvertently reveal sensitive information,” the Pentagon said in its March 6, 2020 proposal.

“With the ready availability of data mining tools and techniques, and the large volume of data on the Department’s operations and resources already available in the public domain, additional unclassified FYDP data, if it were released, potentially allows adversaries to derive sensitive information by compilation about the Department’s weapons development, force structure, and strategic plans.”

Therefore, DoD said,

“This proposal would remove the statutory requirement to submit an Unclassified Future Years Defense Program (FYDP) to the Congress, the Congressional Budget Office, the Comptroller General of the United States, and the Congressional Research Service.”

It follows that FYDP data would also not be included in the published DoD budget request, as it typically has been in the past.

The DoD proposal would preserve a classified FYDP for Congress but it would repeal the requirement that DoD officials “certify that the data used to construct the FYDP is accurate.” DoD said that “This requirement is unnecessary as information from these systems is already used to provide the President’s Budget.”

The unclassified FYDP helps inform budget analysis

At a time when it is clear to everyone that US national security spending is poorly aligned with actual threats to the nation, the DoD proposal would make it even harder for Congress and the public to refocus and reconstruct the defense budget.

Without an unclassified FYDP, Congress and the public would be deprived of unclassified analyses like “Long-Term Implications of the 2020 Future Years Defense Program” produced last year by the Congressional Budget Office.

Post-Coronavirus Future? Injectable Biosensors, A.I. Virus Detection, Robots and a Cashless Society – Activist Post

08-03-20 10:09:00,

By Aaron Kesel

As a result of the coronavirus, we are witnessing a push towards injectable sensors for virus detection, Orwellian surveillance, A.I. and robots, as well as a call to quarantine U.S. fiat money coming out of China due to its potential to spread the virus. Welcome to your new future under the coronavirus!

Whether you think the virus is a hoax (I don’t) or the reported figures are far more than what’s being said, the one thing that will affect us all is the “solution” in the grand scheme of the “problem, reaction, solution” paradigm. That being said, these “solutions” will be jammed down our throats and suddenly become a new part of everyday society like it has all become in China.

In China, residents are now harassed by drones telling them to “stay indoors,” forced quarantines for some, as well as checkpoints for taking their temperatures around transportation stations such as airports and subway screenings. And while that might seem like a good idea to stop the virus spreading, ultimately it can’t be ignored that our freedoms and liberties are being sacrificed for those implementations. But I digress, this is communist China were talking about which has essentially become a dictatorship in this writer’s opinion, requiring facial recognition to even use the internet, as Activist Post has reported.

However, what happens when that type of Orwellian society comes to the Western world?

Well, the screening procedures happening in China may come to the U.S. sooner than you may think. Next year, if the FDA approves it, a military biosensor designed by Profusa and backed by DARPA could help spot new infections weeks before symptoms begin to even show. The sensor has two parts. The first is a 3mm string of hydrogel. Inserted under the skin via syringe, the string is fitted with a specially engineered molecule that changes color when the body begins to fight an infection. The other part of the device is an electronic component attached to the skin. The senor then sends light through the skin, detects if the color change on the string occurs, and generates a signal that the wearer can send to a health care professional or website,
