But why should you care? Lately, I’ve found that some folks still aren’t unsettled by the massive amounts of monitoring done by the Gov’t, even in the most private of places. They claim things such as, “I have nothing to hide” and “Just don’t do anything illegal.” Well, that’s the gist of it, anyway. To those folks and others on the fence, I have this to say:
If you don’t have something to hide, the Gov’t will make sure you do. There are over 37,000 laws and bylaws on the books as of today. So many, in fact, that not even the Feds can keep track of them all. That is likely one of the only things saving you from court/jail time. The other thing is that many innocent people just like you are already in prison for breaking one of those countless laws (as you are doing now, several of them, repeatedly). So many, in fact, that the prisons are severely overcrowded.
It’s much like a revolving door, except if you’re not already a die-hard criminal when you get in, you probably will be when/if you get out when you find out you’re penniless and can’t get a job anymore. That’s because the authorities put just enough real criminals in jail to keep you company (who, by the way, will most likely get released before you do to alleviate the system, kinda like unclogging a toilet with a needle).
Think about it. How many people in prison are there because they woke up one morning and said, “I’m going to do something illegal today”? Barring bank robbers and school shooters, not many. And trust me on this, if whatever law you’re breaking isn’t extreme enough, charges will be made up for you that, when fed to the sheeple by the mainstream media, will seem entirely plausible (just look up the Branch Davidian Compound, Waco, Texas 1993).
But hey. They don’t even need charges. They can just throw you in prison forever for no reason at all. They may not need to habeas your corpus in the court of law, but they do need your ass to be in their custody in order for them to lock it in a cage. And of course, to do that, they need to know where you are. And they know where you are, because they’re always watching. Well, maybe not always. You’re one person out of many they want to keep tabs on. But remember that once their focus shifts from your neighbor’s private time to you, it’s only a few buttons to making you guilty as not charged.
To determine whether or not it could happen to you, only one question need be answered: Do you exist?
