Australians today, are living in the digital age. That may sound fine and in many ways it is. This revolutionary new method of data exchange and information sharing, however, comes at a very high price.

We know that those with a desire to control, are drawn to abusing this technology like a magnet is attracted to iron.

This desire is innate in humans and is ultimately the cause of wars, loss of freedom and the abandonment of morals and ethics.

Central control is at the heart of authoritarian government and always leads to a dramatic loss of freedom and justice.

Because digitally transmitted messages travel at the speed of light, information can be transferred and used in the blink of an eye. This is a quantum leap from sending messages by Morse code or carrier pigeon.

It is amazing technology which is mostly used for good. Unfortunately, it is also used for nefarious activity, with the latter rising daily as the crooks and the corrupt learn to harness the power of the digital world.

No doubt you’ve heard of the home and office voice assistant devices like Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri.

We now know that Amazon and Apple listen in using special algorithms waiting for key words and phrases. We recently learned the disturbing news that they also use humans to listen in on us.

These devices simply sit in your home or office. You call them by name and ask a question. Unfortunately, as well as asking questions, they also eaves-drop which is morally reprehensible.

Facebook uses people to listen to recordings gathered via its message app. They always claimed that this requires the user’s approval, but it turns out Facebook were not telling the truth.

NSW is installing special hidden cameras to identify people using mobile phones while driving and automatically book them.

You might say that’s fine, but it’s an extrapolation of the rapid loss of privacy traded off under the guise of road safety which may simply sanitise revenue generation.

Remember, we already have radar and red-light cameras which monitor our every driving moment. It’s debatable as to whether these intrusive devices actually do prevent collisions or save lives to the magnitude claimed.

The head of Amazon’s Alexa informed us that they are developing software to determine your mood – apparently without your knowledge.

Hi Alexa – sorry about bagging Zuckerberg on Twitter. Could you please unlock my windows and doors and tell the SWAT team outside that I’m unarmed.

Once determined it could lead to special ads being sent your way or even prescriptions suggested to alter your mood – all sponsored of course.

There are many such examples prevalent today, but just imagine when your insurance company can investigate your personal life before insuring you or your home.

In fact, I have no doubt that’s happening now. The big problem is that we the people are mainly unaware of all this intrusion and spying and how it affects our lives.

It’s big evil brother indeed and if you have a mobile phone you are being tracked daily.

The Global Times, a Chinese government mouthpiece, has bragged about its social credit system. It restricted 2.56 million Chinese citizens from purchasing plane tickets and 90,000 entities from buying high-speed rail tickets in July alone.

Chinese citizens are punished by having their social credit score lowered for engaging in a number of different behaviours which the Government disagrees with.

These include such subversive activities as buying too much junk food, buying too many video games, buying too much alcohol, calling a friend who has a low credit score, walking a dog without a leash, criticizing the government, visiting unauthorized websites and many more trivial matters.

Just imagine what happens with the big issues – and in China don’t even think about asking for your social credit score to be reviewed.

Yes, of course I’ll come quietly and no, I haven’t had any problems with my liver or kidneys – why do you ask?

As of November 2018, 6.7 million Chinese people had already been banned from buying air and train tickets and that number is surging.

While many decry China’s Orwellian social credit score system, they simultaneously advocate for a similar thing in the west.

They expect people to be de-platformed and have their right to engage in commerce revoked because of their political views.

Imagine going to buy groceries with your credit card but then having your payment declined because someone in Tweed Heads thinks you posted something “hateful” on the Internet.

Well this is our collective future, along with a $10,000 limit on cash purchases……..sound familiar. We already live in a digital gulag. It’s just not as restrictive as the one in China – Yet.

Mr Bayley, what you have described is exactly what the coming ‘global’ authority will put in place. It will eventually – as a few years pass – come down to all individuals being visibly branded. No brand, no buy (or sell). Life will simply be unlivable for millions.

Merkel now claims she made a mistake in trying to diversity Germany.

People around the world knew she was making a horrible error in judgment, but she refused to listen.

What can be done w/Western leaders who don’t listen to reason?

Simply voting them out in not good enough.

Joel Fitzgibbon bagging the government on not doing enough for the farmers, and what did the labor party do for the country people when they were in power, Nothing! This is just a political stunt and the labor party who seem to forget that the funds allocated to the farmers is taxpayers money and not a bottomless pit , sure the farmers need help from the drought and the government is doing just that but for how long , it doesn’t matter how much money is given it will never be enough for some people .

“The Clinton Foundation reportedly milked over $130 million from Australians over the past couple decades. After the 2016 election, Clinton Foundation directors in Australia bailed and left the Australian headquarters – a shack on a dirt road outside Melbourne. An Internet sleuth posted an incredible story regarding the Clinton Foundation in Australia. The story is another shocking example of the corrupt sham that the Clintons used to pillage individuals and countries around the world.

Kent Bayley,

You have said .. “This desire (the desire to control) is innate in humans and is ultimately the cause of wars, loss of freedom and the abandonment of morals and ethics”.

To control a situation for your own survival is one thing (self defence) .. yes, this is innate.

To control in a way that causes “wars, loss of freedom and the abandonment of morals and ethics” is something completely different and is not innate at all.

Not one bit.

I completely disagree with you (assuming you did not express yourself in a way you did not mean to).

KK Krap exposed, see Michael Smith News; “Kristina Keneally’s claims of a ­crisis at Australia’s airports have been exposed, with official figures showing only 10 people suspected of being victims of human trafficking and slavery have claimed protection. A new Home Affairs Department report reveals that of the more than 8.8 million temporary visas granted in 2018-19, 0.00078 per cent, or 69 cases, were identified by the Australian Federal Police as potential victims of human trafficking, with only a handful claiming protection.

JUST A SUGGESTION … IF YOU WANT TO SEE HOW TO LOSE GRACIOUSLY?

Have a look at South Africa’s cricket captain, Faf Du Plessis, being interviewed after getting thrashed, nay annihilated, 3 zip by India in the just completed series … All class, full on recognition of India’s performance, no excuses, no crying, straight up sportsmanship and genuine from one of life’s winners.

And think about how we’ve been acting like pork chops because we were beaten by England who were a better team on the day.

KENT BAYLEY, A very important topic. Thanks for writing this … All but the most switched off would have to have “big brother” concerns. Not only is big brother not going to tell us when spying .. when caught big brother will lie. Big brother has no respect for privacy and for honesty. Trespassing and deceit are acceptable in the hearts and minds of the numerous individuals in certain very powerful companies. One thing .. you said : “This desire (to control) is innate in humans and is ultimately the cause of wars, loss of freedom and the abandonment of… Read more »

Kent is a realist KoH. Your assessment that his assessment of human nature is false, is powerfully influenced by your self assessment of having a much deeper ‘gifted power’ than the mere mortals like Kent Bayley and my humble self.

Another story could by written about cameras that are in your phone, television, behind the screen, you can’t see them and on your lap top. That can be remotely switched on at any time and by anyone with the knowledge.

We know that in some communist countries that very young kids are educated at an early age to think that what the “”party”” wants them to think,and some religious regimes also do the same, so its unsettling when in a free country like ours we see that some working and employed in the education system are enrolling impressionable young people into public demos, against the system that provides their very lifestyle and the career ops, that go with it,Getting school kids to push an adult political agenda smacks of political infiltration,and it is the agenda of the loopy green left… Read more »

This intrusion into the every day life of the ordinary citizen, albeit that we monetarily dismiss it and move on poses real concerns. Perhaps not for us older generation but the future. We all remember when living was a relatively simple exercise, like men going to work, Mum having a family and looking after the home. We remember when governments more of less worked in the interest of people, when local council attended to roads, rates and rubbish.

DO WE GET WHAT WE THINK WE ARE VOTING FOR?

Rational people, when considering the worth of any politician, find nothing more distasteful than the politico in question deliberately concealing his or her true feelings, opinions, or policy agenda. All of us want our political representatives to be “real”: to stand on principle, say what he or she means, and mean what he or she says.
