The ability of Big Brother (or the Deep State, or whatever other appellation best fits your political viewpoint) to spy on every single American citizen by recording our every digital move is a new and dangerous phenomenon, unlike any other we have encountered before. If our government - not just the current administration, but any future one as well - starts scheming about ways to impose increased control on society, it will need to pressure Facebook into playing along, willingly or (most likely) not. The threat posed by the nexus of emerging new technologies (such as those employed by Facebook) and the goals of overreaching government, seeking to mold its citizenry into some desired image, is the greatest it has ever been and grows rapidly.
So what would such a government want to see from Facebook? "Playing along" would inevitably lead to Facebook effectively cooperating with the government on every level, perhaps even Facebook being fused, in some way, into the government structures. Controlling the mass media would not be enough; the same strictures would have to be imposed on social media as well. Was calling Mark Zuckerberg before a Senate committee an effort to ensure his full cooperation in making his company amenable to the state's perceived needs? It may well be better for him in the long run to become part of the system of controls than to resist government incursions and harassment.
This scenario is not merely the creation of an academic exercise. Our governmental bureaucracy has been growing increasingly out of control over the past few decades, grasping ever more deeply at most aspects of our social interactions. The government has decided that it knows better than the rest of us what we should think on various social issues, what politically correct language we should use, what views we should have of different racial or religious groups (for example: Muslims are nice and peaceful, white males are suspect, American patriots are the neo-Nazis, Israel is an apartheid state, [Ron: which it is!] and most Christians are bigoted).
[Ron: This is typical confused horsechit rhetoric! The "government" hasn't decided anything! Cabals of covert Talmudic plutocratic controllers and manipulators of politicians, bureaucrats and security cum military officials DECIDE policies and force the aforementioned minions to implement them. Got it?! Blaming "the government" deceives the masses and gets us nowhere because there is NO SUCH IDENTIFIABLE ANIMAL! Governments are fictions! Usually they are corporations created and controlled by Jewish banksters.].
The overreaching [Ron: corporate] government [Ron: mechanism] has exerted ever growing control over public school curricula, and it even tells us what we should eat (NYC has banned sodas over 16 ounces). Some of these government initiatives are well meaning, like forcing restaurants to post calorie counts of meals, [Ron: Bullshit! Sovereign humans MUST learn to make their own decisions about such matters. THAT is what sovereign responsibility is all about.] but teaching students what to think instead of how to think is a scary tendency. [Ron: It isn't merely a "tendency"! It is child abuse and destroys individuals and society.]. In medical services, the government is already playing a major role and wants to expand it into single-payer, total government control. The U.K. case of medical bureaucratic euthanasia of little Alfie Evans sends chills down one's spine. All this amounts to ever growing intrusion into our private lives.
Centralized control over all financial activity has reached the point where there is talk of abandoning cash for all-electronic transactions, the better to flesh out the state's dossiers on all of us. [Ron: A cashless system is NOT a moneyless system. A cashless system has to be totally centralised AND controlled electronically. The major problems with that scenario are that, first, ALL people within the system are totally dependent on the honesty, goodwill and efficiency of those who CONTROL the electronic banking system. Second, Even if (which is totally improbable) those controlling the system are honest, efficient and have goodwill towards everyone embraced by the system; the survival of ALL people within it, both as individuals and collectively, is dependent upon there never being a prolonged power failure or electronic breakdown within the system. And of course, even temporary electricity or electronic breakdowns for short periods will cause panic and hardship for those affected by inability to buy or sell anything while it lasts.
The controllers of a cashless "money" system would have the power of life and death over all indivduals and groups in that system. Why? Because IF the controllers choose, for any reason, to terminate access to the system by an individual or group those so terminated would starve unless others within the system are prepared, able and allowed, to feed and care for them.
The ultimate economic solution for humanity on this planet is to grow in consciousness to such a degree that the money meme becomes redundant and we transition to a moneyless (not a cashless) society. To transition to a moneyless society sovereign humans must eliminate the core mechanisms that separate, isolate and dehumanise them. That will require eliminating the money meme so that societies create NO physical, psychological and spiritual barriers to caring and sharing.That prospect and the ever increasing need for it is discussed in the related articles appended at the end of this posting.].
Various security measures allow eavesdropping on our telephone conversations, monitoring our internet access, and taking photos of us in public places. Moreover, there are many who want the government to be the exclusive possessor of all kinds of firearms, so that we, the people, no longer even think about defending our rights and freedoms.
Where does all this lead us? In the direction of a Big Brother state, as harrowingly depicted by George Orwell in 1984, a socialist pseudo-utopia where the government routinely rewrites history to serve its current needs.
[Ron: Actually the neo-Pharisees who falsely call themselves "Israelites" and "Jews" have been doing this with increasing effectiveness for centuries and even millenia. ]. In other words, to the creation of a system of complete enslavement of all citizens, by controlling their minds through mass media. At its extreme, such a despotic system of government will subject every aspect of our lives to inspection and manipulation. A terrifying possibility.
[Ron: it isn't just a possibility! Talmudists have substantially done this already. How else can you explain the indifference of the global population to such situations (without being exhaustive) as:
First, having humanity accept the money meme and dependence on fiat debt notes created by bankasters out of thin air (by keystokes on computers) in exchange for ALL of their physical and mental labour. The result being abject poverty for billions of people; free range feudal slavery for those with "employment" and catastrophic indebitness for almost everyone.
Second, the cosmically unlawful use of FORCE to impose income taxation on the ingenuity and labour of sovereign human beings.
Third, almost ubiquitous adulteration and poisoning of water, foods, medicines and the air we breath.
Fourth, The violent overthrow of forms of popular governance everywhere by covert Talmudic Satanists as evidenced, for example, by Jewish funding of Cromwell's campaigns in the English Civil War and his defeat of the Confederate and Royalist coalition in Ireland and subsequent genocidal occupation of Ireland; and of William III's accession to the British throne and the so-called "Glorious Revolution"in the UK; and the Jews' Coups, deliberately mislabelled as the French, Russian and Ukrainian Revolutions, and many others.
Fifth, The covert bankster creation of wars such as the Crimean War, the American Civil War, the US Spanish War, the Boer War, WWI, WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the US and Nato invasions and occupations of Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, Syria, Yemen and on and on.].
As the old saw tells us, money is the mother's milk of politics and always has been. [Ron: WTF does that mean?]. But our liberty and our privacy were never as seriously threatened by mere money as they are now by the new technologies that can control the "news" we receive (fake news included), that shape and manipulate our actions and views. Money was and is used to buy politicians' loyalty and support; however, the new technologies are used to control us directly. Money was always the force behind the evil created by the [Ron: covert controllers of] government, but it did not create the conditions for Big Brother government.
[Ron: I disagree. Big Brother (Deep State) government has been created by Jew banksters and corporatist plutocrats using excessive quantities of illicit "money". The new technologies are merely a further electronic refinement of the police state governance developed over centuries.].
It is the emergence of new technologies that endangers the free society. [Ron: I disagree. Arguably the Talmudic Deep State has already all but consumed the US and most global governments and nations. Presidents Trump, Putin and Xi are currently battling to restore freedom to global societies everywhere.]. The society must counter them by legal and political means, to retain control of the government rather than ceding that control to the Deep State.
Money was created as a vehicle to grease the wheels of commerce, a way to transact business without having to trade two swords for a horse. And money provided an accurate method of valuing disparate objects: a pair of shoes is worth three chickens, but you no longer need the chickens to acquire the shoes. Or a night in a motel is equivalent to seven ceramic building tiles, or 23 forks. Money's only purpose is to facilitate free trade. But in a Big Brother state, free trade will wither and die, eliminating the need for money.
[Ron: I disagree. The money meme was created as a mind control mechanism designed to mentally and physically enslave humanity. At best it is a mechanism for facilitating the exchange of goods and services; BUT intrinsically it is unnecesary for creation of prosperous, abundant, truly human societies. The model for a harmonous and abundant society is the communitarian extended family or tribe in which all members contribute as they are able and receive what they need. This will require humans learning to let go of their false socially engineered, Talmudic materialist conditioning based on so-called "money"which is a worthless fiction created out of thin air by banksters using keystrokes on computers upon which the banksters then charge interest (usury). However, the bankster NEVER create any "money" to pay that interest! The result is a permanent shortage of "money" that results in the banksters eventually owning everything by 'repossessing' the property of those who sought to borrow "money" leaving borrowers in poverty. In other words, the money meme is a mechanism for the covert ENSLAVEMENT of humanity.
Overcoming the current fraudulent money meme mentality enslaving humanity will require an increase in consciousness. Those who cannot perceive the reality causing humanity's current global dystopia; whether because of their having limited cognitive ability; or cognitive dissonance; or because they refuse to see the truth due to greed or vested interests, will not make the transition to the new global environment once the Triodity of Presidents Trump, Putin and Xi drain the global swamp of its Satanic elements. So be it. This is a free will world and everyone is here to evolve through experience.].
The centralized machinery of the Big Brother state will distribute all goods, according to a centrally run ledger. Everybody will receive goods in quantities deemed fair and proper by the bureaucrats, and the recipients will have no say in the matter. So we might see a family of four allotted three towels and six bars of soap each year; one loaf of bread a week; and a two-bedroom, one-bath apartment. No need to determine the price of the soap or the apartment; these items, like all others, will be assigned by Big Brother. Money may be eliminated from politics, but that does nothing to save us from the disaster that is a Big Brother state.
Many of these observations arise from my personal experience. I grew up in socialist Poland in the 1950s and 1960s. I have lived through the preliminary stages of the Big Brother. Never again, please.
[Ron: IF this author thinks that the money meme is a necessary ingredient in individual and social life and doesn't wish to see and embrace the possibilities for a joyous, abundant human future in which sovereign humans seek to serve others more than self without needing money, he is bound to repeat his previous experiences until he does; ie until he develops the higher consciousness that enables an understanding of the truth. Big Brother represents a Talmudic collectivist mentality which denies the existance of a loving Creator who endows every human with spirit, ie a unique sovereign individual human personality. The Godless collectivist alternative reduces humans to materialist enslavment, which is what most of our world currently experiences.].
