    Every time I go to Screwfix they ask for my name and I always reply that I don’t give my details to anyone. I’m amazed that the people in the video are so willing to sell their soul for the price of a cup of coffee. Dumb asses.

    Personal info is not private at all now. My working assumption is that ALL emails, phones, internet activity etc etc is NOT private, none of it

    All the big internet orgs are basically arms of intelligence. That are managed by “personality” fronts like Jobs, Gates, Bezos, Zuckerberg, Musk etc etc. So they know everything about us anyway. People give up their info to the likes of Facebook without a seconds thought

    It’s a cyber panopticon and, realistically, there is no way of avoiding it without total abstinence. Try suggesting abstinence to anyone under 40. Not a chance

      Its been that way at since the late 1960’s

    PROJECT ECHELON: U.S. ELECTRONIC SURVEILLANCE EFFORTS
    CRS Report for Congress
    Project Echelon:
    U.S. Electronic Surveillance Efforts

    “Within Europe, all email, telephone and fax communications are routinely intercepted by
    the United States National Security Agency, transferring all target information from the
    European mainland via the strategic hub of London then by Satellite to Fort Meade in
    Maryland via the crucial hub at Menwith Hill in the North York Moors of the UK.” The
    report referred to a “Project known as ECHELON” that “works by indiscriminately
    intercepting very large quantities of communications and then siphoning out what is
    valuable using artificial aids … to find key words.”2

      Thanks sov

      I’d forgotten about Echelon, thanks for the reminder. Menwith hoovered everything up in UK and I think that “we”, ie. British intelligence, did similar in the US. That way they could swap the info and it was all “legal”

      But, as an adopted Yorkshireman, just one minor quibble with that Congressional report: Menwith Hill is near Harrogate which is on the Eastern slopes of the Pennines/Yorkshire Dales, not the North York Moors which are on the East coast between Middlesbrough and Scarborough

      I suppose that’s close enough for the Yanks who are notoriously ignorant about foreign places. But the locals call Yorkshire “God’s own country” for a good reason, so I just couldn’t let it pass

        Can’t believe I missed that, 1/2 the family will excommunicate me shhhhhh.

        Interesting that this data sharing began out of a 1948 agreement just as the CIA were born.

          Like so many other things! They almost had it sewn up in the 1950’s then. And they’ve not stopped for 70+ years since. So it’s hard to believe that it’s not totally sewn up now

          • sovereigntea says:

            Yes I imagine they have had everything for a long while.Probably the encrypted stuff too although perhaps as cover and deception we see articles in the media demanding this is broken as they supposidly cant read the data.

            Back in the 80’s a facility in Redditch Worcs was processing digitising and archiving vast quantities of voice & video recordings on tech that at the time “didn’t exist”. Selected footage was then transferred to video tape for re-distribution all over the world.

            • pete fairhurst 2 says:

              I suppose that this is the norm sov. The revealed technologies probably being decades behind the cutting edge

              For example UFO’s? Or human technology that only the chosen ones know about?

                Indeed the devils drip feed tech into society whilst jealously keeping it for themselves.
                Energy sources and gravity devices instantly spring to mind.
