We’re currently witnessing a plethora of articles being published that are discussing the CIA’s spying practices on American citizens. WikiLeaks continues to release information into the pubic domain about the Deep State that was never intended to see the light of day. Americans, and some people outside of the United States, are learning for the first time how the CIA can spy on all of us through our cell phones and Smart Televisions.
Although the recent WikiLeaks news-dump concerning the CIA might be eye-opening news for many people, it’s really nothing new for our readers. Spy agencies in the United States, and many other countries around the world, have been spying on their respective citizens for as long as the technology that allows them to do so has been around. And if you think all of this spying began just a few years ago – think again. Computer based technology has been intentionally hardwired by communications corporations so that intelligence agencies can eavesdrop on users. If you think these companies aren’t working in concert with the powers that be, you need to do some more research about what’s taking place in the world.
Do you think social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and others were created solely for our entertainment? These products were placed into service so that private citizens would voluntarily spill their guts online about what they do in their daily lives. We have collectively grabbed the bait and made it extremely easy for intelligence agencies to collect and index our most personal information.
Why All the Spying?
The governments of the world spy on private citizens because they want to know where the pulse beat of society is at any given time in regards to public perception of reality. It has always been vitally important to the powers that really control and manage the world to know how well the misinformed members of society are reacting to the propaganda they constantly produce and transmit.
As long as there continues to be an elite power-base that manages puppet governments worldwide, said governments, representing different countries, will operate spy campaigns that target private citizens.
