Three Phases of Surveillance to Totalitarianism: It is Happening Now

Over the past year and a half, I’ve written many pieces on the surveillance state and how we are one step away from the inculcation of technological “omniscience” pertaining to control. The objective is not simply “control,” as they have already obtained that for the most part: limiting cash withdrawals from the bank, restricting your movements and business outside of the country, and new laws being created by the day. This latter part is akin to a “tag team” event of WWF: what the feds can’t or won’t do, they “tag” off for the states to accomplish, with local governments following suit.

The objective is total control: over everything you read, hear, and watch in the (so-called) media, and an eyeball on you in every facet of your life.

Mac Slavo released an article on SHTFplan entitled Apple is now giving people trust scores based on their calls and emails on 9/21/18. This is an example of how tech firms in the U.S., in conjunction with one another and other American business entities are instituting social engineering by controlling our communications via social media.

The big picture is much more frightening, as this article comes on the heels of another, more insidious occurrence: a nationwide “scoring system” instituted in the largest surveillance state in the world…communist China.

On 9/20/18, an article written by Peter Dockrill was released that will really open your eyes when you read it.  The piece is entitled China’s Chilling ‘Social Credit System’ is straight out of Dystopian Sci-Fi, and it’s Already Switched On. Here is an excerpt:

“China’s Social Credit System – which is expected to be fully operational by 2020 – doesn’t just monitor the nation’s almost 1.4 billion citizens.  It’s also designed to control and coerce them, in a gigantic social engineering experiment that some have called the “gamification of trust…assigning an individual trust score to each and every citizen, and to businesses too.  According to China’s Communist Party, the system will “allow the trustworthy to roam freely under heaven while making it hard for the discredited to take a single step.”

To pull this off, the unprecedented scheme will harness the immense reach of China’s technological infrastructure: some 200 million CCTV cameras…

The idea is these ever-watchful eyes will be hooked up to facial recognition systems, and cross-checked with financial, medical records, and legal records – with the whole apparatus regulated and interpreted by advanced, big-data-crunching AI networks.”

The article goes on to tell of how it is already in place: it is just not completely finished. The piece also presents the case of a Chinese journalist who was sidelined and marginalized for criticizing the government. In brief, the system will allow a privileged few to do what they want, and the rest restricted in every portion of their lives, even more than today.

Three Phases are evident within this progression of surveillance to totalitarianism. Here they are:

  1. Inception and Initial Emplacement: The “new measure” is put into place, eventually becoming widespread and taking root. CCTV cameras started out as simple video cameras in the convenience store, liquor store, bank, and the parking lot to workplaces. Now they sprout up in the intersections, the shopping malls, the cafes, and the bus terminals.  This is the beginning of surveillance.
  2. Fostered Dependence and Regulation: The ever-present “bogeyman” in our society is the invisible malcontent, labeled as a terrorist, and this creates the “need” for more security and greater surveillance. The sacred goal: to keep everyone “safe,” is a boldfaced lie. The paradigm is shifted, and the senses of the populace are dulled (not very much work in that department) to not even pay the increased surveillance any mind. Over the past two decades, the corporations, the government (federal, state, and local), and the moneyed interests (oligarchs and politicians) have quietly inculcated a cross-linked and cross-functioning surveillance “net” or network…all cameras accessible and tied in to the information systems of the authorities. Authorities: those who are backed by the State and enforce the State’s edicts with firearms. Bio-scanning facial recognition, complete body scanners, and fingerprint recognition are now just a “matter of fact” in airports.  Just five years ago, the mobs were ready to storm the TSA with torches and pitchforks for the “affront at having their bodies exposed,” blah, blah, blah, yada, yada.

The torches burned out and the pitchforks are back in the garden sheds.

Now surveillance is the norm, and it’s backed by regulation“Phase 2” is the transition from surveillance being present to the creation of the Surveillance State.

  1. Total Surveillance: Control, and beyond. We have not reached this phase yet in the United States, but we’re well on our way there. Look to China. China is the model, the template, the “guinea pig” for the totalitarian road map of one world government…in reality, a world of slavery. Kissinger, Bill Gates, Soros, and a plethora of others all laud Communist China as the blueprint for the world state. Remember: Gates has scheduled (with his team of investors) to place 500 satellites in orbit to map the entire globe in real time, by late Spring of next year.

When that “omniscient” surveillance is in place, what do you think they’ll do then?

What they will do is follow their Malthusian leanings, toward Thomas Malthus’s recommendations for global population reduction in the interests of “saving the planet and its resources.” In reality, to cull the herd, reducing it to a more “manageable” population of masters and slaves, the latter category making up the majority in a world not much different from that of Orwell’s “1984.”

The article by Mac Slavo shows what they’re doing in this country at the “micro” level: the efforts being put forth to limit people in their communications via “social media,” and socially engineer the consciousness and actions of the people passively before the active engineering (first by rule of law and then by force) occurs. When that is complete? Look to the past to see what will happen in the future, and the answer is right there. The solution is not that simple, and the more the system emplaces the control, the more difficult it will be to exercise that solution.

    Its interesting to read the rants of those awaiting with glee “the great culling of the herd” who do not understand that they are members too.

    • The Deplorable Renegade says:

      Kevin2, agreed about them not understanding it. You and I recognize that a great culling is coming. I, for one, am NOT happy about it nor looking forward to it. I actually dread it but I also understand there’s no stopping it. I don’t think we’ll know for sure HOW it will happen until it starts.

      • Kevin2 says:

        I’m not too sure that it is coming in the way described. It can very well be by lowering the birth rate. If it does occur, like some wish for, they don’t realize that they are considered something on the order of bacteria. On pension? Your net worth to TPTB is zero. They couldn’t care less if your economically self sufficient because they would just like to confiscate your funds.

        • Fling says:

          Everything you say is rational and probable.

          A key point which was left out is that, knowing these things, almost all will stand idly by to watching it happen and do little, if anything, to stop it.

          There will be no revolution; no uprising; nothing……

          Most will run and try to hide from the inevitable.
          Practicing Christians will be persecuted to the death, professing Christians will capitulate to the demands of TPTB.

          All of the current bravado we read and see, especially on this site, will yield nothing and soon be forgotten as, one by one, we fall or fall in line.

        • K2, they already lowered the birthrate. For the White demographic. We’re averaging one White baby per White couple. That is,, in fact, an extinction event for us. In progress. We’re doooomed!

    • Yes we are seeing the bible & Revelations play out before our eyes!
      Where are the watchmen? Where is the church? Sitting on their arses in church singing bless me bless me to a foreign God that is not the God of the bible.
      The church is supposed to be on the front line but got seduced with worldly success. They will be the first to accept the antichrist. Why? Because they have already accepted him. That’s who they are worshiping weather they know it or not. If they read their bibles they would know that but their priests of Baal ( the prosperity preachers) have deceived them.
      It will be the ones that the Church has rejected that will be Gods chosen & overcome.

  2. bb in GA says:

    The soft kill approach would be mass sterilization.

    If they can accomplish this by modifying the food and water supply then zero growth and die off in the non-elite part of the population occurs in just a few generations without the dirty business of killing/disposing of a bunch of folks.

    Remember that the Industrial Engineering problems involved in “mechanized” mass killing are considerable.

    Biological agents are possible, but appear more difficult to control.

    The “no regrowth of undesirables” part of the problem will be addressed more directly once the Control State is in place by making reproduction a licensed privilege of the State.

    If they want a little more ugly, a tried and true play from the Old Playbook is artificial famine – food denial combined with geographical restriction. Die in place or be killed trying to escape.

    Nasty as they want to be, I guess.

    The hurry up and kill ’em quicker would result from insecurity that TPTB aren’t sure their grip is sufficient.

    “The wicked flee when non pursue…” Proverbs 28:1a

    Evil sadism is also always present too…

      WiFi and 5G is the mass soft steralization of womens fertile eggs and young girls in development stage even fetuses in the womb. See a pregnant woman using her Apple phone on WiFi and the phone sits on her lap and belly? Cell phones are killing machines. All households need to be hardwired and remove all WiFi abilities. WiFi can cause many heath problems including cancer insomnia and skin related abnormalies. Your pets freaking outcalso? Its probably your WiFi. Shut the WiFi killing machine off in your household it is harming your children and your daughters developing fertile eggs. She will never produce grandchildren for you. End of humanity is already happening. Wake the F- up Sheeple. Electric Co Smart meters also put off mass amoumts of RFI radio frequency radiation. Want nutritionless food? Heat it up in the microwave oven. Kills most all nutrition.

    • TharSheBlows says:

      bb in GA. Don’t forgot Chemtrails. You know the aluminum particles that are added to jet fuel to increase combustion effiency, but then block the suns rays and sprinkile down on the population like a rein of terror death droplets to poison the populations. Go look up why aluminum was used in underarm deodorants? Same concept. To poison the masses with no retribution or accountability.

      I have a neighbor who refuses to drink beer out of an aliminum can, and it is a legitimate reason, but I replied back, what, you would rather drink beer out of a dark colored bottle that contains lead? He said, you have a good point there.

  3. The Deplorable Renegade says:

    So someone wants to control what I think, do, or even say? They have to go through me first and they try that only at their own peril.

    • TharSheBlows says:

      Hey Dep Ren, still using your Satellite Car Radio? That tracks you and also listens to every conversation you have in your vehicle and beams that meta data back up to the satellite in real time. Drive to your hidden BOL? Satellite radio tracks your radio device location. You are already being tracked taken for a tracking ride. So what are you going to do about that tuff guy? What kind of peril are you goinng to do to that radio satellite Co? Tell us. lol

      • The algorithm. You forgot about the NSA has an algorithm for everyone in this country. The totalitarians are in control. When they go to the cashless society, then they have total control. Soon. Very soon. We’re doooomed!

  4. Mountain Trekker says:

    With sanctions coming on Russia,how is this going to affect the supply and prices on 7.62×39 ammo? If so it could soon render a large group of guns such as the SKS and AK’s useless. Maybe it would be a good idea to lay up a large stock of this ammo, whats your thoughts! Trekker Out.

    • Anonymous says:

      I’d be a lot more worried about the movement to require background checks and such for ammunition purchases the same as gun purchases than any (not very realistic) disappearance of foreign ammunition for certain rifles making them obsolete or useless.

      FWIW, there are several major American manufacturers of the ammo, Federal and Winchester among them, as well as a good number of foreign countries other than Russia. It’s one of the most popular calibers in the world and is both made and used worldwide.

    • Fling says:

      When has a shortage of ammo ever proven beneficial?
      Buy all you can – while you can…..I think I read you right, when I state that, like you, I much prefer the AK to the AR with emphasis on durability and dependability.

    • Ya'aqov ben Ya'aqov says:

      Many domestic manufacturers of the 7.62 x 39 rounds.

  5. GETTING REAL says:

    It is all part of the MATRIX…….

    Are you a BLUE PILL or a RED PILL

    OOOPS! MY PHONE IS RINGING !!!!

  6. OldWaverly says:

    Whether or not this seems a little fake news scare tactic, the threat is very legitimate I believe. It’s only a matter of time before an out of hand government turns into a Really out of hand government. Bout high time for a second American revolution. You start taking God out of books, tv, minds and hearts, and you can bet on going downhill quickly. Which is Exactly what we are doing. The short slippery road to the Fall of America.

  7. America is not going to be socialist. It is already socialist. We have a soft dictatorship in place right now. Not tomorrow. Tomorrow will be full blown communist genocidal dictatorship. And they have the tech system in place to enforce it. We’re dooomed!

  8. Fritz says:

    Don’t get me wrong. I fully believe that there is a growing surveillance/police state and the pendulum is swinging towards the rise of global totalitarianism. This will be accompanied by war and wholesale butchery of the common people the way it always has been. Surely, dark, evil, violent times of persecution and travail await us in the relatively near future.

    The good news, in the long run, is that totalitarianism in any form cannot exist as an end state for very long any more than a pure anarchic one can and for the same reason – human nature. People (as a whole) may profess to be altruistic but we generally act in our own self interest. So, even as the pendulum reaches the end of its stroke to total government, there will be some with more power than others. They will seek a little more comfort, a little more security, a little more wealth and a little more power. New partnerships and alliances will be formed. The pieces on the chessboard will move again. Borders may shift and new spheres of influence will emerge. People who clamor for radical change now in favor of more government will be the same people who clamor for radical change against total government. Inevitably, totalitarianism collapses under it own weight. Even if one race was to prevail to the extermination of the others, it would not stop the natural course of action. If, for instance, the outcome magically was that there were only whites left on Earth, we would eventually shrink back to lands bound by common language and customs such as in old Europe. Wars would continue until people were sick of it and demanded the end of government in their lives.

    One would think that with our supposed intelligence that we could do better than that. Peace and cooperation build. Confrontation and war destroy. It’s a simple proposition really. The best it seems that us little people can hope for though as the cruel pendulum slices back and forth across time and the human race is to be left out of the worst of it to pursue our own happiness. The model of limited, constitutional government allows best towards that pursuit in my opinion even though it is just one point on the arc of the pendulum.

    Peace and love towards all mankind. Stand your ground forcefully against aggressors who won’t reciprocate the sentiment.

    • I agree 100 %. A constitution with a strong bill of rights similar to ours if not identical is the only way to go. If I were to suggest any changes it would only be to make it stronger and even some how more clear. Also I would suggest that it perhaps be made so that politicians and bureaucrats are some how more accountable. Either that or some how by pass the politicians by making the democracratic aspect more direct whilst keeping it nearly impossible to amend the bill of rights. Too many traitorous McCain types running around imo.

  9. Southpaw says:

    Ever wonder why President Trump admires, praises and idolizes Kim Jong Un? If President Trump ever seizes power/declares Martial Law you can forget about it being some kind of low-rent dictatorship. It’ll be fascist rule North Korean style, with a full on cult of personality to match and with Kavanaugh helping him usher in this dictatorship. The internet will be limited, severely restricted and censored, and everyone will have to kowtow to the new Dear leader. We’ll all have to worship him like a God. Mark my words.

    Get a clue. They’re all rotten to the core and DO NOT care about “we the people.” They care about power.

  10. Blather says:

    Ignore them. Ignore your manipulators. Understand who they are and who they work for.

    Ultimately, when you peek behind the curtains you’ll find their father is SATAN.

    That is who they work for and MAKE YOU die for.

    • Thank you Blather for minding your post. It is often said that the nature of the battle is against powers and principalities and it has been informed that there is no here here. Battle for battle sake is an unworthy cause and there is no prize on the table. Adiós
