Last night, I was watching YouTube videos when I came across a documentary featuring WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in which he stated that this generation being born now is the last to be free.
Currently, Assange is being held in the Ecuadorian embassy in London with very little communication with the outside world. He was granted asylum by the Ecuadorian government. Once he leaves the embassy, he can be arrested and imprisoned indefinitely for espionage and a host of other government trumped-up charges.
Julian Assange established WikiLeaks in 2006 and became one of the most hated men alive in 2010 when he published a video on collateral murder that was committed by the U.S. government in which drones were sent to assassinate a group of men in Iraq including two journalists in 2007. He also published thousands of classified documents by the U.S. government.
In an interview, before Assange's broadcast was cut short by Ecuadorian officials, he warned that technological advances are changing humankind and not for the better. He also stated that local surveillance will soon be totally unavoidable.
In my neighborhood, there are a few traffic cameras at intersections. In Downtown Atlanta, there are surveillance cameras everywhere. There are surveillance cameras all over this nation's highways. This is why I can't understand why so many children are going missing in this country everyday never to be seen and heard from again. There is an epidemic of child pedophile rings in the United States and many city/government officials are behind it. They pay off law enforcement officials to perpetuate these crimes. However, some of them have integrity and won't take the payoffs. Some law enforcement officers report these crimes against children to trusted individuals in higher ranks as well as the FBI. Former FBI agents have also been whistleblowers against government officials involved in child trafficking. This is a world-wide problem, which has multi-faceted levels. Many people have been assassinated to hide the secrets of morally bankrupt, perverted, and corrupt government officials. If they could assassinate Julian Assange on the outside steps of the Ecuadorian embassy, they would. Our government has assassinated so many people. Why would they stop now?
The fact of the matter is most governments have corruption on all levels, which is why documentaries exposing the corruption are the kinds of documentaries people really should pay close attention to. We need more whistleblowers. You can actually see the beginning stages of what will become a fully functioning New World government within the United States in the very near future.
I am not very optimistic about the future of the United States. The minds of the common people are changing. People are waking up to the realities around them. Governments have to lure us back to sleep so that we will continue being drones and worker bees for greedy corporations as they steal our pensions and future Social Security benefits.
The Internet has exposed a lot of shady and corrupt individuals as well as many public figures, which is why the U.S. government will be moving to legislate and completely regulate the Internet. Right now, the Internet has no real government restrictions but soon that will change. They have to lure us back to sleep, and hide the truth from the rest of the world. Were it not for the Internet, the UN wouldn't know how police officers kill unarmed Black men and Black women on a regular basis. The UN wouldn't know about the mass incarcerations in the United States. Prison is big business in America. They keep building prisons. Why? Money, greed, power.
I'm not optimistic about my future here in this country, and I don't really think I ever will be.
I do not condone hate speech. Neither am I a fearmonger, bigot, racist, or hater of Jews. I am an historian. I report facts. If I don't know something, I will research it. I do not belong to any organizations, groups or gatherings, except a Christian organization that I joined when I was thirteen years old because someone told me to join. I stayed for many years because I thought it was the right thing to do, and I enjoyed church. In my adolescent and young adult years, I learned many things at church. But I advanced in my thinking. I am a humanist that desire for all of humanity to know the truth about the world in which we live. Everything is not always as it appears. You must think for yourself, and never allow others to do your thinking for you.
