The End Of Privacy Might Be The End Of War

I was initially appalled by the lack of privacy that we have as citizens of this world.  If I think about it, every time I hear another story, our “right” to privacy seems to be eroded more and more.  It came very close to home when I was signing up for something and the questions that were being asked of me to verify my identity were questions that no one other than those in my life would know.  I realized that if they, whoever they were knew that, they knew more about me than I have forgotten. I felt so violated – at first, then I saw in my mind the natural progression of this transparency, because I could not ignore the fact that for every bit of information that they are collecting about me, us, someone, somewhere is exposing about them.

In one sense it seems like tit for tat, but it is much much, more.  It has a beautiful, end. First, if I know that I have no privacy, I will be forced to live (not that I don’t) open and honestly.  We will all be force to act, the way we used to act in public to appear to be politically correct, in private where we used to show our hypocrisy.  We will all, be forced to walk our talk, because all will be on view.  Soon, we will fake it so long – fake not being a bigot, fake not being a hypocrite, fake loving our brother like ourselves that it will become a habit.  Our false front will eventually become who we are, and if not, it will become who our children will be. We will have to practice what we preach, not because Big Brother is watching, but because the people we are preaching to are watching.  Big brother is not the only one watching us, we are watching, recording, and publishing out in the world each other.  This in time, will cause the evolution of people who have nothing to hide, therefore nothing to spy one, nothing to publish.  Because we will have evolved into the better spiritual or religious beings that we pretend to be. But much much greater than this, the governments that are watching us, are being watched by us.

They cannot profess to be liberal, caring, humanitarian entities with no purpose other than to protect and serve, when their secret torture camps, and private spying operations are being exposed to the world. Not only are they spying on us, but on each other.  If we follow this path to its inevitable conclusion, everyone, every terrorist group, every militia group, every government will have their actions not only exposed to each other, but to every person that they claim to govern and protect. Every corporation that hides their cruelty, their lack of concern for the health and wellbeing of the consumers of their products, while secretly poisoning  them, and depriving them of their right to have a government that is elected to protect their rights, is being exposed, secrets leaked regardless of non-disclosure agreements, or even loss of life because conscience is screaming and refusing to be bought or sold, threatened or ignored anymore.

The lines have been crossed and as it says in the Bible, “All that is hidden shall be revealed”.  THAT is revelations, this is revelations.  And perhaps the greatest gift that this exposure and transparency will come from the fact that no one in government anywhere in the world is exempt from this invasion, and any program that is written to guard secrets, can be overwritten by a better programmer, or the one who did it in the first place because his or her conscience insists. Our ultimate safety, our ultimate protection from being stolen away in the night to some top secret prison, or war itself in all its ugliness, is transparency.  In a way, it is beautiful to see how God works.  No one is going to attack someone who is waiting and prepared for the attack because they were informed.  So war will become unsuccessful.  It will become unsuccessful because without the element of surprise, you can’t win.

This transparency ship has sailed, and all of the millions of jobs that were lost because computers could do it faster, cheaper, and more effectively, including our government missiles, our private documents and everything that was once held by human beings paid and loyal to those who paid them, are now kept by computers that have no loyalty, no human qualities that protect and really serve with their hearts, just programs with codes, open, without conscience to any and all who can figure out the codes.  And one thing is as sure as the air we breath, if someone can figure out how to build a wall, someone else can figure out how to break it down.  There is a cost for eliminating human beings.  There are qualities that only we have, and can never be given to a machine. I see, that this violation of our privacy is an initial assault, but it seems to me, that it is a perfectly orchestrated plan of the creator to save our humanity, save our souls, and save our world.

I am an American

My soul is free,

my heart is brave, I need no war on terror,

I am an American, and I cannot be terrorized.

I live my life, in God I trust,

I worship as I choose, and I speak as I feel.

I am an American, and I cannot be terrorized.

I was born to be free

I was not born to be ruled, I was not born to be safe.

I am an American, and I cannot be terrorized.

I rise and I fall, I win and I lose,

I go where I choose and not where I am led.

I am an American, and I cannot be terrorized.

I am my government – I am ‘the people’

My Constitution is my governor.

I expect my elected officials to keep it safe,

I expect my elected officials to protect my rights,

God holds my life – in God I trust.

I am an American, and I cannot be terrorized.

Freedom is not a meaningless word,

It is not an advertising slogan –

It is a right to live openly, or privately as one chooses

Our forefathers did not die to be free from terror,

They died for the freedoms only governments and slave owners can steal.

They did not risk their lives to keep their shores safe

Kings and dictators keep their shores safe

They died not for safety but for freedom

They died to keep their lives free and independent

Animals in zoos are safe from being terrorized by other animals

but not from being mistreated by their keepers.

I am not an animal – my days are not numbered by terrorists,

and they are not numbered by fear.

My days are numbered by God, and in God I trust.

I am an American, and I cannot be terrorized.

My body is born of this piece of the earth,

this land of the free and home of the brave.

My soul is born of the God in whom I trust.

“Give me Liberty or Give me Death”, but do not presume to give me safety. God numbers my days.

In God I trust.

I do not choose safety over freedom, I choose to be an American,

therefore I cannot be terrorized.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government” THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
