The FBI appears to have begun using a novel form of electronic surveillance in criminal investigations: remotely activating a mobile phone's microphone and using it to eavesdrop on nearby conversations.The technique is called a "roving bug," and was approved by top U.S. Department of Justice officials for use against members of a New York organized crime family who were wary of conventional surveillance techniques such as tailing a suspect or wiretapping him.
This might be old news to some of you, but doesn't hurt to be reminded of such insidiousness (done in the name of protecting us) once in a while. Now I remember why I keep my cell phone in a sound-attenuating case, with the ringer turned up so I can hear it.
The fact is that there are scum in our government who will do anything they think they can hide, including lying us into world-ending conflagrations and economic collapse, and torture-murder on the basis of the lie that it's for purposes of interrogation, when it's Satanism/SRA. Do you think they're going to let a "GD piece of paper" (as Bush reportedly referred to the Constitution) prevent them from listening in on any life they damned well please? However, unles you're a threat to their plan to destroy civilization and build an Orwellian fascist sytem on its ashes, they probably won't waste time on you. They probably just want to kill you.
Orwell's statement that "If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - FOREVER" is no exaggeration. Orwell was on the inside, and his book reflects that knowledge. Look at Iraq, and look at what the real-world O'Brien's did to Jose Padilla. This is the true nature of evil, and it's aimed right at the human mind, the crown of creation (a work in progress, obviously).
This use of technology is intended to both facilitate the rise of an Orwellian world, and to be part of it. It's no different in spirit than the NSA's ability to save whatever we type into our computers to a secret area on the hard drive, and upload it at their convenience. This isn't necessary to fight crime, and that's not why it was created. It's a tool of the Thought Police.
