The Desire to remotely monitor people, and the development of appropriate technology to achieve it, is a global affair. From Japan comes the announcement of a new camera technology which can scan days of camera footage instantly, and find any face which has EVER walked past it. The Hitachii Hokusai Electric, makers of the camera claims it can scan 36 million faces per second. According to UK’s Daily mail, “The technology raises the spectre of governments - or other organisations - being able to 'find' anyone instantly simply using a passport photo or a Facebook profile.” http://www.dailymail.co.uk
And talking about Facebook, a CBS news report says that unlike the past when potential employers would pull up the social media profiles of job candidates, they are now actually demanding the passwords to their Facebook accounts, as part of the vetting process. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505144_162-57401868/want-a-job-give-up-facebook/.
Even before the series of official announcements now being made, it has always been an open secret that major security agencies all over the world do systematically monitor social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter for intelligence information. In fact, some people insist the Facebook was sponsored by the CIA just to encourage people to keep chatting in a format that can easily be monitored. As the recent developments in the UK (the Murdoch affairs) clearly show, even the snooping Press could go to considerable length to gain clandestine access to people’s digital communication.
It is of course well known that your Internet Service Provider has a record of all your activities on the Internet. Indeed, (now ex) President of France, Sarkozy threatened to prosecute people who visit too frequently site preaching hatred and violence (http://blog.alexanderhiggins.com/2012/03/23/we-punish-visiting-websites-justify-terrorism-103181/). And for those who still don’t understand that every transaction on their phone or internet-connected computer is being recorded, stored, and monitored, perhaps they will get it better as from Thursday July 2 on which datewhen, the largest Internet Service Providers ISPs in the US have agreed to begin the voluntary implementation of a new anti-piracy plan that will prevent people downloading potentially copyrighted software, videos or music.
The bottom line is that all Internet activities (postings, downloads, etc) of everybody on the planet, are being monitored and stored up – permanently; that there are an increasing number of people and organizations who are interested in these digital activities, and that new technology to facilitate the search are becoming common place. All these of course are laying firm groundwork for the coming world ruler, who according to the Scriptures will have absolute control over the lives of every person living on the planet. The Bible calls him the anti-christ. These developments abundantly warn that the coming of this man is very much at hand. How prepared are you for these imminent events?
