"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Move Along, Nothing To See


Some days I don't know why I bother. In common with other bloggers, I come across snippets of news that will have a profound effect on all our lives and yet they're not being taken up and debated in the msm, in fact not mentioned at all. It's impossible to fight something which is cloaked in lies; it's like fighting a will-o'-the-wisp, a Scotch Mist or a shape-shifting alien.

The latest is INDECT (Intelligent information system supporting observation, searching and detection for security of citizens in urban environment - yes, really!)  The scope of this project reveals growing governmental preference for systems capable of locking people up not for what they have done, but for what they might do. This ties in with yesterday's post on ISIS, the previous posts on the EU & the NWO plus the leaked EUISS Report also has something to say about it. (These boys do like their acronyms don't they? I've got another one for them: SNAFU).

Open Europe has been reviewing projects currently in receipt of EU funding.  They've identified INDECT as having potentially far-reaching effects for anyone living or working in Europe. The main objectives of this project, according to its own website, are:
To develop a platform for: the registration and exchange of operational data, acquisition of multimedia content, intelligent processing of all information and automatic detection of threats and recognition of abnormal behaviour or violence, to develop the prototype of an integrated, network-centric system supporting the operational activities of police officers.
In addition, it aims "to develop a set of techniques supporting surveillance of internet resources, analysis of the acquired information, and detection of criminal activities and threats."

There are two controversial aspects to this research. First is the extent of data collection and second is the proposition that law enforcement agencies  will in future be able to model potentially criminal and anti-social behaviour and therefore focus on individuals before crimes are committed.

It's all very similar to another EU-sponsored piece of research,  ADABTS  (Automatic Detection of Abnormal Behaviour and Threats in crowded Spaces). According to the website it "aims to develop models for abnormal and threat behaviours and algorithms for automatic detection of such behaviours as well as deviations from normal behaviour in surveillance data."

Brilliant!  The idiosyncracies of human behaviour are to be reduced to algorithms and monitored by computers. Suddenly, the small steps are combining and becoming 'a giant leap for mankind'.

Even I find my own views on this alarmist and extremist. We either comply or fight; I don't see any in-between option - and that scares the hell out of me.

  1. I do not think that is an alarmist nor extremist standpoint. In fact I reckon most people agree. I spoke to a couple of retired officers in the army and they too agreed that Britain was a ticking time bomb. Violence will be a common feature very soon if this is not stopped.

    The British might be the most relaxed in the world about their human rights but I believe they can only take so much before action is taken.

  2. I think David Miliband would disagree with you 13th ;)

    I'm sorry to hear your ex-Army friends agree - it's something no-one wants to happen. I think it's time to dig out an old Kipling poem, again!

  3. Violence might indeed be the only option.

    In America, the troops swear an oath not to harm American citizens but they've been instructed to do just that by the Executive - Obama. Most of them are entirely ignorant of the constitution, which forbids them from following such orders.

    How many people are aware of our constitution? How long before it happens here?

    Not long, I'll wager. The Lisbon Treaty makes our constitution null and void.

  4. Education & the state-directed national curriculum is a wonderful thing Fausty - don't be such an unpatriotic extremist.

    I'm beginning to think that the 'authorities' thought that 13yrs of Labour in Britain would change the mind-set of the people, if not by nudge then by law and that's why there's this sudden quickening of Lisbon and EU directives.

    Obama was a gift to the EU/NWO and now they've got him. I see our only hope now as the American people and the Brits but your posts on rfid bracelets and Massachusetts don't give me much hope.

    As for our Constitution - Labour has forever told us we have no Constitution worthy of the name. It's what they teach in schools and it's why the Constitutional Renewal Bill comes before Parliament next month. It will wipe out our previously unwritten Constitution and bring us into line with Europe.

    I just hope the 'Great & the Good' have misjudged the public mood and pushed too hard & too fast.
