Suppose that everything in your life that you’ve heard from or about the government is a giant lie.
I’ve been thinking about that recently even more so since watching various documentaries on the Egyptians.
There is one particular Egyptian pharaoh who is depicted as having a really large set of ears.
His name was Sesostris III.
This was a way of communicating to the people that Pharaoh could hear everything that was being said.
It reminded me of one particular North Korean child who stated that she was brought up to believe that Kim Jong Un could hear her thoughts.
This in turn reminded me of Edward Snowden informing us that the NSA was spying on us and could read all our emails.
Well maybe that’s just not so even though we think it is possible.
Of course, Pharaoh could not hear everything.
Of course, Kim Jong-un cannot read people’s thoughts.
Thats ridiculous, right?
Those facts seem obvious to us, but not so to the people who were programmed from birth.
Maybe we suffer under the same delusion about our government.
Maybe the government can’t read all our emails and text messages.
Maybe that’s a lie.
Maybe Edward Snowden is just another government counterinsurgency mole who was placed deep cover for the purpose of creating fear within society.
Maybe we should reject Edward Snowden and his message.
Maybe we should communicate freely in our emails and our text messages with the confidence that they aren’t being read.
Do you think it’s possible that the government could create a program that could effectively read everyone’s text messages and emails and decipher them accordingly?
How many emails and text messages do you send or receive per day?
In my junk mail alone, I am probably receiving 50 or so emails each day. When you multiply that times 200 million people you arrive at 10,000,000,000 emails per day.
Does it seem realistic that the government’s computers can read and decipher those emails in any meaningful way?
Or is this all-knowing computer algorithm a trick that the government uses in order to minimize communication between people.
I am beginning to think the latter.
Suppose I write the following: I was going to visit the White House over the summer because I had read a book on President Lincoln’s assassination. I wanted desperately to visit the White House and Ford’s Theatre. But I was afraid that if I visited, there might be a terrorist attack or that possibly someone might put a bomb on my jet airplane and either violently kill me or possibly overthrow my lunch tray.
How about if I email a friend the following: Dear Abe: I found a doll on the side of the road that looked like Chuckie who had a sign around his neck that said: I’m going to shoot a lemon meringue pie up Joe Biden’s ass with the butt end of a non-operational Bushmaster?
Would the NSA be able to pick up on these keywords and target me?
Or is the NSA overwhelmed?
We’re going to find out.
