Eric Schmidt: Google gets close to ‘the creepy line’, telegraph.co.uk, 10/5/2010
The writer basically explains how Google CEO Eric Schmidt is very consistent with his creepy power-tripping pronouncements.
Google’s CEO: ‘The Laws Are Written by Lobbyists’, www.theatlantic.com, 10/1/2010
‘When Bennet asked about the possibility of a Google “implant,” Schmidt invoked what the company calls the “creepy line.”
‘”Google policy is to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it,” he said. Google implants, he added, probably crosses that line.
‘…”With your permission you give us more information about you, about your friends, and we can improve the quality of our searches,” he said. “We don’t need you to type at all. We know where you are. We know where you’ve been. We can more or less [k]now what you’re thinking about.” ‘
And this is ultimately the purpose of the Internet, created by the Military Industrial Complex, RAND and DARPA, and so on. It is part of total surveillance. And it appears that it always was the intended purpose of the Internet – to collect data on all of us, and to lock us into a cashless system where we cannot live without it. That’s where it is going.
And over the last 10 years and longer, we have allowed real rights and freedoms and protections against tyranny to be thrown in the trash by governments while being seduced by the Internet.
We don’t care about our families being forced through body scanners as long as we get our Internet “freedom” fix.
Did you ever wonder why you are given all this “free” stuff on the Internet? Google is just another face of this power structure that is on a role with almost zero opposition, gradually conditioning the public over the years to surrender privacy. Otherwise they wouldn’t be hard-selling surveillance, monitoring and permanent storage of your online activities, as though it’s a product you would like to buy off the shelf.
Microsoft is another one of these fronts for the power structure. Here is where all this Internet “freedom” is heading according to a Microsoft executive:
Microsoft: Keep internet healthy by isolating infected PCs, zdnet.co.uk, 10/7/2010
“If a device is known to be a danger to the internet, the user should be notified and the device should be cleaned before it is allowed unfettered access to the internet, minimising the risk of the infected device contaminating other devices”
Cloaked under cover of a plausible excuse, this means that centralized permission – a license – would be required to connect to the Internet.
