U.N. calls for 'anti-terror' Internet surveillance ... United Nations report calls for Internet surveillance, saying lack of "internationally agreed framework for retention of data" is a problem, as are open Wi-Fi networks in airports, cafes, and libraries. The United Nations is calling for more surveillance of Internet users, saying it would help to investigate and prosecute terrorists. – CNET
Dominant Social Theme: It is very important to provide the UN with weapons to go after terrorists.
Free-Market Analysis: So here it comes. The powers-that-be have decided that they need to track user details on the Internet to prevent crime.
We've reported for a while on private justice. Why is it that proponents of the state simply assume that crime is the state's business? Actually it is not. Prosecution of "crime" was privatized for tens of thousands of years, or at least administered tribally by hired or appointed third parties. Only with the rise of the military-industrial state did the power elite behind the state gradually push for the state to take over the entire process.
As a result, today the state pays for prosecution, policing, judging, sentencing and imprisonment. This system is presented as impartial, though, in fact, it is rife with conflicts of interest and corruption at every turn. It also allows those in power to direct the awesome power of the state in any direction they choose to further facilitate the empowerment of the few. Here's some more from the article:
A 148-page report (PDF) released today titled "The Use of the Internet for Terrorist Purposes" warns that terrorists are using social networks and other sharing sites including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Dropbox, to spread "propaganda."
"Potential terrorists use advanced communications technology often involving the Internet to reach a worldwide audience with relative anonymity and at a low cost," said Yury Fedotov, executive director of the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).
The report, released at a conference in Vienna convened by UNODC, concludes that "one of the major problems confronting all law enforcement agencies is the lack of an internationally agreed framework for retention of data held by ISPs." Europe, but not the U.S. or most other nations, has enacted a mandatory data-retention law.
That echoes the U.S. Department of Justice's lobbying efforts aimed at convincing Congress to require Internet service providers to keep track of their customers -- in case police want to review those logs in the future. Privacy groups mounted a campaign earlier this year against the legislation, which has already been approved by a House committee.
This was perfectly predictable, of course. What the article doesn't report on is that the war on terror itself is questionable. Al Qaeda was apparently a creation of the CIA, at least in part, during the war waged against Russia when its then-Communist government invaded Afghanistan.
More recently, the US State Department itself has admitted that it is utilizing individuals commonly associated with Al Qaeda in wars waged in both Libya and Syria. The State Department and the mainstream Western media maintain that such wars are the product of individual "youth movements" but it has long been apparent that Western Intel is behind those as well (see AYM).
These apparent facts lead us to believe that the larger terrorist conflict is being manufactured, at least to some extent, to serve as a justification for a crackdown on various freedoms and civil rights in the West. The ultimate goal is world government and it is being built via ever-more authoritarian means.
What we call the Internet Reformation has made it more difficult for the power elite to utilize dominant social themes – fear-based promotions – to frighten middle classes into giving up wealth and control to globalist institutions like the UN. As a result, the elites wish to attack and control the Internet.
The report is very clear on what those behind the UN wish to acquire. "It would be desirable for certain Web sites – such as instant-messaging services and VoIP providers like Skype – to keep records of 'communication over the Internet such as chat room postings.'"
It would also be desirable to regulate open WiFi networks as these allow anonymous utilization by those who could be "terrorists." And cell-phone tracking is on the wish list. "Location data is ... important when used by law enforcement to exclude suspects from crime scenes and to verify alibis."
As with every other part of the current Western justice system, such tracking is incredibly expensive. Fortunately, Western governments via monopoly central banking have a virtually unlimited pocketbook. Historically, totalitarian regimes were always in search of revenue. Today, the average authoritarian regime need not worry about it.
The report therefore proposes that government pay for all this surveillance. The idea is that governments "would provide a clear legal basis for the obligations placed on private sector parties, including... how the cost of providing such capabilities is to be met."
What are the organizations behind the suggestion of a "global surveillance state?" The article writes that the UN report was "produced in collaboration with the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force, which counts the World Bank, Interpol, the World Health Organization, and the International Monetary Fund as members."
The IMF? The World Health Organization? The globalist superstructure continues to gather momentum. Desperation, furtiveness and rapidity are seemingly main hallmarks.
