“The government should be afraid of the people. The people shouldn’t be afraid of the government.”

Years ago, following NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden‘s revelations about the scale and scope of the US and UK-led ‘Five Eyes’ global surveillance and spying matrix, much of the public was left wondering: what was the eventual endgame of all of these taxpayer-funded illegal governments operations being used against their own people? In 2020 the world got its first clear glimpse of why this was all being ramped-up – after Western governments led the effort to lockdown their populations in their homes under the pretext of a coronavirus ‘global pandemic.’ This gave technocratic governments the opportunity they needed to further drive society into their digital matrix, and prepare for global government applications like the so-called ‘Vaccine Passport’ bio-surveillance systems being led mainly by the UK and Israeli governments.
