Julian Assange, Founder of Wikileaks, says the Internet is the biggest spy machine the world has ever seen.
Assange spoke to students at Cambridge University. He said Facebook and social networking sites are used by governments to spy on people.
“There was actually a Facebook revolt in Cairo three or four years ago,” Assange stated.
“It was very small… After it, Facebook was used to round up all the principal participants and they were then beaten, interrogated and incarcerated.
“So while the Internet has in some ways an ability to let us know to an unprecedented level what government is doing… it is also the greatest spying machine the world has ever seen,” he said.
Assange noted that the Internet has helped uncover tyrannical schemes but also complained this technology does not favor free speech or human rights.
“Rather it is a technology that can be used to set up a totalitarian spying regime, the likes of which we have never seen,” said Assange.
The internet is amazing technology. It can be used for good and for evil. I believe Assange is right. The internet will continue to be used as a spying machine.
This will increase as we are led into world government. We will (and are now) being tracked every website we browse and every subject we ‘google.’
There is nothing private about the internet. On Facebook, your Identification is out for all the world to see and use for it’s purposes. We are told in scripture that in the end-times, there will be an increase of knowledge. I believe this is internet technology.
We have access to world news in an instant. This wonder will be used against the people when they struggle against giving up their nation’s sovereignty- when they are forced to be in allegiance with the new world order.
But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
