One of the more prevalent minor ‘crimes’ or pranks that occurred when I was a very young girl was someone peeking in your window, especially at night. That really shook up people, as it was considered such an invasion of one’s dignity and privacy. Those who usually perpetrated the ‘crime’ were males who apparently had some sort of mental challenges going on, but not addressed properly. As a result, those who did such “dastardly” acts were referred to as “Peeking Toms.” No one in his or her rightful mind would do such a thing, while society didn’t like nor approve of it.
So what’s happened, especially since today everything we do is tracked and/or surveilled? How does that happen? you may be asking. It’s all done by willful and deliberate cooperation of those who sign up to be tracked and surveilled. However, there are some surveillance techniques and snooping going on most people may not be aware of.
Every time anyone makes a cell phone call; makes a credit card purchase; uses one of the Apps that makes life so easy; uses transponders on their cars to pay highway tolls; or uses any high tech device with an RFID chip in it, consumers are being tracked.
However, there is one overall Big Brother surveillance device most people don’t even know they have snooping around inside their homes; it’s their newly retrofitted electric AMI Smart Meter, which tracks all appliance usage and catalogs individual’s monthly data to sell for marketing purposes. Check out the algorithm “Onzo”  to understand how that works. However, the terrific infomercial explaining Onzo at this URL address has been taken down https://youtu.be/uluKjzqHDz0?t=3 . I wonder if all the times I gave Onzo exposure in my articles has been responsible for the video being taken down, as it really explained the surveillance of smart meters extremely well, and in less than 3 minutes too.
The citizens of Naperville, Illinois, took on the AMI Smart Meter surveillance issue and offered,
Warrantless collection of smart meter data (beyond that necessary for the basic delivery of electric service) without consent is an illegal and unreasonable “search,” regardless of whether or how that data is later analyzed or used. 
However, in a legal brief filed in that Naperville AMI SM case, smart meter proponents stated:
A smart meter is not an ‘unreasonable’ search, but is a very reasonable means of advancing significant government interests. 
But here’s what must be considered as the “rubber hitting the road” issue:
If corporate intrusion on household electrical usage obliterates the Fourth Amendment, it might also be construed as obliterating the First Amendment, inasmuch as the bill of rights not only guarantees the right to speak, but also, as the Supreme court has ruled, the (negative) right not to speak.
It is not merely the specific uses of electricity that one is entitled to keep private. Home electrical use is merely the consumptive practice of everyday life. What is more invasive about smart panoptic metering is the mode of networked regulation that a corporate entity, backed by a corporate state, seeks to impose upon the habits of the people — a future not only without privacy, but with radically reduced freedom of thought and action.  [CJF emphasis added]
Probably the most offensive issue regarding AMI Smart Meters after the EMFs/RFs they emit, which cause harms to human health as scientifically proven, is the privacy and constitutional (USA and individual states) issues being trampled upon and junked by corporations and individual state agencies bureaucracies. “Houston, we have a huge problem no one seems to be recognizing!”
Why no recognition?
Because AMI Smart Meters are part and parcel of the United Nations Agenda 21 and Agenda 30—control, more control and much more control leading to a fascist society headed by corporations who want to be part of the elite ruling class, in my opinion.
But what’s even more offensive to my way of thinking is how individuals line up and pay big bucks for the very gadgets that will track them and cause them health harms. Somehow that doesn’t comport as sensible.
If you’re not into smoking or using tobacco products; not eating GMO ‘phood’; use only filtered or purified water; and do other sensible acts to protect your health and wellbeing, but don’t understand your addiction to technology is going to do in your health eventually, as the human body cannot tolerate electromagnetic stresses, aka “electrosmog,” for very long without negative feedback. However, many folks may be experiencing Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) now but may not recognize nor realize what’s happening—yet?
Here are some bodily indications that EHS may be gaining on those addicted to technology.
Below is a list of the most common symptoms of electromagnetic hypersensitivity, per Richard Mankiewicz :
- A warm or burning sensation in the face somewhat like feeling sunburnt
- A tingling or prickling sensation across the face or other parts of the body
- Extreme dryness of mucous membranes such as the back of the throat and eyes
- A swelling of the mucous membranes such as nose, throat, ears and sinuses without any infectious cause
- Problems with concentration, loss of memory and dizziness
- A feeling of impending influenza (flu) that somehow never quite breaks out
- Headaches and nausea
- Teeth and jaw pains
- Aches and pains in muscles and joints
- Cardiac palpitations [If these occur, it’s time to get real medical help from a healthcare practitioner who will factor in the possibility of EHS.]
Is an electronic addiction, plus snooping, worth it?
