1st Quarter 2020 Wrap Up: The Real Deal on Going Local – The Final Mile with Patrick M. Wood

"After being sued by 38 states, Google admitted last March that its weird-looking cars outfitted with roof cameras facing four directions were not just taking pictures; they were collecting data from computers inside homes and structures, including 'passwords, e-mails and other personal information from unsuspecting computer users.'" ~ Steven Rosenfeld, "4 insane ways Google has been invading our privacy. It's even worse than you thought…"

Our theme for the 1st Quarter 2020 Wrap Up is "The Real Deal on Going Local."

We start our discussion of what is happening at the local level with the publisher of Technocracy News, Patrick M. Wood. Check out our recent interviews with Patrick on Technocracy and Opportunity Zones, which provide critical insights to understand the rapid changes underway.

In this week's interview, Patrick and I review "the final mile" as the Internet of Things (IOT) continues to be integrated into local communities and residential housing. This is a tsunami of digital and wireless technology, accompanied by an unprecedented deluge of new laws and regulation related to "sustainable development"—and the resulting push to use these to centralize ownership and control of local land, real estate, and economies.

Where we are now is bad enough. Unfortunately, Washington and Silicon Valley are busy lobbying for even worse proposals—from the Green New Deal to implanting chips in our bodies and injecting nanotechnology that lodges in our brains and nervous system—as well as printing and handing out trillions to insiders. In combination, these proposals are not just working toward the end of property rights but toward a slavery system managed centrally with the aid of AI, mind control, and wireless systems. For people used to a culture that believes in individual sovereignty and divine intelligence, it can be challenging to fathom that this is really happening.

Patrick has a deep command of the multiple systems integrating into our local communities. In addition to serving as editor-in-chief of Technocracy News, he is now working to educate his neighbors at Globalization of Arizona and Citizens for Free Speech. In our interview, Patrick provides an excellent overview of how things are coming together in our communities and residential neighborhoods.

In Let's Go to the Movies, I will review Josh del Sol's powerful award-winning documentary Take Back Your Power 2017 on "smart" meters and the "smart" grid. It does an excellent job of connecting the dots between "smart technology" and the compromising of our property rights and draining of our health and finances.
