I am speaking about recording conversations, making videos, tracking by GPS or spying or if you prefer the vernacular "eavesdropping" this dynamic is in operation everywhere non-stop & that is the insult. The injury? The people who this is done upon don't even know it is. What good can come out of all this?
FOR ONE THING
If we can save a life, recover something of value or prevent an accident then it serves a purpose. However what is really going on in these realms is nothing short of predator/prey and voyeurism (perverted or not) and is shaping the way people act and think. This is not good nor does it build character or up morale
POWERFUL TOOL...the cell phone
Imagine if your cell phone did not have the ability to record? BUT IT DOES! If given the choice of product the consumer will choose the recordation features every-time with very few exceptions. Why is that? While we like to take pictures/videos of birthdays, vacations, happy events & well-wishes other forces want in too
When they catch mother Nature unleashed it gets your attention to see & hear it. Watching something take place in another part of the world is valuable because you don't have to go there (unless you want to) to experience that awe & event. The good of having a library for the right reasons is acceptable & encouraged
THE BAD IS NOT
Watching someone undress who doesn't know, filming an event that is an assault on the senses and planned for that, sharing private moments with the world when not intended and using this "capture" to persecute, prosecute or demean against someone is at the least controversial and disturbing as well as intrusive
You see you can get legal permission to do this & for a specific purpose only. The guidelines are strict and anything outside of them is not permissible or allowed. Furthermore, without permission given, one can sue the one doing this or even press charges depending on the circumstances such as cost, time and subjectivity
VISIT A GADGET STORE THAT SPECIALIZES IN THIS SUBJECT MATTER
You can go online and see what is available to capture someone on tape, video or in person either close-by or at distance with little or no effort and with just a small investment for the gadget that does so cell-phone included. Some of these items are designed for stealth and they do a good job of it too. Amazing to behold
Cameras that are no bigger than an eraser on the end of a pencil. Police use these now on the end of flex tube that can turn corners, wiggle through turns/vents, go up or down & reveal entire rooms or spaces. Some of these are equipped with wi-fi meaning no hard wiring. I have seen them as big a s a thumb-tack
GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM
The government was using this before it was made available to the public. Their technology goes within a few feet of the actual target in either direction making pinpoint doable and accurate. We have these on cruise missiles too. For the citizen at large, we can install GPS or attach them to objects & track quite well
They have technology that can pick-up conversations from a considerable distance away by just pointing the device in the desired direction. The people being monitored have no clue that their conversation is being picked up as they believe they are alone from others. The fact: they are not alone with these gadgets
There is a strong underground market for films, videos and miscellaneous conducts caught in the act and on tape not only here but it thrives overseas at top dollar too. A simple camera set-up in a woman's bathroom or dressing room or young married couple in their hotel room is all too common and not reported. Why?
The people who were caught in the act become famous on the other side of the world and get this: They don't even know it took place either. How would they? What are the odds of seeing your own self recorded or filmed (or someone you know) & that is if you were looking for this stuff too. French postcards updated?
FIRST HAND KNOWLEDGE
I knew a guy who did this with peoples permission too. He would seek out young, desperate couples in need of money or a domineering husband who had a submissive wife & with their permission have them agreed to be filmed deliberately. The more they did... the more they got paid. I asked this guy a question
WHY DO YOU THIS?
$50,000 dollars was his answer. That's how much he made on the last one he did. This despicable person (and he was) would do this with or without your knowing it but more money was to be made with your permission & this guy directing the capture. He knew what the market would pay. That's how lucrative it is
COURTS of LAW
People in law enforcement, attorneys, witnesses & criminals all know this subject quite well. The seasoned majority speak in whispers & cupped ears when speaking in public at all. However, what is to stop anyone from placing listening/filming devices anywhere?Whats the risk of this? How would you know?
These devices cannot be traced. The only loss is of the actual discovered item which is written off as the cost of doing this type of nefarious business. Worth it if the one who planted it gets what they are after. Today, this is happening. There is no way to stop it. Cameras & recording devices are everywhere. What a world to live in. UP your awareness...to counter their awareness of you
