As the world’s citizens push back against their government’s globalist advances, those in power will resort to some shady maneuvering to maintain their place at the table.
The number one enemy of the globalist agenda is the concept of free speech – a right that has been bestowed upon Americans by the nation’s Constitution. Unfortunately, even that precious right can be manipulated, marred, and maimed by the very government who has sworn to provide it. Take, for example, the strangling of the internet.
“There have been more than 50 government shutdowns of the Internet in 2016, costing the respective countries hundreds of millions of dollars and choking citizen freedoms during crucial moments.
“According to a report from the Brookings Institute, strangling the internet cost $2.4 billion over the course of 2016. Senior Global Advocacy Manager Deji Olukotun of the Access Now digital rights organization believes that an even greater cost can be counted in human lives.
“Olukotun says that the shutdowns ‘go hand in hand with atrocities,’ citing the deaths of Ethiopian protesters ‘during the kind of blackout where it’s difficult to report on what’s happening.’ Other shutdowns include communication blackouts during the Ugandan elections, and governments that chose to go so far as shutting down all Internet access just to keep students from cheating on exams.
“The biggest losses are clustered near the top, with three major contenders. Conservative estimates suggest that India lost nearly a billion dollars due to its shutdowns, while Saudi Arabia managed nearly half a billion on its own. Morocco gave up $320 million.
“Even governments that didn’t wall off the entirety of the Internet still blocked access to social media in some cases, and their methods have steadily become more sophisticated. As time goes on, it grows more and more difficult for citizens to find any way around restrictions on digital information.”
The unfortunate truth is that the internet itself has become so intrinsic to our daily lives that it is a very susceptible and simple chokepoint for governments looking to stifle the ability of their subservients to communicate. As global citizens continue to discover the truth about the power structures of the world, you can expect more shut downs of the internet.
