Q1. Are you a criminal?
Q2. What are you hiding?
Q3. Why are you hiding?
Q4. Are you okay with your business being seen by everybody?
I was triggered to write this piece
By an article, I read last week about events happening in Uganda as we speak
And my mind was taken back to reflecting about how much the system knows about you, me, and them….everybody!
And by the system, I mean….you know
The big Unwanted Witness…
Corporations, governments, individuals all collude
Take it upon them to watch our each and every move
All in the name of “protecting” us and “our property”
But when it gets down to asking the real questions, you wonder, “are they really doing what they said they are?”
Billions of money is “borrowed” ….at least, that’s what they call it
From who understands where…
To buy super-advanced “toys” and software
Meant for “looking into things” that no one is supposed to
Like our cellphones, our calendars, our online lives and activity, our family and friends
Now, I am hoping that you know your rights as far this space of your life is concerned, eeh
Something that has to do with authorizing them to look into your life has to be asked of you, without being coerced
I don’t know if you have received any of that
I don’t know about you but I for one
Have never ever authorized any of this
And I am damn sure that as we speak, I am being monitored
That goes for you, too
Nobody is ever really that safe or special that they can’t be dug into
I want you to draw back to the very first set of questions which opened up this piece
Read each of them carefully
Do you see anything?
Criminal or not,
Guilty or not,
Friend or enemy,
Citizen or not,
Known or unknown….we all deserve some respect!
Where we are not walking with “targets on our back”
Where we can be asked for our permission for something without having to be harassed
Where we can be trusted to make decisions for ourselves as regards our privacy and safety
Where we can be free to live and co-exist with whoever we want in our space
Away from the ears and eyes of the unwanted witness
