Encroachment of Government — Part 2
What the real reason for these meters is not what the energy companies say it is. They say it will lower people’s energy bills and save both the consumer and the electric company money. Both are outright lies. Sustainable Development is code for a policy designed to transform human society, essentially eliminating individual life decisions and replacing them with top – down, one-size-fits-all government control. In steady fashion, the agenda for this new policy, designed at the international level, is put into place piece by piece with a new government council here, and new regulation there, each designed to appear as a “local” development program. Like the proverbial frog in the slowly boiling pot, many Americans fail to notice the rise in government heat.
The main course of action to impose the new agenda is through the pretense of environmental protection; “Sorry about your rights, but if we don’t save the planet, then we will all perish!” And so with the devastation of a thousand pinpricks, America and its form of government is being changed through the creation of non-elected boards, councils, and regional governments, designed to enforce the new regulations and “assure that we protect the environment.”
The pinpricks come disguised as such issues as controls on community development; controls on use of private property; controls on use of open space; creation of development areas, many times under the excuse of historic preservation; communities designed on the blueprint of pack and stack housing; making it harder to drive as roads are narrowed, even forcing cars to share the road with bicycles; the enforcement of expensive mass transit boondoggle projects; and the never-ending spending spree on inefficient, unworkable alternative energy, such as wind and solar power.
In fact, control of energy and water are the two most effective tools in the enforcement of the Sustainable Development agenda. Without energy and water, human society stops. Using strict controls on how, or even if, energy and water can be used provides the government with the power to dictate every aspect of society. 1
As it will require the ability to control every individual home, apartment and condominium a much different product than a simple analog meter. Power companies will install these meters without the homeowner’s approval coming onto your property when you are not home. If a homeowner complains there is usually a battle to get it removed. Some people have been arrested and even had their power cut off because they did not want the new smart meter. As Americans become aware of these threats they have begun to oppose the installation of Smart Meters on their property. Some local and state government’s, when faced with the health complaints, have offered to opt out provisions. Others have responded using force, resulting in arrests, as in Naperville, Illinois. In other places, power companies have shut off electricity to homes of those protesting the Smart Meters.
As the battle against the Smart Meters grows across the nation, Americans need to understand the issue, the dangers, the real reasons behind the government’s drive to force them on angry and protesting homeowners, violating their property rights and endangering their health in the process. 2
For me, there are many problems with this meter. It is information the government collects about your family that violates our Fourth Amendment. We are seeing the federal government simply ignore our constitutional rights on a daily basis specifically with the NSA that records every social media post, email, phone conversation, Tweet and text. Our Fourth Amendment states: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
ANY collection of information on any family without probable cause is a violation of our constitutional rights yet our government is doing this to every citizen in America 24/7. Smart Meters are designed to provide the government with detailed information of your energy use, your movements in your home, the way you use your personal private time, and even how many people are in your home at any given time. It is an unconstitutional invasion of your home by government, as set down in the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.3
It is our duty to fight back against any violations of our constitutional rights. Smart meters are a health hazard and they are an unwarranted intrusion into our private lives which violates our rights. We can do nothing or we can do something. I vote for doing something. I came across an article that talked about how to frustrate the power companies to no end. I will share that with my readers so we can non-violently resist this intrusion into our lives. So what I will do is to put a little ‘cap’ of folded aluminum foil over the broadcast bulb of the smart meter. This accomplishes three things instantly: first, it shuts off the microwaves as a source of health degrading energies in my local environment. Second, it deprives the power company of their stated benefit. They will discover the meter is not reporting and have to send someone out to remove the foil hat. Which, of course, I will instantly replace as soon as I have noticed it removed. Month after month (up to the global coastal event by June 2013) we could play this interesting game. Then, third, the foil will redirect the microwaves into the device, providing an interesting working environment for all the chippy bits inside.
A fourth benefit is that there would be a much-reduced level of tension in my world. You see, it is a matter of perspective. If I had the view that THEY were putting a poisoning, evil device on my electrical service, and I was powerless to affect them in this process, I would go crazy….and likely would be arrested. However, if I change my view to the idea that I am allowing them to install their evil as part of my plan to twist the system till it hurts, well, then I can be quite content as I am really the one in control of the situation.
If you consider this aluminum foil strategy at the energy level, look at how quickly the asymmetry works to collapse their whole system. The power companies no longer have the personnel to perform manual reads of your meter. Nor to come and remove the foil off of even a small fraction of the smart meters that they intend to install. 4
As Americans, we must stand for our rights or they will be whittled away. We have lost many already and we need to get them back. We must resist or we will surrender. I won’t give a world to my kids that is worse than what I was given without a fight.
