Final Thoughts on 5G…for Now

March 4, 2019 at 10:46 AM

I thought I was done with the previous subject and want to get back to the life of Joseph, but more information appeared in the email so I wanted to comment on it. It’s an interesting article and as I’ve stated before, there’s absolutely nothing negative in the article related to 5G. Everything is presented in a way that really talks up 5G.

The article titled, “5G connectivity will one day power the future of cities” and as expected, it offers some real high points. Let’s take a look

In the not too distant future, 5G networks will disrupt society and become one of the foundational components of smart city infrastructure.

Let’s see, I notice the use of the word “smart” in this call-out from the article. For those who are unaware, most homes, apartments, and businesses throughout America have been upgraded with “Smart Meters.” These new electric meters attached to homes and businesses are supposedly much more efficient. That’s a catchphrase that is often heard to cause people to think, “Hey, if it’s more efficient, that means it’s better because of the potential to save electricity and therefore, money, while reducing ‘carbon footprint’!

This may be true on one hand, but what they won’t tell you is that Smart Meters run on their own “Internet” connectivity; a completely different WiFi not generally available to consumers for use. In effect, electric companies are now in the position of being able to control your smart meter via long distance because these Smart Meters are hooked up to the “Internet of Things.” Even if they are all not hooked up to it yet, they will be. That’s the plan (see my book, Technocracy to Tribulation for more).

So, we see the use of the word “smart” in reference to the future of a city’s infrastructure. “Smart cities” will ultimately be hooked up to the Internet of Things as well, which will take final control out of our hands and put it in the hands of government officials or other agencies. For instance, electric companies could start to cycle homes or neighborhoods through rolling brown outs or make it cost-prohibitive to use your appliances like washers or dryers during normal operating hours. They would conceivably control how much you use specific appliances (“smart appliances”) as well. Sounds futuristic? The future is nearly here.

As we’ve discussed, the coming 5G platform will pave the way to granting government agencies and Big Industry far greater control over society. Is this a good thing? You decide.

We live in a very rural area. Because of that, the only option for Internet is satellite. It’s not great, though when we first signed up, it wasn’t bad at all. But because of the limited services here (two satellite providers and numerous small companies that offer WiFi via modem that pulls from the closest cell tower), our hands our tied. Would we like something better than what we have? Yes, but for that to happen, 5G is going to have to be installed. Even President Trump supports it.

The linked article above states that AT & T is doing what it can to bring Internet services to all areas, including rural. The article then goes on to point out several of the “upsides” of this coming new technology.

  • Reducing strain on urban environments
  • Increased safety and responsiveness
  • Supporting renewable energy and the smart grid

Apparently, the UN thinks that by 2050, nearly 70% of the people will live in urban environments. Why? Well, it actually sounds a bit like “Agenda 21,” where people will ultimately be “stacked and packed” like they were in futuristic Sci-Fi movies such as “Fifth Element.” Of course, there are the naysayers that keep calling it a conspiracy theory, but here’s a group of alleged Leftists who actually believe that Agenda 21 is in progress and they want no part of it. Ultimately, you decide by doing your own research on the subject. There’s plenty there to research too. I seriously doubt that we will be able to turn back the clock and keep 5G and other upgrades from happening.

The second bullet above, “increased safety,” etc., is all about improving police, fire, and EMS responses. Who doesn’t want these agencies to be able to respond quicker? I heard one 911 call recently in which an older woman was dealing with the fact that a young man had broken into her home and was upstairs rooting through things as she spoke with the 911 operator. The call lasted nearly eight and a half minutes before police were finally able to arrive. The woman had a gun and took at least one shot at the suspect in her home during the call. Imagine if she hadn’t had her gun in her own home to protect herself? Police cannot be everywhere at once and they normally aren’t able to prevent crimes from happening. They most often respond to crimes that have already happened. Eight minutes are a long time to wait for police to arrive when danger is right there.

The third bullet is the usual pablum that we hear all the time. It’s supposed to make us feel like it’s a good thing because of the words “renewable” and “smart.”

Sensors that monitor and automatically adjust energy consumption could someday be placed on city street lights or building solar panels to help improve energy efficiency. Ultimately, such systems might help urban consumers and city administrators lower their carbon footprint.

Do you see what’s happening here? As I’ve said before, they want to take control out of your hands altogether. They purposefully do not mention adjusting energy consumption in homes or businesses but that is clearly part of the deal. It’s implied.

I also know for a fact that there are proposals under way in our state government to bring quality Internet specifically to rural areas and much of the state is rural, so that means that many people would benefit from this coming technology.

Frankly, I’d love to be able to watch streaming TV without pixelation, but that’s simply not something I can do right now. But what will we be giving up when 5G comes to town so to speak? A great deal. On one hand, we’ll have high-speed quality Internet that will no longer be a problem for us. When it rains, the Internet won’t go out. The signal will be clear and we’ll be able to download and upload to our heart’s content.

The downside? Just go back and look over the other three articles I’ve posted recently about 5G and understand that ultimately, the coming 5G is about making that industry rich and setting more controls in place over society. It’s really that simple. Like everything else, it’s all about following the money and controlling the population.

You know, I recall the days as a kid before computers were even on the horizon. We played outside. We rode our bikes. We did healthy things that kept us busy; football, baseball, basketball, tag, etc. Computers were said to make life easier, but how many times have you stood in line at some store to see the cashier have problems with the “computer” cash register? How about when you use a credit or debit card to pay and it seems to take forever to process the payment? If I paid cash, I’d been out of the store sooner unless they couldn’t get the electronic cash register open.

We’ve gotten used to doing things electronically. I know people who have “Alexa” or something else in their homes that they simply talk to it and either Alexa will do something if it’s hooked up to appliances or it’ll provide an answer to a question. Phone apps can connect us to our homes and appliances as well.

What people may not be considering is that in order for these things to work like that, they must always be “listening.” Who/what is listening on the other end? Who has access to that information? People have security cameras as well as things like Alexa in their homes. Security cameras, if not hardwired, often work on WiFi networks. Oh, but you have a “secure” WiFi network? If it’s WiFi, that means it can be hacked into by someone, someplace.

Ultimately, what this all means is that we are slowly, inevitably giving up our privacy. Yes, 5G will make things move more quickly and provide a certain type of consistency for our phones, computers and television that we’re not getting now. But at what cost to our privacy?

Will we wake up one day in the next five to ten years and wonder why we feel we are being watched and listened to all the time or will we get used to it like most people in China have gotten used to it?

Are you aware that the Internet in America can be shut down? It happens in other countries. Someone has to have access to the shutoff switch. If it shuts down, then what? Can you imagine the havoc it would cause all because people have gotten so used to the Internet’s existence? How do you go back to the time before Internet? That’s like trying to go back to what it was like before fire.

I recall living near Fresno, CA and the black out happened, which included up to nine states at the time. It was incredible to realize that nothing worked! Gas pumps were down, of course the Internet was down. If a restaurant managed to remain open, they couldn’t use cash registers because the phone lines to process debit/credit cards were down or they were simply electronic and could not be opened without electricity.

If our electricity goes out in our home, I have a good solid backup plan that allows me to power my home. That includes my modem. However, if I couldn’t use my modem for some other reason, it wouldn’t bother me. We would go on, eating and living.

We need to be careful what we wish for, don’t we? The more efficient and “smart” life’s products become, the more control we hand over to government and industry. I think it’s way too late to slow the wheels of progress though. It’s going to take over whether we like it or not.

At least I’m not like the person who says, “Hey, if it makes us safer, works more efficiently, or saves energy, I’m all for it!” Yes, we should be about conserving where we can. We should recycle. We shouldn’t litter and do other things that are not beneficial to this world, but when we do those things in exchange for our freedoms and privacy, maybe we ought to reconsider.
