Google Becomes Government Spy

(NaturalNews) The government, in a so called "attempt to protect the people from disease outbreaks," has recently colluded with Google to track what we are searching for. The reason: to track high concentrations of searches for "flu" related topics in certain demographic areas.

The Center for Disease Control is the agency behind this new surveillance, and the danger at hand may likely be mandatory flu vaccinations. Flu vaccinations and their dangers have been well covered by Natural News, as they expose them as being ineffective, corrupt, and hazardous to your health.

This works by using a Google tool given to the government called Flu Trends. It logs and records all Google searches for keywords relating to the flu. The data is then aggregated to locate "hot spots" where a flu outbreak might be.

Although this may seems dismal, a flu shot by force is probably a health hazard that we, and our children in school would like to avoid. But what`s next? Government tracking what websites we go to and what information we're exposed to? A quarantine of cities, or counties with too many "flu" searches?

One question many people have about this is, "are actual individuals being tracked?" Google states that, "Flu Trends can never be used to identify users because we rely on anonymous and aggregated counts of how often certain search queries occur each week." But it certainly isn`t impossible. Current technology could easily make tracking individuals a reality.

It`s unlikely that the invasion of privacy will stop here however. Business will most likely get most of Google`s data, which they already have for the most part, through many Google tools. And that`s just the obvious progression of the world of marketing.

Nevertheless, the collusion of power has never been good, but it has especially been dangerous when it`s a collusion of government and private business. In fact history would be proving us wrong if we didn`t expect more government surveillance and privacy invasion. The government colluded with phone companies to spy on U.S. citizens. With the impending Codex conquest for health control, searches and websites about natural medicine, organic foods, and health supplements may be in danger of being tracked and recorded.

The more likely danger though, is that internet censorship is on the way. It`s already been made illegal for natural supplement companies to educate about their products on the same website that they sell them on. Google has also prohibited the advertisement of what they call "miracle cures", in which even conservative alternative medicine and natural treatment advertisers have been getting flagged for.

Worse than Google however, is the precedent for government`s internet censorship. It first began with the FBI surveillance software called Carnivore in 1999. It was a surveillance device that they wanted to implant with the company EarthLink. EarthLink fought it, and it was supposedly discontinued, but the government then began pressuring internet service providers for surveillance.

The next big move was in 2005, when pornography was used as an excuse to censor the internet. The government attempted to subpoena Google`s data base to provide comprehensive records of searches. Google did not go along with this, however. But, Google did cooperate with the Chinese government to censor a great deal of its normal content from the Chinese people.

It just takes the slightest excuse for those in power to infringe upon our rights, and it opens up the door for them to spread their arms of tyranny over the internet. Remember what Benjamin Franklin warned: "Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security deserves neither and will lose both." And, "Distrust and caution are the parents of security."
