Technology Trapped, Enslaved, and Now Killed Off!
Ubiquitous “wireless technology” giveth and taketh away—some words to the wise.

A few years ago, engineers voted for mankind’s greatest engineering achievement, and they proudly selected ‘global electrification’ as the winner.
Wiring up the world, even in the most remote outposts was a remarkable feat. Even more remarkable is how it managed to become a “metered” grid, so that no one escapes the monthly power bill.
Now a new, diabolical, twist—The wireless Smart Meter—it’s as if cell phone microwave towers, which alert, health conscious people avoid living close to were just not enough; we now have the energy threat broadbanding inside our homes and work places.
If you do not yet know about the “smart” meter let me tell you. The power company snuck one on my home, and I threatened to sue, but they removed it. (and we all experienced new unexplained symptoms) The threat of lawsuit really didn’t spook them, they know the game is already rigged, but why get this problem in the news? After all the media has dutifully ignored this huge, huge elephant so far.
A smart meter is an electrical meter that records consumption of electric energy in intervals of an hour or less and communicates that information at least daily back to the utility for monitoring and billing purposes.
Smart meters enable two-way communication between the meter and the central system. Unlike home energy monitors, smart meters can gather data for remote reporting. Such an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) differs from traditional automatic meter reading (AMR) in that it enables two-way communications with the meter.
This story did not leap out to us with headlines or on the Network news, it crept up on everybody the way sneaky government stuff usually does. For example, take a look at this: The CIA wants to spy on you through your TV: Agency director says it will ‘transform’ surveillance.
