The government security services of Great Britain have ordered all internet service providers, landline phone companies, and mobile phone companies to store all interactions of its customers for up to a year and to allow security officials to have access to them when requested without a warrant. The British government is still negotiating with the companies over the how and what of the new plan expected to be openly announced in May.
Records of who communicates with whom via text or email or phone call, what websites people visit, and who is a friend or follower of what entity on social networks, will all be monitored.
In such an environment where private citizens are spied on constantly, is it any wonder that Rupert Murdoch’s employees in Britain, and some government officials who helped them, felt it was OK for them to hack cellphones to spy on various people? This is typical of societies that turn their backs on fearing God to start promoting the communist/socialist idea that government is God. In so doing, they show how Jesus’ prophecies are coming true about the last days–
But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them… Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. Mark 13:9, 12
