Quote: "There is far more to this world than taught in our schools, shown in the media, or proclaimed by the church and state. Most of mankind lives in a hypnotic trance, taking to be reality what is instead a twisted simulacrum of reality, a collective dream in which values are inverted, lies are taken as truth and tyranny is accepted as security. They enjoy their ignorance and cling tightly to the misery that gives them identity" - Thomas Cox

Those agencies, including the FBI and the U.S. Marshals Service, began deploying the radar systems more than two years ago with little notice to the courts and no public disclosure of when or how they would be used. The technology raises legal and privacy issues because the U.S. Supreme Court has said officers generally cannot use high-tech sensors to tell them about the inside of a person's house without first obtaining a search warrant.
The radars work like finely tuned motion detectors, using radio waves to zero in on movements as slight as human breathing from a distance of more than 50 feet. They can detect whether anyone is inside of a house, where they are and whether they are moving.

Even a tinfoil suit can't help us now. Time to wave goodbye to what was left of privacy. Scary article.

Mind you I have thirty years before that happens so who knows what technology we will have by then although I suspect weed will be legalised in this country by then. I don't smoke dope now but I plan to in retirement.
Remote sensing has been able to identify plant species via satellite for years now. In particular cannabis because that's where they focus. Better to grow shrooms, all you need is a dark room.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Hank Johnson (GA-04) and Rep.

It's the right thing to do.
I have heard of raids on homes people getting caught in the shower at the time of the police home invasion.
