Are Protesters Harming their Future?
Are anti-oil, anti-progress anti-Canadian economy protesters destroying their future for employment opportunities?
Are young, idealistic protesters and natives being puppeted and used by the sophisticated big money environmental lobby?
Eco-Organizations employ provocative agents who organize the protests, and those individuals may also be limiting their future chances of being employed in industry or commerce.
Most employers today will do a Google and social media search of job applicants to help assess their social behavior and character.
We are really naÃ¯ve to the amount of personal identity and information being collected/stored in huge metadata bases. Canadians are the biggest users of social media in the world, and some security experts think we are careless to post so much personal info on Facebook and Twitter.
With all the sophisticated surveillance technology and the desire for governments to surveil us, since 911 itâ€™s almost certain that provocative protesters are being documented.
Some radical protests of our infrastructure may be perceived as economic sedition and insurgent anarchy that could threaten national sovereignty.
Those who attended the Burnaby mountain protest with cars likely had their license plates scanned.
Canada is part of USAâ€™s â€˜Homeland Securityâ€™ on their National Security Agency (NSA) map, and they collect nearly everything a user does on the internet.
Communications Security Establishment of Canada (CSEC), Canadaâ€™s electronic spy agency, admits it incidentally spies on Canadians while targeting foreign entities.
Itâ€™s become well known that the foreign-funded anti-oil eco-lobby is targeting Canadian Oil, because they donâ€™t protest against American, OPEC, or Russian oil, only Canadian oil and pipelines.
One of the privileges of being old is our precious freedom to express an opinion, as itâ€™s not as if we have to worry about being branded or getting fired.
