Is America Becoming Fascist?

Government spies are watching you from some of the least expected PRIVATE companies. Companies are getting rich by contracting with the government to keep tabs on your movements and actions 24/7.

In fascist America, many of the corporations we do business with on a daily basis are in fact acting as secret agents of the government.

Facebook, Instagram, Google-YouTube, TikTok, etc., are all working with the government at every level. Your education data, your health data, your financial data, almost all of it can be requisitioned by the government at a moment’s notice and it will be turned over.

But some companies are turning over your personal data where you would least expect it. Remember, the very definition of fascism is when the private sector corporations are colluding with government agencies to oppress the people. Keep that in mind as we look at a shocking story that broke over the weekend that impacts almost every American.

The Daily Mail, citing an article in Forbes magazine, has a shocking story about FedEx using AI-powered cameras installed on its trucks to serve as the watchful eyes of police departments nationwide.

The private postal-delivery firm has partnered with a $4 billion surveillance startup company based in Georgia called Flock Safety, Forbes reported.

Flock specializes in automated license plate recognition and video surveillance, and already has a fleet of around 40,000 cameras spanning 4,000 cities across 40 states.

FedEx has teamed up with the company to monitor its facilities across the U.S., but under the deal it is also sharing its Flock surveillance feeds with law enforcement. And it is believed to be one of four multi-billion-dollar private companies with this type of arrangement.

Critics liken the move to rolling out a mass surveillance network – as it emerged that some local police departments are also sharing their Flock feeds with FedEx.

Here is a short exposé on Flock and its founder.

Jay Stanley, a policy analyst with the ACLU, told the Virginian Pilot: “There’s a simple principle that we’ve always had in this country, which is that the government doesn’t get to watch everybody all the time just in case somebody commits a crime.”

He adds that, “The United States is not China. But these cameras are being deployed with such density that it’s like GPS-tracking everyone.”

In response to Forbes’ report that FedEx was part of Flock’s nationwide surveillance system, he told the outlet: “It raises questions about why a private company…would have privileged access to data that normally is only available to law enforcement.”

He went on to describe it as “profoundly disconcerting.”

Flock Safety’s cameras are used to track vehicles by their license plates, as well as the make, model, and color of their cars. Other identifying characteristics are also monitored, such as dents and even bumper stickers.

Lisa Femia, staff attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, warned that FedEx’s participation is open to abuse because private firms are not subject to the same transparency laws as police.

This, she told Forbes, could “leave the public in the dark, while at the same time expanding a sort of mass surveillance network.”

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office in Tennessee confirmed its partnership with Flock in an email to Forbes, stating:

“We share reads from our Flock license plate readers with FedEx in the same manner we share the data with other law enforcement agencies, locally, regionally, and nationally.”

He also confirmed his department had access to FedEx’s Flock feeds.

So, in essence, FedEx is an arm of the government. More accurately, it’s the eyes and ears of the government. Treat it accordingly. If you’re able to install a gate across your driveway that would require them to leave packages there, do it. If not, make sure all garage doors, blinds, etc., are closed whenever you are expecting a delivery from this company.
