Surveillance Technology and the Coming Police State by Don McGee

Don McGee is the “face” of Crown and Sickle Ministries.  Hailing from Amite, LA, those of us who know him lovingly refer to him as “The Ragin’ Cajun”.  He is, in fact, the first person to get me interested in prophecy-after having met/heard him about 10 years ago. He has had some guest appearances on Dave Reagan’s television program, Christ in Prophecy. I have the utmost respect for him. If you never have before, check out his website Crown and Sickle Ministries.

Late one quiet night well over 40 years ago at a U.S. Army Security Agency field station in Europe one young soldier said to another, “If the American people knew what was happening in the world tonight they would not sleep so peacefully.” What was happening? Well, there was a tactical war of insurgency going on in Southeast Asia where eventually over 58,000 American fighting men would die in vain, and there was a strategic cold war going on in Europe that was perilously susceptible to any number of flash-points.

The force of his comment, however, had something of a double entendre. Obviously, the first had to do with foreign enemies. But, the second part was the subtle part of the comment, something his comrade-in-arms understood clearly. It had to do with the phenomenal capabilities of governments to see deeply into the private lives of people — any people, both friend and foe — without detection. Frankly, America’s enemies knew then, and know now what is going on and they accept the rules of the game; they just don’t always know how successful America is, or is not, at spying. But, spying on loyal citizens? Until recently most didn’t have a clue they were even being watched. George Orwell’s fictitious 1949 novel “Nineteen Eighty-Four” is today’s reality.

It is not the purpose of this article to engage in debate regarding such governmental intrusions, but it is most definitely the purpose to hold up these hyper-technical monitoring capabilities to the light of Bible prophecy. And the two are most definitely connected. Read More
