Pew Int'l Survey: More Americans approve of Illegal NSA Spying than the Chinese, Russians, Vietnamese, and Germans...COMBINED!

In fact, American sheeple are 4th among most accepting of being raped by their govt, right next to global econ and freedom power houses: Nigeria, Philippines, Kenya, Pakistan, Ghana, Uganda, El Salvador. Observe:

ZeroHedge: How The World Feels About Pervasive US Surveillance And Spying: One Curious Finding

Submitted by Tyler Durden on 07/15/2014 09:52 -0400

Perhaps the only thing more surprising that someone actually needed a poll to "discover" how the world feels regarding the NSA constant snooping of every form of electronic communication, is that a majority of the respondents in India, Nigeria and the Phillippines actually approve of having zero privacy. Oh, and the United States too.

As for the 10% of Russians who said "approve", we assume they were either seriously drunk or even more seriously hung over when responding to the poll.


USA! USA! USA! 'Murica F' Yeah! 'We' are #4 among countries that are MORE approving of govt rape, than not!!! Yay!

But, don't fret, UK RedCoats came along for the ride at 14th most accepting nationals to be willfully Groom of the Stools to the State. In fact, the Britons are only second to Amerikan sheeple among all industrialized world, to willfully want to be spied upon, 24/7...by a foreign State!

Progress!! Human evolution-actual, in action. Yay!

Anecdotal to be sure. But really: Yup. 'We' are F#*$ed!

Things like this makes me wonder: "Awakening? What F'ng 'awakening'??"

Then again, it never takes a majority. A minority of enough critical mass would do, just fine. Stay tuned y'all: The Ride's just speeding up!

Bill Hicks - It's Just A Ride

The World is like a ride in an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it you think it's real, because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round, and it has thrills and chills and is very brightly colored, and it's very loud. And it's fun, for a while.

Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they've begun to question, 'Is this real, or is this just a ride?', and other people have remembered, and they've come back to us and they say 'Hey, don't worry. Don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride.' and we KILL THOSE PEOPLE.

"Shut him up! We have alot invested in this ride! SHUT HIM UP! Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account, and my family. This just has to be real."

It's just a ride.

But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that. You ever noticed that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter, because ... It's just a ride.

And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear wants you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead see all of us as one.

Here's what we can do to change the world right now, to a better ride:

Take all that money we spent on weapons and defense each year and instead spend it feeding, clothing, and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and WE CAN EXPLORE SPACE, TOGETHER, BOTH INNER AND OUTER, forever ... in peace.

-- Bill Hicks (1961 - 1994)

I find it freakishly odd

.. that in so many areas of mass polling - the US sentiments always get evenly split down the dialectic close to 50/50.

In almost everything. Either mass social engineering is so accurate and effective now it's spooky ..

Or Americans are so without principle and have no foundation of whats-what that they "could go either way" about almost anything you can think of.

It's like people here are so conditioned with Coke<->Pepsi / Mcdonalds<->Burgerking that if you throw a Sprite<->Wendys maverick choice in their it doesn't compute.

"Wait .. before I answer the question, how did everybody *else* vote again? Ok then put me on the *other* side, gotta keep this thing balanced out" ??

Not a reliable source


I don't think so. Anyone who says they like to be spied on is paid to say it.

not to belabor the obvious, but ALL "scientific polls/surveys"

are in fact, what they call in the industry as "push polls."

there is no such unicorn as a 'neutrally phrased' questionnaire.

every question in a survey is a loaded one, designed to yield a specific range of answers, to be used as a metric to formulate statist policies. that fact never changes.

But of course, this is a percentage of only those surveyed, NOT the entirety of a population of a given nation as a whole: ie, obviously, nobody surveyed the whole population of China's 1.355 billion! Duh. LOL.

Still, if you had to gauge a vox populi/prevailing sentiment among an identifiable group of masses, I'd highly recommend John Zogby's polls, and for more mainstream to slightly left of center: Pew Research Poll, which this one is. Gallup, is predominantly pro-state, but observed in context, and depending on how you yourself are individually aware of macro geopolitical trajectory, their poll results do in fact reveal interesting data.

that said, this maybe your wishful thinking: "Anyone who says they like to be spied on is paid to say it." but I don't think I have to remind you that historically, all modern tyrants have been popularly elected into 'office,' at least initially.

And history's littered with dead souls...who died at the hands of those whose daily repetitive self-rationalization mantra was: "I was just following orders."

while these type of polls/surveys are a broad generalization to be sure, that said, as historically observably visible: I would confidently argue that acquiescent sheeple are unfortunately always a majority, in almost all cultures.

so, frankly, I don't find this push poll results to be all that surprising, particularly, that of the Amerikan sheeple who were surveyed.

Predictions in due Time...
