Today, when an older person complains about this generation, they often pick on millennials. Many people between the ages of 45 -65 have dealt with millennials in the workforce and have a hard time understanding how they tick.

However, I think it’s time to start looking at the next generation. Generation Z, who were born approximately between 1995 and 2014, are the first truly digital generation. They have grown up with technology from day one, are very adept to communicating on social media, are tech-savvy, and have always had high-speed internet.

Most of them have been introduced to simple technology at the age of 2.

On average, Generation Z spends between six and nine hours per day consuming media. And they use an average of five screens – smartphone, TV, laptop, desktop, and tablet – switching among them for different purposes. As a comparison, millennials use three screens on average.

They are too young to remember what life was like before 9/11 and they do not really care about some of the old values of their older counterpart.

It is a whole new world for them – and in order for us to understand what is coming we may have to stop and ask them to take some time away from Fortnite in order to explain what they see as the future.

For those who don’t know, Fortnite is a popular game and it seems that in the future everything we do will be part of a gamification process in order to appeal to the younger generation.

The Smart City networks being planned are for Generation Z and if you are asleep, you will find yourself completely baffled and suspicious of it—not that you shouldn’t be, but there are a few secret surprises that await us and many of these surprises are not major surprises to those who listen to my show.

The ‘Smart City’ movement is so much more than sensors and apps to help you park your car; it should first and foremost be about empowering the local community to reach their full potential. However, there are a lot of underhanded things that are happening with the building of such a controlling matrix that the details will fail to be reported by the mainstream media.

The Smart City sounds like a digital utopia, a place where data eliminates first-world hassles, dangers, and injustices. But there are some problems with smart cities, and no one, to my knowledge at least, has pointed them out.

Smart cities are based on data. If you want data, you need sensors. It’s not like roads, buildings and street lights will wake up magically and start chatting about the weather. We need sensors to see, hear, smell, taste and feel on their behalf. A platform can then aggregate all their data and use it to make (or propose) decisions at speeds exceeding human capacity.

Sensors will measure temperature, traffic patterns, foot traffic, air quality and infrastructure integrity, among many other things. Lux Research, an innovation research and advisory firm, has a report that suggests the world will deploy 1 trillion sensors by 2020.

As we design smart cities around the data we want instead of the wiring we have, the dialogue gets more complex. Mass data aggregation will establish some truths about how our cities run. It will lead us to score cities on different quality-of-life metrics. And that brings us to the toughest question of all: What do we value in a human habitat?

That raises the second problem with a Smart City: We could create a dystopia just as easily as we could create a utopia. The dividing line is deceivingly thin.

We assume that by tapping into the collective intelligence of both devices and people we can create better living environments.

Over the weekend, I spoke at the Ground Zero Lounge and much of what I was discussing the previous week was examined in great detail and the concerns about our humanity were expressed.

What was most exciting about the meeting is that while many people on my social media have been very critical of what I have been warning people about – there was an overall intellectual and critical concern about our future and the future of our children and grandchildren.

I said last week that there has been a glut of news about tech and the move to smart neighborhoods. The reason is that even though we are caught up in the chief justice debate and the sexual war, there are plans being made for all of us and while we are all being distracted – your future wills most certainly give you a rude awakening.

Your Smart City awaits and with all of the moves by the FCC and other authorities you will find that the new deployment of 5G cell networks will be mandatory and standard.

Local governments are no longer allowed to restrict the deployment of small-cell wireless infrastructure sites in ways that the Federal Communications Commission considers unreasonable.

On Sept. 26, the Federal Communications Commission placed limits on restrictions that localities can place on cell infrastructure, as well as strict shot clocks of 60 and 90 days for consideration of applications for small cells. The 60-day limit applies to collocation on existing sites, and the 90-day limit applies to new builds.

This move is critical for the deployment of 5G wireless communications, since wireless signals for 24- and 28-gigahertz bands are very short and a significant number of new, although small, cell sites will thus need to be built. The order also limits the fees that localities can charge for approving these small cell sites to amounts that are related to their actual costs.

This means that in some cases if not all cases the next generation of high-speed, wireless internet is a giveaway to telecommunication companies that will eventually strip government of local control.

I am sure lawsuits will be filed by small communities and towns in the United States, but to use a science fiction metaphor from the Borg in Star Trek: Resistance is Futile.

In this case, people are ignorant to understand what is about to happen and so it will be hard to fight the future and humans will be facing life under the 5G grid.

We are reaching a time where it is important to have a dialogue on what exactly it means to be human and how humanity and machines don’t have to be opposed to one another. We have to work with machines, acknowledging that they are flawed, just as we are and that we as a people have to place the control back into the hands of humans.

As we keep pushing forward through the new century and the new millennium it is becoming more apparent that the human touch or the human role of things has been sidelined.

The rules and systems that govern our lives are changing all around us, and we have discussed that algorithms are a big part of that.

Last month, we did a show with Elana Freeland called, Quell. At that time, Tesla’s Elon Musk appeared on the Joe Rogan show and distracted everyone after he smoked a blunt on camera.

What he had to say was crucial and yet it was ignored and what we reported along with Freeland was that in the future the invisible net for things would all be connected with nano particles or Smart Dust.

We introduced everyone to a controversial declassified Gain of Function exercise called, “Nano Domestic Quell.”

According to the prevailing theory, the U.S. government has embarked on a program to implement a secret “programmable nano device” that when activated mimics a flu virus. It can be activated on the public in the instance of domestic uprisings, riots, and armed resistances.

With the nano particles the military can target very specific locations, particularly with drones. They can target a room, a small house, an apartment complex, a city block, a town, or a whole metropolitan area. By simply firing a smart signal, the nano devices in your body will be activated.

While I reported that the nano particles were inert, there were harsh responses on the internet about what we were reporting, as if someone wanted to shut down any and all discussion about this.

It was discouraging, however now I am now beginning to see why we were threatened and ridiculed for getting the message out about this technology.

WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, made a video podcast from the Ecuadorian Embassy. He began talking about research prototypes with very small electronic circuits used by intelligence agencies that would be able to triangulate on someone and monitor their moods and behavior. He said that these small micro circuits can be put on paper or mixed in paint for the walls that can be powered by these small GSM /5G stations. Assange paused for a moment and called it “Intelligent Evil Dust scattered everywhere like confetti in everything.”

He said that exposing this and the threat they will use to justify its usage should be a major concern for everyone. His video cast was abruptly cut after he mentioned this.

Just today, Forbes Magazine released an article with the headline “Smart Dust Is Coming. Are You Ready?”

When I saw this I realized that we knew about this a month ago at least Ground Zero supporters did and the rest of the bots and trolls that attacked the show were certainly the same people who may have cut off Julian Assange when he tried to get the word out.

Forbes reported that devices smaller than a grain of salt are microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), often called motes, are officially real and they very well could be coming to a neighborhood near you. Forbes reports that they are miniaturized devices have sensors, cameras and communication mechanisms to transmit the data they collect back to a base in order to process.

Furthermore, Forbes reports the potential of smart dust to collect information about any environment in incredible detail could impact plenty of things in a variety of industries from safety to compliance to productivity. It’s like multiplying the internet of things technology millions or billions of times over.

Smart Dust is now mainstream, although it has failed to reach the cable news networks.

It is also important to note that to all those who believe that staying away from the internet is going to keep you off the grid — this is the chief reason why it going to be used and that is for full spectrum control.

Everyone has been or will be exposed to Smart Dust.

Many that have reservations about the real-world implications of smart dust are concerned about privacy issues. Since Smart Dust devices are miniature sensors they can record anything that they are programmed to record. Since they are so small, they are difficult to detect. Your imagination can run wild regarding the negative privacy implications when smart dust falls into the wrong hands.

Once billions of Smart Dust devices are deployed over an area, it would be difficult to retrieve or capture them if necessary. Given how small they are, it would be challenging to detect them if you weren’t made aware of their presence. The volume of smart dust that could be engaged by a rogue individual, company or government to do harm would make it challenging for the authorities to control if necessary.

Even though the mainstream is catching on, there has always been the plan to use smart dust to cover everything including people in the smart city.

In a fundamental way, vaccines, GMOs, bioengineered food and geoengineering/chemtrails are all connected, as they are delivery systems whereby this miniature technology of nanochips and Smart Dust is planned to be inserted into our bodies. Some chemtrails contain Smart Dust motes which readily infiltrate the body, communicate with other motes in your body, set up their own network and which can, unfortunately, be remotely controlled.

Even if you are finicky about what you eat and what you expose yourself to, it is difficult to see how you can avoid breathing in a mote of Smart Dust that was dropped on you by a plane spraying chemtrails.

It is technological mind control for the fully controlled grid, Generation Z and the City of Tomorrow.

We’re on the path to treating cities like living entities with biosignatures waiting to be decoded and leveraged. A city is indeed organic in the sense that it was invented by us – if the city is natural, the Smart City will seem supernatural.

The rise of smart cities is an opportunity to ask, “What does it mean to be a human being in a modern city?”

The Smart Agenda is basically synonymous with the UN Agenda 21 or Agenda 2030, and the Smart Grid is synonymous with the IoT or the Internet of Things – identification and remote control of everything by central computer and between objects/persons which is also going to use the new 5G network to achieve its desired saturation levels.

Mind control has taken on a physical and scientific dimension that threatens to become a permanent state. The interest is in the idea that a city of the future can be controlled and that human resource can be programmed like human SIMS to not question the motives of the controller.

Technology has always been a critical force deeply intertwined with the evolution of cities. From the first human settlements millennia ago to the industrial revolution to today, technological breakthroughs have impacted the buildings we use, the way we get around, and how we live, work, and play in the urban space.

Now, as we are on the cusp of further rapid shifts in cities precipitated by technology, it is worth imagining what the connected Smart City of the future will look like and the associated impact it will have on our everyday lives.
