You Want Your Freedom Back? Ditch Your Smartphone

The Ontario government is relying on cell phone derived 'Mobility Data' to make lockdown decisions. What if they couldn't get access to it?

In what I consider to be a startling admission, the Ontario government has revealed that it is relying on the data from your cell phone to track where you are going and using that to determine whether or not to let up on their strict lockdown measures.  Worse still is that the data is being provided to them by one company:  tech giant Google.

According to reporting from the Toronto Sun, the government is dissatisfied with the fact that people - in spite of being told to stay locked up in their houses - have been going to parks.  Look here:


Are they really surprised by these numbers?  EVERYTHING IS CLOSED except parks.  And now we're being punished for going there, too.  They literally want everyone to sit inside their homes all day every day.  This is complete madness, but if you've watched my video called "This Isn't About A Virus" then you know the reason for it.  

Can we fight back against this???  YES.
For almost 2 years I've begged people to understand that you are each carrying your prison cell in your pockets. And you're PAYING for it, too.  That 'cell' is your smartphone.  Your cell phone.  Coincidence?  

If you don't have one, they can't track your mobility.  Also, they can't fake data (why are we trusting Google, anyway? Is the Ontario government sure of these numbers, or are they simply putting faith in the most predatory tech company on this planet??)  

If you don't have a smartphone, they can't require that you use it for access to retail stores (if they ever opn up) or to pay for things in person, or to show your vaccine status, or to gain access to your own apartment building, etc etc.  The fewer people who have smartphones the fewer the smartphone demands will be in your community.

In addition to frustrating their digital control grid, getting rid of your smartphone will take money right out of the bank accounts of many of the Oligarchs' companies.  Last time I checked, the phones + the data packages were worth several trillion per year.  Imagine robbing these evil corporations of TRILLIONS?  That would make a dent in their plans, too.

I know, I know - you're already typing your objections.
"You'll never convince people to do this."
"But muh job/maps/photos!"
"How would we see your work, Polly?"
"I just bought a new one though!"
"I literally have my whole life on it"
"But they can be used for so much good, too!"
blah blah blah I've heard them all.

Fact is I don't have a smartphone and haven't had one for years and yet here I am, managing to do this blog and the videos and I even manage to drive around without getting lost!  ;)  If I can do it, you can do it.  Almost no one legitimately needs a smartcell.  If you are one of the tiny percentage of people who absolutely cannot get a work-around then fine, I don't mean you.  But for everyone else?  What are you doing??  It's like owning a backhoe for gardening in your urban backyard. Overkill.  

I'm going to stop writing now.
God bless.

Hi. I am an Environmental Health Scientist and Epidemiologist and work in health and medicine who would like to connect with you. I'm intentionally posting to an old post so that it may be seen by you only (you can delete once you've emailed me). Thank you.

Hi Polly--- this message of support and profound respect for your position on the smart phone comes from Austra(apathy)lia where I think the chance of getting anyone to abandon this horrible device is really harder than elsewhere. Even those who fully know what owning this device means in this war still would never give it up. I am so saddened-- but at least hearing you say the same thing helps me a little to cope with seeing this lunacy addiction. Finally Go Canada-- I have a Canadian flag in my window as you people outshine us here--in terms of freedom and courage! (I am USA born --in the last war)

Hello. I grew up in Maine and am French-Canadian. I agree with what you say, I've told people for two years to ditch the apple and android phones. I do have a an adroid but it is completely de-googled. A Linux phone with a Linux operating system, and even then, I never travel with it. My family call me crazy for this, as they are being tracked and traced. On my iphone, before I got rid of it. I discovered I was part of a "trial experiment" in the ANALYTICS section, others should check this out, and that my phone was taking my "stability heart rate" and other things despite my not ativating the health app. This was all I needed to ditch the phone. I agree that these phones will be used, are being used, to control us. God bless. Anna

Wow, Polly, just watched your video, "Live Under Law Or Live Under Grace," and it truly was amazing!! That was one of the best "sermons" I've ever heard! Inspiring and truthful. We have to know who we are in the Lord and walk in that knowledge and Spirit.
Thank you for what you do and God bless you!

Polly, I see that many readers offer links and search information, but your pages are copy-protected and it's not possible to use any of the reader's provided links. Maybe you could post a note to that effect? Thanks!

Hi Polly. We are surrounded by sheep in Moose Jaw Saskatchewan. As far as giving up the phone goes? Ill probably give it up next year when the contract is up. But until then we are handing out legal notices of liability and information pkgs. Informing business of the criminal acts they are being used to commit by our health department. I wish I had money for you but We are unsure as to what the tyrannical bastards are going to do next. Maybe in the new year if we make it that far.
Love from the prairies.

Hi, Polly! Can you (or others seeing these comments) perhaps make some recommendations of what to use instead? I've been looking and having a hard time finding a non-smart phone.... even flip phones are smart! Also, what carriers are people using? I'm currently with AT&T and looked into swiching, but can't find clear answers as to what companies are the "cleanest"....
