A captured agency is defined as a regulatory agency which, rather than serving the public interest, is largely under the influence of the industry or sector that it is charged with regulating.
The USA’s Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which is tasked with regulating communications in America, appears to have given up all pretence of safeguarding the interests of the public. Josh del Sol, director and producer of the award-winning documentary, Take Back Your Power, which investigated so-called “smart” meters, has now turned his attention to this agency.
The FCC recently rubber-stamped the rollout of 5G mobile technology across America; this will result in the use of much higher frequency bands (24 to 100+ GHz) and a massive deployment of mini mobile phone towers. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, a former lobbyist for the wireless industry, stated in his earlier June press conference that “We won’t wait for the standards to be first developed… we will make ample spectrum available”.
Josh del Sol’s new YouTube video, Gestapo in the USA, contains explosive footage of the proceedings which led to the adoption of the new rules; a decision which will see planetary life blanketed with ultra-high microwave frequencies – that have never been tested as safe.
The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) states on its website that, “The ACMA is already working to identify ways that 5G technologies can be facilitated in Australia”.
Is this yet another example of a regulatory agency serving industry interests, whilst bolstering government revenue through the sale of spectrum licences, at the expense of public health?
