The Laws of Forces of One are meant for Forces of One only, but I was allowed to share them, so You can use them as well. If you noticed they look like laws and "commandments". Basically, these are "programs" or "codes" like You mentioned it correctly. Through them we are able to program ourselves (for example like computer) to live in a Harmony, care for others and love them. If You noticed ideologies, indoctrination, religious dogmas, media, movies, newspapers, magazines, books, movies, videos, music and even speech and words - can "program" people into thinking in one way or the other. This is how illuminati/cabal are "programming" Earth's Population.
Yet it can be used in both ways, in evil and Good.
The obvious example of evil/dark programming is happening right now in Ukraine. All media of Ukraine is telling only the picture which dictates Ukrainian government. It of course is showing Ukraine as "a victim", west as "saviors" and Russia as "aggressor" and "enemy number 1". All russian media is banned and censored, as they are saying completely opposite - real picture of all events with proofs and showing all atrocities which are being committed by ukrainian "national guard" (which follows in an ideology of WW2 nazism).
Western media obviously is allowed to be broadcasted, as it brings the picture which U.S. and EU governments are saying. Due to this, People of Ukraine don't see the whole picture and as western and ukrainian medias are demonizing Russia, so are ukrainian People hate Russia as "enemy number 1". Such is the programming and this is how it works.
Humanity don't used to call laws as "programs" or "codes". And it sounds and feels not comfortable, because obviously no one wants to be "programmed". But such is one of the basics of Creation. We Forces of One have figured this out long ago, so it is completely "OK" for us to be programmed. The big plus is here that we know when we are being programmed". And we accept to be programmed in one way or the other.
This is another lesson which Humanity will have to learn if It will want to completely get rid Itself from shackles of slavery, as slavery works the same way - through programming and indoctrination of religious dogmas, financial establishment or simple helplessness which comes from fear.
"to serve so that you could be saved"
"to serve so that you could be rewarded with money/premium/gift"
"to serve or you will be destroyed, because we have super powers"
These are the basics. This is known to Humanity as "inconvenient truth".
In terms of spying,
recently google, facebook and microsoft (that is skype and messenger) were making big steps in collecting more information on users. These 3 corporations are known for making "backdoors" in their software, so to allow those with "the keys to the backdoor" to open it. This gives ability for governments (to be precisely illuminati/cabal) and their information agencies like NSA and GCHQ to collect data quite effortlessly. The data U.S., UK and Australian governments are interested in are names, place of living, photos, interests, relatives, friends and most importantly - opinion on world affairs. They need this to be "omniscient" in their thinking. This also helps them to find Individuals faster and more sinisterly, they need this to mark Everyone that is against them and as well All Those that have quite a big IQ. It is like Henry Ford said "we want workers not thinkers".
Otherwise everything around the World is stable (more or less).With much Harmony, Peace, Love and Prosperity.
