BIG Tech, for the most part, is centered in Silicon Valley in the southern San Fran Bay area of California, a/k/a Commiefornia. And just to lend some texture and context, there is a certain familiarity with said locale, having recently returned from a vacay in nearby Belvedere Island in Marin County, traveling all the way from Israel, too. Even more so, having co-authored (with Joe Newby from Conservative Firing Line) the only non-hagiographic book on Facebook (a main offender within) by exposing its nefarious underbelly through “BANNED: How Facebook Enables Militant Islamic Jihad “, well, the term familiarity is more than an understatement. Second skin.
NOW that that is established, it must be put out there: no doubt, the emergence of Big Tech has added many positive benefits to societal’s landscape – from the most benign activities to the most complex. In fact, this author has been known to appear dumb-stuck, when listening to a nearest and dearest describe some of the life-saving procedures he performs during cardio-thoracic surgery – that which couldn’t be accomplished (as safely) without a multiplicity of hi-tech innovations via computer-assisted robotics. It doesn’t get any weightier than that.
EVEN so, not unlike what is coined “Frankensteinian”, what can be used for the greater good, a/k/a the “social good”, can morph into an out of control monster in every walk of life, that is, if not reined in and monitored. Such is the case with Big Tech via its direct hand in the death of free speech, that which underpins every free society. More pointedly, it is through the (algorithmic) suppression of speech which deviates from leftist orthodoxy and its PC strictures that Big Tech reveals itself. Yes, as succinctly assessed at The Hill: Big Tech censorship of conservative users is alive and well!
WHICH brings us to the discussion at hand; a two-tier level of evil which knows no bounds. Literally. In the main, both are under the radar, but not for long. Of course, needless to say, like-minded silencers within the Demonrat Media Complex will never and never alert the public.
STILL, before we segue to the aforementioned forces of evil, it must be internalized: China’s state actors are no more suppressive than Big Tech’s overlords, they are just bolder and more open about it. For what amounts to a Herculean struggle against China’s repressive tactics and dictates, millions strong in Hong Kong are risking their lives to protest against the Chinese regime, as well as those who support the dictatorship from within their heretofore island of freethinking. Naturally, Facebook’s and Twitter’s (with other Big Tech accomplices) far-left commandants are more than pleased (ideologically and bottom-line-wise) to assist the Chinese dictatorship! Crackdown.
China’s largest state-run news agency, Xinhua News, is buying ads on Facebook and Twitter to smear protesters in Hong Kong, a new tactic being used to influence how the rest of the world perceives the pro-democracy demonstrators.
An estimated 1.7 million people in Hong Kong, roughly a quarter of its population, took to the streets on Sunday to denounce Beijing’s attempts to interfere in the semi-autonomous territory. But China has amassed soldiers across the border in Shenzhen and appears to be stepping up its propaganda efforts online through paid ads on Facebook and Twitter, as well as unpaid content on platforms like YouTube…..continue here….
BACK to the less than obvious poisons flying under the (public) radar ala the wings of Big Tech and its real affinity – the not so “social good!”
TO wit, how many are familiar with China’s “social credit” system? If not, time to catch up to speed, as its nexus to Silicon Valley is closer than a pig is to its sh*t – that close. By extrapolation, Silicon Valley’s far-left milieu is gearing up with power brokers, inside and outside the Beltway, to extract the same (obedient) coinage from Americans, that is, if they want to “earn” “social credit” points of their own to enjoy this and that.
Have you heard about China’s social credit system? It’s a technology-enabled, surveillance-based nationwide program designed to nudge citizens toward better behavior. The ultimate goal is to “allow the trustworthy to roam everywhere under heaven while making it hard for the discredited to take a single step,” according to the Chinese government.
It can also award points for charitable donations or even taking one’s own parents to the doctor.
Punishments can be harsh, including bans on leaving the country, using public transportation, checking into hotels, hiring for high-visibility jobs, or acceptance of children to private schools. It can also result in slower internet connections and social stigmatization in the form of registration on a public blacklist.
China’s social credit system has been characterized in one pithy tweet as “authoritarianism, gamified.”
Authoritarianism, gamified. https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/blog/2015/10/in-china-your-credit-score-is-now-affected-by-your-political-opinions-and-your-friends-political-opinions/ … ht @VitalikButerin @FrankPasquale
In China, Your Credit Score Is Now Affected By Your Political Opinions – And Your Friends’ Politi…
China just introduced a universal credit score, where everybody is measured as a number between 350 and 950. But this credit score isn’t just affected by how well you manage credit – it also reflects…
Beijing maintains two nationwide lists, called the blacklist and the red list—the former consisting of people who have transgressed, and the latter people who have stayed out of trouble (a “red list” is the Communist version of a white list.) These lists are publicly searchable on a government website called China Credit.
The Chinese government also shares lists with technology platforms. So, for example, if someone criticizes the government on Weibo, their kids might be ineligible for acceptance to an elite school.
Public shaming is also part of China’s social credit system. Pictures of blacklisted people in one city were shown between videos on TikTok in a trial, and the addresses of blacklisted citizens were shown on a map on WeChat.
Some Western press reports imply that the Chinese populace is suffocating in a nationwide Skinner box of oppressive behavioral modification. But some Chinese are unaware that it even exists. And many others actually like the idea. One survey found that 80% of Chinese citizens surveyed either somewhat or strongly approve of social credit system.
IT CAN HAPPEN HERE
Many Westerners are disturbed by what they read about China’s social credit system. But such systems, it turns out, are not unique to China. A parallel system is developing in the United States, in part as the result of Silicon Valley and technology-industry user policies, and in part by surveillance of social media activity by private companies.
Here are some of the elements of America’s growing social credit system……
If current trends hold, it’s possible that in the future a majority of misdemeanors and even some felonies will be punished not by Washington, D.C., but by Silicon Valley. It’s a slippery slope away from democracy and toward corporatocracy.
In other words, in the future, law enforcement may be determined less by the Constitution and legal code, and more by end-user license agreements.
BUT if that is not enough to make your freedom-loving blood boil, well, perhaps the nexus between the titans at Big Tech with a very much under the radar and nefarious activity will raise the alarm – as it relates to Epstein, who is, supposedly, six feet under and burning in hell!
NOW, ask yourselves: who better than Silicon Valley’s “Masters of the Universe” are as adept at scrubbing themselves down the rabbit hole, so to speak, of course, with their best engineering wizards reversing the dirty deed(s)??
In 1969, John Brokman wrote, “Man was nothing more than a model, a technique. It is necessary to construct a new model…“
One of the little-discussed aspects of deceased charged child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s life was his deep involvement with the school of thought called “transhumanism.”
It was briefly reported on by the New York Times and we have also covered it at this outlet, particularly his desire to create a sort of bizarre human farm at his Arizona ranch where he would impregnate several accomplished women to try to disseminate the world with little Epsteins.
“On multiple occasions starting in the early 2000s, Mr. Epstein told scientists and businessmen about his ambitions to use his New Mexico ranch as a base where women would be inseminated with his sperm and would give birth to his babies, according to two award-winning scientists and an adviser to large companies and wealthy individuals, all of whom Mr. Epstein told about it,” The Times reported last month, according to Infowars.
Old Thinker News noted this week that Epstein’s involvement with transhumanism “was characterized as an isolated bizarre fascination, but the community he was involved in is deadly serious about their goals.”
As the New York Times reported, Epstein gained access to the scientific community through Brockman, a little-known but very influential agent of transhumanism.
In 2000, the Wall Street Journal published an article called “At the Growing Billionaires’ Dinner, Tech Stars Move to Grown-Ups’ Table.”
The Edge Billionaire Dinner hosted all the men we now know as the major Tech Giants; Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Evan Williams, Bill Joy, Larry Page and others.
And now, according to Yahoo Finance, the group has been deleting posts on its website about Epstein in the wake of his arrest last month.
Epstein is still listed as a guest in 2000 on the website for the Edge dinner, Old Thinker News reports. Listed in 2001 is Marvin Minsky, who has been accused of having sex with a trafficking victim.
Brockman’s 1969 book, Afterwords, foreshadowed the transhumanist philosophy which was to come, envisioning man as merging with machine. ‘
“Man was nothing more than a model, a technique. It is necessary to construct a new model… The human delusion lies in the belief that the human being is the basis of reality and the final goal of the evolution.”
The Edge billionaire meetings have centered around the future of genetic engineering, biocomputation and re-designing humanity for a transhuman era. Physicist Freeman Dyson depicted those leading this group as having a god-like power to create entirely new species on earth in a “New Age of Wonder”. He describes them as:…continue reading the entire satanic evil here, that is, if you dare!
CONCLUSIVELY and consequentially, and as affirmed from the outset: Big Tech’s emerging technologies run the gamut – from assisting surgeons who perform life-saving surgery, to creating the availability of this and that. Resultant, its innovators and engineers have made modern life more efficient and forward-thinking. No doubt.
BUT the trade-off has been the creation of men and women at Big Tech’s tippy top who (not unlike the genocidal evil of the Nazis and their American/western successors within the Eugenics Movement – whose utter belief in mastering the human race via eugenics and controlled breeding is their entitlement and duty) are ready, willing, and able to destroy anyone who stands in their way – man, woman, and child. Ask yourselves: does anyone wonder why those on the far-left have an inviolate belief in unfettered abortion, even up until actual birth??
AS such, how else should they be deemed, other than…….
SILICON VALLEY, BIG TECH MASTERS Of THE UNIVERSE – THOU HAST BECOME EVIL!!
