The coming corporate techno-feudalism

Relevant post in December 2020: The US corporatocracy: A proto-totalitarianism It should be clear to everyone that serious attempts are being made to enter an era of globalist, corporate techno-feudalism. This is feudalism inspired by the Chinese system. How do we know this? First, the 2020 election was blatantly stolen, in the face of thousands of witnesses and books-worth of material and statistical evidence ; and the federal government did nothing about it, because the federal government is who stole it. Second, the way all serious attempts at investigation are being frustrated. Example 1: Arizona legislature has fought tooth and nail with the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors to perform a real audit of ballots, in an effort that has been frustrated by every dirty trick imaginable. Finally, a real audit is scheduled to start April 22 . The propaganda now is that it's a sham because it's done by people with integrity. Example 2: When governor Kemp in Georgia

Reddit censors new administrator's ties to actual pedophiles

I used to frequent Reddit for years, primarily sections focused on text more so than cat pictures. I contributed – or inflicted upon the world, as you prefer – comments and opinions on a variety of topics. Reddit always leaned young and left. However, in 2016, with Hillary launching "Correct The Record", larger and larger portions became unwelcoming to a centrist. The "politics" subreddit was first: the moderators were replaced and the subreddit switched to 100% Hillary propaganda. In time, other seemingly neutral subreddits, such as /r/news, followed. By 2021, everything except leftism seems to be verboten in most parts of Reddit, and conservative enclaves must be wary. In 2020, I was summarily banned from /r/news for a comment which I posted in a different subreddit (/r/inthenews), where I criticized Australia's heavy-handed approach to Covid-19, citing several sources. Immediate bans for wrongthink are now par for the course. In particular, anything skepti

External locus of control

Related post: Liberalism is fascism; conservatism is liberalism (December 2020) The principal divide between the current right and left in the US is the acceptance vs. rejection of an internal locus of control. The left rejects an internal locus of control, and projects it externally. Under an internal locus of control, I have real, meaningful power in the now to act on things that affect me. I'm not a victim of other people, even if they were mean to me. I'm not a victim of systems, even if they're unfair. I'm not a victim of my past decisions, even if they were stupid. I can use power in the now to change the present and build a future I desire. Under an external locus of control, I have no such power. I am a victim of other people and external events. I am a victim of people who were mean to me, I'm a victim of systems that are unfair, I'm a victim of my past decisions, which in fact were not truly my decisions, since they were influenced by unfair sys

WaPo's retraction of Trump Georgia phone call hoax

This retraction , of course, is like condolences after blowing up a wedding. (Actually, the US pays hush money ) The curious part is how the Washington Post retracted anything at all. Don't they realize, as a mouthpiece of an oligarchic state that rules using mass propaganda, censorship and selective enforcement, they don't have to retract anything? Don't they realize we live in a country where federal agencies counterfeit evidence; spy on a duly elected President; eventually find a single person to blame, and sentence him to probation? They conduct years-long, $32 million hoax investigations into the President, which find nothing? They avoid investigation of their allies, where there's lots to find ? They completely ignore extensive election fraud , in which some agencies likely directly participate ? And they do all this to replace the most popular and effective President in decades with a lying , now senile puppet who doesn't have the presence of mind to

The pride inherent in the ability to follow

Hypothesis: those who follow the media, despite ample evidence, suffer from a syndrome of the "teacher's favorite pet". They pride themselves on understanding what the teacher is saying – and later, an article in The New York Times. They do not have the capacity to think beyond the content and question why they're being told those things; what they're not being told; why the magazine editors and the owners want them to have the beliefs that their articles reinforce. If you point out that the article is lying or misleading, this threatens their pride that comes from understanding it. Like good students, they think their ability to comprehend instructions is an achievement that makes them worthy as people. This is why "education" means so much to them – when in its essence, it means to accept the claims of others wholesale. It's the pride inherent in the ability to follow! It also offers a false sense of progress: the ideal of working to

2024: Candace Owens vs. Meghan Markle

Have you noticed Meghan Markle in the news recently? You may have spotted her in memes like these: CBS paid at least $7 million to Oprah's company for this interview of oppression. Why are the media investing so much into Meghan Markle? Well – how about this: Candace recently on Newsmax : "I'm spending a lot of time with a tutor, and I'm taking this very seriously." If Candace runs, Meghan is the response of the deep-state corporatocracy: As a woman of "color", she's one of a few who could challenge Candace. Not on her own; but with the full force of the media gaslighting and lying for her, just like they have for Hillary and Biden. Then add some indispensable election fraud, and her victory would be believable (if contentious). What do you think – is Meghan manipulative and psychologically abusive? Is she an asset to control Prince Harry? Pay no attention to her choice in style: A narrative protection shield is already being raised ar

The revolutionary pandemic

Don't miss my previous post today: The cynical pandemic Wow. In February 2010, an independent journalist published this article on Forbes, titled Why The WHO Faked A Pandemic . The journalist discussed the World Health Organization overhyping the dangers of swine flu. Key paragraph: In a September speech WHO Director-General Chan said "ministers of health" should take advantage of the "devastating impact" swine flu will have on poorer nations to get out the message that "changes in the functioning of the global economy" are needed to "distribute wealth on the basis of" values "like community, solidarity, equity and social justice." She further declared it should be used as a weapon against "international policies and systems that govern financial markets, economies, commerce, trade and foreign affairs." Someone recently discovered this article and posted it on Twitter. The article was unpublished within hours: Scree

The cynical pandemic

You cannot fully comprehend the world if you're unwilling to accept how cynical some of our "leaders" are, and what they're willing to do to achieve their ends. At least five US state governors that we know of forced Covid-positive individuals from hospitals into nursing homes, in most cases prohibiting nursing homes from refusing these patients. Examples : Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) issued an order that a long-term care facility “must not prohibit admission or readmission of a resident based on COVID-19 [coronavirus] testing requirements or results.” The policy was renewed three times before being rescinded in July 2020. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s (D-CA) administration ordered on April 10, 2020, that “patients hospitalized, or receiving treatment at an alternate care site, with COVID-19 can be discharged to a [skilled nursing facility] when clinically indicated.” Governors who ordered policies like these include Cuomo in New York; Whitmer in Michigan; Newsom in

Excellent news for Texas

I strongly support this. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜ƒ LUBBOCK, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – Texas Governor Greg Abbott made the “statewide announcement” Tuesday afternoon that it’s time to open Texas 100% and he ended the mask mandate. “Under no circumstance can someone be punished for not wearing a mask,” said Gov. Abbott. By next Wednesday, March 2 all businesses can open at 100%.

What the f... is going on in this world?

This is kinda funny: But this is ridiculous and depressing : What the f... is going on in this world? Is sense ever going to make a comeback? Are we stuck with educators acting like complete nutcases? How can we ever respect teachers and schools after this? They are showing themselves as complete buffoons! Here, let me remind you – October 20, 2020, NBC 26 on YouTube: Suppose we tested everyone for the common cold, using a test that has 10% false positives. If we treated everyone who dies after testing positive for the cold, as a death caused by the cold: what would be the estimated infection fatality rate? It would look pretty much exactly like this picture.

A world in which it's not worth existing

The mental patients have taken over the world, and now run the asylum. The people did not vote for this. Who cares about voters? "Fortify" the election, for our good! An unholy alliance of oligarchs with god complexes. Deep state apparatchiks. Propping up mental patients. Before, there was an inconspicuous elite. Now, they rule openly. Before, subtly advancing totalitarianism. Now, subtle as a sledgehammer. Before, the healthy could speak, but could not make a difference. Then they made a difference. The internet wasn't locked down! Wrong guy got elected! Bad – white supremacy! Now, the healthy cannot speak. Only the mentally ill. Every website, news outlet, social network and TV channel. Everyone who disagrees is a racist and a terrorist. Ban. Cancel. Deplatform. Kill! Mental illness now rules . News. Distortion. Fear. Censorship. Editors pushing the lie of the day. Media controlled by a few billionaires. Lie retracted the next day? It was effective. Does not

Covid-19 lockdowns and science

Excellent summary of what we know so far about Covid-19, its impacts and the effectiveness of lockdowns: COVID-19 Lockdowns: Liberty and Science It appears to be a pretty good compilation of factual stuff that is verboten in the media.

The Purge

We know that the protesters at the Capitol building were invited inside by security. There are multiple video angles of this. Here is one from the outside . Another one showing entry . This is one from the inside – series of tweets: scroll down for the one that says "Here’s the scary moment". There was another , but that one has now been removed in The Purge. So the protesters were invited in. At least some of them were antifa. We know because: (1) observers reported an antifa bus escorted by the police to DC, (2) diligent folks doxxed some of them, and (3) it's weird for a MAGA protester to sport a hammer-and-sickle tattoo. So the protesters were invited in, they walked loudly through the building – and Ashli Babbit, a protester and veteran with 4 tours of duty on her record, was murdered by a security guy when she attempted to climb through a hallway window: Meanwhile, half a year ago, "Black Lives Matter" rioters did this : That is fine though. That&

The complete uselessness of rationalists

In a nutshell: rationalists do not use their intellect to understand the world, or to take actions at decisive times, when knowing the correct action is necessary. Instead, they use it to "explain" things in hindsight. The rationalist use of intellect is intellectual masturbation. It is used because it feels good , not because it does good . It does not effectively predict the future, even in the short-term. It does not even help understand the present. It's used to intellectualize the past; it turns out being just-so stories, convenient narratives developed with full benefit of hindsight, which do not explain as much as explain away. It lacks the power to predict anything but the most humdrum outcomes. In a word, rationalism is useless . Case in point: current events. If rationalism had value, then rationalists should understand, in a way so there's no doubt: The major social and political threat that has been unfolding for the past 20 years. The major

Seth on computers

Interesting passage from The Early Sessions: Book 4 of The Seth Material . In 1965, Seth had this to say about the coming age of computers: "Seth deplored our ideas on war and peace, which must improve if we are to survive. This led into a discussion about computers, and Bill Gallagher’s personal idea of studying up on them for future use in business. Seth said computers would transform human life. He said Bill’s personal ideas were good ones; the inherent danger with them had to do with the type of salesman’s personality, the feeling of superiority and of having power over others, that might color the use of computers. He told Bill that it would require strict discipline on his part if he worked with computers in such a fashion." It seems this is coming true in spades. The warning was made personally for Bill Gallagher, but the trouble we are having with Big Tech now appears to be specifically due to a cynical and haughty arrogance. There is a "feeling of superio
