WATCH: The Secrets of Silicon Valley – What Big Tech Doesn’t Want You to Know James Corbett’s newest film documents the origins of big tech, and its ties to the military and intelligence establishment

Silicon Valley.

Nestled in the southern San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California, the Valley is not just a geographical location. It’s an idea. It’s an expression of the urge to digitize all of the information in the world, and to database, track and store that information.

And as we are now beginning to learn, the result of that digitization of everything is a world without privacy. A world where our ability to participate in public debate is subject to the whims of big tech billionaires. A world where freedom is a thing of the past and no one is outside the reach of Big Brother.

None of the above documentary is a surprise, I finally became somewhat aware when little twat Bush Junior became president in 1999. I had lived in a bubble until that time and suddenly I had a sense of acute foreboding which turned out to be real. My children were born at that point, couldn’t be sent back because I had realised the world was run by sociopaths.
In the face of what the worlds young are now facing I do not see a way out. The Orwellian nightmare we have found ourselves in cannot be overcome except by a major uprising in every corner of the globe. That isn’t happening any time soon. The inevitability of a warming planet, of a US and allies out of control and of the Neoliberal model destroying everything that was once good is now written into the future. I think that future is no longer tenable as we hurtle towards the possibility of a world war with a fascist corporate structure, criminal leaders and a population of serfs in the making.
Back in the 70s, 80s I spent some of my time protesting against injustice and war, against nuclear plants etc etc and none of it made the slightest difference.
Perhaps as a species we have run our course.

Identity Politics and “the inevitability of a warming planet” are the two blind alleys into which popular discontent and activism will be harmlessly diverted.
This will ensure that the “major uprising in every corner of the globe” simply never happens.’
The same people will remain in power, laughing up their sleeves as the deluded masses hyperventilate about toilets for trannies and the supposed plight of the polar bears.

Yep, choking away on oxygen-less, electro-charged polluted air in the smart city utopia. More worried about the Polar bears than their own incredible demise. Wonderful

We need to come to terms with what is REALLY happening with the weather. Man made emissions from vehicles, the military etc are having an impact, but as always with these people, there are more sinister forces at play which we need to be conscious of.
1 Geoengineering/chemtrails. They are real, they have been doing this for decades, we can only speculate as to what the real agenda behind all the current spraying programmes is, but we can be certain that they are spraying. They are deliberately manipulating the weather, and guess what?…..the WEATHER IS CHANGING.
2 Electromagnetic smog – this is a huge issue. Your microwave cooks at 2.4 GHz. Your Phone has Wifi on it which broadcasts at 2.4GHz. Same microwaves, same frequency, When you are at the pub in the heat, that’s say 100 to 200 phones all broadcasting at 2.4GHz. Now go to a football match. That’s 30,000 phones……all broadcating at 2.4 GHz. Now fast forward to 5G where every phone empowers the network using its relay system. Not good at all.
Interestingly, some speculate that the spraying of metals as chemtrails (aluminium and barium are often quoted as being in the trails) is being done to make us more electromagnetic sensitive……if our bodies become polluted with metals being sprayed (proven), then they hit us with a 1G to 5G super soup of EMF shite, that’s not going to do your average Joe much good.

Yeah, pulsing music sounds like a corporate video. Makes you want to stick to reading stuff.

Or take Sun Microsystems. Founded in 1982, the Silicon Valley software and hardware giant’s flagship Unix workstation, the “Sun-1”, as ComputerWorld explains, “owes its origins rather directly to a half-dozen major technologies developed at multiple universities and companies, all funded by ARPA.”

The clue is zionist.. Sun was acquired by Oracle in 2010 for $7.4 billion.

This article, revealing as it is, lacks a large and highly significant part of the emerging story…
the corruption that it touches on is such a vast field, and the need for a literature to document that story is so great, that I suggest a new journal should be instituted, to study this matter in detail, to bring into view, the experiences of all of those who have been victimized by economic zionism and to evolve ways to return our world to capitalism.

First a minute to explain,, the system of economics described by the term “economic zionism”, is responsible for the failure of western capitalism. EZ turned capitalism into a one person takes all crony-endowed, privately-owned, monopoly-powered corporation. EZ is a system with a goal to lock down and control all behaviors of mankind, and it imposes a duty for those who pursue that goal, to acquire the means to eliminate all competition and to build the tools necessary to block, deny and destroy all rising, emerging or developing competition. Hence one leg of EZ is to deny any possibility that someone can gain access to “economic space” [ES]. The ability to deny access is a monopoly power. The end goal of EZ is to have one entity (corporation) to own or control all assets in the world, to own and be the sole provider of all information, all property, and to be the sole dictator to all human behavior and to generate, direct and control at will, all flows of goods and services, and to be the sole beneficiary of the profits those flows generate, 24/7, every where in the world.

Capitalism, on the other hand, to be successful, demands that adequate rules of fair-play in the economic Space be established; that the entry of players into the economic space where profits can be made, be referred, and kept fair (equal access) and the information and knowledge environment be unrestrained, kept open to all, and kept operating without firewalls or pay to see vaults. Economic space should be available to all on equal terms, subject to enforced rules about fair disclosure and access. Adequate legal mechanisms should in place and made available to provide those damaged by unfair competition to be made whole. In capitalism a society should see the largest corporations fall and new ones rise as inventions and discoveries obsolete the products and improve the goods and services in the economic space. In monopoly, one should see the largest corporation surviving by acquiring ownership of the improved products or improvements in goods and services.

The problem in capitalism is greed. Greed drives competition and competition drives capitalism but unregulated, un umpired competition in the economic space (capitalism) is highly vulnerable to greed.

Unchecked greed leads to unfair, monopoly power and that leads to corruption of the competition in “economic space” that replaces capitalism with monopolism. Unbiased Justice no longer protects the playing field from greed; instead it promotes the interest of the greedy. Entry into the competitive space is no longer open to all or when it is, entry is not on the same terms as those with the monopolies. Outcome of all competition always benefits the EZ.

Economic Zionism is king of the mountain economics.

Back to the story referred in the link.. when corporate monopolies partner with governments or worse privatize into the corporate ownership the function or assets of governments greed sets in, and generates corruption.

My point about the story is ignores the active on going well funded extermination of competition processes that coordinated and conducted the reduction in numbers of competitors to but a few. Mircrosoft’s expensive operating system could not hold a candle in functionality or capability to Linux which was free, AOLs access was the same access on the same equipment many internet operators were using, IBM’s equipment was expensive and barely functional compared to cheaper and better for the purpose equipment, so we see economic Zionism at work. Remember the goal of EZ is that one corporation will rule the world, all governments, all people, all assets, all resources, all thoughts, all knowledge and access to any of it, will be made a part of, and controlled by, the one.

That brings me to the comment about 5g. 5g is the ultimate tool for Economic Zionism as 5G has the potential to provide one person (one corporation) with control over life and death, morality, thought, belief, human activity and human behaviors of every living person. It can also control non human (robotic) activity 5G is not dangerous to your Freedom it is the end of your freedom, if the few get their way! Even though predecessors to 5g ( Wifi, smart meters, chemtrails, proton impregnating light bulbs, etc) have proven their associated health risk to be immense, the providers of EG have partnered with government and they together are proceeding, announcing loudly as they go, that they have not investigated the health risks, for two reasons:
1) they know if EZ can install the 10s of 10000 antennas; 20,000 low earth satellites from private capital assisted by government grants, and the EZ know, if they can attach their equipment to every SMART meter equipped home, the EZ can not only invade every home to track and control its occupants, but the EZ can also sell, and make the home owners buy, IoT gadgets. Such access brings into reach, the contents of the womb and allows to control all progeny, all genetics, all thought, all activity, everything that used to be human, for its lifetime. EZ is a system of economics that profits from human activity, when one person controls all human activity, that person not only controls, but also owns the world, and everything it it.
2) the second reason for public admission that the health effects have not been examined, is that health concerns is an issue that the EZ can use to divide and conquer the opposition to their intentions to take over the world and to owning everything. Let’s not let them focus us on the health risks, that will come later, but even that seems to be part of the plan as more as more hospitals and cancer centers are being erected (5g interferes with cellular, molecular and genetic bio signaling but so what if one person owns it all).

What I think needs to be stopped, halted in its track, is 5g, not because of the health risk, though they are considerable, but because 5g threatens the composition and independence of our humanity. 5G places all humanity not just individual controls over behavior, but it can determine the existence of humanity and should not be in the hands of secret privately owned corporations. or in the hands of one or a very few persons.

what he heck does winner-takes-all have to do with Zionism?

It has nothing to do with religion, it is arrested development as an emotional one-year old. me, me, me.

I could shock you a lot more than that ‘2ronnie’s Corbett Report . . .

Indeed, direct energy weapons, (that can also alter the course of the Jet Streams), do not just steer & determine the weather for military purposes alone, also the commodity markets have derivative vested interests & corporate funds, available on the Chicago Stock Exchange, if wish to make money having a sporting bet on who will have WATER & FOOD, come harvest time …

Sad world gone mad, innit’ ? When Moscow had a world record 6 (six) minutes sunshine for the whole of December 2017 …
