Digital ID and Our Obsession with “Identity”

Karen Hunt

I am not a number. I am a free man.”
#6, The Prisoner

In the 1960s TV show, The Prisoner, Patrick McGoohan’s character is an unnamed British intelligence agent who resigns from his job for reasons never explained, is gassed, and wakes up imprisoned in a deceptively lovely place called The Village.

He is assigned the number Six to identify him. In the first episode, he meets with number Two, who tells him, “The information in your head is priceless. I don’t know if you realize how valuable a property you are.”

In that first meeting, number Six finds out that “they” have been monitoring him his whole life. Number Two tells him, ‘There’s not much we don’t know about you, but one likes to know everything.”

This obsession with “knowing” has been going on for thousands of years. To be reduced to a number so that we can be more easily studied and categorized. To lose our individuality, while at the same time being told we are important because of the information we carry inside of us. What does that do to a person’s sense of self?

It seems that the more we “know” about ourselves, the less real we become. Perhaps the natives were on to something when they refused to be photographed, believing that the cameras were stealing their souls. Each time we offer more of ourselves into technological devices, do we become less of a person out here—in the “real” world? What is real? Do we even know anymore? They used to say, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” But pictures can make fantasy real now and reality fake.

Identification has evolved over thousands of years from physical symbols and skin markings or tattoos, to the written word and now, to biometric verification. You could say humans have always been obsessed with statistics, or data collection.

The word “statistic” comes from the 18th century German word Statistik, which meant the “analysis of data about the state.” For governments, data collection is of special value.

The first known instance of a government collecting data of its citizens dates back to Babylon in about 3,800 BC. Governments needed to know how many people there were so they could calculate how much food was needed to feed them. A basic and necessary calculation.

There is a book in the Bible called the Book of Numbers, where God instructed Moses in the wilderness of Sinai to count those who were able to fight. The best-known biblical example is when Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem to be counted and that’s why Jesus was born there.

The Roman Empire gave power to a censor who was responsible for maintaining the census, such as overseeing government finances and supervising public morality.

It was King Henry V of England who in 1414 implemented the first “passports” for those traveling on the king’s business to foreign countries.

The Metropolitan Police Act 1829 recognized the need for police to gather records so that files could be kept on individuals, identified numerically.

By 1849, the Netherlands had developed the first decentralized personal number (PN) system. And by 1936, the United States was issuing the first Social Security cards.

From the mid 1800s onwards photo and fingerprinting identification became important within the identification system as well.

It was around 1977 that all of this information started being fed into computers. And that’s when this obsession with identification really took off. Computers made it possible to collect and store masses of information on people.

In 2004, the US deployed its first statewide automated palm print databases, used mainly by the FBI to catch offenders.

In 2010, Aadhaarthe world’s largest biometric digital ID system debuted in India.

The system captures people’s fingerprints and/or iris scans and assigns a unique 12-digit Aadhaar number. As of 2019, almost 1.2 billion people had voluntarily enrolled in the program, which is intended to simplify and speed up verification for government programs while also reducing fraud.”

Biometric verification “hit the consumer market in 2013 when Apple included a fingerprint sensor in the iPhone 5S. Other smartphone manufacturers have followed suit. Apple Touch ID was later supplemented with Face ID in the iPhone X in 2017.”

The computer was supposed to make our lives easier, more convenient. We would no longer be drowning in paperwork. Each person would be easily identifiable. This has been anything but the case.

How many ways are we now required to prove who we are? Whereas once it was our physical selves, simply our height and weight, the color of our eyes, the fact that we were known in the village of our birth, that was it. People weren’t having “identity crises.” People weren’t obsessed with categorizing themselves in a hundred different ways, or listing their pronouns, or validating their existence by the number of likes they got on social media.

That is what is happening to us now. This obsession with proving identity is like a snowball rolling down a mountain, building in size and speed with no way of stopping. Every way that the government can possibly identify citizens and take their data is now being implemented, and it is still never enough. Speech recognition, iris recognition, facial recognition, DNA sequencing, hand geometry, and vascular pattern recognition, which relies on blood vessel patterns in the hands, even monitoring each person’s unique heartbeat.

Sometimes I wonder if the “mentally ill” wandering the streets and talking to themselves have really tapped into all that information floating around. Where is all that information? Where does it go? Is it trapped in some other dimension that we don’t understand? Maybe that massive build-up of endless chatter about everything and nothing breaks through somehow and into the consciousness of those who hear voices—just bits and pieces of it.

It would be difficult not to go crazy under those circumstance. We’re all being turned a little (or maybe a lot) crazy by this weight of information being sucked out of us, fed into the Vast Machine where calculations are made, and then regurgitated back into our brains and our bodies. Used not just to collect information as was once the case, but to control us with that information.

Anyone who wants to influence and manipulate citizens, be it governments, pharmaceutical companies, marketing companies—any kind of company, or individual—political parties, thieves, those with perverse inclinations, blackmailers, assassins, you name it…

have access to where you live, your phone numbers, your physical description, your photographs, your age, your medical problems, all of your legal transgressions throughout your lifetimes whether serious crimes or minor infractions, the names of your parents, children, and spouses, your political party affiliations, where you work and what you do, the property that you own and its value, and sometimes even your psychotherapists’ notes, doctors’ records, and financial information.”

They can find out what you like to do in your spare time, your weaknesses and your strengths, if you own a dog, every country you’ve traveled to and when, if you are sensitive, sweet, angry, on the edge of violence. They can calculate if you are religious, a liar, a hypocrite, if you are a spreader of mis or disinformation, an insurrectionist. Do you display your pronouns, how many medications do you take, are you a drug addict? The list is endless.

It all started so simply. Just a way to count how many people lived in a certain place, or to prove ownership of land, or that you traveled on the king’s business.

Now, instead of you being the ultimate proof of who you are, there are a hundred different ways you’re being identified by the Vast Machine and if you get out of sync with that machine, you are in trouble. There isn’t even a person behind a desk anymore that you can go to, look into their eyes, and yell in frustration, “Look, here I am, this is me!”

If you cease to exist in the Vast Machine, you cease to exist outside of it. It is nearly impossible to escape the Vast Machine that is absorbing us into it. Every bit of our being. It is as if it has taken our obsession with identity upon itself. It insists that we prove who we are, over and over, and the more we do, the less satisfied it seems to be.

IBM Quantum Computer

Of course, at this point, it’s only able to perform that one specific calculation, meaning we’re still a few years from quantum computing taking over the world.”

A few years? That’s not very long. It sounds concerning. So why do we keep doing this?

Digital computers will soon reach the limits of demanding technologies such as AI. Consider just the impact of these two projections: by 2025 driverless cars alone may produce as much data as exists in the entire world today; fully digitizing every cell in the human body would exceed ten times all of the data stored globally today.  In these and many more cases we need to find ways to deal with unprecedented amounts of data and complexity. Enter quantum computing.

But, why? Why is this necessary?

I don’t think we comprehend what is driving this insatiable obsession with collecting every single bit of data stored in billions of humans’ minds, every single intimate detail from sexual habits to favorite TV shows, from the poorest child begging for food on the streets of Mumbai to the richest teenager in Beverly Hills, whining to his mom that he has to have the latest I-phone or he’s literally going to die.

It can’t just be about making us buy more stuff or about billionaires’ egos as they race to see who can “rule the world.”

There’s got to be more to it than that.

For all the ways we have learned to gather information, for all the machines we have built to help us organize and calculate it and use it to control the populace, the further that control seems to be slipping through our fingers. Of course, those at the top will never admit it. They think they just need to make a few more adjustments.

Microsoft is sure they can “get it right.” To that end they are funding ID2020

They justify their digital ID by telling us that “the ability to prove who you are is a fundamental and universal human right. Because we live in a digital era, we need a trusted and reliable way to do that both in the physical world and online.

If it is my inherent right, why does Microsoft have to give it to me? What they are really doing is taking it away from me.

The Covid crisis was the ultimate justification for the gathering of more and more data under the guise of health and safety. To that end, Microsoft built a team of global partners. Here are four of them:

GAVI: The Vaccine Alliance. Founded and funded by The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to the tune of US$ 4.1 billion to date.

Accenture. Dealing in cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, sustainability. It is no surprise to find that Accenture’s top 3 funders are Vanguard Group, BlackRock and State Street Corportation.

The Rockefeller FoundationWorking to “boost vaccination rates and improve global health equity, The Rockefeller Foundation is working with in-country partners to gain knowledge, share insights, and create more demand for vaccines in communities with low vaccination rates.”

And the Big One, MicrosoftThe Intercept article exposes “The Microsoft Police State”:

Microsoft’s links to law enforcement agencies have been obscured by the company…. Microsoft has partnered with scores of police surveillance vendors who run their products on a “Government Cloud” supplied by the company’s Azure division and that it is pushing platforms to wire police field operations, including drones, robots, and other devices.

In the wake of 9/11, Microsoft made major contributions to centralized intelligence centers for law enforcement agencies.

By 2016, the system had ingested 2 billion license plate images from ALPR cameras (3 million reads per day, archived for five years), 15 million complaints, more than 33 billion public records, over 9,000 NYPD and privately operated camera feeds, videos from 20,000-plus body cameras, and more. To make sense of it all, analytics algorithms pick out relevant data, including for predictive policing.

Microsoft owns patent for A CRYPTOCURRENCY SYSTEM USING BODY ACTIVITY DATA

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Microsoft are spending billions in order to identify everyone on the planet so they can vaccinate every single human being; implant a device inside us for buying and selling using cryptocurrency; put it all together into a digital ID—so you can “prove” who you are.

ICC, Mastercard, IBM join ID2020 Good Health Pass initiative

ID2020 launched the Good Health Pass Collaborative to encourage interoperability between the COVID-19 health credentialing solutions being developed by numerous organizations.

Members of the new initiative include the Airports Council International (ACI), Hyperledger, COVID-19 Credentials Initiative, International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), Mastercard and numerous others.

MIT and their “invisible ink” vaccine tattoos

Researchers have now developed a novel way to record a patient’s vaccination history: storing the data in a pattern of dye, invisible to the naked eye, that is delivered under the skin at the same time as the vaccine.

The research was—of course—funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, as well as the Koch Institute.

It all started, a long time ago, with symbols and markings on our skin. And here we are, back again, doing the same thing. Are we really advancing or are we actually returning full circle to where we were at the beginning. Back to proving our identities by cutting into our skin in order to identify who we are with numbers and symbols.

I’ve been watching The Prisoner again. I remember watching it as a child. It was strange and compelling. I didn’t understand it. I now read with a chuckle that McGoohan made it for a “small audience—intelligent people.”

The last episode of the show is exactly the same as the first. Six cannot be freed from captivity. He must continually fight against unknown forces that seek to unlock his deepest secrets and steal his stories, all while trying to turn him into an obedient, empty shell.

McGoohan said the final scene is meant to show how “freedom is a myth.” There is no conclusion to the series because “we continue to be prisoners.”

Who put us in this prison? Is it some outside force or is it ourselves?

How do we free ourselves from this obsession with proving who we are when the more we try, the further we are lost inside the Vast Machine*.

Typical Telegraph misinformation. Babylon as a city or an empire did not exist for about 1500-2000 years after 3,800 BC. Maybe this referred to a city in Sumer.

Quantum computer allow computation of some algorithms that classical computers can’t perform efficiently (including breaking commonly used public key encryption systems), but it doesn’t help with data storage or even AI algorithms. Massively parallel computation (cellular automatons) helps with AI, but that’s different than quantum computers.

Lift my head, I’m still yawning.

The first known instance of a government collecting data of its citizens dates back to Babylon in about 3,800 BC.

That’s when the parasitical intrusion upon humanity started, and the first autocratic city-states, what is known as “civilisation” were founded. Civility is a nice word for obedience.

The common Anunnaki theory claims that the alien parasites genetically modified human beings to create a slave race. I disagree with this. That’s what they would like to do but have not succeeded- or at least they have only partially succeded, with some human beings escaping their reach.

The entity named “Melchizedek ” is mentioned only a handful of times in the Bible. It is this entity, an emissary of Yahweh the chief Annunaki or Archon (=”ruler”), that brought what later became the Abrahamic program of spiritual slavery to the planet. The Abrahamic script is derived from Babylonian so-called religion.

Some of the so-called “gnostic” passages in the Nag Hammdi scrolls seem to describe that these aliens are not from outer space but were created accidentally by the Goddess as she gave birth to our biosphere.

The human shells that drive the NWO today are under total control of these entities, via lust for power and distorted sexuality.

Civilisation is to serve its other, Christ’s definition.
In order to develop we specialise so each and every one dont need to be his own carpenter, his own doctor, his own engineer, artist, police man, m.m. Its more effective when we contribute with each our specialised job together.

That’s an awfully long piece of writing to tell “us” all of the things we’ve known since 1983 and nothing new …
Why not help us understand what to do about it? And if there’s naught we can do about all this, why are you writing? C’mon…
PS A very bland suggestion to all “journalists”; whenever you’re tempted to write “We”, “Us”, “everyone”, use “most people” or “the majority of humans”. If nothing else, you’ll add a word or two to your word count (ka-ching!).

The thing that destroyed every civilization in human history is still out there stalking us and will end up destroying all life on the planet: human hubris.

Data storage is simply the latest and most absurd manifestation thereof. Whether the psychos at the top ever take advantage of it is irrelevant: it would be done anyway.

Why? For the same reason people climb Mr. Everest: because it’s there. Because we can. We can accumulate quadzillions of data – ain’t we something!

But do we need so much data? Who cares: accumulating it is all that matters. And if our storage facility goes bust what happens to the data? We’ll just build a bigger, better one and start over.

“Because we can!!!!!”

:- The data facilitating propaganda or crony businesses; the latter may use it to hone machine learning.
:- Facilitating more totalitarianism*- and imperialism, including cyber-war.

Newest PM Rich Sunak is heavily invested in making the UK a world beating technofascist state.

Not for his government are such lowly tasks such as the immigration crisis (Ukrainians, Hong Kongers, and Albanians given freedom to access FREELY what’s on offer freely to taxpayers plus accommodation), so much mass immigration over the last years during Covid lockdowns that Tory local Govn’t complain ‘NO ROOM AT THE INNS’.

Nor can his government be bothered with the NHS scandals of 10% of pop on waiting lists (20 neonatal babies and moms to 1 midwife).

Nor the cost of living crisis and crippling energy costs are an issue.

No none of the above are important to Sunak and techno/transhumanist/globalist Hunt or Gove.

The Sunak Govn’t is going to focus on technology. After all his wife’s non taxed billions are wrapped up in her father’s company Infosys that gave us the Aadhar system.

There’s a reason that Covid became synonymous with Certificate Of Vaccination ID.

BECAUSE THAT WAS IT’S REAL PURPOSE.

The media is based on a fundamental lie: it continues to propagate a vision that no longer has any validity, if it ever did. It is of course the Left/Right theatre, the drone about specific imperialisms, the projection of a potent dissident community which is actually just a showbiz phenomenon largely revolving around the self-indulgent obsessions of adolescents deliberately exploited by consumerism etc. Of course the papers continue to play into this model and encourage the population to keep distracted and fixate on their sexual orientation or whatever.

It is now undeniable to any who haven’t totally surrendered their critical faculties that covid is a con but “the Left” could not see this initially because it violated the maxim that capitalism could not perform such a manoeuvre without destroying itself. It never occurred to them that the unprecedented crisis they themselves so confidently predicted would drive the ruling class into a previously “unthinkable” move and that a draconian last resort would be implemented. It is true that the old model of capitalism as it existed in the West is no longer “sustainable” and we are now looking at a new and terrifying world that will be initiated by swathes of depopulation.

But the old model is the one being ceaselessly recycled on the media.

The way “the left” behaved during the scamdemic is a classic example of how The Scum run the controlled right-left dialectic to such devastating effect, and how the dialectic serves as a a tool of mind control, to get people to behave and act in a certain way, harnessing the power of manufactured groupthink. If you (stupidly) buy into their fake left-right dialectic system (and do what Niki Raapana author of The Anti Communitarian Manifesto said we should try our best not to do which is to pick a side when presented with such an option via whatever agenda they are pushing) and you identify as being on the left and you can visibly see confirmatory strong signals everywhere that your tribe is firmly on a certain side of the fence and behaving in a certain way, this creates a soul level deeply embedded robotic instinct to do the same. “The left” blindly went along with all the convid bull in perfect unison – in a large part because the lefty institutions (The Guardian and the education system for example) were all so uniformly adhering to and endorsing the insanity and all the deceiving useful idiots in the MSM who had already helped to nurture their misplaced trust in the fake media and all their favourite celebs and talking heads and bookworms and gardeners and politicians and health experts in their chosen media sphere – they were all saying the same thing – this is the big one, we must now act as one for each other, and the weak. Yeah, the biggest load of bullshit ever. But this concept of it being a load of bullshit – due to the intense level of mind control that has been created by the left wing press during their whole lives – creates nothing but resistance and anger which manifests as the kind of hysterical behaviour and reactions to contradictory information we saw from these people, and still see to this day. The whole fake manufactured system I have invested my entire life and soul into and never questioned once, has concluded beyond doubt that all this is real and we must act. The Scum are masters at running this crap.

One of the interesting things that KBG defector and whistle blower who warned America it was being subverted by nefarious Soviet-Communist actors and system – Yuri Bezmenov – says in this interview – is about how the unwittingly recruited mind controlled “left”, when they find out that they have been led up the garden path and start to see the truth, they can have the strongest violent reactions during their awakening, because, I guess, due to these deeply embedded wrong fake deliberately manufactured beliefs they hold so dearly. So it’s important to work on “the left”, they are not bad people for the most part, generally some good hearted people, which is also how they can be so majorly suckered into a chance to be the good samaritan. That and the virtue signalling of course, lol. But there is a very good opportunity here to wake these people up, they have been deceived by the institutions they trust, and their reaction to this truth could become powerful enough to have some major effects. The Scum have gone way too far with this, injecting peoples’ kids and pregnant women and 6 month old babies and all humans with what was always known to be poison. The left, who would of course be incensed by such things if they could see them clearly, armed with this knowledge, could be a formidable force.

Also, it increasingly looks like the Wuhan, bio-lab leak is fake. And that means SARS-COV-2 was merely theoretical and also fake.

Oxford City will be divided into six districts, and motorists will get fined if they leave their neighbourhood too often. agenda is to place electronic gates on key roads in and out of the city, confining residents to their own neighbourhoods.

Under the new scheme, if residents want to leave their zone, they will need permission from the Council which gets to decide who is worthy of freedom and who isn’t.

C40 is a global network of mayors “taking urgent action to confront the climate crisis.” Although Oxford is not one of the nearly 100 C40 cities, it is one of the 1,143 cities and local governments that have joined C40’s ‘Cities Race to Zero’ – cities whose leaders are “working urgently toward a decarbonised economy.”

Story first covered by world’s pre-eminent climate site Wat’sUpWithThat, now at:

Do not comply! OK, how’s that going to work out? You won’t be able to work. You won’t be able to rent a house. You could probably still buy one if you had the cash and it wasn’t already digitized into smithereens. You won’t be able to rent a car, buy a plane or train ticket, won’t be able to shop at stores, won’t be able to participate in society like others. You will be an outcast, forced into underground and black market systems and always watching your back. You will not be able to live your life the way you might have wanted and will be forced to live like second or third class citizens. If you can even be a citizen. You will have to grow your own, make your own beer or wine because you can’t buy it without a smart phone QR code, scavenge, hunt, and hide.

I don’t know, I’m against them having all the fun and me and mine having to take the hard road. Why don’t we make it the other way around? I mean, they deserve to live like shit, not us. We can’t run and hide from this by just not complying, not participating, not buying, etc. We have to take these psychopaths down.

Not talking about schadenfreude here, actually it IS shit… How could people be so gullible and stupid eh? And for what?

QR codes and other measures were only implemented for a short period of time because the people would not tolerate it.

And now that the lie of the pandemic, that never was more than seasonal flu like illness combined with medical negligence, is about to enter the lamestream… one needs more than a Putin puppet to distract us with ‘war’.

In terms of not complying: that is difficult and needs courage. There are other ways. Try not participating in the BS as a form of civil disobedience. Needs less courage and is also effective when performed on a large scale.

And don’t worry, given that of the few things that are real in this digital world includes excess mortality due to vaxx, people must wake up if they don’t want to be dispensed with by the system.

Rudolf Steiner has warned and identified this force, which is channelling order and control, and, mind slavery, several times in his lectures.He referred to it as Ahriman, and warned of a time when a network of cobwebs stretch across the world suggesting that this will be linked to de-humanisation.
But he also said that it was a stage that human beings had to go through, or face, in order to find again the correct path towards the evolutionary light.

And he said all this over 100 years ago . . .
For anybody with an intelligent, open mind, he teaches a safe way to negotiate the difficult path between too much technology and too much dreamy emotionality.
So the Ahrimanic influence you mention has its dreamy opposite side in what Steiner called the Luciferic influence.
Two devils, working together to undermine human evolution, if you like.

Absorbing the content of over 5,000 lectures and several books is pretty much a lifetime’s work, so it’s not for the impatient, but Steiner is truly astonishing.
Complicated subject matter is handled with clear use of language, whether in German or in the excellent English translations available, and he states the answers to core questions as if he had been there and seen them all work.

Only one thing has surprised me about his many comments on our future: He did indeed predict a horrible network of cobwebs entrapping us – in what was to him the future – but I don’t recall him hinting that anything as apocalyptic as what we are now experiencing was going to hit us quite so soon . . .
Perhaps he didn’t want to alarm us unnecessarily, or perhaps he just knew we would never believe it possible. Either way, he’s a compelling teacher in practically every field of life.

‘surplus population’

overpopulation is a joke, especially when one looks at the vast natural environment that Canada is.

But since most people live in cities that consist of endless building blocks that are made of tiny cubicles and because people (on average) cannot look further than… a club med vacation (same problem, but than at an exotic place), people feel as if the world is overpopulated..

What they should do when they go on vacation, is sit in a plane and look down below, and see the vast amount of nature that is passing their eyes before they enter their club med paradise.

But who needs that when you can also have free video during transportation?

Hallucinating about our current overshoot won’t make any difference to its outcome. “This mutha is going down!” Without us having to do anything about it – even if we could be arsed to.

Probably not too far into this century, the signs of our being on the downslope again should be unmistakable. We’re already noticing the fertility decline right now…

I was pulled over by the RCMP after their automatic licence plate reader signalled the officer that my insurance wasn’t valid. I showed him my paperwork which was valid and up to date. He eventually managed to link to the insurance company data base and confirm that I was insured. He warned me that if the system had been down I would have been in trouble. Of course you can’t argue with the Police as they are part of the same big gang that is busy figuring out more ways to tell us all what to do all the time.
I arrived at the Canadian border and was informed I needed to use my phone and the arrive can app or I would get a ticket. I told them to give me the ticket and I’d fight it in court. They declined that offer and after a while the arrive can app was dropped. I wasn’t keen on using a tracking device (cellphone) to interface with my government….

And so Sir Elton feels compelled to protest:

https://www.theguardian.com/music/2022/dec/09/elton-john-quits-twitter-policy-change-allows-misinformation

“All my life I’ve tried to use music to bring people together. Yet it saddens me to see how misinformation is now being used to divide our world.”

The passionately uttered sentiments of these baby boomer rockers has generally been so uniform that it surely calls for some comment. It is only rare cases (most prominently Van – who will be forever exalted thereby) that have shown the slightest actual movement of grey matter between their ears. The others have been embarrassingly eager to succumb to the script that has been so relentlessly pushed everywhere. This must be partly due to an astute reconfiguration that has been rumbling along underground ever since the “counter culture” (which itself had its artificial aspect e.g. MK-ULTRA sculpting at the corners). Basically the rulers cottoned on to the fact that “rebellion” was “in”. And a whole generation was raised on the notion that they were really groovy motherfuckers who ain’t gonna take no shit from nobody. Thus they were the spokespeople for “the little ones”, defenders of the Natural World against incursions from “The Man” and upholders of “sexual freedom” etc.

So much for the ideological atmosphere surrounding these Great Artists of the Rock Age. The more material atmosphere around them was a rarefied realm of vast wealth, yes-men, endless accolades for The Great Work These Artists Were Doing, and a general sense that they were all Mighty Public Figures who could act as moral guides for all humanity. And of course the media was ever ready to feed those swollen egos with a careful mixture of praise and a bit of rubbishing from the “Conservative Quarter” to add a bit of rebel sheen to the ones rubbished.

The fact that most of these sad jerks are indeed “Sirs” pretty much sums them up – though once again Sir Van is an honourable exception, being one who clearly does look beyond the protected circle of Covid/Trans/Climate Bullshit.

Most of these people are what used to be called B list at best. They need to try to stay relevant, so they jump on the outrage bandwagon any chance they get.

I read a snippet about what I consider some nasty remarks about Kirstie Allie by Howard Stern the other day. Hardly surprising that even old rebel shock jock Howard Stern now screams about anti-vaxxers, and God forbid anti mandate individuals, but he just had to make the remark that perhaps Kirstie died due to not seeing a doctor due to anti vax misinformation…. A lot to unpack in that idiotic statement of course, but it did get my outrage meter going at the sheer callousness of it, and he undoubtedly used it for ratings (and yes, to get to people like me who get outraged at the blatant stupidity of people who damned well should know better). I said something about it to a 30 year old I work with and he said “who?” LMAO, that made my day. Poor Howard, no longer relevant to anyone but his middle aged compliant “rebels” who aren’t rebels at all. And that goes for most of these pathetic has-beens. Their act may have been good back in the day, but all they have is their past now, and like for most of us, one’s past is irrelevant to those who don’t even know who you are.

The problem isn’t so much about identity as about power. Or rather, our identity becomes a problem because of power. 

Is it superstition to think photography can rob us of our souls? Or symbolic intuition of the dark magic of machines which reduce organic life in all its immersive meanings to two-dimensional objectifications, particularly at the disposal of others apparently possessed by malignant purposes of control (voodoo knowledge)?

From the first census to the final solution of the digital (c)age, the “masters of mankind” have been obsessed with ordering us as no more than numbers, units of (re)production to feed their insatiable appetites of “all for ourselves, nothing for others” (Adam Smith). They would have us, like them, to have no other purpose than to make machines of human relations reduced to one-dimensional resources. To the extent we come under their spell, we become possessed by their obsessions.  

The ideas of the ruling class rule by robbing us of the rich relations of life in all its natural abundance and wonder, which can root our identity in constant creativity of meaning and purpose beyond the obsessive-compulsive disorders of power over others. Others who become the Other, who defines antagonistic, enemy relations in a world sunken in social sins of alienation, the original sin which destroys the power with others we find in relations respecting free, egalitarian virtues of human worth.  

We are made to be preoccupied by problems of identity by those who steal its potential to create a world where “the free development of each is the condition for the free development of all” (Marx), where we are ends or values in ourselves rather than utilitarian means at the disposal of others.

Live free or die the death of the soul that is taken from us every time we fall for the dark magic of this machine of misery.

—–

I had dropped more or less by chance into the only community of any size in Western Europe where political consciousness and disbelief in capitalism were more normal than their opposites. Up here in Aragon one was among tens of thousands of people, mainly though not entirely of working-class origin, all living at the same level and mingling on terms of equality. In theory it was perfect equality, and even in practice it was not far from it. There is a sense in which it would be true to say that one was experiencing a foretaste of Socialism, by which I mean that the prevailing mental atmosphere was that of Socialism. Many of the normal motives of civilized life — snobbishness, money-grubbing, fear of the boss, etc. — had simply ceased to exist. The ordinary class-division of society had disappeared to an extent that is almost unthinkable in the money-tainted air of England; there was no one there except the peasants and ourselves, and no one owned anyone else as his master. Of course, such a state of affairs could not last. It was simply a temporary and local phase in an enormous game that is being played over the whole surface of the earth. But it lasted long enough to have its effect upon anyone who experienced it. However much one cursed at the time, one realized afterwards that one had been in contact with something strange and valuable. One had been in a community where hope was more normal than apathy or cynicism, where the word ‘comrade’ stood for comradeship and not, as in most countries, for humbug. One had breathed the air of equality. I am well aware that it is now the fashion to deny that Socialism has anything to do with equality. In every country in the world a huge tribe of party-hacks and sleek little professors are busy ‘proving’ that Socialism means no more than a planned state-capitalism with the grab-motive left intact. But, fortunately, there also exists a vision of Socialism quite different from this.

Fortunately, the number of people I would call ‘friends’ has rapidly dwindled over the last couple of years. Most of them are incurable TV and iPhone addicts – not worth talking to on any serious subject – but for work and humour they’re just fine.

Yeah, some of my “friends” didn’t like it when I saw sense and got rid of mine. Fortunately I really don’t give a toss what normies think of me. My real friends were surprised I’d ever had one in the first place as since their inception in the 90s, I’ve known that main function of a mobile phone is to diminish human freedom.

I think having a young child or a pet in your family to love with abandon and unconditionally keeps us real by the feedback we receive. For a young child or a pet we are truly cherished, we are their world.

Exploring this thought further, we become or remain real by our face-to-face connections in this world – which is exactly what “they” want to take away from us.

Pets ?

Should we really have pets ? These creatures are prisoners, are not part of nature and cause a lot of damage to nature. Rules against taking dogs off the leash in nature reserves are routinely broken and never enforced.

“very good for your mental health too, having a hound you love and cherish”

The great mathematician Rene Descartes went potty because he never owned a pet. Instead of taking a frisking dog walkies happy as Larry, he would lie in bed staring at the ceiling and wondering how to draw graphs on a blank square surface. Ended by by believing that other animals have no souls, and only what was clear and distinct in his mind was real.

“Cogito ergo sum” — Descartes

“We create our own reality” — Kissinger

Anyone know if Kissinger owned a pet?

He did … it’s name was György, but he called him Schwartzie, that was its pet name. It grew up to be a pretty scary mastiff … Woof (I meant WEF)!

The onbly reason to have a “hound” is if you need to hunt to put food on the table. Take your hound off its leash in a public space and face the consequences -including its death.

The first known instance of a government collecting data of its citizens dates back to Babylon in about 3,800 BC. Governments needed to know how many people there were so they could calculate how much food was needed to feed them. A basic and necessary calculation.

You used the daily torygraph as a source of this.

The article above points out a lot regarding identity. Its underpinned by man’s need to apply order. It reminds me of the ever increasing privacy invasion we’ve been experiencing over the past few decades. The article also highlights how things never change by showing examples over time. I would have chosen to include the repeated use of caste systems and slavery in their histories, but. The people behind the WEF today are of the same lineage and use the same symbolism as the Sumerians, Greeks, Romans, Egyptians etc.. and all had slavery/caste systems as a form of oppressive identification.

Some things never change. Consistency like this also exists in recent events:

They’ve been trying repeatedly for at least a year to get people into some kind of mass protest. Its reminiscent of the “Workers of the World, Unite!” communist slogan. At first, they were attempts at getting people to assemble in usual protests. Then, it moved to using strikes as a form of protest. The UK nurses union did it, the US railway union did it, and now it appears that the NY Times unionized workers are doing it:
“The one-day work stoppage will involve more than 1,100 unionized NYTimes staffers” (zerohedge).
Always them leading the protests, and always them deciding what to protest about. Never grass roots.
It is setting up the future rash of banking whistleblowers. Extra protections for banking whistleblowers were baked into US law, so you know they’re coming. Not sure how long it will be, but I’m heavily expecting whistleblowers.

Covid hasn’t changed. Still under EUA after 2 1/2 years. There’s a reason for that. They feel that there is enough risk associated with their vaccines, that they are unwilling to accept liability (huge red flag).

The stage production in the Ukraine is still being presented as real. The sheep also remain unchanged in that they still believe there is a war despite never actually being shown one.
The Ukraine script has been stuck on apocalypse since the beginning. Supermodels have had to pick up air rifles in defense, actor Putin has threatened nukes numerous times, English speaking Ukrainian women were held hostage for 2 years in a basement and appeared on Fox News, little girls wearing tiny BDUs sang tear jerking songs, terrorist attacks were perpetrated on Europe’s pipeline, and Zelensky had to fly all the way to America for a Vogue photoshoot during a time of crisis.
I have to admit, the Ukraine script is more dramatic and action packed than any Hollywood version, and they didn’t even have to film a war scene for it. Hat’s off!

It seems that nearly all of the news headlines are connected by the fact that they’re centrally directed scripts. If you look carefully, through some of the bullshit, you can see a trend where they are directing everything towards “electricity = value“. Car manufacturers are producing nothing but e-shits, cyberpolygon-predicted attacks happening on energy grids, blackouts, rate hikes and AI are all being used to inject the false sense of value in energy because they plan to use energy as the fake backing to their enslavement-providing programmable currency.
Cars can run on water, which is infinitely better for the environment than electricity, but they can’t control it. The irony in it is that the grid attacks, blackouts and rate hikes are all proving that electricity is a bad choice, yet the agenda requires them to convince us that its viable.

Same stuff different day I guess.

Good comment wisenox. Maintaining a constant flow of electricity is their weakest point, making them very vulnerable. Blackouts, solar flares, etc. mean goodbye to all things digital – at least until the power comes back on. Then, data may be lost. Oh horror!

Also, the increasing complexity of the ‘system’ the globos have created (and in which many are trapped) will be its downfall. The Universe is really a simple place, so ‘keep it simple’.

Also, an over-obsession with order leads to disorder. Balance – the universal law.

In this interview with David Martin, he says the “war” in Ukraine is all about the environmental movement, teeing up the kind of world they want. Essentially, while Europe has access to Russian resources, which are vast, then there will be less necessity to adopt their Agenda 21/30 Communitarian WEF 4IR “sustainable” fraud based style of living, the climate change uber con-trick being foisted upon us by these lying deceiving banker corporate scumbags. I think this is a very plausible explanation, although like everything they do the agenda is multi pronged serving many agendas at once. It makes sense in terms of what we actually see them doing, who benefits……the cap fits. Blowing up the Nordstream, for example, makes perfect sense if your goal is to disrupt and destroy the energy ties with Russia and create a huge energy crisis to pave the way to their pre-planned Orwellian energy system. Who did that – was it Russia? Was it the US? No it was the fucking bankers running another scam to get their way in rolling out the climate con, like it always is, getting everyone to pick and blame a side, when it’s just them all along, like it always is. This is how these filthbags do their business. They’ve had their fun blowing up the Middle East, job done, smart cities being built in Iraq and Syria, now it’s time to rape Europe to force the climate agenda through and flatten parts of Ukraine to make it the smart city hub of this part of the world and get that ball rolling and who knows what else they have lined up? Kerching. And they’ve got their banker bitch leaders in every nation, like Goldman Sachs shill traitor Rishi Sunachs, not representing the people but a criminal banking mafia, dutifully performing their roles and reading from the script, like good doggies.

The article also made me think of Brendon O Connell’s work into Microsoft and its deep ties with Israel, where Microsoft core coding is now done, along with a whole range of big departments, according to Brendon’s findings. The Pentagon was going to outsource its Jedi cloud server to Microsoft Israel at one point, which used a company with some very questionable people running it considering we are talking about the Pentagon’s cloud contract, lol. Penetrated, much? He often shows the video of Jeremy Rothe Koshel confronting Bernie Sanders about it. Here’s the link to the shows, which are incredible in terms of their content and all the stuff he has uncovered, along with the people he works with behind the scenes who stay off the radar.

This article fits in with the ealier one on killer robots in that the rulers have always had a fetish for technology as a means of phasing out the human dimension altogether. As the powerful dwindle in numbers whilst increasing in possessed wealth, they become more and more nervous about the multitudes they are increasingly dispossessing. Thus they feel an increasing need for control. To have this, they have had to rely on a lackey class to act as goon squads. But unfortunately these squads have a huge flaw: they may be the most despicable boot-lickers but they are still human. And humans are never fully reliable. Thus the rulers have always dreamed of a fully automated protection. Hence the endless fixation on computerization and robotics. And of course the whole field of transhumanism through which the human part can become submerged in the machine and eventually totally absorbed into it.

I think you give normies too much credit, they crave it. i wanted to blow up mobile masts in the noughties, could see what it was doing to people and they soooo needed their phone, wtf?, but that’s another story ; ) lol

work made us take one, “for our safety”.

as for the ID-ing of everything, even wild life/plants/ecosphere (mental!??), that’s all straight up 21/2030 agenda shtuff. Rosa Koire talks much on that. if real, all evilly sick

You should expand on that other dimensional suggestion Karen, as who would really think they could ID every living thing? what sort of being would demand so much control or believe they could enact it? to do what? clone the favoured and kill the rest..??

but then, if most of we trough feeders die off, that task would be easier?
