As the internet clampdown begins, people are finally beginning to wake up to the need to find alternative communication platforms. But if the masses are just herded from one centralized platform to another, has anything really changed at all?
Join James Corbett for the latest important edition of #SolutionsWatch where he examines some of the many decentralized communication networks, platforms and protocols that are being developed to address the root of the censorship problem.
Sources, shownotes and links – as well as audio versions and download options – can be found here. Previous episodes of #SolutionsWatch can be found here and here.

I can barely watch a Corbett Report or Solutions Watch. Some of the “information” is well presented, but I always feel like I’m eavesdropping on a 4th grade lecture…
I’ve been promoting for a long while now updating the bbs / fido system. We did good work with it back in the day.
I am now a Bastyon user: Offensively funny. No. Not me. What I found in the little time I spent perusing it.
I found something far better than decentralized communication. That would be to stop thinking you must communicate with everybody everywhere. It works wonders.
Quite. Off fakebook, whatsapp and messenger. Never used any of the others, aside telegram, which I use judiciously!
o/t but its too good:
A great speech for sure, this deserves lots of praise, and the rats who left tell you all you need to know about the scum running the UK. We need to get rid of them, then we need to start sentencing them, lawfully.
British MP Andrew Bridgen Leads An Adjournment Debate On The Efficacy Of The mRNA Covid-19 Booster (bitchute.com)
Shilling the lab leak to the dummies.
Theatre at Parliament for the believers.
If you think an MP is going to stand up and start claiming there is no virus, or virology is a scam, you are kidding yourself. This is about building momentum and Bridgen should be praised for this. But you keep demoralising people.
Damn straight. The fools keep throwing bombs at the wrong people…
Meanwhile, UBS acquires Credit Suisse in historic rescue deal (Business Insider)
“In five years a number of banks will not be around because of blockchain technology.” ~ Joseph DiPaolo, CEO, Signature Bank, 2018
“Acting as a trusted third party is precisely what a central bank does. It performs that role only for one particular asset, central bank money (i.e. reserve deposits held largely by commercial banks at the central
bank). But the function goes right to the heart of what central banks do and how they came about. And if a private-sector digital currency uses the technology to substitute for a third-party clearer, the central bank counterpart would do the opposite. The aim would be to widen access to the central bank’s balance sheet,
beyond commercial banks. There’s no rigid correspondence here: in principle, one could introduce the technology and preserve the current arrangements, under which it is commercial banks that hold central bank deposits; it’s also possible to increase the number of counterparties without it. But the distributed ledger would probably make it easier to do so. That might mean adding only a narrow set of counterparties – perhaps a wide range of non-bank financial companies, say. It might mean something more dramatic: in the limiting case, everyone – including individuals – would be able to hold such balances. So although they might share the same technology, and the same name, the private and central-bank versions of a digital currency are actually rather different. The one would expand what the other seeks to replace. As far as its economic effects are concerned, my guess is that much would depend on how exactly a central bank digital currency (CBDC) is designed – and in particular the extent to which it competes with the main
form of money in the economy, commercial bank deposits. As individuals, we already have the ability to hold claims on the central bank, in the form of physical cash. If all a CBDC did was to substitute for cash – if it bore no interest and came without any of the extra services we get with bank accounts(1) – people would probably still want to keep most of their money in commercial banks.”
~ Ben Broadbent, Deputy Governor for Monetary Policy, Bank of England, March 2016
I disagree what most people I know want is, at nearly any cost, to be free of the extra services that result in spied on control and bank instituted marketing ploys..
Make a transaction and three days letter comes in the mail a request for you to join this or that, or buy this or that..
I believe Broadbent is referring to the services deposits have as opposed to idle cash in pocket, most important being interest bearing.
CBDC would offer greater interest rates than commercial banks which probably should result in a run of currency therefrom to central banks. AFAIK, up to 10,000 you get a high positive interest, and a small negative rate on any excess of 10,000.
Or the populace could get off their dead asses and file criminal racketeering charges against ALL the major banking conglomerates and their syndicated “assigns”. Corporate Charters need to be Revoked, and the principal executive staff sent to prison for life.
Currency’s should be Nationalized with Statehood contained sovereign currencies – based on local physical assets, not international usury Bonds.
Financial allocations are currently based on Bond issues and hypothecated contracts, with no real physical assets attached to the alleged valuations. It’s a ponzi scheme, and the public hasn’t a clue as to the solutions I’ve already noted above.
I viewed this Solutions Watch on Corbett’s site. I really enjoyed it. I am totally tech UNsavvy but I loved listening to the ideas people are coming up with and pursuing.
I actually found it hopeful. A feeling which is hard to come by these days.
Off topic but since Van Morrison stopped doing vax and lockdown protest songs and turned back to skiffle, he’s suddenly top of the music headlines again and everybody loves him. Expect his protest albums to be quietly binned.
The mobile phone, the Internet, e-mail, all the crap are highly useful devices, systems. Being a lifelong freelancer, all these gizmos provide me with nearly unlimited freedom. I can work in any place on the planet.
Likewise, the Internet provides a marvelous opportunity for connecting with people all over the globe, which is infinitely useful too, considering that for people like me who are not exactly conventional it’s not exactly easy to find kindred spirits around wherever I happen to be physically.
More generally, the Internet has the potential to be the modern Gutenberg press in the sense of depriving the mass media of their monopoly to distribute information (read: brainwash the masses), just like printed books served this purpose by sidelining the fucking scheming church in the past.
Can it be expected that those who are losing their grip over the dissemination of information will fight back? Fuck yes. Enter the censorship, the persecution of people who allegedly commit a crime by voicing online an opinion which the fuckers designate as criminal, the massive attempt to harness the virtual world and impose thereon the same constraints they m-effers impose on the real world.
Well, people simply have to act the same as they do in their real-world lives. Fly under the radar, dodge, invent ways to bypass the rules, toss the wrench in the system in some clever way, so on, so forth. Invent a code or a new language if need be so that they can’t get you for what you say. Anything. Be creative. Adjust.
Incidentally, am I the only one on whose nerves is getting James “Waterfall of Verbiage” Corbett’s allusions to his status as a prophet? This “you wanna know the Truth, buy my book” shit is getting kinda old.
James is a tad loquacious and prone to overzealousness, but his heart is in the right place.
Give him the benefit of your cynical doubts Kurt. We need more like him to keep the home fires burning.
Well he’s selling his shit like everybody else. Obviously he has to serve the occasional useful thing here and there with tons and tons of garnishment to justify the 50 bucks for the book and whatever else he charges people for his wisdoms.
I don’t blame the guy. Everybody does that.
I don’t know if we need more talking heads like him. I think everybody needs especially oneself to be confident, self-reliant individual.
What “we” don’t need is another self-appointed prophet to be looking up to. “We” gotta get rid of this idea of hierarchy, including intellectual hierarchy.
It fucking irks me to see how everybody is stuck in Corbett’s asshole or the asshole of some other celebrity “dissenter” and goes apeshit every time somebody voices criticism about some stupidity that comes out of them.
Unfortunately his loquacious head is far, far, far, outnumbered by HEADS TALKING NON STOP SHINY SHIT.
Power to his Lingua.
Though I still watch Mr. Corbett occasionally, I get the impression he’s becoming passe. This is especially the case ever since he exchanged his Corbett Report for Solutions Watch.
The only “solutions” are along the lines of what you’ve been recommending. Corbett’s “solutions” are severely limited to solidly middle class people with lots of spare money.
The guy’s got no solutions. None of these hallucinatory ideas are practicable in the real world.
Some of his advice is interesting, he’s made a few pertinent points. But looking up to him as a prophet, spiritual leader, or the owner of Truth is ridiculous.
The guy is leading a pretty conventional life himself, running business that consists of creating an aura of being the Source of Truth.
I’m not necessarily dissing James, I’m simply addressing the idolatry toward him that seems to exist and be growing among people who consider themselves “independent”.
Who is doing that? The guy is supposed to be a journalist and researcher.
All the people who go apeshit when one voices the slightest criticism of this guy, not to mention how ol’ James incessantly puts himself on a pedestal.
You kinda look like one of them too, man
You will be using Nostr almost every day 5 years from now. I am certain of that. It is basically email, in every way, but for social media posts. None of those other ones will survive. Nostr is so simple its hard to believe it wasn’t invented WITH email.
Kurt, Corbett offers all his reports for free. You do not have to buy his book or DVDs to listen to his reports.
Corbett is similar to a Freelancer – like you said you have been ‘most of your life’. So you should be able to relate (gotta pay the bills). He does his research, writes articles, does podcasts and the occasional book.
He asks for donations for his work (like all independent journalists these days online). No different than a freelance journalist doing assignments for publications and getting paid for it.
Man, if you don’t like him, don’t watch or read his stuff. And stop wasting your time bitching about him ’cause few really could give a shit about your opinion.
Find something better to do with your time than trying to drag down someone who works hard and tries to get information out that people may not normally come across.
You’re a case in point of what I was referring to. You’re stuck far up Corbett’s asshole, totally unable to digest the most minute criticism.
In other word, my remark addressed precisely the kind of idolatry, cult of personality you practice.
BTW, if Velvet Revolution is supposed to refer to the event of 1989, be advised that revolution was it not. It was a “velvet” handover of assets in exchange for some crumbs swept from the table. A new lease on life for the Western Empire. A peaceful version of what the Empire is now attempting to do a few thousand k’s eastward using violent means.
The mobile phone is the spy in your pocket. Having succumbed to its many and various attractions to the point of obsession, many see it as a life-line – irreplaceable – the only way to communicate with friends, order goods, pick a meal, and banks require one in preference to a land-line. Not hard to see where this is going. It’s a control mechanism.
Even my old Nokia 3510i is my banks preferred contact line with me. It’s over 20yrs old.
Start thinking Faraday cages. Or learn to live without one. We used to . . .
No. Use the phone judiciously.
Any invention, any gizmo, anything can and will be used against use. Or they’ll try.
The mobile phone is a HIGHLY USEFUL device.
the useful device is the computers that are embedded in your phones and its usefulness is to spy on you.
You could very simply turn your phone on only when you need to make a call and there would be just about no spying, apart from your location and possibly eavesdropping on your conversation, but that’s illegal unless approved by court.
If you use data connection and install all sorts of applications on your phone, you only have yourself to blame for being spied on.
Use the thing judiciously and it will give you great service and the spying will be minimal. Or go back to fucking homing pigeons, see how you like that.
My advice for over 20 years. “Place cell phone on hard surface. Strike repeatedly with large blunt instrument. Ship pieces back to manufacturer for proper disposal.”
There is no proper use for cellular communications. The broadcast radiations are killing and maiming every living thing on the planet. You don’t know shit from Shinola. > Shinola – Wikipedia
There are apparently no Uber taxi’s in Bowral in the Southern highlands.
I’m absolutely convinced there’s far more to a mobile phone than simply a mini-spy. I sincerely believe it to be a source of hypnotic control of people.
I’ve always done as Kurt suggests: I reserve it ONLY for emergencies. I never turn it on otherwise.
Sure it is. All the shit produced by gadgets ranging from books, radio, TV, and all the gizmos that came to date are “hypnotic”. Some more explicitly than others. They’ve figured ways to addict people to the inherent human weaknesses, and exploit them to the very fullest.
But what do you do, eh? You gotta adjust. Going back to the cave is an option too, but not if you live in or even on the fringes of society.
dumbones are potential IED’s which i suspect could be detonated with the rite input. max igan hit one with a lump hammer on concrete and it exploded…..i hate them but use them, i rarely carry a phone when out, they are an extreme invasion of your privacy and shit can wait til i get home
If you have a mobile phone you will not rely on your telepathic abilities and you will not develop them.
On the 23rd of April all the U.K folks will have to answer it.
Spy in your pocket yes it is.
some fascinating reading that begins to explain the “concensus trance” we are witnessing among the masses still blinded by lies
furthermore it explains that the “god” yahweh is as far from the benevolent creator as one could ever be
if you seek to understand the vile evil that permeates all societies, all governments, all religions and is working towards your eternal enslavement, who they are, who they serve, then this is a concise place to start, because without such knowledge how can you truly resist what is coming?
Interesting comment – I’d upvote you but I refuse to use the voting system. I, too, think the God of Judaism and Christianity is anything but benevolent.
A god by its very nature cannot be anything other than evil. The ancients (before the birth of monotheism) understood that gods were essentially malevolent. In that regard, monotheism and this childish notion of a benevolent creator is simply an atavistic devolution of the human race.
I agree with your assessment of monotheism but this absurd generalisation is not really well researched.
I only scanned the chapter titles, and would most likely agree with the basic premise of religious take-over and the historical influence of Builder/masons. Most Judaeo/Christian’s are told that Joseph (alleged father of the Christ) was a carpenter. Erm… Trees? Wood? in the middle eastern desert? Ummm…
The neglected truth is there were Masons in the Middle East, and they made a lot of money. Masons built structures out of? You guessed it, masonry. Like sand and rocks FROM THE FUCKING DESERT. Joseph was a mason, not a carpenter. Hello?
US MSM is made up of 6 corporations, all of them owned by Zionist oligarchs.
The situation in other major “democracies” is similar.
The takeaway from this article is that Oliver Dowden and phones are a threat to our freedom and tools of the terrorists running our governments.
‘Siren-like’ public emergency alert will sound on all UK phones next month (msn.com)
God only put you on this Earth to take part in military training exercises, run by corporate criminal terrorist filth. Your life is a drill to these fucking scumbags. I wonder if a miraculous major incident will take place in the same minute as the drill.
You must and will be microwaved by weaponised frequencies at all times, everywhere you go, no matter what you are doing, in dystopian Soviet Britain Naziland, just to stay safe. Expect to see SBN stickers on lots of cars soon.
End of pay and display! Parking machines to be scrapped as public told to use apps | UK | News | Express.co.uk
According to numerologists, the most likely date is this Thursday, MARCH 23rd, not April
Here is the sound that the siren will play on your phone.
And it won’t stop until you join everyone else
and acknowledge it.
The acknowledgement will plant a bug on your phone.
You have no choice. Even if you put your phone to sleep
during the duration of the public alert
and long after it
the siren noise will be there waiting for you to turn on your
phone and join everyone else
and acknowledge it.
Cut and paste from above:
My iPhone has “Emergency Alerts” under “Notifications”. I already have this function turned off.
Does anyone know if there are any other settings that need changing?
They have already tested this in Germany.
No, you don’t really have to confirm it; instead, you can (still) turn off these notifications in the settings. So I was grateful for the trial.
If they ever find a way to send it despite turning it off, I’ll have a hammer.

Just look through everything, with android they have distributed the emergency settings, you have to switch off in several places.
With every update you have to check again because the due finctions are reactivated against the will of the slave.
It’s quite possible that one of the future updates will make it impossible to switch off. Then you should destroy the device and throw it away.
Let’s not forget that
Key to their prison for you = 5G boxes within reach of wherever you are
The new forms of surveillance and control require the high bandwidth of 5G.
So ‘meditate’ on that when you see the ‘boxes’ of 5G antennas that are oh so very near.
The model I use is not 5G compatible.
I halfway suspect compatibility is merely a marketing ploy to get people to buy the latest gadget. If I’m right, then ANY phone ANYWHERE would be susceptible to 5G spying – as well as just about any other device in a person’s home or car.
If enough people wake up to the dangers of 5G (which they won’t), then you would start to see adds emphasizing non-compatibility with 5G.
ID is an American requirement roughly ’27. In Europe they are seen as domestic inconviences that slow down daily activities. Some empathy wouldn’t go amiss as we continually adjust, as we have as Allies across the whole of the Continent over the decades.
Go through the permissions for each app and turn off those you think are not necessary. If you then get a warning that the app may not work, consider whether you can take the risk.
or put another way:
“When uk troops are placed on ukraine soil, openly as opposed to covertly and given the repeated warnings both in private and public that the uk will be “sunk”.
At that point we the uk government wish to provide adequate warning to allow at least a few grunts to make it to higher ground to assist the “elite” and “others” in re-building what remains of our radioactive, septic little island”
churchill would be so proud….
A mobile phone – or laptop – has loopholes through which to locate, track or eavsedrop on the user, in real time or later. Even when supposedly switched off, it constantly transmits data, at least to commercial trackers. -Patrick Jackson 2019
You can buy little faraday phone wallets/pouches lined with materials that block transmission, if you’re on the run!
If they are really doing that it could not be real time eavesdropping using the phone’s mic as this would drain the battery and nerds would intercept it anyway, and make a lot of noise.
Conceivably the eavesdropping function is off normally and can be be turned on and off remotely as needed if you’re a real target… but all this is not relevant because you can anonymously buy used phones and get your hands on a SIM card in many places.
What is relevant is the FEAR PORN and the paranoia.
