“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness…”
The above statement a partial of the Declaration of Independence; these truths that we hold to be self evident will in, the not so distant future become an item of censoring. It incites the individual to his self evident individuality. His mind separate and created by God and that any institution that interrupts that is to be abolished.
But is speaks of men and is biased towards the other genders, and flavor of humanity? It is a document of dissent and promotes domestic terrorism?
It will be necessary to censor it completely and anyway its an artifact of an old world, an old normal. We are in a new normal now. A Great Reset.
Censorship, exclusion from consciousness; “the institution” and the system of censoring.
It has happened so many times in your life, and so many, many times throughout human history. Are you not constantly being corrected?
Go back far enough and someone wrote something on a cave wall, someone else, did not like that and erased or destroyed it…or, a warming climate raise the waters and we lived close to the sea and was submerged in those caves with all that writing and knowledge in the visual lexicon of its time, gone from our knowledge. Beneath the waves now. Hopefully to be discovered.
Sometimes destroyed on purpose, sometimes the fault of an unknown, an act of god or the environment. And mankind lost precious information that could have moved him forward and aided him in a greater understanding of who and what he is…brought greater peace and understanding of other cultures.
Wars destroyed empires and libraries with them, it wasn’t until the modern, the 19th century that The Library of Ashurbanipal in the city of Nineveh was unearthed and excavated, revealing some startling things about our past.
Some 2600 to 2700 years ago.
The epic of Gilgamesh; the laws and thinking of a people; its politics and science and philosophy in some 30,000 clay tablets, unfortunately, one can presume in innumerable, unknown numbers of the animal hide and papyrus and other documents does not remain as well. Stele broken and walls that told a story of a civilization torn down and pushed aside and lost. The city was sacked and burned and never again was a center of politics and administration. A shame really, for it was the largest city in the world at that time.
The temple at Goblecki Tepi is re-discovered after its burial some 11,500 years ago. An astonishing amount of time, which threatens to rewrite history as we know it. Whither that was an intentional burial for its protection or an act of censorship is unknown still.
Nalanda University and the loss of countless Buddhist texts, burned and destroyed by the force of the Tukic Muslim in 1193. Signifying the decline of a growing Buddhism. As Islam purges all it does not understand.
The library at Constantinople burned during the fourth Christian crusade; the too many to count monastic libraries by invaders and Viking looking for plunder; those libraries and monasteries burned by Henry the VIII of England after the desolution of monasteries and the creation of the Church of England.
The many many Mayan codices on bark paper destroyed or those of more obvious value destroyed and melted down for their gold into ingots by the conquistador for Spain and his greed.
During the second world war from 1937-1945 well over 2 million books destroyed as the Japanese burned Chinese libraries, age old and choke full of ancient knowledge and information.
The library of Congress burned by the British, and only through the good graces of Thomas Jefferson’s personal library could it be restored to a point.
The Ahmed Baba Institute of Higher Learning and Islamic Research in 2013 gave up some 400,000 of the 700,000 Timbuktu Manuscripts to flame ash and smoke by an arsonist. On Mali history — too many hand written texts from the 14th to the 16th century. Poetry, astronomy. literature philosophy and Islamic law.
Much information and books and manuscripts lost by the modern wars WWI and WWII as carpet bombing annihilated vast depositories of literature and art and science; mathematics and philosophy and the yet to be discovered now. The Nazi public book burnings — and all public book burning — and attempted irradiation of everything Jewish in the second world war. Personal libraries passed on and finally burned by the Nazi.
I have only scratched the surface here, I could name a thousand other as empires rise and fall! And each unique and individual in every single book or manuscript.
The recent fracas in Ukraine has only brought this forward for me, as a polarized world, destroys and changes information and rewrites history and agreement to suit it needs. The deep fakes and the mis/disinformation specialists spin their lies. The propaganda that flows like a river.
The internet and Big tech companies intervene and cancel and censor any and everyone he dislikes, and rewrite incessantly anything that contradicts what they kowtow too; the controllers and Big tech owners who wish to own the whole planet and all information, all knowledge. Data is the new oil and must be coveted and secreted away and never shown but to the privileged eye. And most it destroyed as it talks about their decades if not a century of sin.
The modern destruction of libraries all over the world, and, attendance has dwindled in modern times.
No one reads anymore, they listen to audible and are attentive. And listening and reading are two distinct and different forms of consciousness. One being ever more critical it the minds and the reader defining.
One must place a time consumed in the actually reading of a thing e.g. a two minute, or three minutes is all that can be afforded.
Illiteracy climbs as a populous becomes more dependent on video driven communications.
What we are going through today in this world is a war about and because of information. Information controlled or denied, censored or rewritten…even destroyed.
“When you use Google, do you get more than one answer? Of course you do. Well, that’s a bug. We have more bugs per second in the world. We should be able to give you the right answer just once. We should know what you meant. You should look for information. We should get it exactly right and we should give it to you in your language and we should never be wrong. That’s our challenge.” —Eric Schmidt. Google
“…and we should never be wrong.”. Yes I see. And that is dangerous thinking by one so powerful and in a position that could change world history and its politics. Google holds a percentage of the vote in its hands to sway either way it chooses. A power a tech institution should never have.
Schmidt said “Technology will move faster than governments, so don’t legislate before you understand the consequences…” and he was right, and it is, as politicians move to get ahead of the latest without having time to think or roll an idea around in their own heads. Not that, that would matter in a lot situations as cabinets have been penetrated and what it breeds is a superficial kind of [individual]; a woke globalist technocrat whose acting the part for a technocracy gone mad. A puppet to be played in the Unity politics and collective progressive liberalism that has become such a cancer to individual and world politics and nations.
It was seen in the protests in Canada and it seen in the situation in Ukraine. Google among others very much make the political right in these affairs. Censoring, creating Institutes of fact-checking and truthing. They ‘can never be wrong‘ so they must write, what is right for them and censor and hide what they feel is wrong, or should I say exposes they ill gotten gain.
Google is ranked on advertisers buying those positions in your searches using their search engine, and the ones who have that kind of money run the world and propagandist organizations like the WEF for one. Google has now taken its place as the ministry of truth in the new normal world, with its high priests who speak on high because “we should never be wrong“.
Schmidt said of privacy, “If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.”. As if one is guilty for wanting to have a privacy of life. As if that is by its nature a criminal act. And those ideas that individuals have are wrong and speak to the ideas of the Orwellian thoughtcrime. The mind thinking without guidance is a crime?
It is said that the shelf life of a piece of information on the internet is about 100 days. Three month! that is not very long when books have been passed hand to hand down for some centuries. But how long will that last as history and the knowledge of the world is rewritten and epistemology evolves to something unrecognizable. Burning, constant burning.
Eventually no one will read as they are being taught to listen as apps like audible take hold and one is instructed in listening rather questioning and using a critical mind. Language is debased and bastardized through texting and words that are changed in meaning to something completely different than the original.
Biased algorithms take hold of the internet and search the web to rewrite and censor anything that undoes the edict of the high priests of information and Google, among other search engines and data gatherers, to endeavor to the “we should never be wrong”. What a despicable and arrogant phrase, self righteous and authoritarian.
Advancing Digital Agency (ADA): The Power of Data Intermediaries
The WEF agency to modify, modulate, sift through information and gain a hold on thinking and the brain. And you are just that, a brain? And nothing else.
“And we look to the future, to the artificially intelligent agent that allows for autonomous third-party decision-making on our behalf, with its associated promises and perils”
ADA as a means to travels the byways of the internet, the internet bubble you live in becomes greater than it is as, and expands and you are molded from the outside by autonomous third party decision according to their beliefs of your needs. Socially engineered to suit that collective purpose and their bottom line.
This Brave New World/1984 arriving at a tremendous speed will undo everything you thought you knew. You will be corrected and guided and programmed — because you are just chemicals in reaction, to behave and not resist, for its is futile and they know what is best for you?
Each one allotted his energy quota and those according to their need. The diversity and inclusion and equity as instated by the ones who control you and can cancel you at a moment’s notice; and you will own nothing and live in a Metaverse of their construction and tow the status quo and never question. Be part of a global consensus, which will be run by technocrats who are better than politicians. Engineers, scientists and experts who will run the world like a large machine.
There will be no choice!
“In some cases, individuals may opt out of interacting with technologies that would be of huge benefit to their lives. But what if it were possible to outsource these decision points to a trusted agent acting on an individual’s or even a group’s behalf?”
Data privacy, is lost and everything is known about you from cradle to grave, your life managed by those who act on your behalf, from your shoe size to how much you ‘should’ eat. Got to watch that waste line!
Nosy little algorithms tattling about what you do, those late night visits to the fridge to sneak another slice of the wonderful as your fridge become part of the IoT’s.
But till that time these pesky little bastards will tied you up in complex data; passwords and hints, questions and code numbers to be remembered and protocols as the engine of control finds ways to frustrate and cause for you to beg for its help in navigating what once was so easy. Everything stored in a cloud.
The internet as a special place that you must be invited to and privileged to be a part of, registered for and known from fingerprints to DNA, and if cast out you are alone, cold, naked and hungry. Friendless and of no purpose or use, with nothing.
They blame it on criminality and those who would steal your identity — as if it is worth anything — who write fake news, wrongful dissension; on hackers and subversives and domestic terrorists that want to lie to you and want your stuff.
But these are real lies they tell you, this organization the WEF speaks, and the others, the UN, NATO, your government and health and welfare agencies, the CDC and WHO. These institutions are a cancer of thought and free thinking in the world, a technological cancer that will have you stupid and alone and crazy. Isolated in your little bubble, loosing even the ability to translate your thoughts, always guilty of having them, always guilty of pandering to them, like some pimp. But they are your thoughts and you have a right to them, and the journey is yours to navigate and find that singular point that takes you back to god.
The library is burning , right now and we must safe this information, and save this way of reading, translating and deciphering, communicating thought and knowledge, and pass it on from here to the future, so they might know what freedom is, freedom must be known, freedom must be felt and must be the default…freedom to speak, freedom to live and thrive, freedom to learn what ever you wish, that is your birth right.
