World Government Summit + Censorship
A collection of news.
This story is a collection of news—but first, a public service announcement on what looks like censorship.
I am hearing that my newsletters are now being frequently sent straight to spam. Not only am I hearing about it—I am also observing a similar thing with some of my favorite “COVID dissident” writers. It started maybe last month or so when I noticed that the people whom I read regularly stopped sending emails, and I was wondering, what happened to them. But I thought, life, maybe they got busy, etc. And then I checked my spam folder, and I found many of them over there! So it seems like I have the honor of being a part of a very special group. :)
I admit, talking about my emails going to spam in hopes of reaching the people who are not reading my emails because they are going to spam is a bit of a logical flaw. But it’s better than saying nothing! On my end, I am just going to make it a habit to look for gems in my spam (the sellers of v——-a, rejoice).
Now, to the point.
#1. Digital money, an “upgrade” of the global financial system, etc.
As we are being distracted by various dramatic media splashes, the people with significant financial and social powers are just bulldozing forward with their mad plans!
I am very much not a fan. The kind of life they are trying to bring on—the flowery language about “sustainable future” notwithstanding—is soulless, and it comes with casualties.
Some years ago I thought of this analogy:
In the very best scenario, if you have a personality, this life is like being stuck in the most unsuitable, torturous marriage imaginable where your spouse doesn’t understand you, doesn’t care about your soul, tracks your every step using gadgets, and only acts pleasant if you follow instructions precisely and do as you are told (and they use the examples of their pleasant behavior as proof that they are right at all times). You get no whims, no right to say politically incorrect words or think politically incorrect thoughts. There are no “wrong” foods allowed, and no undesirable travel destinations, either. And rules can arbitrarily change—without right to appeal.
To add insult to injury, your spouse from this metaphorical example is not even human. It’s a computer whose algorithms have been programmed by a wealthy king who lives far away.
I talked about this model in my 2015 article about Google (which by the way I did not intend as an instructions manual). The point is the principle where we have to obey a mechanical hand, both physically and emotionally.
I have a lot to say about this principle. Some members of my family suffered greatly in the bolshevik coup, and I feel very emotional about this whole mechanizing principle. The principle is not exclusive to any ism, it’s more about the type of thinking that Steven Newcomb astutely calls the System of Domination. But what’s happening today seems to rhyme with what happened in my birth homeland a hundred years ago. It rhymes psychologically. It’s the same tendency to vilify the nuance and lionize the mediocrity. It’s the same deterioration of standards of human behavior, and intellectual rigor, and commerce, and the quality of work, and the state of public toilets... It’s in the air! And then of course there is this whole “you’ll own nothing and you’ll be happy,” which does not promise anything good!
….which was a long-winded intro for this Schwab talk and a Twitter thread (a statement on transition to a completely different financial system, made during the World Government Summit that took place, with all the familiar faces, at the end of March in Dubai.
(By the way, Derrick Broze wrote an excellent overview of the World Government Summit, very informative.)
#2. Luke Rudkowski has a point. Maybe Mr. Bill Gates does not mean what he says? Could it possibly be?
#3. A reminder about what we don’t have to accept.
#4. Eloquent tweets on a stomach-twisting topic.
#5. An exercise in compliance masked as rebellion.
The semantic twist of this Guardian article is impressive even for the current media environment. When somebody posted it, I thought, what, The Guardian, criticizing the CDC, what happened? Did the world change miraculously? And then I started reading the article, and I was like, wow. That is a whole new level of Orwellian messaging! Wow, wow, wow.
#6. This one is really funny and well worth the two minutes of your time.
