As Tech companies swallow the world with their wonders that suck the minds of those who partake, ushering in a 2nd and permanent state of adolescence for nearly everyone, those few inquiring minds left who haven’t gone down the social media vortex to hell might be wondering if any adults will be left to converse with, fall in love with, go on walks with, go out to dinner with – all the things adults do, on occasions, with other adults.
After all, permanent adolescence probably doesn’t afford one the mindset, or even the mind to be too concerned about working for one’s living, or much of anything else outside their compact world of navel gazing.
But not to worry, as either the government will continue with their adolescence way of thinking that the world is really only the latest video game where they control everything, forgetting, as adolescent’s will, that there is a world outside their little games of death and destruction, and if they continue to push, they’ll inevitably blow up their little world, and ours, and the charade will be over…or, why not induce a type of permanent adolescence into the population via a Universal Basic Income (UBI) for everyone. And who else is pushing this idea…of course, the Tech companies.
Why not throw a grand or so each month at every individual so that the sting of job loss via automation won’t be so keenly felt. Never mind that a grand or so won’t provide one the means to do much of anything all day, except post pictures of whatever cuteness they subscribe to on social media and live on Ramen noodles – that’s not the point. The grand or so is called “hush-money”. Here’s your monthly “stash” of cash – do what you want with it – but shut up and don’t say anything contrary to what we approve.
Tech Moguls Concerned about Massive Job Loss From Automation Recommend Universal Basic Income (UBI) — Some Plan for “Doomsday” – via activistpost.com
…Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg referred to UBI as “cushion” that would “enable everyone to try new ideas that could change the world.”
Spare me. It may be possible for some people to change the world on $1000/month. But it’s not possible for MOST people to change the world on $1000/month.
It’s not even possible for most people to live healthy lives on $1000/month.
The article reports that “The data say it’s a great idea.”
Their data is always going to say they have great ideas until they are forced to admit their data was wrong. Ask Mark Zuckerberg about that..
Tech inventors have also told us kids needed tech in schools to be best prepared for the future. Then they’ve sent their kids to private low-tech schools and limited how much they allow them to use tech in their homes.
… the social networking site exploits human psychological vulnerabilities through a validation feedback loop that gets people to constantly post to get even more likes and comments. It’s exactly the kind of thing that a hacker like myself would come up with, because you’re exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology…The inventors, creators — it’s me, it’s Mark [Zuckerberg], it’s Kevin Systrom on Instagram, it’s all of these people — understood this consciously. And we did it anyway…God only knows what it’s doing to our children’s brains.
Research says it’s not good for anybody’s brains.
Another former Facebook executive, Chamath Palihapitiya, stated he doesn’t use it anymore since he “innately didn’t want to get programmed.”
In regard to his own kids “they’re not allowed to use this shit.” activistpost.com
That last line should tell us all we need to know to stop using social media entirely. But we don’t.
Washington and their accomplices in the media don’t want you thinking outside their box. They want you chained to it.
They want you to continue to believe in their BS, without questions. Launch a hundred or so missiles on a sovereign nation because of unproven chemical attacks – no matter that those missiles had the potential to end lives just as chemical weapons do – not a problem.
Continue to bomb and occupy sovereign nations as a curtain call to the destruction of lives in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and now Syria – it’s all well and good because the absolute soulless demons currently running the show in the West, in the end, could care less how others in sovereign nations die – as long as their plans for regime change are met.
And as the deplorable’s in the West lament staged events, and bomb sovereign nations for Washington’s perceived reality, we have real events (killing and murder) taking place that never find their way Trump’s inner sanctum of insanity, nor photos given to Nikki Haley to stand up in front of the UN and do her grade school show and tell routine, showing how the West ends the lives of others:
A US Ally is Literally Beheading People Over Nonviolent Drug Charges – via antimedia.com
Saudi Arabia, the United States’ main ally in the Middle East, has executed 48 people so far this year, half of them over nonviolent drug charges, Human Rights Watch reported this week.
As far back as 2004, CBS reported that “[t]he Saudi government beheaded 52 men and one woman last year for crimes including murder, homosexuality, armed robbery and drug trafficking,” adding that the Kingdom argues the practice is acceptable under Islamic law, which governs the country. At the same time, they condemned beheadings by militant groups. CBS noted that while Islam allows for the death penalty “few mainstream Muslim scholars and observers believe beheadings are sanctioned by Sharia, or Islamic law.”
Nevertheless, the Saudi government has continued the practice, beheading 157 people in 2015, the highest since 1995, when 192 were executed. Nonviolent drug offenders were among those killed that year, as well.
A grand a month to keep one’s mouth shut is easy stuff for American’s to swallow. After all, they’re currently swallowing the choicest of BS from their government, with not a glance away from the technological wonders sucking the life out of their souls…and without a whimper of protest.
