As I’m typing this, we’re on the receiving finish of a top-down warfare on all the things that’s pure, be it pure free expression, pure immunity, or pure skill at massive.
Totally different features of as we speak’s weird actuality are linked like items of a puzzle. The fashionable political correctness, for instance, attracts from the identical logical root as vaccinating individuals with pure immunity.
How so? Nicely, political correctness exists to make sure that conversational areas are protected areas — and the necessity to make them protected is predicated on the premise that human beings aren’t able to navigating unregulated conversational areas with out being harmed. Those that are able to doing so ought to act as if they don’t seem to be.
The idea right here is that the pure skill to take care of unregulated conversations doesn’t exist, is just not essential to develop, and mentioning the necessity for it’s merciless. Equally, forcing the well-known medical product on these with pure immunity is predicated on the premise that synthetic immunity is superior to pure immunity.
Moreover, the sturdy push for the product, mixed with an assault on anybody who even squeaks about comparable advantages of something pure — be it a wholesome life model or precise pure immunity — presumes that synthetic instruments and mechanisms ought to be used to switch the pure skill of the physique to face as much as pathogens.
And equally, each an expectation of pure immunity in anybody and a refusal to supersede or substitute one’s pure immunity with a man-made one are framed as merciless. I posit that in logical and industrial phrases, this warfare on the pure world, pure immunity — and pure skill at massive — could be defined with readability when it comes to what is called the “blue ocean technique,” with an infusion of transhumanist ideology of human physique as a [product] platform.
The blue ocean strategy is a enterprise technique that proposes making a model new market out of skinny air and dominating it (a blue ocean) — versus attempting to compete in an current market (an ocean purple with blood).
Right here’s the way it applies to pure immunity. A wholesome individual with a pure immunity may be a cheerful individual — however to a 2021 biotech entrepreneur, who views the human physique as a market to dominate, he’s a sheer insult. From the standpoint of that entrepreneur, changing the default pure immunity of the previous hundreds of thousands years with a totally synthetic device that requires a “subscription” all through one’s complete lifetime (see “variants” and “boosters”) is fascinating.
Changing the default pure immunity with a man-made device is a really profitable case of making a model new market (“synthetic immunity market”) out of air. A life-long subscription to synthetic immunity, with an ever-expanding vary of vital “upgrades,” is much more worthwhile than some rookie conventional store promoting nutritional vitamins. Even higher, if synthetic immunity destroys the pure immunity, buyer loyalty is assured. See how elegant?
Considerably equally, the notion that individuals can say what they suppose, and everybody formally survives unscarred, doesn’t assist promote censorship or behavioral modification as a way of “defending others.”
If, however, individuals are formally deemed as missing the flexibility to speak over variations or to course of info and make cheap sense of it — or if individuals’s pure skill to speak with others in a wholesome manner is artificially impaired by social distancing, face wearables, and political correctness — a lot of new wants are generated proper then and there.
Amongst different issues, it opens new market alternatives for mass scale “psychological well being administration methods” and the behavioral modification instruments, together with behavioral modification software program, generally known as “digital vaccines.” Now, let’s take a look at the opposite facet of it. Let’s take a look at the economic system at massive from the psychological perspective of a particularly rich individual, trillionaire-level rich.
A query: Who’re we, common residents, to the individuals with near-unlimited monetary and political energy? Who’re we to those that can make investments into their imaginative and prescient virtually infinitely, and thus form our society and notion?
It looks like to the individuals with probably the most monetary and political sources, we’re 4 issues: One, we’re clay from which they prefer to mildew their play actuality, creating worlds and wars, experimenting, and testing out hypotheses. Two, we’re the labor, producers of products and companies.
Three, we’re the customers, shopping for stuff that their manufacturing amenities have produced and contributing to the appearance of a functioning market, regardless that they make most of their cash on extraction and hypothesis. And 4, we’re a pure useful resource, like land or water.
Traditionally, in the course of the instances of feudalism, we have been largely one and two. Then, when the commercial revolution occurred, quantity three was added to the checklist because of the sudden drop in manufacturing prices and a rise within the quantity of stuff that could possibly be made on the conveyor.
And now, we’re approaching the phrase the place quantity 4 turns into very fascinating to probably the most highly effective individuals of our planet. Robotics is mighty, fewer individuals are wanted to make issues — and what to do with all of the ineffective eaters?
Nicely, see, in a man-made world, all the things is feasible, and ineffective eaters aren’t so ineffective in a totally managed atmosphere, so long as they’re considered as information bundles, also referred to as digital twins. So long as they’ve “wants” (as outlined by the individuals looking for to revenue), the “enchancment” of their situation could be plugged into varied influence funding fashions, after which our ineffective eaters they change into very helpful!
Right here is how this financial system works: Let’s say, the “authorities” — in quotes, as a result of within the 4IR mannequin, the federal government could possibly be theoretically a software program program — generates foreign money as wanted.
Our ineffective eaters, after all, get common fundamental earnings on the situation of doing what they’re advised. However their Most worthy asset to the economic system is their “wants.” I don’t imply their precise human wants — however “wants,” as outlined by some form of World Financial Discussion board-like set of formal parameters.
Maybe they’re vulnerable to getting contaminated with a virus and wish v-s? Or possibly their psychological well being doesn’t meet the numerically outlined markers? Or else they may probably be in want of behavioral modification, akin to getting handled for meat habit, as a result of local weather change? So many markets! So many alternatives! And who then steps in to enhance their situation?
Essentially the most nepotistic firms, after all, by public-public partnerships. So first, the “authorities,” working with NGOs, funded by the very firms looking for to revenue, declares an essential public “want.”
Essentially the most nepotistic firms then obtain piles of foreign money from the “authorities” to resolve these “wants,” from growing housing initiatives to growing patented synthetic meals to creating gene therapies and behavioral modification applications. These issues are then dumped onto the ineffective eaters, no matter what they consider it.
And so the ineffective eaters get stuff “totally free” however they can’t select, and their our bodies are part-owned by firms. Which, if it actually goes this fashion, places us again into the Soviet Union with a dystopian twist (and that has nothing to do with isms).
And since human beings aren’t designed to dwell like mechanical troopers or remote-controlled meatbags, and this may result in a really bleak society if we let it occur, we higher get up to the anatomy of how the New Regular actually works, and shortly. The tip.
