Distance Yourself From Evil, Not People

The Boycott Big Tech Movement Begins Here

First rule: Question everything, and think for yourself.

Second rule: Don’t support your slavers. (Gandhi, MLK and Thoreau would understand. It’s time for mass civil disobedience.)

Nothing is free. If you want to say no to Big Brother, you have to pay for better tech that itself says no to Big Brother. That means boycotting Big Tech. It’s a transition we need to make. Start by ditching Google. Then Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, Android….

Marco Polo is worth looking into, as well. (A video calling service) They refuse to use annoying ads, and more importantly, they refuse to sell client data or to be part of the new global surveillance state. 

Also of note: There is a new tech company making sleek black phones, tablets and laptops, which are not only built to last three times longer, but are built from the kernel up to be deeply resistant to the new global surveillance apparatus. Sorry the name escapes me at the moment. See the excellent podcast, Geopolitics & Empire, and you’ll find it; along with an extremely important interview with Robert Epstein on why boycotting Big Tech is imperative (my extrapolation).

See also, My Seven Simple Steps, by Robert Epstein, for further resistance to Big Brother.

The MAGATS – Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Apple, Twitter, and the “social media” giant Farcebook – are all deeply embedded and eager partners with the new global corporate police state. We need to begin an exodus away from them, an intelligent social distancing campaign that brings people together, face to face, and in groups for rallies and protests, meetings, conferences and blockades, under freedom of travel, speech and assembly, and distance ourselves from the Big Tech tools of the corporate police state. Now that would be…pardon me, will be…intelligent social distancing. Distance yourself from evil – not from people.

“Social distancing” doesn’t work. The science indicates 27 feet is needed. Six feet is useless – unless you want to sow panic and fear, and divide and conquer the people, which of course is the elite-driven objective, which the lemmings blindly obey.

Masks don’t work, as even the WHO admitted. They do however cut off oxygen to the body and brain, lowering immune resistance as well as functional intelligence – which partly explains the mass insanity and loss of ability to think critically or to use basic common sense reasoning.

Mass quarantine, which is mass house arrest, doesn’t work, as Sweden and Taiwan have proved. In fact, it is causing alienation and economic devastation to soar, which will, if continued, result in surging poverty, sickness and death.

Moreover, this is not the Plague. The global death toll from covid, a new form of the cold and flu family, is under 300,000, while annual death tolls from the flu are 300,000-700,000.

Basic math, anyone?

Think for yourself.

Check the facts. Question everything. You are being lied to. Mass hysteria has taken over.

The covid crisis needs to be understood for what it is: a Davos billionaire oligarch-driven agenda of: 1. Mass distraction, 2. Divide and conquer, 3. Economic warfare, that is, class warfare, of the 1% vs the 99%, and 4. A pretext for a power grab, and the final stage of the 50 year process of neoliberalism, which has been the corporate take-over of society on a global scale, and the merger of business and the state, which as Mussolini said, is the proper definition of fascism.

Where is the left? I hope you are starting to get this right, or will soon. This is a corporate fascist coup.

Of course, to frame the issues in this way will put the 60-80% of people who have become complete lemmings, into total panic, hyperbolic mouth-foaming fervour, and vitriolic hysteria; but it simply must be done.

I’ve explained these issues countless times. Read my blog essays if anything here is surprising or alarming. It certainly should not be. And I am not willing to repeat myself ad nauseum.

The propaganda war is beginning to fail. People are asking questions, at last, and are waking up. The mouth-frothing, screaming, self-righteous, deeply hypocritical defenders of the “new normal” of pseudo-medical fascism, are losing. Keep questioning. Keep speaking the truth. Keep pressing the facts over hyperbole. 

Saddam Hussein did not have WMDs. A giant lie launched a war causing hundreds of thousands of deaths. Now we face mass distortions that will kill millions and enslave billions, if we don’t cut through the illusions, distortions, propaganda, hysteria and lies.

Choose solidarity and caring *with* freedom; or choose virtual lobotomy, and slavery to a brutal new Orwellian order. There is no third choice, other than in fantasy and delusion.

Remember what Emerson said, “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.” Sane, mature, confident people can admit when they were wrong. Insane, childish, petty, and weak-minded people cannot.

Post-Script:

Privacy is a misnomer. The entire issue has been mislabelled. Freedom from surveillance and manipulation is the big issue. Vastly more important than privacy is that we don’t cooperate with our slavers: the new global corporate fascist police state. Just say no to Big Brother.

Cognitive Dissonance, Mass Insanity & Covid Hysteria

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 25, 2020 by jtoddring

Check the numbers. The disease is not ravaging us, is not unprecedented, but has killed 1/3rd the death toll of a typical year of the common flu. DOES ANYBODY FACT-CHECK ANYMORE?! 

If 300,000 to 700,000 deaths per year from the common annual flu, which is typical, and happens every year, is not considered a pandemic, then the covid-19 virus, which  has killed 170,000 world-wide, also does not merit the term pandemic – much less mass quarantine, mass house arrest, lockdown, and shut down of the economy and the society, sweeping government powers and suspension of fundamental constitutional rights and freedoms.

Are there any sane people left who can accomplish basic reasoning? Only a rare few it seems. Even the best of the best have temporarily lost their capacity for rational thought. My God, we are in great danger – for that reason above all. The people are being manipulated en mass by power mongers, and even the best are deceived by their propaganda. Terrifying.

See Trends Journal, The Herd Mentality, to set the facts straight. Virtually all the alternative media, and even the best analysts, have been suckered, duped, taken the kool aid, and been deceived. Chilling.

But, at least whispers of dissent, and questions about draconian, authoritarian measures, are finally being raised. They must grow far more powerful, and fast, or we are doomed to live in Orwell’s worst nightmare.

By the way, I have great respect for these two men. That makes their error in not questioning the core narrative even more alarming, and all the more disturbing.

Welcome To The Brave New World

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 6, 2020 by jtoddring

Speaking of censorious scrupulosity….

While censorship is rising rapidly, with Google, Facebook and Twitter, as well as the major media, controlling and restricting what people can see or read, say or share; Facebook is now blocking me from posting my own essays from my blog to my Farcebook page. Welcome to the Brave New World. The global police state has truly arrived.

Follow my blog if you want to stay informed. Big Tech is now squarely in the business of surveillance, social engineering, censorship and social control.

Time to re-read 1984, Brave New World, and Brave New World Revisited, We, A Handmaid’s Tale, and Iron Heel – and Erich Fromm’s, Escape From Freedom, as well. It’s happening now. It’s here.

The New Blackberry 10 – Time to ditch Apple and Google both

Posted in tools and technology with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 30, 2013 by jtoddring

The Blackberry 10 has just been unveiled, and the question returns: Blackberry, iPhone or Google-based Android smart phone? Here are some thoughts, techno-weenie talk aside. We’re talking pure functionality and ethics here, not who has the best gizmo-gadgetry whiz-bang for the buck.

Google is a partner in evil, willingly collaborating with the super-creepy NSA’s deeply Orwellian global surveillance state, so Android phones are out for me because of that link. Google is also a parnter in creepiness and crime in its willing support of Chinese censorship.

Apple has apparently evil production and labour practices, so Apple is not a company I want to support at all. And as good as their technology is, ethics still matter. Blackberry is equally as good for phones in any case – if you don’t need the children’s toys of an iPhone – and Linux is superior to Macs as well.

Besides, I just want a phone – I don’t want my phone to bake bread, polish my shoes, walk my dog, or have a million largely useless apps that I’ll never use. And I’m not interested in wasting time playing games on my phone either. I just want a phone for calls, texts, email and web browsing, and maybe a note pad, alarm and calendar. The rest of the bells and whistles are of no interest to me. I’m not twelve years old, and they don’t impress me in the slightest. I want a straight-up, no-nonsense business-minded phone, not a toy.

And I’d rather support a Canadian company in any event, and definitely not support one of the global corporate giants, such as Apple or Google.

Blackberry wins for all these reasons, in my mind. Google and Apple can go stuff themselves.

“Do no evil?” That was Google’s mantra and motto, but that went out the door when it partnered with the NSA and the Chinese commissars. (Maybe Google should look up “Tiananmen Square.”) Apple is not much better. I’d rather boycott them both, along with notoriously sleezy Microsoft, and go with Blackberry and Linux instead.

The Blackberry I’m already on, and have used it for a few years now. I’ve had zero problems with it, and love it. I hate touch pads as well, by the way, now that I think of it, and I love that I can use a keypad or touch pad with a Blackberry.

Linux I’m planning on switching to, as Apple has serious ethics problems across the board, and Microsoft is, well, garbage.

But Blackberry? Definitely. Hands down.
