This cow won't bow

For at least several years now, I have listened, and read, with some puzzlement, the warnings about Technocracy from people such as Patrick Wood.

I am well versed in many of the technologies that Patrick Wood has been warning us of, but didn’t feel, in my gut, why these technologies, in the hands of the elite bastards on this planet, were any more or less dangerous to us humans than various other ideologies (Communism, Fascism, Nazism, Tyranny, …) that poison our politics.

Now I think I see the problem. The elite bastards think they can “domesticate” humans, just as Big Ag did cows a half century ago.

===

The insight came while I was listening to this little gem of a video from Amazing Polly:

The elite bastards are trying to do to humanity what “Big Ag” did to dairy cows.

When I was a child, long ago, my dad was a dairy farmer. He had perhaps 20 cows. They each had names and individual personalities. He took good care of them, and in turn they provided milk he could sell.

But then came computerized tracking of everything the cow ate, how much milk it provided, when it got sick or calved, and so on. This enabled farms with hundreds of cows, nowadays thousands or tens of thousands. Little farms like my dad’s got big, or got out of business.

Nowadays cows are numbered, chipped, and tracked from birth to hamburger. They are genetically bred and modified for maximum profit. Big Ag doesn’t give a god damn what the cows think of this, except in so far as it impacts their bottom line.

I actually had a job while I was in high school, helping collect such data for other farms in my town, after my dad sold his own farm. That data was used to sort cows by their profitability, so the farmer could easily identify the least profitable cows at the bottom of the list and send them to the slaughter house.

It now seems that the elite bastards think they have just about enough tracking, controlling, manipulating, … technology in place that they can “domesticate” humans, as Big Ag did cows a half century ago.

This technology includes:

  • genetic modification via vaccines,
  • weakening (aka “taming”) of the herd via toxic food, water, air and meds,
  • surveillance via satellite, mobile phones, ubiquitous cameras,
  • control via IOT devices, smart grids, schools, news and social media,
  • “smart” software, sensors and actuators (aka “Artificial Intelligence”),
  • massive compute power in the cloud and distributed around us,
  • massive, centralized, on-line news, search and education sites,
  • massive, centralized, on-line social interaction sites,
  • splitting us into antagonistic groups (explained by Jon Rappoport)
  • self-driving, internet connected, electric cars,
  • “reimagine the police” using the above tech (explained by James Corbett)
  • 5G to facilitate the above (see my Weaponization of 5G post), and
  • digital currencies (see my digital currency reply, below).

Meanwhile, using

  • “new” (new to the public, known secretly for decades) energy technology,
  • improved propulsion systems, on and off planet,
  • improved robotic mining on earth and asteroids, and
  • improved robotic manufacturing,

the power and reach of human civilization will extend out into the solar system, with diminishing reliance on the individual ordinary human and increased empowerment of those in control.

Just as Marx noted that “religion is the opiate of the masses”, so it is with politics. It matters little whether one’s political views tend right or left, conservative or liberal, anarchist or socialist, if one is not in control of one’s destiny.

===

I’m figuring that the elite bastards are in for a rude surprise. Humans are more difficult to “herd”, to “domesticate”, than the elite bastards realize, than they are even capable of realizing.

Cute, Paul!!! :laughing: “This cow won’t bow”!!! IMO, if each of us realized we are an Eternal, Sovereign Being BEFORE entering this “meatsuit” that would make a whole lot of difference!!!
Hence the effort to keep us “dumbed down”!!! :crazy_face:

Just when I think I’ve read the best post ever, Mr. Mooster pops up another one. This truly may be the very best post I ever read in this lifetime (so far) as it seems to accurately sum up the precise reality we face, why we are facing it, the details of what we are facing, who is imposing it and through what means.

I don’t bow either.

And though I strive never to impose my opinion as to what others should do, in this case I can’t help but add - no one should.

Another, key element of this “new world order”:

  • The U.S. Petro-Dollar “global reserve currency” will be replaced with a network of inter-locked national and regional digital currencies.

Technically, I am convinced, contrary to almost everyone I read or listen to on this topic, that these new digital currencies will not be on a “blockchain”. To me, a long time student of data synchronization algorithms and structures, the word “blockchain” refers to a specific family of sharing algorithms such as seen in Bitcoin. In my view, this “blockchain” data structure is entirely unsuitable for what the elite bastards intend. Blockchains will be the Compuserve BBS and America OnLine (AOL) of the birth of digital currencies. Blockchains are by design inherently and irrevocably too slow and inefficient, by orders of magnitude.

Instead, other shared database technology is being developed by and for the use of the major banks and financial institutions to implement global digital currencies. These digital currencies will be controlled using shared databases running on large computers operated by these institutions. They will be denominated in units familiar to us, such as Dollars, Pounds, Euros, Yen, Yuan, and Rubles, except that the Euro may partially collapse back into some of its constituent national currencies. In turn, the everyday digital currency transaction tools used by ordinary people, businesses and governments will be various digital applications, operating on top of, and providing the end-user interface into, these core banking systems.

If Spiro Skouras is correct in his video The Banking Digital Arms Race is Here! then a platform like or developed from Ripple (XRP) will be used by ordinary people, businesses and governments for cross-currency transactions, such as when I, an American, order something directly from a Chinese business.

In any case, all of the platforms and applications used by ordinary people, businesses and governments will have strong “Know Your Customer (KYC)” regulations, enabling the controllers of the system to track and control the transactions of each identifiable person.

Anonymity will not be allowed.

As the Introduction to the 1963 television series “The Outer Limits” said:

There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur, or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: There is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to…

I expect that gold will be the “official” monetary store, underlying these new base digital currencies. International monetary imbalances between nations and major financial institutions will (apparently at least, to us peons) be settled in gold. The price of gold as denominated in the various monetary units (Dollars, Pounds, Euros, Yen, Yuan, Ruble, … will rise several fold, as the primary means of resetting the gargantuan debt overhang of the current US Dollar dominated system. But gold will not be the ordinary coin of the realm, used by ordinary people, in most lands.

Rather commercialized digital currencies will be the “coins of the realm”, as these can be closely integrated into the global tracking and control grid.

The financial forecasters that I have found most reliable, such as Jim Willie (http://golden-jackass.com) are currently predicting that only gold, not silver, will serve in this base monetary manner. They forecast that silver will also become quite valuable, but that that will be because silver will be an essential element in future technologies, rather than a core monetary base.

However, I may be guilty of a common failing of experts in some particular discipline, when I insist on taking the wide spread usage of some particular technical word from that discipline to mean to most people just what it means within that narrow discipline.

Instead, it might be more accurate to recognize that the word “blockchain” has taken on a new meaning, to a wider audience. In this wider usage, “the blockchain” refers to various interconnected and shared accounting ledgers, each of which multiple independent parties can reliably update, and that are highly resistant to failures or fraud from any one or few of those sharing access thereto.

If that, or some rough approximation of that, is what most people mean by the “blockchain”, then yes, I expect most financial and monetary transactions and contracts to be “put on the blockchain”, in the coming future.

On further thought, regarding cryptocurrencies, here are my current hunches as to their future:

The central banks of at least major nations (U.S., Russia, China, Germany, U.K., Japan, …) will issue national currencies, in most cases (except in particular the Euro) replacing one-to-one existing central bank currencies.

These new “digital” currencies will be for the most part, ostensibly, gold backed, using re-priced (five or ten times higher than present) gold stores held (or claimed to be held) in their central vaults. By “gold backed” I mean that gold, not (the present day) U.S. Treasury debt, will be the primary means of settling trade imbalances, and perhaps the primary

The retail and commercial banks, corporations, national treasuries and central banks will use shared, closed (to the public) “digital currencies” that are, at their core, modern, distributed, databases for transacting these currencies between themselves. The best example I know of such a technology is Hashgraph. Little is known to the public of Hashgraph, as its target customer base is large institutions, not ordinary people or businesses. This new technology will compete with, and perhaps replace the existing systems such Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT), Fedwire, Cross-Border Interbank Payment System (CIPS), and Automated Clearing House (ACH).

Next generations of existing credit and payment cards such as Mastercard and VISA will continue to be the primary means by which individual consumers pay merchants for goods and services.

Transactions between individuals, such as for games, gambling, and other small payments will be done using mobile phone apps. The app users will usually grant the app provider direct access to their bank account, and the transactions will be denominated in their local national currency. Alternatively, convenience or check cashing stores will exchange cash for credits on one of these apps. The more successful of these apps will somehow connect with existing merchant payment networks (Mastercard, VISA, …) so that money stored in these apps, like cash in one’s wallet or on a pre-paid “credit” card, can be used to pay retailers. These apps will be built on top of such “second generation” crypto-currencies as Ethereum or EOS or whatever competitor of those can get their performance up to the order of a million transactions per second, at close to or essentially zero cost per transaction.

Bitcoin in particular, as a “proof-of-work” blockchain based cryptocurrency, has no hope of scaling to the performance or low transaction fees needed for this. I agree with the forecast of Colin Talks Crypto in his recent video Bitcoin vs Bitcoin Cash vs Ethereum vs EOS that Bitcoin will lose it’s position as the most valuable crytocurrency, when the next “crypto-bubble” shows Bitcoin to be hopelessly slow and expensive, compared to, for example, Bitcoin cash, Ethereum, and EOS.

“Smart apps” for non-monetary items of pseudo-monetary value, such as for store coupons or airline “miles”, could also be custom apps on the same Ethereum, EOS, or similar base.

Cross-border payments, such as my Mexican neighbor sending money back to his relatives in Mexico, to be converted on the fly from US Dollars to Mexican Pesos, will be handled by something such as Ripple (XRP), replacing (if they doesn’t upgrade successfully) such services as Western Union

Moving national currencies in and out of these cryptocurrencies will either continue to be done by the sort of exchanges we have now, or by retail banks. Either way, increasingly strong Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations will be applied to the exchanges or banks doing these transactions. The dominant currencies will be those issued by national central banks, and any substantial flows of monetary wealth, whether it involves real estate, cryptocurrencies, national currencies, or other assets, will be tracked by agencies of the “powers that be.”

Most of the above is geeky details of a transition to more digital, network based, monetary transaction mechanisms.

These details tend to obscure some more important points. These points are in the main focus of this thread:

  • All monetary transactions, world-wide, large and small, will become increasingly “cashless”, meaning increasingly online and digital, subject to central surveillance and control.
  • A somewhat off topic aside: I’m listening just now to former airline pilot Juan Browne, at the 8:52 mark of this video, observe that “business travelers” won’t be flying nearly as much, as (thanks to the COVID-19 lockdown) they’ve “finally figured out how to do a Zoom chat without interrupting each other, talking over the top of each other”. One more element of human activity goes online, subject to central surveillance and control.
  • DeCentralized Finance (DeFi) will moveevery financial service you use today — savings, loans, trading, insurance and more, “onto the Web” into “decentralized” (meaning shared by major corporations, government and intelligence agencies) shared databases.
  • Contracts, property records, licenses, credentials, medical records, insurance policies, and more will move to “Smart Aps”, running on “smart contract” platforms such as Ethereum, EOS, and HashGraph.
  • Bio-identification, vaccination certificates, geo-location, birth,marriage and death certificates, government tax and benefit identification, and other “perfecting of the human collateral” (as Catherine Austin Fitts might say it) will also move to “smart contract” platforms.
  • The world’s dominant currency, which has been the U.S. Petro-Dollar, will be replaced with (supposedly) gold-backed currencies issued by the major central banks.
  • By repricing gold upwards by five or ten times, the balance sheets of some of these central banks can be healed.
  • The financial power which has been centered in the U.S. Federal Reserve (as the primary issuer of Dollar denominated debt), will be re-balanced to a multi-national consortium of major central banks, coordinated by the Bank for International Settlements, in Basel, Switzerland.
  • Money will continue to be created primarily by bank’s extending debt.
  • The end of the Petro-Dollar as the world’s reserve currency coincides with both the decline and replacement of petroleum as the world’s primary energy source, and the decline and retirement of the United States as the world’s sole super power.
