Joseph comments on a comment from a listener: USA and French efforts to control the internet rebuffed by Germany and Russia:
I have listened to a few of your interviews on Coast to Coast and Red Ice and I think you are brilliant! I look forward to reading your work as well.
I was just thinking about why it is that humanity’s most pathetic moral specimens always end up on top of nearly all of our major endeavors! Is it due to the fact that “malevolence” has no rules between it and it’s desires, whereas “benevolence” or even “common morality” does have rules between it and it’s desires…and malevolence is very aware of this?
In other words if “the bad” can hold “the good’s” morality hostage so to say, to get what it wants, what (if anything) can the good hold in equal hostage?
If you have already written about this I would love to read it!
It isn’t that power corrupts, but rather that the corrupt seek power.
SAMIZDAT – is a term for secret publication & distribution of government-banned literature in the Soviet Union, but has also come to mean any underground or alternative unofficial press.
In The Master Switch: The Rise & Fall of Information Empires by Tim Wu, the author makes the case that a information format eventually evolves toward monopolistic control by the very power elites that run the current “status quo”. So he makes an excellent case, based on past information empires, that the internet’s “master Switch” will be monopolized as well. The internet has and is being colonized by the coropraste landscape.
A modern military technology geared toward persuation and information management; activities symtomatic of the triumph of images over content. Much of our media now are so media-rich and content-poor that just serve to capture the eye, manipulate our emotions, and short-circuit our impulses. Much of what is going on is, quite frankly, “hidden in plain sight”.
As long as we continue to allow the media to function as a manipulative mind manager w/o fear or disfavor, we’ll continue to see the brain-numbing effects of a society underexposed to real information & analysis, rendered incapable of critical judgement & social resistance.
Sites like this are pure American: to exercise your rights means staying educated about the issues, freedom of expression, freedom to think as you will & speak as you think.
God bless you, Joseph.
Thank you! YOu too!
Joseph, will your books be released on Kindle?
Have you considered the possibility here that much of this currently unfolding and at play could, in actuality, be literal “theater” deception and ultimate manipulation towards other dualistic chess game ends wherein certain constituencies more or less controlling/manipulating ALL parties are conceiving, orchestrating, and deploying the evolutive “drama”? We have all bear witness to so much of such, as key underlying impetus and clandestine motivational factors, intrinsic to supposed international trade, economic, resource dictated, political, and otherwise conflicts and literal as well as “cold” wars, throughout the past century and even prior to that? Just a thought……
Read all my blogs… isn’t it clear from my blogs called “apocalypse theater” that this is indeed partially what I think is going on? It’s not just a thought, it’s an important observation, and I hope to be addressing it at length in the future
