THE WAR TO REIGN IN THE INTERNET HAS BEGUN
Yesterday I blogged about the problems confronting the financial elite seeking to walk the precarious fine line between the breakup of the EU and maintaining it, and implementing middle-class destroying financial policies. The fly in the ointment, of course, is information and its control, i.e., the internet. Once again, The Daily Bell has come forward with a very observant article on this new phase of warfare against the world's middle class:
Yes, The War for the Internet Has Begun
The problem, as Anthony Wile sees it - and I wholeheartedly concur with his evaluation - is this:
"There is no doubt, in my view, that the elites practiced directed history in the 20th century, setting up wars and economic catastrophes designed to consolidate world government. But in the 21st century, with so many understanding and evaluating the mechanisms of the elites, this is a considerably harder trick to pull off."
But there is an additional problem for the elite, and I hope you caught it:
"Once the elites had manufactured a phony global warming meme via "peer approved" articles in complaisant journals, the elite-controlled media was turned loose to trumpet the supposed findings. And once the articles were written, elite-controlled UN agencies created white papers from them that could be used as calls-for-action.
"These white papers were in turn picked up by elite-funded NGOs that began to foment full-fledged socio-political campaigns to "crack down" on global warming "polluters." Vast UN conferences filled by elite-proxies (hand-picked politicians) were organized as well to agitate for worldwide legislation to "control" global warming.
"Of course, all of this takes a phenomenal amount of money, but money is no object to the Anglosphere elite that controls more than 100 central banks around the world and funds their campaign for a New World Order by printing endless amounts of money-from-nothing.
"The entire process I've just described amounts to a vast echo chamber in which each element of the Anglosphere's controlled promotional mechanism plays a given part. There is a scientific consensus that then creates "news" for the media, which in turn galvanizes "action" on the part of specially selected politicians.
"And gradually a "consensus" is reached, laws are written and public education textbooks promote the necessity of this directed history to a new generation of tots who have no idea of how manipulated they are – or their world.
"Every part of this painstakingly created matrix has been virtually shattered in the 21st century. Again, we can see the result by observing the global warming meme itself. Not only was it put in doubt by the Internet – the one avenue of communication that the elites do not control – but it was virtually blown up by email leaks."
This is a phenomenon that I have commented upon myself in various interviews on George Ann Hughes' The Byte Show: by literally "buying" expert advisors, the elites have literally locked themselves into their own conceptual matrix, and are unable to think outside their own box or even receive contrary or countervailing points of view, for having bought said advisors, the very information they wish to filter for others, also gets filtered for them.
"The Internet is what the elites need to destroy – or at least control – as soon as possible. Without control of the Internet, tens of trillions of sunk costs in building this vast matrix of complaisant scientists, academics, media moguls and corporate, military and religious chiefs is rendered virtually useless."
And the mechanism for that control as Wile correctly observes, is through the "meme" of protecting copyright. The problem is, as Wile also correctly observes, this is a very old playbook. In other words, even the elite's playbook and standard practice is now a known thing. The elite's response here is typical. Rather than rely upon individual creators of "intellectual property" to monitor and enforce their own creations, they want to step in and "protect" everyone.
Enter Kim Dot.com:
"It's not right, of course. As we pointed out yesterday, the US Justice Department virtually destroyed a company based on a judicial theory that may prove untenable in court. The idea that a vendor – Megaupload – is responsible for its users is inherently questionable. Are car companies responsible for their drivers? Are lawnmower builders responsible for the state of their clients front yards?"
And that is the point of course, for it is a violation of the customary rules of law and use, and thus, inevitably, destined to fail. By the same logic, all central banks should be shutdown because of the violations and egregious criminality of a few. Instead, they have been propped up and bailed out.
Technology itself is outpacing the elite's ability to maintain control:
"The trouble – and it IS a problem – is that history shows us that copyright and even patent law are clumsy instruments with which to combat the truth-telling of a particular information facility. People generally – in groups – tend to use a technology to its fullest extent.
"A battle has been joined, much as it was joined after the advent of the Gutenberg Press. But it is one that the elites had trouble finishing, and they only fully regained control of the conversation in my view in the 20th century. And now they have to do it all over again."
In other words, they may succeed for a while, but ultimately, the whole scheme, from global government, currency, internet control, will fall apart, because there will inevitably arise technologies and techniques for sidestepping them. Just ask the Soviet Union...it was called samizdat, and led people like Alexander Solzhenitsyn to issue his famous statement that when you strip a man of everything, he has no more reason to fear speaking out against the enslaving elite.

A couple notes on ‘file sharing’ and ‘copyright’ and ‘ethics’:
I think one can make a logical argument based on a rigorous understanding of Platonic forms, that ideas cannot be monetized in the sense that they are now with the idea of “intellectual property” and “copyright infringement.” This is why Plato called those folks ‘sophists’ who wanted to turn wisdom into a buisness. What is there for thought is accessible to all in potential. I define ethics as what is objectively good for a society based on doing philosophy. What needs to be asked here is if a society of free flowing ideas and intellection and therefore ‘file sharing’ is objectively better than one that is not. Sometimes technology outpaces and makes obsolete old ideas in the same way a computer makes obsolete a typewriter. Technology, in this case the internet ,makes us have to reasses what it means to be ethical. Cutting into the wallets and profits is not a good way to define what is an ethical standard, no more than competition or technology renders those abilities to turn a dollar uneffective and therefore unethical. What it means is that we have to reassess what ethics is and do so on very solid ground. In many ways, art can go back to being ‘art’ instead of a commodity circus.
On the same note, I am not advocating laissez-faire ‘file sharing,’ for a couple of reasons: a) The system that we live in, currently, is a self-serving one. That is to say, we are a selfish society, me included. We need to grow as a society with more ethical awareness. b) since ‘copyright infringement’ involves stiff penalities, it may not be prudent for you to engage in some of those activities, if this means running the risk of being able to take care of your family or if this might harm the ability of others to take care of their families.
On the flip side, if you advocate a flee flow of Platonic ideas as a ‘gift giving society’, do you give? Artists, writers, software developers deserve to be able to sustain themselves to be able to pump out more thought and products and be able to make a living at what they love to do. Those that advocate the Platonism need to be able to look themselves in the eye and ask whether or not they are living the Platonism in their heart, that goes everyone.
Controlling the internet has to be far more subtle than simp[e copyright etc.
People are to technologically aware and able. The (d)elites will need a means like ‘western civilisation’. You can choose, have, live and are ‘free’-but you are still a wage slave, still reliant on their systems.
Rein, you meant rein, but it was probably Freudian….
Is that a dodo bird?
How very extant of you.
Copyright? Look at the fine for copying a movie. Look at the jail time.After 9/11, the FBI was taken off white collar crime and put on anti-terrorism (when the terrorism of 9/11 was false-flag); but the FBI is still backing the copyright laws to protect Hollywood.
And did anyone pick up on Dick Eastman’s essay on copyright laws? Pretty good message here:
“Dick Eastman: How come all of the old movies are owned by Ted Turner? How does that legally created monopoly exist where he charges big money for movies that cost under a dollar to make available? And how come existing old movies are often on moratorium, sometimes for years and sometimes, it seems, permanently? Who really thinks that the current system of copyright laws and Jewish publishing and broadcasting monopoly furthers creativity and invention – that it rewards the creative artist or the writer? Writers and artists do not gain from copyright laws. Copyright laws reward the media monopolist and give him control over the cultural heritage of our country. The old movies are American culture. After a few years they should be public domain.
I use pictures from old movies in some of my postings – but the Jewish Mafia wanted an air-tight law in order to go after people like me for doing so.
All this time wasted to protect Hollywood Jews in their monopoly over our cultural heritage.
I will, if elected, change the copyright laws. Once upon a time, the copyright on Mickey Mouse was going to run out, and Congress changed the law – the law which existed when Disney created Mickey Mouse – to prevent the people from using this creation of Walt Disney the man, in their own creative ways.
Copyright is intended to make sure that the creators of art and literature are rewarded for their efforts – and that is valid. But in today’s world the media monopoly buys the rights and keeps the copyright forever.
Also, any invention that is not exploited fully MUST be put in the public domain – made available to the public after a certain length of time – with no thought how it will affect the status quo rich.
Individual producers of movies who bankroll the movie should have copyright protection for a reasonable time: less than ten years.
I will use anti-trust on all the media. And I will change the patent laws. Rupert Murdoch, Cox, Newhouse, Zuckerman, and the richest man in the world down in Mexico etc. will own no US media at all when I am done. With or without Congress.
Struggling artists are going to be getting social security. If they have a great book or painting or video project, they will find plenty of backers on the internet: a thousand backers at $20 or $100 each is easy if the idea and the artist are good and well-known.
We can end copyright abuse by the copyright holders – and still have the greatest flowering of creative art the nation has ever seen. Kinds of art and film and literature that have not existed and cannot exist in the current Judeo-pornographic culture.”
I am an artist and I copyright all my work so that no one else can copyright my work and stop me from using it.
I would like to make more money from my art but since the music publishing industry has been destroyed by the pirating and the like, what good is copyright law anymore?
I agree whole heartedly. There are greater issues at stake, like the freedom of humanity!
By all means, do away with the copyright laws and a rebirth of progress come.
The temporary setback against SOPA and PIPA in the US congress was the literal “shot heard round the world,” in this war.
Everything you said about this is correct, and the elites are frantic to regain control. The immediacy of the net and instant electronic communication is beyond their understanding – they seek slow, plodding homeostasis, chained to their outdated ideology and their delusions of godhood.
They do have a lot of control of the infrastructure, but given the widespread capability in creating ad hoc electronic networks, they are losing that edge.
Even if they could shut down enough of the net to cripple the movement of information, they would bankrupt themselves, because the net has become the linchpin for their economic engine – lose that, and everything else falls apart. If everything falls apart, then the ensuing chaos will wreck the world for them as well as everyone else.
Granted, they have their black project resources, and may very well be able to do all manner of amazing things – but the bottom line is that us poor mundanes are their economic engine, and without us, their house of cards folds like a cheap tent. Gods without worshipers are a pathetic lot.
I am also willing to bet that if the situation gets that bad, there are many now silent in the black project world who would suddenly realign their loyalties to the rest of the human race, and a flood of powerful technology would find its way into the hands of those who would further the cause of human freedom.
The erosion of their control of information through media continues, with the ebook now dethroning the fascist gatekeepers of the printed word. They may have created the structures for the technology, but they neither understand nor control things once they are let loose. The acceleration of technological change is ramping up, and they no longer control how that flows.
However, it is vital that we strive to keep the net (and the rest of our world) as free as is possible. All the legal maneuvers and legal scheming by corporations and their puppets must be carefully watched and trashed. We must continue to make our voices heard and vote with our dollars. Boycott any manufacturer or company that supports control and censorship and make the message heard by the shareholders. Share the pain of economic downturn with the parasites who profit from the labors of others without contributing themselves.
Push for the revocation of the treatment of corporations as “people” under the law, and push for a return to individual sovereignty. Like a Wall Street Occupier sign said, “I’ll believe corporations are people when Texas executes one.”
The two front doors, SOPA & PIPA were blocked.
…So they are now going through the back door with the swag.
It’s called ACTA.
Even if they shut it down, as is pointed out, there will be creative innovators who will find a way around it. They already are.
AND….we could work on becoming telepathic! Technology only mimics what we could be as creators if we only claimed our power.
That would be the ultimate workaround! No more secrets, no more lies…
Your mind is Awareness in action! Finally, some Are “getting it.” Cyberspace is a Training Tool for Functional Awareness of HyperSpace… where Oneness is, uh, er… “face to face in the Spherical Place.” Some have achieved this quickly; others are achieving it as we speak (lots of young ‘uns); others, well, maybe sooner, or too late. When your back is to the Wall, your Finest Abilities often make manifest New Soul-U-t-Ions. Verrry Excellent comment!
Engand was the birthplace of the worker’s movement and it is sort of poetic justice that it was also its deathbed. The murder weapon, naturally, was privitization.
Now we have various instruments designed to strangle free speech in the noose of SOPA, PIPA and ACTA.
Again in Engalnd during the 1500s, street hawkers and ballad criers(who sang ‘bawdy’ songs to attract buyers) were the largest sellers of book in Europe. They pushe literacy into the countryside, carrying unauthorized editions of popular literature and almanacs. By the early 18th century, pirate book hawkers were outselling legal stores. If it weren’t for this pirates a little known author wouldn’t have been populized to the point where he is ubiquitous today: Shakespeare!
Piracy isan intregal market force.
Chapter 20, Loretta Napoleoni’s Maonomics Why Cinese Make Better Capitalists Than We Do, spells it out in spades.
Max Keiser doesa good job in his Keiser Report: Kill Hollywood (E241)
(if max doesn’t take, google it)
Disney copyrighted the song Happy Birthday. It’s $10,000 to put in a film. It cost restaurants $ for a birthday song, so they don”t do it. TGIF doesn’t want to pay. The Girl Souts Campire Song is copyrighted. Shaquille O’Neal offered to pay the $1,500 fee for a group in LA when he heard about. The Girl Scouts said no: that they would rather stand on principle than to pay it(pun intended)!
So their currency scam is falling apart, they are having trouble starting a major war, and they can no longer control the levers of communication. Well, don’t count these Babylon banksters out. They have another trick up their sleeve which they may not have used since medieval Europe but it is devastatingly effective and always puts the ball back in their court: they will release a plague..
“…release a plague..” ?
That is an understatement !
How come you don’t know that all the ‘new’ diceases
from mycoplasma infection to AIDS
to Marburg…to Sars etc. and so on………
are all man-made ?
What a creator !
Now THAT’S truth !
I meant diseases, but if the shoe fits
THEY make us wear it !
I heard Dr. Farrel’ls opinion on The Byte Show. I’m not sure thats this whole internet fight is not just another bit of social engineering. They make it look as though it’s a fight over the internet, mabey even look as though we won a bit (they two steps forward, then by making look as though we won, take one back, and the elites still come out ahead), but in the end, all goes according to plan. I’m still open to Dr. Farrell’s view though.
“And gradually a “consensus” is reached, laws are written and public education textbooks promote the necessity of this directed history to a new generation of tots who have no idea of how manipulated they are – or their world.”
I really like this sentence here. I myself had an inkling from a young age that all was not as it should be in my life and therefore in my world. I came to the conclusion that we are all controlled to some degree. That our great “American” lifestyle was the epitome of existence… (saying that hurts me greatly for I once believed this.) Thanks to Dr. Farrell and others that pursue these “Elites” I now have the proof, for myself, to fully realize how manipulated we were, are, and could possibly be in the future.
Anther point I want to make about this line is that a vast majority of the younger crowd don’t have the driving force behind them to discover that this is the way their world is, that these “people” control, or try to control, everything you do and everything that is in your world. Myself being a bit more inquisitive to subjects often not spoken of, I’ve found Dr. Farrell’s work and have begun educating myself on the realities of our world, instead of focusing on the “fiction” of my future, for that story would be told for me if I didn’t learn about the hidden hands at work.
Dr. Farrell I really want to thank you for fighting the intellectual part of this battle, for what is a war without intelligence. I feel I can now make the right decisions, procure at least a little truth out of the substance of life, and carry on with a fire burning in my gut. All ingredients for making the relatively small life changes I need to make in the face of these “Elites”.
Also, kudos to the Daily Bell! When did journalism get back on the right path? Or why haven’t the “Elites” not gotten this publication under their thumb?
I think the Eue (?) to all those sheeple is giving them
My Daily Bell is not daily.
there are lots of alternate news sites out there put out
by real journalists who have known for a long time that
any truth or truth investigations was off and out of bounds.
[The problem to me is that I keep getting unsubscribed to them ! ]
A friend of mine, a lowly Human Interest reporter for
a major local newspaper for 18 years, was completely frustrated by it,
even though it did not affect her much.
The experience of the loss of experience.is one of the oldest motifs of Critical Theory.
Princess Leia said something about trying to grasp sand, the harder you squeeze the more you lost… something like that… and that’s the internet pattern here.
I have stated: “Everything Is Going According To Plan.” By the ‘time’ a ponderous, disorganized humanity ‘awakens,’ it will be to the Coils of The Ever-Hungry Serpent of Control. Some call this a Patriarchal System (Order, Piwer), which is Opposed by the Matriarchal System (Chaos, “Love Is All There Is”). … The “Serpents” are represented in all modern monies, whether as “s’s,” “lotuses,” “judgement halls,” “crescents” (half sinewave, duality). These are “the Body” of “Love-&-Power” (the Two Poles) which arre Worshipped worldwide by the fawningh supplicants. A recent yahoo news articles reprinted a Study that surmised, “People Really Arer Sheeplike,” wherein they discovered 95% generally followed a mere 5% of Directors. The Anglo, Asian & Aryan Elite are Just the Drivers & Herd-Dogz of humanity, working for UnSeen Guardians-Guards-Gardeners, of which Yahweh & Cohorts are merely one Head, of A ReGenerative Monster that Rules Impacably via A Grid Structure that Is In Place, governing th Unfoldment of a grazing sheeple (humans). The domested pets & drivers chosen from among the are aware of only parts of this Controlling Geometric Grid Framework (2D) that Embodies ItSelf through “time-fields” (3D & 4D, Alltime). Isn’t an Ignorant, Fawning animal “Grateful” to a Problem-Solving Master(s)?… The Birth to such Realizations are always Bloody (& some say beautiful)… but then, you find the child is just another “Bastard,” that Echoes Psycho-Aberrations seen over & over. The Dark Trinity have a Plan… call it A Maze, through which are running a smart Rat/Sheep called humanity. Prepare for the the Latest Turns. Finance is just the Visible Electro-Prod. The Truck to the Slaughter-House is waiting at the end of the maze/corral. Elite-Illuminati-ELs.
I’m doing some reading on the “Serpent” and why it is so
prominant in ancient history, in myths and legends;
all over the place.
I finally got my copy of “Saucers………….”
but I have to clear off my ‘reading’ table a bit first !
And why are you smiling and I’m not.
It’s because of the deep, dark secrets I’m harboring
that are not really fun [for me, anyway]
The key is, there are 3 Serpents: 2 Duality Serpents (“creation,” action-reaction), & 1 Causal Serpent with Wings (Transmuted-Transformed-Transcended) that Holds the Middle Position. This latter, Central Serpent cannot enter It’s own Duality, for it is Not a Non-Zero Potential – It is A Perfect Circle, All Potency: Perfection kills I-m-perfection by Nearness. 0=All Potential; O=All Potency (Completion). The Duality Serpents are Dual-Shielded from this 3rd Serpent by EM Brilliance-Barrier (hence, the “space” where the peak is seperated from the base on a pyramid symbol; same with the famous Sistine chapel pic: the “space”). The old saying, “The Truth will set you ‘Free’,” was intentionally left uncompleted because that might have either over-frightened new slaves or actually set them free: “…By Killing you” (Perfecting, perfect Circle/Globe). What did Yul Brynner say to Charleton Heston when his (3rd) Serpent swallowed Pharoah’s 2 Serpents (of Duality)? This Symbolization was revealed in J. Farrell’s book (think it was CW) as the Shortest Possible Wave (Sinewave). However, the term “Cusp” must be appreciated to Apprehend who is Running This Show. In yor reading/research, keep your eYe on The Center. (& Smile, dammit!… You’re on UnCandid Camera.)
Very good, SS……
I like that…………. it rings !
So the Frankenstein Monster does in fact,
turn on his creator.
once again, nothing new here.
I’ve been talking about its self-destruction all along.
Because of its total evil, it cannot be sustained,
it cannot self-sustain.
In my view, slavery and censorship go hand-in-glove. The internet is a threat to the elite’s poison agenda and a large portion of the population world wide are now tuned to the internet censorship efffort. What happens after the internet censorhip takes place will only become evident as the population gets sick and tired of this cancer on humanity and rebels; and here we go again as this cycle repeats itself until the entire central bank structure, concentration of power, is destroyed- it just doesn’t work. Hopefully humanity wakes up.
