BRAVE NEW (MEDICAL) WORLD

A couple of days ago I awarded the very first Kammler-DARPA prize to the idea of a medical microchip to monitor whether or not we're all being good boys and girls and taking our medicine and eating our peas. There I argued that such an idea has already probably been conceptually expanded by the likes of agencies such as DARPA and big pharmaceutical companies like Muck, possibly in conjunction with the FPA (Food and Poison Administration) and GMO foods conglomerates like Duponzanto. Medical fascism arrived in this country long ago, but the new toy box promises virtually unlimited new vistas for repression. Some of those "modifications" I speculated about were chips to actually diagnose and prescribe drugs, to be automatically radioed to a computer pharmacy, which would automatically ship your poiso.... er.... prescription to you(and you'd better take it too, because the chip could also fine, try, and sentence you to sundry unpleasantries if you don't).

Well, all of that is, of course, rather draconian, and not a big selling point. So how would the medical fascists at Muck Pharmaceutical, the Food and Poison Administration, and Duponzanto, possibly sell the public on the idea of swallowing (or being injected with) such chips in their "medicine"? Why, through the promise of longer life, virtual immortality, as it were. Consider the following:

They Really Do Want To Implant Microchips Into Your Brain

That's it: think happy carefree thoughts, unstressful thoughts (stress is a killer, you know), or let us beam "corrective" thoughts into your brain...

...better yet, let us chip you with the Royal Raymond Rife-Alain Priore Chip, that will beam a steady flow of resonance EM frequencies repairing your cells, let us inject you with implants to release nano-machines to repair your cells when our brain-wave body-cellular-function monitoring oncology chips detect the slightest presence of (cancer, TB, arterial plaque.... insert malady here)...

The message of the medical fascism is thus increasingly clear: be a part of the system, surrender freedom, normal humanity and relationships, in return for the promise of virtual immortality courtesy the emergent technologies... plug into the government and let the government plug into you, become part of the great corporate person of the future...

And when you're no longer wanting to function, or, "they" determine you're no longer "viable", "they" can just throw the switch, and turn you off, in mid-sentence...

Thank goodness Obama-Romney-care is there to protect us from this future...

....yea.... right....

See you on the flip side.

  1. Hello Folks,

    Due to circumstances beyond my control I haven’t been visiting Joseph’s Web-site. I find the articles posted and viewers comments as pognant, satirical and gennerally always on the mark! (you bunch of smart-alecks!)

    Now about microchips — most people will trade their freedom for security anytime! What’s even more fascinating and I find truly ironic (it’s awful!) are the the lines of people waiting hours to pay for their enslavement>

    Freedom and the subsequently not knowing the final result that comes along with Freedom (versus predictable programming with some erronous measure of statistical probability?) is surely a worry for most people.

    I like to say I am liberated from all that but ‘that’ statement would be a pile of baloney. Pure experimentalism is risky yet how else do we get off Hamlet’s Mill?

    Anyway, even if one of you found and revealed a possible answer to the above question it probably would be appropriated by DARPA and other necro-phobic Organizations. The big boys must know every little keystroke or brand of cereal we buy but we cant or must not know a single thing about sic “THEM!”

    Nothing like having one’s hands tied together in a Boxing Match!

    God-Dam Binary Organization?

    1. A Second Afterthought,

      In a world of decay or where everything is disintergreting including ‘selves.” binary opposition only affirms our identity. An Identity we ourselves never created! How do we get past our Culture? It seems we are just products off some macabre factory clone-line?

      Deus Abscondus or ET where are You? Ha, ha! (I can hear a voice saying “Eat Your Reese’s Pieces! Remember this — Be nice little children and Eat All Your Vegetables. (I was riding on a bus recently when I overheard one person telling another this: “The kid didn’t even know what a CARROT was or what it looks like! Imagine that?

      No, with intelligence like that I don’t think THEY will need to manufacture many MICRO-CHIPS!

    As “their” sophistication grows, the movie theaters will become shooting galleries. Not only of illegal pharmaceuticles(programmed in the legal ones); but live rounds(programmed in lethal ones).
    In fact, the movie theaters …will be on, whenever you open your eyes.
    And an implanted chip behind you retina?
    God knows what planet your on, or going to.

    Adventures Unlimited is my Big-Pharma choice.
    Or, was that decision programmed?
    (I’ll have to check my meds and get back to you.)

  3. Nothing more boring than being happy all the time. I would rather experience a range of emotions than being lobotomized and monitored by a corporate microchip. Death by stress sounds more appealing to me than ebola, cancer or car crash. Slave New World not Brave New World.

    1. I never even met any truly ‘happy’ people, for that matter.
      Hardly even content………..
      so why anyone would want to live ‘forever…’ on that note….
      in other words,
      what’s so great about immortality [in the same body]?

      The concept of hell is what really ‘sells’ immortality,
      and very well, as my own mother was “deathly” afraid
      of that. She was a mischevious child who grew into
      a naughty woman. She held on through the only ‘hell’
      that I knew she would ever know.

      Anyway, the fat lady
      [I take it as the ever pregnant Mother Nature]
      has started to clear Her throat.

      Except for the true “carrot” people who could never
      continue to live [that kind of guilt kills]
      it will be a strange, awesome and wonderful [full of wonder]
      ride into 2013!
      Enjoy
      🙂

      1. Hal,

        I am like you in the sense that I too never met any truly happy people. Do they exist or are they just figments of our imagination or fantasies?(Would we know such a person if we even met one?)

        In my recent readings I came across this footnote: I found it so fascinating I keep it in my wallet as currency. Maybe you also can get something out of it?

        “E.g., Theognis, 425-428 : “Best of all for all things upon the earth it is
        not to be born nor to behold the splendors of the Sun : next best to traverse as soon as possible the gates of Hades.” See also the almost identical passage in (Edipus in Colonus, 1225. — The Anthology is full of pessimistic utterances: “Naked came I upon the earth, naked I go below the ground — why then do I vainly toil when I see the end naked before me?” —“How did I come to be? Whence am I? Wherefore did I come? To pass away. How can I learn aught when naught I know? Being naught I came to life : once more shall I be what I was. Nothing and nothingness is the whole race of mortals.” — “For death we are all cherished and fattened like a herd of hogs that is wantonly butchered.”
        The difference between Greek pessimism and the oriental and modern variety is that the Greeks had not made the discovery that the pathetic mood may be idealized, and figure as a higher form of sensibility. Their spirit was still too essentially masculine for pessimism to be elaborated or lengthily dwelt on in their classic literature. They would have despised a life set wholly in a minor key, and summoned it to keep within the proper bounds of lachrymosity. The discovery that the enduring emphasis, so far as this world goes, may be laid on its pain and failure, was reserved for races more complex and ( so to speak ) more feminine than the Hellenes had attained to being in the classic period. But all the same was the outlook of those hellenes blackly pessimistic.

        1. It’s not surprising.

          I always wondered if and HOW anyone could be happy,
          or even content in this place the way THEY have made it
          into the butthole of the Universe………………

          literally, since the Totbots can only resonate with poop
          and perverted sex

  4. Carrots Joseph,
    it’s carrots that have been shoved down our throats
    for millennia.
    Remember, “Eat your carrots.”?

    [And they are in everything!
    I eat the little bitty ones in soups,
    but they still don’t seem too good.
    And strangely enough, I love the thin RAW carrots..
    my mother used to give me those as she peeled for
    her and my father]

    Anyway, I do…………it worked better than Ipacac…
    and I warned the Nun when she told me
    to eat those overcooked carrots in pre-school
    and then, as I still had the last bite in my mouth,
    my gut gave a big heave and forced them all back onto my plate.

    “Yahweh” hasn’t set too well with me since,
    as she accused me of throwing up “on purpose” afterward !

    That was the end of pre-school and I did my own reading, anyway.

    There is a reason
    [I now know]
    why that is so

  5. These ideas aren’t new, medical tech types have been making similar promises for the future for years.

    It’s the enforced part that seems made up.

    Then obamonney care just makes sure that private insurers and big pharma profit when you decide to implant xyz. (One would think the makers of implantable meds would have learnt some lessons from the problems associated with longterm contraceptive implants in women.)
