Elder Patriot – First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a communist,
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a socialist,
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a trade unionist,
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – because I was not a Jew,
Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak out for me. – Martin Niemoller on The Holocaust
While the debate rages about “Fake News” and what to do about it, no one has been able to provide an adequate definition of it so that something might legally be done about. After all, you can’t legislate opinion.
Or, can you?
By now everyone knows that Conservatism is under attack from Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, et al, adding to the belief that these new media giants were all launched by, and beholden to, the Deep State.
Have those liberals applauding the silencing of dissenting opinion considered where this is heading, and how it is going to affect them in the near future?
We are all aware of the importance our personal credit score plays in our lives. What if you were also assigned a personal “social” score, as well? That’s a score based on the websites you visit, the bars and shops you frequent, the products you purchase, and how artificial intelligence interprets your communications through texts, emails, and phone conversations.
Think that isn’t on the drawing board? Think again. It’s already happening in China.
The Chinese system uses a variety of data to determine credit scores, that includes each individual’s hobbies, interaction with friends, shopping habits and lifestyle.
If you buy things that the regime approves of, like dishwashers and baby supplies, your credit score increases. Pornography, sex toys, or even video games and your score takes a hit.
Bruce Kennedy writing for CBS’ Moneywatch warned about how pervasive the Chinese system is:
“Other factors that can drive down a credit score on the Chinese system are no-no’s such as posting political opinions online without permission or describing controversial current events — such as the recent Chinese stock market collapse — in ways that differ from the official government version.”
Rick Falkvinge, a blogger at privateinternetaccess.com explained further:
“But the kicker is that if any of your friends do this — publish opinions without prior permission, or report accurate but embarrassing news — your score will also deteriorate. And this will have a direct impact on your quality of life.”
Toe the government line or you will be isolated from the herd and your life will be destroyed.
What does that have to do with you? Wake up.
Best not to challenge that parking ticket, eh? IRS audit? Shut your mouth and pay them whatever they want. Government official sexually abused your child? Well you get the idea.
Thanks to Julian Assange and WikiLeaks we have an email sent from Teresita Perez, a policy advisor at Google, to former Clinton campaign CEO John Podesta that confirms this is in the works at Facebook.
This email should raise serious concerns about Facebook’s initiative to develop “alternative” financial scores. It should also raise concerns about the potential that officers at Google and Facebook were working in collusion.
Perez’s email referenced Sheryl Sandberg, the Chief Operating Officer at Facebook and a person who had been prominently floated to become Hillary Clinton’s Treasury Secretary. She had previously served as chief of staff to Bill Clinton’s Treasury Secretary, Lawrence Summers.
How Perez would be aware of the developmental projects at Facebook should raise serious questions in Facebook’s boardroom. Corporations spend many millions of dollars every year protecting their secrets from the intellectual theft of their competitors. Even the knowledge that a development project is underway is assiduously kept under wraps.
But, as we found out from the texts that Peter Strzok and Lisa Page exchanged, rabid Clintonistas aren’t concerned about real collusion when their heroine is the beneficiary and the new world order is so close to reality that they can smell it.
The question those defending Facebook and Google’s censorship have to now ask themselves is just how much of their personal secrets they are willing to suffer so that the Marxist Utopia may be realized?
