As I’m typing this, we’re on the receiving finish of a top-down battle on every little thing that’s pure, be it pure free expression, pure immunity, or pure means at massive.
Completely different points of at the moment’s weird actuality are linked like items of a puzzle. The fashionable political correctness, for instance, attracts from the identical logical root as vaccinating folks with pure immunity.
How so? Effectively, political correctness exists to make sure that conversational areas are secure areas — and the necessity to make them secure relies on the premise that human beings aren’t able to navigating unregulated conversational areas with out being harmed. Those that are able to doing so ought to act as if they don’t seem to be.
The belief right here is that the pure means to cope with unregulated conversations doesn’t exist, isn’t essential to develop, and mentioning the necessity for it’s merciless. Equally, forcing the well-known medical product on these with pure immunity relies on the premise that synthetic immunity is superior to pure immunity.
Moreover, the robust push for the product, mixed with an assault on anybody who even squeaks about comparable advantages of something pure — be it a wholesome life type or precise pure immunity — presumes that synthetic instruments and mechanisms ought to be used to exchange the pure means of the physique to face as much as pathogens.
And equally, each an expectation of pure immunity in anybody and a refusal to supersede or change one’s pure immunity with a man-made one are framed as merciless. I posit that in logical and business phrases, this battle on the pure world, pure immunity — and pure means at massive — could be defined with readability by way of what is named the “blue ocean technique,” with an infusion of transhumanist ideology of human physique as a [product] platform.
The blue ocean strategy is a enterprise technique that proposes making a model new market out of skinny air and dominating it (a blue ocean) — versus making an attempt to compete in an present market (an ocean pink with blood).
Right here’s the way it applies to pure immunity. A wholesome particular person with a pure immunity is perhaps a contented particular person — however to a 2021 biotech entrepreneur, who views the human physique as a market to dominate, he’s a sheer insult. From the standpoint of that entrepreneur, changing the default pure immunity of the previous tens of millions years with a totally synthetic device that requires a “subscription” all through one’s complete lifetime (see “variants” and “boosters”) is fascinating.
Changing the default pure immunity with a man-made device is a really profitable case of making a model new market (“synthetic immunity market”) out of air. A life-long subscription to synthetic immunity, with an ever-expanding vary of needed “upgrades,” is much more worthwhile than some rookie conventional store promoting nutritional vitamins. Even higher, if synthetic immunity destroys the pure immunity, buyer loyalty is assured. See how elegant?
Considerably equally, the notion that folks can say what they suppose, and everybody formally survives unscarred, doesn’t assist promote censorship or behavioral modification as a way of “defending others.”
If, then again, individuals are formally deemed as missing the power to speak over variations or to course of data and make affordable sense of it — or if folks’s pure means to speak with others in a wholesome method is artificially impaired by way of social distancing, face wearables, and political correctness — a number of new wants are generated proper then and there.
Amongst different issues, it opens new market alternatives for mass scale “psychological well being administration programs” and the behavioral modification instruments, together with behavioral modification software program, generally known as “digital vaccines.” Now, let’s take a look at the opposite facet of it. Let’s take a look at the economic system at massive from the psychological perspective of an especially rich particular person, trillionaire-level rich.
A query: Who’re we, common residents, to the folks with near-unlimited monetary and political energy? Who’re we to those that can make investments into their imaginative and prescient nearly infinitely, and thus form our society and notion?
It looks as if to the folks with essentially the most monetary and political sources, we’re 4 issues: One, we’re clay from which they prefer to mildew their play actuality, creating worlds and wars, experimenting, and testing out hypotheses. Two, we’re the labor, producers of products and providers.
Three, we’re the customers, shopping for stuff that their manufacturing amenities have produced and contributing to the illusion of a functioning market, although they make most of their cash on extraction and hypothesis. And 4, we’re a pure useful resource, like land or water.
Traditionally, in the course of the occasions of feudalism, we have been largely one and two. Then, when the commercial revolution occurred, quantity three was added to the checklist because of the sudden drop in manufacturing prices and a rise within the quantity of stuff that may very well be made on the conveyor.
And now, we’re approaching the phrase the place quantity 4 turns into very fascinating to essentially the most highly effective folks of our planet. Robotics is mighty, fewer individuals are wanted to make issues — and what to do with all of the ineffective eaters?
Effectively, see, in a man-made world, every little thing is feasible, and ineffective eaters aren’t so ineffective in a totally managed setting, so long as they’re seen as knowledge bundles, also referred to as digital twins. So long as they’ve “wants” (as outlined by the folks looking for to revenue), the “enchancment” of their situation could be plugged into numerous influence funding fashions, after which our ineffective eaters they change into very helpful!
Right here is how this financial system works: Let’s say, the “authorities” — in quotes, as a result of within the 4IR mannequin, the federal government may very well be theoretically a software program program — generates foreign money as wanted.
Our ineffective eaters, in fact, get common primary revenue on the situation of doing what they’re instructed. However their Most worthy asset to the economic system is their “wants.” I don’t imply their precise human wants — however “wants,” as outlined by some sort of World Financial Discussion board-like set of formal parameters.
Maybe they’re susceptible to getting contaminated with a virus and wish v-s? Or perhaps their psychological well being doesn’t meet the numerically outlined markers? Or else they may probably be in want of behavioral modification, equivalent to getting handled for meat dependancy, as a result of local weather change? So many markets! So many alternatives! And who then steps in to enhance their situation?
Probably the most nepotistic companies, in fact, by way of public-public partnerships. So first, the “authorities,” working with NGOs, funded by the very companies looking for to revenue, declares an vital public “want.”
Probably the most nepotistic companies then obtain piles of foreign money from the “authorities” to unravel these “wants,” from growing housing tasks to growing patented synthetic meals to creating gene therapies and behavioral modification applications. These issues are then dumped onto the ineffective eaters, no matter what they consider it.
And so the ineffective eaters get stuff “at no cost” however they can not select, and their our bodies are part-owned by companies. Which, if it actually goes this manner, places us again into the Soviet Union with a dystopian twist (and that has nothing to do with isms).
And since human beings aren’t designed to dwell like mechanical troopers or remote-controlled meatbags, and this can result in a really bleak society if we let it occur, we higher get up to the anatomy of how the New Regular actually works, and shortly. The top.
