THE INDIVIDUAL AGAINST THE ODDS

by Kym Robinson, The Libertarian Institute Waking Times There is a genre in fiction that celebrates an individual’s adversity against seemingly impossible odds. Whether this is a person who takes the war to organized crime (Mack Bolan), a secret agent saving the world for their government (James Bond), a wronged loner lost and bullied by the law and the society that rejects them (John Rambo), one who wants something so bad that they will defy social conventions (Velvet Brown), or even a rogue that hides behind a mask and inspires a revolution against tyranny (V), they are in some way inspiring. They are … Continue reading THE INDIVIDUAL AGAINST THE ODDS

FORMER TOP LEVEL FACEBOOK EXECUTIVE CLAIMS ‘150 MEN RULE THE WORLD’ & EVERYONE ELSE IS A ‘PUPPET’

Gavin Nascimento, The Free Thought Project Waking Times “Here’s the thing, there’s about 150 people that rule the world. Anyone that wants to go into politics they’re all f*cken puppets, okay? There are 150 — and they’re all men — that run the world. Period. Fullstop. They control most of the important assets — they control the money flows. And these are not the tech entrepreneurs. Now, they are going to get rolled over, over the next 5-10 years by the people that are really underneath pulling the strings.” — Chamath Palihapitiya, Nov 10, 2017, Stanford Graduate School of Business Some … Continue reading FORMER TOP LEVEL FACEBOOK EXECUTIVE CLAIMS ‘150 MEN RULE THE WORLD’ & EVERYONE ELSE IS A ‘PUPPET’

NORMAL HAS FAILED. BE AS WEIRD AS YOU LIKE.

by Caitlin Johnstone, Guest Waking Times Consumerism is unsustainable. Competition is unsustainable. Imperialism is unsustainable. Our species is standing on the brink of an extinction-level event due to ecosystemic collapse or nuclear war, and it is because of the way that we have lived on this planet up until this point. If we keep moving in this direction we will go the way of the dinosaur in the not-too distant future and take most terrestrial life with us. Maybe even all of it. The imperfect and immature nature of our newly evolved capacity for language and abstract thought, combined with our … Continue reading NORMAL HAS FAILED. BE AS WEIRD AS YOU LIKE.

3 WAYS HUMAN PSYCHOLOGY IS BEING EXPLOITED TO CREATE AN OBEDIENT, SELF-POLICING SOCIETY

by Dylan Charles,  Waking Times Things are changing. Rapidly. So, get used to it, and don’t look back, because as we march into this brave new world together, the pressure and stress of the situation is going to affect people’s mental health and personalities in more dramatic ways. The human psyche is built to withstand only a certain amount of pressure, and in our over-connected world, during a global crisis, the stressful stimuli we’re soaking up in a single day is astronomical. The mind has a few coping mechanisms, like fight or flight, cognitive dissonance, denial, Stockholm syndrome, etc., but in a time like … Continue reading 3 WAYS HUMAN PSYCHOLOGY IS BEING EXPLOITED TO CREATE AN OBEDIENT, SELF-POLICING SOCIETY

The Panopticon Is Already Here

Xi Jinping is using artificial intelligence to enhance his government’s totalitarian control—and he’s exporting this technology to regimes around the globe. by Ross Andersen Northwest of beijing’s Forbidden City, outside the Third Ring Road, the Chinese Academy of Sciences has spent seven decades building a campus of national laboratories. Near its center is the Institute of Automation, a sleek silvery-blue building surrounded by camera-studded poles. The institute is a basic research facility. Its computer scientists inquire into artificial intelligence’s fundamental mysteries. Their more practical innovations—iris recognition, cloud-based speech synthesis—are spun off to Chinese tech giants, AI start-ups, and, in some cases, the People’s … Continue reading The Panopticon Is Already Here

THE BRAVE NEW WORLD OF BILL GATES AND BIG TELECOM

by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Guest Waking Times Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. wrote last week about Malibu police’s ticketing Point Dume surfers $1,000 apiece for using the ocean during the quarantine. Was this merely an appalling police judgment at which we will laugh post-quarantine? Or does anyone else feel that this is the first wave of compliance and obedience training for something more permanent? Are powerful state and corporate entities using the current crisis to remove basic rights, and intensify pressures to promote vaccines and surveillance? Does anyone else feel the suffocating darkness of tyranny descending on our nation? And finally, … Continue reading THE BRAVE NEW WORLD OF BILL GATES AND BIG TELECOM

WELCOME TO DYSTOPIA

AFTER 14 YEARS, ‘THE STALINIST ‘TRUMAN SHOW’’ HAS FINALLY ARRIVED

by Jordan Hoffman  Ilya Khrzhanovsky kept the cast and crew of ‘Dau’ trapped inside a painfully real recreation of the Soviet Union while he shot this bizarre tribute to physicist Lev Landau. Now, after all this time, I got to see if it was worth it. Perhaps you saw Philip Seymour Hoffman as a theater director recreating reality on a soundstage in Charlie Kaufman’s Synecdoche, New York and thought, “Ah, yes, an easily understood metaphor, but surely nothing this extravagant could ever happen in real life!” https://www.youtube.com/embed/XIizh6nYnTU?feature=oembed You were wrong. With pre-production starting in 2006, Ilya Khrzhanovsky, a 30-year-old from a family of artistic … Continue reading AFTER 14 YEARS, ‘THE STALINIST ‘TRUMAN SHOW’’ HAS FINALLY ARRIVED

TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTY YEARS OF RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES SHREDDED: WHY I OPPOSE THE LOCKDOWN

by Brandon Turbeville, Guest Waking Times Although it was nearly twenty years ago, I can remember 9/11 like it was yesterday. I remember the shock of hearing about the planes crashing into towers, at first believing it was a tragic accident and quickly learning it to be otherwise. I remember being told that 19 hijackers, part of a fundamentalist plot to destroy America, were behind the attacks and that the mastermind was a man in a cave in Afghanistan named Osama bin Laden. As all of America was glued to their television screens, many rushed out to give blood in an … Continue reading TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTY YEARS OF RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES SHREDDED: WHY I OPPOSE THE LOCKDOWN
