Episode 391 – Solutions: Physical Media

12/15/202062 Comments

The Grand Leader of The Technofascist Great Reset, Klaus Schwab, has issued his pronouncement: our digital infrastructure (and even the power grid that enables it) is at great risk of global disruption from cyberattack. And you know what? He’s right. It’s just that the most likely cyberterrorists are the criminals in government and in organizations connected to the World Economic Forum. In any case, we shouldn’t rely on the idea of important information being forever and always available at the click of a button. So what ever can we do to safeguard the books, music and media that we hold dear? What people have always done: keep a physical copy of it. Today James and his guests extol the virtues of physical media in an increasingly digital age.

    This could be used to establish Microsoft, Apple, Google etc., cybersec and intel companies/agencies as good guys in eyes of plebs, because they like fight ‘evil’ hackers and would probably also serve as an exercise for military agencies.

    • hugo.c says:

      The whole “hacker” thing is garbage. Firstly, the term comes from the Free Software movement and means “playful, creative efforts to bend some system to your will”. The “hackers” were trying to get more usage/time on the multi-user timesharing operating systems of their time at their Univerisities by playful and nefarious tricks, not break into other systems. The term for breaking into someone else’s computer is cracking/cracker.

      But, cracking does happen. Thats what military intelligence agencies do, and “cyber” (translate to “computer/network”) criminals.

      The rub is that attribution of who did what in cracking is both difficult and the number of people with the expertise to do it is extremely limited. Thus, it creates the perfect opportunity for false flag ops, as JC has recently noted. Indeed, we’ve had a clear case recently. The whole Russiagate thing. Complete fabrication.

      The recently released (May?), after 2.5 years of suppression by the relevant head of some congressional committee testimony, by Shaun Henry, head of Crowdstrike which was the company hired by the US Democratic political party to investigate their server infrastructure, showed two things:

      1) There was no evidence of exfiltration (any data being copied from the infrastructure to elsewhere) and

      2) he said there were signs of local malware (viruses etc.) with common characteristics that had been used by russian military intelligence previously.

      The first point destroys Russiagate, but the second is far more interesting.

      It highlights the potential use by the CIA of the “Marble Framework” published by Wikileaks which got Mike Pompous into a “non-state military intelligence agency” tizz (*). Even if that’s not the case, it also highlights what happens when these competing military intelligence agencies “do their thing”. Not only does country X meet country Y on country Z’s computing infrastructure (in this example X = USA, Y = UK, Z = Belgium), but they also meet other arms of country X’s agencies. Its a mind numbingly complex web of interlocked insanity couched in a technical language that almost no one speaks. And, I say this as a IT/Network professional with 25+ years of experience.

      Do you think that even the good journalists can tease that ball of string apart?

      (*) Think about it. Who wants to oversee the internal communications of the DNC? Russia? Yeah, why not, but if you get caught you’re in serious trouble. The CIA, with the Marble Framework. *uck yeah. Plausible deniability and access to the political winds. Remember, the CIA has had influence of USA media since the 50’s. I’m sure the Russian’s try too, but they are nothing compared to the UK and Israel. So, the CIA has a get out of jail free card. If I was working for them and had license to use that toolset and cover I’d be “At what frequency would you like my reporting?”

    Update to Rocco Galati’s court case in Canada?

    Let me preface and say that I’m grateful for Mr. Galati defending and educating the public on our Charter of Rights.
    My parents are from the same region in Italy, with the exact same morals and working standards. The main difference (I am dismayed) is that my parents were the very poor farmers in Italy that actually loved Benito Mussolini! I have uncles name Benito in his honour.
    No matter what I say, they still appreciated what Benitio brought to their famished village.

    Statement of Claim:

    https://vaccinechoicecanada.com/wp-content/uploads/vcc-statement-of-claim-2020-redacted.pdf

    When I heard of this court case, I kept watch! I use this case and the details to help during the conversations I have with normies who don’t have the entire picture.
    I watched as Rocco’s Galati’s twitter followers grew, happy to see that more were listening.

    It is now December, comments on his twitter feeds have been expressing the same frustration at the lack of information regarding the court case.

    I stumbled on a blog that found some discrepencies with Rocco’s claim:

    https://canucklaw.ca/anti-mask-anti-vaxx-movement-infiltrated-by-grifters-and-subverters/

    No addresses for the defendants??

    Were the Court papers actually even served?

    The author also points out that it is not legal to have an expert witness also as the plantif.
    This blog post seems to suggest that it would be laughed out of court.

    I know that Rocco has done a lot of interviews, but not many that give details or updates to the actual court case.

    I know he has launched a new alternative “truth” media venue. The main stream media is hurting, maybe he wants to fill a void?

    I did notice yesterday that he has added legal templates to purchase from his website in order for people to represent themseleves and try to fight the battle.

    Not discouraging people making money, but let just keep things in check.

    Maybe he’s using his new found fame to launch new businesses instead of actually taking the Government to court?

    Leaving this here so someone will tell me I’m wrong.

    • Lachouette says:

      Wow, that’s very concerning. Im a Canadian and live in both provinces (ON, QC) I’ve been so busy in the USA proceedings since I believe the outcome of winning might give precedent to Canada. Quebec City had a lawyer paid by the people who drop out 1 day before the filing… Rocco took on our case to join with Ontario. Will everything you said, I should start paying attention. Thank you.

  3. zyxzevn says:

    There are some unrestricted libraries in digital format.
    With a lot of educational content.

    https://1lib.nl/

    With example:
    JFK: The CIA, Vietnam, and the Plot to Assassinate John F. Kennedy
    https://b-ok.cc/book/1168253/217a4f

    http://libgen.rs/

  4. Such an important conversation. One of the most frightening things to me is the loss of physical information. Whether it’s books, newspapers, magazines or even physical audio.

    Humans aren’t truly free until they have access to information. If all information were to be digitized, who would the guardians of such information? This question is easily remedied by owning physical information in whatever format. I try to backup as much of my libraries on DVD as I can. Certainly, all of my blog articles and audio are backed up to DVD.

    Remember, the cloud is just someone else’s computer.

    Thanks, James. That was a timely podcast.

  5. scpat says:

    James,
    So you’re telling me your Gates DVD will only be available for a limited time only? Kind of like the McDonalds Shamrock Shake?!? I better get one quick!

    Haha I kid, I kid, but your previous podcast came to mind as soon as you said that. But seriously, I will be purchasing a copy as it is valuable information to share with others.

  6. hugo.c says:

    The whole HathiTrust thing is a nightmare, and quiet strange. It was the librarians who protested the loudest at the “business records” provision of the un-PATRIOT Act which would later be used to justify the illegal surveillance programs by exposed by journalists using materials provided by Snowden.

    But, here is the golden question about your media:

    > Will it work if you don’t have an internet connection?

    They key point here is that if it does, you can peruse it in private. If not, you cannot, unless you can audit the code of the software that is “playing” it and those people are rare.

    The last bastion of private media is your brain, and they’re trying to get control of that too. : (

  7. hugo.c says:

    Apart from actually using the mechanisms of HTTP to its potential (linking source material), one of the things I love most about JC’s documentaries is that he publishes the TEXT. Whilst this gets massive credibility for supporting the deaf, it also does something else.

    It creates an official version. So, if someone fiddles with his work and publishes that (although faking his voice would be hard, you could easily just remove things) we can know that it is a derivative/altered work.

    Toodle-loo!

  8. minnie says:

    This news about the Hathi Trust makes my blood BOIL! I stumbled across them in 2019, after I found a periodical from 1877 on my mum’s bookshelf. I started reading it, got hooked, but I didn’t have all the chapters. I was very happy to find all the chapters on the Hathi Trust website – all except the last chapter. Eventually I found that the National Library of Scotland had a copy of the original. I was able to read it in the library, and then I took away a copy. I was even thinking about donating it to the Hathi Trust, to complete their collection!

    As far as I know, ordinary folks like me can still visit libraries in the UK, but I’ve been put off because of the insistence on masks and track and trace.

    I’ve noticed that things are being taken into copyright that have no business to be in copyright, eg photos taken by a man who died 150 years ago. I brought this to the attention of the Digital Rights Organisation a few years ago. They seemed really interested at first, but then they stopped replying to my correspondence.

    I’m very impressed with James Evan Pilato’s collection. I’m also fanatical about keeping original books and even tapes, and when clearing out my late mother’s flat this year, I had to keep some of my stores secret from the rest of the family, who were calling me a hoarder and asking me why I needed to keep so many books when I could just buy new ones on Amazon (which I boycott these days anyway). I protested that I’m actually a historian and to some extent an archivist, and thankfully they respected that.

    It’s fashionable these days to be “minimalist” and it’s in keeping with the “tiny house” phenomenon and “you will own nothing”. I’m building my own house, and it will have a special store room for my archives. I also digitise some of them, to be kept offline.

    It’s important for people to keep original copies, and I’m so glad that James is stressing the importance of this. But ultimately, these documents belong to the public and governments should be reminded that we have a right to have access to them.

  9. SuperMom Belle says:

    I’m suddenly ‘unashamed’ that I’m such a “packrat.” (Now, if I could just convince my family to see me a “collector”)
    BTW: The Brady Bunch S1 E13 has been memory holed. The Brady family has a chalk board with all kids names (& even the dog’s) where they check off all the [now-described as] “deadly diseases” for which there exists liability-free vaccines – that were once seen as “rites of passages.” Made by CBS & viewable on Hulu, it skips right over 13, episode 12 to episode 14 with NO mention nor explanation to what it was or why it’s not there.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      I understand the packrat syndrome. I got it too, as did my Mother.

      However, at this age and with each decade, less and less living space, I have been culling the stuff.
      I’d rather delegate it out now, than have it eventually end up trashed or at my own estate sale.

      Ironically, about 2 or three weeks ago, I started making plans to send James Evan Pilato some collectibles that I have in storage.
      Then, coincidently, today, I watched this episode.

      ~~~
      SuperMom Belle,
      Thanks for the brief about The Brady Bunch.

    • manbearpig says:

      Strangely, I vaguely remember that episode, with Alice cheerfully checking the chicken pox off the board… What an innocuous thing to censor… about as innocuous as getting the chicken pox or the flu… strange friggin’ world we’re in now… censoring the Brady Bunch for heaven’s sakes!! seems so incongruous somehow…

  10. UseLogic says:

    Common sense would indicate that to eliminate the threat of a hack, disconnect vulnerable systems from the public internet.

    Why must a power plant be connected to the Internet? Why must the back office of a bank be Internet connected?

    The solution is to isolate critical systems and use a proxy to gain access to them from the public side, if at all necessary.

    Example: You want your bank balance. You hit your bank’s public Internet site and make a request. That request then sends an encrypted query to the non public side to get the answer. That answer is returned to you.

    The isolated side is only willing to answer specific queries. A firewall protects that isolated side from any and all public access; only specific machines are allowed to send it queries.

    This isn’t rocket science.

    BTW – I’m a professional software developer / white hat hacker. The reason this is a problem is because these systems are purposely exposed due to that being the easiest and cheapest way to conduct business.

    • Duck says:

      ‘…Why must a power plant be connected to the Internet? Why must the back office of a bank be Internet connected?..”

      Partially laziness, it makes some things easier to do and is cheaper then making your own dedicated phone or network system
      I ‘read somewhere’ that the British railway has the biggest PRIVATE phone system in the world for a long time, all on (expensive) copper wire.

      I’m informed you too can wander around the internet of things
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDkg1zz6xlw if your interested and that they even have remote controlled crematorium ovens 🙁 WHY ?????

      • vadoum says:

        “WHY?”
        secondly because people can be idiots.

        but firstly,
        because all of the digitizing of our interests (the lot) and the precious life moments that it consumes (see humans glued to screens) is, I think, about birthing an AI.

        Sure the random high speed access to info is helping to expose the good and bad news, especially the human vulnerability and obsession with deception: so many are easily deceived, or worse, become addicted to one’s ability to deceive others.

        I think the big digital picture is a compounding of billions of users patterns that will then be the basis of a mechanistic dead end. The human race, which has always been , the first one to the egg wins, will then become last one left better pull the plug (as we were preemptively told by Kubrick’s space odessy 2001).

  11. thomas.j says:

    I have a Kindle e-reader and I occasionally notice there is an update to one of my books. If it works as intended its a great idea (author updates, typos, and more relevant information). But I know Amazon likes to ban (“1984” was mention and there is also the “Vaxxed” documentary on Amazon Prime).

    As for digital content I use a Synology NAS which I highly recommend:

    https://www.synology.com/

    The Diskstation DS220+ model is a very nice beginner model. Their small models are made with the same level of detail as their big corporate models.

    For print books take a look at abebooks.com. This is second hand books and they have a lot of interesting books.

    • Duck says:

      “…I have a Kindle e-reader ,,,”

      I have one of those epaper things too… but if you EVER connect it to the internet your letting an outside company know what page of what book your reading… not even the Gestapo could do that.

      Mine has never been connected to anything but a PC for just that reason, I just load it with books from there

  12. lekp says:

    When I tap on “Anarchy by Richard T. Ely”, it takes me to HathiTrust.

  13. Laura K. says:

    Literally lisening to this while burning “Who is Bill Gates” with german subs. 😀
    Took my a while to get it right but now I am just making one after another. 100 empty DVDs cost only 19 Euros.
    I put two dark stripes (with Windows Movie Maker – the irony lol.) at the bottom of the screen and then burn the subtitles on top.
    Then I noticed that it was quite impractical in one long bit – and cut it in it`s four chapters.
    If anyone wants it or needs help doing it for another language – I am willing to send it (via wetransfer.com for example)or do the whole process for someone if they are committed on burning a lot of them…?

  14. PaulDiggsJazz says:

    James, a potential work around to shipping DVDs:

    Have you ever considered having a download link for the iso disk images? Let us buy the DVD, but download it. We burn it to a DVD at home. Saves you the work of burning hundreds of DVDs and all the postage.

    Also thumb drives are now so cheap and large. I’d love to buy a thumbdrive with all your mp3, mp4 archives for myself or as a mirror.

    Final thought, how do I find the IPFS link to your articles and videos?

  15. mnunn says:

    Who finances the Hahti Trust? Would we be surprised if it was the Gates Foundation?

  16. urthp says:

    The university library in my town circa 1970: Looking for the “Proceedings of the German Anthropological Society” (no English edition of course). Noticed that all the volumes between 1933 & 1945 were missing from the series. What happened? All locked up in the basement of the library. Ha ha ha. Big brother knows best.

    • redrose says:

      Wow! That is wrong. I worked at a public library system for twenty four years. The last eight years were under a different director. Slowly privacy rights of patrons were eroded and censorship increased. I don’t know if others complained, but I ended up getting demoted….Altho that wasn’t only thing I could’ve been demoted for, I think it played a part….

  17. Fact Checker says:

    So because we forced you to rely 100% on DigiTech, we now must force you to accept our “Cyber-Security” program, because this reliance is an even bigger danger than the Megadeath Virus of Doom!

    They’ve changed their M.O. from

    PROBLEM > REACTION > SOLUTION

    to

    PROBLEM > BIGGER PROBLEM > BIGGER PROBLEM > BIGGER PROBLEM > BIGGER PROBLEM > BIGGER PROBLEM > DELIBERATE APOCALYPSE

  18. vadoum says:

    phoneticly try: Ha-tee it means elephant in hindi

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      I guess this Thread revolves around “talking about the Elephant in the room”.
      😉 – Okay…my jokes get too corny at times.

  19. HomeRemedySupply says:

    I thoroughly enjoyed Corbett’s story approach with Episode 391 – Solutions: Physical Media.
    Corbett had other media “guests” help to tell the story.
    This was a top grade way to do it, and it keeps the audience interest high.
    It also tips a hat to these other media folks.

    I was re-watching parts of the Who is Bill Gates? series the other week.
    Man Alive! This is a spot-on dissemination piece for newbies!
    I can’t emphasize it enough. This continues to be a wonderful piece to spread around.

  20. Mal says:

    Here’s a couple of suggestions:

    I often take “hard-copies” of important stuff but rarely actually print it out as paper is expensive, so I “hard copy” to an external USB drive like so:

    EMAILS: using yahoo mail (sorry) I hit the print icon from an open email and specify that I want to print to a PDF then SAVE. Voila! Also convenient if you want to attach an email to another email.

    WEB PAGES: using Vivaldi (that’s more like it) the formatting goes a bit nuts if you just try to “print” so I find it useful to convert to text first. Usually you have a little icon in the address bar like three or four horizontal lines – hit that and your page is now being viewed as text. Now you can right click and select “print”. As with emails above specify that you want to print to a PDF. Then SAVE.

    You can always get a paper copy later….

    While I’m here if you have LINUX (I have Mint) then “Video Downloader” is super cool. It downloads just about any video via a non-nonsense GUI…. Download to a USB and you’re set!

    • hugo.c says:

      Yo Mal!

      I love people who offer their methods to others. But I’m from the generation who said green terminals were horrible and we went amber! So, command-line for me.

      I assume that your Video Downloader GUI is based on youtube-dl and there is a wonderful story about them from about 6 weeks ago. The US Recording Industry of “America” Association (RIAA) sent a “cease and desist” letter to github.com which hosted the code for youtube-dl. It said “they are xxxx’ing copyright and so you must take their code down”. Github, recently purchased by Micro$oft, went aaah shit and did so. But, their CEO did some outreach via IRC to the developers saying “we sorta had to do this, but we’d like to help”. In the end it was the Electronic Frontier Foundation that sent a “just submit this to the judge” letter to Github which did an absolute bitch slap to the RIAA’s legal rubbish. End result; Github and youtube-dl developers happy and code back up. Good job EFF.

      But, the fun part is what happened in the middle. Of course, lots of “open sourcey” people got pissed, but some did one of the most beautiful tech take downs I’ve seen in years. Now, Github had failed to fix a bug in their repository update process, which allowed people to submit “pull requests” which were theoretically not allowed.

      So, what did said “open sourcey” hackers do? They submitted pull requests to Github’s DMCA (the law that RIAA was using) repository with the entire youtube-dl code. Man, I was laughing my arse off.

      As for LINUX (its called GNU/Linux) Mint is great, also Ubuntu. I use Fedora, and if you want to be a purist, use Debian (which is the basis for both Mint and Ubuntu).

      Best of luck to you and all in conquering your digital challenges and SAVE the STUFF!

      • Mal says:

        Howdy Hugo, yep I used to use youtube-dl until it stopped working. (Talking Linux Mint) went to the “software manager” and found “Video Downloader (Flathub … whatever that means)” and installed it. Tried it for multiple video platforms. Cheers Mal

  21. Alchemist says:

    I gave my local library a piece of my mind about this a few months ago when I found a huge graphic on their home page showing support for BLM, but not a word about reopening the library. Maybe it’s time I reach out to them again.

    This is such an important issue, but hardly anyone seems to notice or care; esp since there are so many more pressing issues that need our immediate attention. While this waits on the sidelines, we could lose the library forever.

    We should all be concerned that there is no way to anonymously read anything or do internet searches anymore. It’s nearly impossible to retain new information without leaving an electronic trail of evidence. Plus, as mentioned, it would be extremely easy for anyone to revise or delete entire books if we don’t have access to physical media.

    Put your important books in a safe and bury it deep. It took thousands of years to retain as much knowledge as we have today. Let’s do everything we can to keep it protected.

    • cu.h.j says:

      I noticed this too at my local library. When I went in to vote I noticed the book were taped off. Books might cause cooties! It was scary.

  22. catie says:

    My own fault: I am so unprepared for any energy grid terror attack by the Globalists!!

    Even though we may lose our energy grid for an unspecified time frame, also download as much informational videos as you can onto external drives; So much information these people want to destroy.

    I always knew this day would come and I would be alive to see it, but it’s still shocking.

    Ice Age Farmer (Christian) mentions BLACKROCK…

    December 15, 2020 – OILPRICE.COM by Alex Kimani
    Big Oil Slammed With A $7 Trillion Reality Check
    https://oilprice.com/Energy/Energy-General/Big-Oil-Slammed-With-A-7-Trillion-Reality-Check.html

    EXCERPTS
    About a year ago, the world’s largest asset manager BlackRock Inc. (NYSE:BLK) declared its intention to increase its ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) investments more than tenfold from $90 billion to a trillion dollars in the space of a decade. Few took the investment firm seriously, given its spotty track record on climate action in the past.

    But just in case investors thought BlackRock was bluffing as usual, the company recently issued a chilling update on its approach to engaging with companies, essentially saying it will abandon its traditional modus operandi of siding with boards of directors at companies but will instead start favoring shareholder resolutions.

    Blackrock manages $7 trillion in global funds, making it the world’s largest asset manager…

    …In the past week, U.S. oil giant Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE:XOM) was targeted by angry activist investors as well as CalSTRS (California State Teachers’ Retirement System), one of the country’s s largest pension funds.
    But it did not stop there.

    New York State’s $226 billion pension fund recently announced plans to divest from oil and gas stocks in the coming years…

    …Last week, Ceres announced a consortium of investors managing $9 trillion in assets that has fully committed to investing along with net-zero carbon goals.

    ESG Momentum
    Indeed, there’s no denying that ESG investments are rapidly gaining momentum with investors actively demanding environmentally and socially responsible choices…

    …Sustainable investing assets now total $17.1 trillion. That’s up 42% just from 2018…

    …Blackrock itself says its clients will double their ESG assets in just five years.

    In fact, money managers say climate change is their No. 1 concern and the “leading criteria” determining where they put their money to work…

    …On its part, BlackRock has been outstanding, with the firm now managing more than $7 trillion while the stock has gained nearly 40% YTD.

    And this isn’t about morals or ethics. It’s about the free market. Sustainable stocks are outperforming everything else because they are the new safe haven–one that makes money while de-risking from the looming climate threat.

  25. weilunion says:

    Perception management is the game. The means change historically.
    If one is a control freak, wants power, money or has all of it, he asks him or herself how can I mantainain control? And we are talking about control of the world so the question is important.

    Erasing memory is obviously the idea.

    Psy-ops of course due the trick.

    But if I had control of the world or a little short, the best way would be to erase from history the struggle between capital and labor.

    Cause if I have capital, I want it to grow and grow fast. And then I want to get rid of competition for it is messy. Better to have monopolies.

    I do not want people to know about the Wobblies or the anarchists, the socialists or the communists for they might get collectivist ideas.

    Yes, and I would want to assure that no voluntary association among workers, or citizens could exist to challenge my power.

    Can’t have damned slaves, peons or workers (all hierarchical terms of the class society) organizing physically or online. No meetups.

    Go digital, say it is good for convenience and savings while spending more time with dysfunctional families watching TV or playing with the computer, they will buy it.

    Or will they?

    Soon they will ask us to eat digital grown food and lead digitally correct lives, etc. We know this.

    Who is they ‘they’?

    Global and national capitalists, plutocrats, oligarchs and landed gentry.

    They have the chips. We have to wait to see if they strike first.

    You cannot negotiate with ‘capital’. It wants to accumulate and if this means lower wages or slavery then so be it.

    But control over capital is what is important.

    This is the Great Capitalist Reset.

    To assure the privatization of every part of the world and the ownership by who else, the owning class; the capitalist class.

    Books. I own thousands and only read books, never online.

    I am old school and believe that the actual physical holding of the book, the stale smells of libraries, enchant me but I am old.

    James is right. How will we tell our children of the death of the Guttenberg press and the rise of cyber technological fascism?

    The Great Book Burning now being done under the auspices of modernity.
    But the fight, be it over digitalization or the Great Capitalist Reset is the same: a small group of individuals have all the coconuts and you have none. It is called the class struggle.

    • Duck says:

      The “…Great Capitalist Reset..” is being sold as socialism

      They are going to sell it using phrases like “..the class struggle…” Or its more modern form “inclusiveness’ and ‘fairness’ and ‘equity’.
      Its not a class struggle, its a values struggle. Looking at the world in pure material terms is why pure capitalism and socialism are both destructive.

      Even the would be masters of society know that which is why they want to create a fake religion to sooth the masses

      • weilunion says:

        I disagree. It is being sold and will be sold as identity politics. Capitalists hardly ever use the word ‘class’, unless among themselves. You are not supposed to know or talk about class; it is seditious and a no, no outside ruling circles.

        And this can be shown by your correct observation that words like ‘inclusiveness’ ‘fairness’ and ‘equity’ will be used. This obfuscates the class nature of the economic system while using pretty words to assure oppression.

        Values arise historically. Used to be that it was moral to own slaves. Used to be it was moral to burn people alive for their beliefs. So morals are historically entwined with economics, history and social life.

        The morals of modern capitalism are predatory profit. Abandonment, isolation, alienation, arrogance, intellectual cowardice, egocentric thinking, no passion for investigation, intellectual hypocrisy, intellectual cowardiceness, lack of fairminded thinking, lack of peseverance, lack of confidence in reasoning and many more values.

        But I am talking about the vaues of critical thinking and there lack thereof.

        If one is talking about absolute values, that they exist, then they are absolutists and history,class, economics and social forces have no bearing.

        I am not an absolutist and believe very strongly that our values come from the systems we live in and the struggles weage for freedom.

        That our subjectivity is married dialectically to the material conditions within which we find ourselves. And thus the struggle to change the society is at once the struggle to think critically.

        Bertolt Brecht had a great story, put into a small animation, about this:

    Aaron Ruso, NY gold and silver trader, manager of Bette Midler, producer of “The Rose” and “Trading Places”, friends with a Rockeller (trying to capture him into NWO) and not as well know for producing this documentary, where he exposing the shenanigans of the banksters.

    Rockefeller told Aaron Ruso back then about chip implant, the banksters starting CFR, UN which spawned WHO, etc
    and how they were going to eliminate cash and the only way you could function in the one global NWO

    My suspicion about the Dr Goldfinger personality known as Schwab: he’s done badly on purpose. In so many NWO ops, there is an element of mockery combined with testing of thresholds. Are we conditioned enough yet? Do we need a few more years of mainstream news, Netflix etc? Or are we ready right now?

    I mean, if they take down the grid we might start thinking, start talking to one another by candlelight. Maybe they can leave cell phone reception so we get just the right “news” about the aliens or the Russians or Chy-nah. But if they go Full Blackout they’ll have to be sure that most thinking has stopped and that we’ll be willing to spend the downtime checking for Novichok on the doorknobs or bat droppings in the instant noodles. Limiting media? It’s a risk!

    About media: I reckon we don’t need to go retro or quaint, though there’s nothing wrong with a bit of that. I’m a tech dunce, but it didn’t take long to work out that any old Kobo reader can be loaded up with thousands of epubs without touch of internet.

    Hundreds of thousands of epubs, pdfs etc can be loaded on to a removable drive, an old computer or all sorts of cards, thumb drives. Devices and files need never be connected to the internet. In the case of blackout, an old laptop, preferably with Linux, can be used to transfer files from storage devices to readers and players. I’m often shocked by how even tech-wise people buy into systems like Apple and Amazon just to have ebooks or store some music. Hell, I won’t be alive long enough to read all my ebooks or hear all my podcasts and lecture series. I’ve even got too many videos and docos.

    As for electricity, I have a power pack which can give me lights and charging of devices for weeks, and which can be hooked up to solar panels for years of charging.

    There’s a catch. If anyone wants any of my stuff, they have to come here (or maybe swim right now) and load files on to their own storage. Help yourself, but…no Macs, no cloud, no internet!

    Just a thought.

    What if the real conspiracy is deterring people from a true form of egalitarian world governance?

    Listening to David Rothkopf(I haven’t read Superclass, yet) he seems to think that’s the greatest fear these parasites have. Is real international regulation not the way to go?

    Of course it would be rigged when left in the hands of the parasites. By the sounds of what’s on the way with all this “NEW BRETTON WOODS MOMENT.” That’s what we will have to deal with quite soon, no?

    Anyway, I’ve started putting together a book collection for all the reasons brought up here. I also love to spin some wax as well. Nothing like it.

    Usually buy a digital book but last night changed: only physical books for me now going forward. I knew this intuitively but your report gave me the push to be serious about the threat. Thank you! Must build a bigger bookshelf.

    For a perfect visual representation of what a future without physical media looks like, go to the 35:55 mark of the movie Rollerball (1975). Link below;

    As someone from the Indian subcontinent, I just wanted to point out the following.
    Hathi is the Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi (and many other subcontunent languages) word for elephant.

    It is pronounced “Ha-Thee” (‘thee’ part sounds like the beginning of the words “thin” and thick”)

  32. beaudarc says:

    Books are a real pain in the ass if you move about much. A garbage bag full of clothes weighs 5 pounds; a box of books weighs 50. Nonetheless the experience of reading written text in a book is entirely different, and preferable, to reading a computer screen. There is just something experientially and cognitively different and superior to reading written text on paper rather than on a computer screen.

    I am so appreciative of James for all he does. A year ago I bought his entire archive on DVD media and discovered that most of the DVDs were corrupted. I’ve tried them in many Macs of various vintages and a number of DVD drives, both external and internal. James is a hard working dude so I just considered the archive expense a donation to the cause. However, I would recommend that anyone in the community who has purchased physical media check to be sure it actually is readable. I’ve encouraged James to offer a thumb drive alternate to DVDs… Seems to me way cheaper in time and materials than burning DVDs. A metal lined envelope might prevent accidental or deliberate erasure of thumb drives in transit. Can a DVD be corrupted during shipping? Maybe by heat? https://www.clir.org/pubs/reports/pub121/sec5/ Down the road, I wonder if a crypto protocol like filecoin might offer verifiable custody for digitized media?

    This was a great show that I arrived at too late to be able to expect that I will have much conversation about it with fellow CR members, but oh well. I love books and, due to poverty, I’ve lost more than I can count. I’ve moved from ‘room’ to room to room, a lot, over the years. Some of those rooms have been so micro, I’ve literally had to jettison boxes of personal possessions, including books. There’s a page on my blog that looks at all of (sort of) the books that I’ve read. I thought that that would be interesting to do and even, for some, helpful, as I also provided nuggets/quotes from each book. There’s over a hundred but that’s probably half of the books I’ve read due to the above described situation. I’ve right now got a girl (if she’ll get off her butt and do it) looking for books for me via ebay, which I seem to get ripped off on and can’t completely figure out.

    Covid 1984 has turned my world, and ‘the’ world, upside down. My very regular book-reading has all but stopped. I managed to finish Robert Jastrow’s awful, pro transhumanism book, “The Enchanted Loom – Mind In The Universe” and took Eva Golinger’s book, “The Chavez Code” to work in order to resume my reading, but have been to spent to turn to it. Instead, I drink coffee and play solitaire at work. (I don’t work hard and nor do I get paid hard. Trust me.)

    I think the last book I listed in my ‘Books That I’ve Read’ page was by Peter Phillips. It’s titled “Giants – The Global Power Elite,” so I was amused when, after James turned to his friend Richard Grove (who I was thinking of recently, oddly) to talk about books and get his thoughts on the subject of physical media vs digital, it was mentioned by James that Richard had impressed him when he had pulled out a book one time to get a quote about the superclass from David Rothcopf. Peter Phillips mentions (on page 27) Rothcopf as well, explaining that that superclass (people like Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates and all the rich and powerful people) resides within the transnational capitalist class. I was curious and looked up David Rothcopf and was… horrified. I forget the details, but if Rothcopf’s quote had not been in Peter’s book and all I knew was what his background was, I wouldn’t (for no reason) have had any use for him. That’s so often how it goes. The people who give us insights we need and use are, unnervingly, the people in the ememy’s camp.

    I took away a lot from Peter’s book, including labels like ‘transnational capitalist class’ and ‘superclass’ and, as I always do when I learn, started using them. But alas, I must have sounded like a faker or something because no one responded. But who reads books?

  35. mik says:

    To get the whole picture we must talk also about intrinsic flaw of the books. I wouldn’t be aware of it if a friend, professional book restorer, didn’t explain me the problem.

    With the explosion of book printing they started to use paper made of wood. Such a paper has a problem that it degrades with time and it ends looking like old newspaper, the shape you are probably familiar with. It has no flexibility, it cracks. And all the books will look the same with time. Yes, some are printed on better paper, still, it is just a matter of time, because it’s basically a chemistry problem. With newspaper paper, you probably know, the problem occurs in a span of few decades, with books it’s slower, centuries, certainly not millennia.

    It would be possible to prevent degradation, but the main problem is too many books and the process to prevent degradation is too complex. Therefore digitization is the only long term solution. Digitally stored information can be refreshed, for example burning another copy of DVD before it degrades, yes, they are degrading too. Digitally stored information can additionally be protected by using error correcting procedures (CRCC), something that is not possible in analog format.

    People could name one thing they did to try to change things and what the effect was. We could expand in-person organizing to strategize in our local area and list what our responses were to our interventions and build from there, see what works what doesn’t.

    Moving from thinking and research into doing the experiment. It’s a whole different experience. And it can be fun. We must try because this is our evolutionary challenge, do or die.

  37. maasb says:

    what i am REALLY wondering about is this: With all these announcements like the Klaus Schwab one at the WEF, and add to this things like event 201, WHO are they actually addressing? Normal people dont watch this stuff, the Elite itself doesnt need to get a briefing on this. Is it for their minions, say people who are important to them working in certain industries but are not high enough in the ladder to know whats really going on? I dont quite understand

  38. maasb says:

    As i finished the episode now and looked saw the first youtube comment talking about Klaus Schwab seeming like a parody of every american movie villain ever, which i agree with, I want to go even further and make up and actualy conspiracy theory: I think there is a very good chance that this is just an act. This whole thing how he is talking in that thick german accent and dressing like the head of the empire in star wars. Its just too unreal. And so what if it is intended to be picked up by truth seekers the way we do now? What if they fake goes even beyond the false flag attacks, corona deception etc? What if an even bigger game is being played where certain informations are not only fed to the common people who have no idea what is going on, but also to the truth seekers? I have no answer to this i just want to put this out there as i have always on occasion wondered about this throughout the years….
