    Big Brother in Little China, yes…
    Scary stuff indeed.

    Inside and outside China soon will be the day when chips are implanted in all citizens at birth (and perhaps after as well).
    Chips that know all about you, your every move, transaction, history, etc.

    If there is any good news for me it is that I won’t have to bear this
    form of ‘living/watching’ for too long, given my current age. 🙁

    As has been noted, the change is incremental and the masses are by and large oblivious to the signs on the wall and what lies in store for them.

    I’ll damn sure say this…

    The importance and urgency of this Corbett Report – New World Next Week information can not be overstated.

    James is way ahead of the curve in the alternative media.
    What is coming down the pike is gawd-awful, and James has painted a clear irreproachable picture of it.

    This episode of “New World Next Week” video needs to be grouped into a playlist along with others like…
    How Big Oil Conquered the World
    What is Sustainable Development
    Why Big Oil Conquered the World

    We damn well better get the word out.
    And also get other media folks to interview James.

    Getting citizens to snitch, find stolen cars etc…The Circle:

    “…At the next company-wide meeting, Mae says that The Circle believes it can find anyone on the planet in under 20 minutes. She identifies an escaped prisoner. Within 10 minutes, Circlers around the world find the prisoner through social media and SeeChange cameras. Mae suggests transparency can be a force for good.

    Mae says that the program can find anyone. Someone suggests Mercer (Mae’s childhood friend… ”

    But don’t worry, Emma gets over the death of her friend and like the genetic fusion of the French Marianne and The Statue of Liberty with her cell phone as the guiding torch of freedom she leads the masses on the crusade for total transparency! (happy ending)…

    in light of your reporting, much more than a warning, The Circle is quite clearly predictive programming.

    as you can imagine, I’m just shocked! SHOCKED I tell you!

    On a another note, I feel pitifully helpless, horrified, almost paralyzed, in front of this ressucitation of the Phoenix program…will get it into my “curriculum” asap…

    • mkey says:

      I couldn’t endure that movie past some 45 minutes in. When the protagonist woke up and had a number of people watching her waking up it was a bit too much for me so I moved on.

  4. Octium says:

    Even though George Orwell was right about most things I think he got the “boot stamping on a human face — for ever” wrong.

    His book ended too soon, He did not go on to show what happened after Big Brother won.

    The only real advantage humans have over any other animal is their brains. Humans got to where they are now only by using them to innovate and solve problems. A totalitarian or technocratic world does not foster innovation.

    The human race will always be facing new problems, even if it just an asteroid on a collision path with the Earth. The proles are too dumbed down or can’t be bothered to think. The only problems the ruling class know how to solve are the artificial problems they create themselves in order to maintain power.

    Soon after Big Brother wins there will be a total collapse and no faces left for stomping on.

    • manbearpig says:

      Well, perhaps, the true humiliating irony is that humans for the most part won’t be boot-faced into the technocratic paradigm but will run like lemmings, driven by the echo chamber of society and their own vanity, after telegenic fun points and bonuses and tax deductions and discounts smack into the sticky web. In fact, we’re just about there already. Propulsed by the need for pixel existence as proof of their mortal existence…in this world of all seeing anonymity…

      I’d agree that eventually there’ll be no more human faces left to stomp on. Only augmented transhuman ones.

      Seen Blade Runner 2049?

      **Spoiler Alert**

      It’s all about the quote “Miracle” of transhumanism in an oh so poetic sort of way.

      I’m afraid…that…

      Humanity will be lost,

      like tears in rain…

      with only its digital echo as a museological print of its past existence…

      time… to die…


    • weilunion says:

      We are beyond anything George Orwell could have fictionalized or thought in his head.

      The world is now Huxley meets Orwell on the steps of ignorance.

      Big Tech along with Big Pharma, will and are restructuring the landscape of both material reality and our subjective consciousness.

      As to the human brain, it is interesting that the size of the brain has been diminishing for years. In fact, the Great Leap Forward some ten million years ago, as is known to anthropologists, has yet to be explained. It is receding.

      We do know from the marvelous book by Nicholas Carr, The Shallows: How the internet is changing our brains; that reduced cognition is the one of the results of the growth of the internet. Thus, being gamed now is rape in broad daylight with no one watching.

      As to the Phoenix Program. Well, it was lifted to an international scale under Operation Condor, a program by Pinochet to kill all leftists and free thinkers all over the world.

      Ronnie Moffitt and Chilean Ambassador Orlando Letelier were murdered by car bomb in WA D.C. in the 70’s. All part of Operation Condor.

      They never were charged and live in Florida now, the sanctuary city of terrorists.

      Twenty-three Italian citizens were killed over the course of the program, while 1975 saw the failed assassination attempt in Rome, Italy of Bernardo Leighton, a former Chilean official opposed to the Pinochet dictatorship. ”

      According to declassified CIA documents, Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay planned a series of assassination attempts in Western Europe, including in France and Portugal. The CIA informed France and Portugal of the plans, who subsequently warned the countries’ representatives not to go ahead with them.”

      In Brazil, where this has been going on for quite a while, they call it ‘social cleansing’. Yes, murder by contract is now a cleansing and population control program.

      As noted:

      “Condor didn’t just span the borders of South America. It spanned continents, with member countries going to great lengths to hunt down and brazenly murder dissidents in a variety of foreign countries, in some cases killing foreign citizens. At one point, an unnamed Latin American military official even drunkenly threatened to have Congressman and later New York mayor Ed Koch killed over his attempts to block military aid to South American dictatorships.”

      The Cointelpro from the 50’s and 60’s has much in common with the Phoenix Program.

      With this said, do not be surprised if the Phoenix Program, or similar such programs, crop up in the US in the future. Many say they have, with the murder of Michael Hastings, for one.”

      So, Orwell, though prescient, could never have predicted the present situation and the birth of a nightmarish, dystopic future as we see now.

      The question, is can we imagine a better future and work to create it.

    • mkey says:

      I just wanted to add that most technological progress can be attributed to a handful of exemplary humans and their supporting family members. Also those who were skillful enough to redirect resources from the masses to “public” works which enabled creation of infrastructure.
      Humanity at large is a lazy, procrastination prone rabble.

      • Mark44 says:

        Care to define “technological progress” ? 🙂

        • mkey says:

          Progress related to technology? I’m not sure what’s the point of contention. I don’t see we have made much progress unrelated to technology during the past thousands of years so therefore I wanted to further specify the point I was making.

          Not to be inferred I dismiss the progress made through technology, however I would certainly appreciate if we could somehow ditch the prevailing tribal mentality and have the bulk of the people more interested in current societal issues than the hat trick scored during the Sunday match or girth of any of the Kardashian woman’s ass.

          • Mark44 says:

            I guess I was trying to say that technology is not always the answer. Like “Technology is the answer… what was the question?”

            Do you view the atomic bomb, electric toothbrush and leaf blowers (to name just a few) as technological progress?

            • mkey says:

              I don’t think I implied nor expressed directly that I think technology is an answer to anything. It’s a means to an end, requiring responsibility all along the way.

              Further to the point, in several articles’ comments sections I claimed that none of the societal woes we are riddled with currently can be somehow fixed by technology. Those were made in response to people who may have been under the impression crypto currency or gold or whatever other material or quazi material form of money or currency can fix banking. Bankers don’t fear gold for the same reason they don’t fear cryptos; they can control, influence and subvert it. But I digress.

              Even the holy grail of technology as I see it, the LFTR plant, would find the society at large completely unprepared for something that could break the paradigm on such an essential level and introduce next to free electricity for all on the planet.

              To answer your mildly condescending question: both yes and no, depending on the view point.
              The atomic bomb may be used as the ultimate terror weapon by the would be rulers and for them it was certainly a milestone on the technology tree.
              The electric toothbrush is certainly a significant breakthrough for those people, such as myself, who find it easier to brush with it instead of doing it the traditional way. My brushing technique was always sub par plus it appears my mouth is, for some reason, a fertile sandbox for some of the most resilient plaque known to man.
              The leaf blower is part of a lose-lose scenario, because it disrupts the natural process of composting, enabling export of vital nutrients to the dump. Also a perfect example of how a bit of technology wrapped as a product can be abused due to ignorance.

              • Mark44 says:

                It was this part of your statement “most technological progress can be attributed to a handful of exemplary humans” that prompted my question. For progress to some can be thought of as regression to others.

                The fast approaching ‘self-driving’ or autonomous cars may be seen as technological progress or a panacea to many. I certainly don’t see it that way.

                What I’m saying in a round-about way is that whenever a new idea/invention surfaces (call it technological progress if you will) it will become promoted first and foremost if it can be monetized. Of secondary concern is whether or not it benefits society.

                It was not my intent to be even mildly condescending with my question. Just trying to get a better understanding of what you are thinking.

              • mkey says:

                Generally, I wouldn’t say that surfacing of ideas is technological progress. Dogmas, ideologies, realization of needs for enlightment are all based on ideas which have not much to do with technology, but still can not be considered progress on face value alone.

                I agree that technological improvements will be subjected to the current political system and that progress may not turn out to be progress at all. Advancement of technology certainly does not represent advancement of humanity but that is so mainly due to our dogmatic beliefs, at least according to me.

                Every facet of technology can be abused and used for the wrong reasons. A life prolonging drug may become a life draining intoxicant. Energy obtained from splitting atoms can be used to destroy or to empower and enable.

                All of these are just tools which humanity, due to inexistent societal progress, does not know how to apply properly.

                If we don’t categorize technological progress as progress in general, then we really haven’t progressed much if at all during the past few thousand years. Once you consider it, true progress is at hand’s reach. Imagine what would the world look tomorrow if the cops sent by the spanish gov to crack down on those damn freedom seeking domestic terrorists would simply say NO.

              • mkey says:

                Also, my condescension meter can be off sometimes, no offence toward you meant nor implied.

              • manbearpig says:

                MKEY, your point of view about technological progress and especially about the necessity for human societal progress is vaguely echoed in the 7-month old AI talk I linked on the Corbett “Is AI Hype” comments page with Elon Musk, Sam Harris, Denis Hassabis, Kurtzweil, Chalmers and others.

                this is not an ad.

        I have notice this also. -HRS

  5. danmanultra says:

    I’m not really sure what I or anyone else can do about Operation Phoenix. I understand working to live independently of the state, to help improve my health and those around me, but I am unsure of how to stop evil governments from doing evil things. All I feel I can really do is deny their authority in my own life and help others do the same. “write your senator” just does not seem a viable solution at all anymore… if it ever was to begin with.

    • weilunion says:

      Well, from my perspective the answer, and I know James will probably not agree, is to organize against global capitalism. This is the problem.

      We are at a stage now in the evolution of transnational capitalism where we either change the system globally, or it will kill us.

      Individually you can do nothing; only in harmony and struggle with others does one have the ability to change the world.

      We live behind enemy lines now; life has become a tour of duty. Choices need to be made. Current financial capitalism offers nothing but despair.

    • mkey says:

      The only way to truly win this is by raising awareness of a critical amount of people. Without goons the state can’t enforce its will.

      What’s the critical figure? I’d venture about 50%. Not that say 10% wouldn’t be able to score some goals.

      • danmanultra says:

        So our hope is to simply have enough people that refuse to enact the government’s will? Too bad the government is a religious institution at this point, Hard for a lot of people to break faith… even when facts are staring them straight in the face.

    Hey did anyone catch this week’s episode of The Orville? (ep 7).. The story was EXACTLY the same as the China story in this episode of New World Next Week. Spooky coincidence or another warning?

    MAPPED: Catalonia is NOT alone – the regions desperate for independence threatening the EU

    There is quite a bit of separatist sentiment on the old continent.
