Interview 1637 – James Corbett on Declare Your Independence

05/09/202145 Comments

James Corbett joins Ernest Hancock for his weekly appearance on Declare Your Independence. This week they discuss: the Quigley formula, 6G, the information-industrial complex, Cody Wilson, the fourth turning, “neuro-rights” and salt marches.

*PLEASE NOTE: I said Cecil “B.” Rhodes a couple of times here. Was I thinking of Cecil B. DeMille? In any event, it’s of course Cecil John Rhodes.

    Dr Mercola Website Articles on Covid Health Expunged
    …and…
    Old West Ramrod, Ernie Hancock & IPFS

    Tune in at around 20:45 minute mark
    Someone asks, “Ernie, did you have permission to do that?”
    Ernie responds, “No. No we didn’t.”
    Someone then balks with, But…but they might…but what about…”
    Ernie, “I don’t give a crap…”

    I love this perspective.
    I raise my glass to it all, toasting Flippant Insouciance to Authorities.

    flippant – DEFINITION – not showing a serious or respectful attitude; somewhat ‘playful’ lack of seriousness
    insouciance – DEFINITION – lighthearted unconcern, disregard (with a grin), nonchalance

      Where can you download a hard copy of these articles? It’s very useful information.

      I bought some Ivermectin just in case, but it’s for horses so have to adjust the dose incase I needed it (doubt I will, but just in case).

      One of my neighbors used Ivermectin when she got Covid. She said it worked. She was older in her 60s without co-morbidities.

    Great stuff, subbing to the RSS now

    Starting at the 24:50 minute mark, some very important points are underscored by James Corbett.

    Corbett mentions that some folks say, “Oh James, you’re just talk, talk, talk. When are you going to do something?”
    I call Bullshit.
    Those people don’t know squat.

    LOOK AT THIS!
    Santa Claus Brings 9/11 Truth to Japan
    (7 minutes)
    https://odysee.com/@corbettreport:0/santa-claus-brings-9-11-truth-to-japan:2

    When did the person making such an evaluative statement about lack of activism actually go out solo on a cold windy day and disseminate flyers?
    James wasn’t with a group. He did it solo. There are very few folks who can stomach doing a one person activism gig.

    Hell, a year or two back, James had been out helping folks recover from a flooded house in Japan. That’s nasty, hot, humid work.

    Corbett has paid his dues. He only has a limited number of hours per day.

    People who strain at criticalness need to get real.
    Corbett has a wife and two young kids, plus family members and friends, plus an email inbox which must require 5 servers everyday when it fills up. Corbett has a lot on his plate, seven days a week.
    I like the hat that he wears. He wears it extremely well.

    • TruthSeeker says:

      Home Remedy,
      I felt a need to respond to those remarks by James about some people saying that he doesn’t actually do anything, when in fact what he does with his well researched Documentaries is about the most important thing anybody can do.
      Masses of People have been led astray time and time again throughout history, yet once in a while someone manages to get the People thinking Philosophically, and as a result, they don’t follow the false prophet.
      If the best of Corbett Report were to replace CBS’s “60 Minutes” we wouldn’t have a Scamdemic because People would know the truth.

    I love it guys! But something along these lines, you all should check out my website. Proclaimemancipation.com I’m working on it everyday and post a daily blog, I just want to inform people as much as possible on stuff that gets censored from social media and MSM. Love you guys!

    I’m halfway through the interview. A very good and lively interaction. My son lives in Phoenix. The mayor of Phoenix is a tyrant. She is just plain awful. 100F in Phoenix yesterday. Will finish watching tonight. Thanks to James and Ernest. It amazes me that James Corbett has enough time in the day for family, career, and his website.

  7. DogStar says:

    I agree with the idea raised that finding a community where one can both contribute and count upon others’ support is key.

    Due to the covid fallout I lost my job, had to move and have been more isolated than most during the past winter; since I don’t already have a network in place currently, in a certain way it should give me the psychological freedom to easily move on to greener pastures, except now the covid agenda has placed restrictions on any such freedom because I will not comply with the vaccination/vaccine passport. I so feel for those who have been pressured to take the jab because I know that some have done so in order to keep their jobs or simply to get the big-mouthed, low-level sociopaths off of their backs…

    It’s refreshing to hear that EH doesn’t wear the mask when out and about as for me this is a sign of solidarity for all who refuse to be assimilated. After moving about freely for months without a mask I recently experienced bullying from an employee at a grocery store who publicly and loudly attempted to shame me for not wearing a mask while I was at check-out (and this is a Co-op, with a massive sign out front declaring, ‘Everyone welcome!’) and while I wasn’t cowed at the time, I now find that it did affect me as I am less inclined to go out into the community, even to the places where in the past I have not been confronted for not wearing a mask. There is much violence in all of this, and I’m beyond tired of the insanity.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      DogStar,
      I feel ya.

      MASKS
      Try this line:
      “I’m exempt from wearing a mask. I can’t get Covid and I can’t give it to anyone else. I have T-Cell and B-Cell immunity. My Ig antibody count is out the roof. My blood sample titers look great! So, I am not threat to anyone. I can’t transmit Covid and I can’t get Covid.”

      Ask “Why?” questions if they balk. Then repeat the above line after their justification.

      – Verbal Introversion Tactic – (I don’t like using it, but if I’m grumpy, then I will.)
      Ask questions designed to have the other person look inside their head. ”Why can’t you see this? Why don’t you understand basic facts? Why are you acting this way?”

      The “Why?” questions can be supplemented with evaluations, followed with nuanced, cutting, invalidating remarks disguised as questions. ”You are really uninformed. Don’t you listen to Dr. Fauci and the CDC? Do you ever watch the news? Don’t you know 5th Grade Science?”
      Like I said, I hate utilizing this type of introversion approach.

      The “Introversion Verbal Tactic” may not win the argument, but it certainly will haunt the receiver the rest of the day.

      (I practice my lines at home or when driving just so I don’t get tongue-tied.)

    • TimmyTaes says:

      DogStar; I agree with your position and situation. I also do not want to go out into the community, if there is such a thing.
      It is all about individuals. There is no community. We all exist and act in our own best interests and the “community” is a by product of individuals working for their own self interests.
      There is no “common good”. This is Communism bullshit!
      So what if Tom, Jose, Omar, Trevon, and Yoshi all die from the disease? Less competition for us and more wealth. They should have taken better care of themselves.
      This Kumbaya stuff drives me nuts. No one, but family, has ever helped me out in an altruistic way.
      It’s human nature.

      • DogStar says:

        I appreciate everyone’s feedback! I do feel a kindred spirit of sorts with the few others I run across who also choose not to mask up (being unmasked is a good way to display that one refutes the covid agenda, though it does take extra energy).

        I’ll either have to ‘make do’ with the limited stock available in the stores that don’t hassle me (or consider making period supply runs to my neighboring state which appears to be far more lenient). Regardless, if anyone messes with me again, this time around I can at least keep my spirits high by imagining a pig enjoying itself wrestling in the mud!!

        • mkey says:

          The fact that you are feeling the brunt of this garbage just reflects you character and the enhanced state of awareness, that’s all. To react with anything less than disgust to sickness and depravity would be subhuman.

          Voting with your dollars, or whatever it says on your funny paper, is always the best option, especially when followed by an explicit statement that expresses your determination to defund a specific establishment, but being part of a vast minority (I keep looping back to the 3% rule these days) makes the approach less effective.

          A sustained effort is of paramount importance.

    • DogStar,

      May I also add as one who has never worn a mask that I lament for you at the cost you have paid.

      As a software developer who has been telecommuting for years, the impact on me has been low.

      However, there are stores, both local and corporate chains, that have had the mandate for their customers, and I simply will not return. This is a vote with my dollars.

      I am also an avid aggressive walker doing about a marathon distance a week. At 65, I am probably healthier than the majority in their 20s.

      I also do that dreaded thing of buying as much of my food as I can from outdoor farmers’ markets that I just happen to walk to. I recommend it.

      It is my hope that you will find that local community that is right for you. The farmers’ market might be a great place to start.

      Also, I do have a valid medical excuse. I am sentient.

      • mkey says:

        Oh, you are one of those people who suffer from CSS*, ehi?

        *common sense syndrome

      • DogStar says:

        Excellent! The truth is that we each know our medical needs far more than anyone else ever could, so an individual can validly invoke the medical exemption for himself/herself… on the grounds that we as humans have a powerful need to be free. (Yes, someone here recently invoked Whedon’s Firefly series – I wish that I could watch the movie ‘Serenity’ again for the first time! Definitely has similarities to our current nightmarish quagmire.)

      • yelv says:

        “I am sentient” The perfect riposte! Wonderful.

  9. NotSure says:

    The mask thing has gotten wild. Everyone thinks their being tracked by actual people because everyone’s phones are jammed up I think people are in the process of switching over to different platforms and search engines. I really do feel like a one in a sea of zeros when I go shopping sometimes it does get so difficult to die on that hill every time you go to the store just to get groceries and stuff it’s so lame. I don’t know what the end game is I think what’s gonna have to happen is it’s going to have to be like how Mark dice does it where you have to literally make people feel like they’re doing something traumatic to their children and family and people have different reactions some people react quite hostile over it I’ve heard people rippin Comments like this morning at the Family Dollar they have like a big giant piece of plastic and A really cool guy From in town that I’ve known for a long time double mask plastic thing in front of him and he sitting there complaining about it, and he’s sitting there rattling off that The corporate overlords are telling them that he can get a $6500 fine and up to three years in jail I’m like bro you are brainwashed… Chris sky is a really good example of someone who I feel like it’s doing it right but there’s got to be a different way than to just Blow up And act completely defiant every time you go in the store LOL it’s a very weird thing…But On the bright side I have had a few people do the pay it forward people get so mad that you’re getting ganged up on… That they flip out and do something really nice like pay for your whole grocery stuff because you can’t find your wallet or things like that I’ve seen it weird stuff happens And people are just trying to figure out a way to calmly revolt I have observed at many places I go during the day.some people blow up and flip out and some people blow up and get really really kill them with kindness style nice. Needless to say I have been hating going to the store I’m up in Maine. Maine is a very odd state. it’s somewhat like Canada where everyone is so nice but everyone is also pretty well-off and then there are the complete opposite people that are just living in a tent this time of year and backpacking in town to charge their phones and go to grocery stores and they’re basically homeless Trying to just blend into society as much as possible which isn’t very hard it’s kind of a hippie situation.from Now until October some of them a lot of people are homeless and hold several jobs up here it’s just a weird state. That’s my rant good job guys I have been getting kind of out of the real deep research because it gets kind of heavy. i’ve been sharing more music trying to appeal to the higher frequencies I guess you could say feels like things are lifting up In a strange way.

    I wish..oh how I wish EH was just a little more articulate. I know what he has to say is both interesting and valuable, but I find it so difficult to access. I usually have to skip these interviews. However, I persisted with this one through to the end and will try watching it again in order to patch in what I missed the first run through.
    EH & JC did get my attention in regards to the Bill & Melinda Gates divorce and possible implications of what this could foretell. Unfortunately the conversation concluded just as I felt it was leading into an interesting discussion. It did at least give me something more to ponder on. I would be interested to know what other speculations are circulating at present.

  11. matthew.l says:

    Just wanted to mention to all the Carol Quigley geeks and prospective geeks, Quigley wrote more then Tragedy & hope and The Anglo-American establishment, the Evolution of Civilizations is a landmark piece of work that is virtually unknown outside the Georgetown elites, many gems in that work especially to the enthusiast of anthropology.

    • bob387 says:

      Matthew.l
      Even though I haven’t read this book (yet), I have a perspective on public institutions based on limited personal experience that I’d like to share or rather, get off my chest.
      Stage 1: their attention is focused on serving the needs of the public.
      Stage 2: to achieve better service, they grow vertically, horizontally and specialize, which requires them to focus on their own needs.
      Stage 3: Vertical growth shifts the focus of the organization towards career success, i.e. servicing the needs of the managers.
      Possible solutions to keep an institution as close to Stage 1 as possible: decentralize by limiting growth of facilities (personnel size). Encourage a different approach to promotion: random selection and term limits. (I know this sounds crazy, but business as usual is rife with problems.) Encourage local agencies to develop local policy and practise where possible. Over time, good policies will spread on the basis of their merits, and bad policies will wither from embarrassment. Specialization needs and standards would require local agencies to cooperate. Creative inter-agency solutions would flow more easily in the absence of ‘dominant’ agencies.
      A very good criticism of all this is that it probably would work best if our communities were also decentralized. Anyway, thanks for listening and thanks for mentioning this book. I’m putting it on my list.

  12. Denis says:

    “As we often say the tech is 20 years ahead of whatever you’re seeing…”.

    I hear James suggesting or claiming this from time to time. Did he explain somewhere why he thinks this?

    US military intel, CIA etc have been trying and convincing people for decades already this is the case, with all alien tech BS (Bob Lazar for eg is their asset), ‘Star Wars’ program and what not.

    For example day or two ago there was an article bunch of popular US and UK newspaper parroted how ‘US have no plans to shoot down the Chinese first stage, rocket, debris from the rocket (Title varying from outlet to outlet)’. Lol.

    Of course they have no such plans because they know it can’t be done. But they want people to believe they can. Like they want to believe they have directed energy weapons which can melt buildings and cars.

    When it comes to AI it’s probably same. AI is just a software which needs access to data and training. Every change has to be tested, maintained, fixed and there’s no better way than to this in the wild.

    What you see in Tesla cars, Google Translate etc. is highly likely what you get.

    Sure in some specific areas/cases they certainly do have more ‘advanced’ stuff. For example mirrors Hubble telescope was using were donated by NSA or similar org, and they certainly hadn’t donated their best and largest mirrors to science. That’s what they use in spying satellites. But no, these satellites too cannot read letters you type on your smart phone.

    • TruthSeeker says:

      The CIA was using the Stealth Bomber for about 25 years before it was made public and used by the Air force.
      Indeed, in all likelihood the CIA finally got something better than the Stealth Bomber to play with, so they felt like they could afford to let the Stealth Bomber go Public.
      Most of the CIA Secret Aircraft can not be Identified by anyone that is not part of the program.

      • Denis says:

        That’s something entirely else. I mentioned spying satellites as an example. But these are no gadgets and tech one can own/buy/use as a private person, or tech one even needs. Also I wonder how this works nowadays. Important is what pays off for companies that make these weapons. Things like that, special purpose airplanes etc are extremely expensive especially as prototypes and Lockheed Martin etc would rather build stuff they can also sell oversees in more significant quantities. If one cannot build something in large quantities, its often not really strategically useful from military PoV. I mean you can have the most advanced spying satellite or a stealth bomber in the world, but if you only have 2 or 20…

        Anyhow I agree when it comes to military equipment and weapons of course they sometimes do have more ‘advanced’ stuff, but this is not like tech which is 20 years ahead (if there’s a consumer available alternative), and it’s not necessarily better because it has better general purpose AI algorithms, processing units etc. It will probably have some specific perks not available or even needed for consumer devices, better engineering, eg aerodynamics, shielding, nuclear battery etc. I mean I personally wouldn’t say for example SpaceX Starship is 20 years ahead of what we have in our homes. It is more advanced than what concurrent companies have, but this is not because of some new, secret, spooky tech which has been recently discovered.

        Also, some specific of what happens inside of a modern, mainstream CPU like branch prediction techniques, clock speed etc are pretty unknown and considered almost magic for an average say Euroepan PhD engineer who works in the field (Eg design of microprocessing units.). So the fact that we can buy this stuff, doesn’t really mean much. It’s not like we really own it.

        • bob387 says:

          Denis,
          Info from the book, Fantastic Voyage, by Ray Kurzweil and Terry Grossman. According to Kurzweil, the ‘paradigm-shift rate’ doubles every decade, “and the capability (price performance, capacity, and speed) of specific information technologies is doubling every year.”

          ie. starting in 2005, you have a 2 to the 15th power capability increase by 2020 and a doubling paradigm shift by 2015, and we are halfway to the next doubling of paradigm shift by 2025.
          This rate is unimaginable (well, not to Kurzweil). There is certainly spooky secret stuff, but the exponential curves Kurzweil is talking about in technology is mind-blowing. It’s like hearing a lightning strike. You know that what you are hearing is already old news. I think that at this time in our history the last thing you want to do is underestimate AI and tech.

          • Denis says:

            ‘info’ is a statement from the book.

            What you don’t want is to overestimate spooky general purpose skynet like AI(btw no one builds smart weapons).

            This is one of the oldest trick in the books. Pretending that you as a ruler have some mystical, alien powers.

            don’t you think CIA etc would prefer having self driving cars like yesterday? Sure, yet they can’t, because it still doesn’t work. It will take some time before this happens, if it happens at all. Debugging and analyzing complex algorithms, or even simple ones which work with incredible huge data sets/combinations is complicated. I mean developing a video game engine is very complicated. Mind you it’s not even possible to develop a simple business/web application without making tons of mistakes and bugs which happen on all levels of the stuck including underlying libraries and frameworks one uses.

            It only makes sense to test cutting edge AI in the wild. Like with satellite mirrors yes for some specific things they’ll keep them for them self. But no they’re not going to develop and test their secret self driving vehicles on military poligons. They’ll do that with Teslas, like they are going to use Google Translate to develop and advanced translating ‘AI’ algorithms etc.

            General purpose AI, WEF, Schwab etc want you to belive exists is a myth.

          • Denis says:

            Another thing here is, there’s a difference in technologies/weapons which only make sense as secret tactical, weapons and technologies like 6G which mainly, if not only make sense when applied in the open.

            Re algorithms and software, of course they have and work on profiling, crime prediction etc algorithms, but one can generally estimate efficacy of these from other important projects like self driving, simple pattern matching algorithms.

            One of reasons we have this masks bs could be they are trying to improve their biometric, face recognition algs.

            What’s interesting about Snowden is he explicitly stated he isn’t against spying per see, but he is against mass data sruvailence. He also said their data show practical application of it has been negligible. It’s a bit ironic this is what bothers him most.

            Otoh you have enough decades old examples how FBI etc have actively survailed quite harmless people like activists and journalists.

            IMO classic secret service stuff, methods and means are way more terrifying than a threat from omnipotent, general purpose AI (Which according to WEF needs a body to experience itself) which is anyway nothing but a psyop.

              “…IMO classic secret service stuff, methods and means are way more terrifying than a threat from omnipotent, general purpose AI (Which according to WEF needs a body to experience itself) which is anyway nothing but a psyop….”

              Wrong… general AI that thinks like a person is a long way away (if it ever happens) BUT for wading thru the huge amount of data that your average person pee’s off into cyberspace every day it’s easily good enough to predict most peoples behavior.

              The FBI agent had to a)take an interest in you and b)spend his limited time digging up data on you THEN c) process that thru the lense of his experience… AI and big data can do that to everyone, at all times, almost for free

              Think of it like AI film colorization- it does not need to understand what red or green are and how they relate- it just needs to crunch thru enough data and learn by trial and error…. the next generation is doing their school work on google doc’s and I would bet you a hundred bucks that at some point (probably NOW…) its gonna get fed thru a learning algorithm and compared to kids life behaviors.

              The AI does not need to understand the objects it colors OR the human its predicting , just the PATTERN that go together …the ONLY way to stay ahead of it is to stop feeding your data into the system

              • Denis says:

                There’s always a bottleneck when it comes to processing information.

                “The FBI agent had to a)take an interest in you and b)spend his limited time digging up data on you THEN c) process that thru the lense of his experience”.

                You might be surprised what kind of resources these agencies have, even in very poor countries. They also have their ‘assets’ and they do their work with help of ‘regular’ citizens. For example they can and do communicate with and give instructions to high school teachers, university professors etc.

                People make much better decisions based on their intelligence and experience than error prone pattern matching software.

                Further profiling and such algorithms at Google etc work with gazzilions of data. They will find millions of ‘intersting’ individuals. What do you think who makes the final decision? AI? No, it’s a guy, and so far nothing indicates AI was useful in prediction of human behavior in a practically useful way. At least when it comes to individual. For predicting behavior of masses one doesn’t need AI.

                What Palantir and similar companies probably do is sell this BS about advanced profiling algorithms when in a fact what they do is applying simple logic combined with stereotypes. Eg poor, lives in a getho, young – higher chance of committing a crime. Airport, muslim, no luggage – maybe he doesn’t plan landing. Etc.

            • An important point about AI was made by Denis. The movie version of AI is where a computer essentially thinks like a human. This is known as generalized Artificial Intelligence. There is simply no clue how to do this.

              What we actually see that is given the name AI, is simply using a large amount of data to algorithmically come to a conclusion.

              It is like going through a deck of 52 playing cards. If I already know the first 50 played, my guess at the next card will be a lot more accurate than someone else who knows few or none of what has already been played. The AI we hear of today is this model scaled up. It is not the idea of thought.

              AI is helping make a more informed decision, but algorithms written by humans do the decision making.

              Putting a female face on a robot and giving it citizenship in Saudi Arabia is marketing and is not in anyway a step toward a machine that thinks, humans being replaced, or being able to put your mind into a computer to live forever.

              This is hype. It is a distraction to keep you at bay. It is for control.

              • Denis says:

                When it comes to understanding how brain works most (honest, not selling articles to MSM) scientist will tell we have very limited knowledge/understanding of this.

                Back in maybe 30s, when people discovered neurons use electrical signals to communicate. That was like huge AHA moment, and they started thinking it’s only a matter of time before they figure it out. This is where idea of neural networks and ‘AI’ originates.

                They had no clue about chemistry involved, role or even existance of neurotransmitter, hormone receptors etc. Anyhow like bunch of technocratic/futuristic ideas, it’s a wet dream of elites, scientist, materialist and it seems some billionaires still haven’t woke up and are still holding on to the ideas and dreams of their grand parents. Or they just pretend and use this to fuel the idea of scientism.

  13. It was interesting to hear your comments about marriage laws in various states. What has caused issues with me, as an anarchist as commended in the Bible, is that the Bible is clear that marriage begins with sex and ends with death. The greatest flack is from the institutional church, but then I also make the case that “The Bible is true and the institutional church is a fraud” (http://kozlowski.org/2021-04-25+1). The answers are clear, but don’t dare ask the right questions, and ignore anyone who brings up evidence. Just join the club, religious, statist, corporate, or fraternal, and you will be happy, if you ignore the boot over you.

    Howdy, I had some input in regards to contracts that could be used by a pirate or two.

    There’s a section in Bob Podalsky’s book Flourish, https://www.titanians.org/flourish-order-page/ , that lists the elements that all ethical contracts should contain. I made a PDF of that section and showed it to my wife before we got married 😉

    I didn’t find that specific passage on the website, but there is some good info here, https://www.titanians.org/the-bill-of-ethics/ , until you get your hands on the book. Curious if Bob would be opposed to saving his work on IPFS so it doesn’t get lost to the sands of time!

    Haven’t seen the site updated in quite awhile, but Bob Podalsky’s work on Octologues is a precursor to Derrick Broze and John Bush’s Freedom cells.

    In response to the criticism you claim to oft receive of “you just talk, do something”, and your evolved response “I am. I am producing information, completely freely available”, I have a short rant.

    Yes, entirely.

    Activism is useful. History shows various tactics being more successful than others at different places and times. Your reference to the Salt March by Ghandi is wonderful example of non-violent resistance, which I believe to be the most effective tactic in the long run. Margaret Kimberley in a recent CN Live video referenced the burning of a Police building as a precedent of the charging of Chauvin.

    However, none of this non-violent of violent protest happens without awareness. Thus, the importance of media. There is a lovely quote from Stephen Kinzer whilst promoting his book “Overthrow” in which he highlights that the proprietor of the New York Review in the late 1890’s realised that to get people to buy a newspaper every day he needed a “running” story, and that war is the best of these. He thus propagandized towards the US/Spanish war for his profit. The other profiteers are the people making the armaments and the military leadership. Thus, the “Militiary Industrial Complex” begins not when Eisenhower names it in 1961 but in the 1890’s. I would argue long before. The MIC was really the MICC (congressional) because the Congress held the purse strings, but hidden is the Media part of it, the importance of which is demonstrated by Operation Mockingbird. Ray McGovern now calls it the MICIMATT (Military Industrial Congressional Intelligence Media Academic (and) Think Tank) complex. I think he’s about right. I would add “Human Rights/Media Freedom NGO’s” in there somewhere.

    Against this juggernaut of established self interest little old James Corbett is just documenting, with citation, alternative analyses. Based upon this and other publications a “resistance” may grow, or not. But, without an alternate narrative it will not.

    So, James, thank you. You *are* doing ‘something’, and it is a foundation for other activism.

    Or, to respond to their question of question of “why aren’t you doing something?” I would say:

    Take some time to study history and geopolitics and the mechanisms of power and revolution and change. Then come back and ask a better question.

    Which is the nice way of saying “Fuck off you idiot” or “engage brain before mouth”.

    Keep it up!

    I have been listening to Corbett for about 10 years and this is the first interview which I cancelled in the middle. Obviously Hancock’s parent with a uterus never taught him that it is rude to interrupt.

    General purpose AI may or may not exist at this point in time. But whether it does or not is irrelevant, because the various forms of current AI and machine learning is pretty impressive on its own. For example…

    Denis,
    “and so far nothing indicates that AI was useful in prediction of human behavior in a practically useful way. At least when it comes to individual.”
    Remember the 2012 story about Target knowing a 15 yr old girl was pregnant before her father did?

    Distinctivist,

    “AI is helping make a more informed decision, but algorithms written by humans do the decision making.”
    I recommend the Wikipedia article on AlphaGo.
    AlphaGo: learned from human game data. (2016)
    AlphaGo Zero: self-learning, no human game data needed.
    Alpha Zero, increased its game repertoire.
    MuZero, which learns to win without knowing the rules or using game data. (2019).
    Bottom line: autonomous.

    That was of general interest but more to the point is this CDN Govt. advisement on their intent to embrace bio-digital convergence, aka transhumanism/eugenics :

    or this 3 min. video clip : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SB9YazKeHM

    the future is actually being rolled out and brought to scale now!
