We’re Almost There: The 3 Stages to Dystopia

If you think locking up 26 million people is scary, think again. THIS combination is even worse.

If you think locking up 26 million people is scary, think again. THIS combination is even worse.

Imagine 26 million people locked without escape.  

That is EXACTLY what happened last year in one of China’s biggest and most prominent cities, Shanghai.

And it was all because of its COVID-zero policy.

But the scale of President Xi’s quarantine measures wasn’t the scariest part.

It was the unthinkable power China’s Communist Party (CCP) was able to exert over its people with technology.

Last year, I revealed how the CCP effectively used drones with facial recognition tech to track down infringers:

“Like sci-fi cops, drones and robot dogs equipped with facial recognition tech are zipping around the city. They are ordering residents to “control the soul’s desire for freedom” and comply with lockdown rules.”

Those who didn’t comply took a hit to their “social credit score” and digital wallets:

“Those who don’t obey are evicted to” quarantine centers.” They lose their social credit scores. And, according to a taken-down popular Twitter account, some are “fined directly from digital CBDCs [central bank digital currency] wallets.” 

Meanwhile, everything was kept quiet via all-out internet censorship.

Via The Chinese Project:

“Since the outbreak began in Shanghai, so many people have spoken out in the past month. However, the majority of these voices were quickly wiped off the Chinese internet and people have grown numb to the situation as time went by,” the creator of the video, who introduced himself as a filmmaker named Cary, wrote in a WeChat post.”

While you may think this can’t happen on our side of the world, think again. 

Canada’s government has already introduced a bill to control what Canadians see and hear.

Via Openmedia.org:

“…Bill C-11 gives the CRTC unprecedented regulatory authority to monitor all online audiovisual content. This power extends to penalizing content creators and platforms and through them, content creators that fail to comply.

…According to the government, Bill C-11 will ‘increase visibility’ for some officially recognized Canadian content creators– but their tool for doing this is manipulating our playlists, feeds, and algorithmic recommendations.

This means that the CRTC will be picking winners and losers, forcing some officially recognized content ‘up’ in feeds and recommendations, while downranking or hiding other content we’d otherwise receive.”

But while it may seem this is what voters wanted when Trudeau was re-elected, unlike Xi Jinping in China, it’s not the government that truly rules the West.

Let me explain.

Stage 1: State Affiliated Media

Consider Twitter.

Last November, Musk shelled out $44 billion to free the West’s most important social network from the kind of censorship that, according to recent studies, determined the last two elections.

Musk’s Twitter gave hope. But fast forward to today, Musk seems to be admitting defeat. 

He’s pledged to resign, reporting a “massive” hit to revenue and warning the company could go bankrupt. And despite all the hassle, Twitter was still forced to bow to the government.

As a “f*ck this” gesture, Musk finally slapped “State Affiliated Media” on his Twitter bio. When asked why, he bluntly responded that Twitter is just that, and so it “should have that label.”

So, what happened? 

Why did this historic free speech experiment slow down so fast? 

Did Musk bite off more than he could chew? Or was it the government’s doing? 

After all, Musk’s takeover ruffled more than a few feathers on Capitol Hill.

And the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) was immediately ordered to probe Twitter.

But for all its threats, the government didn’t take any material action against Musk or Twitter. In fact, CFIUS hasn’t even opened the investigation yet.

What really killed Twitter was Corporate America and it’s ultimate master, Wall Street.

Think about it. 

What happened immediately after Musk took over Twitter?

The world’s largest public companies, from Apple to Coca-Cola to Pfizer (for obvious reasons), pulled their ads – choking Twitter’s only real source of revenue.

According to a recent report, 500 of America’s largest corporations have pulled ad dollars from Twitter.

Via The Information:

“A senior Twitter manager told employees that the company’s daily revenue on Tuesday was 40% lower than the same day a year ago, underscoring the crisis facing its core ads business, according to a person with direct knowledge.

In a staff meeting on Tuesday, Siddharth Rao, an engineering manager overseeing the engineers working on Twitter’s ad business, also told employees in a presentation that more than 500 of Twitter’s top advertisers have paused spending on Twitter since Elon Musk took over in October.”

Currently, Twitter likely doesn’t generate enough cash to even cover interest payments. And it’s burning $4 million every day, leaving Musk little time to change Twitter’s business model.

It seems the only way to keep the blue bird afloat is for Musk to sell more equity:

If Wall Street keeps at it, by the time Twitter gets out of this hole—if ever— Musk may have to dilute himself to a minority shareholder.

Who then will dictate the curation of information and semantics of “free speech”?

That’s right, those who hold a majority stake — the elites.

Stage 2: Artificial Intelligence

If the control of speech isn’t enough of a psyop to control the people, there’s Artificial Intelligence (AI).

As discussed in “More Powerful than Meta, Google, and Twitter. Combined:”

“Most people get AI wrong. They think of it as this cool tool that can write you an essay or a block of code from scratch.”

That’s astoundingly narrow-minded.

Because in the grand scheme of things, AI isn’t as much of a tool as it is a source of information.

For ChatGPT-like AI to piece together an essay, it has to scour the web, collect petabytes of information, sort through it all, and then present it in concise, human-like prose. 

That means AI tools like ChatGPT have an inherent curation algorithm—and, inevitably, a bias – just like Bill C-11 in Canada is attempting to accomplish.

And since AI will soon become a staple reference in journalism and academia, this bias will feed into every piece of news or even peer-reviewed literature.

Via Nature:

“And Alex Zhavoronkov, chief executive of Insilico Medicine, an AI-powered drug-discovery company in Hong Kong, credited ChatGPT as a co-author of a perspective article in the journal Oncoscience last month. He says that his company has published more than 80 papers produced by generative AI tools. “We are not new to this field,” he says.”

When Musk founded OpenAI (the creator of ChatGPT), he feared exactly this scenario. 

He knew AI would become too powerful to be owned by any single entity. So he strived to build an open-source AI that would be accessible to everyone. 

Unfortunately, as I wrote last time, when OpenAi developed ChatGPT and realized the power of AI, Musk was kicked out (or left?), and the company became a for-profit entity.

The official version is that he left because he “didn’t agree with some of what [the] OpenAI team wanted to do.”

Now we know what he refused to condone.

This month, a long-rumored deal closed when Microsoft bought a 49% stake in OpenAI for $10 billion. 

Microsoft will pocket 75% of OpenAI profits until it recoups its original investment. After that, it will be the single biggest shareholder in OpenAI.

In other words, Musk’s dream of open-source AI is officially dead.

Microsoft will now own an influential chunk of OpenAI, and who knows how Bill Gates will exploit.

Is the timing and language of Canada’s Bill C11 coinciding with the release of ChatGPT to the public a coincidence?

After all, word is that Bill Gates and Trudeau are very close…


But that’s not all.

Google will soon release its own AI chatbot alternative to ChatGPT called LaMDA. 

Just like social media, AI and its algorithms will be dictated by Silicon Valley technocrats and, thus, their views.

And don’t think for one second that ChatGPT is an advanced AI – it’s not. 

It’s only what the public is allowed access to at this time. And that means far more powerful AI already exists. 

Meanwhile, all the mainstream media care about is how students will cheat on their papers.

With control of both speech and information, what could be next for the elites to control?

Stage 3: The Digital Dollar

Following in China’s footsteps, the Fed is scrambling to launch its own central bank digital currency (CBDC). And as we previously exposed, it is designed to be as tyrannical as Xi Jinping’s e-Yuan.

For example, the digital dollar would potentially allow the Fed to become the only depository institution.

Via “The End of the Monetary System As We Know It”:

“In theory, the central bank could simply issue and distribute money directly to citizens. They could even hold and control digital dollars directly—and maintain reserves that back that liability. 

So, a digital dollar could, in principle, cut out depository institutions entirely.”

In other words, not only would the Fed create money, it could selectively distribute that money, opening up many possibilities for some neo-fiscal policy.

Via “The Fed’s Biggest Problem: Solved”:

“If the Fed had the technology to replace cash, it would no longer need brick-and-mortar gatekeepers.

Instead, it could introduce digital dollar tokens, disintermediate commercial banks, and control all currency in circulation.

The implications are endless.

In theory, the Fed could pursue some kind of neo-fiscal policy (for lack of a better word). As a “wholesale lender,” it could fund select companies and organizations without commercial banks or even the backing of Congress.

…For example, the government can suddenly deduct a “tax” from your savings to fight climate change. Or punish the unvaccinated with “health insurance surcharges.” Or even straight up freeze digital wallets to censor opinions…”

Unaudited, unelected, and unaccounted for.

With all of this power via unlimited amounts of money, the Fed – or the people behind it – could very well be the true elites. And people as influential as Gates could even be their puppets.

Which brings us back to the kicker of this story.

Freedom to Choose the Options They Give

You are led to believe that the democratically elected two chambers and the Oval office govern America, and the Liberals govern Canada.

But do they?

Or are they just puppets of Wall Street, who, in turn, may just be a puppet of the Fed?

If you think that’s too far-fetched, rememberWall Street owns the biggest stake in 96% of America’s biggest companies. And there’s hard evidence they used that voting power to influence corporate policies that favor their interests.

Can you imagine the power “they” will wield with AI and the digital dollar, combined with the indoctrination of society through media control?

We’re living in a technocratic oligarchy. And we don’t even know it.

If you want to survive and prosper, your best bet is to follow the big money.

And there’s no one bigger than the Fed.

This is why we have been telling you over and over again to follow the Fed – it is your most accurate market indicator

From there, it’s filtered to the puppets.

And the puppets have been on a buying spree of farmland, AI, green energy, and everything else related to the new dystopian world.
