A slippery slope to the death of the internet.
Gabriel, thank you thank you thank you for bringing this home to the big picture, and laying out how important it is not to be fooled into supporting totalitarianism simply because it’s your ideological opponents under the boot.
Sam Bankman-Fried just had his bail revoked for alleged “witness tampering”. It’s not clear this was at all an appropriate remedy given what he’s alleged to have done, and is likely unconstitutional. I’m no fan of SBF, but this is a perfect example of how bad precedents can be set and supported by the masses.
The internet version of being debanked? Denmark already has digital id well advanced, they have a code generating gadget to access most services on the internet.
This non-technically programmed robot appreciated the reminder to be fully informed and active on the digital front. Thanks!
Great Post Gabriel. Though it is a very technical subject, you've simplified it nicely so an ex-IT-tech-nerd like me can even understand it (I studied Computer Science in college just when punch-cards were nearing their end, and even later programmed web pages on mainframes even before the web integrated images, only text and links then). That's how old I am!
The Rogers outage last year was no technical bug. I will be talking about this in Part 2 of my current series (see Part 1 - The Alien Deception Distraction, https://fournier.substack.com/p/the-alien-deception-distraction-part). Seems unrelated for now, but trust me...
Would you mind if I consulted with you on a related technical matters for my upcoming post? If not, could you give (or send me an email at email@example.com) your email address? I'd love to pick your brain.
Cheers and thanks for this article and the 'Tools of the Technocracy: #9 Internet Shutdowns' article, for these are so pertinent to what's coming down the pike with the internet.
I read somewhere that Tor itself was a tool of intelligence agencies?
Such an interesting topic and clear explanation, Gabe. My friend who runs WikiSpooks said it was deplatformed because they threatened his domain provider. He'd ignored their threats but the ISP had folded. That was when Malone posted "RIP Wikispooks, a source I'd often consulted," and I, being a naive believer at the time, contacted my friend to see if I could give Malone his contact info. He enthusiastically said yes, but after an initial contact Malone dropped out. His domain got back online but what really happened? Now he's accusing Mathew of "aggressively editing" his very tame profile (but thanks for the additions, Liam) and drawing more attention to it. Why?
My ISP for my domains suddenly had an error making it inaccessible for thirdparadigm.org after I referenced one of my old radio episodes critically citing the Torah. That may be coincidence since Network Solutions has gotten increasingly shady, including sending out notices from its own address that my email has been marked for 'sparm'. I haven't made any changes to it in 10 yrs. Any suggestions for a new hosting service?
Great piece. I used to work in Network Ops many moons ago for one of the largest networks in the UK. I remember seeing the ease with which traffic could be stopped on peering and transit routers and thinking, shite, someday that’s going to be deployed.... i wasn’t the tech guy. I just learned enough tech to act as translator between the mega tech guys and like ‘normal’ corporate.
I have been wondering for some time now if/when this would ever start happening. Seems like the perfect tool for these control freaks. A person can run all their own servers they want, but if you can't connect, they're just glorified paperweights
Well done piece.
Nice piece Gabriel. Keep doing wh a t your doing. It really freaking important for what's coming. The trajectory we are on, is creating a new version of class system. Those who can only use gov sanctioned tech, and access propaganda. And those who know how to work around and can see through the controlled tech. And to work the system, rather than have the system work you, you need to know which is which.
Me, after working in tech, I'm out. Never to go back, so I won't offer to help. But I'll be more boots on the ground in the local ether.😉
