The Big Four tech giants control most of the world’s information flow, drug and food supply. Google and Facebook tried to manipulate the recent presidential election by prioritising, and sometimes burying content altogether. Throughout the history of human civilisation, including periods of ecclesiastical rule, no entity has had as much power to influence and control the social and political ideals of billions of people with zero oversight or regulation as these tech giants. Democracy’s only hope is for Google, Amazon, Facebook and Twitter to be broken up and regulated.
Before we all start frothing at the mouth over the recent indictments by Robert Mueller over alleged US election interference by the Russians, let’s get a few things clear: We do not yet have any evidence of any collusion with the Russian government. What we do have evidence of however, is the overwhelming influence of foreign money in US politics.
On 16th October the world received a clear signal of what is valued by the ruling elites of the United States – John McCain was awarded the 2017 Liberty Medal at the National Constitution Centre. Whatever John McCain received that medal for – it was not ‘liberty’. History doesn’t actually ring a bell, but it does provide signals of what is to come. John McCain’s medal represents the hijacking of liberty to justify tyranny.
Washington in general, and the CIA in particular, are going after Julian Assange for one reason: Because he reveals the truth about the crimes they commit. The rest of it is bullshit.
Hillary Clinton’s denial tour of America demonstrates she still hasn’t learned the key lesson of the election. Her book is a series of specious arguments for the dim-witted, filled to the brim with excuses and lies that embodies Washington’s pay-to-play swamp culture. This is precisely why nothing ever gets done in DC —politicians get paid off and everyone else gets screwed.
