“His response was to fight it with the only weapons at hand—passive resistance and open displays of contempt.” ― Kurt Vonnegut, The Sirens of Titan
My best guess is that they are predominantly icey white, very often Jewish ( though lots of black, brown, and other Spice People buy- in too), often compromised males, with a numerous contingent of white females who have peeked into their dresser drawers ( shout out to white, female IT directors at major American, British, and Swedish agencies and universities), running guard, or gatekeeper, on information tech and its potential as blackmail, compromise, and otherwise useful information.
They run in packs, they inhibit free speech, and they will sell your freedom to get or keep a piece of privilege. They are dutifully employed, part of the machinery denying others employment.
And, most if not all of them, have names that come straight out of Hogans Heroes or some other WW2 spoof.
Like, Schmidt, for instance:
Google engine as a “reality interface”.
Ordinary users as well as journalists tend to rely on the first pages of Google search, assuming that everything not listed there is either not important or merely does not exist. The researchers say that “Google has become the main interface for our whole reality. To be precise: with the Google interface the user gets the impression that the search results imply a kind of totality. In fact, one only sees a small part of what one could see if one also integrates other research tools”.
SOURCED FROM WIKIPEDIA, a known intelligence agency message board, “watering hole”[….]honeypot, and a major part of the intelligence agency honeynet.
The quoted article summarizes some of the criticism against Google’s complete collaboration with intelligence agencies.
It barely touches upon the actual collaboration.
THE ACTUAL COLLABORATION
Google is the product of the military industrial complex, and people like Schmidt are it’s salesforce; its PR flaks- the men in the middle between you and your perceived reality.
They function as they are told to, and they pass the orders down the chain, until finally it trickles down to you- the average person. From intelligence agency to fifth graders, they mediate media reality.
But average does not have to mean simple, simple minded, or even less than exceptional- average only means that you are in the middle too- in the middle of a lot of us, together in that or this moment, and that we are not them at any point in “real” time.
In fact, real time has passed us by already and we are merely in a moment- a moment where we actually can recreate reality- but it will be hard- we are up against Hydras, and the panoptical cyclops’.
Several classified programs allow companies to share the designs of their products with the agency so it can inspect them for flaws and, in some instances, install backdoors or other forms of privileged access. The types of companies that have shown the NSA their products include computer, server, and router manufacturers; makers of popular software products, including Microsoft; Internet and e-mail service providers; telecommunications companies; satellite manufacturers; antivirus and Internet security companies; and makers of encryption algorithms.
The linked article above clearly demonstrates the depth of this little problem of “free speech” not only being altered in real time on the net, but also something much more troubling- that “reality” is being formed by this corporate collaboration with the military.
They actively premeditate our reality, collectively, and individually. And, for the first time in human history, they can actively disrupt, usurp, or narrate reality formation for any and every one of us.
That the average persons very standard of what is “real” has, at every juncture, intercessors, mediators, negotiators, and manipulators-that the average persons perception of reality has become a multi-pronged attack vector wherein agencies have complete control, at HQ, to the corporate level, dribbling down to the average guy or gal.
How the CIA made Google
Inside the secret network behind mass surveillance, endless war, and Skynet—
Here is a look by Nafeez Ahmed at how the CIA uses these vectors; how intelligence agencies are creating reality whether you like it or not in your every day life.
As our governments push to increase their powers, INSURGE INTELLIGENCE can now reveal the vast extent to which the US intelligence community is implicated in nurturing the web platforms we know today, for the precise purpose of utilizing the technology as a mechanism to fight global ‘information war’ — a war to legitimize the power of the few over the rest of us. The lynchpin of this story is the corporation that in many ways defines the 21st century with its unobtrusive omnipresence: Google.
So, far from crazy, anyone who mentions that spy agencies ” follow them around” and “alter their reality” these people might actually be telling us something- and we should learn to listen, again, to each other. They could well be the canaries in the free speech coal mine.
These Little Eichmanns- they don’t have any sense of contact with ‘ we, the people,” prefering instead an alternate reality where CEO’s and intelligence agencies work together to shape your mind- while theirs runs roughshod over the mind you had before you met them.
They are the middlemen and the arbiters of freethought free will, and free speech- which has been eradicated in its entirety online, and perhaps, forever, because every thought you have has been premeditated for you.
They are that precise in their handiwork.
Another attempt to say it plain, which is, even then not simple.
