I had to pay crazy money for my new rig because of the chip shortage, but it's not all bad:

 

Shortage of chips threatens biometric passport, digital ID supply – and the suppliers
https://www.biometricupdate.com/202107/shortage-of-chips-threatens-biometric-passport-digital-id-supply-and-the-suppliers

 

 

Not to mention other very finite resources required such as energy and intra system communications. Rumours of the end goal of a totalitarian technocratic mastery of the planet are very exaggerated for exactly these kinds of reasons. But the fear of the technocracy is sufficient for the the dark overlords if we don't wake up to their agenda in big enough numbers.

 

The broken attempts at creating AI, digital control software systems, are terrifying as much for the bugs and defects that will seriously fuck up unsuspecting, innocent peoples live too.

 

The slave conditions for the human workers maintaining the charade of the fourth industrial revolution are pretty evil too.

I can't lie, Amazon's first major venture in the gaming space is looking pretty sinister. "New World" and the one eye. Hmmm...

KFC is working with a Russian 3D bioprinting firm to try to make lab-produced chicken nuggets
https://www.theverge.com/2020/7/18/21329453/kfc-russia-bioprinting-lab-chicken-nuggets-sustainable

 

"3D bioprinting is a slow, laborious process"

 

Every demo I watch of bioprinting is speeded up when we see the nozzles in action because at "normal" speed bioprinting is very slow.

 

Has anybody seen evidence of a technology breakthrough that shows they've cracked the speed problem?

 

If not you're gonna need a massive number of machines going 24/7 to produce them franken-nuggets!

 

If they do succeed, anybody who willingly puts shit like this into their bodies will thoroughly deserve whatever shady underhand crap they add to the bio gel as a surprise gift.

 

Lipid nanoparticles? Graphene? That's the technocratic, transhumanist dream at some level of all of this.

 

Terrifying *if* they ever build anything that actually delivers on the shiny videos promising amazing breakthroughs. I wonder how many venture capital billions are currently being burned by the legions of startups producing these vapourware sales pitches?

Ending Anonymity: Why the WEF’s Partnership Against Cybercrime Threatens the Future of Privacy
https://www.thelastamericanvagabond.com/ending-anonymity-why-wefs-partnership-against-cybercrime-threatens-future-privacy/

 

So much important information in this article. A must read IMHO.

 

If people don't wake up to the problem-reaction-solution around digital privacy and this "cybercrime" stuff starts being implemented, then fighting and winning back those freedoms will be so much harder.

 

Alot of this is fear porn though IMHO rather than cyber countermeasures they can actually achieve and roll out.

 

But will you move your fiat into a privacy coin if you are constantly being told that the authorities now consider you a cybercriminal. How unsettling will the show trials of renegade cryptocurrency personalities be to Joe public? Watching individuals sentenced to long jail terms for the cybercriminal act of acting with privacy in their digital financial matters.

 

So privacy coins can be destroyed by fear alone. They don't even need to deliver any real measures beyond legislation and the occasional bit of financial forensics to nail a handful of crypto dudes.

Out of reactions, but well said.
