14th March 2024
It’s Tuesday, freedom day, well briefly at least. I recently got my slots shifted about though, they appear to have some new algorithm which seems to have switched who gets priority for the earlier time slots as my app is now telling me that 7.15pm is my access time for the supermarket. Only 30 minutes later than before I suppose, so I can’t really complain.
One good thing, I can walk to the shop this week, apparently there is a window of time between 6.30pm and 9.00pm which will see the east park area, the back way to the shops quiet – seems no one reserved the ‘rite of passage’ this week – lucky me, I think.
I’m just hoping work pays me this week, I realised late last night that I hadn’t logged on at all for the whole day, I did the work, it’s just they changed the system and muggins here forgot to use the new system. Sarah did say she’d lend me the cash, but she’s back in quarantine for the 4th time in as many months.
Damn fucking viruses, just finished watching China’s second wave this year, seems worse than the last. One video literally had people falling down like pins in a bowling alley, kind of puts things into perspective – I moan, sometimes it’s hard, but when you look at the alternative, well, we’ve got it pretty good.
Welcome to the ‘New Normal’
We keep hearing about the ‘New Normal’, we hear it from every government mouthpiece around the World, we hear how ‘things will probably never go back to how they were’, why is that? What’s changed? Oh, the virus, the COVID19 that’s wiping out civilisation as I write, or not as the case seems to be.
I don’t care what you think about the situation, whether you think it is indeed some nasty strain of coronavirus as we are being told or whether you think it’s a big fat hoax to con the World out of its basic freedoms with a whole host of other benefits to boot, regardless of any of this, the numbers, even if doubled, tripled, or quadrupled do not justify an entire shift in how we function as a society.
The lunatics preaching this continual stream of ridiculous claptrappery (second time I’ve used my newly invented word) are just lunatics, control freaks and psychopaths; so for them, the idea of limiting basic freedoms for entire societies is, of course, a natural progression to how things should be, we should be locked up, scared and only allowed out on good behaviour – psychopath logic 101.
The general population however, what on earth are they playing at, you don’t get to take this back. Freedom is often taken away, but rarely given back, that requires a revolution and judging by how so many seem to be quite happy to do as they are told, like good scared dependable little citizens, I don’t think we can rely on a revolution from those guys.
Lets just make it a little clearer, just to help those who are not quite up with the latest cool stuff they are planning to put into place to save you from, errrrm, something.
Tracing Apps and Bracelets
That’s right, get your very own trendy bracelet. But this isn’t just any old bracelet, no sir-ree, this is a state-of-the art (probably made in China) tracking bracelet. By tracking entire populations and updating who is infected and who isn’t infected, you can be sure of your safety at all times. If bracelets are not your thing, don’t worry, they’ve got that covered, a smart phone app can be used instead.
But that’s not it, this is the gift that just keeps on giving. Not only can you be warned, and ensure others are warned about potential COVID19 infected individuals, it can also ensure social distancing can be optimized and enforced. If your proximity is getting too close to another fellow human, well it can warn you. Just a friendly little tinkle, or vibrate and a signal back to your local government and you can correct the error of your ways.
This is brilliant, and why wouldn’t it be, when Bill Gates is behind it you just know it’s going to be awesome, just like Windows Vista, right. Ok, that kinda sucked, but this won’t, just imagine how easy life will become with a DigitalID. No longer will you have to remember your passport, it’ll be half an inch under your skin! Awesome, right.
While these may start off in some form of tattoo based RFID technology, the implant does seem to be the favourite way to go. But it’s not just convenience that makes these new passports so awesome, just think of all the other data you could attach to it.
For one, we can make sure those dirty anti-vaxxers are stopped before they attempt to go into public confined spaces, whether that be an airplane or just your local cinema, with a simple RFID chip, it takes no time to root these folk out and where necessary prosecute.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg, there are a whole host of fun little freedom grabbing things that can be done with these digitialIDs. Hats off to Gates and Co., who needs freedom anyway, that’s what I say.
Rethinking Freedom of Speech
You’ve probably seen it, people just speaking freely online about their opinions and theories, often they use facts – as if that somehow makes it ok! Well, fortunately for us, this kind of behaviour is finally getting the attention it deserves, better late than never.
As the Atlantic recently stated:
In the great debate of the past two decades about freedom versus control of the network, China was largely right and the United States was largely wrong.
Significant monitoring and speech control are inevitable components of a mature and flourishing internet, and governments must play a large role in these practices to ensure that the internet is compatible with a society’s norms and values.
and how right they are, China has perfected governance of its people through great new initiatives like a Government controlled Internet, total restriction on Freedom of Speech and the brilliant social crediting system which ensures disobedience can be punished accordingly.
Thankfully, we have already seen YouTube and Facebook take the appropriate action and shut down all these folks who think it’s OK to just ‘speak their mind’.
On a more serious note, because while I jest and have used sarcasm throughout – i’ve done so because what’s the alternative, my forehead is sore, the walls have all crumbled, logic and sense seems to be something reserved for myths and legends of late.
Please, take a little moment to think about the situation we find ourselves in, think beyond any immediate fears and worries you may have, think about the future, your childrens future. Think what a World will look like if we continue to go down this road, what will the ‘New Normal’ look like in 10 years?
Make no mistake, when Government officials say ‘things may never go back to the way it was before’ – they mean it. We are being prepped everyday through our continual stream of coronavirus media that things will be different forever, to be ready for the ‘new normal’.
Right this minute there are thousands upon thousands of industries trying to work out how they can adapt to the new normal, from travel seating layouts to casinos – every aspect of what we once knew is being redesigned on the back of this pandemic. If it was not a scam by design, which many believe it to be, then it will definitely result in the biggest scam the World has ever seen – the scam for your freedom.
Your freedom is being redesigned and monetized.
Well, I don’t want the new normal. Do you?
