The Machines Have Us Trained for Obedience

Many decades ago there was an issue of Mad comics that portrayed a future time when everything was done by robots and humans had no function.  One day the system failed. As it had been eons since humans had to do anything, no one knew how to fix the system.  It was Mad comics version of Armageddon.

I think that is where the digital revolution is taking us.  I remember when appliances and cars responded to humans, and now humans respond to them.  When I grew up cars and home appliances did not go “beep-beep” to remind you of the things you were supposed to do, such as turn off the car lights and take the keys out of the ignition, or turn off the oven and shut the fridge.

Cars, except for British sports cars, didn’t have seat belts.  Today a car doesn’t stop beeping until you fasten your seat belts.  I hear that soon the cars won’t start until the seat belts are fastened.

When the electric company’s outsourced crew failed to connect the neutral line to my house and blew out all appliances, sprinkler system, and garage openers, the electric company replaced everything on a prorated depreciated basis that cost me thousands of dollars.  The worst part of it is that the new appliances boss me around.

The old microwave would gently beep three times and stop.  The new one beeps in the most insistent way—open the door you dumb human right this second, immediately—and keeps on insisting until I obey.  The fridge refuses to let me leave it open for cleaning.  The oven insists that I open it immediately, despite my habit of cutting the on time short and leaving whatever it is to cook awhile longer in the hot oven.

Here is an explanation of how our electric meters spy on us and pass on the information to interested parties.

Self-driving cars seem to be our future, and robots are taking our jobs away even faster than global corporations offshored them to Asia.

What exactly is it that humans are going to be good for?  Nothing it seems.

Why will we need a driving license when cars drive themselves?  If there is an accident, who is to blame?  The company that made the car?  The company responsible for the software?  What is the point of car insurance when drivers have no responsibility?

Perhaps it is true that aliens are living among us.  Their language is “beep-beep” and they are using our machines and cars to train us, like Pavlov’s dogs, to respond to their command.

I can remember when telephones were a convenience before they became a nuisance.  When my land line rings, 95% of the time it is a scam or a telemarketing call, usually robotic.  Now, a man will listen to a sexy female voice, for a time, and a woman will listen to a courtly gentleman’s voice, but until sex doll robots catch on, no one wants to listen to a machine’s voice.  So why the calls?  Why do the telephone companies permit their customers to be scammed and their privacy to be constantly invaded?  How do the phone companies benefit from permitting unethical people to destroy the value of phone service?

The same thing, I am told, happens to cell phone users.  Recently I finally had to acquire a smart phone, because two people I need to reach only respond to text messages.  They refuse to answer any phone, and email is so invaded by scammers, malware, and marketeers that they do not use email.  They do not even set up the message system on their cell phones. If you try to call them, you get instead of an answer the message that the person you are attempting to call has not set up their message box.

So there you have it.  Except for texting, which can’t (yet) be done with a land line, telephones are a nuisance.

Growing up in Atlanta during the 1940s and into the early 1950s, you could not yourself place a call from your telephone.  When you picked up the receiver, an AT&T operator answered and asked: “number please.”  You gave her the number, and she rang it and connected you if there was an answer.  If you did not know the number, you asked her for information.  If you knew the complete name and perhaps the street address, you were provided with the telephone number.

In those halcyon days even in a city such as Atlanta, Georgia, there were party lines.  That meant that you shared a telephone line with a neighbor.  If you picked up the receiver to make a call through the operator and heard voices speaking, you knew the line was in use and decency required that you hang up immediately.  As the talking parties heard the click when you picked up the line, if they didn’t hear the click when you hung up they asked you to get off their call.

In that system, there was no anonymity. Anonymity appeared with dial phones, which allowed you to make your own calls.  From a public telephone, the call was not traceable to you.  This technology was the beginning of our downfall.

Dial phones, something youths have seen only in antique shops or old movies are still with us in everyday language. We still say “dial the number” when we are punching buttons.

Today thanks to technological “progress,” it is much easier to invade privacy.

Technology is destroying us and the planet.  The pollution from technology is phenomenal. 5G itself may do us in. The destruction of privacy, identity, and freedom by the digital revolution is far beyond George Orwell’s imagination.  Insouciant humans delight in the gadgets that are turning themselves into unfree people who are under control but who themselves control nothing.

This outcome is easily seen in China where the government uses universal spying to construct for each person a social credit score.  If that person is a dissident, has bad habits, etc., that person gets a score too low to qualify for a loan, university admission, employment, etc., and becomes a non-being.  Here is Soren Korsgaard’s explanation of our future.

  1. Self-driving cars are not as near as the media think. It will be fairly easy for a car to respond to routine events, but it will be a long time before it can respond well to anything abnormal

    1. Resistance is futile, we are of the Borg. We co-opt technology and knowledge of alien goy species into our Collective through the process of “assimilation,” forcibly transforming individual beings into “drones” by injecting nanoprobes into their bodies and surgically augmenting them with cybernetic components. Of course we gave up trying to assimilate Jews along time ago.

      1. Arch, not to worry. You did see this part?
        “..and there will be a cut off age for individuals to come on to the network.”

        So it seems us old codgers are in the clear,
        assimilation wise.
        Pretty sure we can’t even beg our way in,
        have we the desire to do so.

        But there’s always the mantras,
        Sanatan to the core.

        Ohhhh the humility, eh..

  2. Before I am admonished by ADMIN for the incorrect placement of my comment as it does not appertain directly to the subject in the title above I will state that I have not choice but to place my comment here. Oh and why are additional comments to previous posts closed anyway? No need to answer I understand why and so does ADMIN but it doesn’t stop the rebukes by the controller.

    RABBI TALKS TRUTH ABOUT HITLER AND THE JEWS!!!
    https://www.bitchute.com/video/r3NQ0Gi3Wknn/

    ADMIN: Your comments are going automatically int our SPAM folder and being deleted for two simple reasons:

    (1) You are using multiple users names (= SOCKPUPPETS) and this is strictly against our rules.

    (2) You are not using our website legitimately to make genuine on-topic comments, you are using it illegitimately to post links to off-topic articles and videos. A video on bitchute on Hitler and the Jews, however interesting, is is TOTALLY IRRELEVANT to the subject matter being discussed on this site.

  3. One day we will not need this AI because Silicon Valley will fall into the Pacific Ocean and be destroyed by earthquakes with the rest of California due to the Pacific Coast Rim of Fire Fault line along the western North American Coast and Yellowstone National Park with its Old Faithful Geyser and subterranean volcano covering thousands of square miles will erupt and destroy the American Pacific Northwest at the same time.
    Then if nature does not do it, several Nuclear Bombs exploded over America’s stratosphere will cause an EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) that will wipe out all electronic devices from calculators to appliances, cars and computers etc.. The only things not affected will be carburator type cars from 1970s and before or that you have everything in a Faraday cage. In some ways I can NOT wait for that to happen to remove the evil of AI from this world! But Biblical, Quranic , Judaic, and Hinduistic prophecy must be fulfilled for that to happen!

    1. Sheesh! Aren’t we just a happy face today? (See comment below about drinking.) By the way did you hear Jesus is coming back real soon to deliver us from all this evil and as an added bonus, he’s throwing in free salvation for every believer. Such a deal! I don’t care about the bookies giving it tens-of-billions to one odds of it happening, I’m a believin’ it anyway. That way I don’t have to face reality.

  4. Meanwhile, down in the bowels of the CIA, errr, I mean Google, they’ve been taking “sky’s the limit to where no sky’s the limit has gone before.

    “Google says that its 54-qubit Sycamore [D-Wave] processor was able to perform a calculation in 200 seconds that would have taken the world’s most powerful supercomputer 10,000 years”

    Since I don’t believe everything I read ala science, I think the demons are purposely underestimating their shenanigans by a looong shot.
    Disinformation being their life blood.

  5. Not real sure the ability to make calculations has anything to do with intelligence…
    Deductions and analysis are just about finding the fact out if what evidence you think you have…
    But if we’re saying we’re handing computers the task of deducing the path to world peace, then i guess we might give that a try…
    I would imagine the computer’s first goal would be to design the perfectly functioning society…
    If society functions perfect;y all over, including correcting malfunctioning people, so that there are none, then surely there would be no cause for alarm…
    The perfectly functioning society requires a ultimate in efficient government…
    So the computer would have to design the perfect government first… Then you get the ultimate society…
    Then you get world peace and an ecologically pristine biosphere…
    In which case the first questions would be – does the perfect government operate in secret? Ever?
    I suppose that depends on whether or not you believe in the value of humanity…
    The perfect government might still lock up criminals, dysfunctionaries, unsuccessful capitalists, whatever…
    But if it were not allowed to operate in secret ever, it would have to leave the key to the jail in plain sight…
    Any Libertarian will tell you the only people who should be in jail are the ones everybody agrees on…
    Anyways, can the answer to world peace and global happiness be asked and answered as a matter of calculations?
    IF that outcome is a question of reforming and re-engineering each individual as a societal unit, can a computer calculate the perfect formula for the perfection of any and every individual?

    1. The perfect government is no government. Unfortunately, that is far to advanced a concept for the lowing goy herds to consider – Moooooo. As sheep say, “I have a choice!!! I can either munch or chew.”

      Me? I would rather we resemble a lion’s pride than a rotten Jew’s beehive.

    1. I dunno, all this A.I. stuff makes me want to drink, pass that bottle of gin over here will ya? I know a more ribald version of that saying that goes like this: “You can lead the liberal’s mind to knowledge, but you can’t make them think.” Okay so it’s not the ribald version. I guess that’s why I’m not on the season premier lineup.

  6. Yes, machines have trained us to obedient, but nobody and nothing has managed to train Alex Jones to be obedient! No sir! Emerick is right now driving around Richmond Virginia in a military tank, his head sticking out of the hatch of a military tank being a total Rebel shouting-out his opposition to the New World Order via his trusty bull-horn and he’s got the Washington joos running scared! Emerick and Trump are defeating the Joo New World Order for us!

    1. My cat is asking about the “cattied by 6.” “Why six cats?” He asks. He’s wondering if this is another one of those catty comments. Never mind, he decided he wants to go out now. Cats – and they say the Chinese are inscrutable.

  7. White men are not easily trained…. SO…. they don’t get the money say Goldman’s jews!!!

    Goldman to stop financing IPOs for companies with ONLY WHITE MALE board members!!

    Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon said Thursday that the powerful investment bank will only finance initial public offerings (IPOs) for companies that have at least one nonwhite male board member.

    Solomon said during a Thursday interview with CNBC that as of July 1 in the U.S. and Europe, Goldman “is not going to take a company public unless there is at least one diverse board candidate, with a focus on women.”

    “Diversity on boards is a very very important issue, and we’ve been very very focused on it and so we’re trying to find ways to encourage that,” Solomon told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

  8. Never mind USA……
    LONDON – Met Police to deploy 600,000 facial recognition cameras!!

    The Metropolitan Police has announced it will use live facial recognition cameras operationally for the first time on London streets.

    The cameras will be in use for five to six hours at a time, with bespoke lists of suspects wanted for serious and violent crimes drawn up each time.

    Police say the cameras identified 70% of suspects but an independent review found much lower accuracy.

    Privacy campaigners said it was a “serious threat to civil liberties”.

    Following earlier pilots in London and deployments by South Wales Police, the cameras are due to be put into action within a month.

    Police say they will warn local communities and consult with them in advance.
