Your conventional wisdom is manipulated by precisely crafted information pool. Your conscience of reaching a logical conclusion is distorted through forged data bombardments. And, your freedom is hijacked, through purposefully designed use of artificial intelligence.

Every human being on this planet earth is being watched, recorded, analyzed and targeted! Virtually no one is spared from ‘Their’ surveillance.

Your conventional wisdom is manipulated by precisely crafted information pool. Your conscience of reaching a logical conclusion is distorted through forged data bombardments. And, your freedom is hijacked, through purposefully designed use of artificial intelligence. You are manipulated to vote for, or choose from, or act, or buy, ‘Their’ choice.

They call it ‘The Second Machine Age.’

The age of computer … more so, the artificial intelligence, abbreviated as AI.

Deep knowledge, Big data analysis, Data pool, Voter targeting, Digital marketing, Consumer manipulation, Deep learning, …

You name it.

Wish to go through: who is doing what, where, how, when, to whom, and Why?

And, who is benefitting what? Who is losing? What is at risk? In what way?

Believe by seeing, and ponder …

Watch this documentary film:

In The Age of AI, produced by Frontline.

(Viewers discretion may require: at work are perspectives.)

‘They’ are the Big brothers and/or sisters, who own huge resources. Things turn more serious when immense resources are utilized by the state entity to manipulate and control their citizens’ actions and minds. However, they pretend to be working for the benefit and security of the people themselves.

Correlate the ground reality with political slogans given out by ‘People’s Representatives,’ especially, in vibrant democracies!

Experts are worried that democracy, individual freedom, human rights, privacy, and the like, are in danger. Seriously, it would not be a surprise if these terms become virtually things of the past!

This documentary film would help understand the ‘Real Politik’ at work.

The Great Hack – The Cambridge Analytica, produced and directed by Jehane Noujaim and Karim Amer.

Enormous investment and progress is being made in big data analysis and targeting, for getting elected to powerful public offices, for enmassing more wealth, creating mass hysteria, everything they need to become more powerful, to get wealthier, to tighten the grip around the people, or consumer, everyone of their interests …

And what Big Businesses are doing?

This book offers an appropriate answer:

A comprehensively composed analysis by Shoshana Zuboff in her recent book ‘The Age of Surveillance Capitalism.’

The dark forces of global politics pose fundamental challenges to the democratic system. In the era defined by the struggle against terrorism and other nefarious actors, what is less often acknowledged or analyzed, however, is the effect of technological change on politics.

Want to know what exactly Deep State is? And what the Deep State is doing? For what purpose?

This book would be of ‘some’ help:

Permanent Record by Edward Snowden.

Your every activity, even your state of feeling is being traced, analyzed and hunt.

Power is the ultimate reality. And, money can buy everything, including State Authority!

Agree?

After watching, reading and analyzing all these audio-visual and print materials, can you find any way out?

Any way to escape?

Take care…
