Pandemic: It’s Big Tech’s Time To Shine (Darkly) – Activist Post

Cashless payment, virtual reality, internet censorship, telepresence, robotics, artificial intelligence; these technologies have received massive funding and development from Big Tech in the last decade.

As lockdowns progress, social isolation becomes the “new norm”, and face-to-face human interaction is restricted, the emergence of a pandemic virus will give Big Tech the chance to shine darkly on all of us.

There was already a trend toward social isolation enabled by advancing technology and social media before the virus emerged. Big Tech is more than willing to give the world another nudge into a digital Plato’s cave.

Trump recently announced that Google is already acting as an extension of the U.S. government’s response to coronavirus.

Big Tech is also “fighting misinformation” about the coronavirus by censoring online content.

All major Big Tech companies issued a joint statement Monday that said:

After Facebook’s failed attempt to launch its digital currency Libra, Big Tech has another opportunity to push a new cashless system as calls to ban cash intensify.

A recent article from Forbes said that virtual reality offers a solution to travel bans:

Virtual reality (VR) offers a solution to the travel bans companies all over the world are facing and the restrictions on large gatherings that are being imposed by governments.

The fight for a pro-human future is now more important than ever. At the very least, the seeds of a pro-human world need to be sown now so that when new systems emerge after a potential collapse, humanity has a chance.

Clinton-Yeltsin docs shine a light on why Deep State hates Putin (Video)

Bill Clinton and America ruled over Russia and Boris Yeltsin during the 1990s. Yeltsin showed little love for Russia and more interest in keeping power, and pleasing the oligarchs around him.

Then came Vladimir Putin, and everything changed.

Nearly 600 pages of memos and transcripts, documenting personal exchanges and telephone conversations between Bill Clinton and Boris Yeltsin, were made public by the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Dating from January 1993 to December 1999, the documents provide a historical account of a time when US relations with Russia were at their best, as Russia was at its weakest.

On September 8, 1999, weeks after promoting the head of the Russia’s top intelligence agency to the post of prime minister, Russian President Boris Yeltsin took a phone call from U.S. President Bill Clinton.

The new prime minister was unknown, rising to the top of the Federal Security Service only a year earlier.

Yeltsin wanted to reassure Clinton that Vladimir Putin was a “solid man.”

Yeltsin told Clinton….

“I would like to tell you about him so you will know what kind of man he is.”

“I found out he is a solid man who is kept well abreast of various subjects under his purview. At the same time, he is thorough and strong, very sociable. And he can easily have good relations and contact with people who are his partners. I am sure you will find him to be a highly qualified partner.”

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss the nearly 600 pages of transcripts documenting the calls and personal conversations between then U.S. President Bill Clinton and Russian President Boris Yeltsin, released last month. A strong Clinton and a very weak Yeltsin underscore a warm and friendly relationship between the U.S. and Russia.

Then Vladimir Putin came along and decided to lift Russia out of the abyss, and things changed.
