Dump Davos #1: Data Colonialism & Hackable Humans
Posted on January 31, 2021 Author Whitney WebbComment(0)
In this video series investigating the people and agendas of the World Economic Forum, Whitney Webb and Johnny Vedmore analyze a recent speech given at Davos by Israeli “futurist” historian Yuval Noah Harari that exposes the WEF’s agenda for the “useless class”, the rise of exploited data colonies, and the creation of an internal and external surveillance state.
Professor Harari at 56:40: “The major danger we face is the rise of digital dictatorship which will monitor everyone all the time. This danger can be stated in the following simple equation, which could be the defining equation of life in the 21st century:
B x C x D = AHH
where: B = biological knowledge, C = computing power, D = Data, AHH = Ability to Hack Humans.
If you know enough biological knowledge, and you have enough computing power and data, you can hack my body, my brain, and my life. You can understand me better than I understand myself. You know my personality type, my political views, my sexual preferences. my mental weaknesses, my deepest fears and hopes. You know more about me that I do myself. You can do this to everyone. A system that understands us better than we understand ourselves can predict our feelings and decisions, can manipulate our feelings and decisions, and can ultimately make decisions for us.
In the past, many tyrants and governments wanted to do this, but none of them, not the Gestapo, Stasi, or the KGB, etc. had the biological knowledge, computing power, and data to do this.
But soon a handful of both corporations and governments will be able to systematically hack all the people. We humans should get used to the idea that they are no longer mysterious souls. We are now hackable animals.
Johnny Vedmore: With mRNA vaccines, this is how this process starts.
Whitney Webb: Often when they start publicly announcing new technologies, they’ve also had it years beforehand. Algorhithms are ultimately going to be in charge of this system.
There are obvious tie-ins to pre-crime, pre-thought crime, predictive policing, and predictive health care here.
Harari: The power to hack human beings can be used for good purposes, like providing good health care. If it falls into the hands of a modern Stalin, this could lead to the worst, totalitarian system.
The higher you are in the hierarchy the more closely you will be watched in this total surveillance system.
Whitey Webb: Harari makes it clear that this surveillance system is to be used to monitor both a person’s external and internal life.
Obviously, this technology divides society into two classes, indeed, he is referring to two different species; the elite and everyone else.
Harari: Finally, technology might disrupt not just our economy and politics and philosophy, but also our biology. In the coming decades, AI and biotechnology will give us God-like abilities to re-engineer life and even to create completely new life forms. After 4 billion years of organic life shaped by natural selection, we are about to enter a new era of inorganic life shaped by intelligent design…. OUR intelligent design. A new driving force for the evolution of life.
And in using our new divine powers of creation, we might make mistakes on a cosmic scale. In particular, governments, corporations, and armies are likely to use technology to enhance human skills that they need like intelligence and discipline but neglecting other human skills like compassion and artistic sensitivity, and spirituality. The result might be a race of humans who are very intelligent but lack compassion, artistic sensitivity, and lack spiritual depth.
