Is a Social Credit score System Coming for Us?

A Social Credit score Rating System Is Piloted in Bologna, Italy

The town administration of Bologna, Italy, is piloting a program that brings the beast of the Fourth Industrial Revolution straight to the residents. It is an early reiteration of Klaus’ Schwab’s Fourth Industrial Revolution, the honey moon, so to talk — so it involves the residents wrapped in present paper, with balloons, prizes, and get together language. However make no mistake: beneath, there may be merciless man-eating machine that wishes to mine your knowledge and management your habits!

So, what precisely is occurring in Bologna? The administration is “digitizing” their relationship with the residents. For starters, they’re launching an app — with a catch — that may present an interface to get entry to varied native companies. With out saying it, the they’re implementing the “digital governance” facet of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Quoting the Italian supply:

“We’ll give residents companies based mostly on their wants – says the Mayor – and it will enable us to personalize their expertise. Folks will have the ability to discover all the pieces the administration will do on their cellphones or computer systems. The bodily branches, nonetheless, is not going to disappear.

“We’ll preserve a ‘bodily’ help for all individuals who don’t use the online, particularly the older ones,” assures Lepore [Mayor of Bologna]. However the objective is laptop literacy that leaves nobody behind.”

If we learn this announcement with harmless eyes, it seems like one more initiative that the bureaucrats are launching, maybe benevolently, to maintain up with the occasions and with the buzzwords. And in a really perfect world — a world stuffed with flowers, butterflies, rainbows, and innocent, caring bureaucrats — there could be nothing improper with including on slightly further comfort through expertise.

Expertise might be very useful if completed proper, and if it involves us with out Trojan horses. However alas, in the meanwhile, we do not reside in such a world!

We reside in a world the place Klaus Schwab and his buddies and masters are preventing with one another over who will get to eat essentially the most peasants! We reside in a world the place those that have already got nice energy are in search of much more energy — and that world is rapidly going again to the feudal-time psychological requirements (whereas, satirically, preserving the fashionable requirements for the degrees of business poisons in all the pieces round us.)

So far as Trojan horses, the Bologna municipal app truly comes with a social credit score system! The “virtuous residents,” doing good issues, similar to utilizing public transport, preserving their vitality use low, and many others., get “perks,” like factors in gaming. For these factors, they are able to get reductions or prizes or entry to further companies. Good Malicious program, proper?

“Among the many most progressive interventions is the good citizen pockets [emphasis mine]. ‘The pockets of the virtuous citizen,’ explains Bugani, who had labored on the challenge with the Raggi [Virginia Raggi, Mayor of Rome from 2016 to 2021] administration (in Rome at the moment the platform is energetic in an experimental section). The thought is much like the mechanism of ‘a grocery store factors assortment,’ because the councilor himself factors out.

‘Residents will likely be acknowledged in the event that they separate waste, in the event that they use public transport, in the event that they handle vitality effectively, if they don’t incur sanctions from the municipal authority, if they’re energetic with the Tradition Card.’ Virtuous behaviors that may correspond to a rating that the Bolognese will then have the ability to ‘spend’ on prizes, similar to reductions, cultural actions and so forth.”

In different phrases, it is the “good” face of digital management. Good, for now. However we must be clear: we’re wanting on the digital management of all the pieces we do in the long run of that journey!

Built-in Citizen Relationship Administration in Rome

The Italian information supply mentions that this method is already in experimental use in Rome, Italy. In March 2022, Salesforce printed the next announcement:

“Salesforce, the worldwide chief in CRM, at the moment introduced that the Municipality of Rome has chosen Salesforce to create an Built-in Citizen Relationship Administration platform …

Leveraging Salesforce Service Cloud and Advertising and marketing Cloud will ship omni-channel self-service capabilities, seamless collaboration between native authorities departments, and empower residents to obtain the data they want sooner by AI-powered chatbots.

The launch of the MyRhome platform is one other step on the Municipality’s path to making a ‘good metropolis’ [emphasis mine] — an ecosystem of private and non-private stakeholders serving residents wherever they’re”.

After all! We will not anticipate any much less from Salesforce, on condition that Marc Benioff is on WEF Board of Trustees!

Additionally, bear in mind the well-known “lockstep situation” doc launched by the Rockefeller Basis and the International Enterprise Community? The doc that the Rockefeller Basis says at the moment has been misinterpreted by the conspiracy theorists — as a result of the nice and virtuous Rockefeller Basis completely did not imply to foretell what truly occurred in 2020 (and likewise in all probability had nothing to do with eugenics)?

Properly, preserving in thoughts that “lockstep situation” doc, right here is Peter Schwartz, the Senior Vice President of Strategic Planning at Salesforce and “an internationally famend futurist and enterprise strategist, specializing in situation planning and dealing with firms, governments, and establishments to create different views of the longer term …

Previous to becoming a member of Salesforce, Peter was co-founder and chairman of International Enterprise Community [emphasis mine].” Within the phrases of George Carlin, “It is a large membership, and also you ain’t in it! You and I usually are not within the large membership!”

Their Motive for the “Digital Governance” Mannequin? It is the Knowledge, Silly!

At first, it is the information (to coach our future boss, the robotic) — after which, more and more, it is primarily about management!

Let’s take a look at a really “attention-grabbing” 2017 write-up on digitizing governments on the World Financial Discussion board’s web site. It talks in regards to the significance of gathering knowledge to construct and prepare their beloved AI. It additionally complains about the truth that loads of the information stored by governments simply sits there in paper format and, dammit, isn’t making itself helpful to the sacred objective of coaching the AI! Not good, they are saying, what a waste!

Subsequently, to “open” that knowledge to the AI beast, they need the governments to digitize their companies — sorry that was the quiet half — what they really say is that the residents are craving these digital authorities techniques as a result of, who does not know that the elimination of privateness is … good for us?

The World Financial Discussion board additionally means that the governments ought to develop new authorized frameworks and knowledge administration techniques to make knowledge obtainable without cost. What an important concept! In 2017, the World Financial Discussion board mouthpieces had been extra upfront that at the moment, so it’s helpful to learn precisely what they stated again then:

“Want for knowledge is rapidly changing into a central theme that applies to all facets of our evolving digital society. A living proof is the sector of synthetic intelligence, which guarantees to revolutionize society (governments included). Corporations similar to Google, Fb and Microsoft are utilizing AI-related strategies to coach computer systems to acknowledge objects in images and perceive human language.

It’s attainable to coach computer systems to carry out these troublesome feats as a result of we now have the large portions of knowledge that’s required. The identical applies to all types of machine studying, good manufacturing and each different tech-driven pattern shaping the longer term. They’re all reliant on knowledge, and are solely pretty much as good as the information they crunch. On this context, knowledge has been described as the brand new oil.'”

“Right now, a big majority of the world’s knowledge is within the fingers of the non-public sector … The rest of the worldwide knowledge sits in authorities fingers, principally saved in paper format, or legacy techniques. To maximise the societal advantages of the information age, a brand new motion began selling open knowledge.

Whereas authorities knowledge is all knowledge or data that authorities entities produce or gather, making it open refers to publishing and sharing knowledge that may be readily and simply consulted and re-used by anybody with entry to web with no charges or technological limitations.

Most of this knowledge at present stays locked up and proprietary (non-public property of corporations, governments and different organizations). This severely limits its public worth.

Knowledge is now a brand new social good and governments might want to consider some type of knowledge duty laws that guides the non-public sector and different knowledge homeowners on their duties within the knowledge age: the responsibility to gather, handle and share in a well timed method [emphasis mine], in addition to the responsibility to guard.

This laws is required over and above a authorities’s personal open and large knowledge administration techniques, and might want to cowl all knowledge stakeholders (no matter possession or different governing guidelines).”

“As soon as a transparent authorized framework is in place, governments have to develop, and rapidly grasp, a brand new core functionality: knowledge curation … Most governments around the globe nonetheless battle with legacy databases which are incompatible with one another, and work towards any type of data-sharing or data-driven design. Legal guidelines and rules are nonetheless of their infancy and struggling to deal with the tempo of change …”

“Governments should assessment an unlimited variety of legal guidelines and rules [emphasis mine]. From harmonizing and implementing privateness rules and defending towards data-breaches, to rules that guarantee internet neutrality and knowledge flows. Right now’s debates over the way forward for large knowledge are based mostly on the belief that the web will stay a sequence of open networks by which knowledge simply flows.

Some international locations have begun to harden their web techniques, and the idea of internet neutrality is unsure. If the web turns into a community of closed networks, the total potential of huge knowledge is probably not realized.”

“Governments should additionally enhance their capabilities with regards to citizen engagement to successfully and actively have interaction with each suppliers and customers of knowledge. This requires governments to create a tradition of open knowledge [emphasis mine] – one thing governments are beginning to do with numerous levels of success.

The extent of citizen engagement isn’t the everyday authorities communication perform, however a extra open, horizontal, and fast-paced G2C platform.”

Should, should, should. So I’m guessing, nationwide sovereignty is a sore thumb in the best way of our aspiring Davos masters as a result of of their minds, they’ve already determined that they need our knowledge (however not theirs) to be brazenly obtainable, and that they do not need any questions from the peasants.

A tangential remark: As a musician, I’m remembering with some bitterness how Massive Tech was pushing for “open knowledge” and “open entry” again within the day, promoting it as “free expression” and “democracy,” and consequently — since shopping for music grew to become retro — musicians misplaced a lot of their revenue … and no person cared!

I’m glad that now at the least, much more persons are realizing what liars whose Massive Tech corporations are, and what liars they’ve all the time been all alongside, once they had been speaking about “free expression”! Take a look at them now, with their “free expression”! They’re fairly blissful to censor! So it is solely our knowledge that they need to be open — not our opinions!

And Right here Is One other Curiosity From the World Financial Discussion board

They printed this text in 2018:

Could robots do better than our current leaders

“The Fourth Industrial Revolution is predicted to wreak havoc on labour markets, with AI and robots changing numerous white-collar jobs. One job class largely excluded from scientific experiences is that of presidency leaders, regardless of being one of the crucial critiqued, scrutinized and ridiculed jobs of all.”

“Nevertheless, commentators from international locations as various as India, the UK, New Zealand and Japan have began to recommend that robots as authorities leaders might drastically enhance decision-making, by being a lot much less irrational and erratic than their inherently flawed human counterparts.”

After freaking us out, the World Financial Discussion board writers chuckle and allow us to proceed being ruled by human politicians, at the least for now:

“In the interim, it appears neither attainable nor optimum for robots to exchange authorities leaders, regardless of the clear imperfections displayed by the latter group … In the end, a extra sensible and fascinating situation is one through which AI and automation are neither rivals nor substitutes to people, however instruments that authorities leaders can have interaction successfully and typically defer to, as a way to make higher, fairer and extra inclusive choices.”

Phew, it is virtually like … , when a road robber first tells us to present him your entire cash however then agrees to take solely half! Such a kindly, beneficiant robber! We’re so fortunate!

World Financial Discussion board’s “Agile Nations”

The 2017 WEB write-up about digital governance reads like a “want listing” and a blueprint for the governments to behave upon. (I suppose, given the bribing and coercive energy of the individuals who’ve composed the want listing, their want listing had a robust probability of changing into the bureaucrats’ blueprint the second it was written.) So in 2020, seven nations received collectively and signed an settlement to basically implement it. A quote from “Agile Canada“:

“In November 2020, seven international locations signed on to the Agile Nations Constitution, establishing Agile Nations as a discussion board for international locations to collaborate on creating a world regulatory surroundings through which innovation can thrive.

Member international locations embrace: Canada, Denmark, Italy, Japan, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, the UK. The Organisation for Financial Cooperation and Growth (OECD) and the World Financial Discussion board (WEF) additionally take part as observers.”

“Precedence areas for cooperation are: knowledge and communications, transportation, medical prognosis and therapy, clear expertise, authorized {and professional} companies, pro-innovation regulatory approaches.”

And this is from the Organisation for Financial Co-operation and Growth:

“The COVID-19 pandemic has wrought financial and social disruption worldwide. As individuals and companies deal with restoration, governments should be certain that innovation, which can energy financial development and remedy the world’s most urgent social and environmental challenges, isn’t held again by outdated rules [emphasis mine].”

Translation from Orwellian to English: “We wish your knowledge, together with your medical and biometric knowledge — and we wish it now. Take a look at how beautiful our AI is … my valuable! (Sorry could not assist it!) The so known as nationwide legal guidelines and rules intervene with the velocity at which we are able to come up with your knowledge.

Like we stated, we wish it now, and so we might very very similar to it so known as nationwide legal guidelines and regulation received changed with a digital framework that we write and that we are able to replace any time we like! Feels like a good suggestion or what? Who desires some funding? You understand what you should do to get that funding, do not you?” The quote continues:

“As a part of the event of the OECD rules on Efficient and Innovation Pleasant Rule-Making within the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the Organisation for Financial Cooperation and Growth (OECD) and the World Financial Discussion board (WEF) have been co-operating to look deeper into the interlinkages between regulation and rising applied sciences …

Ministers from Canada, Denmark, Italy, Japan, Singapore, United Arab Emirates and United Kingdom introduced their plan to steer the world in fostering accountable innovation and entrepreneurship.”

“As well as, in help of the mission of the Agile Nations, representatives of Fb additionally supplied to launch a name for analysis – overseen by an unbiased steering committee of specialists within the area of legislation, regulation and entrepreneurship – into what approaches to rulemaking (e.g. regulatory sandboxes, coverage prototyping) had been the best for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

As this initiative continues to develop, different companies will likely be inspired and invited to co-sponsor this initiative, and to enterprise their very own concepts to help the work of the Agile Nations.”

“In sum, the Agile Nations Constitution units out every nation’s dedication to making a regulatory surroundings through which new concepts can thrive. The settlement paves the best way for these nations to cooperate in serving to innovators navigate every nation’s guidelines, take a look at new concepts with regulators and scale them throughout the seven markets.

Precedence areas for cooperation embrace the inexperienced financial system, mobility, knowledge, monetary {and professional} companies, and medical prognosis and therapy.”

“Scientific Administration”

The World Financial Discussion board’s agenda is a wierd combine of non secular fundamentalism and “scientific administration.” As I wrote earlier in an article in regards to the thoughts of a technocrat, scientific administration is a “methodology of business optimization developed by Taylor within the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. The essence of his methodology was excessive fragmentation and compartmentalization of the manufacturing course of.”

It required taking a posh course of, breaking it down into quite simple duties, timing every job, optimizing it to the utmost utilizing the stopwatch, after which assigning every of these easy duties to completely different employees, whereas insisting that the employees ought to solely use the pre-optimized motor patterns and work as effectively as attainable. Below scientific administration, there was no room for employees’ creativity.

And whereas Taylor and Ford meant the scientific administration methodology for the aim of streamlining industrial manufacturing, the Davos charlatans goal to handle our complete lives, and justify it with some bogus “public good” and “group values”!

Whose “Group Values” Are These, Anyway?

Right here is the elephant within the room: It is the Davos charlatans — and I need to repeat the phrase “charlatans” as a result of that is who they’re beneath their financial institution accounts and their vital speeches — who’re writing our so known as “group values”! They’re attempting to latch onto our pure social instincts and weaponize our good instincts towards us!

They need us to be unassuming, responsible “good residents” who put a restrict on our carbon footprint and on the variety of youngsters we now have — whereas they, the self-appointed “guardians” of the world, fly non-public jets to local weather change conferences and have as many children as they rattling like!

And this is the factor. There’s nothing improper with actual group values! We’re social creatures, and it advantages us to reside collectively effectively. Nevertheless, group values are solely pretty much as good because the individuals who suggest them — and group values flip right into a pumpkin the second somebody like Schwab touches them!

As Good because the Folks

Let’s even neglect about Schwab for a second and suppose how group values work in precept. We could say a small village. If the individuals dwelling in that village are principally healed and grounded, they’ll increase their youngsters to hunt knowledge and reside effectively with others — from the guts, not from the letter.

Nevertheless, if the individuals within the village have been abused, and abused, and abused once more — and by no means healed — then even the genuine group values in that village might find yourself being anxious, inflexible, and detrimental to freedom.

Damage individuals have a tendency to show their youngsters that life is supposed to be joyless. They have an inclination to slap their youngsters’s wrists for eager to be free, saying it is a egocentric folly. Damage individuals harm individuals! And at one level, the inflexible guidelines might need been an invention of a crafty predator — however after extended abuse, individuals might need internalized them and handed them on to their youngsters! (And have a look at how many individuals within the West sincerely adopted the faith of the Masks … they’ve internalized it!)

One other instance: in my beginning homeland of Russia, they’re many small communities the place the individuals carry a lot harm and disappointment that the gloom is nearly palpable within the air. I’m saying this from private expertise, and with a lot ache and love for my individuals. I ran away from that gloom and immigrated to America as a result of the “group values” felt too joyless!

So with regards to Klaus Schwab and buddies, they’re solely as highly effective as we allow them to. I imagine that that therapeutic ourselves and {our relationships} is on the high of our priorities listing within the battle towards transhumanism — as a result of something we do from a spot of affection has extra energy than something we do from the place of worry!

Why Will Transhumanism Fail?

This technique, the complete man-eating beast, will ultimately fail, I’ve little doubt — however we do not know when, and we have to keep humble, courageous, and really affected person. The merciless beast might fail very quickly, or it could take some time to fail. I believe it depends upon how rapidly we bear in mind to narrate to one another in spirit, with love and blissful humility — as an alternative of labeling and judging one another based mostly on ancestry, politics, or variations in opinion.

I believe it depends upon how rapidly we understand that the liberty taken away from the individuals all over the place, all through historical past, has been as existentially valuable as the liberty that’s being taken away from us proper now — as a result of there isn’t a elementary distinction between us and different individuals, and by no means has been.

We, right here and now, are coping with the identical dilemma that many previously have handled, and a few have died from. Spirit is spirit, and freedom is freedom! And I believe that after we bear in mind to face collectively and honor one another and one another’s love and one another’s braveness, we’ll be undefeatable. No Klaus Schwab can do something to us if we refuse to betray our fellow human beings for any purpose.

And eventually, non secular readability will prevail, and this transhumanist beast, the fruits of abuse, will fail. The explanation why it’ll fail is straightforward. We’re not machines, and after we are managed like machines — more and more so over the centuries — our souls bleed badly. After we are managed like slaves, we undergo unbearably — and struggling, whereas it isn’t a most popular means of acquiring readability, nonetheless mysteriously results in non secular readability. Life places no struggling to waste!

And when the ache will get insufferable, and there may be nowhere to go however towards our coronary heart of hearts, our souls scream to the skies, and we pray for solutions with no conceitedness and no speaking factors, after which one thing magical occurs. When our worry and ache grow to be an excessive amount of however we maintain pushing, we develop our souls to the place options present up out of nowhere.

After which we cry, giggle, and pray extra for therapeutic, and extra options present up, and we glance again and we instantly know why we needed to undergo, and why the sweetness was value it. After which we begin dwelling effectively as a result of, in spite of everything this struggling, we lastly do not forget that all the pieces on the planet, everything-everything, has all the time been about love — and that dwelling effectively with one another is not only nice but in addition very sensible.
