Technology’s Holier Than Thou

I have written many articles about the destructive impact of technology sold to innocent greater-fools as the best thing since sliced bread.

I told you so

As a former technologist, I love technology and have deep insight into how technology bullies its users with controls it, not its audience, deems appropriate. I issued many warnings dating back more than twelve years, for which, in the reverberation of Silicon Valley’s echo chamber, I caught a lot of flack:

In 2020:

Big tech versus big politics

I told you so, India bans 59 apps

In 2019:

Waking Up At The Wheel Of Destruction

Now, finally, the government is waking up. President Joe Biden made mention of the impact of social media companies, and now European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen just announced wanting to enact new legislation to curb technology companies.

Interestingly, Tim Cook, guilty of running Apple’s own grand scheme of technocratic bullying, chiming in by also attacking social media, and in no uncertain terms its king, Facebook. Never mind Apple deploying some pretty nefarious constructs of its own to influence its audience, developers and creative people, with fixed pricing schemes, excessive royalties, and squeezing small vendors out of their livelihood.

Tim better not be preaching to the choir, because he is next on the shortlist of getting reviewed from top to bottom. And then there is the latest on Robinhood.

Fundamentally Incompatible

At the highest normalization of truth, all technology companies today create totalitarian monisms of absolutism incompatible with human relativity’s innate plurality. Meaning, the systems created by technology hold the expansion of humanity hostage with manmade manacles of make-believe incompatible with the fractal of human expansion needed to evolve.

By default, technology companies produce the opposite of improving human adaptability to nature’s entropy the most intelligent species on earth must build. For no totalitarian monism can encircle the innate plurality of humanity.

I suggest you heed my advice next time I write something because, unlike the companies above, my interests are not to produce another scheme from which I would profit but to use nature’s first-principles to adhere and abide by nature’s gameplay that determines the excellence and survival of the human species.

Take your time, read up on the articles above to learn how to begin to curb technocratic bullying from the start. It is yet another reason we need to deploy a new operating system for humanity I have been working on for the last ten years.

The sign of an intelligent nation is its willingness and ability to reinvent itself, upstream. Let’s inspire the world with new rigors of excellence we first and successfully apply to ourselves.
