I’m going to begin this piece with a few quotes. First, two from “The Father of Public Relations,” Edward Bernays, in his 1928 book entitled, Propaganda.
“If we understand the mechanisms and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing it In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”
“We are dominated by the relatively small number of persons who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”
Now a few from an Israeli historian and adviser to Klaus Schwab of the WEF, Yuval Noah Harari, taken from videos of some of his recent speeches on the direction that transhumanism is taking.
“Data might enable human elites to do something even more radical than just build digital dictatorships. By hacking organisms, elites may gain the power to reengineer the future of life itself, because once you can hack something you can usually also engineer it.”
“Now in the past, many tyrants and governments wanted to do it, but nobody understood biology well enough, and nobody had enough computing power and data to hack millions of people. Neither the Gestapo nor the KGB could do it, but soon, at least some corporations and governments will be able to systematically hack all the people. And if indeed we succeed at hacking and engineering life, this will be, not just the greatest revolution in the history of humanity, this will be the greatest revolution in biology since the very beginning of life 4 billion years ago. For 4 billion years nothing fundamental changed. Science is replacing evolution by natural selection with evolution by intelligent design. Not the intelligent design of some God above the clouds. But our intelligent design, and the intelligent of our clouds… the IBM cloud, the Microsoft cloud, these are the new driving forces of evolution.”
