the intrepid Whitney Webb on US coronavirus Techno-Tyrranny


‘Techno-Tyranny: How the U.S. National Security State is Using Coronavirus to Fulfill an Orwellian Vision’, Whitney Webb, May 16, 2020, strategic-culture.org.  (CC w/ attribution)  Given that this tome of an exposé (about 5700 words) is CC, and that the puzzle pieces are so inter-related, I’ll post it all, and thank Ms. Webb profusely for it.  I’ve added a few more bolds to hers.  The graphics didn’t come through, but Webb’s text explains them.

“Last year, a U.S. government body dedicated to examining how artificial intelligence can “address the national security and defense needs of the United States” discussed in detail the “structural” changes that the American economy and society must undergo in order to ensure a technological advantage over China, according to a recent document acquired through a FOIA request [124 pg. pdf ].

a PSA: Green candidate Howie Hawkins has a running mate


Via email from his campaign yesterday:

As our movement continues to gain traction, we came to realize a few things:

  1. The evidence speaks for itself. People have grown tired of having their needs ignored by a corrupt establishment and are rallying to the Green Party to help build a fair and sustainable future for our country.
  2. The issues that our campaign is championing truly are the issues that resonate most with the American people. The support that we have received and the stories that you have shared with us only solidify that this movement towards an Ecosocialist Green New Deal is exactly what the country needs to navigate these trying times in our history.
  3. It was time to announce a running mate for Vice President.
    The ideal running mate had to be someone with experience on the front-lines of these issues. They had to be someone with the ability to communicate with language and conviction that others can understand and believe. Fortunately, she answered the call!
