All Shall Be Assimilated!

THE ABOVE is a creepy & loooong commercial on YouTube about some rich Mexican tech-boss, saying that 40 million people in Mexico don’t have the internets.

Mr. Mexi-Tecnho-man visionary states this like internet = clean water, food, a place to live, faith in God.

These poor deprived people are obviously cut off from all goodness. And YouTubes.

When he says the “40 million without” thing, I say “Good for them!” No hate, no fake news, vile and violent images, Candy Crush & Trump lovers & bashers, fads and group-think madness, no portable surveillance and tracking, no unhealthy radiation, no easy government and corporate intrusion into every single life, no internet addiction.

The Wonders of Technolog– Wait…

J.L. Baird with his invention, the 'Televisor'
The Baird ‘Televisor’. View of the Scottish electrical engineer John Logie Baird and his invention, the ‘Televisor’. The televisor was the first commercially available television set. The 30 line, mechanical scanning image did not take up the entire screen, but was in fact only 6cm high and 2cm wide. The televisor allowed enthusiasts to watch periodic broadcasts from the Baird/British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) studios between 1929 and 1932. Baird’s mechanical scanning system was replaced in 1937 by Marconi/EMI’s electrical scanning system. Baird also pioneered colour, stereoscopic and big screen TV, as well as ultra- short-wave transmission. Photographed in 1927.

When naive old Scotsman John Logie Baird finally invented a workable TV, he was certain this was an unlimited good– education and enlightenment for all! Access to the wisdom and truth of the ages! Social mobility for everyone who wanted it!

Baird could not conceive of “The BoobTube”, porn, tv-addiction, shopping channels, bubble-gum sitcoms, 500 channels and almost nothing on.. or perhaps he’d have spent the rest of his days wrecking his and other inventor’s efforts to prevent the mass-media madness he would help unleash into every home, nook, and cranny.

Pimping The Webs

Who is helping sell this to Mexico? CHUBB, the giant U.S. Insurance Company. Go figure. Their utopian spiel?

“40 million people in Mexico are not connected to the Internet. Yet. Altan Redes is working to make that happen. In collaboration with multiple financial partners and the Mexican government, they are building a shared wireless network across the country. This will bring the Internet to people in Mexico who have never been connected before. It will provide endless opportunities for continuing education, economic advancement, and a stronger civil society.”

.. and the sun will be brighter, and the grass greener, and the food tastier, and bunnies and flowers will be breaking out all over. Paging John Logie Baird! “..endless opportunities for continuing education, economic advancement, and a stronger civil society.”

Oh yes, things will be different when the internets swamp Mexico– political dissent, social organization, fighting the news-monopolies, radical activism, along with all the addiction and ugliness which will pour into every home computer and smart-phone eating up billions of hours and souls and minds. And the tender technofascist mercies of Google, FaceBook, and Amazon.

Utopia. An awesome idea.. as long as you leave human nature out of the account. ~
