~ “FINALLY!”, OR SO thought many interwar Germans. “The new chancellor has begun locking up & outlawing Socialists & Communists & their rowdy street gangs! Maybe we can have a little peace & quiet again.” Ah yes, the purge always starts out with the pesky & noisy ones. They never will be missed.

So what’s up with the current 2017-2018 rush to more internet censorship? Hint: this is NOT about pesky Alex Jones. He’s a canary in the freedom coalmine.

I said this (ITYS, exactly a year ago): Social Media Purge Ensues. And this semi-followup, in March this year: The Internet Ensilencing: Why Now? Brexit, Trump, and the uppity peasants learning what’s really going on in the world, and what their leaders & elites & celebrities are REALLY like. Can’t have that: FAKE NEWS FOR EVERYONE!

U.S. Midterms, Ahoy!

Conveniently, it’s only a few months before the all-important U.S. Midterm elections, and a referendum, as it were, on Trump. Hillary & Obama & their Democrat-Media-Internet cronies are still insanely mad & afraid of trial, still feeling the heat. GoogTwitFaceTube is now fully weaponized to control the flow of news & ideas leading up to November.

Twitter-bans, YouTube shadowbans, skewed Google searches, alt-media shut down, hidden, interfered with. It will only be getting worse. You will not  not allowed to read or watch verboten ideas, as our Masters define them.

This is a new phase in the War On ALL Of Us. The Western Establishments are deadly serious about turning the internet & social media into commercials about themselves & how great they are. This is a major move towards more totalitarianism (with a smile) in the West.

This time, these moves? As serious as a heart-attack.

~ SO THE OTHER DAY, The She-Binks was out with a friend over tea, and while they were chatting, happened to mention a certain small resort in rural Nova Scotia. She had her smrtphone with her, on the table. She hadn’t googled that place, or anything like: just spoken words.
Two days later, advertising banners for that small resort showed up on her smrtphone. She was underwhelmed. and came to mention the strange occurrence. Somebody had been dropping some eaves.

Lesson? They Are All Listening. Presume so. To EVERYTHING within earshot. To your confessions, married special-time, private business chats, secrets, dinner conversation, family fights. Anywhere these computerized phones are present, BigEar may be listening in.

Smartphones are Smart! S-M-R-T!

Our Electronic Mini-Masters?

I don’t have one– my last was a fancy flip-phone. But I presume my iPad is listening, and her smrtphone, and the two boy’s smrtphones.

Solution? Turning it off and putting it in a metal box might do the trick. Or, one of these cool RFID/ signal blocker cases… or, just not having one. The addictive little things can wreck your brain anyway, as study after study confirms. At very least, break your  smartphone addiction now, so you can have your life & brain back. And those of your loved ones.

Smartphone addiction could be changing your brain

Rats In A Maze

When you think about the brain-effects, spying, and biological effects of smartphone & cellphone technology– and the rising number of cancers which might be linked to their use– it strikes me that this is a giant socio-biological experiment with no permission or parameters, introducing many good and bad factors into daily human life, often from toddler on up. Experiment. Like on rats.

For those of us geezers raised in the pre-smartphone/ social media era, all of this is an add-on technology, which can multiply our existing curiousity, wonder, imagination, habits of being & learning & socializing. It’s a power-tool of sorts.

Quick: Example Us, Binks!

SO, for example– I’m currently reading Nigel Tranter’s Margaret The Queen. When I’m reading a book (dead tree or Kindle), I will constantly be looking up places, definitions, pictures of the places, historical summaries, art, related literature, and other interesting detail to flesh out the book. It becomes three-dimensional learning, based on my older trained & ingrained pre-digital habits.

What of the screen-addicted younger people raised in a time who have never known the old ways of curiousity, imagination, extrapolation, a love of learning and the intellect at play? I’m worried that endless music-playlists, SnapChat, InstaGram, flickering bytes and images which go by like dead leaves in a windstorm make it harder to develop those older qualities, which are not simply a “Different” form of intellectual and mental life, but the kind that is thousands of years old, and which built & sustained Western Civilization for thousands of years. Are our kids and grandkids being mentally flickered to death?

Who Did This? Not the Kids

Even if older generations find smartphones are manageable tools, it is  a false logic to assume that people raised on them will turn out likewise. It’s that same thing with TV addiction in my youth: the idiot box ate your time, gave you a lazy brain, and– it turns out– wound up aggression even as kids were passively drooling before the one-eyed God.

Smartphones & digital technology are super-TV on meth & cocaine, doing untold damage all around us, even as we look on, semi-uncomprehendingly. “Kids today”, we moan, forgetting that every society creates exactly the kids it deserves. Think about it. ~
