The Great Experiment V.2.0 By Walrus


"The establishment of our new Government seemed to be the last great experiment for promoting human happiness." – George Washington, January 9, 1790

"If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever. ” – George Orwell.

We are about to participate in "The Great Experiment V. 2.0" in my opinion. This decides which of the Georges, Washington and Orwell, is right. My money is on Orwell for a reason I will tell you later.

The shape of what is coming to America is already clear; a technology driven tyranny that will make the Chinese leadership green with envy. Siri, Alexa and other unknown AI demons will read, listen and watch everyone, everywhere, always, not just for impure thoughts, let alone acts, but for even the suggestion that an unapproved thought process is occurring.

The initial outcome of such surveillance will be your appearance on lists. The "No fly" list, soon to be followed by the "No train", "No credit card", "No employment", "No drivers license", "No phone", "No internet access", "No Education", "No voice", "No Welfare" and of course the "No firearms" list. I call this process Human deplatforming.

The checks and balances have been replaced with (Bank) checks and (Bank) balances. The richest men in the world are overseeing this experiment which is going global quicker than you can say "Google". They are enabled by the University academics who as Raymond Asquith once observed are always prepared to provide an intellectual justification for vile acts if the price is right and journalists will laud said acts to the heavens as decent, moral doings if they want a paycheck next week from their masters.

The Legislature is bought. The Executive is bought. The Supreme Court are ninnies. The only thing standing in their way is soon to be Ex President Trump. I don't like his chances of becoming a rallying point, they are going to go after his children.

Oh Yes, but you have guns you say. Well those pasty faced, namby, pamby West Coast transgender wokeists, as you call them, may not be able to shoot straight but they have drones, swarming drones, robots and God knows what else in the way of weapons. They have satellite data and  almost perfect intelligence regarding your behaviour. They don't have to shoot accurately, they have machines to do that. They can and will commit unspeakable acts of murder and destruction before they turn off the monitor and jog off for a Latte. After all if you are not with us you are a domestic terrorist aren't you? There is no middle ground.

And you enabled all this yourselves. When you applauded the Patriot Act. When you cheered at the vilification of muslims, "sand niggers", "rag heads". When you justified the use of torture. When you masturbated watching targeting videos of drone strikes on Afghans.  When you credulously watched fantasies on television about "Iran's nuclear threat". When you listened and watched uncritically (or perhaps with secret pleasure) as the media lied to you breathlessly about the President disporting himself on a urine soaked bed with Russian hookers. Where was your sense of outrage then? Every time you deny the humanity and human rights of anyone, no matter how vile they be, you are destroying your own rights.

I have no sympathy with the left wing Liberals because they prove that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing and they are about to be dismayed to discover what they have done. The unattractive and socially inept nerds of both sexes  are acting out revenge fantasies against  Alpha males. None of them bothered to read enough to understand what happens to protest "movements" – what they morph into, how they are capture and corrupted. Silly them.

Too late folks. You are about to participate in Great Experiment Version 2.0 – can the American people avoid what is being prepared for them and recover the human happiness that George Washington  envisaged? My money is on Orwell, my reason? Because I figure it's a win/win for me. Either I am consoled by my winnings or if I lose, I can go to my grave happy in the knowledge that the spirit of George Washington is still guiding us.

I hope for the best but suggest that we are not likely to enjoy the next few years and neither will the left wingers when they finally see what they have wrought.

    At least George Washington acted under his own name.
    George Orwell was a name Eric Arthur Blair conjured and adopted because it gave him political cover and commercial success.
    [not] Artemesia
    By the way — David Goldman has been mentioned several times in the last few days.
    In 2019 he spoke at the Westminster Institute in Great Fall, VA. He described the many means of tracking its citizens employed by the Chinese government and, if I recall correctly, displayed an image of the “thousand points of” citizens that CCP tracks from an electronic central command post.–as-the-worlds-leading-superpower-e3euan/a-abmk3h
    imo Westminster tilts neoconish. It’s not certain whether Goldman’s audience was appalled or envious.

    interesting rant walrus… thanks for sharing… i share your conclusion, but i don’t relate to how you got to it… this part i really question – “applauded the Patriot Act. When you cheered at the vilification of muslims, “sand niggers”, “rag heads”. When you justified the use of torture. When you masturbated watching targeting videos of drone strikes on Afghans.”
    in fairness to the ordinary joe in the usa, i don’t think what you are saying here is true.. i could be wrong.. i don’t live in the usa, but while the msm might have appeared this way, i think it is out of kilter with the ordinary person on the street… maybe, just maybe i am really naive…

    At least one internet service provider is now blocking facebook and twitter citing both’s lack of concern for the 1st Amendment. I hope many other providers follow suit soon.

    Breathless hyperbole aside, what is your point? All of us in the U.S. are bad, and we asked for the worst, and now we are going to get it because we deserve it? All of our hope and dreams were embodied by Donald Trump, who came to save us from our sins, so we crucified him?

    ” Because I figure it’s a win/win for me.”
    If memory serves you got rich helping China industrialize by outsourcing lots of Western manufacturing capability. Remind us again of the value of free trade, open borders, and making sure China never loses face.

  8. Eric Newhill says:

    This has been a long time in the making. A good friend of mine was into this whole matrix thing back in the early 90s. He completed hisPhD and went to work for the DoD/DARPA. He was trying to sell me on what a wonderful world it will be; computer chips I peoples’ heads, the entire planet wired together. We’d debate this topic into into the night over Turkish coffee and cigarettes. He just couldn’t conceive that it would be used for evil, let alone that it was evil in its very nature, regardless of who controlled it. IMO, it was all about being a part of power and control intelligencia. That has a strong appeal for some people that I don’t understand. I think such psychologies have always been in the human mix, but technology is now giving them an opportunity that never existed before. I suspect the tech giant leaders are much like my friend as much as they are profit seekers. My friend now lives far out in the country side on a ranch, having left the DoD a few years ago. He wants nothing to do with any of it. Something happened at DARPA that left him very scared.

  9. akaPatience says:

    Silly me. I can remember happily thinking in 1984 that Orwell turned out to be wrong.

  10. coboarts says:

    None of this came from anyone’s base. It has all reigned down from above. Both sides are all in. Trump and Jones set their bases up to be identified and decreed terrorists. There is no place in the sphere of ideas. It is all in service to the regime. The regime will last forever, at least one thousand years – right?

  11. dsrcwt says:

    I was in high school when I read “A Man for All Seasons”, and this exchange has stuck with me since then (over 30 years )
    “William Roper: “So, now you give the Devil the benefit of law!”
    Sir Thomas More: “Yes! What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?”
    William Roper: “Yes, I’d cut down every law in England to do that!”
    Sir Thomas More: “Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned ’round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws, from coast to coast, Man’s laws, not God’s! And if you cut them down, and you’re just the man to do it, do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I’d give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety’s sake!”

  12. Deap says:

    In the 70-80’s, “sex was free” “do your own thing” until AIDS and other rampant STD’s made the “Singles Revolution” realize following your bliss was not so free spirited after all. Same with “free internet”, it was fun until is not. Not is now. Now it is downright scary. Circle the wagons and drop out os “social media”. It is not a friendly place any longer. It is a fatal attraction.

  13. Deap says:

    All quite biblical, once one steps back far enough. Evil, sin, false gods, end times, grace, redemption, one true light. I think we have seen this play before. Pretty much like every other world’s religion also postulated.
    How do we live? And then we die. We perhaps only really quibble about the existence of an afterlife, but the wheel of life plays out pretty much the same no matter what personal statement of faith one adheres to.
    Turn, turn, turn …there is a purpose for every season. We are certainly in the fallow stage right now, but with careful tending a new crop will spring forth even more nutritious than the last.
    And the devil still gets the hindquarters.

  14. Walrus says:

    JM Galvin, my point is that at least as early as 9/11, very very few people had either the brains or cojones to stand up and fight back against the gradual but continuous assault on human rights by our own elected Government. We are now about to receive collective punishment for that.
    I don’t know whether the majority will fight back when they see what is coming or passively accept it. Based on experience to date they will just roll over.
    As for hyperbole, I don’t think so and I am mindful of the pitfalls of what I term “failure of imagination”. The swamp and its denizens are very frightened people. Perhaps already they have passed the PNR. This “domestic terrorism” meme followed by second amendment strictures has the power to start a civil war.

  15. Fred says:

    “This “domestic terrorism” meme followed by second amendment strictures has the power to start a civil war.”
    We are already in a civil war, or did you miss the reign of destruction wrought by the left through its executive orders and shock troops terrorizing civilians and burning things down in multiple cities?

  16. JM Gavin says:

    I get that part of your point…what I am asking you is what you propose that people do about this? The U.S. is entering into the next part of what I call the “Post-Constitutional Phase” in our decline. Breathless hyperbole isn’t the answer.
    Aren’t you Australian, or am I confusing you with someone else?

  17. Ishmael Zechariah says:

    ‘It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.’ Pay heed to the great Yogi! There were those who wrote off the Ottoman Empire in 1918. Ask Lloyd George how that worked out. McCain declared that “Russia was a gas station masquerading as a country” in 2014. McCain is gone, Obama is gone, Russia is still here. Let us see if Ms. Nuland can fXXX Russia- she did not do such a good job w/ the E.U. Maybe she has forgotten how. Crimea is Russian; can she take it back? I, for one will be happy to see her attempt it. If you search for ” the Green Belt Initiative” and “Mild Islam” you will not find much. Wikipedia will term one a “conspiracy theory”. It was no such-Zbigniew Brzezinski might tell you the truth if you ever meet him where pots need no fire to boil. Both gambits failed. Iran is still up and Syria is coming back. The islamists of Turkey are starting to see the walls closing in on them and they are scared. Now they are nationalists…
    I would not write off the Deplorables so soon; they have behaved admirably until now-and might stop behaving soon. If so, look to your horses. Technology cannot win if the fighters do not quit; do ask the izzies. There might be hard times ahead but I,for one, have faith in the power of the Patriots of the USA. My vote is for them.

  18. Walrus,
    Your technology driven tyranny still has a lot of back allies and secret underground passages where cyber anarchists still silently prowl. One such hacker seems to have managed to obtain and archive 80 terabytes of Parler user data before AWS deep sixed it. It started last Wednesday when a young Austrian hacker using the name crash override (the Jolie character in “Hackers”) started archiving Parler traffic from the Capitol assault. Hearing that AWS was going to drop Parler on Sunday midnight she went into overdrive and enlisted some hacker cohorts to get as much data as possible. Luckily for her, the companies providing the security certificates for Parler dropped them earlier than that. Parler was left defenseless. All manner of data including biographic info, messages, images and image location data has been downloaded, archived and made public. Once the data is converted into a readable format, the world will see it. Same principle as Wikileaks. Parler users are shitting themselves over this development.
    The name crash override caught my eye not because of Angelina Jolie or the movie, but because I once went by the handle of crash_1nterupt back in the days I was revere engineering x86 assembly code and conversed with cagey Russians and East Europeans over FIDONet. It was a golden age of digital technology and culture.

    Never heard any American use the term “Sand Nigger.” “Rag head?” Yes. Seems to me that Texans used the term for the Apache and such other folk.

    Didn’t George Orwell go on to work for the British Govt.’s propaganda department?
    Perhaps the only antidote to creeping centralization is to adopt the practices of tribal people. Bitcoin plus a secure autonomous messaging system should keep the empire at bay for a while…
    Colonel – I can confirm that I have been called a sand nigger in England, though it was in jest.

  24. Fred says:

    “Luckily for her, the companies providing the security certificates for Parler dropped them earlier than that.” Sounds like another breach of contract. Not that it matters much, they’ll just write a check some years into the future.

  25. JohninMK says:

    Walrus, not sure where page 149 is.
    All I would say is that the US State is the target to be avoided at this stage almost at any cost as it is without doubt the most hazardous. I suspect that directly pulling the tail of a Government should always be a last resort.
    However, over to the left the large tech companies are setting themselves up as the front line in a serious hate campaign. Their vulnerability is their share price which is in part based on their data processing ability. Anything that impacted their data transmission capacity could hit that hard and their fiber must be pretty vulnerable. But I am sure that they had this aspect covered when they planned their actions over the last couple of weeks.

  26. English Outsider says:

    Walrus. Great article. And also of course the comments. I’d have refuted them all a decade or so ago simply by saying “What are you worried about? You have the vote, don’t you? Why not use it?”
    Can one say that any more? I’ve tried every diabolus advocatus argument I can think of – there are very many, especially in this time of Covid – and cannot avoid the conclusion that the recent American vote was dubious. And now, very reluctantly, am forced to the conclusion that we’ll never know how dubious. Never mind those voting machines. The postal vote is not safe.
    Nor is the more old fashioned system we have in England. The postal vote is the weak point here too. And creeping in – to a negligible extent so far, I believe, but it happens apparently – is the practice of photographing one’s completed ballot paper. So even in the privacy of the voting booth there’s a way of checking that the vote that’s been paid for or forced has been cast as promised.
    And even ten years ago my argument – that we have the vote so why don’t we use it – would have been naive in any case. The politicians know as well as we do that the solid blocks on either side of any argument aren’t going to be shifted whatever nonsense they put out. But there’s a segment in between who vote pretty well on a whim. The show the politicians and the media put on is directed at that segment. We get the politicians that easily influencable segment decides we get.
    Fiddling around with voting systems isn’t the solution. Proportional representation or first past the post doesn’t do much in the face of election fraud or heavy duty media persuasion of the undecided.
    Then there’s the simple arithmetic of voting in a society split many ways. In a homogenous society the result of an election is the sum of a host of disparate decisions on disparate issues. My farmer friends and neighbours will choose a party that promises them viable farming. My prog friends and neighbours – yes, I have many. White Flight is not only an American phenomenon – will vote on quite different considerations. It’s a free for all jumble and from that emerges a decision we are pleased to call democratic.
    Put in the middle of that a solid minority bloc that votes almost exclusively on one issue and the result of the free for all jumble is determined by those often quite small minorities. A group that only votes one way will determine the result when in among a group that votes all ways.
    So for all these various reasons voting no longer answers the question of how “We the people” can control those who govern us. Maybe it never really did, but we were happy in the belief it did even if that belief was always mostly illusion.
    That illusion stripped away, what is the answer? I don’t believe insurrection or mob violence is. Even if it were to be possible in today’s heavily controlled society it always ends up with worse than one started with. Nor is retreating to some safe hideaway, Tyler style. There aren’t any.
    A comment here recently posited that there was no answer. We are condemned to further travel on the road downhill until, finally, we reach the bottom. Maybe build something from the ruins. Don’t like that answer much either. I expect a better life for my children. Not more of the same until it all collapses.
    So, Walrus, I’m forced back to that old con, the vote. In 2016, in England and in the States, there were votes that said as clearly as votes can “We’re not having it any more.” Both votes now seemingly rubbed out of history. But only seemingly. Did we expect victory with the first engagement?

    I see two problems with the Silicon Valley hype. This data was supposed to allow advertisers and political parties to provide tailored messages to move the electorate. They couldn’t move at least 75 million smellies, even with the msm casting aside all pretense of objectivity. If I were an advertiser paying big bucks to Google and Facebook, I would seriously wonder if I was getting anything for my money.
    Now they are throwing the smellies off their platforms, so how are they going to monitor/nudge them.

  29. Deap says:

    A very early internet saying stuck with me – a warning from posters who could retaliate with flame wars …back then in the web’s first trial-run days. Circa 1990’s.
    Do not poke sticks at dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup. A more poetic expression of censorship, but censorship none the less. Circa 1990’s.
    Same as today- censorship using the threat of violence. Same protection-extortion racket third level gangsters so fondly use. Or the gun-slingers at the OK Corral. Fight back or fight forward. Are they our only two choices?

  30. Barbara Ann says:

    I’m confident the spirit of the other George will win the day, so I’ll happily take your bet. What use would my money be anyhow in the dystopian Hell you describe?
    “Luckily for her..”. You don’t think Parler was a honey pot for Right-wing refugees from other SM all along? This ‘hack’ seems to have been a highly effective way to both identify and ‘incriminate’ a whole lot of Trumpists in one go. I looked at Parler myself, but got no farther than them asking for my phone number.

  31. srw says:

    Here’s a thought after watching the mob storming the Capital. If they had tried that at Offutt AFB near me they would most likely have been shot as has happened in the past. Why the difference? Are planes more important than the members of Congress?

  32. Deap says:

    Parler demands a cell phone number – that rules me out. No cell phone. I had no intention of using their site, just a protest sign-up to increase their numbers.

  33. Mark K Logan says:

    My selection for dystopian fantasy is Vonnegut’s “Player Piano”. Seems significantly more plausible. Trump as the one thing standing between “1984” and us? No. We must find a new Messiah.

    C’mon man! The military does not secure the Capitol.

  35. A. Pols says:

    The American people will just roll over? Maybe they will, but their having done so to date probably has much to do with their having received sufficient swag to keep their grumbling down to a low rumble. But we did have a peek this summer at what could happen. The riots, though ostensibly all about BLM, were more Antifa using BLM as a pretext to run wild in the streets and had among them many disaffected white punks (the 3 punks shot by Rittenhouse were all convicted felons, convicted of antisocial crimes) and generally unattractive women who have in common a general tendency towards resentment and antisocial attitudes and behaviors. let the flow of money dry up and general upheaval may come to pass and it won’t be in the service of positive change. That much I’m sure of. By the way I really appreciate your posts on this blog.

  36. Fred,
    Parler depended on a free trial version of Okta’s user authentication platform. That was a monumentally stupid move. They had no contract to be breached. Okta shut off access to this trial version of their service as soon as they found out on Saturday. This was their announcement:
    “We were notified that Parler was using a free trial of Okta’s product and we have terminated Parler’s access to the Okta platform. While we support organizations across the political spectrum, our platform will not be used for threats of violence and illegal activity.”
    Barbara Ann,
    I doubt Parler was a honeypot. If it was set up as one, that means John Matze, Rebekah Mercer and Dan Bongino are undercover libs out to destroy Trump, the Trumpers and the Q freaks. You best not trust anybody in a MAGA hat. They’re probably all out to get you.

  37. Jim Buck says:

    Maybe the future always belongs to the omega types, rather than the alphas? The Drake Equation posits a evolutionary sieve which winnows out armed and manly civilisations, before such hombres can shoot-up the rest of the cosmos. Perhaps the rest of the cosmos is like everything we here hate: latte drinking, effete anthropologists, into probing prohibited parts of the body. Abductee reports seem to bear that out: greyish skin, puny torsos, over-amped foreheads, probes.
    Could it be that those guys don’t just cut through our skies, but also interfere in politics down here? Skinny, nerdy, bastards may be trying to engineer us into some kind of socialist space federation:
    Other dupes of these critters may be on our side, yet not realise how the they are being manipulated:

  38. Fred says:

    So they won’t have a contract suit in that matter. That does not negate the fact that once the monopolists got going they coereced all the suppliers of Parler to cancel service to them. That’s the power of monopolies. They are crushing people by political viewpoint, the politicians are happy to let corportations do what government is forbidden to do. They will come for them last – Trump is jsut the first of many politicians who had better toe the Comucapitalist line or else. Just ask Jack Ma.

  39. turcopolier says:

    “When you masturbated watching targeting videos of drone strikes on Afghans.” Got any proof of that?

  40. Walrus says:

    Col. Lang, No, breathless hyperbole, but I have had to coax a naked recruit with his loaded rifle off his barracks roof in the middle of the night. He was one of those “I didn’t join to learn military discipline, I joined to kill people!” types that the Psychs normally weed out.
    There are such things as military onanists. They often fantasize about being in the services and sometimes act out or pretend to have been places and done things. It seems to be a teenage or young adult thing. Mostly harmless.
