Considering the many turns of events we have witnessed over the last decade, the rapid rise of mass surveillance and the IOT (internet of things), it is yet another dot connecting background, evidencing that the Internet was indeed created to control Humanity.
From ARPA to DARPA. Just look at the projects DARPA is today developing and the plan comes together.
Generally people who remember the name of Licklider are still mesmerized by his accomplishment. Indeed being a leading researcher working on a worldwide mean of communication was very impressive in his time.
Joseph Carl Robnett Licklider (March 11, 1915 – June 26, 1990), known simply as J. C. R. or “Lick”, was an American psychologist and computer scientist who is considered one of the most important figures in computer science and general computing history…. He did much to initiate this by funding research which led to much of it, including today’s canonical graphical user interface, and the ARPANET, the direct predecessor to the Internet. (wiki)
But just like most cutting edge inventions, knowledge was used with the intent to harm. Because if money does not serve power, those in power cannot stay in power. That is as simple as that.
It is power that gives money its value, hence why money has no value in a voluntary society!
There is not one single discovery that has benefited man in the long run. It all starts as fairytale then after a few decades the nightmare sets in. Industrialization is still praised today by absolute meritocrats, but what for exactly when realizing how much pollution and systemic fraud are putting our civilization in jeopardy?
Being on the brink for the $79 trillion global GDP and $270 trillion asset bubble? Is it really worth it? Committing ecocides and being on the edge of a planetary bankruptcy? Is it what Life is really about?
We have to quit believing that each of our discovery are set in stone. Speculating on knowledge does not work, unless for bankers and hedge funds managers, juggling with exotic financial instruments, and their pals. Of course absolute capitalists continue to laud the system, and arrogantly pat themselves on the back. Competition creates excellence they claim. Really?
We have been misled since the 70s about the Internet. There is no freedom to expect, unless there is a mass awakening leading to the unplugging of AI for good along with the demonetization of Life. Humans have to remain in charge of their destiny.
The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) was an early packet-switching network and the first network to implement the protocol suite TCP/IP. Both technologies became the technical foundation of the Internet. The ARPANET was initially funded by the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) of the United States Department of Defense. (WIKI)
ARPANET – The First Internet
ARPAnet – the team behind the internet
You may know that the Internet was, in fact, created in Arlington in the 1970s. The technology was developed by the Defense Department’s Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA), now known as DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency).
