The 21st century has been completely dominated by new technologies. broadband internet, cell phones, gadgets and more gadgets. Let's face it, most of us love all this tech stuff. However, along with the tech used by ordinary people we have also seen a startling rise in the use of technology by state actors, corporations and criminals to do things we don't want and can't control: Wide-spread hacking, ransom-ware, identity theft, our personal data floating in the cloud, with frequent data-breaches harvesting the data of millions of people at a time. Governments using facial recognition and other forms of surveillance to track our every move. Businesses tracking us on and off line, gathering every shred of data and storing it forever and a day. Eavesdropping by trusted corporations using devices we have purchased from them to spy on and record our private conversations and activities - even in our bedrooms! While 21st century tech has had its up-side, it has been a killer when it comes to individual rights and privacy. Essentially, those are effectively gone.
Technology issues dominate the news, and they are so frequent and often so weird the public doesn't know what to think of them. In genetics, you see articles like a baby with three biological parents, genetic experiments involving injecting human DNA into animals, and all manner of mad-scientist headlines like this. An example is the picture to the right, which is a screenshot of the first 7 headlines at drudgereport[dot]com this morning. As you look at the headlines you often see a match-up between tech-crazy billionaires who, unfortunately, are the people bringing in the future, and massive violations of your rights, your humanity and your dignity. For example, in the "End of Civilization" article, Elon Musk comments on his vision of the future of humanity:
I find it interesting that the billionaire elite are now coming right out with their opinion of the human race: "we are very dumb" says Elon Musk. That's why you need his Neuralink - so you can have a hole drilled in your head and a BMI (brain machine interface) surgically tied into your brain, so you can interface with the coming "AI." Will that make you smart - or will it make you a slave?
On one level all of this looks very random, and therefore confusing. However, look closer and it becomes crystal clear. We are already at a point where the groundwork has been laid and the players controlling the levers of the future are busy bringing in the Darwinist world they believe in. Compare their vision to the prophetic picture of the end of the world presented in the Bible and the two visions are coming into focus as one and the same future, directly ahead of us. It is purposeful. The elite are manifesting the antichrist spirit, essentially replacing God, setting themselves up as the masters of Creation.
The elite have literally wanted to take over the world ever since the tower of Babel, with successive attempts by the empires of history foretold in advance by the prophet, Daniel. However, total global domination has always been beyond their grasp and therefore unattainable to them, until now. It is 21st century technology that is tipping the scales in their favor, and they are spending trillions to create a global technology platform from which they can completely control the human race. They have a schedule for bringing this in. It is called "The 2030 Agenda" which has already been ratified by the member nations of the UN. Yes, we are only about a decade away from a technocratic system of total control of humanity. Last week I presented a video entitled: "Building the Beast." This video sets out a fairly comprehensive picture of the 2030 plan as it applies to technology, and shows the progress that has been made on the plan since 2015 to the present. This is moving faster than anyone could have imagined! The video is still posted on the homepage at tsiyon.net, and can be viewed by all members, including free members.

What does all of this mean for humanity? Simply this: every person will have to chose whom they will serve. The choices are the tech-gods who fancy themselves as masters of Creation, who will rule the dystopian future just ahead, or the Son of God, Yeshua Messiah, Who created the natural world, gave His life to save it, and Who is the rightful Master of Creation. "You cannot serve two masters" He said. Every person on earth will be forced by circumstances to choose which master they will serve. When the Son of God walked the earth 2,000 years ago, He proved His claim to the Creation by exerting absolute authority over everything. He is "Lord of All" and did what we call "miracles" which are not miracles to Him, but are simply examples of His total control over the world that He created. When He was with us He manifested control over everything, the likes of which modern science cannot match. At our online meeting tonight we will consider some of these amazing manifestations of His Divine authority and power, as recorded in John chapter six.
Join ustonight at tsiyon.net, at 8 pm cst, for this encouraging live meeting. A showdown is coming, and Yeshua will win!
Editor's Note: Loss of anonymity, privacy, and personal freedom are on the rise, as the values of the technocracy are being forced upon the masses. Here is how they are doing it right now.
Silicon Valley is building a Chinese-style social credit system
In China, scoring citizens’ behavior is official government policy.
U.S. companies are increasingly doing something similar, outside the law.Reprint: https://www.fastcompany[dot]com/90394048/uh-oh-silicon-valley-is-building-a-chinese-style-social-credit-system
Have you heard about China’s social credit system? It’s a technology-enabled, surveillance-based nationwide program designed to nudge citizens toward better behavior. The ultimate goal is to “allow the trustworthy to roam everywhere under heaven while making it hard for the discredited to take a single step,” according to the Chinese government.
In place since 2014, the social credit system is a work in progress that could evolve by next year into a single, nationwide point system for all Chinese citizens, akin to a financial credit score. It aims to punish for transgressions that can include membership in or support for the Falun Gong or Tibetan Buddhism, failure to pay debts, excessive video gaming, criticizing the government, late payments, failing to sweep the sidewalk in front of your store or house, smoking or playing loud music on trains, jaywalking, and other actions deemed illegal or unacceptable by the Chinese government.It can also award points for charitable donations or even taking one’s own parents to the doctor.
Punishments can be harsh, including bans on leaving the country, using public transportation, checking into hotels, hiring for high-visibility jobs, or acceptance of children to private schools. It can also result in slower internet connections and social stigmatization in the form of registration on a public blacklist.
China’s social credit system has been characterized in one pithy tweet as “authoritarianism, gamified.”
At present, some parts of the social credit system are in force nationwide and others are local and limited (there are 40 or so pilot projects operated by local governments and at least six run by tech giants like Alibaba and Tencent).
Beijing maintains two nationwide lists, called the blacklist and the red list—the former consisting of people who have transgressed, and the latter people who have stayed out of trouble (a “red list” is the Communist version of a white list.) These lists are publicly searchable on a government website called China Credit.
The Chinese government also shares lists with technology platforms. So, for example, if someone criticizes the government on Weibo, their kids might be ineligible for acceptance to an elite school.
Public shaming is also part of China’s social credit system. Pictures of blacklisted people in one city were shown between videos on TikTok in a trial, and the addresses of blacklisted citizens were shown on a map on WeChat.
Some Western press reports imply that the Chinese populace is suffocating in a nationwide Skinner box of oppressive behavioral modification. But some Chinese are unaware that it even exists. And many others actually like the idea. One survey found that 80% of Chinese citizens surveyed either somewhat or strongly approve of social credit system.
Here are some of the elements of America’s growing social credit system.
The use of social media is an extension of the lifestyle questions typically asked when applying for life insurance, such as questions about whether you engage in rock climbing or other adventure sports. Saying “no,” but then posting pictures of yourself free-soloing El Capitan, could count as a “yes.”
PatronScan helps spot fake IDs—and troublemakers. When customers arrive at a PatronScan-using bar, their ID is scanned. The company maintains a list of objectionable customers designed to protect venues from people previously removed for “fighting, sexual assault, drugs, theft, and other bad behavior,” according to its website. A “public” list is shared among all PatronScan customers. So someone who’s banned by one bar in the U.S. is potentially banned by all the bars in the U.S., the U.K., and Canada that use the PatronScan system for up to a year. (PatronScan Australia keeps a separate system.)
Judgment about what kind of behavior qualifies for inclusion on a PatronScan list is up to the bar owners and managers. Individual bar owners can ignore the ban, if they like. Data on non-offending customers is deleted in 90 days or less. Also: PatronScan enables bars to keep a “private” list that is not shared with other bars, but on which bad customers can be kept for up to five years.
PatronScan does have an “appeals” process, but it’s up to the company to grant or deny those appeals.
UBER AND AIRBNB
Airbnb—a major provider of travel accommodation and tourist activities—bragged in March that it now has more than 6 million listings in its system. That’s why a ban from Airbnb can limit travel options.
Airbnb can disable your account for life for any reason it chooses, and it reserves the right to not tell you the reason. The company’s canned message includes the assertion that “This decision is irreversible and will affect any duplicated or future accounts. Please understand that we are not obligated to provide an explanation for the action taken against your account.” The ban can be based on something the host privately tells Airbnb about something they believe you did while staying at their property. Airbnb’s competitors have similar policies.
It’s now easy to get banned by Uber, too. Whenever you get out of the car after an Uber ride, the app invites you to rate the driver. What many passengers don’t know is that the driver now also gets an invitation to rate you. Under a new policyannounced in May: If your average rating is “significantly below average,” Uber will ban you from the service.
WhatsApp is small potatoes in the United States. But in much of the world, it’s the main form of electronic communication. Not being allowed to use WhatsApp in some countries is as punishing as not being allowed to use the telephone system in America.
WHAT’S WRONG WITH SOCIAL CREDIT, ANYWAY?
Nobody likes antisocial, violent, rude, unhealthy, reckless, selfish, or deadbeat behavior. What’s wrong with using new technology to encourage everyone to behave?
The most disturbing attribute of a social credit system is not that it’s invasive, but that it’s extralegal. Crimes are punished outside the legal system, which means no presumption of innocence, no legal representation, no judge, no jury, and often no appeal. In other words, it’s an alternative legal system where the accused have fewer rights.
Social credit systems are an end-run around the pesky complications of the legal system. Unlike China’s government policy, the social credit system emerging in the U.S. is enforced by private companies. If the public objects to how these laws are enforced, it can’t elect new rule-makers.
An increasing number of societal “privileges” related to transportation, accommodations, communications, and the rates we pay for services (like insurance) are either controlled by technology companies or affected by how we use technology services. And Silicon Valley’s rules for being allowed to use their services are getting stricter.
If current trends hold, it’s possible that in the future a majority of misdemeanors and even some felonies will be punished not by Washington, D.C., but by Silicon Valley. It’s a slippery slope away from democracy and toward corporatocracy.
In other words, in the future, law enforcement may be determined less by the Constitution and legal code, and more by end-user license agreements.
