The vast majority of the American people, media, and politicians in the 2016 Presidential Elections are living in a past tense reality based on a faulty perception of politics and the nation. The 2016 American Presidential race is a “Pokémon Go” election that is taking place in “augmented reality” where “social bots” motivate people to vote for one candidate or another by manipulating their moods via social media.
Pokémon Go is an augmented reality game where a person follows virtual characters or objects that appear on their smart phones through real world environments. In the first two trading days after the game was released on the market the stock of Nintendo, the games manufacturer, rose $7.5 billion.
The latest psychological research tells us that voters make choices based on emotions rather than logic and facts. In other words, voters are not making up their minds because of political debates they are watching on the cable news networks where statistics and other hard facts are being discussed. Across all educational levels people are voting on the basis of emotion.
For over a century experts in persuasion have understood that it is the manipulation of emotion that influences an election. However, with computers, algorithms, social media, and the internet, the ability to analyze and influence emotions has exploded. For example, the latest data suggests that the manipulation of emotions can also affect voter turnout. If tech companies like Google, Apple, Twitter, or Instagram manipulate emotions to increase positive feelings among people who are Democrats or Republicans, that can produce greater enthusiasm about the election. Depending upon which party the enthusiasm is generated in, that candidate will have far greater turnout. In the same way, if social media is used to generate negative emotions about a candidate, that candidate will get far lower voter turnout.
There are many ways tech companies, political parties, social movements, and governments can manipulate emotions through the Internet. The term “emotional contagion” means spreading strong emotions to millions of people through social media, emotions such as anxiety, anger, happiness, enthusiasm, depression, despair, hopelessness, peace, and euphoria. A targeted demographic can consist of any group of people such as those in a specific geographic location, a religious group, political group, ethnic group, or by age, sex, or any number of categories.
By manipulating search engines or rankings or linking negative articles or blocking positive information about a particular candidate, negative or positive emotions can be created in a person using the search engine. Another way emotions can be manipulated in potential voters is through the news feeds generated by tech companies which appear in people’s social media accounts like Google, Facebook, AOL, Apple, Twitter, Instagram, etc. By bombarding voters with either negative or positive news stories, images, videos, or emails the public can be programmed about how to feel about a particular candidate, religion, political issue, social issue, or the economy. There have been allegations by some that tech companies like Twitter, Apple, Google, Instagram and others are attempting to defeat Donald Trump.
“We do not merely destroy our enemies; we change them.” George Orwell, 1984.
Just like in Pokémon Go, millions of people are not seeing the real world; they have entered a socially engineered “augmented reality” where politicians have been transformed into Pokémon Go virtual characters that can be followed in the real world. There is a growing awareness that the world of the Internet is not real, but a virtual world or “augmented reality” generated by some kind of hidden elite. It is this Technocratic Elite who are using technology like Social Bots that expose private information on any individual and specifically social media users for the purposes of tracking, control, or blackmail. Social Bots can be used to destroy individuals and grassroots organizations that challenge the official politically correct dogma.
For example, people who use blogs and social media to expose the dangers of GMOs or Big Pharma or advocate for any other cause can be destroyed by Social Bots pretending to be real people. Social Bots can be used to artificially enlarge the numbers and influence of one group over another. An example of this would be the collusion of the cable news networks and certain tech giants which only show close up photographs or videos of Donald Trump speaking at rallies where the real attendance ranges between 15,000 -30,000 people. In contrast, there are many Hillary Clinton rallies where only 1,000 – 3,000 people show up, but that visual evidence of low turnout is concealed from the audience. This is an attempt to diminish Trump’s power and influence and create a false impression in the minds of the public.
Social Bots are infiltrating target populations of people who are completely unaware that they are being manipulated by things like social media rankings and analysis of the number of people who listen, watch, click, download, post, or read things. There are numerous mainstream media outlets and social media platforms which are being artificially propped up with false numbers, rankings, and ratings designed to increase the flow of advertising revenue and take away revenues from alternative media.
BOTS is short for software robots. CHATBOTS operating on algorithms can pretend to be human and hold conversations, make posts, write comments, and infiltrate blogs, websites, Facebook pages, and internet news sites by the millions and discredit, tear down, defame, attack, and attempt to destroy any group or individual by making comments, or writing reviews or posts or replies in an attempt to destroy individuals and groups who choose to reject groupthink.
Anyone who holds any viewpoint, liberal, conservative, or whatever, if they are intellectually honest, should comprehend that the right to think freely, speak freely, and act freely is in grave danger. For the moment, the Technocratic Elite will use a corporate controlled media and internet to promote viewpoints that benefit their interests. But the moment they find that promoting those viewpoints is no longer of benefit to them they will turn and destroy them. They will do it with new technologies that go way beyond Social Bots. They will literally electronically erase memories and replace them with artificial memories that further their long-term agenda. All these activist groups, politicians, activists, celebrities, journalists, bloggers, and others who temporarily are benefiting from social media algorithms will soon find that they are nothing more than what Lenin called “useful idiots.” Largely because they do not read history or philosophy and have divorced themselves from the great religious texts from Mankind’s origins, they do not understand the nature of Mankind and where we are going.
C.S. Lewis, the author of numerous fantasy books like The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, along with science fiction and books on Christian apologetics wrote in That Hideous Strength that “Despair of objective truth had been increasingly insinuated into scientists; indifference to it, and a concentration on mere power, had been the result…Dreams of the far future destiny of man were dragging up from its shallow and unquiet grave the old dream of Man as God.”
The end game is revealed by the United Nations’ lust for ever more data on every individual on planet Earth. The United Nations, which is dedicated to creating an all-powerful world socialist government, wants data on the private sector and is cultivating partnerships with the big social media companies. The purpose of gathering data on every ordinary individual is for control. The Technocratic Elite or what Aldous Huxley called The Scientific Dictatorship wants information because information represents the power to control every person on Earth. The name of the game is to maintain the illusion of democracy and choice while manipulating every human thought, emotion, belief, and memory.
This is not just about this political election. This is about the future of Mankind and where we are going. If you think Pokémon Go is just a game and Social Bots are just the latest technology developed to control people’s thinking, like an evolutionary jump from the television commercial, you don’t get it yet. Pokémon Go is about programming people to accept “augmented reality” or a virtual world to replace the real world. Social Bots are already starting to be driven by artificial intelligence…and none of this is random. The Technocratic Elite want to become “god-kings,” as I explain in my book, A Prophecy of the Future of America 2016-2017. If you embrace Social Darwinism, where might makes right and there is no such thing as absolute right or wrong, than you have to take it to its next logical conclusion. Those who have the “might” and the power have the evolutionary right to rule, control, and dominate by brute force. This is what the elite believe, and since there is no such thing as right or wrong, it is inevitable that because you have the power, you can do whatever you choose to do. What most people do not understand is that there exists an elite who are in the process of firmly establishing themselves as the absolute rulers of planet Earth. Whether they choose to attempt that through the smokescreen of illusion and smoke and mirrors, or whether they will attempt it openly with brute military force, death and destruction is their choice.
This is about the final consolidation of their power as the rulers of Earth, with the rest of Mankind becoming their slaves for the purpose of producing, building, and maintaining what they want. They are constructing the Hive Mind, using technetronic control to make millions of people serve them. But the time will come when the human slave race is obsolete.
Already, the so-called protected occupations like journalism, medicine, and other fields are being replaced by computers, robots, and eventually by cyborgs and androids. In addition, a global economic system where no one can buy or sell without a microchip implant is almost here.
The manipulation and control of Humanity through science and technology is being finalized all around us. If you are still capable of thinking outside of your programming, you will notice there exists a door out of this “augmented reality.” The door is called Truth, but of course many people cannot see that door because they have decided it does not exist. There is a difference between augmented reality and final reality. Augmented reality has been altered through technology or some other means. In that reality there is no door. Final reality is the reality that really exists, whether or not you and I choose to believe it. Final reality is final because it stands apart from our belief system. So which is the real reality? Is it augmented reality? Is it the reality you choose to create? Or is it final reality? All I know is I saw a door and walked through it and there was something very real on the other side of it.
In my new book, A Prophecy of the Future of America 2016 – 2017, I expose the global economic system and the future of America in light of Bible prophecy.
