Progressive View Rejects Zuckerberg’s ‘Metaverse’

MetaverseTom Valovic – When I heard that Facebook had changed its name to Meta, I was reminded of the aphorism: “A leopard doesn’t change its spots.” But in this case, there’s more to the name change than meets the eye: a strategic “vision” of the future and an overly powerful, profit-hungry corporation’s misguided attempt to shape human destiny.

Facebook’s new moniker is shorthand for metaverse, a major new technology and culture shift that Big Tech is trying to force feed anyone who uses the Internet. And in the words of a friend who works for another Big Tech giant, this new direction is “terrifying.” Continue reading “Progressive View Rejects Zuckerberg’s ‘Metaverse’”

Metaverse: Blurring The Lines Of Reality

The Metaverse is coming…It just needed 5G’

Leo Hohmann – Welcome to the ‘metaverse’: A strange new world where the same billionaire globalist elites who destroyed the lives of millions using a pandemic as their main battering ram, will  now try to entice them into a fake utopia created by AI and computer algorithms.

Facebook announced this week it is changing its name to “Meta” and while that might sound like just another corporate rebranding worthy of a yawn, it’s anything but, says Patrick Wood, an expert on technocracy and transhumanism. Continue reading “Metaverse: Blurring The Lines Of Reality”

The Truth About Facebook [Video]

facebookAlexandra Bruce – The Truth Factory suspects that something deeper is afoot with the recent de-platforming and demonetization of numerous accounts belonging to Conservative pundits on Facebook. She takes a look at the history of Facebook to find out what is going on.

She reminds us of a DARPA project called LifeLog, which tracked users’ browsing, chat and banking histories – plus the books and magazines users had read, plus television watched – plus geolocation!

Does this sound like anything you’ve ever used? Like Facebook? She notes that DARPA’s LifeLog project was canceled on February 4, 2004 – on the very same date that Facebook was founded. Continue reading “The Truth About Facebook [Video]”

Mark Zuckerberg and the New Progressive Plutocrats

zuckerberg Allum BokhariSilicon Valley inspires utopian thinking. After revolutionising everything from the media to communications to taxi services, progressive elites in the Bay Area are now eyeing up government and politics, wondering how they can “disrupt” both. Will American politics survive their delusions of grandeur?

The latest billionaire buffoon is Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook. Having noticed that Jack Dorsey is out-doing him in the realm of leftist political whackery, the social media kingpin has begun to wear his progressivism on his sleeves. Facebook’s users — far more numerous than Twitter’s — are sure to suffer.

Recently, we reported that Zuckerberg reprimanded a number of Facebook employees who crossed out “Black Lives Matter” slogans and replaced them with “All Lives Matter” on the company walls. You’d think that a liberal like Zuckerberg would appreciate a message of discrimination being replaced with a message of inclusiveness, but I suppose that sort of thinking went out of fashion with Martin Luther King, Jr.

Mark Zuckerberg

Simon Black – First things first: Congratulations to Mark Zuckerberg.

And no, not for the obvious. The Zuckerbergs are brand new parents. And while that’s exciting, it’s far from unique. New babies are born every second.

But what’s far from commonplace is that Mark Zuckerberg just screwed the US government out of billions of dollars of tax revenue.

Well played, Mark. Well played.

In an open letter to his newborn daughter, Mark and his wife explained how many problems are out there. War. Disease. Bigotry. Etc.

Like any parent, they want their child to grow up in a better world.

And they outlined their vision to make this happen, including taking risks and making long-term investments, building technology, and backing strong, independent leaders and visionaries.

This sounds conspicuously like the mission statement for any number of high-end Silicon Valley venture capital firms.

In a way, this is what the Zuckerbergs have created.

At the end of the letter, they pledge to contribute 99% of their Facebook shares, currently worth about $45 billion, to “advance this mission”.

The New York Times jumped on this immediately: “Mark Zuckerberg vows to donate 99% of his Facebook shares for charity.”

Incorrect. This isn’t charity. Continue reading “Mark Zuckerberg just bought 26 days of world peace”
