Is the much lauded technocratic “singularity” nothing more than the digital boot stamping on the face of humanity for all time? The final culling, tagging and bagging of the useless eaters who are set to become the realization of Cloud Atlases Sonmi-451? Mere $laves in a technocratically reinforced neo-gnostic prison? These are the currents flowing through my mind as I watch the great vortex of human culture spiraling through precessional time.

I hope you enjoy today’s little jaunt into the minds eye of institutionalized mind fuckery.

For decades, parents have lamented the state of the public education system and the dumbing down of generations of children.

In searching for YouTube videos of Noam Chomsky debating libertarians such as Ron Paul or Austrian economists such as Murray Rothbard, I found this:

Chomsky argues in this video that “if you go back to the Constitutional debates, they are all very clear: Madison, the framer of the Constitution, makes clear that the prime responsibility of government is to protect the minority, the opulent, against the majority.”
