Morrison, his Labor mates and their CHOs do not care about the health of the Australian people.

We are not undergoing a "coronavirus crisis". THEY have shut down livelihoods, civil society, and are deflecting blame for economic collapse by bullshitting and punishing us.

These puppeteered sociopaths and their MSM propagandists will indefinitely bait and switch their illogical anti-social dictates and restrictions until the Australian people demand an end to the lockdown.

 

 

"Generation being born now is the last to be free" and "watch your lawyers": Julian Assange's last interview before he was gagged [Information Liberation - March 2018]:

“A small child now in some sense has to negotiate its relationship with all the major world powers… It puts us in a very different position. Very few technically capable people are able to live apart, to choose to live apart, to choose to go their own way,” he added.

“It smells a bit like totalitarianism – in some way.”

The capacity to collect and process information about people has been growing exponentially and will continue to grow fast, he stated. With advancements in applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) to big data, the next logical step is coming.

“Look at what Google and Baidu and Tencent and Amazon and Facebook are doing. They are basically open-cut harvesting the knowledge of humankind as we express it, when we communicate with each other… This classical model, which people in academia call ‘surveillance capitalism’… has changed now

Big tech use coronavirus as pretext to deploy automation as part of their censorship regime [Mint Press News - 18 March 2020]:

 

“As COVID-19 evolves, we’re doing our best to support those who watch, create, & make a living on YouTube. Many of us here & in our extended workforce are unable to work as usual, so we’re reducing staffing in certain offices, causing some disruptions,” it said in a message on Twitter.

“With fewer people to review content, our automated systems will be stepping in to keep YouTube safe. More videos will be removed than normal during this time, including content that does not violate our Community Guidelines. We know this will be hard for all of you.”

The news that the video sharing platform is now at the mercy of an automated system that even its creators admit does not function properly was greeted with skepticism, especially as YouTube did not explain why watching and judging content on its platform could not be done remotely.

 

 

Why are you cool with your children's education, your legal system and all your social interactions being mediated by big tech?  Facebook, Google and representatives from violent and abusive governments of 5 eyes countries meet in Washington; issue joint announcement asserting their right to control the internet [CNBC - 5 March 2020]

 

 

In statement to the World Socialist Web Site Julian Assange calls effort of corporations to control Internet discourse “an existential threat to humanity” [18 January 2018]:

 

The future of humanity is the struggle between humans that control machines and machines that control humans.

Between the democratization of communication and usurpation of communication by artificial intelligence.

While the internet has brought about a revolution in people’s ability to educate themselves and others, the resulting democratic phenomena has shaken existing establishments to their core.

Google, Facebook and their Chinese equivalents, who are socially, logistically and financially integrated with existing elites, have moved to re-establish discourse control.

This is not simply a corrective action. Undetectable mass social influence powered by artificial intelligence is an existential threat to humanity.

While still in its infancy, the trends are clear and of a geometric nature.

The phenomena differs in traditional attempts to shape cultural and political phenomena by operating at scale, speed and increasingly at a subtlety that eclipses human capacities....

Eric Schmidt — the former executive chairman and CEO of Google — will lead a team in New York that will find ways to use technology to reimagine the state's economy [Albany Business Review - 6 May 2020]:

 

During a press conference Wednesday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Schmidt will lead a 15-person commission to find ways to use new technologies for the "economy of tomorrow."

That includes building up remote learning, telemedicine and infrastructure to work from home.

"The first priorities of what we're trying to do are focused on telehealth, remote learning and broadband," Schmidt said.

"We can take this terrible disaster and accelerate all of those in ways that will make things much much better."

 

 

Governor Andrew Cuomo just announced that he has tapped a second billionaires to “reinvent” education in New York state after the pandemic ... Cuomo sees distance learning as “the wave of the future,” so who better to enlist as his advisers than Bill Gates and now Eric Schmidt of Google. [Professor Diane Ravitch - 6 May 2020]:

 

Obviously Cuomo thinks that the future of education is online.

He seems oblivious to the eagerness of parents and students alike to return to real live teachers in real school buildings.

Parents want to return to work, students want to see their teachers and their friends, and they want to return to their activities and sports.

Teachers want to see their students.

No one but Cuomo—and probably Bill Gates and Eric Schmidt—wants remote learning to become permanent.

 

 

Two million students in rural Cambodia are unable to access the government's online education programmes [New Straits Times - 2 May 2020]:

 

"Even I as a teacher do not have a computer or television at home. What about people who do not have money? They work hard to survive daily, how will they afford a television set?

"The distance learning will fail because many students cannot access it. And even if they can, they don't have the encouragement to study as their parents are poor and they need to help them earn an income."

 

 

“He who opens a school door, closes a prison.”

In case you had forgotten, Morrison and his Labor mates are ideologically opposed to the teaching profession and a well educated and informed public.

If you keep giving your consent to their ever changing, and illogical, "restrictions", and do not start demanding the unconditional re-opening of schools, your kids are nothing more than curios and cannon fodder for big tech billionaires and the war machine.

"Unless technological changes in our working conditions are resisted now, they may threaten the interests of students and teachers alike" [Boston Review - 30 April 2020]:

... Traditional classrooms have inherent value that is lost in distance learning environments. Anyone concerned with education rather than bottom lines knows and values these qualities.

We form relationships with our students that are not quantifiable and that depend on physical proximity. We can see when students are tired and when they’ve been crying.

They often walk out of class with us or casually chat if they are early. In a world dominated by outcomes, efficiencies, and goal maximization, it can feel unprofessional to invoke the importance of emotional bonds, but anyone who fondly remembers their favorite class in college knows that it involved far more than the mere relaying of information. ...

Perspectives on the Pandemic | The Bakersfield Doctors | Episode 6 [4 May 2020]:

When Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi held a press conference on April 22nd about the results of testing they conducted at their urgent care facilities around Bakersfield, California, the video, uploaded by a local ABC news affiliate, went viral.

After reaching five million views, YouTube took it down on the grounds that it "violated community standards."

We followed up with the doctors to determine what was so dangerous about their message.

What we discovered were reasonable and well-meaning professionals whose voices should be heard.
