The Frontier of Liberty
Without privacy, we have no liberty.
At a time when corporate media propagate seeds of divisibility, a new paradigm of discrimination is masquerading among us. The precipice of tyranny we face extends far beyond the hypocrisy of hate speech, military aggression, and global corporation collusion with seemingly all world governments. Today, the biggest threat to human Liberty may be corporate access to personal data combined with a unique digital identifier for every citizen.
As discussed in public meetings by the leaders and ‘prophets’ of the World Economic Forum, the new frontier of surveillance is ‘under the skin.’ Global corporations and the men pulling their strings want to surveil our biological systems and even our thoughts, which up until recently, were widely understood as unimaginable violations of the fundamental human right to privacy. The same leaders suggest that human rights and free will do not exist.
The surveillance state and the ready technology it wields are the mechanisms by which our physical world could become a digital prison.
Corporations wish to govern directly.
The risk of violating privacy is no longer limited to identity theft; now, global corporations and their largest investors wish to govern consumer behavior. This could occur by using currently available technology and controlling the legislative conversation regarding data privacy.
Today, multinational corporations are an indirect form of governance, through regulatory capture, unlimited funding of elections, and the corruption of the legislative process. The World Economic Forum boasts a future of ‘public-private partnerships,’ where corporations become a direct form of government. Imagine for-profit corporations defining ethics and morality in a world where identity and materiality become a religion, and moral relativism and subjective determinism supplant universal spiritual values. Imagine a world where truth and reality are undermined by organizations whose primary focus is economic domination.
Environmental, Social, and governance (ESG) and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) standards may appear for the common good. However, these subjective concepts are quickly shifting beyond mere suggestions by Blackrock to its more than 1,600 global portfolio companies. Soon ESG will be forced onto the customers of these companies. The level of danger magnifies when the global corporate web appears to be a virtual monopoly or, more specifically, an oligarchy. The risk becomes exponential with the elimination of physical currency. If this portfolio of companies own the rights to private data, and universal digital identification systems become permissible by law, these private entities can discriminate against consumers by regulating and terminating access to essential services such as internet and phone networks, banking and payment processing, and virtually any economic transaction.
You may agree with ESG standards today, although their motives are largely economic. From carbon credits to tracking purchase activity for advertising, when the winds of profit motivation shift, the measure and effect will likely lead to licensed discrimination and exile for non-compliance. At the core, it is perilous to empower corporations with ownership or liberal rights to private data and digital identifiers as technocratic data management, combined with the elimination of cash, could create a totalitarian state determined, controlled, and enforced by global corporations. In essence, elected governments could be rendered mute, enabled by pro-corporate ‘data privacy’ legislation currently being adopted in many states and nations worldwide.
Data privacy is the frontier of tyranny.
Existing and proposed data privacy legislation in state capitals and countries around the world contain one fatal flaw; they assume corporations own our data. And much of the legislation in the United States defers to Federal law written, or at the very least, heavily negotiated with large global corporations.
States deferring to Federal law is a nationalization of corrupt corporate cronyism. Are Facebook and Google respecting our privacy today? Then why would we look to compromised, non-elected Federal agencies, which constantly bow to the money, who co-opt laws with gaping loopholes and petty penalties for unconstitutional violations of individual rights?
Digital identifiers destroy anonymity, a fundamental element of privacy we must defend at all costs. Facial recognition software, Central Bank Digital Currencies, and social credit systems become mechanisms of discrimination through the use of a digital identifier. Imagine the view through a public surveillance camera with little floating ID numbers over the heads of all subjects in the frame. During recent public protests in China, digital Identifiers enabled the government to remotely turn off permissions to reenter apartments and access public transit, ultimately allowing the apprehension and imprisonment of peaceful protestors.
A simple way to prevent corporations from exercising this type of authority over their customers is to reject and eliminate digital identification systems, including Digital Drivers’ licenses or any generally accepted form of digital identification. In addition to obvious security risks, digital identifiers are a pandering utopia where risk never outweighs the illusion of convenience.
We can be pro-business and enforce the constitution.
No business has the right to violate our privacy or constitutional rights, just like no court system should ever be allowed that usurps the due process of law.
The Nationalization of state politics in America is an extension of the globalization of National politics by non-elected, international governmental agencies. The declaration unanimously signed by G20 leaders in Bali made this evident. Every leader of the formerly free world, and the newly crowned global Energy czar, China, agree on seemingly every data point of the World Economic Forums, Great Reset.
A Digital Bill of Rights is only lawful if it clarifies that the consumer owns the data.
Legislation regarding consumer data use has become a negotiation for our right to privacy with global corporations.
Financial conflicts of interest are the biggest risk to our Republic and the sovereignty of our state governments (and our bodies). It is no longer that large multinational companies are lobbying for a slight advantage over their competitors; it is that two large asset managers are the largest shareholders of every major competitor in every industry of commerce. Our basic rights are not to be negotiated with ‘public-private’ partnerships enabled by financial conflicts of interest and unlimited lobby spending within our legislatures.
We need to simplify legislation by empowering the individual.
The only way to resolve the data privacy issue is to codify into every state and national law that the consumer owns the data. Opt-out data privacy laws assume corporations own and control private data leaving the consumer to beg for their rights with lax cure periods and unmotivating punitive damages rarely enforced by regulators captured by those violating our privacy.
Our data is our data.
Our blood is our blood.
Our genetic and biological data belong to the person from which it originates.
I propose we discard lengthy, disorienting corporate negotiated legislation around data privacy and strike any references to Federal laws and international or other state legislation that claim to be a ‘Bill of Rights.’ for privacy. Privacy is a fundamental right, and data should belong to individuals.
A universal data privacy law will fit neatly on the back of a napkin.
Article I - The consumer owns the data.
Article II - If a business wants to use the data for any other purpose than directly conducting business with the consumer, it must seek absolute non-coerced consent.
Article III - If consent is obtained and the data sold, the identity must remain anonymous, and reasonable compensation must be provided to the consumer.
As a matter of clarification, non-coerced consent eliminates the preemptive modern software standard of ‘you must accept my terms as a condition of conducting business.’ That may work in a genuinely free market but not in an environment of a globalized virtual monopoly. How could anyone say no to the terms of a Microsoft product when their livelihood depends on it? How can anyone avoid unilateral terms and conditions of internet service providers or electric companies, who share the same largest investors demanding the implementation and enforcement of subjective ESG policies or other metrics as a condition of service?
We must also stop referring to Federal and international laws that global corporations have primarily written. The very idea of a digital Bill of Rights assumes that citizens do not have a fundamental right to privacy, proving the point that corporations have no rights as stakeholders to negotiate basic human rights. Seemingly all current data privacy legislation assumes that the corporations own the data. Most data privacy laws ultimately usurp the basic rights of citizens and give corporations sufficient legal control to violate our privacy and create a globalized surveillance state easily administered through private technology and finally enforced without elected government.
Privacy is the frontier of Liberty.
The current threshold humanity is walking through determines the risk of unchecked discrimination and human enslavement or human Liberty.
Do we want corporations to dictate social and moral values for our families?
Do we want our lives governed by unscrupulous global money managers?
Or do we want Liberty?
We must reject corrupted, unconstitutional Federal law and avoid codifying rights for large corporations to become our governors. There should be no stakeholder meetings to negotiate our Constitutional rights with for profit corporations. The only way to combat financial conflicts of interest and ’stakeholder capitalism’ is to empower the individual.
The consumer owns the data.
