Forum Post: Live Outside the Overton Window

The Overton window, also known as the window of discourse, is the range of ideas tolerated in public discourse.

Happy birthdebt to you. Happy birthdebt to you. Happy birthdebt dear debtslave, Happy birthdebt to you.

“Mom, why do we have birthdebts?”

Mother, knowing the corporation was monitoring everyone through the birthchip implants, answered carefully. “Our ancestors made bad choices and we inherited the lawful debts they contracted. We must honor the debts by working for the owners doing our duty to God and his chosen lenders. The life-lien holders are kind enough to feed, clothe and shelter us as long as we continue give them their due.”

She carefully tried to mask her anxiety. A neighbor had recently been unguardedly anxious about debt and surveillance of debtors. The intellectual property police raided her home and found unregistered spoons and bowls. Failure to pay monthly royalties to patent holders or fees to copyright owners results in confiscation of all property a borrower was renting and dissolution of the life contract that had been violated. No one even dared to think that the contraband may have been planted by the contract/owners rights enforcers.

Though the recent birthchip upgrade had been designed to monitor thoughts as well as utterances and deeds, it apparently wasn't working properly yet. That or such thoughts as Mia is presently experiencing are considered healthy deterrents to material violations of world-owners' rights. However, if a conservative element regains control, more strict enforcement is to be expected. It's wise to learn to control thoughts and eliminate dangerous ones before they pass through waking consciousness. Even the most fascist Republican has yet to accuse our dreams. ...

Unknown to Mia and her child, a growing faction of malcontents had found a way to hack their birthchips. Corp-One was fed a diet of innocuous, ordinary and false life experience data. The privacy gained was used to devise ways to alter and awaken others, while exploring the possibility of revolution and other things beyond the Overton Window.

Wrist chips...I say this every time I'm at a register as a joke I flip my wrist over when they ask for payment ...no one gets it. But we basically have that now with all the data being kept on us. It is similar to Nazis keeping track of jews via IBM gov in conjunction with NeoCorporations... Now banks are moving to eye and fingerprint scans. The scariest is facial recognition technology...Walmart is already using it to track people's moods and emotions and linking it to if they make a purchase. It is so fucking scary and invasive. I bet they REALLY use it on employees to track unionization movements and...did u do your Walmart cheer with enthusiasm today or pee one to many times? Now Cable and Phone and Google tracking and selling your web searches. Did I fall asleep and advertising replaced justice as our guide. All hail advertising our lord and master we will sacrifice our freedom in the name of a real targeted ad? Yeah and if you believe that is the reason I have bridge to sell you too. I believe in abolishing credit scoring, and more criminal records, data mining and tracking of any kind. If we need your record to warn others then you should probably still be in jail. If you are truly not a risk you paid your time? Is that crazy?

Is that crazy?

What's crazy is to believe the surveillance is dominated by the government and not the corporations that own it. Corporatism, "the marriage of corporate and state power," has all but destroyed rule of, by and for the people of the USA and most of the world's countries.

Agree. Move to Amend and public election funds along with enforcing anti-trust and disbanding monopolies and ending the lobbying madness. Why do they want all this data mining stuff on us? Government or business. Govoration? ...It isn't the governments place to track and manage people. They work for us...we let them manage our money. It smells like a takeover to me. They want control of our money. It allows them to make law based on the data. The credit bureaus and banks are a perfect example. The need to shift and switch and switch again to make themselves the most profits and gains. But for that...they need the data. Algorithms for profit followed by law based on their data to make that happen. It is so they can learn how to best steal and who to most easily steal from. Whatever way they have to manufacturing terror and consent. They emptied our pockets.

Absolutely - corpo-Rat-ions playing one country off of another for personal gain - or even tearing apart a country "USA" to support their own agenda = personal profits (and to hell with all other life).

Currently the corpoRATs have a firm hold on t government of t USA and are pushing for the final victory of corpoRAT ownership and enslavement of everyone else! Till of course this misrule kills the planet and all life on it!

I think the underclass is educating itself. I think of this corrupt goliath and it is so easy to get lost in that maze but the white rabbit moment for me happened when I learned Hillary sat on the board of Walmart for 6 years. Meanwhile as the media race baited the public and pretended to hate Hillary...they never peeped a word of her Walmart ties. That is a pretty large fact to keep silent all those years even as Walmart has been one of the most sexist companies and treats their workers so terribly. Here you have a candidate running on feminism and jobs for working people and promotion of women and minorities... who worked for a company sued for not only their sexist policies but wage theft of all employees. Then when she and Bill sat in the oval office years later comes Nafta. Heavily lobbied for by none other than Walmart. I always defended that move too. Until I learned this which actually shocked me because I'm so tuned in to this stuff that somehow I could have missed this all these years. I actually boycott Walmart and strongly support worker unionization. So the assertion that Hillary is a true democrat and that the media is actually left wing as all the while they are manipulating the public to vote for her in droves I guess thinking she would appeal more to minorities. BUT something unexpected happened...the underclass educated themselves and saw through the veil. Minorities didnt show up and the entire u derclass chose Bernie because he truly represented our interests and we either chose to stay home or as I did wrote him in. So it is interesting now you see this repeal of Net Neutrality...the powers that be don't want us having access to information...they lost their power to gaslight and manipulate the public into buying the CorpoRats propaganda. The races aren't at war, Hillary isn't exactly a Democrat upholding any of our values and I would really actually like to know how much Walmart stock and donations she still profits from. Trump and Hillary are on the same team as all of his campaign promises to help the working class landed in the Swamp of Sadness and it is clear he is a liar. They are both for the marriage of corporation and state. Lying to the public pretending to be at odds with the media who supports them both. It is just really amazing the lenghths of manipulation and deception and pure greed happening even at the expense of country relations and race relations. But I have faith in the public. Those days of those like Hillary and Trump and CorpoRats are numbered. I especially love them studying psychology of Narcicissm, Psycopathy, and Sociopathy there is a real shift taking place. When the door to awareness opens it can't close. They can take our freedom, our internet, our money...but it won't stand for very long.

Everyone needs to experience that moment of awakening. That moment that starts to open the eyes and gets an individual to really start asking questions about the world around them and what exactly is being presented to them at any given time from multiple sources.

I had thought Ellen DeGeneres was an individual who found fortune and then decided to do some good works with some of it. I don't watch her show (just catch parts here and there) just mainly hear about what a good person she is from her fans (well from media that show her fans). Well I caught something disturbing the other day = She spoke well of Walmart on her show. I guess not everyone knows what an abusive employer Walmart is. Still - I Mean - doesn't she?

Anyway - what is the reality - is Ellen a good individual who is just naive? Someone media exploits to offer a false sop to an audience? Or is Ellen an active participant to deceiving those around her (fans)?

we all make mistakes ...I think the level of those and the majority of our actions make up our character ALONG with our ability to recognize and reconcile those mistakes.
