“Vox Populi, Vox Dei, man.” So says self-proclaimed Chief Twit Elon Musk from a personal jet flying excessive above the world throughout a Twitter Areas look on Sunday, Dec. 4 (JST). It does sound good to say, however the voice of the mob ought to by no means be the voice of “God.” The explanations are myriad. Suffice it to say that in the identical manner failed crypto-exchange CEO Sam Bankman-Fried supposedly set off Musk’s BS detector, so ought to Musk be setting off our personal alarm bells. His actions merely don’t match his nice-sounding phrases, and anybody who refuses to grasp free speech can also be going to overlook the boat on crypto and financial freedom.
God Save the ‘Technoking,’ the Individuals Are Disposable
Tesla CEO and self-proclaimed “free speech absolutist” Elon Musk lately ended a massively-tuned-into Dec. 4 Twitter Area hosted by Mario Nawfal, by noting that we reside in a time which, totally different from occasions previous, doesn’t contain “some king or no matter [that would] simply by default suppress” free speech. That is attention-grabbing, given this appears to be precisely the function self-labeled “Technoking” Musk is filling by way of his newly acquired social media platform, by arbitrarily and single-handedly deciding who will get to remain and what they will or can’t say. Musk acts, as billionaire entrepreneur and crypto advocate Mark Cuban has lately famous, like a one-man “decide and jury.” Cuban tweeted to Musk on Nov. 29:
We do not know what Free Speech on Twitter is since you are decide and jury. There isn’t a transparency.
Certainly, it’s now Elon’s platform. He can do what he needs, and I’m 100% okay with him doing that in precept, ignoring the obvious difficulty that social media platforms are huge knowledge assortment businesses for the state, full with particular authorities portals for the management of “misinformation.” That very matter was introduced as much as Elon, by the best way, and he mentioned: “I gotta dig into this trusted partnership factor. Clearly that has like some huge brother vibes … Twitter will adhere to the legislation, but it surely’s not going to transcend the legislation.”
Anyway, as an precise freedom absolutist (voluntaryist) myself, I’ve to place this Fed-funded Musk to the take a look at. As “non-public” as his picture could also be now, he’s clearly ready of state-influenced energy which might be an enormous detriment to on a regular basis people and free speech/crypto advocates down the road. Whereas he famous repeatedly that he needs Twitter to “come clear” about its previous “suppression of knowledge” in relation to U.S. electoral politics, Musk nonetheless delivered many combined messages.
‘Free Speech Absolutist’ Musk ‘Personally Needed to Punch Kanye’ However Permits Murdering and Youngster-Abusing Politicians on His Platform
Let me be very clear that I’m not saying that is intentional right here — it might ostensibly be a product of extreme statist brainwash or ignorance — however Musk does permit literal youngster molesters (individuals who contact kids inappropriately) and child-murder approvers (drone warfare government signatories similar to Joe Biden, Donald Trump, and Barack Obama) on the Twitter platform. They’re seemingly welcomed with wide-open arms.
And in case you name these atrocities and such tragic lack of life occurring mere “collateral injury,” or “misrepresented love of youngsters” I’m simply going to snort at you and name you an fool, since you are. I might additionally ask you to be the primary to volunteer your self and your kids as victims of such assaults and sexual improprieties the following time a bankers’ warfare or pervert politician involves your city. However I digress.
On the identical time Musk permits these creeps on Twitter, he arbitrarily refuses to reinstate the account of controversial discuss present host Alex Jones (one other suspect character). It’s because, in response to Musk: “I’ve no mercy for anybody who would use the deaths of youngsters for achieve, politics or fame.” Jones, for his half, used free speech to query the official narrative of the 2012 Sandy Hook faculty taking pictures in Newtown, Connecticut, inflicting a media uproar. Nonetheless distasteful which will appear to some, it by no means compares with the precise homicide and abuse perpetrated by these allowed to stay on Twitter.
Together with saying we shouldn’t use the dying of youngsters for achieve, Musk quoted Jesus of the Christian Bible and instructed a disputed story about his personal youngster’s tragic dying to additional emotionalize his level — a narrative which Musk’s ex-wife says was not even true. Whoever is correct or mistaken right here, Musk did all this, sarcastically, beneath a Sam Harris tweet. For these unaware, the famend atheist thinker Harris was not so way back on the media scorching seat for proclaiming:
Hunter Biden actually might have had the corpses of youngsters in his basement, I might not have cared.
Elon Musk seemingly has no downside with this. Within the Area, he even proclaimed: “Hunter Biden appears type of enjoyable, to be trustworthy.” The tales and concepts above are all so tragic and/or disgusting that disputing particulars appears virtually insensitive, on both aspect, however a dispassionate look beneath the microscope of purpose is important as a way to preserve rational readability, and to keep away from being tricked by manipulators who love to cover behind simply such so-called taboo and “unmentionable” subjects. Sacred cows.
As for the reinstatement of former U.S. president Donald Trump’s account, Musk had initially instructed “the individuals” a council can be figuring out such actions, however this plan was scrapped in lieu of a single Twitter ballot from Elon’s private account.
Nonetheless, the “Vox Populi” demanding Alex Jones be introduced again, and urgent questions on what constitutes so-called “adverse” or “hate” tweets — which Musk mentioned would now be “max deboosted” and demonetized beneath his new rule — was summarily ignored by the self-crowned tech king.
Musk additionally lately banned hip-hop star Kanye West (who himself appears to me — for a lot of causes — one other shill character designed to fire up misguided chaos and muddy the waters) for sharing a controversial picture, and after feedback about Nazis and Hitler in an interview with Alex Jones. Musk acknowledged within the Dec. 4 Twitter Area that Ye’s current tweet was an unlawful “incitement to violence” particularly as a result of:
I personally needed to punch Kanye, in order that was undoubtedly inciting me to violence.
For sure, “incitement to violence” doesn’t imply phrases that make one particular person really feel like utilizing literal violence towards the speaker. Regardless of how ludicrous or insensitive the phrases — or on this case, picture — could also be. Incitement to violence is saying one thing similar to “Let’s all go rob Joe tomorrow!” It’s past the scope of this text to go deeper into the conduct of narcissists and megalomaniacs, however speaking endlessly about saving humanity, posturing as a literal messiah determine, and pondering you get to bodily hurt individuals due to their phrases just isn’t normally signal. As H.L. Mencken famously wrote:
The urge to save lots of humanity is sort of at all times solely a false-face for the urge to rule it. Energy is what all messiahs actually search: not the prospect to serve.
Elon’s Bitcoin and CBDC Confusion: ‘Cash Is Digital Already’
Within the Dec. 4 Twitter area, joined by the likes of Ben Stiller, Musk’s mom, and a slew of militantly-moderate-opinion-toting normies, Musk was requested if he was nervous in regards to the fast introduction of central financial institution digital currencies (CBDCs) throughout the globe. Like all of the vital questions within the reside stream, he lived as much as his self-applied label of being “fanatically reasonable,” and refused to reply immediately. As an alternative, Musk offered some weird concepts implying that CBDCs would actually be no totally different than the digital fiat foreign money we use in the present day.
Ignoring the truth that retail CBDCs can operate as programmable cash issued immediately by reckless governments and central banks, and their equally disastrous insurance policies — with the added skill to ‘bake in‘ mechanisms like taxation, digital ID, adverse rates of interest, and potential social credit score techniques proper into the cash itself — Musk diverted the dialog by specializing in the antiquated tech of in the present day’s digital model of fiat, for a simple snort from the all-to-eager followers listening.
Whereas overtly acknowledging that “you’ll be able to starve individuals to dying” with draconian management of financial techniques earlier within the Area, he nonetheless mentioned: “I feel they’re conflating a couple of issues. To begin with, virtually all cash is digital already,” Musk mentioned, noting: “Whether or not banks create their very own cryptocurrencies I feel is considerably irrelevant. Individuals will use the cryptocurrencies that they assume will accrue worth over time and never use those that don’t.”
After all, it’s unsettling for a supposed tech genius to disregard the vital distinction between precise crypto like bitcoin money or monero and CBDCs. Specifically, that the latter entails the violent power of the state. The one particular person who appeared to even barely push again towards’s Musk’s assumptions throughout the Twitter Area was Kim Dotcom, however total, and even from Kim, the quantity of rear-end licking occurring all through was fairly nauseating.
Musk’s lacking the boat on crypto and cash shouldn’t shock us. In spite of everything, he has missed the boat on free speech, and these two ideas are inextricably associated. Governments are already cracking down on mere code, as evidenced by the current United States OFAC ban and sanctions on the Twister Money mixing platform.
It was this identical ostensible tech whiz Musk that failed to grasp bitcoin’s minimal impression on, and even advantages for, the local weather and setting (particularly in comparison with issues just like the fiat banking system’s vitality consumption, non-public jets consistently flying to Davos, and the dropping of bombs on individuals all around the world). Musk has as an alternative chosen to push the local weather panic and urge for a carbon tax, whereas canceling bitcoin funds at Tesla. Once more, both he’s performing and gaslighting you, or isn’t really very vivid.
Utilizing Musk’s ‘Bull**** Meter’ In opposition to His Personal Actions
No matter you imagine in regards to the official narratives relating to freedom activist whistleblowers Julian Assange and Edward Snowden, Musk’s milquetoast stance on the 2 within the Dec. 4 Twitter Area hosted by Nawfal is telling.
It’s onerous to look at the Wikileaks footage exposing the homicide of harmless individuals by U.S. forces in Iraq, together with journalists and kids, and never really feel illness and rage boiling in your abdomen on the injustice. One would think about that on the very least, a free speech absolutist like Musk can be 100% on the aspect of exposing such horrific crimes. However once more, the self-proclaimed “fanatic reasonable” chewed his lips, answering:
“I don’t know sufficient in regards to the Assange state of affairs to offer an correct reply. There are issues the place nationwide safety stuff is concerned that I feel do must be saved secret,” Musk mentioned. He concluded that, relating to NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden: “In all probability the very best factor can be a jury of the general public.”
When pressed by Kim Dotcom, who famous that the authorized system within the U.S. would render such a jury unimaginable, as exposing data similar to Snowden did is a criminal offense regardless, Musk gave up, sheepishly copping out:
I don’t know. I imply, there’s no straightforward reply to the Snowden/Assange state of affairs.
A lot for the voice of the individuals, I assume. There really is a simple reply for a “free speech absolutist,” and it’s not what Musk mentioned. Adherence to draconian statist legislation appeared to be the working thread all through Elon’s complete Areas interview: We’ll do what we will, so long as it doesn’t battle with the authorized system, in different phrases. And, as evidenced by his current single-handed Twitter bans, so long as it doesn’t damage his emotions. To assume that the fawning followers throughout the Areas session had been involved about his security from the powers that be. Why would he fear when he has simply overtly acknowledged he won’t ever disobey them?
When requested a couple of dialog Musk had with failed FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried within the Area, Musk mentioned:
Deep perception wasn’t mandatory. If somebody’s calling you to speak about investing in a giant transaction they need to be asking questions in regards to the transaction, not speaking about themselves, and speaking on the pace of an auctioneer. It didn’t require deep perception to determine that the bull**** issue is excessive.
I undergo you, reader, that if somebody is presenting themselves as a “free speech absolutist,” crypto advocate, and candidate for savior of humanity from the uncontrollable NPC left and big-gov/big-tech oppression, they shouldn’t be a fed-funded, carbon-tax-pushing, gov-contract-having, centralized-content-censoring, WEF-young-global-leader-being, Canadian-Social-Credit score-Occasion-chair-descended, neuralink-monkey-brain-damaging, New-World-Order-jacket-wearing, technocrat-social justice warrior who needs to bodily assault individuals for the mere phrases they are saying.
Free speech absolutist. Okay. Cool story, bro.
In Conclusion: One thing Is Very Incorrect Right here
Wanting round on the world and again at historical past, the Vox Populi is clearly not the Vox Dei — except god is a raging fool. And within the case of Hitler, the Vox Populi in Germany liked him. If Elon was really as vivid as they are saying, he would reside by a number of the many correct phrases he has spoken. For instance, when he famous that the state is a monopoly on violence. However, for no matter purpose, as an alternative of talking out towards that very same state, and pushing for a extra voluntary and free market/open supply society which really can be conducive to free speech and crypto innovation and peace — like voluntaryism — Musk contracts with it, and pushes for extra of the identical oppression, however in a extra misleading manner. Meet the brand new boss, worse than the woke boss.
Towards the tip of his look on the Twitter Area, Musk famous that account verification will doubtless be extra particularly leveraged to eliminate bots, however who is aware of precisely what this course of will ultimately entail. It might imply that people wishing to have a voice on the platform and stay non-public and nameless, might have a tough time of it. “So there might be a gold examine mark for business organizations, a grey examine mark for governments, and a blue examine mark for verified people,” Musk famous. “There might be a powerful coverage towards impersonation and deception,” he added.
Musk is a troublesome case as a result of he typically sounds convincing, talking generalized, cliched truths to oppressed individuals determined for an escape from the woke technocratic nightmare that’s taking place. He’s the proper synthesis of an elitist Hegelian dialectic to pacify and gaslight (deliberately or in any other case) dissenters on either side of the faux bipartisan political scheme, permitting those who have at all times managed the world — the eugenicists, bankers, and secretive pursuits behind closed doorways, to proceed duping “the individuals.”
In different phrases, it’s all a giant pro-wrestling present, occurring whereas the overarching draconian agendas involving CBDCs, world surveillance, and impending local weather lockdowns transfer steadily ahead. As such, what’s perceived as Gospel reality by the bulk — the “Vox Dei” — is sort of at all times lunacy. If I’m deemed a lunatic for taking this view, nicely, time will inform it.
However within the phrases of AC/DC’s Brian Johnson within the hit music “Hells Bells”: “If god’s on the left, I’m stickin to the [apolitical] proper.”
To hearken to Musk’s Twitter Areas look, one can achieve this on Twitter here, or on Odysee, right here.
