“Vox Populi, Vox Dei, man.” So says self-proclaimed Chief Twit Elon Musk from a non-public jet flying excessive above the world throughout a Twitter Spaces 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 causes are myriad. Suffice it to say that in the identical means 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 People Are Disposable
Tesla CEO and self-proclaimed “free speech absolutist” Elon Musk lately ended a massively-tuned-into Dec. 4 Twitter Space hosted by Mario Nawfal, by noting that we reside in a time which, completely different from instances previous, doesn’t contain “some king or whatever [that would] just by default suppress” free speech. This is fascinating, 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’ll or can’t say. Musk acts, as billionaire entrepreneur and crypto advocate Mark Cuban has lately famous, like a one-man “judge 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 is not any transparency.
Indeed, 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 obtrusive subject that social media platforms are large information assortment companies for the state, full with special government portals for the management of “misinformation.” That very matter was introduced as much as Elon, by the way in which, and he stated: “I gotta dig into this trusted partnership thing. Obviously that has like some big brother vibes … Twitter will adhere to the law, but it’s not going to go beyond the law.”
Anyway, as an precise freedom absolutist (voluntaryist) myself, I’ve to place this Fed-funded Musk to the check. As “private” as his picture could also be now, he’s clearly able of state-influenced energy which could possibly be an enormous detriment to on a regular basis people and free speech/crypto advocates down the road. While he famous repeatedly that he needs Twitter to “come clean” about its previous “suppression of information” in relation to U.S. electoral politics, Musk nonetheless delivered many combined messages.
‘Free Speech Absolutist’ Musk ‘Personally Wanted to Punch Kanye’ But Allows Murdering and Child-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 youngsters inappropriately) and child-murder approvers (drone warfare government signatories akin to Joe Biden, Donald Trump, and Barack Obama) on the Twitter platform. They are seemingly welcomed with wide-open arms.
And if you happen to name these atrocities and such tragic lack of life happening mere “collateral damage,” or “misrepresented love of kids” I’m simply going to snigger at you and name you an fool, since you are. I’d additionally ask you to be the primary to volunteer your self and your youngsters as victims of such assaults and sexual improprieties the following time a bankers’ conflict or pervert politician involves your city. But I digress.
At 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). This is as a result of, in keeping with Musk: “I have no mercy for anyone who would use the deaths of children for gain, politics or fame.” Jones, for his half, used free speech to query the official narrative of the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, inflicting a media uproar. However 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.
Along with saying we shouldn’t use the demise of youngsters for achieve, Musk quoted Jesus of the Christian Bible and informed a disputed story about his personal youngster’s tragic demise to additional emotionalize his level — a narrative which Musk’s ex-wife says was not even true. Whoever is true or mistaken right here, Musk did all this, paradoxically, 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’d not have cared.
Elon Musk seemingly has no drawback with this. In the Space, he even proclaimed: “Hunter Biden seems kind of fun, to be honest.” 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 motive is critical so as to keep rational readability, and to keep away from being tricked by manipulators who love to cover behind simply such so-called taboo and “unmentionable” matters. Sacred cows.
As for the reinstatement of former U.S. president Donald Trump’s account, Musk had initially informed “the people” 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.
However, the “Vox Populi” demanding Alex Jones be introduced again, and urgent questions on what constitutes so-called “negative” or “hate” tweets — which Musk stated 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 image, and after feedback about Nazis and Hitler in an interview with Alex Jones. Musk said within the Dec. 4 Twitter Space that Ye’s latest tweet was an unlawful “incitement to violence” particularly as a result of:
I personally needed to punch Kanye, in order that was positively inciting me to violence.
Needless to say, “incitement to violence” doesn’t imply phrases that make one particular person really feel like utilizing literal violence towards the speaker. No matter how ludicrous or insensitive the phrases — or on this case, picture — could also be. Incitement to violence is saying one thing akin to “Let’s all go rob Joe tomorrow!” It’s past the scope of this text to go deeper into the habits of narcissists and megalomaniacs, however speaking endlessly about saving humanity, posturing as a literal messiah determine, and pondering you get to bodily hurt folks due to their phrases is just not normally signal. As H.L. Mencken famously wrote:
The urge to avoid wasting humanity is sort of all the time solely a false-face for the urge to rule it. Power is what all messiahs actually search: not the possibility to serve.
Elon’s Bitcoin and CBDC Confusion: ‘Money Is Digital Already’
In the Dec. 4 Twitter house, 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 apprehensive in regards to the speedy creation of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) throughout the globe. Like all of the necessary questions within the reside stream, he lived as much as his self-applied label of being “fanatically moderate,” and refused to reply instantly. Instead, Musk introduced some weird concepts implying that CBDCs would actually be no completely different than the digital fiat foreign money we use right now.
Ignoring the truth that retail CBDCs can operate as programmable cash issued instantly by reckless governments and central banks, and their equally disastrous policies — with the added capacity to ‘bake in‘ mechanisms like taxation, digital ID, unfavorable rates of interest, and potential social credit score methods proper into the cash itself — Musk diverted the dialog by specializing in the antiquated tech of right now’s digital model of fiat, for a simple snigger from the all-to-eager followers listening.
While overtly acknowledging that “you can starve people to death” with draconian management of financial methods earlier within the Space, he nonetheless stated: “I think they’re conflating a few things. First of all, almost all money is digital already,” Musk stated, noting: “Whether banks create their own cryptocurrencies I think is somewhat irrelevant. People will use the cryptocurrencies that they think will accrue value over time and not use the ones that don’t.”
Of course, it’s unsettling for a supposed tech genius to disregard the essential distinction between precise crypto like bitcoin money or monero and CBDCs. Namely, that the latter includes the violent force of the state. The solely particular person who appeared to even barely push again towards’s Musk’s assumptions throughout the Twitter Space was Kim Dotcom, however general, and even from Kim, the quantity of rear-end licking happening all through was fairly nauseating.
Musk’s lacking the boat on crypto and cash mustn’t shock us. After all, he has missed the boat on free speech, and these two ideas are inextricably related. Governments are already cracking down on mere code, as evidenced by the latest United States OFAC ban and sanctions on the Tornado Cash mixing platform.
It was this similar ostensible tech whiz Musk that failed to grasp bitcoin’s minimal impact on, and even benefits for, the climate and environment (particularly in comparison with issues just like the fiat banking system’s power consumption, personal jets continuously flying to Davos, and the dropping of bombs on folks everywhere in the world). Musk has as an alternative chosen to push the local weather panic and urge for a carbon tax, whereas canceling bitcoin payments at Tesla. Again, both he’s appearing and gaslighting you, or isn’t really very vibrant.
Using Musk’s ‘Bull**** Meter’ Against His Own Actions
Whatever you consider in regards to the official narratives concerning freedom activist whistleblowers Julian Assange and Edward Snowden, Musk’s milquetoast stance on the 2 within the Dec. 4 Twitter Space hosted by Nawfal is telling.
It is tough to observe the Wikileaks footage exposing the homicide of harmless folks by U.S. forces in Iraq, together with journalists and youngsters, 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 a hundred percent on the aspect of exposing such horrific crimes. But once more, the self-proclaimed “fanatic moderate” chewed his lips, answering:
“I don’t know sufficient in regards to the Assange state of affairs to provide an correct reply. There are issues the place nationwide safety stuff is concerned that I believe do should be stored secret,” Musk stated. He concluded that, concerning NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden: “Probably the best thing would be a jury of the public.”
When pressed by Kim Dotcom, who famous that the authorized system within the U.S. would render such a jury inconceivable, as exposing data akin to Snowden did is a criminal offense regardless, Musk gave up, sheepishly copping out:
I don’t know. I imply, there’s no simple reply to the Snowden/Assange state of affairs.
So a lot for the voice of the folks, I assume. There really is a simple reply for a “free speech absolutist,” and it’s not what Musk stated. Adherence to draconian statist regulation gave the impression to be the operating thread all through Elon’s complete Spaces interview: We’ll do what we are able to, so long as it doesn’t battle with the authorized system, in different phrases. And, as evidenced by his latest single-handed Twitter bans, so long as it doesn’t harm his emotions. To assume that the fawning followers throughout the Spaces session have been involved about his security from the powers that be. Why would he fear when he has simply overtly said he won’t ever disobey them?
When requested a couple of dialog Musk had with failed FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried within the Space, Musk stated:
Deep perception wasn’t obligatory. 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-Party-chair-descended, neuralink-monkey-brain-damaging, New-World-Order-jacket-wearing, technocrat-social justice warrior who needs to bodily assault folks for the mere phrases they are saying.
Free speech absolutist. Okay. Cool story, bro.
In Conclusion: Something Is Very Wrong Here
Looking 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 cherished him. If Elon was actually as vibrant as they are saying, he would reside by a few of the many correct phrases he has spoken. For instance, when he famous that the state is a monopoly on violence. But, for no matter motive, as an alternative of talking out towards that very same state, and pushing for a extra voluntary and free market/open supply society which actually 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 means. Meet the brand new boss, worse than the woke boss.
Toward the top of his look on the Twitter Space, Musk famous that account verification will possible 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 personal and nameless, could have a troublesome time of it. “So there will be a gold check mark for commercial organizations, a gray check mark for governments, and a blue check mark for verified individuals,” Musk famous. “There will be a strong policy against impersonation and deception,” he added.
Musk is a troublesome case as a result of he usually sounds convincing, talking generalized, cliched truths to oppressed folks determined for an escape from the woke technocratic nightmare that’s occurring. He is the proper synthesis of an elitist Hegelian dialectic to pacify and gaslight (deliberately or in any other case) dissenters on either side of the pretend bipartisan political scheme, permitting people who have all the time managed the world — the eugenicists, bankers, and secretive pursuits behind closed doorways, to proceed duping “the people.”
In different phrases, it’s all a giant pro-wrestling present, happening 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 all the time lunacy. If I’m deemed a lunatic for taking this view, properly, time will inform it.
But 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] right.”
