There is a simple solution

It's time for people to start holding the corpocracy responsible for its incessant attempts to strip all privacy from everyone:

Microsoft has teamed up with a number of tech and media companies to create a system of tracing content around the internet that could destroy online privacy and anonymity, radically transforming the nature of the web.

Against stiff competition, the alliance of tech and media giants has devised a plan that may constitute Big Tech’s most brazen power-grab yet.

According to Microsoft’s press release, it has partnered with several other organizations to form the Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity (C2PA).

Put simply, the purpose of this organization is to devise a system whereby all content on the internet can be traced back to its author.

The press release states that it will develop these specifications for “common asset types and formats,” meaning videos, documents, audio, and images.

Whether it’s a meme, an audio remix, or a written article, the goal is to ensure that when content reaches the internet, it will come attached with a set of signals allowing its provenance — meaning authorship — can be detected.

Consider the companies that have signed on to this initiative. Leading the pack is Microsoft, which operates Word, Paint, Notepad, Edge, and the Office Suite. If you create a .doc or a .jpg, a Microsoft service is probably involved in some capacity. Then there’s Adobe, the company behind Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, and Premiere Pro, as well as several other market-leading applications for publishing photos, videos, and documents. There’s also Truepic, a company that has developed technology to track the provenance of photos from the very moment they are captured on a smartphone.

Finally, there’s Intel, which dominates the market in laptop and desktop central processing units (CPUs). The CPU is responsible for processing virtually all information on computers. Whether you’re typing a sentence or taking a screenshot, it’s the CPU that is processing that data. Accessing the CPU is the ultimate form of digital surveillance. Even if you’re disconnected from the internet, the CPU still sees what your computer is doing.

The combination of these forces creates the potential to track and de-anonymize information from the moment it is created on a computer. Signals could be attached to information to ensure it is censored and suppressed wherever it travels online. Even if someone else is sharing the information, it could be suppressed simply because of its point of origin. And, of course, the signals could be used to identify the creators of dissident content.

It would also be useful to pass laws requiring artificial persons to be subject to the same responsibilities and penalties as natural persons, considering that they have many of the same rights. If a person who commits a crime that requires jail time cannot earn an income, why are corporations permitted to continue earning revenue if they are guilty of similar felonies and misdemeanors?

The only problem with this is that "corporations" and "government" are, de facto, one and the same. No organism is ever going to punish itself, so relying on government to do so is obviously a non-starter. "The People," in a general sense, are the answer, but it's still a question of a sufficient degree of awakening and organizing to hold corporatocracy accountable.

So recently the Raspberry community had reason to be miffed as it turns out there is something in Raspbian from Microsoft that "calls home".

But....there's always a but...and even more so in a minute...

The company that makes RPI is gay AF. Look at their logo. Back when I was on Twatter, I saw a post from them boasting about some gay Russian who sent pictures of the extra PRI logos they sent him.
Because gay and all that.

So of course homos and globohomo and globohomo company and the users got ignored when they objected because they are evil shitlords.

Because that's what they do.

Ultimately this move is to track memes, stop them, and then gang stalk whoever made it if there are no resources or not enough talmudic interpretations of the law for an actual indictment. I don't think the governments have the resources, but there are plenty of blue cheka and leftists who will take the job for anything ranging from cancelling to murder.

Note the article does not mention how Verizon already attaches things to packets.

Once we are done tugging on our bowties, what can be done about it? I know: don't use their stuff. I don't, actually.
Virtual machines can help. Make sure it's on proxies.
There are already meta strippers for media files out there. But I imagine a day when browsers will require meta data on everything, so stripping out source info as a counter can be countered. And it will be through that Google resource that even Brave uses.

It would not be difficult to write a text browser that separately loads images meta be damned. But the smart people who can do that are not the target.
Its the dumb masses...meaning this is once more all about democracy and keeping the voting public in the dark. The best change in laws would be to make engineering public opinion moot. The precedent was already set in November of 2020.

In the end, anything made by man can be defeated by men.

And encryption is not going to matter until its point to point with manually controlled keys. The briefcase had handcuffs on it for a reason.

Once again I recall grimly how we thought cyber dystopia was going to be cool with holographic displays floating cars, and hot geek girls. No floating cars. No holographic displays, and if it's not a hamplanet or goblina and it's free to look at you have to check for benis.

If a corporation commits a crime, the owners (stockholders) should be held responsible.
Because they are mostly innocent bystanders, they should be given a grace period to absolve themselves of ownership (sell their stock) to avoid punishment. In the absence of stockholders to “punish,” the board of directors, Chairman, CEO, and vice-presidents should receive the full brunt of punishment.

When a bunch of different businesses that are theoretically competitors speak with one voice and dance to one tune, the state is speaking the words and calling the tune.

I'll even give further evidence, while Zuckerberg is certainly not a noble character for a long time he was strongly opposed to the kind of censorship that Twitter was practicing early on (not out of any noble motive, he just thought it was bad for business)... then things started happening to him, he found out how powerless he really is.

Neither man held DOJ in high regard to say the least, and this was all public if you switched on the enablement.

The tricky thing is that this won't end up being something as simple as just stripping exif data from images to remove the authorship stamp for normie-tier users.

This video explains very nicely how hidden data can be encoded in any image file, even in pretty much any digital media file, as long as the data doesn't create too noticeable a change: Secrets Hidden in Images (Steganography) - Computerphile. It would work for audio and video as well as images.

The idea described in that article is basically leading towards a global digital ID system, where say, for iphone users a 256-bit hash of your icloud user ID could be stored in every photo AT THE POINT WHEN IT IS TAKEN!!!! Meaning it is impossible to detect at the basic user level, you wouldn't have an un-embedded version to compare it to, therefore it's a totally transparent manipulation.

With proprietary software there's literally no way to know if this would be happening. Scary world is on its way, may already be here. Who's to know?

An image can be broken down to pixel values and trend analyses sone on them. Such that even if the difference in color values from adjacent values forms a delta that can comprise data, and such minor difference that the naked eye does not notice it, a computer can find it. It's not going to as simple as anomalies arranged in plain text over an image that some bit shift could expose. Expect some kind of encoding scheme.

Blogger NRx March 05, 2021 1:34 PM  

"It's a feature, not a bug. The Bill of Rights only limits the actions of government against the citizens. Direct gov action that is unconstitutional will be accomplished indirectly by private enterprise."

This model of covert control behind the scenes of theoretically private enterprise was copied from Goebbels, even though ideologically the ruling progressive globalist type leftists of the US are much closer to Marxism than the heretical form of Marxism, that Hitler would deny was a form of Marxism, of the 3rd Reich (and in the Nazi system the behind the scenes control by the party was much more of an open secret). It wasn't something done in the US even by Wilson and FDR until at the earliest the late 50s. Covert workarounds were not an original feature will the Bill of Rights when the government ignored the bill of rights before the Operation Mockingbird era it wasn't covert about it, oh you want your 1st amendment rights in wartime when we have to beat der Kaiser, get f*cked bro. But now they have to be sneaky about everything...

So as such I believe doing anything to the corporate heads will accomplish nothing , as they are mostly (at least in tech and media) powerless puppets. Jeff Bezos does not control the Washington Post and Zuckerberg does not control what the "community standards" or who the "fact checkers" are on facebook. The only exception I know of is Rupert Murdoch (he probably had pictures of truly powerful people they didn't want getting out, he did use to run a tabloid) was able to maintain some degree of control over Fox News for years but hes recently clearly lost it.

Even in the purely cultural sphere they seem to not be able to fight the government mandated poz even when they want to. Disney has sort of tried to push back on having the SJWs wreck Star Wars... and yet even when it seemed like Jon Favreau was totally righting the ship with Star Wars and he seemed to have the complete backing of Disney management and major shareholders in doing so... it seems like some hidden hand has backed the SJW c*nt Kathleen Kennedy to start ruining the franchise again.

While Linux is still an alternative, keep in mind it's no longer the product of individuals that it was once.

The Linux Foundation is filled with corporate bad actors, Microsoft IBM(Red Hat) and Google are "generous donors" and have representation.

They have embraced Linux (no more is it a cancer, per Ballmer), they are now extending it and stage three is extinguishing it.

A nefarious tranny POS SJW named Coraline Ada Ehmke was the spearhead for the silencing of Linus Torvalds-who isn't some right wing activist, either.

That's why you don't see him having talks where somebody asks him about NVIDIA working with the open source community and flipping them off. He knows damn well he could be Assangenated.

Yes you do have a good with regards to the ongoing convergence of Linux. It will probably degrade, but I don't think it will become as bad as Windows, Mac, Android or iOS because the Kernel has to work properly.

If it does not then users and distro maintainers will simply stay on older versions, or there could be a fork. Also the backbone of the internet is run on linux so all these big companies have a incentive to have it function at least to a degree.

A file is a file is a file.
A file is a string of bits, all of which are visible to any user with access to the file. You cannot add or tag a file invisibly, only obscurely, meaning the bits will be there, but you have to know how to decode it to make use of it. This is merely a tag, presumably using blockchain, containing an encrypted userid. This essentially makes the content of the file a non-fungible token, or NFT.
In order to use this to track content, they would need to outlaw content without the token. Which may well be the plan.

Remember, they are terraforming mankind. Spiritually, mentally, and physically.

One day, the only thing you will own, is your soul. If you haven't sold it. And they have a plan for that, too.

Interesting, an anon was saying that this was coming last year and that it would work retroactively. Have they already been developing this system and are just rolling out the window-dressing now?

Yes, if enough people sign on to your fork you essentially destroy the old blockchain. It still exists, but is useless because the utility comes from the decentralized nodes proliferating.

Looks like the Indian government is waking up to this reality as well.

Corporate Crimes should result in the removal of Corporate Personhood entirely like a kind of corporate death penalty. And therefore unlimited liability is restored.

The company that makes RPI is gay AF. Look at their logo. Back when I was on Twatter, I saw a post from them boasting about some gay Russian who sent pictures of the extra PRI logos they sent him.

Because gay and all that.


As a Pi-Hole user on a 3 B+ I had to hunt this down, and check it out.
Turns out the version of Rasbian I have (I'm still on "Stretch") hadn't done this yet. I touched microsoft's gpg file and locked it, so they aren't gonna be playing games with my pet DNS black hole device...

Well, voting has been proven to be little more than masturbation, so what other tools do we have left? This must end in blood and fire.

Looking at Free BSD and ReactOS, among others.

The problem I think is that long before the Kernel exhibits noticeable dysfunction, it'll be pinging big tech's servers.

At the next ``election,'' do we vote and endorse the fraud, or do we stay home and make the fraud easier and less noticeable? Voting has become a Xanatos Gambit for our enemies. How do we disrupt that?

I'd ask people to remember just who will be actually creating these surveillance tools. Microsoft might be evil, but they're a very *stingy* kind of evil; as are the likes of Adobe, et al. Whatever ends up being implemented will be done by some dot making $1.50 an hour in some coding sweatshop in Chennai, India. So I wouldn't expect some digital panopticon spying on your every move. I'd expect some retarded system that works maybe 50% of the time and can be bypassed, or disabled outright, by some tool that will no doubt be created shortly afterwards.

@84, Paulito, until there is open civil war and no more elections, we are going to have ``elections.'' How best to disrupt the globohomo fraud, when voting or not voting equally serves their purpose?

>> If a corporation commits a crime, the owners (stockholders) should be held responsible.
Because they are mostly innocent bystanders, they should be given a grace period to absolve themselves of ownership (sell their stock) to avoid punishment. In the absence of stockholders to “punish,” the board of directors, Chairman, CEO, and vice-presidents should receive the full brunt of punishment.

The major stockholders ARE The Board of Directors, CEO, and any various Vice President of XYZs. The major corporations a mandate that anyone in such a position hold some minimum amount of stock. For example, the CEO of KMart in the late 1990s was required, as part of his job, to hold a number of shares with a value in the 8 figured range.


I think part of the purpose of these requirements is to make sure that only people from "the right families" can even be considered for such positions, as opposed to purely on merit, because very many talented and honest managers could never scrape up that kind of cash. While certainly not all, many more flag officers (admirals and generals) have proven to be vastly more honest, and certainly driven by goals other than being obsessed with obtaining as much $$$ as possible, regardless of who or how many get hurt in the process. These officers don't look for personnel to slash -- when an efficiency improvement comes along, the first question they ask themselves is, with this manpower no longer required to XYZ, what other useful things can I put them to work doing?

This is the exact opposite attitude of the hedge-fund corporate raiders who short sell companies into financial weakness, causing self-fulfilling predictions of bankruptcy, and then buying the company for pennies on the dollar of actual worth, and then sell the assets AGAIN in liquidation band spin-off sales.

The problem most definitely starts with the financial industry and it's culture (it was a new "financial" CEO with zero interest in aircraft -- as opposed to all of his predecessors who were aircraft engineers -- who moved Boeing's headquarters from Seattle to Chicago (so that he could get AWAY from the people who design, build, and sell the company product, in favor of gallivanting around at night in the city which has become little more than an attractive nuisance along the Lake Michigan shoreline of Illinois.

>> how we thought cyber dystopia was going to be cool with holographic displays floating cars, and hot geek girls.

Do you have any clue what the word "dystopia" means.

It doesn't mean cool flying cars that work right.
It doesn't mean cool holographic displays.

It most certainly doesn't mean young women who are pleasant AND physically attractive AND proficient at anything beyond either personal appearance/grooming related work or spending (someone else's) money.

A dystopia, by definition, isn't utopian.

I'd say it's really a personnel problem as opposed to being a corporate problem. It's impossible to succeed in that world without having an evil nature in some way.
