Technocratic Fascism, Tech Elitism and the Development of the Tor Network

A consummately important piece in “Uncomputing” sets forth the political philosophy embraced by dominant elements of the tech community, a type of technocratic fascism: “. . . .Such tech­no­cratic beliefs are wide­spread in our world today, espe­cially in the enclaves of dig­i­tal enthu­si­asts, whether or not they are part of the giant corporate-digital leviathan. . . .telling us that coders don’t just have good things to con­tribute to the polit­i­cal world, but that the polit­i­cal world is theirs to do with what they want, and the rest of us should stay out of it: the polit­i­cal world is bro­ken, they appear to think (rightly, at least in part), and the solu­tion to that, they think (wrongly, at least for the most part), is for pro­gram­mers to take polit­i­cal mat­ters into their own hands. . . .” All of the contents of this website as of 12/19/2014–Dave Emory’s 35+ years of research and broadcasting–as well as hours of videotaped lectures are available on a 32GB flash drive.

Now, About those School Yard Shootings . . .

With the nation and much of the world focused on the gruesome shootings in Newtown, Connectcut, we revisit the topic of the schoolyard shootings. In past programs, we have noted that a number of the [alleged] perpetrators of the school shootings have links to Nazi and white supremacist groups. A form of terrorism, these massacres destabilize society, leading to the popular sentiment for “order.” Endorsed by some elements of popular culture, the schoolyard shootings are functioning in a manner analogous to the Fritz Haarmann incident in Weimar Germany. That serial murder of more than a hundred juveniles, whose corpses were butchered and baked into meat pies, discredited the authorities of Weimar Germany, helping to sow sentiment that would benefit the Nazis.

"Peace Activists" with a Secret Agenda? Part Three:

Stealth Trotskyism and the Mystery of the WWP by Kevin Coogan One of the many ironies of the IAC/WWP story is that a group now aligned with some of the most dogmatic elements in what’s left of the Left is itself most likely run by secret Trotskyists.

The Crisis of the Marxist Left and the Rise of the WWP by Kevin Coogan Although Ramsey Clark greatly contributed to the IAC’s credibility with respect to the outside world, the emergence of the WWP inside the American radical movement essentially stems from resistance inside the U.S. Left to the radical changes in the Soviet […]

Institute of Noetic Sciences: Fascists and the New Age

The Institute of Noetic Sciences is one of the epicenters of the so-called “New Age.” It was co-founded by SS officer and Project Paperclip import Werner von Braun (right, with fellow denizens of the Age of Aquarius). Another co-founder was Paul N. Temple, who is deeply involved with the Fellowship Foundation, an organization with strong links to the Third Reich and its post-war alumni activists.
