Readers Comment about The Super Computer Called The Beast … and it “STARTS HERE”
I finally got around to reading your mini-series, “The Beast” this morning
This is not new information to me. My suspicions about this were verified when the story ran about the FBI (or maybe the CIA) whistle blower more than a few years ago, who is living in Russia (Snowden) leaked out that the US government was collecting information on everyone everywhere. Leading up to this revelation, there was plenty of exposure with various fiction movies, like “The Net”
I’ve asked my two young sons what they thought of this. I’m always interested in the perspective of our future decision-makers. I warned them in high school that everything that they post will one day come back to haunt them. Specifically, I was thinking about their ability to find employment.
At that point in time, they rolled their eyes and dismissed my warnings (kids! grr). But later, when I was in a management position, I used Facebook & linked in to screen candidates for positions that I was hiring for. I always looked up job candidate’s social media platforms to assess a person’s professional demeanor and social conduct.
The Super Computer Called The Beast series of articles.
When they grew older (and it’s still a topic that comes up), I periodically ask them if they are concerned about the government being able to track them or what they think of companies using their internet history to market to them specifically. This concept is as normal to them as “indoor plumbing or paying for water” is to my generation. They grew up with computer technology being as normal as breathing. They seem almost completely unconcerned. Still there is awareness.
The oldest of the sons is absolutely unconcerned because he’s plugged into the social/economic machine. He accepts giving up his privacy for the convenience of GPS and consumer specific ads reaching him. He doesn’t have to look for how to get where he needs to be or what he needs in his life, he can put all of this focus on work and trust that he’ll be told where to go and what he needs. He thinks this convenience allows him more time to be creative with his designs at work and he feels that as long as he has nothing to hide, there is nothing to fear. However, he did joke in our phone conversation yesterday when talking about COVID conspiracy, when he said “To whoever is listening, I’m just joking”.

It’s like he just accepts that it’s part of his world and he can’t succeed without it. I think he’s right in this age where everything needs to be faster and more efficient. We are expected in the workplace to think like a computer or be replaced by one.
The youngest is quite concerned and sees the world he lives in as fundamentally flawed. Part of this is because he simply can’t rise to the expectations of employers and finds himself unappreciated and never achieving the expectation imposed upon him.
He would rather disengage than rise above – maybe he just seeks the path of least resistance. “unreasonable expectations” does not inspire him to be better, like it does for most of us.
It has the opposite effect on him where he just refuses to play the game. His opinions are parroted by others of his generation and supported with his exposure to the internet. This has led him toward an “anti-capitalism” perspective because he believes that my generation has led us down this path of reliance on computer technology (with our monetary system).

And he holds a certain resentment of that. While his understanding of the world around him, is still in development, he is struggling to disengage himself from our capitalistic economic environment. At the end of the day, he supports internet-related technological advancement and believes that we are moving toward merging AI with our physiology to replace physical effort. And he doesn’t seem to be fighting against that. He has accepted that this is the inevitable next phase of our physical development.
The point is that this system of computer dependency is normal to them. So, they are just trying to manage the next step of computer evolution into their core beliefs. Because they can’t imagine a world without computers. Weird, eh?
As the author of this fine read called “The Beast” I had to answer by saying, yes this is the norm and I’m afraid, it will be more-so in the future. “Power and Control” I think were F#$^%$ked

Ordering a Pizza in 2022
Is this Pizza Hut?
No sir, it’s Google Pizza.
I must have dialed a wrong number, sorry.
No sir, Google bought Pizza Hut last month.
I would like to order a pizza.
Do you want your usual, sir?
My usual? You know me?
According to our caller ID data sheet, the last 12 times you called you ordered an extra-large pizza with three cheeses, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms and meatballs on a thick crust.
Super! That’s what I’ll have.
May I suggest that this time you order a pizza with ricotta, arugula, sun-dried tomatoes and olives on a whole wheat gluten-free thin crust?
What? I don’t want a vegetarian pizza!
Your cholesterol is not good, sir.
How the hell do you know that?
Well, we cross-referenced your home phone number with your medical records. We have the result of your blood tests for the last 7 years.
Okay, but I do not want your rotten vegetarian pizza! I already take medication for my cholesterol.
Excuse me sir, but you have not taken your medication regularly. According to our database, you purchased only a box of 30 cholesterol tablets once at Lloyds Pharmacy, 4 months ago.
I bought more from another Pharmacy.
That doesn’t show on your credit card statement.
I paid in cash.
But you did not withdraw enough cash according to your bank statement.
I have other sources of cash.
That doesn’t show on your latest tax returns, unless you bought them using an undeclared income source, which is against the law!
WHAT THE HELL!
I’m sorry sir, we use such information only with the sole intention of helping you.
Enough already! I’m sick to death of Google, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and all the others. I’m going to an island without the internet, TV, where there is no phone service and no one to watch me or spy on me.
I understand sir, but you need to renew your passport first. … It Expired 6 Weeks Ago …
