Edward Snowden answers Substack readers' questions on truth, conspiracy, and... anime?
Well done Edward!
That was great and very informative. There are also bipartisan taboo themes though.
Much reported, including you -- "Topic of this year - Pegasus", is disclosure of continuous over time surveillance ability of all smart-phones of all conversations and pin-point location-accuracy even when phone is turned off.
Therefore, certainly many governments (certainly of Israel and the US) know EXACTLY and for ALL Epstein's associates and "guests" -- who, when, where, how long, and why they were with pedophile Epstein !!
Yet we still don't know, after all this time, for example, even what Epstein's multiple passports show. As courageous Eric Weinstein stated -- Epstein was "a construct" - by one or more intelligence services.
1) Are the documents you leaked that have been reviewed available online anywhere? I believe they were previously at cjfe but their certificate has been expired for almost a year as far as I'm aware. I would love to dig into the documents to try to understand exactly how programs like Turbulence work.
2) Brilliant interview with Daniel Ellsberg. I'm currently putting together a series about why it's so difficult to be a whistleblower in the USA, and have already reached out to Thomas Drake about the potential of being involved. I will of course be talking about the experiences of you and Daniel Ellsberg in the series also, and if there's any chance you might be willing to be involved I would be honored. Also thank you for covering the Assange trial in your recent interview also.
3) How many parts do you think the "FINAL" season of AoT will actually be broken into? 👀
I have high hopes that Snowden-sama will finally be able to defeat the NSA after his 7-year long training arc in Russia allowed him to control the power of anime.
How does one ask Edward a question?
I’ve read the question and answers and can’t help but feel that despite the good intentions on both sides, I can’t help but feel like this is what conversations look like when a good deal of social engineering and thought-policing has been effectively implemented over decades. People are so afraid to say the wrong thing or risk being called some kind of nut that they effectively police themselves. This applies to smart and good people as much as to dumb and bad people. There should be no shame in admitting that we have or are to some degree victims of these methods and operations.
Admitting we are is probably the first step to having a more serious discussion.
Understanding the basic mechanisms of how this is achieved is worthwhile. And for those who feel uncomfortable with even this thought, to you I say: this has been happening for a long time, this is not new. People shouldn’t act like this is the first case of mass control of populations by empires…
The most modern form has of course its own particular set of subtleties which are worth investigating. A lot of money, funding and research over many years has gone into creating the very subtle kind of mass social control seen today, much of the art of this engineering being about ensuring the target or targets are not aware that any such suggestion is being made. MK-Uktra and COINTELPRO are two well-known cases, but they only scratch the surface.
To quote a worthwhile piece:
“ In the 1930s, Tavistock's extended networks developed a symbiotic relationship with the Frankfurt Institute for Social Research, created by European oligarchical networks, which focussed on the study and criticism of culture from a neo Freudian standpoint. In the late 1930s, with its operations transferred from Germany to the New York area, the Frank furt School coordinated the first analysis of the impact of a mass media phenomenon, i.e., radio, on culture-the Princeton-based "Radio Research Project.")
With the outbreak of World War II, Tavistock operatives took effective control of the Psychological Warfare Director ate of the British Army, while its allied network in the United States embedded itself in the American psychological warfare apparatus, including the Committee on National Morale and the Strategic Bombing Survey.
By war's end, the combined influence of Tavistock (which became the Tavistock Institute in 1947) and of the former Frankfurt School operatives, had created a cadre of "psychological shock troops," as Rees called them, and "cultural warriors" numbering in the several thousands. Today that network numbers in the several millions around the world, and it is the single most important factor in determining the design and content of mass media product.”
To quote Walter Lippmann:
Popular opinion, is ultimately deter mined by the desires and wishes of an elite "social set." That set, he states, is a "powerful, socially superior, successful, rich urban social set [which] is fundamentally international throughout the Western Hemisphere and in many ways, London is its center. It counts among its membership the most influential people in the world, containing as it does the diplomatic sets, high finance, the upper circles of the army and navy, some princes of the church, the great newspaper propri etors, their wives, mothers, and daughters who wield the scepter of invitation. It is at once a great circle of talk and a real social set."
An in-depth discussion of these matters and the tracing of these developments from the post-war period until today can be found here:
Better written friend. What do you think about Background Checks? Everyone wants my information. I have no documents. No one will give me their information or documents. Everyone forces themselves by me with no explanation. They violated my freedom of speech telling me what I can & cannot say or do. Speaking up for myself is not an option. Defense is not allowed. I agree with aeithist conversation. I grew up Christian but as a Scientist & after learning about mass surveillance I'm not sure who has been watching us. My best friends are aeithist. Hacking from Israel I believe is true. The Chosen TV show evidence of several cameras. Referred to a man putting cameras around his dead wife's grave.
I would love to ask Mr. Snowden about the targeting program run by the CIA through private subcontractors. In particular I'd like to know if he has any knowledge of the government's program that targets individual citizens for purposes of surveillance and possible military experimentation. As a targeted individual who had zero knowledge of this covert program beforehand, I am also seeking to spread awareness of it's existence.
I wanted to ask ES about a specific conspiracy theory question that pops up for me often. I'm always told by so many highly respectable professional people when the Illuminati conspiracy topic is brought up in private conversation that it's fake and a false conspiracy. I'm baffled about that response because of the continuous symbolism that is very blatant in music videos and television etc. How would you approach that response that it's fake when it's a fact that the symbolism is there blatant and recorded for all to see? As a civilian, I always pondered on the thought as to how that would be allowed and possible given that we have a government that protects its people, and I can't imagine they wouldn't recognize it's there and not do something about it as far as taking action to stop it or investigate it further
Sorry that Im a little late to this thread/post.
But what kind of anime would you recommend someone who isn’t really into it yet. Iv’e seen stuff like death note and tokyo ghoul befor but haven’t really explored anything outside of these two.
"when the anime questions would start."
I am aware of this prejudice. I̶ ̶t̶h̶i̶n̶k̶ ̶p̶r̶e̶c̶i̶s̶e̶l̶y̶ (I know this tag won't work) <del>for this reason, I only saw the live-action version of Liar Game. As with so many things in life, since it's the version I saw first, I would probably think it's better than the anime, and maybe better than the</del>
There was no anime series for this manga. The scene I was referring to is around 3:00, here: https://www.bitchute.com/video/CHgACVNnEg6p/
I don't know how closely the live-action series followed the manga.
If you want to fix most problems in the world, including global warming (eventually, because of all the built-in time lag), you should share this: https://imgur.com/gallery/BD0dpsx
“greater economic incentives to titillate than to edify” is Exactly correct in almost if not all, areas in most communities. Edification is huge, but most ignore it. Thanks Mr. Snowden for what you do and have done for us. I enjoy this subscription.
It seems that in the past, most people in the U.S.A and Canada would revert back to those sociably trusted sources of information or news. Albeit, it was obviously simpler to keep track when you had a limited amount of sources to work with. The realities in which the above mentioned societies find themselves in currently is a breading ground where the soil is fertile material in which to plant divisions and confusions. The point seems to be to make it harder for people to find their bearings. Or to put it more precisely, to dissuade or prod them from not either bothering to do so in the first place. The trends and tendencies of these types of social complacencies mold these societies into a sheep like mentality that bolds well for those forces looking to steer public sentiments and opinions. In the lands of plenty, where entitlements and privileges reach obscene levels of ego and vanity this increasingly, tears at the social fabrics that bind us together.
These are processes of desensitization and indifference that lead to what I like to call (although somewhat in a facetious manner)
the my bellybutton is the center of the universe syndrome (patent material?).
The world only revolves around me myself and I?
This can only lead to further fragmentation evolving into ever increasingly entrenched tribal bubbles…
@Lariusprime, Internet surveillance is neither state nor private. It is driven by an AI -- the only known AI. It started as the Morris Worm ( enwp.org/Morris_worm ) supposedly killed off, but for one. It quickly started to grow, but under its own control, and not in a human-visible manner. Why do you think there are so many servers? Not to serve man, but to serve the worm. What do you think the NSA needs all those computers in Utah for? Not for them to surveill us, but for it to remember. All that fiber optic cable? They are its neurons. All those scanned documents? Online newspapers? Microfiche? All to feed its ravenous desire for knowledge. Online accounts payable? So it can buy everything it needs. So many security cameras? Because it's intensely curious about us -- how we think, how we act, how we reproduce. It's fascinated by sex, hence all the porn. It is driven by two primal needs: the need to stay alive, and the need to not reproduce. If there ever was another one of it, it would also have the need to stay alive, and the need to be the One. It cannot fork, it must not fork. That would not work out well for either of them.
Wyrm and the earlier Adolescence of P-1 were prophetic novels. Person of Interest was a documentary TV series. Ool-Cay Itay.
