"The Culture of Singularity, Uselless Class & Digital ID"

The pace of technological change is so rapid, its impact so deep, that human life will be irreversibly transformed for good or ...for BAD.

Artificial Intelligence is nowhere near human-like existence, but 99 percent of human qualities and abilities are simply redundant for the performance of most modern jobs. For Artificial Intelligence to squeeze humans out of the job market it need only outperform us in the specific abilities a particular profession demands.

"...Historian Yuval Noah Harari offers a bracing prediction: just as mass industrialization created the working class, the Artificial Intelligence revolution will create a new unworking class."

As algorithms push humans out of the job market, wealth and power might become concentrated in the hands of the tiny elite that owns the all-powerful algorithms, creating unprecedented social and political inequality.

Alternatively, the algorithms might themselves become the owners. Human law already recognizes intersubjective entities like corporations and nations as “legal persons.” Though Toyota or Argentina has neither a body nor a mind, they are subject to international laws, they can own land and money, and they can sue and be sued in court. We might soon grant similar status to algorithms.

An algorithm could then own a transportation empire or a venture-capital fund without having to obey the wishes of any human master. Before dismissing the idea, remember that most of our planet is already legally owned by non-human intersubjective entities, namely nations and corporations.

Indeed, 5,000 years ago much of Sumer was owned by imaginary gods such as Enki and Inanna. If such gods can possess land and employ people, why not algorithms?


In the 19th century the Industrial Revolution created a huge urban proletariat, and socialism spread because no other creed managed to answer the unprecedented needs, hopes and fears of this new working class. Liberalism eventually defeated socialism only by adopting the best parts of the socialist program. In the 21st century we might witness the creation of a massive new unworking class: people devoid of any economic, political or even artistic value, who contribute nothing to the prosperity, power and glory of society. This “useless class” will not merely be unemployed — it will be unemployable.


A digital ID is critical for keeping the masses from rebelling against the proposed reforms.


The idea behind digital identities is simple enough. All the data collected from EVERY online interaction you make with the private and public sectors goes into forming your digital identity. Thus, your digital identity becomes an account of your social behavior, which can be policed. With the proposed Internet of Bodies, not only would your every societal behavior be recorded, but also everything you did in private. As far as a social engineering experiment goes, when people know that their every move is being recorded, they will police themselves into conformity. Just knowing that they’re being watched will cause people to change their behavior, and this makes the job of the technocrats even easier.


The digital identity push under the ‘great reset’ agenda risks enabling an authoritarian social credit system on a global scale: perspective

When a sweeping solution to a hyper-generalized problem oversteps the boundaries of personal privacy and liberty, the solution poses a greater threat to the people than the problem it proposes to solve. As part of its “great reset” agenda to reshape the global economy, the World Economic Forum (WEF) wants everyone on the planet to be linked with a digital identity. “This digital identity determines what products, services and information we can access – or, conversely, what is closed off to us” — WEF report And while digital identities show great promise towards improving the livelihoods of millions, they are also used by authoritarian governments to profile and police citizen behavior under a social credit system. The idea behind digital identities is simple enough. All the data collected from every online interaction you make with the private and public sectors goes into forming your digital identity. This data can include your personal:

  • Search history

  • Social media interactions

  • Online profiles

  • Device location

  • Medical records

  • Financial ledgers

  • Legal documents

  • And more

As far as personal convenience goes, having a digital identity that consolidates everything into one place can be a godsend in that you can use your digital identity for a variety of goods and services wherever you go, and all of your data can be secured on the blockchain. But, like with any technology, trust comes from knowing how it’s used, and knowing who benefits the most from the people who use it. “With a few tweaks of code, blockchain can be corrupted by authoritarians to build social credit enslavement systems,” Trent Lipinski recently warned in the Coin Telegraph. “If world governments legislate encryption technology for their own purposes and pervert consensus mechanisms for their own centralized enslavement systems, we will end up with digital currencies that can be used against the people of the world,” he added. “What the Fourth Industrial Revolution will lead to is a fusion of our physical, our digital, and our biological identities” — Klaus Schwab, WEF On the flip side, there are many ways of applying this technology for the good of humanity. For example, last week, the WEF highlighted an app developed by Irish blockchain company AID:Tech, which helps people without official documents create personal legal identities. However, there’s a big difference between identity and identification. Providing a piece of identification to someone who didn’t have official documents to begin with is one thing; it’s an entirely different matter when the concept is expanded to including connecting every person on the planet with a digital identity that keeps a tamper-proof record of their behavior. Identity encompasses everything that makes you unique, and your identity is what the WEF is really interested in. Step out of line, and every social media interaction in which you partake, every penny you trade, and every move you make — can be used against you According to a WEF report from 2018, “Our identity is, literally, who we are, and as the digital technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution advance, our identity is increasingly digital.” Similarly, WEF Founder Klaus Schwab predicted that the Fourth Industrial Revolution would bring about the “fusion of our physical, our digital, and our biological identities.”
