Another where’s the guild question. In this case I’m not really puzzled by the absence of a guild response because I know exactly how and when the guild was subverted and flipped. It happened 20 years ago.

The current “virus” holocaust is based HEAVILY on cheating with software.

The use of software to create and expand a fake crisis began with the Carbon Cult, with Mann’s fake hockey stick models showing exponential increase of CO2 “pollution”.

A more visible example for outsiders was VW’s diesel cheating. Diesel is intrinsically and incurably MORE DIRTY THAN GASOLINE, but the Carbon Cult flipped the comparison and redefined diesel as clean because VW bribed them to flip. VW then used software to fake the numbers. The control computer in each car sensed when the car was connected to an official test rig, and outputted artifically low numbers.

Same thing with the “virus”. Exponential models can’t possibly represent reality because reality is never exponential. Governments use the models because governments want to kill everyone. Software processes the “cases”, and HIPAA prevents us from checking the “cases”. Even if the “cases” were honestly counted, “cases” are THE WRONG FUCKING MEASUREMENT. Just as with diesel vs gasoline, the holocausters have flipped medicine upside down, redefining “cases” as dirty.

The proper MEANING of “cases” isn’t in the models, so we don’t get to hear it.

From a modern perspective it seems obvious that ABSTRACT software makes cheating easier, but this total misuse wasn’t always normal. There was a guild spirit in software that tried to protect the craft from misuse and cheating.

When did it change? 2000. Dotcom. Cheaters took over the biz.

Computing began with the government census, at a time when the government wanted accuracy. From 1890 to 1990 software mainly served corporate accounting. Computers were seen as fancy adding machines, and they were REQUIRED to be strictly honest.

Bookkeepers and their adding machines were the honest end of the system. After the bookkeeper had carefully verified the accuracy of the double-entry ledger, the accountant walked in and arbitrarily moved numbers around to cheat on taxes. This may be unfamiliar to outsiders, but it was standard procedure. You can see the setup powerfully in this Racket Squad episode.

The machine was the honest end, and the human accountant was the criminal.

The dotcommers reversed the paradigm. They used the software itself to create false impressions of their wealth and corporate solidity, then used software to manipulate the market, and had no compunction at all about ruining lives to EXPONENTIALLY increase their wealth.

More specifically, how did software switch in the public mind from an adding machine to an authority, from a fact to a command?

In the Racket Squad episode, the boss tells the bookkeeper to release an arbitrary and dishonest set of numbers. The bookkeeper refuses. Boss says “Are you calling me a liar?” Bookkeeper says “No, but my adding machine doesn’t lie either.” In that situation we can see clearly who’s lying.

The trick seems to be AI. Most people don’t understand that AI is still an adding machine. The AI hype by both commercial and governmental propagandists has persuaded us that AI can make its own decisions independent of human input, while remaining impartial and mechanical.

Can’t have it both ways. The trick conflates the demons who are writing the intentionally bad predictive models with the computer that doesn’t lie. Because the DECISION POWER has been falsely transferred to the computer, we don’t blame the demons who actually DECIDED to write counterfactual and unrealistic math models.

If most people learned math in the context of job-related problems and projects, they would understand the stages of this process better. They’d know that the PROGRAMMER can lie, even if the CPU doesn’t lie.
