Whether it’s business or personal, centralization represents the road to serfdom.
Friedrich Hayek, like other classical liberal economists, knew the score (The Road To Serfdom being one of his pamphleteer works). He knew the score so well, in fact, that his detractors have been trying for decades to trick the unsuspecting into confusing classical liberalism with neoliberalism — the “neo” prefix representing a notable divergence from that which existed earlier. Superman, for example, typified classical gnostic nonsense, whereas Neo of The Matrix was able to become The One Who Is Truly Beyond Good And Evil.
If such a 20th Century comparison doesn’t seem to you to be all that divergent, consider instead the modern Superwoman-styled character named Tris (is that perhaps short for Trismegistus?). Better still, allow Aleph Infotinuum Services to retreat from the film-based analogies by exposing a more relevant neognostic swindle: The Cloud.
The infotinuum is, of course, all about the information. AIS helps forward-thinking enterprises to avoid gnostic traps whereby insecure employees try to protect the information that they know — try to occult it, if you will — for purposes of artificial job security. Such personal insecurity can and does lead to business insecurity of the insolvent variety.
Indeed, all too often protectionism runs roughshod over entire societies. At the time of this blog post, the United States of America finds itself headed into just such a make-it-great economic spiral. In classical wax-and-wane fashion, the Chinese bureaucracy appears to be picking up a standard of neoinflationary socialist fraud, much as America’s own inflationary faux rise coincided with the decline of the British Empire (which succeeded the Spanish Empire … and so on back through history to Nimrod and beyond). The 19th Century Political Economy essayist Frederic Bastiat also knew the score when he penned the following: “The State is that great fiction by which everyone strives to live at the expense of everyone else.”
Such folly has everything to do with a bureaucratic pretense of centralized wisdom — with a philosopher king canard shared among a group of self-styled juris doctor aristocrats (i.e. those who pretend to be in a position to create rules which everyone must follow even though no one signed any particular contract). As socialist fraud encroaches upon a society, that pretense of centralized wisdom impacts markets in ways which manifest as slippery slopes toward totalitarianism of either the Soviet-style command variety or the Nazi-style zwangswirtschaft variety. Businesses, meanwhile, get caught in the authoritarian vice, while consumers get crushed underfoot since more and more people start considering their time spent as a producer (desperate to “keep up” with the rising prices which inflation causes but which bureaucrats blame on markets) to be more important than their time spent as a consumer (which still represents the vast majority of everyone’s day-to-day activities — even while at work trying to produce something for income).
Speaking of being at work, your employer consumes the information that stakeholders are willing to share, and devises important infotinuum strategies to liberate as much as possible from those employees who would prefer to silo their self-important enterprise gnosis. Government insists, though, upon liberating all information for its exclusive use, which typically amounts to sealing it away and posting gatekeepers everywhere (recall Raiders of the Lost Ark‘s closing “Top men” scene and its seemingly endless warehouse facility). Secreting away information is the lynchpin of all schemes for suppressing freedom.
In today’s hyperconnected world, information is increasingly hyperavailable. Information sets with the greatest secreting potential include profiles that Big Data number crunchers can compile from the hyperavailable information. A key goal for Neoatlantians seeking absolute global dominance is to centralize all information, and to that end they and their secret societies are turning toward the businesses which they have caught in their authoritarian vice.
Fellow secret society members are, obviously, exempt from any bureaucratic vice treatment that is not an element of their fraternal/sororal blood vows. Their enterprises and NGOs receive carrots instead, in the form of insider access to fabian developments. One such development has been the thin client long con, an effort to convince profane computer users that they can trust their private data and their processing requirements to one or more third parties.
Back in the days of PCs and BBSs, people logging on understood better than to relinquish control, so in recent decades the grifter pitch has been revolving more around the refined concept of mobile devices as so-called primary screens. Since the consumer masses have started going online, their relative lack of technological savvy as compared with the BBS users of 30 years ago has presented a chance for those lurking third parties to claim that they created something new called The Cloud and that anyone who doesn’t have their face buried in their mobile device is uncool and that everyone who knows anything at all will trust the convenience of thisbox or thatdocs or facetheother for handling the boring bits.
What’s more, these mobile-first users include entrepreneurs and business managers who tend to jump aboard the newbie train regarding most IT-related decisions. Delegation of responsibility is the name of the fake-it-until-you-make-it game within any bureaucracy, with thoughtless and shortsighted strategies playing right into the hands of those who peddle not-so-convenient-in-the-end solutions which cost a freedom sacrifice to the vice of secret societies and Total Information Awareness.
That is why AIS chooses to be a cloudbuster. That is why AIS will help your employer keep its private data on-base.
