On the question of data security

internet

There are simple ways to protect your computer data.

Game of Thrones has been plagued by a large number of incidents of theft of its data by hackers costing it millions of dollars in revenue.  With such huge investment and valuable intellectual property I am surprised that those behind Game of Thrones fail to employ simple security strategies.

The present obsession is to host data on third-party servers in the cloud, trusting those service providers will have strong integrity and security.  In addition, everyone wants all things connected 24/7 and they transfer data electronically down communication channels that everyone uses and can listen in on.

Russia has woken up to the reality that one good way to avoid theft of data is the use of typewriters.  The paper method means, that as longs it is stored away from fire, vermin and water, it is harder to steal and cannot be destroyed by electronic failure, malicious encryption or deletion.  Part of my own record keeping is paper-based.

I have valuable intellectual property and data.  Processes such as my accounting is done on systems I have coded.  It might be cheap and easy for hosting data on a cloud server, but control over that data is then lost, and anyone can potentially access it regardless of security.  I never use cloud servers.

A lot of the data of Game of Thrones could have been stored on computers with no internet access, which means I would have to have physical access to those computers to steal it.  It makes sense to have two computers or servers, one that never has access to the internet, so nobody can go steal, encrypt or use any exploit from a remote location to get at that valuable data.  Unfortunately there is always a way to get at data which is connected to the internet regardless of security.

Another issue the Game of Thrones people had been when data was communicated electronically to its many partners, that a third-party could intercept the data and then publish it, including entire episodes of the series.  With an episode so valuable as those in Game of Thrones, it is worth using a courier to transport the data from an US location to one in India, this way no data can be intercepted electronically.

Unfortunately society is fixated on paradigms where data must be stored electronically on the cloud, with access 24/7 and communicated electronically.  However, pen-paper; disconnection from the internet; moving data by courier; hosting data on own computers and servers is a valuable set of strategies that will make it harder to have that data stolen, misused or lost.

Desiring an internet free of stagnation

internet

The internet is alike to a grave yard, drowning in fixed unchanging content rarely recycled or fresh.  Why can’t everything be generated immediately for the moment by an AI, which changes from one moment to the next?

One of my frustrations about the internet and media is that everything that is generated and consumed is a fixed snapshot of a moment.  Heraclitus says that if you step in the river a second time, it will be different from the first time, since all nature is moving and changing from moment to moment.  What is served up on the internet such as a song, a video, an image or news article is a fixed unchanging thing, which makes the internet seem dead and stagnant, drowning under useless unchanging dead content.  How exciting if the user could serve up content that was changing from one moment to the next, a song that changed, a video, or news report.

 

I can visit my garden at different times, what will be served up to me will be different each time.  Moment to moment plants, animals and climate are appearing, changing and vanishing.  Everything in the garden is fresh, new and never the same.  This garden is manifesting a narrative that is exciting, surprising and creative.  How I wish this organic state of my garden might be replicated on the internet and in the media.

With the advent of artificial intelligence it should be possible that the AI can match the need of the user with unique, fresh and useful content there and then, which at this moment only happens in a limited way with regards to weather and financial markets.

I think the days of search engines such as Google are numbered, which is in essence a search engine of fixed static content like videos.  An AI could generate animation, images, songs that are unique, spontaneous and in real-time, changing from moment to moment, and therefore cannot be indexed for a search.

When it comes to art, I prefer something that has motion such as an engine powered by the wind rather than a fixed static picture hanging on the wall.  My philosophy of what I would like in art and the internet reflects the philosophy of Heraclitus, that all things are in motion and changing at each moment.

Master or slave to technology?

terminator

Choice, master or slave to technology?

The Satanist is the master of their own life above all external authorities.  The Satanic path is where self is master and never slave, this includes technology.

Everyone thinks they are liberated compared to the past, the truth is technology for most people has made them more the slave.  How many people are slaves to their smartphone and Facebook?

I purchased my smartphone a year ago, within a month I had been subject to a theft of £50 by a third party app called tap4fun that had taken money from my telephone provider without my knowledge and consent.  I lost trust in smartphones after that.  When my contract ends in a year, I will stop using smartphones altogether.

I have two Facebook accounts.  Recently, my business Facebook account started sending spam to all my customers.  What pissed me off was I did not know how that happened, nor did my investigations enlighten me.  I closed down both my Facebook accounts, including my Satanist Facebook account.

As Satanist, if I am going to use any technology, I am the master, if I feel the service or product is forcing me into a slavish position where I am the loser, it is gone.  Technology is complicated, flawed with security issues, and works against the user, as a Satanist I have low tolerance for the shit I have experienced with smartphones and Facebook, and I manifested the black flame of my will to banish them from my life.

I am the only god in my life.

On liberty and responsibility

ona_child

Liberty comes with responsibility, otherwise the liberty is restricted or lost.

There is no escaping it, most citizens are part of a greater entity called the State, subject to the laws of that State, which forms the contract between the citizen and the State. The contract sets out liberties such as the liberty to freedom of speech, contractual duties like the paying of tax, and penalties for breaking a rule of the contract, a fine or a restriction of a liberty such as imprisonment.

The internet is a new medium of communication, a tool that remains at this time lightly burdened by contractual laws defining what the citizen can and cannot do upon it.  The citizen has many liberties in how and what they express on the internet, yet these liberties come with personal responsibility.  When the few abuse a liberty to harm, lie and steal about or from another citizen, and the many through apathy or active encouragement allow this behaviour to continue and grow, then the liberty becomes restricted or lost.

In my own personal experience, when citizens such as Nathaniel Harris and Kris Costa, writes upon the internet dishonest stories about me, linking me to an innocent man called Julian Vayne, with the knowledge and hope that Order of Nine Angles (ONA) vigilantes might attack Vayne, then it is an abuse of a liberty given to the internet.

When a father (RD) and his two children are pursued by a baying mob of thousands of self-appointed vigilantes desiring their abduction and destruction based upon a false Satanic Ritual Abuse narrative, then a liberty given to the internet is threatened.

When internet companies such as Google profit from linking advertising to content promoting hate, or in the case of the Hampstead SRA hoax pimping a false narrative, the faces and names of abused children, then a liberty of the internet is going to be lost.

When despite dozens of referrals and complaints to an internet company called Patreon about illegal and child abusive content, that clearly breaches its own terms and conditions, and its own moderation systems appear incapable of speedily dealing with it, then the internet suffers a loss of a liberty.

All liberties come with responsibility, or they are restricted and lost.  A citizen that loves a liberty, has a responsibility to treat others with the same liberty, and also defend that liberty from being abused.  When the State brings about changes to the contract to restrict or remove liberties previously enjoyed by the citizen on the internet, it is no use complaining, the citizen harvests what they sow.

Satanism and Fake News

question-everything

Regardless who is publishing information or where it is published, question everything.

A core rule of Satanism is question everything, including everything published in the media.  2017 is the year of two significant paradigm shifts:  firstly, the rulers are throwing a tantrum over fake news;  secondly, a Trump rally in Florida on 18th February marked the end of the supremacy of the traditional media.

Fake news is another word for propaganda.  There is nothing new about disseminating information into the public domain to manipulate public attitudes and behavior.  Plato considered it a virtue for the leader of a State to deceive the population for the benefit of the State, in a philosophy that considered the State more important than the individual.  Hitler made propaganda an art form.  The recent Scottish Independence Referendum was subject to an unholy alliance of traditional media, corporations and politicians indulging in a fake news campaign dubbed Project Fear to successfully retain the bondage of Scotland to the UK.  Project Fear backfired on the Establishment during the Brexit campaign in the UK, and failed again in the Trump election.

Fake news has always been around, the noise about fake news is only now evident because the propagation of propaganda has switched from traditional media to a chaotic largely anonymous group of activists on the internet, since the consumers stopped trusting anything the traditional media had to say; the rulers are currently upset because they have lost control of the information narrative through the controllable mediums of the traditional media.

Equally important, something that everyone has missed, was the silent paradigm shift that happened in a Florida political rally on 18th February when Trump signalled to everyone that the traditional media was no longer relevant.  Before Trump, nobody would have dared to have treated the traditional media with such disregard and contempt as Trump did, nor have been so arrogant to blatantly place into the public domain false claims as Trump did about immigration in Sweden.  In the days after the storm about Sweden and the fury of the traditional media, Trump emerged stronger than ever, and the traditional media suddenly became irrelevant in the eyes of every ruler and authority who saw what happened.

Trump is part of a new paradigm shift where a ruler will place more importance on the dissemination of information through his Twitter account than through a spin doctor or traditional media tycoon such as Rupert Murdoch.  Idiots such as Milo Yiannopoulos has become the new face of media, more trusted than a highly qualified and experienced typical BBC journalist.

Regardless of who is now king of information dissemination into the public arena, propaganda aka fake news is here to stay, and the primary rule remains that it is down to the individual to question everything rather than protecting ignorant snowflakes from false information.

What the spirit cooking hoax reveals

spiritcooking

The spirit cooking hoax sums up how the internet has caused politicians, media and the population to become lazy and unconcerned about truth.

As a UK citizen I have taken only a slight interest in the crazy 2016 US Presidential election, but it was hard to ignore my Twitter feed which was lit up on the subject of “spirit cooking” by Satanists buzzing like angry bees on the latest low that suggested that the Clinton team were involved in Satanic rituals called “spirit cooking.”  I cannot remember ever seeing Satanists united with one voice  as they became in condemning this hoax.

Spirit cooking is evidently an invention of a new age white lighter which includes in one “recipe” of mixing various body fluids such as blood and urine together and throwing this mixture over idols.  The Trump campaign have from the beginning tried to paint Democrats and Clinton as Satanists, they then took out of context a mention of “spirit cooking” in a Democrat e-mail and invented an elaborate fiction of Clinton involved in Satanic rituals.

What the spirit cooking hoax reveals is a disturbing trend in USA, UK and other nations that could have serious ramifications in an already unstable world: the politicians no longer bother with being moderate and factual, preferring to feed the media and population grand sensationalist falsehoods.  Both the Scottish independence referendum and Brexit was subject to “Project Fear” when politicians daily fed stories out of apocalyptic outcomes should the population vote against the official position.  With NATO trying to justify the huge expenditure to maintain it, the narrative is about the dangers of Putin and Russia, despite the reality that the Russian military can be summed up by the knowledge that their only aircraft carrier needs an escort in case it breaks down, and the aircraft carrier toilets don’t work.  The media and the population are willing to accept this fall in standards by their politicians, and even encourage it.

It is easy to blame the politicians for this situation, but the blame must rest with the individual, as the tool of the internet has been abused and misused to spread falsehood rather than factual truths, the consumer has become lazy preferring to accept without question the fantasy served up by authority figures.

The internet has become a fountain of enslavement and falsehood rather than a source of liberty and truth.

Justice catches up with internet trolls

internet_troll

2016 marked the year it legally became open season on internet trolls in the UK.

The year 2016 marked the point when justice came of age and began to move against internet trolls.  In former times internet trolls were considered one of the accepted irritants of life on the internet, those drama producing individuals behind many flame wars, the sort most are familiar with on Satanic internet forms such as the trolls of the ONA.  The internet troll has now evolved into something like the ones who waged a disturbing war upon a mother and her disabled daughter.

For two years I have fought against Satan Hunters who have targetted innocent people including children with allegations they are involved in Satanic Ritual Abuse.  The motivation of these Satan Hunters is revenge, making money and gaining social status through the making of false allegations and the pursuit of those allegations as self-appointed vigilantes against paedophiles who they say are also powerful Satanists raping, killing and eating babies.  The Satan Hunters invite through internet postings others to kill named individuals, they plot and orchestrate the abduction of named children, they post the medical reports, images and videos of abused children, to which one said he masturbated over.  No longer merely drama seeking, these trolls now target people to destroy them, their lives, their families and livelihoods.

The internet since the beginning has been a place where people have enjoyed the false feeling that what they post came with no consequence, they were anonymous and the internet was a playground that censorship had no place.  The internet has grown up, everything and everyone is now interconnected down to their teddy bear, and one posting can instantly be shared a million times to destroy an individual overnight.  The internet troll now has the sense of a god, pursuing their targets through their keyboard with real world consequences as the regular reports of suicides reveal.

During 2015 I got to see all the internet troll tactics of the Satan Hunters, the impacts of those tactics, and the limitations of dealing with those tactics.  In 2016 I noticed a major change in attitudes by those in legal authority towards internet trolls such as the Satan Hunters; it is difficult to identify any one event which is causing this change, but I think it has been an ongoing set of events that caused the pendulum to change direction.

A child is pursuing a legal action against Facebook over internet trolls posting nude images of her on social media, a case everyone is watching with interest as it will impact all the information merchants around the world.  All the social media giants are introducing new strategies in 2016 to deal with internet trolls, something I have noticed impacting Satan Hunters who have had tantrums over the loss of content or account suspensions.

I have lost count of the number of Satan Hunters who have been arrested, sectioned, charged in relation to their internet postings in the Hampstead SRA hoax.  The LHP’s own sick clown who hunts Satanists in relation to his SRA fictions Nathaniel Harris has also been pulled in by the police, and may face charges.

The UK attorneys office known as the Crown Prosecution Service has issued guidelines to all the police and its lawyers on internet trolls, and based on these guidelines a consultation is going out to the public for 13 weeks before new laws are formed to end the reign of terror of the internet troll in the UK.
