In order to get a heads up from every possible vector that might avail them, I follow many PR departments of organizations that I consider hostile to me, and consider me prey IMHO.
Of course, none of them say they intend to harm humanity. The most tyrannical oppressors ubiquitously claim to be 'the good guys', intent on universally blessing mankind - even as they craft the chains they intend to bind us in slavery with.
This requires that I pull my head out of the gaping void between the two cheeks of the two party system that controls society today, so that I can see clearly the flapping of the left cheek and the right, as they beat together the sound and fury that accompanies the outrageous stench of tyranny they emit between them.
It requires that I grasp the fantastic hallucinations that impel those I disagree with to fervently support crimes against humanity from their perspective, and to rationally ascribe to those I find spew rhetoric I deeply resonate with the duplicity and malice that is behind them, in the shadows where the funds for them come. It is difficult betimes to watch my cherished hopes dashed.
But it is the reality we live in, and that reality doesn't care about my hope.
The Audacious Project has produced this effort that claims to be aimed at stopping pandemics.
However, what it really does is increase the power of Big Pharma, and commoditize humanity to the point of utter chattelization. Not one word I read here even pays lip service to the potential of individual sovereign persons to themselves undertake even the least bit of the power this project unleashes, despite the ongoing decentralization of the technology that is being deployed. Individual people are only considered from the perspective they are utterly hapless victims or beneficiaries - never acting themselves to secure their lives.
In the video describing the Sentinel project, for each of the headings mentally substitute the word 'Surveillance' because that will enable you to consider how Big Pharma will profit from Sentinel - and of course, that is the point of their involvement in the view of their investors.
It's audacious alright. However, unless you're relatively current with the state of the art, it is hard to spot that the audacity is actually in how power over people is delivered to overlords, by centralizing technology instead of enabling people themselves.
Some points to consider that are not stated in the video (linked to above, which is what I rebut here), are that individual people will be submitting to being sampled, and in Africa it's easy to project that individuals will not be considered sovereign, in charge of their bodies, nor how they're sampled. Child slavery is common there and underlies massive industries like electric cars, phones, and batteries that use children under threat of death and ruthlessly oppressed and abused by their captors to mine coltan for the chips in your phones or Tesla Roadster, or pick cocoa pods for your lattes.
Human rights aren't even a factor in Sentinel. They just take the samples by default. There's no discussion of environmental DNA, which has revealed that DNA isn't required to be extracted from living organisms to be detected. No discussion of personal privacy or HIPAA. No hint that people have a right not to be tracked and traced utterly by corporations and governments alike.
Make no mistake: this isn't a program any but the most hippy dippy zealots looking through rose colored glasses could view as beneficial to human freedom and dignity, but is the imposition of absolute ownership and possession of humanity as the property of monied interests for medical research.
There's no coincidence that it is being developed in Africa, where human rights effectively do not exist, and slavery is the norm; where utter penury makes inconceivable the individual ownership of the means of production by any but warlords or corrupt NGOs.
Even if you drink the koolaid and fear pandemic drummed up as a boogeyman enough to keep you penned up in the corral where overlords keep their cattle, it's possible to view history and how overlords have murdered hundreds of millions of hapless victims in the 20th Century - far more than have died of any particular pandemic illness during that time.
Make that comparison, if you have previously considered pandemic so terrifying that you would consider any demand of overlords reasonable if they implied it was to keep you safe. Those making such demands are far more likely to kill you than what they claim to defend you against.
Nothing is more deadly to people, more threatens humanity itself, than overlords claiming to protect them, because those overlords propose to protect their property - not free people. Slavery is no improvement over death, withal. Slaves have no human rights. Accept slavery and you are no longer human. You have died as a human being, and become property.
There is no survival through slavery. Only free people continue to live as human beings.
