You simply cannot make this stuff up. The CIA and MI5 continue to shoot themselves in the toes and are indirectly and unintentionally destroying the New World Order project. How?
It was reported that the CIA and MI5
“have the ability to hack certain Samsung smart TVs which can then be operated as a listening device even when the televisions are switched off….Launched as a premium smart TV in 2013 the F8000 series has the ability to be controlled by the viewer using voice and motion sensors and has been distributed globally…
“Audio could be obtained even when the TV appeared to be off, using a ‘Fake-Off’ mechanism that took control of the LED light…”The document revealed that the CIA and MI5 developed the ability to extract browser and WPA/Wi-Fi credentials and history, with plans to develop a ‘Fake-Off’ mechanism for WiFi, enabling them to transfer data even when WiFi appears to be off.”
Obviously we have serious problem here. Weren’t puppets and political whores like John McCain and the Neoconservatives saying that we ought to attack Russia because Russia hacked the US election? Weren’t they positing dumb things such as Russia must pay? Who is going to make the CIA and MI5 pay for this covert operation?
What these people end up saying is that if the CIA and MI5 snoop on you, then it is all right. But if Russia “snoops” on them, then Russia must be expunged! The Washington Post has recently reported that the CIA is even using cars to spy on “billions of users worldwide…Televisions, smartphones and even anti-virus software are all vulnerable to CIA hacking.”
Will John McCain make the CIA and MI5 pay? Let’s quote John McCain himself: “When you attack a country, it’s an act of war.” He was referring to the so-called Russian hacking. But when the CIA and MI5 attack a country, McCain seems to be saying, it is an act of kindness and generosity.
Where did they dig these people up? When will they start being responsible?
Obviously these people aren’t following what Immanuel Kant calls the categorical imperative, which prohibits mumbo-jumbo in the political landscape. Some people have responded to Kant’s argument by saying things like “Everything can be rationalized or explained mechanistically according to Kant. Someone acting emotionally acts so because of various factors that are traceable.”
Another individual responded by saying, “Kant was both right and wrong in his ideology. Yes man can and should be rational. But the rationale of the powerful differs from that of the powerless to the degree of the magnitude of that power. As it has been said, power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Another commenter declared:
“Kant’s ‘universal law’ can be interpreted to mean ‘one rule of law by one world government that is totalitarian, socialist and oppressive’ that supersedes all sovereign nation-state’s constitutional rules of law. Philosophers are servants of their political masters.”
Obviously these people aren’t paying attention to the parameters that Kant established, and we certainly cannot flesh out Kant’s entire argument here. These people will have to get Kant’s Groundwork for the Metaphysics of Morals or Foundations of the Metaphysics of Morals or get any source on Kant’s argument for morality.
Let us just mention one issue in passing. Kant made it very clear that the categorical imperative doesn’t depend on one’s feelings and emotions or even pain and suffering! Any totalitarian, socialist and oppressive” state is antithetical to the categorical imperative. One cannot rationalize any behavior. So, the rationale of the powerful differs from that of the powerless precisely because the powerful do not base their premises on rationality. They base their premises on greed, lust, appetite, and colossal hoaxes and fabrications, which can hardly be rational.
In short, Kant would have certainly rejected the New World Order ideology precisely because it is against the moral law and order. Kant would have also questioned what the CIA and MI5 have been doing for the past fifty years or so. And he morally would have cut John McCain to pieces.
