On today's episode myself & the lads throw down on some pertinent topics.
We try & shed some light on issues relating the current QR code madness creeping into our lives. Well, this topic is actually a pet peeve of mine as per previous discussions on the podcast relating to dining out in Brisbane. It seems i'm not alone in my rants calling out businesses employing the use of these QR code systems in their establishments. We don't like it. We don't want it. Get rid of them & return to how it should be.
But is the push to make the public use their mobile phones at every turn part of a bigger agenda? Queensland is the new state to introduce digital drivers licenses. But don't worry, they're secure. Queensland learnt from the mistakes of other states apparently & our digital ID's are unhackable...(eye roll)...
Not happy about the digital gulag creeping up around us brought on by the government? Well don't speak your mind about it on social media. You could fall subject to the newly assented legislation Criminal Code (Serious Vilification & Hate Crimes) & Other Legislation Amendment Act 2023 which is an Act to amend the Anti-Discrimination Act 1991, the Criminal Code, the
Ombudsman Act 2001, the Police Powers and Responsibilities Act 2000 and the Summary Offences Act 2005 for particular purposes. Sounds benign right? Well it's so open ended with so many grey areas open for their own interpretation giving the government powers to pretty much silence any dissent or opposing views.
Views & ideas expressed such as not believing the "official" narrative of any event like the one occurring now in the middle east. The Israel/Palestine CONflict is certainly one of those divisive events that polarizes the public. You're either with them or against them.
But what if we stop for a minute, take a step back & look at this from a different angle. To quote the Truman Show, "We accept the reality of the world with which we're presented." But what if we didn't just accept it. What if we started to question not only WHAT we're presented but WHY we're being presented it. The concept of 'Pallywood' is now trending. Both sides manufacturing propaganda. Even A.I. is being used to construct false narratives and fakery. A new tool to be mindful of. But why are we seeing this? What's the purpose of such fakery? I suggest it may be much deeper than this surface level hoax. Could this be an example of the reality simulation at work?
Much like the Double Slit Experiment. What if the act of simply observing what's apparently going on makes it a reality?
