How The United Nations Admittedly Astroturfed The Internet Into Believing The Narrative
There’s a story going viral on Twitter lately that's come to the public eye long after it's been publicly available online.
A podcast recorded in October of 2020 posted to the World Economic Forum’s website talks about how (at that time) the UN had hired north of 110,000 "Digital First Responders" to astroturf the internet into believing the narrative!
Here’s the article below which also houses other hyperlinked articles of interest that corroborate it:
This isn't a conspiracy theory, this is a legitimate and publicly admitted conspiracy. And it's by no means the only one of it's kind.
You’ll, no doubt, be aware of the long understood practice of Russian “troll farms” that use large numbers of people to actively subvert the narrative of important topics online to lean towards the Kremlin’s interests. Be it distrust or dissent or full on division and infighting.
Even the US itself admittedly hired Tik Tok, YouTube and Instagram influencers during the pandemic to seed the official administration’s messages into the minds of their millions of followers.
Whether it’s the pandemic: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/01/technology/vaccine-lies-influencer-army.html
Or the Ukraine: https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2022/03/11/tik-tok-ukraine-white-house/
The most disturbing part of this UN astroturfing, though, is the fact that it’s coming from the UN. An international and (by definition) supra-national organization that can take these sorts of national campaigns across all the major borders of the free world at once.
This speaks exactly to the kind of power that the head of the WEF, Klaus Schwab, has been speaking to since his first book printed in the 1970s regarding a term he coined called “stakeholder capitalism”. In this economic model, massive supra-national corporations and entities make the big decisions for the world at large through the ubiquitous network of their shared control throughout a highly digitized world society.
With entities like the UN, the WHO, or the WEF - world wide, sweeping and unilateral actions like the use of over 110,000 digital thought police to empower the goal of their choice - power us taken away from each nation and usurped into the hands and minds of unelected technocrats.
Disinformation is real. Learning how to spot it is critical in the digital environment we exist in. And it's a favorite weapon if the same people who will label you with that term to discredit you.
Know your enemies in the information war, and know how they move.
