Meta removes even more humanity | 'PLAN 2025': Anne Nelson on Destroying America's infrastructure from within.


The Future of AI in Social Networks & The Threats of Project 2025

Cary Harrison takes you into the evolution of social networks led by Meta, formerly Facebook, towards the creation of synthetic social networks utilizing AI to generate chatbots mimicking celebrities and creators. He discusses the growing interest in AI interactions, the shift in the meaning of friendships due to social media, and how our interactions may become indistinguishable between humans and bots. Interviewed is Ed Watal, a tech expert who discusses the potential misuse of AI, including deepfakes and cyber threats, alongside his work on an Ethical AI Platform. Later, superhero Anne Nelson exposes 'Project 2025,' a secretive initiative aimed at dismantling government and civil liberties. (Anne Nelson, author of 'Shadow Network') highlights the project's dangers, including its impact on environmental policies and civil liberties, gays, guns, and all of Europe.

Navigating the Ethical Maze of AI in Social Media: The Rise of Synthetic Relationships**

In the digital age, the intersection of technology, social media, and artificial intelligence (AI) has reshaped our lives in unprecedented ways. As we delve into this complex web, the emergence of "synthetic relationships" fostered by AI, particularly through platforms like Meta (formerly Facebook), presents a paradigm shift in how we interact online.

By introducing chatbots mimicking celebrities, Meta has laid the foundation for a future where digital personas and synthetic relationships flourish. The concept might sound bizarre, but it underscores a reality where the lines between genuine and artificial interactions blur.

**The Illusion of Connection**

Cary Harrison progresses by highlighting the illusion of connection that social media platforms have nurtured. With platforms enabling users to accumulate thousands of "friends," the essence of true friendship dilutes. This critique isn't about vilifying social media but rather spotlighting its potential misuse, drawing parallels with historical propaganda techniques.

Facebook's pivot towards a creator-centric model, influenced by platforms like TikTok, further complicates this relationship. The discussion touches on the ethical ramifications of AI-generated content and its role in shaping the internet's future, emphasizing the need for a discerning approach to online interactions.

**Guest Insights: Ed Watal**

The conversation with Ed Watal, an expert in cybersecurity and founder of Intellibus, introduces a critical perspective on the challenges and opportunities presented by AI. Watal dives into the concept of "deepfakes" and their potential for fraudulent activities, stressing the need for vigilance and ethical frameworks in AI development. His insights into open-source vulnerabilities and the risk of manipulated information echo the urgency for ethical guidelines in the digital landscape.

Watal's vision for an "ethical AI platform" proposes a model where the integrity of information, respect for copyright, and the protection of public domain are paramount. This approach not only safeguards against unethical data practices but also advocates for a future where AI serves humanity's best interests, without compromising ethical standards.

**Embracing Ethical AI**

The exploration into the realms of AI and social media through "Rethinking Heroes" not only sheds light on the current landscape but also poses significant questions about the future we are constructing. As we forge ahead, the emphasis on ethical AI and the preservation of authentic human connections will undoubtedly play a pivotal role in shaping a digital environment grounded in integrity, accountability, and genuine engagement.

"Project 2025: Unveiling The Blueprint for America's Future"

**Introduction to Project 2025**

Cary speaks with Anne Nelson, a renowned author, international affairs expert, and journalism award winner. Nelson offers a critical examination of the ideological underpinnings and strategic goals of Project 2025, shedding light on its potential impacts on America's governance, environmental policies, and public health. Crafted by influential entities such as the Heritage Foundation and Koch Industries, this plan proposes sweeping changes that have the potential to radically alter the future of the United States.

**The Creators Behind The Scheme**

The Heritage Foundation, well-known for its conservative policy advocacy, together with Koch Industries—yes, the very same that supplies much of the country's toilet paper—have been at the forefront of this ambitious blueprint. Their vision, however, extends far beyond mere policy changes, stirring deep concerns about its implications for democracy, the environment, and societal norms.

**The Objectives of Project 2025**

Delving into the specifics, Project 2025 aims for a dramatic reshaping of the nation's legislative and judicial frameworks. It proposes to dismantle and restructure federal agencies, some of which were established during Nixon's presidency as safeguards for public welfare and environmental protection.

**The Strategic Media and Digital Campaigns**

Nelson elucidates on the sophisticated digital and media strategies employed by the proponents of Project 2025. Through their well-funded platforms, they've launched a pervasive campaign to sway public opinion and political outcomes. These strategies include misinformation about climate change, undermining public health initiatives, and promoting divisive societal norms.

**The Environmental and Social Implications**

One of the most alarming aspects of Project 2025 is its overt assault on environmental protections. The blueprint calls for dismantling the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and renouncing international climate agreements. Moreover, it harbors regressive stances on women's rights, LGBTQ+ rights, and public education, aiming to roll back decades of progress in these areas.

**Conclusion: The Path Forward**

As citizens and stakeholders of democracy, the revelations about Project 2025 serve as a wake-up call. It underscores the necessity for informed participation in the political process, critical thinking in assessing information, and a collective effort to safeguard democratic values and public welfare. In the face of such a pivotal turning point, engagement, advocacy, and vigilance are more crucial than ever.
