I’m still waiting for the conference room under the hospital and the room full of red explosive barrels. In the end it turns out that this whole thing is not about Hamas at all, just about harassing and killing civilians. Ever since Americans got their butts kicked by Vietnam, they’ve been terrified to even go down to the basement. They say among themselves in the tower that war is necessary. That there are too many of us. Think about it: there are a lot of people on the planet. At least for some people there are a lot. Let’s face it, eight billion is not a small number. But I for one would not call eight billion people living on earth overpopulation. It is communicated that the world’s population has already exceeded eight billion, but such a claim is the easiest thing in the world to make. Honestly, who can test the veracity of that claim? With the deaths caused by silicidal vaccines and the diseases that have been contracted or amplified, with the outbreak of several major wars, we can be sure that the population of the earth has been reduced. For my part, I not only believe this, I know it for a fact. I have seen a statistic about this, which, of course, could be described as a cosmeticisation of reality. However, I saw what was happening at the beginning of the vaccination campaigns, and the succession of worse and worse events in the world led me to conclude that this particular statement was true, and that the one that is growing exponentially
But you can always scare people with this kind of thing and force a kind of necessary action on people. It’s no secret that the world is destined by the elite to be the children of Silicon Valley, robots brought to life by artificial intelligence as a raw material. In Hungarian shops and stores, too, automatic cash registers are being produced almost at a run rate, with the option of cash payments still available for the time being. A cashier in a shopping mall told me, when I jokingly asked her if they would soon be out of work, that there were simply not enough people to fill the many vacancies. Why all these vacancies in the first place? Obviously, mass emigration abroad is one of the main reasons, but that is not the most important thing right now, I want to focus on something else. In comparison, the Hungarian media are informing the masses that people are fed up with the impersonal automatic teller machines and are demanding the return of the flesh-and-blood salesmen without delay.
Whether this demand and demand belongs to the older social class, or equally to the middle-aged, or even to the young, I do not know. I have spoken to not one, but many middle-aged people – and even young people – who do not want the impersonal and cold future of artificial intelligence instead of flesh and blood. However, there is now a proliferation of cynical young people who see Orwell and 1984 as not trendy, Animal Farm as not trendy, and who see them as mere fairy tales instead of serious message-bearing works, or simply ignore their very existence. It is not possible to have a serious dialogue until the public takes seriously all the real dangers that Orwell drew attention to in his books. They laugh and say that, yes, the apparatchiks are probably wondering what Uncle Josie was doing on the road between his workplace and his home, two hundred metres away, where he only went into the local pub and grocery store.
And all the signs are that they are curious. When you have to tape down your laptop camera, when the most popular social networking site is free to use people’s data and trade with them at any time, you can’t just say, in a sarcastic way or any other way, that they’re not interested in you. When they are poking their noses up your nose with a stick to trade your genetics, you cannot categorically say that, yes, they are probably interested in you, the panel proles.
Need a flesh-and-blood seller? You might have thought of that before! The flesh-and-blood cashiers must be so fed up that they can’t even go to the bathroom with all the customers. All those convenient and selfish people. What were these people thinking, honestly? That if technology had come this far, then suddenly everything would stop? Now you have to go through the process, there is no turning back. You have to reach the end point, you have to experience the catharsis. For a new human coming together, to lay the foundations for a new human cohesion. People should have stood up when they mechanized agriculture and pushed synthetic food into the cities. You can go out into the fields and farm and raise animals, just like our great-grandparents did back in the day. We can throw our mobile phones and computers out the window and surround ourselves with flesh and blood people. Need a flesh-and-blood salesman? So we need flesh and blood people? Well, go on then.
