25 ways Silicon Valley resembles the former Soviet Union


Image: 25 ways Silicon Valley resembles the former Soviet Union

(Natural News) A list has gone viral after the last few days, describing the ways in which Silicon Valley resembles the old Soviet Union, a communist regime complete with “re-education camps” and political spies.

Silicon Valley, of course, is run by rabid Leftists, who closely resemble communists in their philosophy of authoritarianism, incompetence and aggression toward others. As you’ll see in the list below, Leftists in Silicon Valley are following the communist playbook almost point by point. I’ve taken the list that originally appeared in The Christian Journal and augmented it with a few of my own observations, taking it to a full 25.

Read this list and you’ll realize why all liberty-loving citizens need to defeat Democrats at every election.

25 ways Silicon Valley resembles the former Soviet Union

  1. Mandatory workplace political education (i.e. Starbucks, Google, Facebook, etc.).
  2. The United States as a whole is depicted as evil by default.
  3. Workers are viewed as political pawns to be weaponized against political opponents rather than unique creators with their own ideas.
  4. You wait for years to receive a car you ordered, only to find it’s of poor workmanship and quality.
  5. You’re told that you’re part of a high-tech utopian sci-fi automated manufacturing mecca, but it turns out you actually work in a giant open-air tent where products are kludged together by hand to meet make believe production goals.
  6. Failures are bizarrely upheld as triumphs. (Note all the Obama-era government grant money to now-defunct “green energy” companies that produced nothing.)
  7. Lapdog media “journalists” fawn over incompetent leaders while censoring good ideas.
  8. Fellow workers are promoted for being the right “class” of protected victim groups rather than anything based on qualifications or competence. This, in turn, leads to the most incompetent leaders rising to the top and running everything into the ground.
  9. The currency most people are talking about is fake and worthless.
  10. Your abhorrent working and living conditions are justified by bosses who claim you’re “under attack” by whatever named political enemy the Politburo says is responsible for all the problems in the world. (The current boogeyman is Trump.)
  11. You’re treated to promises of colonizing the solar system while you toil in drudgery day in, day out, in s##thole collapsing cities covered in human feces and ruled by morons. (San Francisco, anyone?)
  12. You get to experience living with five adults in a two-room apartment while being told you’re part of the “resistance” that can only regain power by crashing the economy and driving even more people to desperation.
  13. Each day, the amount of money needed to buy a modest home skyrockets compared to your own wages, to the point where “high-tech” workers are the new homeless in California.
  14. You’re routinely told you are constructing utopia while the system crumbles around you.
  15. ‘Totally not illegal taxi’ taxis by private citizens moonlighting to make ends meet.
  16. Everything slaved to the needs of the military-industrial complex.
  17. Productivity is largely falsified to satisfy appearance of sponsoring elites. (It’s all fake news, fake innovation, fake market valuations and fake earnings.)
  18. Deviation from mainstream narrative carries heavy social and political consequences. (You lose your job and reputation, and you’re blacklisted by other potential employers.)
  19. All the central planning failures of the past are said to have occurred only because “the right people” weren’t running things. The future will be bright, you’re told, if only the most radical Leftists are finally given unlimited power to control your life and tell you what to think.
  20. Blind conformity is considered a virtue, while individual expression and cognitive diversity are rooted out and punished. This is, of course, all carried out in the name of “progress.”
  21. Otherwise extremely intelligent people toil away, just turning the crank because it’s the only way to get ahead in a society that punishes individualism.
  22. The plight of the working class is discussed mainly by people who do not work.
  23. Everybody runs around demanding to be paid for producing nothing. Today it’s called the “Universal Basic Income,” but it’s really just universal welfare for the dumbed-down masses.
  24. The economy is centrally planned, using opaque algorithms not fully understood even by their own creators. “Black box” economics dominates finance discussions as monetary debasement steals wealth from the workers, to be concentrated in the hands of the politically-connected elite.
  25. Citizens are told by the fake news media whom to love, whom to hate, how to think, which words are banned and which words are encouraged. Soon, people who used to be men and women find themselves talking like gender-confused fairy-queer trans-morons babbling out complete nonsense.

Sponsored solution from the Health Ranger Store: The Big Berkey water filter removes almost 100% of all contaminants using only the power of gravity (no electricity needed, works completely off-grid). Widely consider the ultimate "survival" water filter, the Big Berkey is made of stainless steel and has been laboratory verified for high-efficiency removal of heavy metals by CWC Labs, with tests personally conducted by Mike Adams.

About the author: Mike Adams (aka the “Health Ranger“) is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com called “Food Forensics“), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics. Follow his videos, podcasts, websites and science projects at the links below.

Mike Adams serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation. He has also achieved numerous laboratory breakthroughs in the programming of automated liquid handling robots for sample preparation and external standards prep.

The U.S. patent office has awarded Mike Adams patent NO. US 9526751 B2 for the invention of “Cesium Eliminator,” a lifesaving invention that removes up to 95% of radioactive cesium from the human digestive tract. Adams has pledged to donate full patent licensing rights to any state or national government that needs to manufacture the product to save human lives in the aftermath of a nuclear accident, disaster, act of war or act of terrorism. He has also stockpiled 10,000 kg of raw material to manufacture Cesium Eliminator in a Texas warehouse, and plans to donate the finished product to help save lives in Texas when the next nuclear event occurs. No independent scientist in the world has done more research on the removal of radioactive elements from the human digestive tract.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and American Indians. He is of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his “Health Ranger” passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world’s first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed “strange fibers” found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health “gurus,” dangerous “detox” products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over fifteen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
