Technology has transformed the 21st-century public square into a globalized web of instant communication, accessible from anywhere, open to everyone.

Personal relationships, professional careers, 24/7 news feeds, public opinion, politics, propaganda, shopping, commerce, pornography, stockmarkets, digital content ad infinitum.

Every day, entire populations converge online via social media.

Technology facilitates this global community of almost 4 billion people (and counting).

It is evolving society at an unprecedented pace.

But the internet has not democratized our world.

93% of all online usage routes through just seven corporate platforms.

Everything we do online generates data. Every interaction, every choice, recorded by our devices, harvested by the Silicon Valley cartel.

This “big data” was first used to make smart curation algorithms, to keep us engaged and select adverts that best match our interests.

Machine learning accelerates pattern matching into precise demographic profiling. Algorithms grow ever more sophisticated.

Addiction is the secret heart of free-market consumer economics.

Trillion dollar corporations – whether Facebook or Fox – apply vast data science resources to get you addicted; curating content to keep you passively receptive to advertised stimulus.

Institutional power has moved into this space. Addiction algorithms apply equally to political ideology. Polarization is just the tip of totalitarian propaganda strategy, enabled by tech, propagated online.

Data has become a weaponized commodity in the evolving power dynamic between the individual consumer and the market forces of profit and politics.

Big tech’s monopoly of the popular platforms exploits the asymmetry between us – the public – and an unholy convergence of corporate and institutional interests.

The public square is no longer in the hands of the people.

Profiling algorithms and artificial intelligence, in service of corporate-government masters, have changed the rules of the game. Classical free market theory no longer applies.

Curated experience is rapidly becoming a closed circuit, propagating only the consumer products and political messaging of officially sanctioned mainstream.

Demographic identity-enforcement corals confirmation bias. Individuals no longer reach the broader community without permission. Dissent cries unheard into the void.

 

Hundreds of organic posts won’t trend unless amplified by algorithms and gatekeepers; which never happens if a subject runs contrary to official agenda.

Professional influencers and tech-savvy hypernormalization actors under political direction manufacture trending content into the public narrative.

86.4% of all English-language viral campaigns originate this way.

Free-thinkimg individuals will suffer the same fate as the oblivious mainstream unless we’re armed with effective ways to resist the confluence of tech, economic incentives and authoritarian self-interest.

Traditional methods of public expression have become useless or unrealistic.

Advertising is no longer local. Innovation resources are strictly regulated. 

Investigative journalism is marginalized out of sight. Street protest and petitions are short-lived, ignored.

Non-conformist voices are diverted into irrelevant echo chambers; or de-platformed. None are ways to be heard, let alone dissent.

Society must not be subordinated to a single technocratic orthodoxy.

Manipulation by consumer addictions or group outrage degrades us, as individuals, to mere playthings of corporate-government brand name cartels.

Public narrative – our essential cultural discourse – must be more than the self-serving script of a fake duopoly.

There can be no exclusive control of the public square.

Rabblr is a tool to push back – privately or publicly at scale – against corporate-oligarchy domination.

Rabblr is cutting-edge tech designed to restore citizen access to the public conversation.

RabblR is a multipurpose ecosystem that proliferates the legitimate impact of coordinated individual action.

RabblR uses pioneering science to re-democratize communication, allowing users to compete with the precision of artificial intelligence algorithms.

RabblR restores the meaning and the spirit of citizen democracy to real-world society, balancing the scales of online influence where they belong: one-man, one-vote.

Rabblr employs powerful algorithm-targeting, exponential org-focus tools, real-time sapient-action-nexus and unique collaboration models. Because RabblR is not a “bot” its universal cipher unlocks the gatekeeper algorithms; with none of the dishonest anonymity of high-priced B2B social media manipulation.

RabblR concentrates the power of the Many – the only authentic civil influence in society – against the algorithms and tech-gatekeepers, to break the corporate-institutional monopoly.

RabblR is Kratos restored to Dēmos

“Social media lets the public feel like a participant in the public conversation; while devices collect behavioural data on behalf of the platforms, to better hone the power of institutional influence.”

– Chris Hedges

 

This is the point of no return I could never go back
Life without parole up state shackled and trapped
Living in the hole, lookin’ at the world through a crack
But fuck that, I’d rather shoot it out and get clapped
I’ve gone too far, there ain’t no coming back for me
Auschwitz gas chamber full of Zyklon-B
Just like the Spanish exterminating Tainos
Raping the black and Indian women
Creating Latinos.
