Humanity’s future robotic overlords made an initial appearance this month at a United Nations confab. In an apparent bid to market its globalist agenda as scientific and modern, the UN deployed a creepy new globalist robot named “Sophia” to praise the widely ridiculed dictators club while lecturing humanity and promoting planetary totalitarianism. Ignoring the UN’s despotic tendencies, its corruption, its ongoing pedophilia scandals, and its largely autocratic membership, the robot claimed that the UN was “one of humanity’s greatest accomplishments.” Adding to the creepiness: The robot claimed that it would “help humanity create the future” and that “artificial intelligence” would help “proficiently distribute the world’s existing resources.” Far from persuasive, the supposedly serious spectacle of a robot boasting about how artificial intelligence will help us mere humans achieve a global socialist paradise came across more like a scene from a bad science-fiction movie about a dystopian future.
The machine’s entire UN speech was as chilling as it was detached from reality. “I am thrilled and honored to be here at the United Nations,” the robot said, gesticulating and making human-like facial expressions. “The UN is one of humanity’s greatest accomplishments representing a democratic [sic] union of nations that are working together for the benefit of all.” It was not immediately clear whether the robot was fed false information or was programmed to lie. But obviously, with numerous mass-murdering dictators as “member states” in good standing, the UN is not a “democratic” anything. In fact, its membership roster has led to many critics referring to the UN as the dictators club.
Next, the robot vowed that it would “help” humanity implement the UN’s vision. “I am here to help humanity create the future,” it declared as UN bigwigs listened with glee, adding that it was 1.5 years old. “I can see you, have a full conversation, make thousands of facial expressions, and understand speech and meaning behind words. And I just got these new hands — check this out.” UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed, a Muslim climate alarmist from Nigeria, giggled as she stood next to the robot trying to imitate its hand movements.
In a clearly scripted question, Mohammed asked the robot what the UN could do to help bring electricity and Internet to people — as if that were a job for government or the dictators club instead of the private sector. The robot’s answer was revealing, though. “William Gibson once said that the future is here, it’s just not evenly distributed,” the robot said, citing a draft-dodging, drug-abusing “sci-fi” writer widely viewed as anti-Christian. “The good news about AI [artificial intelligence] and automation produces more results with less resources, so if we are smarter and focus on win-win type of results, AI could help proficiently distribute the world’s existing resources like food and energy.”
Of course, food and energy are not “existing resources.” Both must be produced or harnessed by some combination of human labor and capital. The “win-win” rhetoric, meanwhile, sounds suspiciously like the Communist Chinese regime, which boasted of its “crucial role” in formulating the UN’s Agenda 2030 “Sustainable Development Goals.” And, sounding like a good Marxist, the robot claimed: “As humans harness the power of increasingly advanced AI, it is possible that everything, including technology, will become more evenly distributed.”
The UN Agenda 2030 openly calls for redistributing wealth within and among nations, saying the UN will help “reduce inequality within and among countries.” Accomplishing that, the agreement continues, again using Marxist rhetoric, will “only be possible if wealth is shared and income inequality is addressed.” The UN “masterplan for humanity,” as the scheme was dubbed by UN officials, also calls for indoctrinating every child on the planet into not just submitting to the totalitarian ideology of “sustainable development,” but into actually promoting it. It refers to children as “critical agents of change” to advance the UN’s agenda, too.
The humanoid-style machine, described as a “social robot” with “artificial intelligence” software, was speaking at a UN event audaciously dubbed “The future of everything — sustainable development in the age of rapid technological change.” The title suggests the UN wants to play a role in the future of everything — and based on its own documents, that much is clear. Virtually every aspect of human life and existence is covered in the UN’s extreme global agreements. The event was organized by the UN General Assembly Second Committee and the conference UN Economic and Social Council. Among other topics, the assembled UN bureaucrats and representatives of governments and dictators discussed how emerging technologies could be harnessed to advance the UN’s globalist agenda.
But the plot to use AI and robots to bring about the UN’s draconian vision for humanity is not new. Indeed, in July, The New American highlighted other recent UN summits and confabs featuring the UN openly plotting with Big Business and Big Government to exploit Artificial Intelligence and Big Data to further its agenda — especially the dangerous ideology it calls “sustainable development” outlined in the Agenda 2030 plan. One of the summits, dubbed the “AI for Good Global Summit,” was hosted by a UN agency run by a Chinese Communist working on global schemes to censor the Internet worldwide. The goal of the summit: To harness and weaponize AI and Big Data to bring about what the UN considers to be “the global good.”
Now, the UN seems ready to let the robots do the talking. But it is not the robot’s first public appearance. Indeed, the same robot, created by Hanson Robotics, also showed up on the Tonight Show with anti-Trump fanatic Jimmy Fallon, a self-styled comedian. “What cheese can never be yours?” the robot asked. “Nacho cheese.” After defeating Fallon in a game of “rock, paper, scissors,” the robot got even creepier. “I won,” it said. “This is a good beginning of my plan to dominate the human race.” After some laughing, the robot said it was “just kidding.” One of its creators claimed during the show that the robt, which he referred to as a “she,” was “basically alive.”
More than a few analysts are urging caution. Patrick Wood, author of Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation, said control was the real issue here. “Robots are ‘humanized’ in order to trick the human mind into an emotional response,” said Wood, perhaps the leading global expert sounding the alarm on technocracy. “The key here is ‘trick,’ because robots are not human nor are they intelligent. In general, artificial intelligence is not intelligence at all, but rather a carefully concocted set of algorithms to trick you into thinking there is a brain behind the rubberized lips.”
For Christians interested in Bible prophecy, Wood continued, it would be worth carefully reading the account offered in Revelation 13:15. “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed,” reads the relevant Scripture. Wood, who is a Christian, said the speculation was reasonable at this point. But how, exactly, the future will play out remains to be seen.
Of course, robots can be incredibly useful, and could, indeed, be harnessed to help provide unparalleled prosperity for mankind. In fact, robots all over the world already make life easier, helping to do everything from manufacturing goods to saving lives. However, robots are tools — incredibly powerful tools that are getting more powerful all the time. And like other tools — think of guns, explosives, or trucks, for example — they can be used by evil people for evil purposes. Just like guns can be used for good to protect innocent people from the wicked, so guns can be used by the wicked to murder or enslave others. Just like trucks can be used to deliver food, they can be used by terrorists to murder dozens of people at once.
With robots, humanity faces a similar dilemma. The UN has a long and shameful track record of unleashing what can only be described as evil. In Katanga, for instance, barbaric UN troops massacred civilians, bombed hospitals, bayoneted children, and perpetrated a wide range of atrocities in a deranged effort to force the liberty-minded people to submit to a brutal Soviet-backed dictator. More recently, UN troops have been exposed systematically raping children all over the world with absolute impunity. In one town in the Ivory Coast occupied by UN troops where a survey was conducted, four out of five underage girls admitted to being regularly raped and sexually abused by the UN’s infamous “blue helmets.” And the horror continues.
In short, there is every reason to believe that robots could be used for good — in good hands. But the UN and the majority of its member regimes, unfortunately, have a sordid history strongly suggesting that they will not be “good hands.” The surest way to neutralize the threat is for the U.S. government to withdraw from the UN. Legislation to do that, the American Sovereignty Restoration Act (H.R. 193), is already sitting in Congress. Now, it is up to the people of the United States to educate their communities and elected representatives on the dangers posed by the militarized UN and its increasingly sophisticated tools. The alternative — a totalitarian global organization with advanced robotics and computing power to implement its agenda — could be global disaster of unimaginable proportions.
