“Controligarchs” — the billionaires who are part of the “most exclusive club in the world” — want to “control every aspect of your life” and plan to use Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a vehicle to do so, Seamus Bruner told told Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk an interview discussing his new book Controligarchs: Exposing the Billionaire Class, their Secret Deals, and the Globalist Plot to Dominate Your Life.
As Bruner explains in his book, a group of billionaires — including Bill Gates, David Rockefeller, George Soros, Ted Turner, Michael Bloomberg, Warren Buffett, Oprah Winfrey, and the heads of major corporations like Cisco, Blackstone Group, and Tiger Management — met at Rockefeller University in Manhattan in the spring of 2009 “to figure out how they can pool their resources to spend on priorities that are important to them.” And these so-called priorities, such as fighting “climate change” or curbing overpopulation, merely serve as vehicles for their true agenda: control.

RELATED:How AI Can Be Used to Manipulate People
Absent regulation, AI offers a powerful tool for cults and dictators.
Published April 6, 2023
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has emerged as a powerful tool that can be harnessed for various purposes, including creating authoritarian cults and enslaving people. Cult leaders and dictators can use AI to monitor, manipulate, and control people, leading to their eventual subjugation.
By gathering data on individuals’ online activities, including their search history, social mediaposts, and browsing patterns, AI algorithms can create a profile of a person’s preferences and interests. Cult leaders and dictators can use the information to create individually tailored content that reinforces their ideology and manipulates people into following their beliefs.
As deputy chief technology officer and senior information scientist at the RAND Corporation, Dr. Rand Waltzman managed artificial intelligence research. His 50 years of expertise on AI has led him to found the Information Professional Association and share knowledge on social media describing specific techniques now in use online to deceive, manipulate and indoctrinate people. He contends that immersive digital environments (the metaverse) will only compound its power to influence people—to vote a certain way or to believe a certain way—exponentially amplifying the ability to exert undue influence on humanity.

RELATED: Giving AI direct control over anything is a bad idea – here’s how it could do us real harm
Published July 31, 2023
The release of the advanced chatbot ChatGPTin 2022 got everyone talking about artificial intelligence (AI). Its sophisticated capabilities amplified concerns about AI becoming so advanced that soon we would not be able to control it. This even led some experts and industry leaders to warn that the technology could lead to human extinction.
Other commentators, though, were not convinced. Noam Chomsky, a professor of linguistics, dismissed ChatGPT as “hi-tech plagiarism”.
For years, I was relaxed about the prospect of AI’s impact on human existence and our environment. That’s because I always thought of it as a guide or adviser to humans. But the prospect of AIs taking decisions – exerting executive control – is another matter. And it’s one that is now being seriously entertained.
One of the key reasons we shouldn’t let AI have executive power is that it entirely lacks emotion, which is crucial for decision-making. Without emotion, empathy and a moral compass, you have created the perfect psychopath. The resulting system may be highly intelligent, but it will lack the human emotional core that enables it to measure the potentially devastating emotional consequences of an otherwise rational decision.
