Facebook Founder: “I’m a billionaire…I’m going to be like 160…and be part of class of immortal overlords”

President of Facebook Sean Parker unloads on Facebook “exploiting” human psychology

Facebook Founder Sean Parker says everything one needs to know in order to understand why Americans outside of the Silicon Valley bubble despise “wonder-kid” geeky billionaires…

“Because I’m a billionaire, I’m going to have access to better health care so … I’m going to be like 160 and I’m going to be part of this, like, class of immortal overlords. [Laughter]

Because, you know the [Warren Buffett] expression about compound interest. … [G]ive us billionaires an extra hundred years and you’ll know what … wealth disparity looks like.”

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson reacted to Sean Parker’s comments about the negative consequences of Facebook and social media addiction, as Parker warned about Facebook, “God only knows what it’s doing to kids’ brains.”

The former Facebook president said at an Axios event that the company’s founders knew they were “exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology” by building a “social validation feedback loop.”

According to Zerohedge, the 38-year-old founding president of Facebook, Sean Parker, confirmed every ‘big brother’ conspiracy there is about the social media giant, Parker explained how social networks purposely hook users and potentially hurt our brains…

“When Facebook was getting going, I had these people who would come up to me and they would say, ‘I’m not on social media.’ And I would say, ‘OK. You know, you will be.’ And then they would say, ‘No, no, no. I value my real-life interactions. I value the moment. I value presence. I value intimacy.’ And I would say, … ‘We’ll get you eventually.'”

“I don’t know if I really understood the consequences of what I was saying, because [of] the unintended consequences of a network when it grows to a billion or 2 billion people and … it literally changes your relationship with society, with each other … It probably interferes with productivity in weird ways. God only knows what it’s doing to our children’s brains.”

“The thought process that went into building these applications, Facebook being the first of them, … was all about: ‘How do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible?'”

“And that means that we need to sort of give you a little dopamine hit every once in a while, because someone liked or commented on a photo or a post or whatever. And that’s going to get you to contribute more content, and that’s going to get you … more likes and comments.”

“It’s a social-validation feedback loop … exactly the kind of thing that a hacker like myself would come up with, because you’re exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology.”

“The inventors, creators — it’s me, it’s Mark [Zuckerberg], it’s Kevin Systrom on Instagram, it’s all of these people — understood this consciously. And we did it anyway.”

No, it isn’t capitalism. It is a total lack of ethics and morals benefiting those out to hurt others.

I think he meant ‘immoral’ [he has already reached his goal] …Fakebook was seeded with CIA funding from the start,a ‘private’ company doesn’t have to go by government censorship/free speech protocols….big business ‘feudalism’ is the new world orders …next step.

Suing for a new “Magna Carte”,would necessitate that some people in the not to distant future A: can still read and comprehend complex ideas/text,
and B: that the information is still kept on the web,libraries will devolve into computer stations for gleaning dis-information from the Google store-house/cloud….”going down the memory hole” of his-story.

Believe we’ve been there a couple times already….hieroglyphs in Egypt and the Sanskrit scrolls in India…and the ‘benumbed’ brain dead are following ISIS/Al Queida’s(?) lead in destroying ALL physical evidence of those who ‘passed’ before(even ‘burial markers’ are not sacrosanct to these ignorant dotards)…perpetuating the cycle of ‘ignorance’…it is a wonder that the Pyramids/Sphinx et al survived…with fertilizer/gunpowder available to the ‘pin heads’ future generations may not even have such marvels to wonder about…

Have you ever heard about the Welsh language being suppressed,unable to write in their own native tongue,forbiden by English law.
Some older Welsh guys discovered that hieroglyphs are very similar to how their original lettering was formatted, and discovered that they could quite easily read it.
I know this sounds absurd but I stumbled upon it on the web and these older men sounded very convincing…interesting anyway to me anyway.
