Most threats to humans come from science and technology, warns Hawking:
About Stephen Hawking
Years ago there was a cruel disinfo campaign here in the lower classes in this area of the USA where people claimed Hawking was some kind of weird discovery of hidden geniuse-that he already had a disfigured body and was in a wheelchair in some facility where it was 'discovered' he had super high intelligence.
I also recall a man I spoke with in passing telling me Hawking had been mistreated and had been living on the floor of an institution for throw away handicapped people before his 'gift' was 'discovered'.
All these years Ive ignored him and rejected him because he was the darling of the acedemic community due to his being 'discovered' and then supported. That he was a special case and no one out here on my level was ever given a chance and being mistreated was the way we we were handled normally anyway.
If I had known he was simply a Brit who was educated and came about in the usual way that someone in his position does I may have actually adopted him as a mentor or example to follow.
Its always been assumed hes American also.
People have to understand this was before the internet was a prominent part of average people's lives and wasnt easily accesible.
Also I now realize that anyone intelligent by nature will be supressed by power structures if they dont get educated at major institutions.
So despite all progress it still stands that those in power will utilize any means necessary to preserve their position and the status quo.
That isnt what upsets me. Its the current atmosphere of lying about sit-running things the same way but hiding behind a deception of a wonderful new world where bullshit concepts of 'change' and 'equality' are used to brainwash people.
So nothing has changed then.
