Two Nobodies Talk*

‘The Beginning Is Nigh . . .’ / with Hancock and Corbett

Readers are encouraged to set aside an hour or so for this conversation between two Internet mavens who seem to know what they’re talking about. Listeners may gain an inkling or two about how increasing numbers of people will go about informing themselves in the future on the Internet. (Most listeners are guaranteed not to understand all of what these two say. But they may find the talk intriguing.)

James Corbett, a Canadian who lives in Japan, turns out The Corbett Report, an online program of “open source intelligence news.” He and it are further described HERE. Ernest “Ernie” Hancock, an Arizona-based libertarian activist, publishes Freedom’s Phoenix materials and hosts the Declare Your Independence Internet show, HERE.  

Recorded last Friday, this is Corbett’s most recent appearance on DYI. Topics include: saying good-bye to an increasingly censored YouTube (owned by Google); saying hello to fediverse.party, a federation of Internet servers; and an alleged “coronavirus lockdown” in Greece that requires (or required) residents to text authorities before leaving home. Also, “i9/11,” a possible false-flag technological attack of some kind, and a subsequent “iPATRIOT ACT.”

Neither Hancock nor this James Corbett (there have been others) is acknowledged by Wikipedia, and Corbett’s name has yet to surface in the New York Times. Hancock appeared in a 2002 Times story in his capacity as a husband and a litigious Arizona resident.

Again, these two appear to know the subjects they’re talking about. Many listeners won’t. (Listeners between the ages of 12 and 35 may know more than their elders.)

I’m Nobody! Who are you? / Are you – Nobody – too? / Then there’s a pair of us! / Don’t tell! they’d advertise – you know!

How dreary – to be – Somebody! / How public – like a Frog – / To tell one’s name – the livelong June – / To an admiring Bog!
