Hire mercenaries to attack Big Tech?

After Big Tech companies like Amazon banned Parler and Trump got banned from his favorite social media platform, the owners and CEOs of Big Tech fear violent retaliation from conservative militias. Let’s therefore take a sober look at whether such attacks on Big Tech leaders are realistic or not. Because you can’t ideologically deradicalize hardcore militia members, but they can be deterred if seeing in advance that Big Tech’s security measures are good enough to stop attacks. In the chapters below I’ll explore some of the capabilities and tactical options of each party in the escalating conflict between Big Tech and anti-corporate militant groups. This post here is about Christian militias but it applies to all militant anti-Establishment groups, left or right, if they are resourceful.

In the following I’m discussing the effectiveness of violent methods that I personally don’t support from an ethical viewpoint.

Sean McFate writes in The New Rules of War that “Megachurches command big bucks. “If you put together all the megachurches in the United States, that’s easily several billion dollars,” says Scott Thumma, a professor of sociology and religion at Hartford Seminary. He estimates that the average American megachurch “has about $6.5 million in income a year. The Lakewood Church in Houston has an annual budget of $90 million.” (…)

“What if a megachurch sponsored a crusade today? Evangelicals are not pacifists, and some are even militant in their defense of their faith. They could easily hire mercenaries to protect endangered Christian communities.” (…)

“This scenario is not purely hypothetical. A grassroots Christian mobilization occurred during ISIS’s takeover of northern Iraq. The city of Irbil, in the autonomous region of Kurdistan, became a hub for foreign fighters looking to kill ISIS. Some were mercenaries, while others were Christian crusaders. Many were American and British veterans of the Iraq War.”

“The Christian resistance grew after the United States pulled out of Iraq. Knowing what lay ahead, militia units like the Nineveh Plain Protection Units, the Tiger Guards, the Babylon Brigade, and the Syriac Military Council took shape. Additionally, churches from around the world sent missionaries to assist beleaguered communities on the front lines, supported by their congregations back home.”

“One such example of a Christian militia is Dwekh Nawsha, whose name means “one who sacrifices” in Assyrian. It has a foreign-fighters battalion, and one of its recruiters is a twenty-eight-year-old who goes by the pseudonym “Brett.” Detroit born and bred, he is a US Army veteran who fought in the Iraq War. Now he is a self-described “soldier of Christ” and a “crusader.””

In the next chapter I will discuss how Big Tech can defend itself against private armies.

Big Tech’s defense against mercenaries

Here are some ways that a Big Tech company like Amazon can protect itself if anti-surveillance activists and other anti-corporate militant groups decide to hire professional mercenaries to fight Big Tech.

Private Military Companies (PMCs) go to war for money. If an anti-corporate militia hires a group of SF veterans to attack Bezos, for example, a corporation like Amazon has enough money to pay this group to change sides and betray the militia.

FBI or the “military branch” of Amazon (probably run by ex-NSA chief Keith Alexander who is now working for Bezos) can set up a PMC as a honey trap for militant anti-surveillance groups.

Private spy agencies owned or controlled by the globalist ultra-liberal elite will of course help Bezos, by infiltrating PMCs that are partly but genuinely driven by ideology/religion. These undercover agents can then sabotage a mercenary operation. They can tell Bezos where and when his enemies plan to assassinate him.

A militant group, or a partly idealistic group of mercenary SF vets, can try to weed out infiltrators by sending newcomers on a mission where they are filmed when assassinating a less protected tech engineer working for Amazon. This anti-spy tactic will stop FBI infiltrators. But a corporation like Amazon can use shell companies or their CIA contacts to secretly hire infiltrators willing to kill a low-level tech engineer if that’s the only way to get inside a PMC that poses a real threat to the leader of Amazon. These infiltrators can be given a new identity, including plastic surgery, to avoid getting caught if videos and photos of them are released afterward.

In the next chapter about this grim subject I will discuss whether there are realistic ways to fight the top leaders of Big Tech despite the countermeasures presented above.

Mercenary resistance to Big Tech counterattacks

To avoid hiring a Private Military Company (PMC) that has been infiltrated by Big Tech it’s necessary to only pay mercenaries who have headquarters in states that are enemies of the globalist ultra-liberal elite.

Instead of hiring a PMC to directly fight the leadership of Amazon, for example – especially Bezos who might often be living on a Pacific island guarded by his own private army – it might be better to pay a PMC to use its contacts within (rogue factions of) non-corporate intelligence agencies that have the resources needed to conduct a successful attack.

There is a way for militant activists to safely communicate directly with non-corporate intelligence agencies, but I will probably get in a whole lot of trouble if mentioning it in a public arena.

Bezos and leaders of less important Big Tech companies, have two significant problems however:

1) Intelligence officers, soldiers, mercenaries and even the spy masters at CIA and MI6 will in the relatively near future see that many of their skills and exciting job assignments are not necessary anymore. Because AI, drones, IoT, and robots in cashless societies will lead to a very boring state where human intelligence services are redundant, irrelevant. But spies and mercenaries are not neurologically capable of enduring this boredom and inactivity. So how many of them will first say yes to getting hired by Bezos and then turn against him? What if a guard attacks him when he sleeps?

2) MIT physicist Max Tegmark and other AI researchers estimate that there is approximately somewhere between 20% and 50% chance that AI or other Big Tech innovations will kill all of humanity the next hundred years.

When intelligence officers and mercenaries in ultra-liberal states read the above, how many will stay loyal to Big Tech?
