Note: Dave Rubin is a homosexual man, not an anti-homosexual man. I have corrected this statement about him in this article.
Joseph Herrin (08/07/2021)
He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
There was a time some while back that PayPal was banning people for taking a stand against homosexuality. I prayed at that time, asking the Father whether I should immediately switch because I had a book that spoke against homosexuality. That was about 6 years ago, and I heard nothing from the Father, so I kept using them and I have posted the book again (Push Back
) with no response from PayPal.
Now PayPal is creating a “No-Buy List” and is planning on banning all dissidents. They have not said when it will be created and active, but it now seems time to switch away from PayPal. To “switch away” from PayPal is easier said than done. As the following article says,
Get Ready for the ‘No-Buy’ List
By any standard, David Sacks is a super successful entrepreneur and venture capitalist. He’s invested in companies including Airbnb, Bird, Eventbrite, Facebook, Houzz, Lyft, Palantir, Postmates, Reddit, Slack, SpaceX, Twitter, and Uber. Now he’s a general partner at Craft Ventures.
But that’s not the reason to listen to him. It’s because he’s deeply insightful and consistently ahead of the curve on issues including free speech and Big Tech, how to amend Section 230, San Francisco’s meltdown, and more. You might remember his name from this column I wrote a few months back.
I don’t typically recommend Twitter to anyone I like. But if you’re already there, I strongly suggest following David.
When I helped create PayPal in 1999, it was in furtherance of a revolutionary idea. No longer would ordinary people be dependent on large financial institutions to start a business…
“As for the notion of building your own PayPal or Facebook: because of their gigantic network effects and economies of scale, there is no viable alternative when the whole industry works together to deny you access.
Kicking people off social media deprives them of the right to speak in our increasingly online world. Locking them out of the financial economy is worse: It deprives them of the right to make a living. We have seen how cancel culture can obliterate one’s ability to earn an income, but now the cancelled may find themselves without a way to pay for goods and services. Previously, cancelled employees who would never again have the opportunity to work for a Fortune 500 company at least had the option to go into business for themselves. But if they cannot purchase equipment, pay employees, or receive payment from clients and customers, that door closes on them, too.”
The first part of the article giving a nod to David Sacks is written by Bari Weiss. The latter part is written by David Sacks. What is the “No-Buy List” that PayPal is creating? David Sacks was a founding member of PayPal. He was its COO (Chief Operating Officer). He sold out of it a number of years ago and is now a superbly successful Entrepeneur and Venture Capitalist. Although David Sacks is against what PayPal says they are ready to do, the reasons he gives are fundamentally flawed. David Sacks speaks as one who doesn’t recognize the centralized function of the Multinational Corporation, or TNC (Transnational Corporation). Could he have so much success in this world and really be so flawed? In 2012 he contributed $55,000 to the Mitt Romney campaign and in 2016 he gave more than $38,000 to Hillary Clintons campaign. I don’t think so, but who knows.
In 2015 I wrote the article titled Network of Deception
. It was based upon a 2011 scientific study published by three systems theorists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Switzerland. The study started with a globe shaped array of red and yellow lights.
The points of light represent 1,318 transnational corporations (TNCs) which form the core of the world economy. Strongly Connected Components (corporations) are depicted as red lights, while very connected companies are yellow. The size of the dot represents revenue. All of the TNCs and Corporations are interconnected. That is to say, “The world is a highly connected place.”
Think of the nature of a corporation. It is owned by a group of men. It has no end date. When the man dies it is taken over by other men. A group of men from one corporation can be members of another corporation. Thus, all Transnational Corporations work largely as one, whether obvious or not.
This giant network of TNCs is one immense network of corporations. They include financial, media, and every other type of corporation. If you think this is small change, consider that the entire media in America is owned by just six corporations whose total annual income is 430 Billion dollars, which brings them in between Poland (467 Billion) and Nigeria (415 Billion) dollars total.
Revealed – the capitalist network that runs the world
New Scientist, October 19, 2011
As protests against financial power sweep the world this week, science may have confirmed the protesters’ worst fears. An analysis of the relationships between 43,000 transnational corporations has identified a relatively small group of companies, mainly banks, with disproportionate power over the global economy…
The idea that a few bankers control a large chunk of the global economy might not seem like news to New York’s Occupy Wall Street movement and protesters elsewhere. But the study, by a trio of complex systems theorists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, is the first to go beyond ideology to empirically identify such a network of power. It combines the mathematics long used to model natural systems with comprehensive corporate data to map ownership among the world’s transnational corporations (TNCs)…
When the team further untangled the web of ownership, it found much of it tracked back to a “super-entity” of 147 even more tightly knit companies – all of their ownership was held by other members of the super-entity – that controlled 40 per cent of the total wealth in the network. “In effect, less than 1 per cent of the companies were able to control 40 per cent of the entire network,” says Glattfelder. Most were financial institutions. The top 20 included Barclays Bank, JPMorgan Chase & Co, and The Goldman Sachs Group.
This scientific study was published 10 years ago. It has been shrinking dramatically, which is to say that the number of TNCs and Corporations that run the world has been diminishing. Today there are less than 147 TNCs, and they control more than 40% of the entire network, though no part of the network is separate. A total of 737 control 80% of it all. This too is data from 10 years ago, so it is a lessor number of TNCs today controlling a greater amount than 80%.
Let us revisit what David Sacks is saying?
“When I helped create PayPal in 1999, it was in furtherance of a revolutionary idea. No longer would ordinary people be dependent on large financial institutions to start a business.
Our democratized payment system caught fire and grew exponentially with millions of users who appreciated its ease and simplicity. Traditional banks were too slow and bureaucratic to adapt. Instead, the revolution we spawned two decades ago inspired new startups like Ally, Chime, Square, and Stripe, which have further expanded participation in the financial system.
But now PayPal is turning its back on its original mission. It is now leading the charge to restrict participation by those it deems unworthy.
First, in January, PayPal blocked a Christian crowdfunding site that raised money to bring demonstrators to Washington on January 6. Then, in February, PayPal announced that it was working with the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to ban users from the platform. This week the company announced it is partnering with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to investigate and shut down accounts that the ADL considers too extreme.”
David Sacks may have rightly had a revolutionary idea in 1999, but he was deceived to think that he was getting away from large financial institutions. It all ends up in the same place. It is the capitalist network that runs the world. He states:
“Now PayPal has gone much further, creating the economic equivalent of the No-Fly List with the ADL’s (Anti-Defamation League’s) assistance. If history is any guide, other fintech (financial technology) companies will soon follow suit. As we saw in the case of speech restrictions, the political monoculture that prevails among employees of these companies will create pressure for all of them to act as a bloc…
Kicking people off social media deprives them of the right to speak in our increasingly online world. Locking them out of the financial economy is worse: It deprives them of the right to make a living. We have seen how cancel culture can obliterate one’s ability to earn an income, but now the cancelled may find themselves without a way to pay for goods and services. Previously, cancelled employees who would never again have the opportunity to work for a Fortune 500 company at least had the option to go into business for themselves. But if they cannot purchase equipment, pay employees, or receive payment from clients and customers, that door closes on them, too.
What the woke Left doesn’t seem to realize is that the sort of economic desperation they seek to inflict on their enemies is exactly what produced Trump in the first place…
If you really believe our democracy barely survived a stress test these last several years, and don’t wish to subject it to another, the last thing you should do is create hordes of desperate people, denied a voice and livelihood, and primed to be rallied to a future autocrat’s cause.”
David Sacks speaks of the “woke Left.” He is merely saying what he wants the rest of the Left, and the Right to think. Regardless of this, he hasn’t shared what he truly believes about them, which is the woke Left is never over 5% of the population. But what if this woke Left is also the small number, less than 0.5% of the population, which is morphing into the Beast system? The Beast system controls the money. The Beast system will start by withdrawing the forms of currency it has established, such as PayPal. Soon, however, it will show up in the government policies which will do the same thing.
If you are not believing that PayPal is soon to remove you, take a look at the following video. Dave Rubin is a talk show host interviewing Ben Shapiro who is a Jewish man who just moved from California to Florida to escape the tentacles of those who were unwilling to listen to him talk. Ben Shapiro is a anti-homosexual, pro-life man who has spent much of his time talking about these things. I have had to pick-up the conversation about twenty minutes in where they mention PayPal.
The Rubin Report
Let us pray. Let us weep. Let us rejoice.
“And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.” Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie. “I, Yahshua, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.” And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.
