Can Targeted AI Attack Us Now?


A serious and sinister problem has been growing for 70 years. 

The backlash can destroy the finances, even the lives, of those who are not aware.

During the past seven decades, big business has gained increasing shares of the global wealth.  Yet they want more so a few multinational giants have used part of this money to hijack our political world.

The world has ignored the warnings.   Now due to the growing use of algorithms and artificial intelligence, the problem is worse.  Big business and big government can target messages to individuals.  America saw the impact of targeted social media during the last Presidential election.  The British have revealed that similar targeting problems had an impact on the Brexit referendum.

How far can targeting go?

Targeting information at specific individuals is the problem for now.

The link to a seven minute video, that will fill you with dread… shows that targeting can get worse… much worse.  The video shows how far targeting technology has come and can go… allowing machines to even  kill humans who are targeted.

Professor Stewart Russell, a computer scientist with impressive contributions to artificial intelligence, helped create this youtube stream.  He is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley.

The textbook on artificial intelligence that Russell co-authored is used by over 1300 universities in 116 countries.[

He is on the Scientific Advisory Board for the Future of Life Institute and the Advisory Board of the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk.

He was co-winner of the IJCAI Computers and Thought Award in 1995.

He was inducted as a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery in 2003.

He was awarded the ACM Karl V. Karlstrom Outstanding Educator Award in 2005

He was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2011

He was appointed to the Blaise Pascal Chair in Paris, awarded to “internationally acclaimed foreign scientists in all disciplines,” in 2012.

In 2016, he co-founded the Center for Human-Compatible Artificial Intelligence at UC Berkeley.

He also helped create this video that shows existing AI technology and how it can replace nuclear weapons with swarms of autonomous tiny drones.

The video shows how a $25 million order of these drones can now buy a swarm of such tiny “slaughterbots” that they could kill half a city.

Even worse the film shows how each bot can be targeted to a specific person!

See this video Slaughterbots at youtube.com

The video will disturb you.  These seven minutes will change your life.  Watching it made me slightly sick… and very angry… plus resolved. 

The risk it shows is not a theoretical problem for the future.  This is not something that our children and grandchildren will have to deal with.  This is a problem each of us needs to deal with in our lives now.

The timing of this video is important because the global economy is speeding toward a crucial economic junction created by US government debt.

Only very low interest rates have stopped the problem from becoming a crisis.   These same low rates have also helped US stocks reach all time high prices.  This has keep investors in the US market.

As soon as investors become nervous enough, the US government will have to raise interest rates.  If  the low interest rate that US Treasury bills and bonds earn now doubles, the government has to pay double on it’s debt.  Doubling interest costs is the same as doubling the US debt!

The government will resist raising rates because it will ruin their budget, cause a collapse of the stock markets and destroy the US dollar.  

The government and its supporters have this targeting technology and we must all protect ourselves against its increasing use.

Learn how to have more freedom and time, less stress, better health care, extra income, greater safety and profit despite America’s deficits, debt, currency risk and the dangers of targeting.

Fortunately there are secrets that allow us to live better lives, free of debt and worry despite these risks.

My wife, Merri and I, have traveled, lived, worked and invested around the world for nearly 50 years to gain this information.

Let me share the basics of this data and how we can be of help through 2018.

The first secret is that things really are mostly good in the western world.  Despite many problems, we are surrounded by more abundance and greater opportunity than almost anyone has enjoyed, anywhere, ever.

We just need to know how to tap into it…  this abundance and avoid those who want to take it away.

To enjoy a fair share of this wealth we need to learn how to live in the new economy.

We need to learn how to change with technology and become new, and different, again and again.

Merri and I have made seven huge transitions in the 50 years.  Each has allowed us to stay ahead of losses that the majority of Americans suffer.  We want to spend the year ahead sharing ideas that help you live a richer, independent life through 2018 and beyond.

What can we do?

Gain a better, freer life.  Combine better health, higher income and greater savings for a happier, more resilient lifestyle. 

I invite you to get off this treadmill and join a new movement.  Join us to become a Pruppie like my wife Merri and me.

I am sure you are asking, “what’s a Pruppie?”

Pruppies are those who use changes in technology to integrate the best features of Preppers and Uppies.  We all know about Preppers.  They believe that the world, as we know it, is about to end.  And we also know about Uppies, upward professionals as in Yuppies, young upward professionals.  Uppies expect their world to get better.

The reality is that the world might get better or it might get worse. 

Chances are it will get better in some places.

Other spots will get worse.

Pruppies are those who will gain either way! 

I invite you to join Merri and me as Pruppies, because we expect the world to get better.   We live and earn based on that expectation but we also prepare for bad times as well as good.

Just in case… the world goes sideways… we Pruppies will still survive and prosper anyway.

We do not give up anything by being prepared either.  We can enjoy the good parts of the new economy, as we protect ourselves from what can be bad.

We pursue our passions in an incredible new economy that’s opening up for those who learn how to start multi dimensional micro businesses, tiny businesses that offer multiple streams of income in good times but can work well in disaster scenarios too.

Here’s an example… a small ginseng business.

Ginseng is a great health root.  Demand for ginseng is growing especially in China.  At times good dried ginseng sells for $1,000 a pound!  This is an easy crop to grow.   The less care you give it, the more valuable it becomes.  Yet if everything goes south and you cannot sell it, the health qualities are good to have and make it an excellent barter item.  Once you know what to do with ginseng, it’s easy to grow in your back yard.

Pruppies look for ways to make life better in non establishment ways.  New technology creates many new ways to earn multiple small streams of income that have been forgotten or were previously unknown.

One of the best kept secrets is that ginseng and 125 other medicinal crops that are currently unsustainable, can be grown on land that is wonderful for low stress living and is extraordinarily cheap to own.

goldenseal ginseng

Ginseng and Goldenseal growing in our back yard.  (I know about growing ginseng and want to show you how).   But enough about ginseng.  The earning potential of this medicinal root is just one small example of how to create large earnings in many small ways.

Any Passion Can Make You Rich

Let me hasten to add, I am writer, publisher and investor, not a farmer.

Yet I love agriculture and low stress rural living, so I earn multiple small streams of income in agriculture, plus enjoy the benefits of growing and raising some of my own medicine and my own food.

The small agriculture ventures that Merri and I do are fun and each activity earns a little, plus helps us have better health.  Gardening is good exercise.  Eating the fresh food we grow is better than any food we’ll find in big business super markets.

If times turn tight our small agriculture enterprises could become big… in lifestyle terms.

There are almost infinite ways to have never ending prosperity so it makes sense to earn doing what you love.

Is travel your passion?  Do you want to travel…spend time…live…laugh or love in more than just one place?  Do you want the places to be ones you choose?  Or perhaps you would rather settle down in a low stress, safe, nurturing town, abroad or in Smalltown USA?

You can live either lifestyle…or both

For almost 50 years (from May 1968) Merri and I we have been paid to travel and live exactly where we have wanted to be… because we have had small businesses that prospered from seminars, workshops, courses and tours.

Our seminar/conference/events/business has allowed us to visit and to live almost anywhere we chose.

There are many other examples.   Though writing is my ultimate passion, several of my favorite hobbies include history, fishing, art, music  and gardening.

I pursue my passions in ways that create income.

Along with ginseng, here are sun flowers I grow.

international_business070621a_1.jpg

These sunflowers can be made into bouquets and floral designs that stimulate my artistic bent and sell well at the local farmers market.

Anyone can make good money in small time agriculture and its a growing trend.  Take Mike McGroarty’s gardening newsletter.  McGroarty has done just as the reader above desires, learned how to earn extra income from gardening.

His website begins:  “You Can Grow Small Plants in Your Backyard and Earn Thousands of Dollars! I sold $3,421 worth of small plants from my backyard in one day! We sold $26,000 worth of Plants from Home in 4 weeks!

You Can Earn up to $45.00 per Hour at Home, Growing Small Plants in Your Backyard! I’ll show you how I do it.  It’s a blast!

McGroarty has learned how to create a small ways so the trickles amount to a sizable flow.

Pruppies earn in numerous ways. 

We have our self publishing business.

gary-scott-writing-images

Writing is a great way to earn.  Writers can work where they want, (here I am on our Blue Ridge farm front porch).

We have other mirco businesses businesses as well.

gary-scott-orange-grove

For example, we have an orange grove.  Not a good earner right now with citrus greening but with huge fringe (AKA known as tax breaks) benefits.

We have a real estate rental business with annual leases and also use airbnb.

We raise trout which we sell locally in North Carolina.

These are all fun ways to earn extra… for me.    Let me share tricks of the trade so you can find fun ways to earn extra too.

This is why I would like to send you the $39.99  report “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere” FREE in this special offer.

“Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere”  contains seven steps we can take to gain benefits and protection from this cartel.

The report  “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere”  reveals specific places that reduce your living expenses, easily increase your income, make you smarter, healthier and provide tax benefits as well. 

Learn about these specific places.

More important learn what makes places special and seven freedom producing steps that you can use to find similar spots of opportunity.

Here are some of the experiences this report shares:

The report includes a tax and career plan broken into four age groups, before you finish school, from age 25 to 50 – age 50-to 65 and what to do when you reach the age where tradition wants you to re-tire.  (Another clue-you do not need to retire and probably should not).

The report is very specific because it is about what Merri and I, our children and even my sister and thousands of our readers have done and are doing.

Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere focuses on a system that takes advantage of living in Smalltown USA, but earning globally.

  • Learn about the magic of the north facing slope.   This is where Merri and I live almost half of our time.  North facing mountain land is some of the least expensive in the world but has hidden values that the report reveals.  There is a lot of this land and a lot of hidden value that you can tap.   When we bought our Blue Ridge farm (252 acres) I mentioned this to my Swiss banking friend.  “That’s bigger than the entire village where I live!” was his response.  Smalltown USA offers a last chance at having a lot of space.  By living in two Smalltown places there are enormous tax advantages as well.  One step in the system saves Merri and me over $28,345 in taxes a year.

The report shows how to buy cheap north facing slopes and create an income producing tiny home for $29,000 or less.

If you lack the $29,000 to invest, a start up using tents is even less.  These are tipis we put up at our farm before we built our first tiny home.  Learn how they can create tens of thousands of dollars in income for you.

Fwd: gary-scott-tipis

  • See ways that small businesses like Tipi rentals can create BIG tax savings as well as extra income.  For more than 30 years Merri and I have enjoyed a strong six figure income, some years more, in the millions.  Yet there have been very few years when we had to pay federal income tax.  The report lays out a three structure program and how it is used when you are in school (up to age 30), then from 25 to 50, 50 to 70  and beyond 70.   Learn why Chapter C corporations and pensions can be better than the normally recommended Chapter S.  See how new mileage log rules gives you a possible opportunity to increase your tax deductions using IRS Form 4562.  Using a two-vehicle strategy you can gain $12,976 in new deductions even if you do not have to drive one mile further or spend one additional penny on your car.
  • See how a greenhouse can help you eat better and be healthier, plus provide income and a tax deduction and be funded by a government grant.

Our Florida greenhouse.

  • There are similar benefits from having a second home office defined in IRS publication 463 and IRS publication 587, even if your desk is a dining room table.  The report also shows how your dining room table can become an actual income producer as its creates a huge tax deduction at the same time, not to mention a great place to eat, work and lay out plans for a brighter, safer more lucrative and enjoyable future.
  • How changes in cell phone and internet technology eliminated the need to be in one place.   An old law that creates new opportunity for small business in small towns is available to everyone.
  • Use the specific search and purchase guide.  Construction plans are included that show how to generate first tier income that leads to five, second tier avenues of earnings.
  • How to pay off old debt and avoid new debt by avoiding spurts and embracing value. 
  • Learn seven skills that will always have value.  See how to turn First Aid, medicinal plants, hospitality, food, trees, alternate energy and writing to sell into everlasting, low stress wealth.

Merri and I will celebrate our 50th year of global living, working, investing and researching to find and share ideas on how to have simpler, low stress, healthier, more affluent lifestyles.  Our courses, reports and email messages look at ways to gain:

#1:  Global micro business income.

#2:  Low cost, natural health.

#3:  Safer, more profitable, investments that take little time or cost to buy and hold… so you can focus on earning more instead

Many readers use our services for just one of these three benefits.  They focus only on health or on earning more or on better, easier investing.

27 years ago Merri and I created the International Club as a way for readers to join us and be immersed in all three of these benefits.   The International Club is a year long learning program aimed at helping members earn worry free income, have better affordable good health and gain extra safety and profits with value investments.

Join The International Club for all of 2018 NOW.

The three disciplines, earning, health and investing, work best when coordinated together.  Regretfully the attacks on our freedom are realities of life.  There is little we can do to change this big picture.  However we can change how we care for our health, how we earn and how we save so that we are among the few who live better despite the dollar’s fall.

Club members start by receiving seven workshops and courses on how earn everywhere with at home micro businesses.  We call this our “Live Well and Free Anywhere Program”.   The program contains a series of courses and reports that show ways to earn and be free. These courses and reports are:

  • “International Business Made EZ”
  • “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell”
  • Video Workshop by our webmaster David Cross,
  • The entire weekend “Writer’s Camp” in MP3
  • The report “How to Raise Money Abroad”
  • Report and MP3 Workshop “How to Gain Added Success With Relaxed Concentration”
  • The course “Event-Full – How to Earn Conducting Seminars and Tours”

“Event-full”  shows how you can gain income and innumerable fringe benefits by staying at home or treveling.   For example, almost all of our global travel has been tax deductible for all these years.

The pay has certainly not been bad either.  You’ll see in “Event-Full, how one time we earned  $142,260 in three days.  In another instance, we earned over $135,000 in two days.  Once our earnings exceeded $200,000 in just three days.  You’ll learn how to gradually build income potential like this.

Yet the income has been a small part of this adventure.  The expanded horizons… the people we have met… the adventures we have shared… the tens of thousands of delegates we have enjoyed and hopefully helped… the poor we have served… the freedom we have felt… to be able to go where we desire and come home, when we desire, with more than when we left.

These facts have dramatically enriched our lives….and we hope will help yours as well.

We would like to help improve your lifestyle as well… if… earning with a seminar, tour events business appeals to you.

We have conducted seminars or events or spoken at them in… (alphabetical order)  Australia, Bahamas, Belgium, Belize, Canada, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, England, Ecuador, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary (before the Iron Curtain came down), Indonesia, Isle of Man, Jamaica, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands,  Panama, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Scotland, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand and at one time or another most states in the United States.

This program is offered at $299, but is available to you as a club member free.  You save $299 more.

Club members learn ways to be free of the “Secret Hospital Charge Master”.   Just as governments hide truth behind “National Security”, big health care businesses hide medical truths behind “Charge masters”.  Most hospital charge masters are secret because big business does not want us to know how much hospital costs have risen.  Motivations beyond our good health, like corporate greed, want to keep us in the dark about health care cost.

Despite rising health care costs, a report from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention shows that hospitals are the last place we want to be for good health.  One report shows that hospital-acquired infections alone kills 57% more Americans every year than all car accidents and falls put together.

Often, what patients catch in the hospital can be worse than what sent them there.  Governments and health care agencies agree  – antibiotic resistance is a “nightmare.”  An antibiotic-resistant bacteria may be spreading in more hospitals than patients know.  About one in every 25 hospitalized patients gets an infection and a 2013 report from the Journal of Patient Safety showed that medical errors are the third-leading cause of death in the country.

Along with the risk of hospital acquired illness and medical errors, the second huge threat to our well being… is health care costs, especially at hospitals.  This is why charge masters are so often secret.  There are few risks to our wealth that are greater than a hospital stay.

I have created three natural health reports are about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

Each report is available for $19.95.  However you’ll receive this free as club member and save $59.85.

Next, club members participate in an intensive program called the Purposeful investing Course (Pi).  The purpose of Pi is finding value investments that increase safety and profit.  Learn Slow, Worry Free, Good Value Investing.

Stress, worry and fear are three of an investor’s worst enemies.  These destroyers of wealth can create a Behavior Gap, that causes investors to underperform in any market good or bad.  The behavior gap is created by natural human responses to fear.  Pi helps create profitable strategies that avoid losses from this gap.

Lessons from Pi are based on the creation and management of numerous Model Portfolios, called Pifolio.

We combine the research of several brilliant mathematicians and money managers with my years of investing experience.

There are no secrets about this portfolio except that these mathematicians  ignore the stories from economic news (often created by someone with vested interests) and is based mainly on good math that reveals the truth through financial news.

The Pifolio is a theoretical portfolio of MSCI Country Benchmark Index ETFs that cover all the good value markets using my 50 years of global experience and my study of the analysis of four mathematical investing geniuses (and friends).

This is a complete and continual study of what to do about the movement of international major and emerging stock markets.  I want to share this study throughout the next year with you.

This analysis forms the basis of a Good Value Stock Market Strategy.  The analysis is rational, mathematical and does not worry about short term ups and downs.  This strategy is easy for anyone to follow and use.  Pi reveals the best value markets and provides contacts to managers and analysts and Country Index ETFs so almost anyone can create and follow their own strategy.

The costs are low and this type of ETF is one of the hardest for institutions to cheat.  Expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund.  Little knowledge, time, management or guesswork are required.  The investment is simply a diversified portfolio of good value indices.  Investments in an index are like investments in all the shares of a good value market.

Pi opens insights to numerous long term cycles that most investors miss because they have not been investing long enough to see them.

The Pi subscription is normally $299 per annum but as a club member you receive Pi at no charge and save an additional $299.

Profit from the US dollar’s fall.

In the 1980s, a remarkable set of two economic circumstances helped anyone who spotted them become remarkably rich.  Some of my readers made enough to retire.  Others picked up 50% currency gains.  Then the cycle ended.  Warren Buffett explained the importance of this ending in a 1999 Fortune magazine interview.  He said:  Let me summarize what I’ve been saying about the stock market: I think it’s very hard to come up with a persuasive case that equities will over the next 17 years perform anything like—anything like—they’ve performed in the past 17!

Club members receive a report about opportunity in the  current strength of the US dollar is a second remarkable similarity to 30 years ago.   The dollar rose along with Wall Street.  Profits came quickly over three years.  Then the dollar dropped like a stone, by 51%  in just two years.  A repeat of this pattern is growing and could create up to 50% extra profit if we start using strong dollars to accumulate good value stock market ETFs in other currencies.

This is the most exciting opportunity I have seen since we started sending our reports on international investing ideas more than three decades ago.  The trends are so clear that I created a short, but powerful report “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More.”   This report shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small investments.  I kept the report short and simple, but included links to 153 pages of  Good Value Stock Market research and Asset Allocation Analysis.

The report shows 20 good value investments and a really powerful tactic that shows the most effective and least expensive way to accumulate these bargains in large or even very small amounts (less than $5,000).  There is extra profit potential of at least 50% so the report is worth a lot.

This report sells for $29.95 but when you become a club member you receive the report, “Three Currency Patterns For 50% Profits or More” FREE.

Plus get the $39.99 report, “The Silver Dip 2017” free.  Plus any update if required in 2018.

With investors watching global stock markets bounce up and down, many missed two really important profit generating events.  The price of silver dipped below $14 an ounce as did shares of the iShares Silver ETF (SLV).   The second event is that the silver gold ratio hit 80 and has remained near this level, compared to a range of the 230s only two years ago.

These two events are a strong sign to invest in precious metals.

I prepared a special report “Silver Dip 2015” and updated this in 2017.   The report explains the exact conditions you need to make leveraged silver & gold speculations that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.  The purpose of the report is to share long term lessons about speculating in precious metals gained through 30 years of speculating and investing in gold and silver.

The low price of silver offers special value now so I want to send you this report because the “Silver Dip 2017” offers enormous profit potential in 2017.

The report “Silver Dip 2017” sells for $39.95 but club members receive it free as well.

The $39.95 new “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere Report” is also free.

There is an incredible new economy that’s opening for those who know what to do.  There are great new opportunities and many of them offer enormous income potential but also work well in disaster scenarios.

There are are specific places where you can reduce your living expenses and easily increase your income.  Scientific research has shown that being in such places actually make you smarter and healthier.  Top this off with the fact that they provide tax benefits as well and you have to ask, “Where are these places?”.

Learn about these specific places.  More important learn what makes them special.  Discover seven freedom producing steps that you can use to find other similar places of opportunity.

The report includes a tax and career plan broken into four age groups, before you finish school, from age 25 to 50 – age 50-to 65 and what to do when you reach the age where tradition wants you to re-tire.  (Another clue-you do not need to retire and probably should not!)

The report is very specific because it describes what Merri and I, our children and even my sister and thousands of our readers have done and are doing, right now.
