in advance of the direct listing of #PalantirTechnologies, on the New York Stock Exchange tmw.

Palantir touts its ethical commitments, saying it will never work with regimes that abuse human rights abroad as it works directly with ICE statesidehttps://www.amnestyusa.org/press-releases/palantirs-contracts-with-ice-raise-human-rights-concerns-around-direct-listing
In May, they warned: “The shadowy data-mining firm #Palantir, whose technology has powered some of the most nefarious immigration abuses, is now collecting troves of health data about all of us.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/05/21/why-are-we-trusting-company-with-ties-ice-intelligence-agencies-collect-our-health-information/
Without adequate protections, we run the risk of massive, ongoing government surveillance of all Americans in the name of public health.https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/05/21/why-are-we-trusting-company-with-ties-ice-intelligence-agencies-collect-our-health-information/

Both companies have links to #CambridgeAnalytica
At the SAME TIME, they also won a $7.5m contract to build the digital platform for US Health Dept (HHS)
On 22 July Downing St took control of data
On 14 July, the Trump admin ordered hospitals to send all #COVID data to HHS Protect, run by #Palantir
Notice a pattern?
We only KNOW about these contracts because of Freedom of Information lawsuits against the US & UK govts
They expose the fact that Palantir appear to be part of a single, coordinated US-UK strategy.
They're doing the same for dozens - perhaps scores - of govts around the world
#Palantir often offer it for free
The initial £1 UK contract soon morphed into one for £1 million
But its the data that is worth billions!
In the UK, the companies running the platform for the NHS (the country's MOST trusted brand) have links with #CambridgeAnalytica (the country's LEAST trusted brand), but no MPs speak out.
As James Watson, who discovered the structure of DNA, said: Our fates lie in our genes and not in the stars.
But who controls that fate?
He donated $1m to the "Defeat Crooked Hillary" campaign backed by Robert Mercer & overseen by Steve Bannon.
Mercer & Bannon were the main kingpins behind #CambridgeAnalytica.
Yarvin wrote of Thiel, he is “fully enlightened, just plays it very carefully.” #Palantir #PalantirTechnologies #PalantirPlan #Trump #COVID19 https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8724895/Peter-Thiel-cozied-alt-right-threw-support-Trump-2016.html
Peter Thiel enjoyed the dinner he had with former Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos, according to an email he sent the next say.https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8724895/Peter-Thiel-cozied-alt-right-threw-support-Trump-2016.html
#PeterThiel's big interest is in genetics
He has backed DNA-testing/editing & genetic engineering startups as well as numerous life sciences companies such as Halcyon Molecular, Pathway Genomics, Juvenesence, Imatato.
"Positive eugenics" is key to understanding the ‘plan’.
Even the Nazis distinguished btw "negative eugenics" (discouraging the "inferior" from breeding) & "positive eugenics" (encouraging the "fit" to breed).
The discovery of the DNA double helix in 1953, gave rise to modern molecular biology & genetic engineering
The 1990 Human Genome Project mapped all the genes of the human genome
Gene editing = altering human genomes.
But germline genome editing could pass changes to future generations & even could even help reshape humans & our society
The idea is v attactive to some
It has HUGE potential social & cost benefits, not just in medicine
But we've seen the movie!
We know genetics can get out of hand
Then last Saturday (!), @MattHancock launched #GenomeUK, a major new Genomic Healthcare Strategy for the UK
It didn't get much news coverage. https://twitter.com/MattHancock/status/1309788592919793665
Hancock today: "The way that we do healthcare is completely changing, & we've got to embrace that" https://twitter.com/MattHancock/status/1312793204178198528
