Biotech is engineered life. By definition, it is the exploitation of biological processes for industrial and other purposes, especially the genetic manipulation of microorganisms. The biotech industry is a precursor to transhumanism seeking to shape future generations where being human is anathema. The biosecurity state seeks to remove the rights of all natural life.
Alison McDowell is an independent researcher in Philadelphia, PA who began her journey in as a public school parent opposing the high-stakes testing industry and the privatization movement until she realized the endgame was shifting towards constant data collection on students through educational technology. Her research can be found at Wrench In The Gears and her YouTube channel with informational videos.
She and I met when we were both guests on a podcast with fellow education researcher Alice Linahan where we discussed artificial intelligence (AI), predicative analytics, and gamification of education. Over time, we have collaborated to expose educational technologies and human capital investments markets preying on schoolchildren.
Alison discovered the unimaginable power of the global enterprise imposing a future called the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) where most work will be automated. If we don’t stand up to those working in conjunction with them, education and teaching is moving away from the deeply human interactions and natural development. “They” know there’s not a future for most people as a result of automation which will lead to displaced workers and miseducation of our children.
Impact investing and social impact bonds are big business in Texas with their origins in Dallas where the TEA Commissioner Mike Morath once held a seat on the Dallas ISD school board. While education reform circles kept charter, public, private, virtual and home school parents busy fighting each other over the shrinking pie, investors in AI and predictive analytics were coming after all our children.
Morath hired a Social Impact Bond Director at TEA and through no-bid, sole source insider deal paying The Commit Partnership hundreds of thousands of dollars for predictive analytics and machine learning.
The Commit Partnership is a “collective impact” nonprofit in Dallas run by Todd Williams, a former Goldman Sachs real estate executive at the center of the financial crisis of 2008. Commit has “data sharing agreement” with all school districts in the metroplex and beyond.
Commit is moving to the new biotech hub at Pegasus Park. Pegasus Park is home to a 23-acre biotech hub funded by an oil family foundation and will be home to at least five social impact organizations, as well as UT Southwestern, Uplift Charters and Commit. The 1976 dystopian film Logan’s Run was filmed at the location.
