Hello, welcome back for Thursday 14th October as China struggles back to work after a long 10 day (for some) China National Day holiday. While we were scouring the Internet recently we stumbled apon a story re China’s victory over the US in the supposed war of AI and her technical superiority. Now, for anyone who has spent more than 6 months in China since circa 2016 this is no real surprise. China is very much hi tech developed and driven and in some ways..
reminds me of “Snowball’s” dream of life after the windmill in George Orwell’s “Animal Farm.” Technology has, along with the smart phone, QR code and various Apps, streamlined and made day to day, mundane tasks easier in China today. Simply point, scan and go! However, that is not to say we have reached Snowball’s Utopian world. Sadly, as is the case with most things humans invent to make life easier, such as the motor car, jet engine, atomic energy, social media, there is a down side.
Perhaps Orwell was correct in pointing out that our search for Utopia is fruitless. No different to searching for the end of the rainbow and a pot of gold. What humans create, humans also destroy. Despite changes, things stay the same. We are our own worst enemies. But we digress.
What really caught our eye was the “About Us” page on the site in question. Whilst we squirm a little at the tag: “Alternative News Media” that is sometimes hung on Aim2D, this self description from “Wolf Daily” struck a chord with us, despite it being largely US centric news. We have copied it verbatim below. You can read their cover of the article here: China has won AI battle with U.S. and is heading towards global dominance – Pentagon
Wolf Daily: about us
We created Wolf Daily as an antidote to the corporate news monolith which has devolved into little more than a protection racket for the ruling class. The vast majority of large corporate news sources, regardless of positioning along the political spectrum, are little more than activist fear merchants. They are increasingly focused on tweet smackdowns, hyperbole and histrionics, instead of facts and context.
At Wolf Daily our mission is to focus on things that matter to the future of our readers and nation. Well informed people make better decisions about their lives. Informed citizens make for a more accountable government and a country that more clearly reflects the will of the people.
We offer current information along with historical context and analysis from our own reporting and syndicated sources. We seek open and honest dialogue about important topics and invite submissions from our readers to be considered for publication.
Why a daily email? Because news consumption should not be all consuming. Five to fifteen minutes a day is plenty of time to stay informed without becoming consumed. There is a well-established, inverse relationship between happiness and the amount of news consumed, particularly political news. Served up each morning in an easy to read and digest format, our daily email lets you consume the news in a healthy way without letting it consume you. Our website is updated continuously throughout the day.
30 Days To A Happier Life, Or Your Money Back! Our email is free, so you literally have nothing to lose. We invite you to read our email every day for a month while foregoing cable news and then write to us and tell us if your life has changed for the better.
