About

Consent Factory, Inc. is a market-leading provider of post-ideological management and consulting services to private and public sector clients throughout the developed (and in some cases developing) world. Experts in the fields of behavioral and psychological conditioning, we offer an extensive range of individually-customized strategic planning/implementation services in the following areas: education (all levels); parenting; advertising and marketing; media (traditional and alternative); governance; arts and culture; science; medicine; and many others. Our specialties include: privatization; globalization; deindustrialization, outsourcing and offshoring; crisis generation/exploitation; pathologization of political/moral issues; establishment and maintenance of epistemological/perceptual boundaries; normatology; narrative reinforcement strategies; secularization of underexploited markets; attention span reduction; confusion optimization; and so on.

Please note that, although we do, from time to time, coordinate with corporate-friendly dictators and vicious, authoritarian regimes on behalf of some of our clients, the Consent Factory remains fanatically committed to the establishment and maintenance of global neoliberalism (i.e., laissez faire capitalism), and thus opposes all forms of despotism that prevent our clients from forcing into debt, relentlessly privatizing, and then ruthlessly exploiting whatever markets they (i.e., these despots) control. Simply put, we don’t care how you oppress your own people at home, as long as you’re playing ball with our clients globally.

Legal Notices

The Consent Factory, Inc., thanks to some sort of bureacratic trickery our legal team is still trying to unravel, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Amalgamated Content, Inc., a fictitious business name owned and operated by C. J. Hopkins, a relatively low-level part-time employee formerly based in our Berlin offices, whose current whereabouts are unknown. Here’s our most recent surveillance photo of him, which is rumored to have been taken during the summer of 2016 on an island somewhere in the Ionian Sea …

All original content on this blog is the private intellectual property of Mr. Hopkins, who, weirdly, as the result of that above-mentioned bureacratic trickery, is both one of our employees and, technically, our boss (and who, despite his ridiculous “hippyish” appearance, retains a battalion of extremely rude and gratuitously litigious intellectual property attorneys who, trust us, you do not want to mess around with). Any and all third party content on this blog remains the exclusive property of whoever we stole it from, which Mr. Hopkins had nothing to do with.

Comments

The Consent Factory welcomes readers’ comments, which shall be subject to moderation by our in-house moderators according to some arbitrary set of ever-changing standards we’re not going to waste your time trying to appear to articulate. However, here are a few simple guidelines you may want to follow:

(1) comments from across the political spectrum are welcome — although we are all soulless neoliberals here at the Factory, we appreciate comments and criticism from those with opposing views, as we can use them to try to manipulate you in the future;

(2) comments primarily consisting of insults/personal abuse, whether directed at us or at other commenters, are, among other things, incredibly boring, and will be summarily deleted;

(3) if we even think you’re a machine or an astroturfer, or that you’re attempting to sell something on our blog without cutting us in on it, your comments will be deleted with extreme prejudice and you’ll be banned from our blog and burn in the fires of Hell for all eternity.

Privacy Policy

The Consent Factory takes your privacy very seriously, or at least we pretend to. Thus, our privacy policy has been developed in accordance with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which “promotes fairness and transparency for all individuals in respect of their personal data.” The Consent Factory’s privacy policy is simple. We don’t collect your data, except for your email address and whatever other information you choose to provide to us if you subscribe to our monthly newsletter. By subscribing to our monthly newsletter, you consent to our collection and use of such data as follows: (1) we collect your data on a MailChimp mailing list, which we use to send you our monthly newsletter; (2) there is no number two. We don’t do anything else with your personal data. We don’t store your personal data, except on MailChimp, or share your data with any third parties, except MailChimp (which transfers data outside of the European Economic Area to the United States under protection of EU/US Privacy Shield). There are, however, certain situations in which the Consent Factory might be compelled to share access to your data without your explicit consent, e.g., “if required by law, to protect the life of an individual, or to comply with any valid legal process, government request, rule or regulation.” That unlikely scenario aside, your data is safe with us. Of course, if you are involved in some sort of nefarious activity that might lead to law enforcement agencies compelling us to share your data, we assume you will want to subscribe to our newsletter with an untraceable email address, and a fake name … which we do not in any way encourage or condone, but are powerless to prevent you from doing.
