Leaked Google Briefing Admits Abandonment of Free Speech for 'Safety And Civility', calls free speech "Utopian" and proposes a new internet of "Good Censorship", mostly by silencing Populists, Nationalists and anything considered to be a 'Conspiracy Theory' by useless_aether in censorship

Have we as a collective completely forgotten that we ourselves have the right and power to choose the content we engage with? What is this insane collapse into allocating that power to an entity outside ourselves?

It's hard to fathom how anyone is left that does not see through her yellowed, cracked veneer of corruption.

Magnora7 is a goddam hero. He is well-informed, lucid, and a highly effective communicator. He made this place so we'd have somewhere to go that didn't suck.

I voted this post "funny", due to its absurdity.

What a buncha baloney. I don't fit their "profile" at all, not even a little.

Also, they don't seem to understand that false flag is not the same as "staged". Or that "groups of scientists" is not the same as corporate-funded "science."

Very dismissive for people that are pretending to do "science."

Yeah, it seemed crazy how fast their last race to the bottomfeeding has been, until it became clear they're going public, and just before the next election cycle. I really wish Aaron hadn't been targeted for destruction. He'd be so up in their face against this.

I'm guessing that Clinton still has 571 pledged super-delegates, so she's well positioned to sabotage democracy for the U.S. again.

There it is right there.

And then a bunch of my well-intentioned peers will go vote for "the first woman president" despite the fact that the woman in question has no soul, no heart, and no moral compass. And a record of criminal activity that those well-meaning peers resolutely refuse to look at. Sigh.

Twitter Bans Former Asst. Treasury Secretary Paul Craig Roberts by fred_red_beans in censorship

There ought to be massive uprising about the Orwellian censorship/state propaganda machine we are in already. It's just going to get worse the more brazen they get.

This is very serious. We live in an ever-worsening 1984/Brave New World hybrid nightmare.

E.T.A.: At least in this case it is untrue thankfully (though I stand by my above statement nonetheless) It was an account in his name but not by him, and he asked they remove it: https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/10/26/my-suspended-twitter-account/

And the clarification proffered is just as bad--saying "we voted this way bc we the US gov't want to keep executing people for our own reasons." As if it's not long past time we stop "lawfully" killing people.

Crucifying Julian Assange by salvia_d in conspiracy

[–]FormosaOolong 3 insightful - 1 funny3 insightful - 0 funny4 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

This is an excellent article, especially this: "What is happening to Assange should terrify the press. And yet his plight is met with indifference and sneering contempt. Once he is pushed out of the embassy, he will be put on trial in the United States for what he published. This will set a new and dangerous legal precedent that the Trump administration and future administrations will employ against other publishers, including those who are part of the mob trying to lynch Assange. The silence about the treatment of Assange is not only a betrayal of him but a betrayal of the freedom of the press itself. We will pay dearly for this complicity."

The press should have been making a big deal of this all along, and especially now, but oh wait, they are the propaganda arm of the overlords.

the reddit purge also banned freethoughtproject and all cop watch subs. this is a horrible, coordinated thoughtcrime enforcement campaign.

how do we wake people up? this is the opposite of everything we stand for, red, blue, purple, or any other political hue. it MUST stop before it becomes too entrenched.

I watched this unfold in real time. It was horrible, and not only was her career and reputation destroyed, but hundreds of thousands of ME/CFS patients were thrown under the bus (again.)

The person responsible for having her arrested was her employer, Annette Whittemore, who happens to be the spouse of Harvey Whittemore, (who subsequently underwent his own mob-related scandals.) https://eu.rgj.com/story/news/2016/02/17/nevada-lobbyist-harvey-whittemore-leaves-prison/80538236/ (puff piece)

Interestingly, the other person who discovered a possible ME/CFS - related retrovirus in the 80s, Elaine De Frietas, also had her work shut down.

Thanks for such good venting! I feel the same way. The change needs to be so much deeper and more fundamental than politics. All our systems and institutions are built on corrupt principles that can never bring prosperity and thriving for all.
