How Reddit Was Destroyed and how SaidIt can Change the future. — Reddit died with Aaron Schwartz. It's only gotten worse since then. Today I'd like to take you through the steps how Reddit was destroyed and how sites like SaidIt can change the world by Orangutan in AntiExtremes

Reddit it is choc full of 'people' who have unrealistically human views now. So, so many of the people leaving comments are so pro-establishment that I'm always left wondering - Why haven't I met you in real life? You know? Not even my grandparents hold views like much of Reddit supposedly does.
Totally compromised website.

attack and scream loudly over you
attack and scream loudly over you
I've found the same thing. And funnily enough just this morning I was watching a years old news thing about government computers being used as sockpuppets way, way back - '05 after Katrina, when people were critical of the government's (lack of) response. So it turns out a favourite tactic of these goons was being extremely verbally insulting.
When you've got no argument to defend, I guess the only thing you can do is attack.

I only skipped through it. Is Alex Jones still pro-Trump? And is he telling the truth about changing his mind about Sandy Hook?
He sounded like a weasel trying to weasel his way out of a weasel hole to me.

The Term “Conspiracy Theory” Was Invented by the CIA In Order To Prevent Disbelief of Official Government Stories by turbokid in conspiracy
[–]Monoceros 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun - 1 year ago (0 children)
Just reading the Wikipedia page on this - a professor named Blaskiewicz claims this term was already derogatory from the 19th century. He fails to note that the media has deployed this term systematically - and always with reference to anti-establishment, anti-war and anti-corruption individuals and groups - and that, regardless, the CIA did at least co-opt it for such a use.

Oprah Winfrey Promotes “Shout Your Abortion” Movement Where Women Brag About Their Abortions | LifeNews.com by useless_aether in DepopulationWatch

If men gave birth instead of women, abortion would have been made legal 2,000 years ago, and tampons would be available from free vending machines across every city on the planet.
Fuck off with this radical pro-life shit. There's already 7 billion people on the planet, which we're killing. Abortion should be policy everywhere on the basis of environmental action alone.

I was listening to Dr David Halpin talk about the BBC the other day, and he described it as a significant component in a global propaganda network. Go to any hotel room in the world, pretty much, and the BBC is gonna be pumped through it.
The BBC Trust is headed by Sir Roger Carr, chairman of the largest British arms dealer, BAE systems. The trust is staffed by the Queen, and parliament to some extent, and is entirely undemocratic. The royals also worked with BAE to secure the largest arms deal in UK history - 5 billion - to Saudi, which is helping prosecute their genocide in Yemen. Google an article from the BBC about the royals, though, and it'll be about some new baby, or how the queen, just a nice old lady, looks pretty in her new pretty hat.
When it comes down to the crunch, the BBC is always on the side of the military industrial complex. And it is reliably anti-Socialist, anti-population, as evidenced in it's disgusting coverage of the popular movement headed by Jeremy Corbyn in the last couple of years.
It is a more subtle organisation than, say, Fox. But it is more insidious in this way: My parents believe everything that comes out of it; even friends of mine, my age.
When they said that Blair was vindicated by murdering the innocent in Iraq, it was obvious that the BBC, though no doubt containing a few intelligent, ethical journalists, is nothing but the guts of the war-whore telescreen that Orwell warned us all to look out for.
The BBC has 'minimal partisan bias'? Cardiff university found the BBC to be one of the most pro-war outlets in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq. I remember night one of the bombing campaign, and the BBC said, "Tonight, Tony Blair's leadership has been vindicated!"
How can an impartial 'news' service say that in the middle of night one of the bombing campaign? A million dead. Many more displaced. I disagree with this with a passion.
James Woods: "Dear Mr. President, when will you get a Department of Justice with teeth? Voter fraud, criminal “sanctuary” hideouts, mass illegal invasion, the opioid epidemic, gang murders, drug cartels are all rotting the soul of our blessed America. Unleash the dogs of war, sir. It is time." by Orangutan in politics
It is ambiguous, yeah. His really conservative politics makes me highly dubious though. And the word 'war' - used by a conservative American, in the age of MAGA, is dangerous in and of itself I reckon.
He seems like a peculiar guy really. Wasn't he pissed off about immigrants a while back? A guy who has all the pie he can eat, and he's angry about some people hoping to sweep up a few crumbs.
Unconditional Basic Income as the Social Vaccine of the 21st Century: It’s less costly to avoid problems from ever happening, than it is to fix problems once they do. It also happens to be the entire logic behind the vaccine, and its my belief that unconditional basic income has the same potential. by Orangutan in WorldNews
silence dissenters by turning off the spigot
silence dissenters by turning off the spigot
Interesting point. Still, it's hard to revolt when you're struggling, living paycheck to paycheck. The risk of missing a shift and getting laid off keeps revolution at bay. If they turned off the spigot, you'd get a revolution right quick. Perhaps.
What does he mean by that? More war. Is that what this planet needs?

The On Contact series is really good, and I implore you guys to check out more episodes. This one with Alfred McCoy, the guy who broke the story about the skyrocketing Afghan opium production post-invasion, is interesting too. Two great minds.
