A crosspost says "Check out the sub I'm in!", whereas 'normal' posts just say "Don't forget to look at the 'other discussions' tab!".

What's the purpose of a crosspost? A crosspost is a signal that says "There is a post in a sub I never heard of, but I might find interesting." In other words, crossposts would amplify interactions on saidit.

Twenty years on from 9/11, the ‘War on Terror’ has morphed into a ‘war’ against the West’s own populations by auch999 in NoNewNormal

The obligatory references to ‘freedom and democracy’ from Western leaders to mark the 20th anniversary of 9-11 seemed particularly hollow this year bearing in mind what is currently being rolled out in the countries they govern. [...]

we seem to be moving on to a new chapter. One in which the target populations for ’colonisation’ are for once not abroad, but at home.

Consider the way that the countries which invaded Afghanistan – and took part in the other wars mentioned above, under the banner of ‘Freedom and Democracy’, have morphed into authoritarian police states since March 2020, with hard lockdown Australia being the most shocking example.

Stay at home orders. The arrest of people not following the ‘rules’. The quite appalling threat that those who are unvaccinated won’t ever again be able to participate in everyday life – even though we know the new vaccines don’t prevent transmission. People have even been prevented from visiting their seriously ill loved ones in hospital, or hugging bereaved relatives at funerals. Just how inhumane is that?

The bombs may not have been falling on Western populations, as they did on Afghans, Libyans and Iraqis, but nevertheless I don’t think it’s hyperbolic at all to describe what‘s been going on these last 18 months as a kind of war. There’s certainly been relentless psychological warfare, designed to wear us down physically and mentally, with lockdowns and threat of further lockdowns being a key component in the new ‘Project Fear’. [...]

‘The Blair Creature’ , whose Institute has received generous funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, failed in his attempt to introduce inherently anti-British ID cards to Britain when he was prime minister but is now pushing hard – very hard – for vaccine passports. “I think you’re going to the stage where it’s going to be very hard for people to do a lot of normal life unless they can prove their vaccination status,” he declared menacingly earlier this year. And we all know that vaccine passports, if they do come in, won’t end with vaccination status, but morph in time into a full digitalised ID card and a freedom-busting social credit system.

Blair's not the only link. It’s hard not to notice that the same gatekeepers and narrative managers who have tried to police the debate on the Western-led wars of choice of the last 20 years, have, since 2020 been doing exactly the same on Covid. The pejorative and highly-weaponised terms ‘Anti-vaxxer’ and 'Covid-denier' have been used to smear anyone who expresses concern over the disproportionate measures and authoritarian direction of travel, in the same way that ‘Saddam apologist’ was used to decry anyone who questioned whether Iraq actually had weapons of mass destruction. Then, as now, the aim was to stop people from speaking out.

The biggest threat we face at present is not more Iraq-style wars of aggression abroad, but the war to destroy our liberties which is going on, right in front of our very eyes, at home – and carried on under the guise of protecting us from coronavirus.

Yet many anti-imperialists seem stuck in an early 2000s time-warp and aren‘t appearing to notice that the same people who promoted the conflicts they rightly opposed have moved on to the next stage of the anti-democratic, globalist agenda. Afghanistan may have been important in 2001, as the gateway to a series of post 9-11 wars, but in 2021, there’s an even bigger operation being undertaken. Namely, implementing the Davos set’s ‘Great Reset’ and all that it entails.

[...] Moscow’s Levada Center – officially labelled as a ‘foreign agent’ by the country’s Ministry of Justice over links to overseas funding – has been trying to shed light on how people living in the country think and feel. On Friday, it published its latest research into trust in the political system.

Asked, “What political system do you consider the best?” a mere 16% answered, “democracy according to the model of Western countries.” A slightly higher fraction – 18% – answered “the current system (ie. the Boris Yeltsin/Vladimir Putin model of the past three decades).” But the headline figure was that a whopping 49% said that they preferred “the Soviet system, like we had until the 1990s.” [...]

Every Web Browser Absolutely Sucks by [deleted] in Browsers

[–]auch999 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

True in general. However, there are two browsers which aren't spyware (as in 'it doesn't open connections to anywhere besides what the user requests by typing in URLs' (I verified this with https://mitmproxy.org )): Librewolf (a Firefox-fork) and Ungoogled Chromium (Chromium-fork). Most other browsers, including Brave (- which some people keep recommending -) are essentially spyware (- they open a lot of connections that have nothing to do with what the user requests). There are some browsers based on qtwebengine that are clean too, but qtwebengine doesn't get updated often enough and is therefore insecure.

Artix is not systemd-free. It uses elogind. The only systemd-free Arch flavor is Obarun. See https://sysdfree.wordpress.com/2021/08/15/333/
