YouTube removes Project Veritas video on Pinterest’s ‘censorship of conservative views’ by fred_red_beans in censorship

Yep, you're right, it's easier when both "opposing" sides are controlled, which they are. This story boils down to abortion as well, which is just a divisional topic as it is. There are always going to be those who are for and against abortion and it's an easy topic to get people to argue with each other about. Still, everyone should have the right to express their opinion either way. I believe censorship, whether exposed by controlled opposition or not, is worth noting as it degrades our ability to communicate with each other and at the very least understand each other.

What is an opinion worth if one can not even question it or listen to a different opinion? How is highlighting censorship crying? The conservative vs liberal rhetoric is a device of divide and conquer as far as I'm concerned.

Two things that don't get talked about enough in the media: 1) South Korea had 2M+ person protests lasting 6 months to oust their President after she got caught involved in occult activity and corruption. 2) Iceland had protests in 2009 after the banking crisis that resulted in a new constitution. by magnora7 in ShowerThoughts

I think one of the reasons for Russiagate was to distract people with good intentions, to guide the narrative away from Lybia and certainly the DNC's corrupt way of appointing Hillary over Sanders.

I was aware of the South Korean political scandal, but was under the impression it was mainly due to corruption and had not heard of an occult link.

The father Choi Tae-min:

was the leader of a South Korean cult combining elements of Buddhism, Christianity, and traditional Korean Shamanism[1]. Choi, originally a Buddhist monk, then a convert to Roman Catholicism, was married six times. He was the mentor of the impeached South Korean president, Park Geun-hye (the daughter of former president Park Chung-hee), until his death in 1994. He allegedly used his relationship with Park to solicit bribes from government officials and businessmen.

Icelanders refused to bail out their banks and jailed some of the CEO behind the failure. Their economy took a big hit, but GDP doubled since 2011

The US should have never bailed out the banks. When you fail in capitalistic business you're not supposed to get bailed out by the tax payers only to then give yourself huge bonuses.

Much of the fake main stream news is about narrative control so that the people in high places don't have the "problems" like South Korea and Iceland.

No, the US is blocking the purchase of oil from PDVSA. Chavez (Maduro's predecessor) steered the Venezuela economy towards heavy reliance on oil exports. With the US blocking oil exports, Venezuela has a hard time paying for and importing things not made in Venezuela like medicines.

Report: US Sanctions Have Cost 40,000 Venezuelan Lives

Based on a number of different studies, the report estimates that sanctions were responsible for 40,000 deaths in 2017-2018, and that there are a further 300,000 people at risk due to lack of access to medicines. This includes “80,000 HIV patients who have not had antiretroviral treatment since 2017, 16,000 people who need dialysis, 16,000 people with cancer, and 4 million with diabetes and hypertension.”

The Brave browser basics – what it does, how it differs from rivals by fred_red_beans in Internet

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

What sets Brave apart is its aggressive anti-ad attitude. The browser was built to strip online ads from websites and its maker's business model relies not only on ad blocking, but on replacing the scratched-out ads with advertisements from its own network.

Brave also eliminates all ad trackers

Brave loads pages twice as fast as Chrome and Firefox

Brave will scrub sites of ads and ad tracking, then replace those ads with its own advertisement, which will not be individually targeted but instead aimed at an anonymous aggregate of the browser's user base.

The foundation of the Brave economy will be "Basic Attention Tokens" or BATs, which have a value derived from a cyber-currency. Those tokens will be awarded based on user attention, or more plainly, time spent viewing ads and content. Brave users who agree to receive ads will be rewarded with BATs; the tokens can be passed to publishers as support for their sites.

BATs is an opt-in system.

In historic indigenous cultures the use of psychedelics is considered a spiritual type of experience guided by a shaman. A problem with having psychedelics illegal is that young people will experiment anyways without guidance, respect, and knowledge. Comparatively to other drugs, mushrooms are fairly harmless, although I think they can bring forth tendencies or issues within the person ingesting them. Some individuals are just not well suited for their use. I've seen some individuals who just were never quite the same after the use of psychedelics. For those who's temperament is suited for it, I think mushrooms can be a good tool for self reflection, exploration, and contemplation.

Thanks for the post, although washingtonpost's paywall sucks

Denver voters deciding on decriminalizing "magic mushrooms"

If the initiative passes, the use and possession of psilocybin mushrooms by adults 21 and older would be at the lowest law enforcement priority in Denver. This would prevent the city from using resources to impose penalties. The drug cannot be sold — but can be grown by users.

Another effect of everyone working so much is that there is much less time for people to communicate with each other. While we are out working we depend on small groups of administrators, politicians, judges, and corporations take responsibility for issues that face us and our communities. Most people have little to no interaction with the workings of our political, judicial, or educational systems. We are only allowed to influence them by proxy via elections. Responsibility is lifted from us by these institutions, and we are much poorer for it. It could be seen as less efficient for groups of people to take the time be able to come to consensus on issues, but if people had more time in the first place, we would all have to learn to take responsibility for ourselves as a group or community. Currently most people are so concerned about just making it and chasing the dollar that they are distracted from other things, that while would take some work, may have a greater value.

Congressmen and senators don't care about what their constituents really think or care about, they only want to know what message will help their re-election and what they can do for their donors.

Most people don't have any idea how many are in their county jail. Shouldn't the people in a community have a say or at least some insight into the how members of their community are being "corrected" and why? Judges are appointed by politicians.

Corporations fund the colleges to ensure they get the next generation of employees they want.

It doesn't have to be this way, but while we complain about the conditions imposed upon us by the system, it is also our collective choice to continue to engage in it.

MoA - Venezuela - Guaidó Got Snookered - White House Starts Beating War Drums by fred_red_beans in Venezuela

Everyone in Washington believed that significant figures in the Venezuelan government would change sides. They did not do so. Vladimir Padrino rejected the coup within an hour after Guaidó announced it. It seems that the Guaidó side got played by the Venezuelan Defense Minister and several other officials and officers. They seem to have promised to support Guaidó only to bait him into taking steps that would embarrass him.

Guaidó and his backers in the Trump administration were made to believe that some significant elements of the Maduro government and of the army would turn on Maduro. They launched a coup attempt that fell apart within a few hours as no one changed sides. All their blustering has now been deflated. Guaidó has lost his credibility. Washington may still support him but in Caracas there is likely no one left who believes in him.

Bolton, Pompeo, Abrams and of course Donald Trump have been exposed as buffoons who, despite their powerful positions, can not even organize a simple coup. They publicly supported through dozens of tweets and interviews what turned out be a bad amateur theater play. The diplomatic corps will joke about this episode for the next decade.
