Socialists and Fascists Have Always Been Kissing Cousins by useless_aether in Freedom

Funny how many capitalists see socialism as a route to authoritarianism.

And many socialists similarly see capitalism as a route to authoritarianism.

The problem is not the capitalism or socialism. The problem is the authoritarianism!

Former Hillary Adviser: "Hillary will run again. She will not allow this humiliating loss at the hands of an amateur to end the story of her career.” by useless_aether in NotTheOnion

Seems like she's never really been told "no" on anything seriously significant before and it's hard for her to accept. Like many people of great success, their life has been a long string of wins, and their ego can't handle a loss so they double down.

Yeah that's the worst part, is she's apparently going to do it out of personal spite, rather than to try and better the country.

Propaganda Central — The Tavistock Institute was funded by the Rockefeller Foundation is a research program involved in human behavior, social sciences, and psychology. Today the Tavistock Institute is covertly involved with social networking sites, alternative media, and conspiracy forums. by magnora7 in propaganda

The site GodLikeProductions.com, for instance, is a conspiracy forum that will sometimes leak through something of high value, but is largely overwhelmed by tavistock disinformation. In fact if you mention the word "tavistock" on those forums, you will instantly be banned by a computerized word detector within seconds of posting.

In my opinion, if you want to see what Tavistock's propaganda of the day is, just read the headlines at GodLikeProductions.com, which sometimes uncomfortably echo headlines in the mainstream media. It is unclear how much influence Tavistock actually has, but certain stories come and go in a way that is very forced across many media sites all at once. For instance, it seems Tavistock was behind the whole "flat earth" phenomenon that got out of control last year and has since died completely down. They push low-quality nonsense like this to destroy the conspiracy forums, destroy the quality of general discussion in real life, and get people divided and conquered about nonsense issues, while real crimes of humanity go unchecked and unnoticed.

I think Tavistock is one of the primary organizations intentionally ruining forums on the internet, not to mention the effect it's had on mainstream media.

Instead of blaming people for what should happen, what should I do for the community? by Ginidoe in FakeNews

Voting does almost nothing. Be the change you want to see in the world, every day. The world needs kindness and love more than ever, when we are drowning in media designed to divide and conquer us.

Oh sorry I didn't realize it was a private sub, my bad.

But basically JamesColesPardon said that he would prefer the pyramid of debate system, but "didn't know how to implement it" so I said to just do it like saidit and have that be the only rule. He said he would like to do that, but "I like it just don't know how I can make it enforcible with the personalities currently running things."

Then I asked him if he meant the mods or the admins? He dodged that question and said he liked saidit and said goodbye.

Then today he writes this post about their new sub changes, which are the opposite of being more transparent and straightforward.

It strikes me as pretty ironic.

And look at this interesting conversation I had 13 days ago, about /r/conspiracy mod rules, with the guy who wrote the announcement of this being implemented. https://www.reddit.com/r/conspiracy_conclave/comments/9sf5zl/its_worth_it_to_argue/e91n83t/

Either his arm is seriously being twisted, or he's ignorant about what makes for good rules, or he's just being misleading. I hope it's due to ignorance rather than malice.

Yeah exactly. They moved the opposite direction of transparency, and their plans only create more arbitrary rules that only trolls will take the time to follow...

Home page issue by fschmidt in SaidIt

[–]magnora7 3 insightful - 1 funny3 insightful - 0 funny4 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

The home page is home. All and home are similar, but home has a few things removed, like /s/ads. Subscribed is your subscribed subs.

Hope that clears things up. It's not too complicated. We might make subscribed the home page one day, when saidit has enough content to warrant that.

We've been thinking of adding the ability to change your default home page to subscribed in you user preferences. Sounds like this would solve your issue. We'll bump that up on our priority list.

Super cool find! Very interesting.

I love how both the British and Americans all look like Japanese people haha. I wonder if the artist had ever seen a white person. Probably not.
