A smartphone can be abused to behave like a telescreen. f*c*book's telescreen is built *by* a bad actor *specifically* for that purpose.

More so than you suspected, zooer. Apparently the most recent massacre guy had a history of posting anti-Semitic screeds on Gab, so the Silicon Valley Establishment pounced on the opportunity to finally deplatform Gab in its entirety. Funding, domain registration, etc.

Deplatforming of wrongthinkers on the big social media sites has been going on for a while now, but this one freaks me out. This isn't just "you've been kicked off our platform" but rather "your platform has been kicked off the Internet". Gab was built as a place where wrongthink was not censored, and because of that, the thought police quickly labeled it as a "hate" (aka wrongthink) site. Google took them off the Play Store, but now they've been removed from THE.ENTIRE.INTERNET.

Needless to say, this could happen to anyone. It could happen to us. The evil empire of Silicon Valley is quickly becoming more transparent about its effort to establish a monopoly on thought.

I wonder if this will eventually make the dark web go mainstream? The Internet liberated our minds from television, but now the establishment is establishing a new set of choke points. With the thought police now pressuring domain registrars and payment processors to disappear wrongthinkers, even "alternative" sites are now at risk. I guess I'd better work on getting my .onion address set up.

Someone was very inconsiderate and insulting, and had the audacity to give me an Amazon gift card for Christmas. Now I have to go buy something from that destroy-the-rest-of-the-economy marketplace, because if I *don't* spend it, Blofeld and his gang of rapists get to keep the money and earn interest on it.


Honestly, I hate gift cards in general. I'd rather not receive a gift at all. This is a part of Stupidfest that I really despise -- if you have to give someone a gift card (or worse ... cash) you aren't really giving a gift, you're just checking off a box on a list of artificially-created obligations.

If it upsets you for so many reasons donate it to a homeless shelter or your church.

That totally misses the point. That would be like making a donation to Louis Farrakhan in the name of your local synagogue.

Obviously you hate the poor and churches.

 

Just buy a dashcam and record all the stupid crap you see while driving.

My policy is to ALWAYS chat with bots pretending to be humans when they pop up on the side of a web page without being asked.
