Spreading ‘online rumors’ that violate Beijing’s official ‘truth’ can get you 7 years in jail, and everybody is turned into a rat to tattle on their friends. China asserts that “Rumors violate individual rights; rumors create social panic; rumors cause fluctuations in the stock markets; rumors impact normal business operations; rumors blatantly attack revolutionary martyrs.”
Non-leftists at Facebook are in a distinct minority but they are banding together to challenge Facebook’s rampant censorship of conservative thought. These employees will face stiff peer pressure and possible retaliation for speaking up. Meanwhile, Facebook is being ‘punished’ by its users who are deleting their accounts en-masse.
China’s censorship is being exported throughout the world in order to “Uphold a clean and righteous space.” Xi wants to promote ‘works of culture and art’ but rejects all types of political dissent; it has the most draconian form of censorship and control of any nation on earth.
Xu Lin is a Technocrat who was formerly China’s top Internet regulator. Now he will be in charge of global propaganda. He is an insider to top leadership and undoubtedly will attempt to spread censorship throughout the world.
Technocrat data scientists are barking up the wrong tree. Note they never say that their black box algorithms can find truth, which logically should precede isolating falsehoods. Yet, their alleged breakthrough is hailed as ‘a new weapon in the fight against misinformation.’
Technocrats do very little in public because they have little regard for the political process or politicians. This is likely not the first such secret meeting as evidenced by the apparent collusion to censer certain alternative media at the same time.
Technocrat social media giants are seeking to dominate the entire propaganda industry and will throw progressives and the left-wing under the bus just as fast as conservatives. This clearly demonstrates that Technocracy has a different agenda than left or right, and is much more dangerous because of the collective power that they currently wield.
Technocrat birds of a feather flock together but take urgent warning here: If Google bows to autocratic China to censor its citizens, it will bow to any government to do the same. In fact, the censorship engine is already built and tested and effectively weaponizes the Internet against the people of the world.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) against Twitter after he discovered that his account was being shadowbanned…
Youtube is dominating the global news cycle by providing and pushing what it determines is ‘authoritative news’. The Google News Initiative will invest up to $100 million per year for the next three years to lifting up ‘quality journalism.’ Internally, they are developing a working group of newsrooms to crank out their own news stories.
