When people deny the history of reposabilerty then they deny reality and join the "post truth world" of Trump and Boris.
The majority of my #failbook friends are both sad and bad on this subject as they don't remember the times they argued that the #dotcons were not evil and cat memes were the right thing to do as the world heated up and is now catching fire.
There is lots more to this. In this case the power that you give to #failbook and google is being sold to the police so that they can control us better. This illustrates that the #dotcons are total social control and feed into the force side of the state. Who would think cat memes could do so much harm to us all.
Note: am more focused on the social rather than individual. Yes #failbook is used by us as individuals. But it easy to ignare that it has unaccountable power to change us and shape us as communitys, groups and socierty. This is actually a technical and UI issue created by business models that are pushed by a #deathcult flavor of Capitalism.
Thoughts from #failbook
It always surprises me anew when people show they have zero/negative understanding of the power and empowerment of DIY grassroots organizing. When am actively, not to say a bit annoyingly, doing open process to be meet with "you just wont to be king" is a easy to understand indictment of the people shouting. Its basic stuff to hear them saying i wont to be king NOT YOU. Which of course ignores the DIY grassroots part in that the is NO KING in the #4opens world ;)
Ok should the title be something more relevant like rebooting indymedia - were did we come from were are we going
http://hamishcampbell.com/index.php/projects/4opens/ as a way of addressing meany of the problems that indymedia ended with.
if you are intrested in why I am telling you that you are likely sharing a lot of #rightwing propaganda
Manipulating people with misinformation. What's YOUR country up to?
Conversations on #failbook The uspoken question is what practical alternative have YOU (as in the wider horazontalism movement) built today and are building for tommorw. The answer to this is generlay bad stinky air. Build something, don't just gripe on #failbook
And the answer https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fear,_uncertainty,_and_doubt lots of this. They cannot think any more. Both sad and bad, good illustration of the problem.
When we do get the General Election we face a crises that will dwarf #Brexit the use of target #dotcons advertising to buy the election. Both #failbook and #Google will receive 100's of millions in political advertising. Neather mainstream side, you and me, will see or be aware of this messaging. This money will directly stir up narrow hatred and divison. With #tredtionalmedia pushing rightwing agenders we could well brake democratic norms for good. Its basic stuff.
Its very easy to have a #flamewar on #failbook as it drives ad views for the #dotcons. If you are progressive you could have a sensibly conversation on the #openweb with a few million other people were human activerty/community not ad driven consumerism is the outcome https://activism.openworlds.info/public

And for people who say this post is gobbledygook if you click on any of the links you will soon find posts defining each term. The #openweb is made of links its both sad and bad that meany lazy people i have forgotten this simple thing.
Worth a read for an explanation of were some of the right wing propaganda you might have been sharing on the #dotcons the last few years comes from https://electronicintifada.net/content/inside-israels-million-dollar-troll-army/27566 #failbook
