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 friends are both sad and bad on this subject as they don't remember the times they argued that the 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 and google is being sold to the police so that they can control us better. This illustrates that the 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 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.

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.

Manipulating people with misinformation. What's YOUR country up to?


How to solve real world problems:

Do direct action and keep doing it, get video and photos, use the media. Weather the negative reaction, negotiate, win. Problem solved, move on to the next problem.

One key thing you should not do is gas on or any of the

Conversations on 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

And the answer,_ 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 the use of target advertising to buy the election. Both and 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 pushing rightwing agenders we could well brake democratic norms for good. Its basic stuff.

Its very easy to have a on as it drives ad views for the . If you are progressive you could have a sensibly conversation on the with a few million other people were human activerty/community not ad driven consumerism is the outcome

Putting content into is a feed back loop which has marginal (and reducing) affect as for example all your doing is teaching the algorithms how to sell you and everyone who interacts with your content more "stuff" and in the end ideological mind/social control.

From thread *** so you are now rearly happy the labour policy has stayed the same, not changed at all etc. Were before you were very unhappy that it was something that only said it was... its an intresting point of view.

Worth a read for an explanation of were some of the right wing propaganda you might have been sharing on the the last few years comes from
