If you are taught bitterness and anger, then you will believe you are a victim. You will feel aggrieved and the twin brother of aggrievement is entitlement. So now you think you are owed something and you don’t have to work for it and now you’re on a really bad road to nowhere because there are people who will play to that sense of victimhood, aggrievement and entitlement, and you still won’t have a job.
The above is something to always remember. Facebook doesn’t ban “Hate Speech;” Facebook bans speech that it hates. There’s also no real, consistent, overarching metric for what exact speech – or simple “keywords” – that Facebook will hate at any given moment. Indeed, their own official specifics are so broad and encompassing – pretty much any negative comment about anyone except healthy, straight, White men – that they could, by design, never be fairly or systematically enforced.
No; at the end of day, Facebook only bans speech that they hate. And, the speech that they hate is largely any speech that might get them tarred and feathered in the Lamestream Media, who very much hate Facebook, and/or might have Zuckerberg in front of Congress again.
No, I’m not currently in FB Jail. And yet, so many others are – though very few on Left or non-Whites. And no small amount of them have been censored and removed from the public square for simply sharing something that was already on Facebook. 🙄
Like all forms of Information Control, book burnings in the modern era may look different than in the past, but they are the same in intent and effect. Whether it’s deplatforming, demonetizing, or silently limiting the reach of posts, it’s all just the book burning of the Internet Age.
Some things only change in detail and specific methodology. Whether it’s Goebbels’ Reichsministerium fÃ¼r VolksaufklÃ¤rung und Propaganda (RMVP), Facebook, Twitter, or the insinuative monster that is Google, the strict control of information is a prerequisite for the sought after tyrannical rule. Changing the name or the specific methods of control doesn’t change the fundamental fact of it or the effects it has upon Peoples.
In some ways, I almost feel sorry for Mark Zukerberg – almost. I might even actually do so if he didn’t so richly deserve pretty much everyone’s despite, and if I were actually capable of extending that level of empathy to an enemy.
Zuckerberg is beset from both sides. Americans rightfully hate and loath him because he’s used Facebook to silence them and shape public opinion to further Democrat agendas. And, at the same time, Democrats and other enemies of the American People loath him because Facebook has been less than totally successful in their attempted censorship.
And it’s not just rank and file Americans and Leftists. House Democrats have demanded his testimony on not preventing Donald Trump’s 2016 election victory and the Dept. of Justice is trying to rescind parts of the law that allows Facebook – and other social media platforms – to pick and choose who and what topics they silence while maintaining their protection from lawsuits.
Yeah, seems that just about everybody is unfriending Mark Zuckerberg. Of course, it’s not like he probably cares. One, he’s already got more money than he could ever reasonably spend. And, Two, it’s not like “unfriending” meant that any significant number of us or the Left have or will stop using his platforms and, thereby, being part of his product portfolio and income stream.
