The DoD is funding research programs at our universities, under the supervision of various US military agencies, to better understand how to control
social unrest, and apparently they’re using Facebook, and who know’s what else, to experiment on us under the direction of this research
program. I'm not sure I'll be using Facebook anymore, as it's looking more and more like it's becoming a social control tool of the impending police
This is how people of a certain mindset see this: They don't care how much an entity like the DOD knows about their personal lives because there is no
line of defense against people who just don't give a s**t. When you start caring about what they do, they control you at that point because you are
REacting to something rather than being proactive in order to keep it from happening in the first place. Someone is harassing you? Ignore it and it
really will go away. People who are butinski's like the DOD do what they do in order to get a response from people. When they don't get one, they move
on to people like you who take it personally.
If you don't mind my asking, why DO you care? The DOD did this on Facebook because it's social media. I don't think it's dawned on them that Facebook
isn't to be taken seriously because most users don't take it seriously. Kind of like here on ATS. Most people say things just to re-read it and tell
themselves that they're doing their part to make a difference. The internet may be a place to START making a difference, but whatever it is you're
trying to do, you have to do it offline in order to "seal the deal".
You also need numbers behind you. Having 1,000 people protest something is a start, but it's not going to accomplish anything. And when this happens,
police forces are out to make sure nothing bad happens. 1 million people would actually make a difference somewhere. At that point, what can the
military realistically do to stop it? Gas 1 million Americans? Not a good PR move. It's all political anyway and the politics of it all dictate that
that sort of thing cannot happen.
There's nothing they could do. They know it so they make busy work by commissioning these studies to see how they could stop those numbers before they
even get to that point, and the paranoid among us fall right into game and get upset.
I see children on both sides of the aisle, that's what I see.
