I think we covered this aspect already in this thread. It is just one part of a larger information operation that seems clear to me at least.

No but once when I was little, my sister and I tuned two radios to the same station and they were playing the same song a couple of seconds off. Maybe it had something to do with the delay they use to cover sneezes and curse words, but I don't really know.

Have a look at this, I was curious if there was a way to get out of the bubble, to stop being directed on where to look. This seems promising.

Agreed, and old school here. I use the old fashioned RSS to tailor my primary source of information. I receive over 2000 articles a day, obviously overload requires some filtering, but I much prefer filtering by scrolling past headlines I chose to receive, rather than filtering by anyone else's perception, i.e. editor/reporter/speaker/ad man...

I then wryly smile at Pope - I dip into many wells, only drinking deep when the water seems clear and inviting. I am amazed at how much just dipping selectively into MSM gives a new view on things. And when those identical clone reports are viewed right after/before other sources...well...

I am far from informed on anything. I do feel as though I know a few of the questions that should be asked, though. Old school.

Thanks for the add. I am expanding my security application acumen quite a lot from this thread.

The first link that I clicked on for a search in that web site was stopped by security software on my computer. I am not saying that it is a bad search engine, but I have my suspicions. I don't personally use Google, Bing, Ixquick or any of the major search engines. What I want is a search engine that can reveal things that a "normal" search engine cannot. Let's start with a cure for type 1 diabetes that can be done at home without surgery. That would get my attention! Otherwise, it's irrelevant to me.


Edit: I did find one interesting publication there. I am not willing to rule it out quite yet. I'm just glad that my security software was able to stop an intrusion from an infected site! I also notice that this search engine pulls up a lot of the "mainstream" info that is commonly available. I'm looking for a search engine that finds all the info that is not so easily found on the mainstream sources, with regards to finding cures that are not known through the mainstream sources. Is there such a thing? So far, I like what I found there in that it is something I didn't find with my "regular" search engine, and it may give me a fresh perspective. Thank you for sharing it, but it still shows me how information is controlled-even on the sites that are not controled by TPTB.

They type of control of search results you want would require a propose build crawler/spider with your search parameters preloaded into it. You would need to build it and program it yourself, find someone willing to host it, and set up a SSL tunnel to access it. It would not come cheap but such things can be had if you want such a service. No search provider would provide such custom services free.

I have been using DuckDuckgo.com a lot lately and Startpage.com both give good useful search returns without logging your info.

This is why I strongly encourage people to learn more about computers

Anyone with a decent knowledge of computers will know how to avoid having their personal data collected and used by companies, but so many people think they're "comfortable" with computers when all they actually know how to do is use the internet, do a spreadsheet and maybe download a youtube video. It's a total illusion of control.

You don't need to study computer science to learn how to improve your privacy, for the basics you can just Google for a guide, there are plenty out there, but most people don't even think to do that

It's really important that people are taught how to use computers. I hope schools will soon start implementing courses in coding and general essential knowledge, otherwise we're at the mercy of bloody Apple or Microsoft

Every search engine keeps track of your browsing history and tailors its results to match your interests. If your range of results grows narrower, it is because you have been limiting yourself to sources you like. The wider you range in terms of where you get your information, the more diverse your search results will be. I get my news from many different countries; google isn't even sure what language I speak.

I have been involved with computers since long before there was such a thing as google. Longer even than an apple even. My first computer was a Xerox 820 PC with an 8" floppy drive. I hope people realize how important it is to remain as anonymous as possible because freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose at this point in our history.
