i've seen many intense fallacies propagated in this thread, but this one takes the cake.
they could easily do that, at some cost, they won't do it anytime soon, however, because it's a double edged sword and they *can* take down sources
with unpleasant content. my bookmarks are full of dead links, about GMO crops, about 9/11 - you name it. the archive has come under attack before and
the original content provider can defintely make it unavailable, too.
furthermore, (wrt the double edged nature of the beast): whatever you type here will have consequences. especially if and when tshtf, but they don't
need to be dramatic or easily recognized. at the very least you will influence all of us who read the stuff, but i' not talking about that, you know.
systematically analysing internet traffic can be used to anticipate moves, which is bad news if you wish to depend on clandestine action, which could
be as simple as out-maneuvering the cordon police during an open protest and/or busting agent provocateurs...
talk about it on the internet and they will send another guy you don't know yet. you might be late in the game when he's starting to set things on
fire, of course and get tear gassed as a result - etc.
which brings me to the last issue: much of this forum is esoteric babble. some of us can walk between the turds without stepping on one, but use it as
a source and the unprepared visitor will slip and come out caked in garbage. then look at my sources, youtube - MSM video cut - guardian, a news
outlet. whenever i post something genuinely 'internetty' it'll be unsourced or a blog (which is dangerously close to MSM newspapers, btw).
the internet by itself is as much a chance to lead paranoid people on a goose chase as it is a danger to people in power. in conjunction with the
usual audience, though, the danger is mitigated out of existance, because today's censorship doesn't rely nearly as much on culling information as
it does on brainwashing potential readers.
PS: capitalism? communism? fascism (well, you have a slight point there) are you kidding me?? how's a system with constant gov't intervention,
hundreds of obscure 'free trade' treaties and regulations, subsidies everywhere and a tax burden of roughly 50% across the west related
you don't know capitalism, i don't know capitalism, nobody knows it, because it never existed (and never will, it's an idealized version), argueing
about words strikes me as futile. oh, before i forget it, do you have any clue about fractional reserve banking? just asking, because at the first
glance, few poster in ths thread have. unfortunately, the 'fed' is the lynchpin, you can't talk about the rest (=everything economic, in effect) in
isolation without approaching orthodox cosmology in level of accuracy.
