Wasn't SOPA shot down already?
President refused to consider it?
I don't understand why people are still going on... like a dog who won't let go of an old bone and enjoy the steak sitting in front of him.
Yeah I know they can take that steak away....but
they can still POISON that steak and then
let you have it.
You have to be watching at all levels for all possibilities of deception and calculation, infiltration, manipulation, misinformation, subliminal
messaging ...There is a great deal to fear.
Focusing on only this aspect is so ...missing the forest behind the trees...imo
What you should fear is that already youtube and facebook are reading you. They know almost everything significant about you and that information is
marketable. In return, all the information you get is not all the information there is. You don't see ALL the new videos but get a random sampling
biased and heavily edited to be geared toward you and your particular interests.
The sites are watching your activity and place videos and advertising they think you might want and even news they think might interest you. "BECAUSE
Great but sometimes YOU WANT NEW information and YOU WANT to be exposed to FOREIGN IDEAS....just to open up your mind. "Same old - same old" is the
death knell for some of us and it will put a damper on and squash our creative process which is our most valuable and useful attribute. What you
don't use - you lose.
And that is a best case scenario - it might be the start of a far more calculated plan.
With this sort of edited, tailored and forcefed information people will not learn to expand and grow.
They will not change, be challenged, be spontaneous, new or adventurous.
They will not dabble in unknown territories because not only will they not be EXPOSED TO IT -
THEY WILL NOT EVEN KNOW they are not getting all the information there is.
They will not know they are NOT being shown the same page as their friend.
I don't want news and information geared toward MY TYPE.
I am not a TYPE.
This is dangerous and this is where they are heading.
Right now it looks like INNOCENT MARKETING.
It looks like they simply want to sell you things -
and so are innocently gauging your likes and dislikes...
SOON THIS INFORMATION WILL BE USED TO JUDGE YOU.
THE INTERNET WILL DISPENSE SUBLIMINAL MIND/behavior CONTROL via AUTOSUGGESTION among other unethical marketing ploys.
(as if it doesn't now)
Once they start editing and tailoring your
information.....FORGET ABOUT IT.
You lost the battle for independence and freedom.
You are fruit ripening on the vine, getting fat and waiting to be picked off -
Harvested for someone else's profit and pleasure.
You gotta love this country.
Such potential for capitalists.
