Ok I get the left has gone full bonkers so no need to rehash the obvious. Also I get the MSM , Tech Oligarch, and billionaires are all biased towards
the left and purposely hide, ignore, and block pro right leaning stories and information. Again its obvious and if you dont see it then it would be
like trying to have a discussion with a rock.
However, with all this going on with the Biden , the left, and twitter blocking content it worries me that the right is pushing for things that can be
used for censorship but at even greater consequences.
Now they are pushing to undo Section 230 . Why? why isnt the right letting the consumer dictate the market and using the market to address the rampant
bias from the left?
There are alternative sites to twitter why isn't trump using them? sure they aren't as popular but if trump moved to such site it would become even
more popular. Heck better yet why isn't someone with the cash taking advantage of the Social media hate and starting their own site and putting some
serious cash to promoting it?
My problem with the republicans is that they are fixing the short term problem with long term consequences and it makes no sense what they are
proposing when you start looking into it. In essence the Right is promoting censorship as well.
the republicans are all up in arms about twitter,fb,instagram, and other online mediums censoring republican favored information as they should be.
However, the same republicans basically gave the ISP full control to censor ALL content down the road by undoing net neutrality.
The long term consequence is the following.
Today twitter pisses you off with their bias. However TODAY you have the option to go to other sites such as ATS to interact with,speak your mind, and
get others opinion. TODAY you even have the option to start your own website or social media platform.
LONG TERM with net neutrality gone and completely being enforced you wont have those options. You wont be able to go to other sites, you wont be able
to start your own website or social media on the internet, because the ISP can legally restrict access to any sites they care to. Like Verizon did to
NETFLIX about 5 or more years ago when net neutrality was first repealed.
Verizon told netflix , hey give us some money or we will slow traffic to your site . Sure enough Netflix first told them to F off . Then verizon
PURPOSELY slowed traffic to all their customers making netflix unusable, enough so that netflix actually paid verizon the money and the traffic
flowed once again as normal.
Do republicans honestly think that the deepstate ( or insert name here) wont use the repeal of net neutrality to censor content online like social
media and the MSM is doing today?
Now you have the republicans pushing for the draconian solution once again with huge potential to bite us in the arse in the long run as well , with
repealing section 230. Do republicans honestly think that repealing 230 wont be used by the deepstate ( or insert name here) to intimated content
providers and force them to comply with their narrative?
Like I said the left has gone bonkers no need to even rehash that IMO. However, the game i see being played is one we have seen before on how the two
party system uses distractions to herd the masses into regulations that have serious long term consequences. By the time many realize those
consequences it will be to late to do anything about it.
The answer is definitely not supporting the left or voting for biden so I'm not suggesting that, but Proceed with caution.
The enemy of your enemy is not necessarily your friend .
IMO I think trump is being played as a patsy and has no understanding of the technologies at play or the long term consequences of what he is doing.
the alternative is that he is on it.
They have most of the tools to completely censor the internet now and once they do it will be to late. The internet was what allowed us to expose the
rampant corruption ,work , coordinate,fight back against disinfo, fight back against the propoganda, fight back against the narrative, and
communicate with each other on a global scale. The consequence are so bad that the ISP aren't even using the repeal of net neutrality yet to their
advantage, despite paying billions to undo it. If they did took advantage of the repeal of net neutrality today the backlash would be tp great. Its
standard Machiavellian tactics. They have to do it very slowly and over a period of time to decrease the revolt and backlash of the people. I assume
once trump is gone we might start feeling some of this backlash.
I don't know what the answer is, but pretending the spoiled food we are being given and eating doesn't smell bad doesn't help either.
The only way I see out of this and escaping the incoming future of a 1984 society we are being hoarded too, is an impossibility. We would have to
drop our political parties loyalty and come together as one to stand up to BOTH party, MSM, and established Oligarchs.
