This is so ludicrous, like a “friendly,” “reasonable,” “concerned” party functionary insisting that the sky is green with purple polka-dots, with the implied threat of imprisonment, torture or death for the nonbelievers.
I thought this house of cards would implode years ago. I had no idea there are so many clueless, intimidated, fearful sheep in this country. But if you need a dose of courage, all you need to do is peer over the heads of the sheep in front of you to see the gates to the slaughterhouse ahead. There is no safety in numbers. Look at history.
A highly popular subreddit devoted to posting information which proposed information outside the official narrative to 9/11 has been “Quarantined” by the Reddit Administrators. The community has effectively been cut off from the rest of the platform and anyone who wishes to view its contents are forced to go through a checkpoint while being redirected to a government website.
On Thursday, the subreddit r/911truth was placed under a Reddit Quarantine. The Reddit Administrators claimed that the subreddit posts misinformation and then directed people seeking information on 9/11 to the official government website….
Speaking of reddit, I suspect Aaron Swartz would know what I’m talking about:
These hackers’ suicides are eerily similar
Curious crowds gathered on Dec. 28 outside Dinosaur BBQ and an auto mechanic’s shop across the street from the new hotel whose boxy, gray industrial facade gives it an institutional air, like a hospital or a prison.
“They just opened that place, and someone goes there to die,” said a worker at Tomato N’Basil pizzeria around the corner, on Fourth Avenue. He had been among the crowds when they wheeled Dolan’s body out the door in a bag.
“What could have been so bad for him to do that?” he asked.
The answer may never be known. What is known is Dolan was the second member of a small team of brilliant Internet activists who developed SecureDrop — a whistle-blower submission system — to commit suicide by hanging in Brooklyn.
The first was Aaron Swartz, the wunderkind computer programmer, entrepreneur and activist who co-founded the social news site Reddit when he was still in his teens. According to the NYPD, Swartz, 26, hanged himself with a belt in the Crown Heights apartment he shared with his girlfriend in January 2013. His death came a month before he was scheduled to go on trial in federal court on wire-fraud and hacking charges. Swartz faced 35 years in jail and more than $1 million in fines for allegedly downloading millions of files in 2011 from the online academic archive JSTOR at MIT. Prosecutors said Swartz intended to distribute the articles for free online.
Swartz’s death was greeted with widespread outrage across the cyber universe where he was known as an outspoken activist hero, advocating for the protection of the First Amendment and successfully leading the charge in 2011 against the Stop Online Piracy Act, a federal bill that he felt would severely curb freedom of speech on the Internet….
No need for sheep to pay attention here, this is so far over their heads as to be otherworldly. But for the target audience, i.e. those who are paying attention, the message is clear.
