Roger Wicker, R-Miss., chairman of the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, will convene a hearing titled, “Does Section 230’s Sweeping Immunity Enable Big Tech Bad Behavior?,”at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, October 28. The hearing will examine whether Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act has outlived its usefulness in today’s digital age. It will also examine legislative proposals to modernize the decades-old law, increase transparency and accountability among big technology companies for their content moderation practices, and explore the impact of large ad-tech platforms on local journalism and consumer privacy.

THE SOCIAL MEDIA MOVIE
ALL THE FACTS IN THIS MOVIE ARE CORRECT.
REMEMBER THE FACTS PRESENTED IN THIS MOVIE ARE TRUE. THEY WERE TRUE BEFORE YOU EVER SAW THE MOVIE. THIS SITUATION STARTED IN 1994 THAT IS WHEN IT BECAME LEGAL TO ALLOW COMMERCIAL BUSINESS TO SELL PRODUCTS ON THE INTERNET. BEFORE 1994 ONLY ACADEMICS / UNIVERSITY / GOV/T USED THE INTERNET.
FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, GOOGLE, YOUTUBE, TWITTER, LINKEDIN Platforms have a mind of their own and they’ve become digital Frankensteins that no one knows how it works, but all we know is that it tends to reward the worst aspects in society.
The insiders say, “Look, I helped build this thing …”
FACEBOOK TRIGGERS YOUR EMOTIONS BUT YOU ARE NOT AWARE THAT THEY ARE DOING IT. YOU ARE COMPLETELY CLUELESS!!!!!!!
IF YOU WANT TO CONTROL A COUNTRY – THERE HAS NEVER BEEN ANY TOOL MORE EFFECTIVE THAN FACEBOOK.
“I was the co-inventor of the Facebook like button”
– HE WON’T LET HIS KIDS ON ANY SOCIAL MEDIA AT ALL.
the attention economy
Everyone is competing in a finite attention economy and that’s the problem we have to face is that because it is a commons, it is an attention commons, it is a consciousness commons, we are all sharing one airspace of finite amount of attention.. We have a shared commons and we are overshooting the limited capacity of attention that we have as a culture with essentially trivia.
We give people so much trivia and trivialities and egoism and passivity that we devolve not through restricting ourselves, but by overwhelming us with our vices.
THESE TECHNOLOGY PLATFORMS CREATE MASS CHAOS, LONELINESS, POLARIZATION, MORE ELECTION HACKING, AND MORE INABILITY TO FOCUS ON THE REAL ISSUES.
“This is checkmate to the humanity”
If you look at all the recommended videos across YouTube in English, what words were used the most. I think the list was hates, obliterates, destroys, owns, right?
Yup. Checkmate on humanity,” tools to destabilize every country, everywhere.
EVERY SINGLE ACTION YOU TAKE ONLINE IS BEING TRACKED, AND CAREFULLY MONITORED AND RECORDED.
ENGINEERS USE PSYCHOLOGY AGAINST YOU – TO MAKE YOU ADDICTED TO THE DEVISE – TO MAKE ADVERTISERS PAY MONEY FOR YOUR ATTENTION.
THESE ENGINEERS COULD BE CURING CANCER OR SAVING THE PLANET BUT THEY ARE WASTING THEIR BRAINS TEACHING COMPUTERS TO BE SMARTER ABOUT HOW TO SPY ON YOU EVEN MORE THEN HOW THE COMPUTER DID IT YESTERDAY AND YOU ARE DEFENSELESS
“A WHOLE GENERATION IS MORE ANXIOUS – MORE DEPRESSED”
What makes a healthy social fabric or weren’t designed by child psychologists to say what’s good for children.” They were just designed based on, TURNING UP ENGAGEMENT TO SELL ADVERTISING
Humane technology for kids
SHOULD YOU ALLOW YOUR KIDS ON SOCIAL MEDIA WHEN THE CEO’S OF THESE COMPANIES DON’T LET THEIR OWN KIDS GO ON IT?
Monopoly Power Anti-Trust Arguments that are proceeding right now on Capitol Hill.
The fact that children who want to opt out of Instagram, don’t have another place to go, but another addictive manipulative system of TikTok.
YOUR ARE MANIPULATED BY ALGORITHMS THAT ARE WATCHING EVERYTHING YOU DO. Advertising AI, IS trying to figure out how do we make sure that each session is as profitable as possible.
“What was the key to addicting a user and getting you for life?” “It was very simple,” he said. “All we had to do was get you to seven users in 10 days and then we had you for life.” That’s literally what that playbook said.
There’s a business model built on automating where 3 billion people’s attention goes, in languages that the engineers don’t speak,and you have cases where two years ago a teen girl who went to watch a dieting video, what does YouTube recommend on the right hand side for all those teen girls? Thinspiration anorexia videos because those were better at keeping attention.
NO ONE GETS THE SAME RESULTS FROM GOOGLE – YOUR RESULTS DEPEND ON WHERE YOU LIVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!
People don’t know they are being tracked and influenced.
One former Facebook executive, Tim Kendall, who was asked what worried him most, said: “In the shortest time horizon, I’m most worried about civil war.”
So important to remember… The Proud Boys are Roger’s Stone’s “Personal Army”. Jack and Roger are close. Just like Cassandra Fairbanks. Joe Rambo Biggs lives in Ormond Beach, FL. A mere two hour drive to Roger’s. A bit further to Miami. Here’s Cassandra Fairbanks’ video from Periscope of Nazi collaborator, Jack Posobiec.

Jaron Lanier interview on how social media ruins your life
GET OFF FOR YOU OWN GOOD AND FOR THE GOOD OF SOCIETY
“Tonight I deleted Facebook and turned off notifications from Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. It’s time to take back control of our minds.” “Just watched this and immediately deleted #Facebook and #Instagram. A must watch to understand the manipulation.”
Tonight’s Channel 4 news is a must watch. It shows how Cambridge Analytica suppressed voters with targeted ads on Facebook in 2016 for Trump. This is the same Cambridge Analytica who warped the Brexit campaign and 2019 election for Boris and Dom with lies on Busses and facebook.
where power lives
Be rich enough to hire the best attorneys and you can fight the government endlessly.
Brad Parscale was under investigation for stealing from the Trump campaign and RNC, $50 million level of plunder!
Sean Thomason @TheThomason
At the debate Biden should drop $750 on Trump’s podium and say “next year’s on me, chief.”
Trump is $421 million in debt. That leaves him open to political and foreign manipulation, and means that if re-elected, he could spend his term cheating more systems, currying more favors, and manipulating his executive power to stay afloat—at the expense of the American people.
