    Facebook And Twitter’s Trump Ban – Analyzing The Corporate Agenda 

    So Donald Trump’s Twitter account has been suspended.
    Well, that’s what it said when i visited it.

    I’m not on Twitter.
    I rarely check anyone’s Twitter.

    Has Twitter permanently banned Trump’s account?
    This guy is still the President.
    If Twitter can ban his account, then who’s safe?

    There’s a lot of people who share Trump’s political beliefs. Are they going to be banned too? If not, why?

    Three days days ago, Trump’s Facebook was banned.

    I think Facebook has paved the way for corporate social networks to ban anyone who doesn’t follow their political ideologies.

    From an anarchist’s perspective, this is dangerous for everybody.

    I am an advocate for free speech.
    I want to hear my fellow anarchists’ opinions.
    I want to hear what the liberals have got to say.
    And I want to hear what the conservatives have got to say.

    Freedom of speech provides the platform for an open debate.
    If people are silenced, then there is no freedom. Everyone will hide their real thoughts and opinions.
    That’s how you create a mass of brainwashed robot-like citizens, like in China and North Korea.
    Has anyone been to China?
    There are no opposing views in China. It’s just one mass of 1.4B people choking on Xi Jinping’s stinking nuts.
    Is this what America wants?

    Does America wants a population of 332M asleep on Jack Dorsey’s dong?
    Does America want 332M people constantly surveilled and watched by Mark Fuckerberg’s corporate platforms?
    The lobbyists have granted these capitalist corporate conglomerates a massive amount of liberty to dictate people’s lives. And fundamentally, that’s not how it should be.
    Twitter and Facebook aren’t supposed to tell me what to do and what to think.

    A social network should be dictated by it’s base users, not the other way around.
    That’s how the Fediverse was created. People wanted an alternative platform that would replace Twitter. That’s how Gnu Social was born. People wanted something that worked like Facebook, but federated. That’s how Diaspora was born. Nobody on Diaspora tells you what to think and what to say. You can speak your mind. That’s the beauty of it.
    People wanted to write blogs, so there was Plume, and so on.

    How do corporate platforms operate? Facebook and Google push their crappy products on users. Here! Try this! Try that! Use this! Use that!
    I’ve been using YouTube for a long time. It keeps pushing me with stupid banners and ads that cover the entire screen to sign in and use YouTube TV and YouTube Music. I don’t wanna use all that crap!

    They literally force people to use their crappy products. Want to view a Facebook profile? Sign in or Sign up!
    Want to read more than one article on Medium? Register an account!
    As soon as you create an account, they’ll create an advertisement profile for you. They’ll track you and show you stupid crap that they think you wanna see.

    YouTube has had a history of censoring videos related to Covid-19. Facebook has done the same.
    Why are they deleting relevant important information? Why are they forcing the mainstream propaganda on people?

    They ran the Russian interference propaganda for 2 years straight after Trump won.
    They ran the impeachment bullshit for 4 years straight – up until the very last minute! Trump’s almost on his way out yet they still publish articles about impeaching him. What the actual fuck?!

    Try posting a video titled “Chinese Virus” on YouTube. Try posting a video about Li Wenliang, Dr Ai Fen, Chen Quishi, Fang Bin… they’ll be discarded so fast, they’ll never reach a dozen views.
    Try making videos about capitalist corporate surveillance. Your channel will NEVER EVER hit the front page.

    These corporations don’t care about the people. They care about profits.
    Ban Trump on his way out? Profit!

    They think that banning Donald Trump on his way out will make them popular and win over people’s hearts and minds.
    And they might!
    There’s a lot of stupid folks on the planet.

    But what I see is censorship.
    I see a bunch of capitalist corporate crooks playing a game of chess.
    They’re doing what’s best for them – what’s profitable for them.
    They’re creating a monopoly where they’re the overlords and everyone answers to them. But they answer to nobody.
    Anyone remember the Mark’s response to the senators in 2018?
    And there have been multiple hearings since then.

    Anyway, I recommend people to switch to the Fediverse. Stop using capitalist corporate platforms that profit off of your data.
    And don’t go with the herd mentality. Don’t let CNN or Fox Spews tell you what you should think about events. The mainstream media should only deliver the news, not biased opinions.
    Let the viewers form their own opinions.
    Don’t tell me, “Trump said this…” and then proceed to tell me why Trump is wrong.
    I’ll decide whether Trump is wrong or right.
    There is hardly news anymore. News is being replaced with biased opinions. Everyone has their own agenda.

    Covid-19: Social Media Influencers 

    The 2010’s have seen the rise of a new generation of working class known as “Social Media Influencers and Vloggers.”
    These are the people who spend their days posting selfie pics and videos on YouTube, TikTok, Facebook and Instagram.
    Apparently, most of them can make a decent living out of it too.
    Isn’t that just wonderful?
    Now I’m not hating on their profession or lifestyle. I don’t envy them nor do I wish I was them.

    There’s a problem with capitalism. It turns people into a bunch of obnoxious show-offs and self-centered pricks.
    I saw that at my old job. And I’ve seen that on YouTube.
    It just takes a trickle of money to get them dancing on their feet. And after that, the more money you throw at them, the more they’ll be willing to do anything. People will readily sell their souls to the devil if it could get them some money.
    After a while, money becomes the focal point. Everything becomes about the money.
    It’s one of the reasons I haven’t started my own YouTube channel.

    I watch a bunch of YouTubers regularly. Quite often, I will watch them for a while, and then the quality of their content drops as they grow into bigger channels, gain more subscribers and make more money.
    The only channels that I’ve been able to watch regularly without switching are the tech channels. Everyone else just seems to change into capitalist vampires once they grow big.
    And you can see it when they stop uploading videos and only make videos when they have a sponsor. When there is no growth, people become stagnant, and quickly lose interest in their work. After that, it’s just about the money.

    Anyway, a lot of what I’ve said above is irrelevant.

    There’s a bunch of YouTubers I’ve watched, who do not wear masks, frequently go out to “make content” with their friends, and have gotten infected by the Coronavirus.
    They have purposefully neglected social distancing, many of them live with their friends and have thus passed the virus onto them as well.

    I don’t want to name anybody here.

    Do these people have no shame?
    Do they not feel worried about getting infected and passing the virus onto others, who may potentially have low immunity or high risk?

    At what point did the objective goal become about making videos with as many exciting events as possible just to get more viewers and subscribers?
    There’s a pandemic out there; stay home and film yourself going about your boring life, share your thoughts with your viewers about topics interesting to you, and that should be enough for anyone who likes you to keep watching your videos.

    There are so many YouTubers who started out with regular normal videos and then shifted to these clickbait stupid videos going around,filming everyone and everything and trying to make their lives seem magical and full of excitement and adventure.
    You can fool some 15 year old teenager with that load of crap. But the rest of the world knows your life is as boring and pathetic as everyone else. Stop trying to exaggerate how lavish your lifestyle is.

    These are the people who get tested weekly, not because they care, but because they know their reckless lifestyles put them at risk more than anyone else.

    If I lived with my girlfriend and a bunch of friends, I’d be sitting at home, going out only when absolutely necessary, and taking all the precautions to avoid being infected.
    I couldn’t live knowing that I infected someone I loved or people I really liked because of my reckless and foolish actions. But that’s just me. I’m not a social media influencer. And rightfully so.

    Anyway, this has cut out a lot of YouTubers from my watch list. I’m glad I don’t have to waste time watching them. Thankfully I can divert my time to more fruitful activities, like watching flies fvck. I think watching two flies go at it would be more productive than watching another one of these obnoxious social media influencers going around with their stupid cameras spreading the Coronavirus to everyone else.

    I’ll have to make a list of these morons and keep it somewhere.
