    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: Indian Government Arrests Critics 

    I just read an article from The Guardian about the Indian government arresting dozens of journalists who exposed the government’s failed response to the pandemic.

    I think I’d mentioned previously that the Indian government was in no way capable of handling the pandemic.

    The Indian government is a cesspool of greedy, power-hungry, control-freak, corrupt egomaniacs.

    The Indian government doesn’t care about it’s people. It only cares about it’s image.
    And this ideology is led by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This guy will say and do anything to look good in front of the cameras. And when the people behind those cameras don’t paint him in good light, he terrorizes them.

    What are the current stats of Covid-19 in India? Let’s look it up.
    I’ll look it up now; you can look it up from the future. Either way, the results will be pretty horrifying.

    So the world just crossed 18M cases.
    And India just crossed 1.8M cases.
    Interesting numbers!

    India’s just behind Brazil and the US. So the only people presumably worse than Narendra Modi are Jair Bolsonaro and Donald Trump. That is, if we were to blame the pandemic on the leadership.

    Now why’s the Indian government arresting journalists?
    How bad is the pandemic in this densely populated hellhole?

    There aren’t enough tests to go around in India. The hospitals are throwing out everyone except the rich and the seriously ill patients. There aren’t enough medical workers to attend to Covid-19 patients. Many of them are exhausted and slacking at work because they are being forced to do their jobs.

    The government workers stopped disinfecting the streets after a few gimmick shows for the media. People have been forced to go back to work because the Indian government would rather genocide 300M Indians in a single stroke than provide something like Universal Basic Income.

    Corruption is at an all-time high in India. Government employees are making the best of the pandemic by exploiting the citizens for bribes in exchange for services.
    Does Narendra Modi know this is happening? Because if I do, and he doesn’t, then he should resign immediately. He has no business leading the nation when he has no idea how his government is screwing the citizens in the midst of the pandemic.

    There are a lot of blind Modi followers in India. And this pandemic will be an eye-opener for them, as they either die, lose their loved ones, or get screwed by Modi’s government in some way.

    Isn’t it a shame that your average Indian citizen would rather gag on Modi’s ding than admit Modi’s failures?

    Well, there are 298M more cases to consider. The pandemic will keep spreading and people will keep suffering. Unless the government crooks are included in those numbers, it would be hard to justify them without remorse.
    So, when is Modi getting infected with Covid-19?
