    Internet Fatalities: LiveLeak 

    The internet is evolving. And not in a good way.
    There has been a steep rise in adult websites, with a sharp decline in controversial websites.

    Controversial websites have to be preserved in honor of the freedom of speech that was so prevalent in the 80’s up to late 2000’s.

    Adult websites are no longer controversial in today’s era. In fact, they’re considered to be liberating.
    So, one one hand we see a massive rise in pornographic websites promoting incest and various kinks such as fattening/feeding fetish, eating shit(i kid you not), drinking piss and wearing diapers.

    But a website that documents real life events that include gore, racism, accidents, trauma and so on? Nope! Too controversial.

    I’m not promoting controversial websites.
    I’m not demanding the rise of gore websites etc. But, the ones that have existed for more than a decade need to keep going to preserve the legacy of the old internet.

    LiveLeak was a British video sharing website headquartered in London. The site was founded on 31 October 2006, in part by the team behind the Ogrish.com shock site which closed on the same day. LiveLeak aimed to freely host real footage of politics, war, and many other world events and to encourage and foster a culture of citizen journalism.

    Liveleak was one of the few websites on the internet which documented the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic in real time.
    It wasn’t pretty to watch, but it was real. It was happening on the streets, and whilst many governments such as CHINA were censoring the mainstream media, LiveLeak showed it all.

    I downloaded over a hundred videos from LiveLeak at the start of the pandemic.
    This was a historical moment. It was needed to be preserved.
    Of course I got bored after a while and stopped browsing LiveLeak altogether.

    At this point in time, one year later, are there any videos on the internet of the start of the coronavirus epidemic in Wuhan?
    This is history. It needs to be preserved. But I’m pretty sure that by now, China has erased all content of the epidemic from the internet.
    A few years from now, China will have erased itself from the pandemic. India will be considered the epicenter of the pandemic. Or maybe another country. But not China. By the time I grow old enough to be a grandpa, if you go to China and ask the kids at school, “Remember the coronavirus epidemic from Wuhan?” they’ll say, “What epidemic? What pandemic? Those are all conspiracy theories!”

    Seeing is believing. All governments know that. All corporations know that. All the bogus political factions know that. So when you erase all evidence from the internet, those events essentially become nonexistent.

    LiveLeak has been replaced with ItemFix, which “is a site for creativity and fun.”
    In other words, ItemFix is yet another one of those crappy sites that nobody will visit, and will eventually be shut down because they’re useless.
    Splendid!

    Remembering China’s Censorship: Li Wenliang 

    Today marks the first anniversary of he death of Dr Li Wenliang, the Chinese doctor who blew the whistle on Coronavirus.

    I’m looking at the image of him on the news and he was wearing 2 masks!

    Xi Jinping’s government didn’t blink an eye when labelling his death cause as Coronavirus, even though the man appeared to be wearing two masks.

    Let the world remember this day in history as the day that China killed the man who told the truth.

    And let the world mourn the fact that Xi Jinping is still alive, after causing the deaths of so many innocent people.

    Let the world pray that Xi the fat chinese bastard burn in eternal hell, if there is any such thing.
    And I wait for the day someone brave enough pulls a Gaddafi on Xi Jinping.

    Analyzing The Internet Shutdown In Uganda 

    Recently there was an internet shutdown in Uganda during the elections.
    It was a classic tactic to win yet another election by Museveni.

    It’s 2021.
    Why do internet shutdowns influenced by dictators still exist?

    Did you know that people in Uganda must pay a tax in order to access social networks?
    That’s right, ladies and gentlemen.
    They’ve been paying social media taxes since 2018.
    The OTT tax was put in place to tackle olugambo. That’s their excuse for censoring free speech.
    Yoweri Museveni does not like people who gossip on social media. And in a bid to silence them, he decided they must pay taxes to use it.

    In order to ensure that all social media users pay their taxes, the government has to monitor their internet.
    How else would they know if someone’s evading their OTT tax?
    And if they can monitor whether someone’s evading their tax, it’s quite obvious that they can monitor that person’s social media accounts as well.
    And if people said something that Museveni didn’t like, that’d be the end of them.

    Monitoring internet connections for any purpose is never a good idea. It’s a deep dark bottomless pit.

    So you can easily understand how dangerous it is to be an activist in Uganda.

    Hujambo Museveni!
    Uhali gani?
    Uko mzima?
    Mbona unawasumbua wananchi?
    Umeezeeka, sasa ni wakati wakuacha kiti ya rais.
    Unaelewa kiingereza?

    Museveni is a goddamn dictator.
    You hear that, Museveni?
    You’re a goddamn bald headed dictator!

    And now Museveni wants to block all VPN connections and arrest all VPN users.

    This is the current state of internet freedom in Africa.

    You know this is a big deal because every third world shithole country is gearing up to become like North Korea or worse!

    Uganda blocked porn websites in 2018.
    Did you know that? You can’t access xhamster, pornhub or xvideos.
    Now personally I don’t advocate watching porn BUT IN THE INTEREST OF FREE SPEECH, I wouldn’t recommend censoring porn sites either.
    A lot of countries have blocked porn, especially in the East.

    Anyway.
    This is terrible terrible news.
    This morning I read that Iran had blocked Signal.

    With each passing day, our freedoms are slowly being taken away. Most of us hardly notice it until it’s too late.
    Where’s the free open internet that existed in the 90’s?
