Laughing at our fren Elon and the Psyop spectacle of "The Twitter Files."
Great article and eye opening. I was just thinking how great the Twitter Files are to read, but now feel foolish. Of course, I can’t tweet because I was permanently suspended for the audacity of having free speech that went against their ‘rules.’
Fuuuuuuuiccccckkkkkkking good article TGC. You're working on a book? Nice.
I’m thankful for the Professor. In a way, he taught me much even though I didn’t attend one class. He pushed you to be here and I learn all the time from you. God bless, TGC♥️
100% I don't ever care what it looks like from the outside. The only thing I do know for sure is that nothing happens without permission. People think these are "wins" but real wins are not allowed. Threats against the real monster are not allowed. There are only fake wins to soothe the masses when things start to get just a bit too edgy.
Honestly, the whole Twitter buy out--especially knowing of the intelligence infiltration, seems utterly ridiculous.
You made great observations regarding the use of language and the subtlety of movement.
"Did anyone really not know Twitter was working directly with the federal government in the same way YouTube, Facebook, Google, Amazon, and every major media and tech company has for decades?"
LOL yes, 99% of the public.
Oh...forgive my lack of sophistication (I shit in an outhouse after all!) but I sometimes find myself wondering what Kurt Vonnegut would be thinking of all this shitfuckery and wasted human metabolism had he not smoked himself to death.
"So, in the interests of survival, they trained themselves to be agreeing machines instead of thinking machines. All their minds had to do was to discover what other people were thinking, and then they thought that, too."
― Kurt Vonnegut, “Breakfast of Champions” (1973).
I'm off to play with the fucking dog now if you don't mind.
Happy New (Normal) Year GC!
The Coup is complete.
Now we just have to wait for the jack-boots to show up on the doorsteps of the dissenters.
I am glad I am old.
Depressing but much needed reality ✅
Decidedly less depressing than spending your last days like Kirstie Alley, however.
As The Band sang, "Life is a Carnival, believe it or not. Life is a carnival, two bits a shot."
Except if you're Elon. Then it's 44B.
"People have known this [that Twitter blocks wrong-think] for years and still choose to devote the two most valuable human commodities to diddling in the Twitter Carnival—time and attention."
See what happens when you decide to apply your time and attention to something worthwhile. The key is to **pay attention** during the task.
Wow, a lot to ponder. I like it. And I thought I was cynical. You are the man, GC!
GC, nobody says it better!
Great post! And now Elon wants to buy Substack
'The only thing absolute about our fren Elon is that he’s absolutely not who or what he wants us to believe.'
I beg to differ. Their plan is out in the open. They're confidently showing who they are and what their plans are. Just look at his twit pic, he's a disciple of Satan. He's no different than the guy that you do business with upon him first meeting your girlfriend, where he tells you how lucky you are to have such a beautiful, intelligent lady all the while he's rubbing her ass. It's fk'n really hard to get to the truth eh?
Great writing man.
“But (he) has to be real, or (he) wouldn’t look so fake.”
Way to ram it home, you wooly pecker!
You are doing a great job informing us out here.... Glad that you are aware of LifeLog, most people are not and don't understand why one would not be on Farcebook...
Prior to Al Gore inventing the Internet, when it was ARPA companies, we did trace routes of two well known companies that were line of sight a quarter mile apart in Silicon Valley. (Now blocked by Google campus.) All the packets were going through Virginia. So Ed Snowden was showing crystalized stuff that had been going on since the 80s. "They" have been collecting for a long long time.
And we were using email using a program called Wheel back in the 70s, as well as probably a bunch of other means to communicate. Then there were private protocols in 80s and RFCed to standardization which is what is used now by real people not some teenage kid in a summer job.
