“Musk has long advocated a libertarian vision of an ‘uncontrolled’ internet. That’s also the dream of every dictator, strongman and demagogue.”

Okey Dokey…
Well someone has read Orwell’s 1984 and is using it as a manual, because we all know what tyrannical regimes like the USSR, ChiComs, North Koreans etc are all famous for - it’s the sweet, unfettered, free flow of information.

I bet his take on Gates buying MySpace is a tad different.

Reich loves CONTROL and regulation. Ironically, the Internet was a Defense project to facilitate communications in the event of a nuclear war. Then the hippies got behind it and it was free and open. The hippies fought for openness and free expression. Then the hippies (the Left) didn’t like certain people having free speech and expression and now they want to reel it in.

Is that little dwarf still around? The argument is based on the belief by elitist lefties that the 1st Amendment to the Constitution doesn't apply because the vast mob of American citizens aren't as qualified to judge the quality of information as certain unappointed or elected (liberal) judges.

Control the information that is spread then you control the people and what they are knowledgeable about…

Musk is dangerous seeing he want society to know as much as they can and that can never be allowed!

Pitting Musk against Reich, I am afraid, IMO, is a false dichotomy.

". . . Deplorables voted for more, not less, sovereignty. But bien-pensant Elon Musk of the Tesla and SpaceX fame is having none of this sovereignty stuff.

Musk, worth $15.2 billion, is muscling the Trump administration to further tax Americans so as to fund the Europeans and their polluting cosignatories to the climate accord.

Mr. Musk trashes the environment with his "Commie Cars," electrical cars which discharge into the environment lead, cadmium and nickel—the byproducts of batteries—and whose impact on the environment has been shown to be worse than that of the gasoline-powered car.

Trashing the popular will is all in a day's work for the corporate arm of the Deep State."


Counterinsurgency, PSYOPS and the Military Origins of the Internet​

Dustin Broadbery​


". . . In an ironic twist of fate, the intelligence state created at the end of world war II, under the National Security Act, conceived the very corporations that would bring about the end of constitutional democracy, that would author a new bill of rights from their own community standards de jour, and that would shift us from sovereign nation states to global governance, into the collectivist future the Pentagon had been charged with protecting us from.
Nowadays, it doesn’t matter if you’re in the dusty slew of a Calcutta slum or enjoying pristine views over Central Park, everyone is subject to the same scrutiny and surveillance, policed by the same community standards, manipulated by same algorithms, and indexed by the same intelligence agencies. No matter where you are, Silicon Valley is limiting what information you can see, share, communicate and learn from online. They are raising your kids, shaping your worldview and in the wake of COVID-19 and climate change, they have assumed the role of science administrator.

Founded on the principles of freedom of expression and heralded as a liberating new frontier for humanity, the internet has criminalised free speech, divorced is from our nature and ensnared us under a dragnet of surveillance.

But above all else, cyberspace has bought into existence a substructure of reality that is cannibalising the five-sensory world, while forcing humanity to embark on the greatest exodus in human history, from the tangible world to the digital nexus, from our real lives to the metaverse.
As Goethe quote goes ‘None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.’ Namely, anyone still looking through rose-tinted lens at the digital age, oblivious to the fact they are victims of systematic addiction. The bread and circuses of the internet influences the same dopamine rewards centres and neural circuitry motivators as slot machines, cigarettes, and cocaine, as was originally intended by psychologists like JCR Licklider, at the helm of this new technology that would exploit basic vulnerabilities in the human psyche.

And as we descend further into the maelstrom of the digital age, the algorithms will get smarter, the psychological drivers will become more persuasive and digital rubric will become more real. Until eventually we will lose touch with reality altogether.

But don’t worry, this war of attrition is happening in conjunction with the roll out of new software and devices, and most will be too busy building their digital avatars or dissenting on social media to know any better."

A libertarian's webside would be like that of a dictator. :cuckoo: Makes my bitch-slap hand itch.

Reich is a total donkey.

Musk now faces no limit on how much of Twitter’s stock he can buy. He’ll buy as much as he needs to gain total control

That's outrageous!!!!

Only rich liberals should be allowed to have total control, eh comrade?

Robert Reich.......never heard of him before this thread.

Read the article. He's just another Democrat gimp that has his mouth firmly sewn onto the DNC's collective asshole, gobbling up their shit like a starving dog, and passing it off as "truth".

Wow. Just when you think the DNC and their lackeys, gimps, and stooges just CANNOT possibly top themselves...........they do!!!
