Jumpin’ ju-ju bones, George Orwell was either a time-traveler or he just had incredible prescience. We are all subversives and counter-revolutionaries now!
Facebook users are reporting today that warnings and alerts are showing up on their feeds notifying them they may have been “exposed to extremist content.” The alerts provide users the option to “Get Support” from some entity that will assist them in deprogramming the unauthorized thoughts that may have followed exposure.
It is easy to see where this ideological control mechanism is going. Big Tech doesn’t want comrade citizens exposed to thoughts and opinions that might run counter to the approved worldview of the totalitarian state. It’s actually quite remarkable to see this so publicly pushed, and see them so open about it.
Obviously a visit to the wrong website (your internet travel obviously being tracked by the command and control authorities) will likely trigger the warning. Visit The Conservative Tree House and receive a warning upon exit “you have been exposed to harmful extremist content”.
I think back to that scene in 2001 A Space Odyssey when Dave Bowman is trying to stop the computer system HAL-9000 (artificial intelligence) from controlling his behavior, control his spacecraft, and ultimately killing him: “Dave, I’m afraid I can’t let you do that”…
Yikes, this approach from Big Tech is creepy as hell.
On the positive side of this, the effort is resoundingly going to backfire amid a larger segment of the younger population, they are already using subversive accounts like Fleebook, Flinsta and Fleet to avoid detection amid their online activity. The rebel alliance will only become more slippery and more focused on the need to approach everything with the insurgency mindset.
Regardless of how much Big Tech, Big Intel and Big Government synergize in their efforts to control human behavior, the Rebel Alliance ultimately wins every long-term contest. History proves this to be true. The need for freedom is still an inherent and underlying human condition amid the majority.
As Mike Vanderboegh said so eloquently: “We will not go gently into that bloody collectivist good night. Indeed, we will make with our defiance such a sound as ALL history from that day forward will be forced to note, even if they despise us in the writing of it. And when we are gone, the scattered, free survivors hiding in the ruins of our once-great republic will sing of our deeds in forbidden songs, tending the flickering flame of individual liberty until it bursts forth again, as it must, generations later.”
