HOW THE INTERNET IS CHANGING OUR LIVES!!!

When the internet began it was the days of the wild wild west where you could get all kinds of information for free which included books, music, movies, pictures, news, and blogs. You could comment almost anywhere and prowl the internet with fake ID’s and fake names. With the passage of time viruses, malware, Trojans, scams, spam, and bots started to take up more and more of the internet which has a flawed technology to begin with and no realistic foolproof vetting process.

Scam artists trying to make a quick buck invaded websites with self promoting info and promises of instant wealth. This quickly degraded the websites and caused a lot of dissatisfaction among the idealistic righteous few who erroneously thought that free participation would not lead to an overabundance of web human parasites out to make a quick buck.

In a period of about 7 years starting in 2012 my blog site has had over a million and a half spam comments that Askimet protected me against. Anonymity was another major reason why trust in the internet has reached an all time low with pretentious humans and pretentious ripoff scams.

Along with this chaos cell phones with apps began to make their mark as more information was packaged into brief soundbites, captivating images, and inescapable ads. The computer screen with a nice keyboard was being replaced by a mini screen with fingertip touch composing of messages and images.

Isolating customers from the worldwide web with easy access was done with cell phones with more and more internet companies limiting your potential experiences to selected apps and interests designed to appeal to your political persuasion and your topical interests. The cellphone was an information trap which most ventured into and limited your ability to choose new and better interests as you progressed through life. Siri and Alexa are just a few examples of big corporations filtering acceptable answers to questions posed by the public and putting blinders on to any divergent views or answers.

Today there are serious privacy issues and an emphasis on trustworthy websites. Censorship by social media and search engines is beginning to dominate and independent voices are gradually being suppressed. Much information now is no longer free and you are beginning to have to pay for almost any privilege on the internet such as publishing your articles on a website and viewing the published articles of others.

Only secure websites are being promoted and those are usually the ones making the most profit for themselves and the internet providers. Freedom of choice is drastically being limited and if you are a startup internet company then the chances that you will rapidly grow with millions of interested customers is highly improbable because you are a low human or enterprise on the priority list of most search engines.

Big money with profit as the primary focus is censoring all competitors who have minimal money for promotion purposes. Established companies are making a killing and competitors with a decent following are quickly bought up to avoid competition. If you are working on a shoestring budget with a novel and interesting new idea or business then chances are great that you will get minimal internet exposure with little growth opportunities.

The internet in its primal state was very democratic with potential worldwide exposure. Now the internet is mostly owned by big money interests and is rapidly decreasing in creativity and relevance to the creative community which is struggling to grow beyond a handful of loyal friends and supporters.

Relatively cheap and free information is quickly being changed into paid information and almost every website is trying to fund itself to keep alive and have some dubious presence on the money hungry internet.

The biggest tragedy is that monopolistic international information companies are beginning to censor minority political opinion in the name of an international globalist left wing ideology. Economic prosperity for the middle class is rapidly declining and most western nations are being threatened with a realistic third world status with a few rich at the top and the majority living at close to poverty level. It’s beginning to look a lot like a tyrannical ideological socialist or communist elite at the top and the rest mostly working slaves with minimal rights trying to stay economically afloat.

Yes, there are currently some populist rumblings against the globalist trend but I personally believe that the globalists with their great wealth will eventually triumph in the end and maintain their global world order based on money and a tyrannical ideology which will suppress most dissenters helped with a monopoly on media propaganda.

Maybe it is time to start a new internet where all the users are vetted as having good honest reputations with validated encrypted personal information. Good trustworthy websites with information from reputable vetted sources with no political ax to grind. Sounds like an impossible task but maybe someday such an internet will emerge. In an era of fake news, fake information, and fake reviews I think it is high time to try and reverse this unacceptable trend and enter an era of truthful news, truthful information, truthful reviews, and no ads unless you ask for them.

WHAT WILL PROBABLY COME AFTER THE ESTABLISHMENT TABLOID LIKE PRESS?

 

The historical tabloid press was and still is a sensationalized form of current events information replete with seemingly unbelievable statements, events, and deceptive pronouncements designed to impulsively promote a buying gullible customer who wants their emotions titillated.

Today the establishment media is following in the footsteps of the tabloids and becoming more sensational and raunchier by the month. Investigative reporting and a factual reporting of current events is becoming a dying art and is being largely replaced by blatant biased opinions and editorials often accented with insults, put downs, name calling, humiliation, and ridicule of humans with opposing opinions.

Brief sometimes shocking sound bites and talking heads repeating their communal ideology is dominant in the mass media today and their listeners and viewers are decreasing in number as each human retreats into their isolated social media, cellphone world.

How long will this form of unprincipled malicious verbal combat and censorship be tolerated? Since news is increasingly a popularity contest with viewer statistics having a dominant influence, the answer is that abusive verbal combat will last as long as the public does not become bored stiff with the crappy repetitious disinformation or propaganda being published and broadcast.

The masses have always been partial to comforting lies rather than the truth so hoping that comforting lies will diminish in the future is highly unlikely. It seems that the artificial intelligence bots are becoming more intelligent than even human debaters so I see salvation in censorship by media software bots who will eventually tell humans what to say and eventually what to think.

Of course the humans in control of these bots will ultimately determine the  information inputted into the information processing system so some form of censoring ideology will have to exist and it will be human determined to some extent. If you input trashy information into a software program then your output will also be trashy information so some reliable human or computer algorithm is necessary to exclude the unreliable garbage information from being inputted.

To regain and maintain some degree of trust in the reporting of news, important questions to ask and answer are- How factual is the information? How trustworthy is the author or source of the information? Has the trustworthiness lasted many years? What is the goal of the article? What are the reputable sources and information which seems to back up the purpose or goal  of the article or presentation? Will this information be promoted via podcast, video, or written format and where will it appear?

Note: the objective purpose of any communication should be to promote the truth about factual information but the reality is that ideology often plays a dominant role in the communication and reality is often misrepresented to fit a politically correct mold. Effective useful communication means that the facts are truthful and the communicator is trusted as somewhat of an expert in his or her field of expertise.

An alternative media with anti monopolistic information censorship and ideology has arisen and is doing rather well but it will probably never become what used to be the establishment media and widely respected by the average human. Once trust in the establishment media is lost it is almost an impossible task to get it back any time soon.

It takes more aggressive searching to find and use alternative media but thankfully it is still there and surviving if not thriving. As long as someone is permitted to exercise moral free speech on the internet and present opposing views in a civilized manner, I see no great need to panic and believe that all media is just going to become and stay a biased cesspool of censored unprincipled politics, news, and general information.

The European Union is already censoring free alternative media so please support free alternative media with your money because the same fate may befall the United States alternative media in the not too distant future.

Some sense of order will probably arise out of the current chaos so promote with your money all the sources which you feel are as truthful as is reasonably possible.

Bots can also be stupid or malicious and try to trap you in an isolated echo chamber of information which you like rather than also expose you to information which you should know about to be truly informed. Media bots whose main purpose is to make money try to keep you satisfied with the world which you like or agree with so historical brainwashing by bots this time will continue into the foreseeable future.

Artificial intelligence is becoming smarter than the average human so bots will rule the media of the future to a very large extent.
