WHY THE FREE INTERNET IS DYING FAST!!!

When the internet started out there was optimal freedom and it seems that you could even call it the days of the Wild Wild West. It seemed that anyone could join, create a website, and get lots of free information from it such as pictures, music, videos, and articles. Plagiarism was rampant and intellectual property was stolen on a regular basis.

Then the shit hit the fan and immoral behavior soon lead to unscrupulous malicious humans or hackers and bots infecting computers with malware, viruses, Trojans, pop up ads, and phishing scams. Today online scams continue along with an abundance of fake information, fake news, and much abusive language. Hackers invade business and government websites and get much customer information such as passwords, social security numbers, bank account numbers, and other relatively private information.

To try to exclude online criminals from stealing your information there are attempts at verifying valid users and using sophisticated encryption techniques to safeguard your information. Big tech is trying to censor the information that is available to you and doing so with algorithms which try to censor out “disreputable” users, websites, and those with radical or conservative political views.

Unfortunately computer algorithms are not good at censoring satire and comedy routines so many users are censored for no good reason whatsoever and there is often no ability to appeal the censorship and get your grievances redressed.

Money is the bottom line and many websites are now charging customers to use them or post articles. Information too is being sold and not given as freely. Marketing your information is becoming mission impossible unless you have a huge advertising budget. So the internet is favoring the rich and powerful organizations and if you are a creative individual composing useful information to publish, the chances are minimal that you will quickly get a boatload of interested followers or customers on the internet.

The internet is imprisoning individuals into small groups of mostly humans that you know and if you want to reach a wider audience then the odds are stacked against you. The rich and famous can get their message across but if you are a nobody starting off, you will probably not succeed in promoting your message to an audience larger than your immediate group of friends.

The truth is that to have a smoothly functioning internet you really have to admit moral humans and try to exclude the immoral or criminal types and no computer algorithm is capable of doing so reliably. The situation is so bad and distrust so great that information is no longer being shared across websites such as wordpress.com, minds.com, Facebook, and Reddit to some extent. Private website information seldom flows freely to other websites and search engines such as Google in the encrypted mode no longer post images originating from your private website.

It seems that Google no longer wants to trust you and your information if you are not rich and powerful. Major websites try to deplatform you if you are considered too controversial. If you are a website promoting free speech and expression then big money transfer organizations such as Paypal etc. will censor you and stop serving you. If you are rich and powerful then you get to the front of the line. If you have little money then it is almost guaranteed that you will be censored or discriminated against.

In principle the internet information that you get should be reliable and trustworthy. In reality that means that what you often get is fake news from rich establishment organizations and advertisements from rich companies with money clout. The internet is very poor at separating fact from fiction so just censorship with fair treatment for all is simply out of the question, especially if bots are doing the censorship.

An open source internet is quickly becoming a closed internet for the rich and powerful who are feeding you their propaganda whether you like it or not. A tyrannical internet is becoming a reality and not so much because of free speech running amok but because of fake speech and fake information trying to break into every nook and cranny of the internet. Will you be able to someday trust internet information? Not as long as internet bots do the censoring and the rich and powerful are given preferential treatment.

Solution? Patronize the websites which you consider trustworthy with your money and stay away from websites which try to screw you out of money or try to deceptively get your private information, as best you can.

GUTTER POLITICS AND THE GLOBALISTS ARE LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK!!!

It is no surprise that once the establishment media became the tabloid press almost all political discourse has become unprincipled gutter politics and not worthy of much attention. Fortunately there are alternate media sites which take much smart research. Unfortunately the days of investigative reporting and weeding out corruption is on the way out due to excessive cost and media shrinkage. Who will do the investigative reporting of the future? Probably only the well connected with an ax to grind for personal benefit.

That being said the globalists have merrily gone on to consolidate their international monetary dominance and are more powerful than ever. The more chaos in the world that there is the more there is the probability of making money from the chaos via the international banking system and international corporations. Unsolved is the Chinese, Russian,  North Korean, Iranian, and other tyrant threats worldwide as the military industrial complex goes merrily about making money from munitions and defense systems. Nuclear proliferation is just another excuse to spur the development of new and better defensive systems and keep many nations on edge thinking that they too may have to be next at going nuclear for defensive reasons.

Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple, etc. started in the United States but are now international global companies basically interested in the bottom line or profit internationally. United States morality and politics is no longer the overriding concern but global politics is definitely being catered to. National censorship primarily based on money is becoming standard procedure and many nations are beginning to imitate Chinese censorship principles.

If you have the money then you can probably travel to any country other than North Korea. The world is in secure rich hands and the globalists are laughing all the way to the bank as ordinary citizens in most of the world are living from paycheck to paycheck and hope with a lot of fear that their personal lives don’t crash and burn if a personal emergency befalls them. Globalist ideology must and will survive and it is not within the power of the average individual to do anything about this dire situation.

Historically the United States was the moral and political backbone of the world but unfortunately like all national empires it has morally and politically decayed rapidly and will not be the moral and political backbone for the future world.

The internet was fun while anyone could join at minimal expense. Due to fake news and fake information trust is becoming the overall consideration and Google is even considering the elimination of IP addresses. There goes my free website uldissprogis.com and possibly my freedom to roam the internet at will, collect information cheaply, and publish with one click. How long this enjoyed freedom will last is debatable but I have enjoyed every moment of it and hope that my internet freedom will last about 20 more years.

Ha! I doubt this. Google already has an encrypted format which censors my wildlife picture quotes on the internet. Yes. Internet life is beginning to suck a lot for me and I think that it will get a lot worse in the near future. Will I trust an almost trillion dollar company to do my internet censoring? Hell no! I will go elsewhere if that is still a possibility and Google will lose my patronage even more.

DO WE NEED FREE SPEECH OR MORAL FREE SPEECH?

The constitution of the United States guarantees free speech but the reality is that in the extremes of free speech you have profanity, insults, name calling, put downs, humiliation, ridicule, lies, appeals to violence and fundamentally libelous and slanderous remarks. The expression of free speech has become too chaotic and undisciplined and frankly immoral in the form of fake information and news or in effect published lies or untruths.

 

In the early days of the republic most had a moral training from religion and the educational system. Most published writers and readers of the articles and books where relatively literate compared to the rest of the population and had a sense of what right and wrong was as far as communication was concerned. Today with an anything goes philosophy as far as free speech is concerned, free speech is now getting out of control to the detriment of the fabric of civil discourse publically and privately.

 

The leaders of tomorrow are no longer getting good moral training in the educational system. Instead there is primarily an emphasis on ideological purity or politically correct thinking and the ultimate result is and will be immoral leaders and followers and oppressive censorship of the internet or a tyranny of the mind and also body. Who can you trust if the leadership no longer has integrity and can’t serve as moral role models for the led? Yes, lying information and news must be censored but the leadership must also censor itself and expunge corrupt lying, stealing, deceptive leaders and humans from their ranks. Whether it is possible to create a moral leadership from a corrupt immoral one without a moral revival in the nation is debatable.

 

I am still optimistic about the future and have written extensively on a secular moral code which should be taught to all impressionable minds worldwide and have proposed educational reforms, welfare reforms, and constitutional reforms. I also have composed a logical English dictionary which should greatly reduce human emotional irrationality in the world. I am pessimistic about the destruction of biodiversity which is vital for future generations but fortunately I won’t live long enough to experience the radical extinctions which I foresee.

 

The globalists don’t really care what happens to any one nation and will rule the world with their financial clout no matter how much any individual nations will suffer. That said every future aspiring globalist should read my books and articles since I too am philosophically a globalist interested in improving humanity and conserving and even expanding wilderness real estate.

WHAT AND WHO SHOULD BE CENSORED???

Even those who believe in pure freedom of speech will usually agree that libel and slanderous statements against private individuals should be censored and subject to legal enforcement for violations. No one should be in the business of destroying the good reputation of moral law abiding citizens.

Libelous and slanderous statements or lies against public officials and celebrities are deplorable, especially if they come from the establishment media. Even in public media the anything goes philosophy does not seem appropriate and some censorship is necessary. If the speech is moral then there should be no censorship of it. But who is going to define what moral free speech is and who can be trusted to enforce it?

Censorship by the powerful and monied class is especially corrosive when there is immorality in the leadership of entertainment, business, and political institutions. Powerful celebrities sometimes do practice sexual abuse and sometimes gender exploitation because they think they will get away with the behavior and whistleblowers are often ruthlessly financially destroyed or blacklisted for trying to divulge the corruption.

Criminal and fraudulent behavior and scams, child pornography, incitements to violently overthrow the government, terrorist recruiting, death threats on the internet, exposure of minors to very deviant violent sexual behavior or pornography, and trying to ruin the good reputation of an individual in the media with unproven libelous and slanderous videos are the major areas which definitely need censorship.

The internet and phone lines have been free for so long that criminals and scam artists are rampant and the security of phone lines is in jeopardy with “scam possible” messages on phone lines that don’t seem to go away. It actually is beginning to seem that scam artists are so powerful that freedom from them or exclusion of them from your home is becoming a losing battle.

I am not convinced that “hate” speech should be censored since there are so many things which humans can hate. There are individuals, ethnic groups, nations, criminal or immoral behavior, and illegal substances which some humans hate with a passion. Should this hate speech be censored too, and if so, to what degree? The borderline between “I don’t like a lot” and “I hate” is sometimes very broad and it is almost impossible to discriminate verbally between the two.

Who will censor this? Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter, etc. will have to do this and yes, many may be unjustly censored, especially deviant political ideas and extremes, but the deviant ones should be able to go to other less well known websites and spew their radical views there. When the deviant websites begin to reach a much broader audience then they will have to censor their own websites too or their reputation will remain in the toilet.

Ultimately it is the youth of a nation which needs censorship from criminal, immoral, and deceptive practices. If the internet is going to be the primary source of information and entertainment then the internet will have to be censored as a public utility by someone. China is already censoring the internet to a large extent and I believe it is just a matter of time before the United States also is going to have to begin censoring the internet in a much more aggressive style than at present. Perhaps the real solution is to create an internet for minors with optimal censorship and an internet for adults with minimum censorship.

The only certain thing is that big money will continue to play a dominant role in censorship procedures and will try to make sure that their information will be prominently displayed before the public. Who will counteract the power of big money on the internet? Few to date are fulfilling that important role of monitoring the censorship of big money and making sure that small reputable businesses have a fair playing field on the internet.

I personally bemoan the fact that I can no longer easily get quality pictures and videos to share on my blog website. There are fewer and fewer websites which offer basic trustworthy online picture editing or resizing for free. Yes, plagiarism and theft of intellectual property was rampant in the old internet but the new internet is becoming a world where minority views and efforts are easily suppressed by big money and censoring search engine algorithms.

How much will the internet be censored in the future? It is hard to predict how intense the censorship will be other than the fact that there will be more of it. The little internet user will be more oppressed than ever and it will be almost impossible trying to make some money with videos and written content unless you are a celebrity to begin with.

Criminal and immoral activity on the internet must be minimized and fake news and fake facts should be policed to some extent. Trust in a website means that the website has a good reputation and we should never reach a point where no website on the internet can be trusted anymore, since society will disintegrate into dangerous chaos and instability.

Sexual promiscuity and some drug use rampantly promoted in the entertainment media is devastating the stability of family life and harmonious male female relationships. The credibility of establishment media is being assaulted with some success and they no longer have a sterling reputation. It seems that alternate media is the wave of the future since mainstream media is fast losing its credibility and with it moral trusting consumers.

How the internet will look in ten years is debatable but we can definitely look forward to more censorship and more breaches of security by unscrupulous hackers. In the meantime, try to enjoy the treacherous tumultuous ride!

ONE WAY OLD COMMUNITY SITES ARE DESTROYED OR CENSORED ON GOOGLE+!!!

One way Google destroys or censors old controversial or undesirable community sites is to flood it with pornographic posts thus making users abandon it in droves. I have fled from communities like this in the past and the most recent one is the Thinkers community which probably has too many anti Semitic posts and other controversial posts.

I never approve of many of the controversial postings but what was once a somewhat thought provoking site as a whole is now dying fast and so is the freedom of moral speech or the freedom to view controversial topics as a whole without pornographic crap.

IS THIS AN EXAMPLE OF AMAZON CENSORSHIP???

I tried to access and possibly buy from Amazon

Nazis, Commies, And Terrorists: How western society has become what it fought, and how to fix this problem

Jan 1, 2015

and found out that it is not currently available anymore. Tarl Warwick is a self proclaimed unique Libertarian type who does not publish hate speech nor any really radical views attempting the overthrow of governments through violent means so he is no terrorist by any stretch of the imagination.
What peaked my interest in this book was the statement “and how to fix this problem”. I read all political viewpoints and formulate my own opinion based on what I find most truthful about the ideas advocated by conservative and liberal spokesmen. Tarl Warwick is loosely somewhat a Libertarian conservative and not a far right Nazi but you really can’t pigeon hole or stereotype him into a political box. He speaks very lucidly on many political issues and what he offers is mildly intellectually stimulating.
As a youth I also was very interested in Libertarian ideas and the older I got I also got a little wiser I realized that pure Libertarianism is unworkable and formulated my own political philosophy called CapSocialism. Nevertheless I sense that Amazon may be trying to politically censor “politically incorrect thinking” or more accurately minority political opinion.
To date I have not investigated Tarl’s YouTube video presence enough to form any permanent conclusions about him but I offer you three examples which I enjoyed to some extent, perhaps because of the novelty of it. One is a conversation between Tarl and Stephan Molyneux on Globalism.
Here’s Tarl’s views on the far left and far right.
One caveat, I strongly don’t support Tarl’s view on drugs but many of his other views are a good antidote to a young human indoctrinated by the establishment left. If you are a big government liberal then you can get some balance in your views by listening to Tarl and rethinking through your ideological views or beliefs.
And here is a video of Tarl’s views on traditionalism.
