do you ever get the feeling...

...that we're proper fucked?

currently, the google nudes "fact check" is currently all:

Fact check

* Does Pfizer's COVID-19 Vaccine Contain Aborted
Fetal Cells?

* Covid-19 vaccination does not make MRI scans

* Few religions ban vaccination, but that counts
little for religious exemptions

* Fox News host Will Cain falsely claims vaccine
more dangerous for children than COVID-19

my brain translates:

1. religious scare tactics
2. sheer scientific ignorance
3. guidance on how to use religion to make an

4. a certain news network deciding that, no, it
has not done enough damage yet

we are in the first couple of chapters of corporate
neo-feudalism - the fervently anti-union Amazon are making
plans for victorian-era company towns where they get to
exercise even more control on their workers and their
families; there are plans for digital currency that has
negative interest rates, meaning if you don't spend
spend spend your money will depreciate.

But there's always someone online to hate, and there will
always be enough peasants to suck the cocks of billionaires
to make sure they'll get their way. We live in Hell.

reminds me of how the best way to spread a rumour is by
constantly denying it. i dont feel i understand when media
are deliberately abused, exceptions made, but i know that
feeling to get a different vibe as to what the headline
proclaims. its weird and the same headline can be regarded
differently in the local context of a culture or person.

the news are a bit different than i thought though. i
thought the anchors are merely the messenger reading their
text provided, but i saw how those very people are studied
journalists. they rely heavily on the few news agencies
however and some times i had the same stories in marginally
different texts in the evening news on different channels.
but i still feel there is a chain of intelligent people
providing lots of information which is then condensed by
those people who you see on tv in germany.

in the local news its even more up to the anchors. my gf was
on telly yesterday in the local news being asked about the
digitilization of our city´s departments on the street. she
said the person who interviewed her was also the
anchorman/host of the show. and i guess its likely he also
directed the whole coverage of this. it was a decent
coverage explaining how the agency´s in my town still work
in a postal or personal way, while our neighbour lets the
people send applications over the net saving time and money.
people dont have to take a day off to sit and wait for shit.

thats precisely the nightmare i saw in documentaries.
i believe it can be avoided. but certainly in many
communities it is bound to happen as it already has.

i wonder if anything like an uproar would rise in any of
those communities that have been fuckend over legally.
thinking of an angry mob just burning down the place.

violent outbreaks seem on the rise.
even more sadly mostly by idiots.

journalists and talk hosts currently debate and lament about
having to give corrective topics a stage. its annoying them
and they are aware the rumor will be spread and general
distrust will be sown.

i think its not healthy or clever to constantly guess how
other people interprete headlines/news. or distrust any
news. imo there lies a huge amount of paranoia in doing that
per se. one time i got linked to alex jones and i instantly
thought he was a lunatic as in the movie fletchers theories.
i know from personal experience about mechanisms of paranoia
and from a logical standpoint i would say that if there was
that amount of deliberate desinformation then there ought to
be a huge number of witnesses. did i really have to type
that down or is this considered common sense to all?

you're probably referring to the streisand effect but it does seem
to fit for complete lies, in addition to inconvenient

there's a news article all over google recently, something
like, "facebook banned me for life because i tried to help
people use it less," and i thought: facebook rather
streisanded itself there

didnt know there was a word for it, but it describes what i
meant. the concept of this predates the streisand photo by
at least 30 year though.
for example douglas adams wrote about it in the first of his
dirk gently novels in 1987 and it´s likely he wasnt the
first to notice. i love the way he described it though. he
wrote how how dirk was falsely accused of being able to see
the future because he did perfectly predict the contents of
a test at school/uni and how he in a quirk henceforth
benefited from it keeping on denying his secret powers. he
really doesnt have any special powers. people who watched
the show have been wondering, but his approach to finding
the truth as a detective in the novels is just out of the
box thinking and rather include the use of oracles/random
behaviour to let the subconscious guide and can imo be
better compared to the methods of twin peak´s successful
detective cooper. but thats a whole different topic.

bottomline: the effect is quite strong and is likely being
used occasionally by people to play the media like a violin.

Nah. It’s most probably an ancient inherited trait. Today
it’s COVID or whatever, a while back it was the sky
falling on our heads. Your clan getting ambushed, an
asteroid. That pesky wolf.
