    Well, of course we just want people to die! --- Here's the thing. They claim they are making us safer. The definition of "safer" is as subjective as "good". They are offering a temporary decrease to risks from "terrorists" while increasing the risk that individuals will face from EVERY other type of faction that would use the information gathered for less than honorable means. Every single one of those group affiliations will cause harm to other individuals in many various forms, not all of which are physical, but all are done with a clear conscious that they are "doing the right thing". So make people safe by disabling peoples ability to protect themselves from government intrusions into their lives is only a temporary means due to the Turnkey Nature of Surveillance. When you get a political party into office that will have you dead because you are white or brown or the wrong religion or wrong political affiliation, that same Surveillance they used to temporarily "keep you safe" from groups of people the US itself armed and now defines as "enemy" will be used against the American People. Who watches the Watchmen?

    Agreed. I do continue to wonder who the real target is here. The people that threw the shit, or the people that had the shit thrown at them. Im thinking that by normalizing throwing shit, they are trying to tell people something else by reading between the lines: "If you do not support Immigration, then shut the fuck up or you will have shit thrown at you". That is rather worrisome if that is the real objective. Making people afraid to express Political Opinions due to threat of retaliation is a rather dangerous outcome.

    Not really about you changing the labels, but the way it was originally presented. I think it is more about trying to Normalize behaviors of irresponsible people by presenting the information in such a way as to cause a bias. We cant really know who threw the dung, but what is more important is how the information is presented. By changing the Labels, perceptions shift dramatically. Lets try some scenarios. First scenario: the Poo Throwers were Illegal Immigrants. Then the headline would have read "Illegal Immigrants Throw Poo at people for not being Pro Illegal Immigration". How does that change peoples perspective of the situation? Second scenario, the Shit Hurlers are whitey rich college students. Headline would then read "White College Students Hurl Shit at people that are not Pro Immigration". Does the bias alter the perception of the people who are Anti Immigration, or the College Students? Scenario Three: forget the topic of contention. Headline might then read "Shit Thrown at a Business over Political Disagreement". It makes the subject very vague as well as the points of view of both parties. Not interesting enough to be sensational as little is known about either side. Next, as stated, it Normalizes behaviors. A lot of people learn their own behaviors by observing others. In this case, it teaches that Throwing Shit at others when they disagree is normal. I think much like School Shootings, if we desire for less actual shit to be thrown at others over any form of disagreements, then those ideas are not mentioned or given focus. Not much different than watching any episode of Desperate Housewives of where the fuck ever. It normalizes non thinking emotional based intolerable behaviors which can only result in a need for supervision of those who mimic the behaviors they have seen. Thus, in a way it promotes Big Govt to manage everyones behavior by teaching everyone to behave irresponsibly and immaturely when ever they disagree with anyone about anything. Thoughts?

    Shutting down InfoWars may not be the actual goal here, but Free Speech. Regardless of what is shown in the videos, what is being normalized is the assaults on the mental images of people who use Free Speech to expose Lies of the Govt. If the real target was Free Speech itself, they would not attack the popular thing to say. Having control of the narrative can be exploited to change the mental perceptions of people who are not Liberal or Liberal leaning, while simultaneously validating existing perspectives. By attacking InfoWars, they are also attacking the perceptions of everyone else who does not believe their narrative. I must consider that it is very plausible that the real goal is not InfoWars itself, but everyone else by using InfoWars as a scapegoat. Once you convince the people to change their perspective on a given subject, they will openly support change that further restricts freedom. There are Four sides to an argument. There is always a Speaker and there is always a Listener. Another perspective is Agreement opposed by Disagreement. The Four sides are a Matrix by combining those two categories. Listeners can choose to either Agree or Disagree with any given narrative. Speakers will also lean toward expressing ideas they only Agree with, so Speaking your own idea that is Disagreed with rarely ever happens without manipulation. With nearly full control of the Narrative, what youre hearing seems to be universally supportive of one idea, which is Big Govt. What theyve done with the Narrative is to create an Illusion of Choice by saying "support this point of view" or "support that point of view", but both points of view end with the same result, which is Bigger Govt. The way the MSM works is to control "who" is allowed to speak. If an opinion is expressed that supports either Trap of Big Govt, then the opinion is allowed. So its what is not said here, as usual, that is more important. For the majority of Listeners, they hear one side of the argument, which silences their own opinions, and further reinforces the cycle. That leaves the majority of Listeners with a set of arguments that end up supporting one idea. They hear no other perspectives which would support Smaller Govt, which is why the Internet is so important to Freedom. They control the masses by telling people what to think, which means they must not tell people what they do not want people to think at the same time. The latter being MUCH more important than the first. Thus, in order to control the Internet the same way as one way MSM works, every major communication platform must incorporate Self Censorship and exploit Private Property to control that Narrative. The way to control the Narrative on the internet incorporating the previous ideas of silencing specific opinions is to create and support major platforms that choose to Self Censor, or heavily bias the way information is presented to people. I think we all know that Google and Twitter and the likes of the major platforms that reach a broad spectrum of people is very very Left Leaning, while the Right Leaning are only supported if the Narrative is for Big Govt, thus maintaining the Illusion of Choice. The reality is there is no difference between MSMs brand of Left and Right as both sides call for Big Govt, and the ones that are constantly shut down is anyone who supports Smaller / Less Govt.

    What The Hell? Congress Steps In To Shut Down InfoWars InfoWars Link: https://www.infowars.com/what-the-hell-congress-steps-in-to-shut-down-infowars/ Even if you dont like Alex Jones / Infowars, do you think he has a Constitutional Right to exercise Free Speech and Free Press? Is it not more important to protect the Rights of people to express statements we do not agree with rather than only protect expressions that we do agree with? Is it only the "popular" thing to say that deserves the protection of the First Amendment? Alternatively, do you think Alex Jones abuses his Free Speech by yelling Fire in a crowded theater, since its the most common example of what "not" to say? Does Alex Jones bully people? Does he lie? Does he misconstrue the information to distort perception? Whats your take?

    That is what the MSM would have us believe. We need govt to fix everything. What should really happen is Free Market. Charge too much and lose patients. Insurance is nothing short of a legalized scam that has driven health care costs to beyond unaffordable for most people to pay on their own. Without the Insurance, these heath care facilities would have to operate by the Laws of Economics, similar to the Laws of Physics. It would drive down costs to a reasonable rate that people can afford.

    That assumes that poor people wont pay their bills. If the bill was affordable, IE, not $100 bucks for a single aspirin, and $100k for serious medical issues, maybe the people being victimized by the system would be more willing to pay a reasonable bill? So here is what the politicians think. They think to ask "how do we get people to pay the bill" (both insurance and care provided) instead of asking why the costs are so high to begin with. Throw Zero Privacy into the mix and now you have a system that just cannibalizes those who cant afford the system to begin with.

Mods can feel free to edit this post if they can put the video in the quote. --- To usurp or maintain power, you need to create an Enemy that the pubic will always be afraid of. Terrorists, Russians, Freedom, etc. So uh, Boogity Boogity. Same message is the same as always. "You need MSM to tell you what to think of Trump and know who to be afraid of this week." Now, if we look at the "reasons" they say Russia is the "Enemy", namely Election Interference, is the MSM really gonna try to say "it is fine if the US does it to other countries, but not ok if any other countries do it to us"? This is why the MSM has become a dying breed, desperate for ratings by sensationalism and self promotion at the expense of all that you hold true and dear.

    Written by Daniel McAdams - Monday July 16, 2018 Presidents Trump and Putin have just concluded a press conference where although there remained some serious points of contention -- specifically, Iran -- both leaders agreed that their summit was a great start to restoring good relations between the US and Russia. The neocons -- on both the Left and Right -- are furious. Former CIA chief John Brennan called the meeting "treason." What are we to make of the meeting?

    The crime you are being charged with is being Innocent of the charge of being Guilty of the crime of which you are accused. --- John Adams once said: “It is more important that innocence be protected than it is that guilt be punished, for guilt and crimes are so frequent in this world that they cannot all be punished. But if innocence itself is brought to the bar and condemned, perhaps to die, then the citizen will say, ‘whether I do good or whether I do evil is immaterial, for innocence itself is no protection,’ and if such an idea as that were to take hold in the mind of the citizen that would be the end of security whatsoever.”

    Just an excuse for govt to validate its existence. "You need us to protect you from yourselves." But taken a step further, how about "Homeowners"? If you actually own your own home, should you "be allowed" to smoke in your own home? Remember, the goal is to convert Rights into Permissions, then DENY those Permissions. Now, before you answer, define "Homeowner". Is it a person that took out a loan from a bank to buy their house? If that is the case, then those people are NOT technically the "Homeowner", the Bank is. Would the Bank have the Right to decree you "may not smoke" in the home they own? Should only people who have paid off their houses be allowed to smoke? Taken a step further, if the Bank owns your home, what other Behaviors will they have authority to regulate? If there are children in the home of a person who owes money to the bank for the purchase of their house, will the Bank have Authority to decide whether or not you may or may not Homeschool? At what point is the line drawn? Not only do we apparently need Big Govt to "protect us from ourselves", do we also need Banks and Corporations to regulate peoples behavior? Would they validate that by "just protecting their investment"? Why not add in to Employers? Since Employers pay the Owners / Renters, would that not be misconstrued to be the same as Public Housing since essentially the Employer is paying the Rent / Mortgage? Should an Employer also have Authority to tell ALL employees how they may or may not behave? By the exact same token, why not Insurance Companies? Why not EVERYONE except the individual to have any self authority what so ever? Socialism is the Great Lie by which everyone lives at the expense of everyone else. By extension, it gives everyone authority over everyone else, until everything is illegal.

    Get em while they're young... There are big problems with Education in general. The specifics of the problems are mentioned constantly in the Family, Parenting, and Education thread. If they get "control" of Homeschooling, all they end up doing is continuing the same set of problems that plague Education and making sure those problems continue into Homeschooling. Its a double edged sword they plan to use to discredit Homeschoolers by eventually claiming that Homeschooling is no better than Public Education, so why waste your time, then saying they have zero involvement in how children are schooled when not in Public Education. Things like Standardized Tests. Trouble with Standardized Tests is it only shows a form of Inauthentic Learning. The real lesson is the test itself. What Standardized Testing itself teaches as a lesson is fixed habits of reaction to authority. In homeschooling, it teaches children that parents are NOT figures of authority as they have to answer to the State. The subject matter when taught with the context of standardized tests is completely irrelevant because the real lessons that are taught thru interference is that no one is safe from that interference. Next major problem is that it will teach children that parents are incompetent and should not be looked to as sources of valid information. This further destroys the Nuclear Family, or what is left of it. Govt regulation causes intentional interference between the natural relationship between parents and children, and the problems that are created will cause blame to be thrown about within the family itself, but Govt will absolve itself of any wrongdoing. Statistically, the consequences will be held in the light, despite the cause of the negative results being govt interference, failures will always be placed squarely on parent educators and used to discourage other parents from homeschooling. Then, if you had someone like Zippy who was an advocate of Compulsory State Education, they would shove those statistics down the throats of everyone while defending the system itself. The Prussian Education Model trained children to become Obedient Workers. In the near future, that may very well change dramatically. The system will be retooled so Workers is replaced by Voters. Children will be taught from birth too look to non family figures of Authority as their only salvation. Education when not homeschooled will teach children that their own parents are incompetent because they do not have answers to everything. When at home, the parents will be set up to fail because they will be required to teach New Math and place importance on adherence to stupid rules. This will cause the credibility of the parents to be severely undermined in the eyes of the children.
