    Yup. Govt prevents Free Market from correcting the issues caused by Govt interference, which limits competition, and causes a Downward Spiral. In a Free Market, the employees would have enough competition they could quit and work elsewhere. As it stands, Govt has actually caused interference with people quitting by having fewer and fewer choices until the only choice the employees have is to either work for the Big Business, or be jobless, both of which are subsidized by Govt. Basically, lets say 1000 people, and 10 of those people own businesses. If one doesnt pay, there are still 9 others to choose from. With Govt interference by requiring a License to compete, 2 people own business and employ the other 998 businesses. If the other business doesnt hire the person, the person that wants to quit is screwed by lack of choice. Much like Disney swallows up everything.

    Exactly. I think Legal Immunity comes from Group Affiliation. "Its a business" to stalk people and sell data to people who use that data as an Excuse (as you said) to charge them more without providing anything more in exchange. "We're a business" is the excuse for charging more and not paying their employees more. "We're a business" is the same excuse why they exploit govt to prohibit competition by requiring licenses for more and more areas of work. The idea of a Corporation is a Legalized Fiction that allows for Individual Profits without Individual Responsibility. USA, Inc.

    Again, its not just about InfoWars, it IS about Free Speech and Free Press for ALL people in general. That is what their Narrative is really designed to shut down. InfoWars is a Scapegoat.

    Again, fully agree. Playfully flipping the argument... What some people want. Sure, you can go to war, and we will even give you a gun and tanks and bombs, but youre not allowed to kill anyone! I dont think that would pan out as well as some people would hope.

    On occasion, there are legit reasons in specific situations. If you work at a job that requires use of a Face Mask (like Painting), it may be a functional necessity to be relatively clean shaven in order for the mask to work properly. Flipping the coin, it can also be considered Conformity of Appearance, which removes Individuality. They dont want Individuals in the military, they want cookie cutter assigned identities, and removing facial hair uniqueness is a physical manifestation of psychological individuality. Same exact reason in the Prussian Education Model that students are expected to wear School Uniforms.

    Well, a Civil Liberty would say that when I am in your house and it is your property, I have a Liberty to use the bathroom, but do NOT have a Right to smoke in your house. I would have a Right to smoke in my own house, but not yours, as it would be your permission (Civil Liberty) to grant in that specific situation. What neither one of us would have a Right to do is to decree that the other may not smoke, ever. Recognizing the difference between a Right and a Civil Liberty (Permission) is a very important concept to understand. Trouble with this understanding is that for most people, the Definition between Rights and Permissions has been heavily confused. Whether that Confusion is intentional or not, the consequences are the same. Rights end where the Equal Rights of others begin. So yes, a person you once invited into your house has Rights, but by coming into your house, where you are Sovereign, King, and there is NO higher authority, they choose to temporarily give up their own Rights and abide by your rules. Outside your house, you would have zero authority over what they do. You could say that based on their behavior outside your house that you will no longer allow them to come inside your house, but, being Sovereign over your own property, you do NOT need ANY reason to say "no, you may not come in". A "Civil Liberty" would be nothing more than a Permission you chose to grant, and have valid authority to revoke that Permission at any time. Can I have one of your beers? That is your Permission to grant, but most importantly, I should not think for a second that I have any authority to take your beer without your permission. Ron explained a form of this as Entitlement. Immigration I do not believe is a Right, but a Permission to be granted by the We the People, and we can pick and choose, and even cherry pick who we will allow to come into the country for what ever reason, if any, that we want. Also, this isnt directed specifically at you, just an in general reply.

    Making anything illegal only creates a Black Market for it. If you want any sort of control over it, it needs to be legalized. Trouble with this concept is that it isnt Mexico that is consuming all the drugs, its the US.

    Then the People have Rights, both at an individual level, and at a national level? Would that also mean (and yes, stretching here a bit) to collectively say "we dont want every immigrant that wants to come here"? Would the People have the Right to do such a thing? Again, extending, if one of the foundations of Rights is "I own myself", as a collective (and yes, being careful with that), would "The People" technically own the country? And same as Private Property Rights where if you own your Property like your house, you have a Right to say you may / may not smoke in my house, and that is MY Permission to grant. A homeowner would also a Right to say you may / may not enter my house. Abstracting to larger scale and extension, collectively you may / may not enter our Country? Abstract to small scale, I think what has happened is a homeowner allowed a person to come into their house, and the invited person is now inviting other people to come into the homeowners house, even though they do not have the Right to do so. I believe that concept is why there is a major difference between Constitutional Rights and Civil Liberties, where the Rights protect the Individual and Civil Liberties protect the community as a whole. Feel free to challenge the idea, but is that thinking rational?

    Lets play with an idea here... The idea is how to shut down InfoWars instead of how to keep them going, or if InfoWars is protected by First Amendment. And, lets do it legally. Easy concept that respects Freedom of Press, called Free Market. So, if we wanted InfoWars shut down, then people would not watch, and companies would not associate with InfoWars by advertising products. First, InfoWars would adjust their prices for Law of Economics, for Supply & Demand. If that did not work, then InfoWars would go out of business because no one listened and no one bought advertising or sold products or provide services. Free Market and Free Press both work as neither Right is even remotely infringed. The reason that Free Market has not worked in shutting down InfoWars is exactly because of Free Market, protected by Free Press. InfoWars has a Demand for people to get information that does not fit the MSM's Official Narrative about more war and bigger govt and terrorists and socialism / communism. InfoWars offers their own flavor with the exact opposite, that bigger govt is not the solution, socialism / communism does not work, more war hurts everyone, and individuals and small groups in high positions of power really are out to cause harm to people in various forms. Both Alex and MSM offer different flavors of Sensationalism. That Sensationalism is a drug that can get people addicted as it plays on Emotions. Trouble is, people stop watching for the Truth, but rather how much information is Sensationalized in the way it is presented.

    Hmm... If people are not given Rights from Govt, but rather their Creator, and Govts are created by people, would that make the People the Creator of Govts, and, in turn, again since Rights are granted by their Creator and People created Govt, can the People grant very specific Rights (really Privileges) to the Govts they create? I am sort of testing the concept of Abstraction at both Macro and Micro scale, so I need to hear both sides to the argument... The idea is that things which work at the small scale also work on large and very large scale, abstracting back and forth between very small and very large, so I am curious.

    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.

Is a Future Revolution Possible Without Privacy?

by DamianTV on 03-11-2013 at 02:16 PM
(This was a post that I slightly edited to make sense by itself. The original post is here.)

Very few people are looking toward the Future when Privacy is Impossible. But if Privacy is completely gone, will a Revolution even be possible?

Google GlASS might be able to record what you do right now as a video, but this will only be the first in a long series of progressively privacy invading advancements. One of them inevitably will be Google Contact Lenses. However,
