    Zuckerberg Admits Social Media is a Weapon, Says Facebook in 'Arms Race' Against 'Bad Actors'

    written by danielle ryan thursday september 6, 2018

    If you had any lingering doubt that Facebook has become little more than a vehicle for US government censorship and Western propaganda, a recent Washington Post op-ed by Mark Zuckerberg should remove any ambiguity.

    In his short and snappy op-ed, Mark Zuckerberg admits that “protecting democracy” is an “arms race” and reaffirms Facebook’s commitment to winning. Put another way, Zuckerberg is telling us that social media is a weapon — and that he has picked a side.

    Because, let’s not labor under the false illusion that Facebook cares about democracy everywhere. In Zuckerberg’s world, there are bad guys and good guys — and he’s relying on the good guys to tell him what’s what.

    The problem is that, coincidentally, the good guys always seem to be tied to Western or Western-aligned governments — and the bad guys always just happen to be the ones those governments don’t seem to like very much. A conundrum which I’m sure was totally unintentional and which Facebook is no doubt working very hard on figuring out. As he says in the Post, Facebook is working very hard to “improve its defenses” against any kind of unfair or nefarious influence and it has been doing its very best to remove “fake accounts and bad content”in recent months.

    The military comparisons (“arms race” and “improving our defenses”) are perhaps more apt than Zuckerberg even intended, given that for some of this work, he has chosen to partner up with the Atlantic Council, which operates essentially as a soft-power lobbying wing for NATO, campaigning vociferously on behalf of the US-led military organization and championing its wars and “interventions” across the world.

    In a roundabout sort of way, Zuckerberg’s op-ed is unintentionally honest, because a huge amount more can be inferred from what he doesn’t say than what he does say.

    Funnily enough, despite offering a list of actions Facebook has taken against what Zuckerberg calls “bad actors” online, the psyops and social media manipulation orchestrated by Western governments — chiefly, the US, UK and Israeli governments — don’t get so much as a passing mention in his op-ed. This is odd, given his sincere and deep commitment to combating fake news and misinformation. Clearly, the little democracy fairies that whisper orders in his ear every day must have forgotten to mention them. I mean, let’s give the guy a break. It’s a big responsibility to have the fate of democracy resting on your shoulders.

    Belief, Money, and Violence

    If the only way that the majority of people were to come from Facebook, the algorithms are being distorted creating "Thought Bubbles", these are the things you are "allowed" to think, and anything outside of that information each user is presented with says what is most important: "That which you are NOT ALLOWED to think". That is controlling people with the first proxy of Belief.

    Both Fedbook and Google got their starts by NSA / CIA funding (In-Q-Tel), which exploits the 2nd proxy of Money. You arent paid to exercise your Constitutional Rights and nor should you be. If any person works diligently to shut down people for expressing opinions that contradict either the Belief or Money proxies, they WILL enact Violence against you. They have authority to use Violence to suppress you with guns and will execute you should you say anything too dangerous to their Monopoly of Powers.

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.

    God forbid if this guy ever runs for president. He'd love the chance to be emperor of the world.
