Study Finds This Key Difference In Conservative Brains…

01) Study Finds This Key Difference In Conservative Brains


“A 2008 study published in the journal Science found that conservatives have a stronger physiological response to startling noises and graphic images. This adds to a growing body of research that indicates a hypersensitivity to threat—a hallmark of anxiety. But why exactly would those that scare more easily tend to support conservative views? One social psychologist from the University of Central Arkansas, Paul Nail, has a pretty interesting answer:

“Conservatism, apparently, helps to protect people against some of the natural difficulties of living. The fact is we don’t live in a completely safe world. Things can and do go wrong. But if I can impose this order on it by my worldview, I can keep my anxiety to a manageable level.” This could explain the two parties’ different stances on gun control. It only makes sense that those who startle more easily are also the ones that believe they need to own a gun.”

Fear and Anxiety Drive Conservatives’ Political Attitudes

This aligns with my personal experience with extreme conservatives.

They’re all about making threats, and acting as if I’m some sort of a threat for being an openly speaking MAP.

The paranoia and fear is rampant.

…They display angst to an extreme, even where it is not rationally justified…constantly running around looking for things to be offended, and alarmed by…to spook everybody else in their clan with.

01) Scientology Launches Its Own TV Channel


“The Church of Scientology is launching a new television network, and marketing it as a revealing affair that will shed a positive light on the secretive and contentious organisation.

The organisation appears to have begun marketing its coming service Sunday evening with a Twitter account, which links to a countdown clock to the launch Monday night, and has been regularly updating with videos every hour.

The only thing more interesting than what you’ve heard is what you haven’t, a promotional video teases…

YouTube Adds Wikipedia Links To Fact Check Conspiracy Videos…

01) YouTube Adds Wikipedia Links To Fact Check Conspiracy Videos


“YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki announced Tuesday that the Google-owned video website will link information from Wikipedia to content in hopes that it will combat the flood of videos promoting false conspiracy theories that have plagued its service.

The move will add background information provided by Wikipedia to certain videos on YouTube, Wojcicki said during a panel at the South by Southwest tech and music festival in Austin…

Well…lovely!

…Now we get the opportunity to have fake news [aka false information] published by Wikipedia inflicted upon us, wherever we encounter content on YouTube that strays from pop culture “wisdom”.

Do I even need to go over the many deep problems with this?

There are slanted and biased pages on Wikipedia, controlled and manipulated by dogmatic zealots with an agenda, who watch the page like a hawk and quickly undo edits they don’t personally like…

…Wikipedia has deep, deep integrity deficit issues…and these deficits are at their worst, when applied to socially heated issues.

01) HIDDEN CAMERA: Twitter Engineers To “Ban a Way of Talking” Through “Shadow Banning”


“In the latest undercover Project Veritas video investigation, eight current and former Twitter employees are on camera explaining steps the social media giant is taking to censor political content that they don’t like.”

They’re not up front about this…

It would be one thing, if they clearly employed historical forum tactics…and just stopped you from posting something by informing you that certain words were banned…At least then, people would clearly know it was happening…but, no…

…And that is sleazy.

I’ve noticed Twitter getting progressively terrible…not just with it’s banning of individual MAPs…but with notifications…and with providing fully intact tweet threads…

I’ve stumbled across tweets where I was tagged, while browsing somebody else’s channel…when I was never notified of these same tweets, in my own notifications…I’m not just talking about tweets from people I’ve had to block…I’m talking about friendly tweets, also.

There appears to be a terrible amount of interference going on at Twitter, where MAPs are the target group.

All online forums have a duty to inform individuals, anytime their account has been rendered to be in a limited state.

That Twitter [and YouTube, Facebook, etc.] refuses to do this…is absolutely unethical.

01) Bernie Sanders Cites “Corruption” as Reason for Wall Street Deregulation Push


“In an interview with Anderson Cooper, Bernie Sanders explained why Republicans are so anxious to quickly deregulate Wall Street: corruption. Additionally, he explained how this is being done while other, more important issues are getting ignored. As usual, Bernie Sanders was right on the money, but he needed to more clearly emphasize the role Senate Democrats have been playing in this latest push to deregulate Wall Street as well.”
