I don’t know…I just don’t know about this…

Sanders…Biden…Trump…They should all step back, and just get behind younger candidates…They might all three be dead, by the time we get to 2024…They’re very old…It’s high time for new blood…for young blood.

After the last two presidential campaigns, I don’t believe Bernie can do it…I think it’s just over for him…To much of his base has been burned…twice over.

He’s not been fighting the fundamental problems in politics and elections…and I cannot support him, again.

“Organised disinformation about the Covid-19 crisis has degraded public understanding of the crisis and threatened the reputation of credible vaccines and health policy.

This talk looks at the broad structures and recent history of computational propaganda – the use of algorithms, automation and human curation to distribute misleading information over social media.

Dr Howard reviews the latest evidence about social media use during our current health crisis, and reports on the very latest themes in Russian information operations about its invasion of Ukraine. He discusses the opportunities for using social media to deepen democracy and ‘build back better’.

I’ve been reading a Kindle version of Nietzsche’s The Anti-Christ…

…The guy strikes me as an arrogant, mouthy, pompous ass, speaking from his proverbial “ivory tower”, where it comes to his people skills and understanding of others…as well as the social workings around us all.

…That said…I still appreciate his critique on religion…I just think on a personal level, the guy was a piece of shit, with a feeble grasp on broader perspective…

…Sure…he didn’t care if the masses he looked down on would have gotten wiped out…until the day his “superior” sort was the only sliver of humankind left…and he then had to get off his own ass, and do the myriad of jobs and chores an army of common folk do daily, just to make his own existence possible…

…Then all could have seen just how “superior” he really was…as he flounders at 99.999% of it all.

3-Letter Agencies Now Focus their Attention Inward – to USA Citizens…

“In the news constantly is how the Department of Homeland Security, or the FBI designates certain members of the population as domestic terrorists. When you actually investigate the detail of who are designated as such, they appear to only apply only to one political side. Though it is obvious in reality that violence and protests come from all sides.

What is going on?

Why is there a seemingly active program to classify certain members of the population in a way reminiscent of the past, but done to the opposite side of the political spectrum? Have we forgotten our history? Wow, full circle.

And this is good?”
