Dissenters of the system and Suicides


Ilya Zhitomirskiy, a name maybe you do not recognize, but this young guy only 22 it is fighting for privacy rights, he has been working with another two friends to bring to you an alternative for facebook.
Diaspora is the project that if come to life will easily taken down the monopoly of facebook.

We as members of the social networks are continuously complaining that our privacy has lost its meaning, it has become just a product that it is bought and sold. Our privacy it is being mined by government agencies and marketing companies.

Facebook would be the worse place to share our friends, photos, status, articles, videos.

If everyone knew how facebook legal team has teamed up with government agencies you will immediately close your account.

Carefully review the Facebook.pdf-file attached, you need to know what it is being done behind you.

Facebook is based, registered and run in the United States of America.
This is bad because of the “Patriot Act“. Even if Facebook starts respecting your privacy, your data is still easily available to every governmental institution in the Country through open backdoors or requests, as this Facebook.pdf-file documents. Think about what this means to your freedom. Rield.com

Ilya Zhitomirskiy will never know how his Diaspora project has taken off and taken millions of user from facebook. He committee suicide just few days before Diaspora was launched. Their goal was to provide an idealistic Facebook alternative with an emphasis on user control and privacy.

“Shocked and deeply sad for the world that my friend @zhitomirskiyi, co-founder of Diaspora, is dead… The world needed his voice,” said Mozilla interface guru Aza Raskin

Diaspora has launched a site redesigned in the wake of Zhitomirskiy’s passing.

Now we have another bright mind gone who did had a future as bright as Ilya. I’m referring to Aaaron Swartz was an accompliced programer, a well known internet activist, who we can say was one of the younger politicians that could have changed the informatics age.
Rip Aaron Swartz and Ilya Zhitomirskiy, our world will miss these two great minds.

Congress mass hysteria: Facebook marketplace is not fair game


By Marivel Guzman

Ben Shapiro is a bright mind. I don’t agree with him 51 percent of the time but on this charade of congressional hearing, I agree; Completely!

In the video I shared bellow, Shapiro is shredding to pieces the “mass charade” of Mark Zuckerberg “testifying in Congress.”

In my opinion, the Mark Zuckerberg Congressional hearing was a circus for mass entertainment. Somehow, Congress is directing the attention away from the orders of President Donald Trump to invade a foreign state bypassing with this UN Security Council. This is another whole issue that I will discuss in another post.

I totally agree that Facebook has the responsibility to protect its user’s data–Not to sell it, not to lend it as the case with Cambridge Analytics, specially because, Cambridge Analytics is a foreign institution. It is a British political consulting firm, a corto its own website. Whose parent company SLC Group,” A private British behavioral research and strategic communication company.

What is interesting if you follow down the rabbit’s hole, you find out that SLC group joins the US State Department.

“Robert Mercer-funded dedicated Cambridge Analytics foreign parent company signs a deal to do propaganda work for State’s Global Engagement Center” says Text fire, at medium.com

According to medium.com, SLC Group was recently awarded a defense contract with the US State’s Department. To my opinion the whole scandal was because US State Department was caught with its pants down due to the leak by Christopher Wylie, “A whistle blower who exposed Cambridge Analytica’s role in a data breach affecting 50 million Facebook users earlier this month, tweeted documents that suggested the firm’s parent company,” said The Washington Post and its Asia&Pacific section of March 28 article, “Whistleblower claims Cambridge Analytica’s partners in India worked on elections, raising privacy fears.”

On the other hand, Facebook as a private business reserves the right to change the internal policies of its organization.

The users are given the tools to change the privacy settings, but nobody takes a day off to read Facebook privacy settings.

Mass hysteria will start when somebody does it and raise hell in his wall then everybody starts to share the “raise hell post,” then people go to change their privacy settings.

Now, regarding Facebook’s practices of gatekeeper of news, that is a whole new issue. Congress should ask the proper questions.

Also, monitoring our political views and sharing that information to parties that will use them against us in a “psychological experiment,” to sway our opinions, it is atrocious, right? But isn’t that exactly what main streammedia does, and for that matter our own government as well.

News networks chose and pick commentators that are sharp, well-mannered, and well groom into the network’s agenda. The guests are as well leaned to that agenda and to ‘make the audience’ believe they are unbiased, they’ll invite somebody on the other side of the political spectrum, and either, the guests are caught up with questions he/she can not answer with a short response, or the guest will be aggressive re-battled. If the guest is brave enough to make his voice heard, his/her microphone volume is decreased to the point where his voice is inaudible.

The same behavior is used by lobbyists, and politicians campaigns. They all use physiological behavioral strategies to impact the subconscious of the population.

Now, does Facebook have the right to do the same with their users?
The sponsors of Facebook do that job and because of those sponsors it’s that users have a free platform to share whatever they want to share.

The issue becomes skewed and spooky because Facebook is a global organization and serves a global market. Of course there always will be foreign interference and adds will flow freely to target audiences. Where is the illegally on that?

If this is so offensive and damaging to our democracy then foreign agencies as AIPAC should be illegal to operate in US soil.

Is Facebook guilty of treason? Then so is Congress, they take money from foreign entities such AIPAC, which clearly is a foreign agency working on behalf of Israel. It doesn’t matter that Israel is a friend of the US still is a foreign state.

Or, Is Facebook guilty of violating its own privacy policies? Well that crime won’t take anybody to jail but certainly can teach us that in a free marketplace everything is free game. Right?

After all we live in a Capitalist system where “supply and demand,” rules the game.
