#Capitalism/#Work: "Timed to go to the toilet. Told off for leaning. Monitored for each package completed. As a #worker at #Amazon, I often feel that we aren’t being treated as people."…
"We are treated worse than the #robots doing automated tasks in the warehouses. If the robots have an issue, the company pays for them to be serviced, whereas if we drop below certain targets multiple times, we can be fired – we have to sort it out or get out"
"Everyone who I work with at the warehouse in Coventry is frustrated.... The shifts are hard work, spent all on our feet, walking miles back and forth through large warehouses. All of that for just £10.50 an hour. That’s why about 400 workers at our warehouse are striking today."

In your experience, how are institutions/corporations/govts run?

1⃣Meritocracy-best👱& ideas rise to top
2⃣Checks & Balances minimise foul play
3⃣Free Markets & Rule of Law
4⃣"Greater Good" drives Policies/Growth

If so, then this🧵isnt 4 u.

Stay happy. Move on.🤗

Before proceeding, best to review how Western education system indoctrinates & produces Asch+ / Milgram+ groupthink oriented👱, all under #DoubleSpeak "pursuit of excellence" banner, & accept that these "best & brightest" fill Western institutions


Did you go through the above 🧵carefully?

Indeed this "Plague of Excellence" that drives "threat" of Genius out of the institutional frameworks is a genuine civilisational threat.

So this is important.

2| What caught my eye in this @guardian article was the quote:

“In Israel there is a strong political movement to make #diplomacy through #business. Business first, diplomacy later. When you make a deal together, it opens a lot of doors to diplomacy.”
3| The notion that #profits trump #consent is rather disturbing, but perfectly in line with the product- #spyware.

The Govt's #Orwellian paper on 'Higher education: free speech & academic freedom' is, imho, one of the most #sinister moves toward a #totalitarian state that Britain has ever experienced, based on an almost total absence of either good sense or evidence.…
In section 2: "The case for change - Key aims & principles", the central claim that "There is growing concern within government of a chilling effect on university campuses", is based on pathetically flimsy evidence, taken from opaque free-market think tank, the 'Policy Exchange'.
This, one of just a handful of evidenced claims in the entire document about the so-called 'free speech crisis', is taken from a 2019 report called "Academic freedom in the UK" - which used a sample of just 505 UK university students - about 0.02% of UK students!

EVERYONE should be EXTREMELY CONCERNED about the Govt's sinister #Orwellian attacks on free speech: the CHARITY-SILENCING Lobbying Act; 'Online Harms' legislation will SILENCE FREE SPEECH on social media (regulated by Dacre!); & legislation REGULATING FREE SPEECH in Universities.
Orwell’s name is associated with #totalitarianism & the #manipulation of language.

In #doublespeak, words are used to mask their real meaning, & to refer to their exact opposites: the Govt claims of an 'attack on free speech' conceals THEIR OWN repeated attacks on free speech.
Newspeak involves the simplification & purification of the English language to the extent that it functions purely as a means of maintaining state power & control.

Take back control.

The will of the people.

Enemies of the people.

Free speech is under attack from the woke.

@Heidi_Cuda @BrentAllpress @Tentoads4truth @elliemail @MalcolmNance @Nick_Carmody @TeamPelosi @YourAnonCentral @jennycohn1 @ericgarland @JYSexton @politico YVW thank you for all your posts/threads..the CA one was excellent- the psychometric profiling of people prone to extremism and weaponizing them is one of the low points of this sad Trump/Brexit saga in history. For my money Murdoch is one of beneficiaries of it.

WOW Review | A deep dive into President Trump’s doublespeak and other rhetorical tricks… #DemagogueForPresident
"it deserves a place alongside George Orwell’s “Politics and the English Language” and Harry G. Frankfurt’s “On Bulls---.” It’s a brilliant dissertation on Trump’s patented brand of balderdash. That makes it one of the most important political books of this perilous summer." WOW!
Thank you @Folly_and_Glory, I'm speechless.

Orwellian pandemic 101:
Bukan lockdown, tapi PSBB.
Bukan mudik, tapi pulang kampung.
Bukan tidak transparan, tapi agar tak panik.
Bukan konflik kepentingan, tapi maladministrasi.
Bukan pengangguran, tapi pra-kerja
Bukan tidak becus, tapi tidak sempurna
Bukan nakes korban, tapi nakes pahlawan
Bukan kenaikan harga, tapi penyesuaian harga
Bukan ekonomi ATAU kesehatan, tapi ekonomi DAN kesehatan
Bukan korupsi, tapi niat baik
Bukan tidak mau tahu, tapi tidak tahu
Bukan tidak tahu, tapi belum dikasih tahu
Bukan lepas tangan, tapi mengundurkan diri
Bukan Omnibus Cilaka, tapi Omnibus Cipta Kerja

Wow. #Orwellian #Doublespeak Below @KathyBoockvar claims to be part of a bipartisan effort to improve #ElectionSecurity. Yesterday she released a report re-certifying the #ExpressVoteXL through a secret review that was not open to the public.…
3 good government groups made a joint statement about what a charade this #security review of the #ExpressVoteXL was…
“It is disappointing that @KathyBoockvar decided not to be fully transparent” said @kskoglund Chief Technologist of Citizens for Better Elections. “Every petition for reexamination since 1980 has included a demonstration where the public and petitioners were invited."
