The Council for National Policy #CNP, "The Secret Society"…
"the heart of a great conservative movement that helped to make America strong and prosperous in the 20th century – now helping to ensure she remains free and secure in the 21st century,"
Some CNP members - Mike Pence comes quickly to mind - in the context of bolstering their conservative credentials, have proudly revealed their CNP membership, even though CNP's policy is to keep membership a secret. Here is it's 2014 Membership, the latest…
#CNP's tentacles include well-connected activists who advocate for the imposition of fundamentalist Christian ideology in public life and have succeeded in forcing their agenda in republican administrations. A list of organizations working with CNP…

How I Select The Books To Read And Crush Problems Instantly.

Most times, the question people ask me is, 'what books can I suggest for them to read?'

Well, what I am about to share is an unpopular way of reading books.
I read hundreds of books, articles, reports and blogs every year. I am a lifelong learner.

Again, they ask, "what books can I suggest for them to read?'

I feel that's not a correct question and in fact, it is likely I will mislead you.
In one sentence, the question I ask myself to select any book to read is:

'What answers do I need for my current situation?'

Let me give you an example, if my current situation or challenge is, 'How can I get at least 20,000 views on every linkedin video I post'

1. #disinformation is like a computer virus for humans. A #computervirus is a set of instructions that are run on a machine to perform procedures that advance the goals of someone other than the machine’s user.
2. Disinformation is a set of propositions that are introduced into the belief structure of a person in order to bring that person to advance the goals of someone other than that person.
3. If #disinformation is the #virus then #socialmedia is the delivery device. So when people connect to social media, what is the firewall or anti-virus system that protects their belief set? You might say “critical thinking.”....

A new draft of the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 #PDPBill was released this week, and introduced in the Lok Sabha yesterday. It builds on the earlier draft prepared by the #SrikrishnaCommittee, but with a few significant changes ⬇️
The most concerning provision in the new #PDPBill is Section 35 on exceptions for the state for national security, law enforcement, sovereignty etc. It drops the legal test of ‘necessity and proportionality’ and legality, taking a huge step back on #SurveillanceReform.
#PDPBill asks some #SocialMedia platforms to give users option to voluntarily verify their identities, posing questions about #FreeSpeech and if there will be greater #Surveillance of accounts who don’t identify themselves. This provision is out of scope for a #DataProtectionLaw.

While the expression #FOMO or "Fear of Missing Out" is widely used, the "Desire of Missing Out" a.k.a. DOMO is not. Perhaps it is taboo but DOMO is likely more common than most people think. [THREAD 1/]
#Millennial lexicon, i.e., FOMO, has normalized the need to belong (Baumeister & Leary, 1995) or what is known as affiliation motivation (McClelland, Koestner, & Weinberger, 1989) in academic psychology.
Clinical as well as social and personality #psychologists have long recognized the need to belong as a key dimension of human motivation and central to conceptions of personality functioning. 3/

What defines hate speech?

''Social media refers to websites and applications that are designed to allow people to share content quickly, efficiently, and in real-time. ... The ability to share photos, opinions, events, etc in real-time has transformed the way we live and, also, the way we do business''
'Hate speech refers to content that promotes violence against or has primary purpose of inciting hatred against individuals/groups based on certain attributes, such as: race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, sexual orientation/gender identity'

I'm pissed at Twitter ATM. So I'll make a deal with the world, to #DecentralizeSocialMedia.

If a group of >3 motivated coders say they'll devote significant spare time to building a better—truly decentralized, not merely federated—#socialmedia network, then I would offer... write reasonably detailed requirements for the system, get behind it, and use and promote it (FWIW).

I mean a new but old-fashioned nonprofit #OSS network. The for-profit groups on offer are uninspiring.

If you are a dev who's interested, introduce yourself.
I can tell you the general idea though.

Basically, what needs to exist is a system that allows me to have a totally independent social media feed, and to subscribe to somebody else's totally independent feed, all from an app I control.

I have breaking news concerning Twitter and me:

Twitter has marked my humble blog, LarrySanger . org, "unsafe," so that no one can link to it within twitter. This means I can't share my latest blog posts on Twitter.

#breakingnews #news #socialmedia
I'm available to talk about this to anyone in the media.

This of course came with no warning or explanation. You can see this message for yourself by following an old link, such as the one in this post:

In fact, when I try to link to my blog from within a tweet, I get the following pop-up:

Twitter is now silencing us. No complaints just a computer program that they use to ban our free speech. Speech that they do not agree with. So what is it that I have said that is not protected under free speech? @Jack do you not get that if you ban all of US there will be no...
reason for the bots, Trolls & Soros employees to come here to troll us & your platform dies. You are so caught up in your own lies that you believe them & have totally lost touch with the reality of the world.
#Qanon #FreeSpeech #FakeNews #Trump2020 #InternetBillofRights
Pedophilia, Porn, Child porn etc are fine on your platform but God forbid someone speak out against those things.

You seem to forget that without users you have no platform & everything stops. Are you really that stupid?

My boss used to say that I'm a good learner and so I rarely make the same mistakes twice. #Thread
It's because my mind does this weird thing. I take a pictorial snapshot of important events and can recollect the feelings and sensations years later, as if they happened yesterday. I remember Ebenezers; life's memorials.
I vividly recall when I realised that certain values were becoming rare in Nigeria. Concepts like hard work, diligence, loyalty, love, honesty etc. It was 10 years ago.

This is one of the most controversial videos we've ever posted but if you have an open mind you'll know she speaks 100% truth.

It starts with indoctrination and education...
"The first modern human beings that evolved on this earth were Black women...& every human being on the face of the earth today has the memory of those Black women's genetic structure in their genes. We don't want to admit that, but that's the way it is..." - #JaneElliott

What if I told you that #BigTech and #SocialMedia platforms are manipulating you, steering you toward #Health information that they think is right, rather than letting you evaluate content for yourself?

Commentary by @MaryamHenein (Thread 👇)…
Accredited professionals, meanwhile, who stand for #Health freedom and who criticize Big Anything, are losing posting privileges, getting banned, being buried, finding themselves deranked, and getting digitally assassinated.
Content is literally disappearing from the Internet along with our #Health choices.

It sounds conspiratorial because it is. Independent #Journalists and health experts are blowing the whistle. But it’s become a silent one.

I've always been a firm believer in school uniform.
A fair, accessible and affordable uniform does have benefits, reducing bullying of those who can't afford branded clothing, introduces discipline in a fair way as everyone appears equal.
But current uniform policy has gone far beyond being uniform.
It is no longer affordable and accessible.

It is now teachers and schools who bully and abuse the pupils, who make lasting judgements based on appearance.
There is no such thing as a uniform size where children are concerned but the child is punished for their size, shape not conforming to the manufacturers average.

Girls are taught by their educators to expect judgement and abuse because of what they wear and how they wear it.
