With the #RESTRICTAct, #Congress wants to continue #Trump's war on #Tiktok, banning the Chinese-owned service. How will they do this? Congress isn't clear. In practice, banning stuff on the internet is hard, especially without a national firewall:… 1/ A modified vintage editoria...

My guess is that they're thinking of ordering the #mobile #duopoly of @Google and @Apple to nuke the Tiktok app from their app stores. 3/

Last week, @markgurman published a blockbuster story in @Business, revealing #Apple's plan to allow third-party #Ios #AppStores to comply with the #EU's #DigitalMarketsAct. @Apple didn't confirm it, but I believe it.

This is a huge deal. While Apple's "curated" approach to software delivers benefits to users, those benefits are unreliable. As I explain in a new post for @EFF's Deeplinks blog, Apple only fights for its users when doing so is good for its shareholders. 3/

In Bezos's original plan, the company called "Amazon" was called "Relentless," due to its ambition to be "Earth's most customer-centric company." Today, Amazon is an enshittified endless scroll of paid results, where winning depends on ad budgets, not quality. 1/ Jean-Leon Gerome's painting Pollice Verso, 1872, depicting g

The @DNC @GOP #duopoly are a distraction.


“We must understand not only our forces, but the forces of the enemy we face – the capitalist class. We need to learn from them and about them and see not only their strengths, but their vulnerabilities.” ImageImage
“The #CFR is the Central Committee of the U.S. capitalist class. The rest of the book outlines in detail who the central players in the CFR are and have been, how the CFR works, and which organizations and corporations it works through.”…
I heard @JohnKiriakou describe the #CFR as the think tank for #WallStreet. John said every #WallStreet #CEO sees themselves as a Secretary of State. That was an epiphany for me.

The President of the #CFR is @RichardHaass (2003 to Present).…

#AndrewYang and #KrystalBall have long conversation, on #YangSpeaks (now #Forward) about his new party (arguably NOT a party), what it will do, and why.

#YangGang have been waiting for definitive answers. Well, your wait is... not really over😵‍💫
What do I mean by that? Well...

@AndrewYang said he IS starting a new party...
BUT he "answered" the question of whether the Forward party would run candidates by saying it will back #Democrats and #Republicans who align with Forward policy...…
He said he is forming a new party because he doesn't believe changing #election rules in favor of more parties is likely to happen from within the #duopoly...

BUT, they're going to back duopoly candidates, and didn't mention running their own...

1) Short Thread entitled truth about "Fake News":

In case you are wondering why there is so much fake news coming out of the mainstream media over the last few years, here's your explanation in a nutshell
2) The 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) legalized the use of propaganda and military grade psychological operations (PSYOPS) on the US public, just like the one being waged against us right now.
3) On January 2, 2013, Obama signed and enacted into law HR 4310, also known as Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012, which was included in, and made part of the 2013 NDAA, which @realdonaldtrump signed off on the reauthorization of in 2018 ( #duopoly )

1) Thread entitled ‘Election 2020 I have a hunch’:
I have nothing to base the following on except:

A) a gut feeling

B) my knowledge of the dialectic process and the history of it’s use by the oligarchy

C) knowledge of the US Constitution.
2) First to understand my theory, one must understand the Constitutional voting process & most Americans seem to be a bit foggy on it...
3) State legislatures appoint the electors for their respective states.

Those electors actually determine which candidate gets the Electoral College votes for their state.

The popular vote is largely procedural, when push comes to shove it’s irrelevant legally.

I'm in a deep blue state.

I choose @HowieHawkins and @AngelaNWalker.

I respect leftists & progressives, particularly in swing states, who have decided to strategically vote for Biden.

Either way, we must #vote AGAINST Trump and his goons.

The past few years have been a very public soul-searching process for me. I've become radicalized by the realities around me and I've returned to my anti-establishment roots from the Bush era. The system is deeply corrupt. I will not uphold it one more day.

I've given 20 years of my life to fighting the GOP. I quit the Democratic Party this year because the leadership has enabled & empowered Trump. Just like they coddled war criminal Bush. Schumer fast-tracked Trump's judges. Pelosi funded his abuses.

A relatively small minority of Americans on the left believe the entire system is corrupt to the core and that the ONLY principled position is to tear it down and not to keep enabling the #duopoly. They see establishment Dems as faux-opposition...

Just as you may believe they are responsible for electing Trump, they think YOU are, by upholding a system that put Trump in power.

Just as you may believe they are "purist spoilers," they think you are unprincipled sellouts to the oligarchy...

Just as you may think they are helping Trump, they know that Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Dem leaders have enabled and empowered Trump, funded his most egregious policies, and fast-tracked his judges. All while raking in "resistance" money...

India is a land of unique monopolies....
Even though there are so many "competitors" in every sector, there is a consistent market share #monopoly/#duopoly in most sectors or particular segments of those sectors!
Some very prominent examples are...


Organized Paint Industry
Duopoly - 59%

Asian Paints - 42%
Berger Paints - 17%

(appx values)

Telecom Industry
Duopoly - 62% & rising

Jio - 34%
Airtel - 28%

Vodafone has 28% as of now but every month it loses out subscribers at a fast pace to Jio & Airtel

It is time that we as #Americans take a long hard look in the mirror. The #Republicrat #duopoly has and is failing us. How long do we suffer oppression voluntarily under their thumb? Have we no self respect? No sense of self worth?
If we vote lesser evil over and over and are continually failed by those sworn to represent us do we continue to vote in the same way or do we 'throw off such government' and 'alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government'?
There are a number of ways we could 'institute new government' we could do it through bloody coup, a civil war... These are ugly and profane to American ideals. We could however vote for someone from a party that is not currently represented in the federal government.

We as #Americans are facing down a terrible and destructive enemy. An enemy that knows no bounds, plays by no rules and is concerned only with driving a wedge into the staggering partisan divide in the #USA
That enemy is the @GOP @TheDemocrats #Republicrat #Duopoly
'But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. '
The yoke our founding fathers threw off was I do believe a lighter yoke than we Americans bear today. It was for all its weight a yoke forced upon them. Today we bear a yoke we have been manipulated into volunteering for.
