Americans want to be popular & on the edge of fashion / technology etc . That people will bring devices into theirhomes 🏡. Allowing themselves to be listened too at will .
Facial recognition selfies. Now we all know the reason behind them.Yet no one will stop using them .
People are so consumed with LOOKING good to others .. never realizing they fall into the trap of what society deems ... right .
#clothes - #homes - #cars - #schools - etc

Who are the #people telling the rest of us how & what we should have to look like we are successful.
Yet If we get mad 😡 or upset 😠 & start to ask questions —demand justice for America.Demand we stop being used for our resources. ( WELFARE )

People call use names bigot - racist - sexist - etc

They say if we love our COUNTRY we are somehow the extreme.

Hold fast & STAND 🆙

Brand-new and remarkable: #today, in a speech before #industry-representatives, chancellor Angela #Merkel used an old-fashioned, and,I think, INAPPROPRIATE,mathematical term to describe the #Brexit discussions..

On 20180925, 9:50 CET, (cf. bdi.eu/der-bdi/termin…), chancellor Merkel said the following: "Wesentlich hängt es natürlich auch davon ab, was Großbritannien denn wirklich möchte. Auch da ist ja die Diskussion nicht so ganz eineindeutig [sic],
und, das muss ich..
.. allerdings sagen: Man kann nicht zum Binnenmarkt gehören, wenn man in EINEM Teil nur zum Binnenmarkt gehören will, aber in drei ANDEREN Teilen nicht zum Binnenmarkt gehört, und da müssen wir verschiedene, äh, vernünftige Wege [ rest drowned out by applause ]."

I hold the view (held by some individuals for various reasons) that the #TeamPatriot hashtag is connected to a psychological operation. At present, I don't know by whom/for what. Argumentation will follow. #Twitter #PsyOp #PsyOps #MAGA #TCOT #QAnon #WWG1WGA #Resist #TheResistance
Over time, if my view changes along these lines (#TeamPatriot hashtag not connected to a psychological operation), I will make that clear. For the time being, I will write in this thread (and in replies) with respect to my current viewpoint.
Using "psychological operation" as a term calls to mind conspiracy theories, intelligence activities, etc., which are legitimate considerations of course. However, since we are dealing human communication, the ancient art of rhetoric is always on the table of analysis.
