The French government did not want the document to be made public, and officials were furious when its release made headlines around the world.
The stories — based on a secret document authored by France’s Directorate of Military Intelligence and obtained by the journalists at Disclose — highlighted that officials at the top of the French government had seemingly lied to the public about the role of French weapons in the war. They demonstrated the extent of Western nations’ complicity in the devastating conflict, which has killed or injured more than 17,900 civilians and triggered a famine that has taken the lives of an estimated 85,000 children.

14-year old girl became latest alt-right star on Youtube

Users — and more importantly to YouTube, advertisers — have over the past year started to hold the platform accountable for enabling the exploitation of children and exposing them to disturbing content. But this video reveals an entirely different way the platform is harming kids: by letting them express extreme views in front of the entire world. This is what indoctrination looks like when it’s reflected back by the indoctrinated.

This is sick, simply sick...
Of course, it’s all presented in the terminally ironic style popularized by boundary-pushing comedy groups like the influential Million Dollar Extreme and adopted of late by white supremacist mass shooters in Christchurch and San Diego.

Assuming you can call shit like this comedy, which we finally have to cease. This is not comedy, this is spreading of hate, fearmongering, and inciting violence against minorities. To call it comedy is like surrendering to the ongoing threat of white supremacy, fascism, racism, nationalism. Plain as simple, isn't it? Well, it doesn't seem to go in everybody's head, which is a problem as well.
She’s 14, precocious, isolated, and pissed off, a combination that has produced a lot of bad behavior over the years, but not all of it monetized through preroll ads and a Patreon, and not all of it streamed to millions.

The making of an oncoming Youtube star for the alt-right, as young as fourteen years old...
“Susan, I’ve known your address since last summer,” Soph said, directly addressing YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki. “I’ve got a Luger and a mitochondrial disease. I don’t care if I live. Why should I care if you live or your children? I just called an Uber. You’ve got about seven minutes to draft up a will. ... I’m coming for you, and it ain’t gonna be pretty.”

She's consciously threatening her life. I would report her, to get her parents imprisoned and may the Social Services take care of her, to find her a stricter foster family to straighten her, anyhow. This can't go on like this, she clearly requires some education in discipline. Well, she is something like a right-winger, isn't she? Well then, why not send her into a boot camp? They'll take care of her there, and I'm sure she's gonna love it. ;-)

#Rechtsradikale #AFD singt erste Strophe des #Deutschlandlieds!


The far right AFD sings: "Germany, Germany above all!"
Süddeutsches Flügeltreffen am 04.05.2019 in #Greding:
Immagine/fotohttps://invidio.us/watch?v=F8-xIHQV_SA
The first two strophs of the Deutschlandlied were misused by the Nazis
and no longer belong to the #German national anthem.

Im #Flügel ist Höckes wahrer Himmel,
Zufrieden jauchzet Groß und Klein:
In der AFD bin ich #NAZI,
In der AFD darf ich’s sein!

#Goethe, #Faust I, Vers 938-940
The Flügel is #Höcke’s proper paradise;
They shout and revel - great and small:
I'm a NAZI In the AFD, in the AFD I can it be!

A bit of reading in the sun





Shoshana Zuboffs "The Age of Surveillance Capitalism" is essential reading to understand the madness that is called "the internet economy," by the ones who want to profit by your free behavioural data. Also be sure to follow @Aral Balkan for additional insights into this exploitative business.

Nice feedback :)

And herein lies my future attention, @V. T. Eric Layton. But I must clarify - best done through an example; Even if I follow #politics to get some news concerning politics, I get less thought through opinions on politics. Any tag can mean a lot of different things. That's my experience since the first chat-rooms, and BBS:es even. But maybe I need to bang my head against these functions here a bit more :)

Size matters, you say @Peter Gervai. Well, I'd say Diaspora is allready past that limit.

I guess my point there was I am satisfied and pleasently surprised with what Diaspora is this far. And it can get better for me. But for these one time tryers, it might be just a nother fish in the sea. A fish where you have to work to get contacts - which may not yet be suitable for the like-me-addict.

What are your thoughts? :)


 

#Goethe and the #Brexit


MEPHISTOPHELES.
Ich sag es dir: ein Kerl, der spekuliert,
Ist wie ein Tier, auf dürrer Heide
Von einem bösen Geist im Kreis herum geführt,
Und rings umher liegt schöne grüne Weide.

#Goethe, #Faust I, Vers 1830
To waste your time in idle speculation
is acting like a beast that's driven in a circle
by evil spirits on an arid moor
while all about lie fair and verdant fields.

#Goethe and #DonaldTrump. I am the Spirit that Denies Forever!

FAUST.
Bei euch, ihr Herrn, kann man das Wesen
Gewöhnlich aus dem Namen lesen,
Wo es sich allzu deutlich weist,
Wenn man euch Fliegengott, Verderber, Lügner heißt.
Nun gut wer bist du denn?

MEPHISTOPHELES.
Ein Teil von jener Kraft,
Die stets das Böse will und stets das Gute schafft.

FAUST.
Was ist mit diesem Rätselwort gemeint?
MEPHISTOPHELES.
Ich bin der Geist der stets verneint!
Und das mit Recht; denn alles was entsteht
Ist wert dass es zugrunde geht;
Drum besser wär's, dass nichts entstünde.
So ist denn alles was ihr Sünde,
Zerstörung, kurz das Böse nennt,
Mein eigentliches Element.

Goethe, #Faust I, #Studierzimmer I, #Vers 1331 ff.
FAUST.
The essence of the like of you
is usually inherent in the name.
it appears in all-too-great transparency
in names like Lord of Flies, Destroyer, Liar.
All right, who are you then?

MEPHISTOPHELES.
A portion of that power
which allways works for Evil and effects the Good.

FAUST.
What is the meaning of this riddle?
MEPHISTOPHELES.
I am the spirit that denies forever!
And rightly so! What has arisen from the void
deserves to be annihilated.
It would be best if nothing ever would arise.
And thus what you call havoc,
deadly sin, or briefly stated: Evil,
that is my proper element.

The Watchdogs That Didn’t Bark

It’s also hard to overlook the fact that a lot of privacy advocacy groups in the U.S. get funding from the same tech companies that would ostensibly be affected by government regulation of consumer data collection. EFF, for example, took in about $822,000 from Google, including donations from employees that are matched by the company, in fiscal 2017. CDT collected about $590,000 in donations and support from Google in 2016 and received $250,000 from Facebook last year. As for OTI, Google’s former CEO Eric Schmidt co-founded and has been a significant donor to New America for years. He and his wife’s philanthropic foundation committed to $4 million in funding New America from 2016 to 2021. All of these groups maintain complete independence from their donors.
