    After a heavy day on the efes, I was trying to take a couple of cans Amstel malt into the attaturk, until someone pointed out it was alcohol free. fuck alcohol free spirits though. I had 18 weeks off the ale in one go last year. Think it’s easier to just go without than fuck about with alcohol free.

    We had a copy of the epoch times stuck in the mailbox (suspect @skaro or @Hades had been in the neighbourhood). I had no idea what it was but thought, I’ll have a read at some point, it hung around the flat for a few weeks, then I picked it up on a trip to the dunny and nearly fell off the throne when I realised what it was.

    I think when you look at the political leaders of the right, they are happy to trample on as many of those beneath them as it takes to get as high up the chain as possible. but they are definitely the tail and not the dog, and no matter what they think is happening the dogs are in control, they are happy for the tails to thi me they are, but look at the example of Murdoch over the years, and as you state the platform Granted to Trump, which has now been whipped away. the centre seem most concerned with maintaining a status quo that gets steadily worse year on year, like mr barraclough trying to keep order in HMP Slade. The level of power the tech companies (or rather their investors) now wield, goes back to the old days of the Rockefeller’s Rothschilds et al, but now as well as having vast sums of financial wealth with which to influence, they have the data and knowledge via machine learning and predictability with which to influence people at the individual level, that it seems to be game over. how we get away from this I have no idea, I’m not sure regulation can happen unless the tech giants want it, and that would be turkey’s voting for Christmas.

    Haha all good John, as you say it’s upside down and as long as it continues so, this shit will happen. we have to hope for some kind of benign dictatorship along the lines of the Jedi council. Working capacity requirements are going down yearly (for the bullshit jobs anyway), ML is slowly infiltrating the arts, UBI has to come at some point, I half think there are a few at the top who want to see the global population reduced via global warming, which is behind the big money end of times safety shacks in NZ. only time will tell.

    Some women, think in 1918 you still had to own a house or some strange shit to be enfranchised. So a bit like how liberals and the Tories would like to have things again. Less of the uneducated and unwashed getting their votes wrong. (I get that yer post was a piss take but it underpins an important point) Fully agree, the people behind these companies, especially the post millennium one, are so heavily diversified, with fingers in so many pies. Paypal gave us Musk & Thiel, consider what each of those is into, Musk seems the less nefarious at the minute, but both are of a clear libertarian bent, Thiel is clearly pursuing this through Palantir, he was also one of the 1st investors to Facebook. FaceBook as previously stated has workplace so it can monitor us dusk till dawn, even to the point of switching from workplace to FB/Instagram/WhatsApp when you go take a shite at work, if you are invested in the system they can track you around the clock. Every time some new platform arrives these bastards try to buy them, and due to the costs involved - no-one outside of the mega technocrats can afford them. people are also so reluctant to change platforms, even when you clearly state the problem and possible solutions to them. The need for a global solution, I think will only one when you have major blocs such as the EU or US making progressive changes. Problem with this is the people most heavily invested, will do what ever they can to prevent this, and I think part of the Brexit deal was definitely with regards to tracking and seriously disincentivising offshore accounting, rather than setting low slap-on-the-wrist non-punitive fines that are then built into the financial planning of the firms breaking the rules. Bow your greater industry knowledge on this shit. and yes, the Swede, mosdef, yes.

    who is giving all opinions equal weight? This is certainly not my point, my point is that the individuals who believe the Q stuff, the trump stuff, the shit that has been supported by the senators and other representatives who are in on the gig, the people at the bottom end, the ones being whipped into a frenzy, they have an inarguable belief that what they are following is true and everything you throw at them as proof, one of them (whether from the top or bottom) will come up with reason of why that supports their theory. Have a listen to this interview: https://www.podbean.com/eu/pb-xke2g-f70151 Jarlath Regan with Marion McKeone a journalist based over there, she tells of how the teachers down to the kids in schools are so heavily indoctrinated into this shit. Just telling them it's bollocks won't work - we have a great example of this - religion. Fully agree, they need to be duly processed, but it shouldn't just be the idiots on the floor, it needs to hit the whole of the chain, otherwise it's a fucking sham, people will see it as a sham, and it will continue to feed their narrative(s) no mater how utterly ridiculous they may seem. the problem now, is the same as the problem 30 years ago, most people have had their news fed to them via old media, even online - BBC, Daily Heil, News Corp etc are the most popular sources of info, these have been setting the tone over time that enable the fringe media. Something as simple as this from well known conservative journalist investigating anti-semitism allegations against Corbyn Labour - no British media will pick it up - yeah keep going on about Corbyn, but it's fundamental to the argument about power in the west - that it is always loaded in favour of those wielding power, rather than what benefits the general public - the obfuscation of truth sits at the very top of the media pile, this level of misinformation enables those lower down fringe elements, as they can build on the lies and hate fulled by those further up. https://www.middleeasteye.net/opinion/labour-antisemitism-forde-inquiry-leaked-report-what-happening The purge needs to start at the top. not the bottom. Regulate at the top and the bottom, if you just focus on the bottom, nothing will change and more bottom feeders will spring up. Also look at the issues affecting the bottom, yeah they maybe a bit lower down the scale intelligence or education wise, but just shouting the thick fuckers should just understand the truth doesn't work, it's a shit approach, communication is 2 way, some of the stuff that Ashli bird was talking about were financial issues, similar things affected a lot of Brexit voters - look to fix them.

    because the TV and Press are regulated, whereas online media is not.

    the problem with behemoths including Amazon, FB, Paypal etc is that they are more powerful than nation states, the need to be cut down and have regulations applied, but they are now so heavily integrated politically this is unlikely to happen, and they will continue to have such behind the curtain power into the future, why put yourself out front when you can achieve so much pulling strings - the Murdoch way. From a technical perspective with regards cloud providers - the data is safe, everything probably was partitioned and separated from other client (for such a big app), the problem was that the application they built onto of the cloud was insecure, that is not the problem of Amazon, that issue lies with the software devs, they left the holes for the hackers to get in. I can build a house and put locks on all the doors and windows, top spec alarm system, Rottweiler in the garden, but if you leave your wifi unsecured, some dickhead can still drive past, hack your operating system and gain access to all of your data If people start pushing back then as per @Bruce Spanner supporting this legitimises their actions, you cannot say it is wrong for group a to push back but ok for group b to push back. And this isn't false equivalency, it's basic fucking sense. Some of these QAnon and Trumpo wankers believe their truth just as much as people on the other believe theirs, how can they not see the truth etc - all of the same arguments from both sides and what one uses as ammunition the other uses as defence. The people are not the problem, the system is the problem, and the system will not change, as it doesn't want to, the people pulling the strings do not want it to, and they hold far more sway and influence than any politician, party, association or celebrity - Tom Jones couldn't rescue this shit. The chances were spurned the UK and US as Bernie and Corby were jettisoned, that was a major signal of, we'll all carry on regardless. AWS may not be abusing their monopoly position in these circumstances, I agree, they do in plenty of other circumstances however. Tech companies defy need to be broken up, or we (in the west) are basically living under the 7 kingdoms due to the capital and influence (both politically and at the individual level) they hold: Amazon, Facebook, Twitter, Alphabet, MS and Apple, Paypal

    Sorry but the last paragraph is bollocks. the only verifiable truths we have come from the sciences, maths, physics etc and even those are only true until they are proven false. if you fail to accept any nuance then you commit the same foolish mistake as those on the opposite side of the coin. this is what has gotten us to where we in the west are today. no longer is there debate, now it is all black and white, true or false, left or right. were labour riddled with anti-semites under Corbyn - yes / no Jeremy Corbyn could never be prime minister - yes / no boris Johnson will get us through Brexit - yes / no this shit needs to change, answers are not this simple. Many more people are far closer on certain issues than others, using an iron curtain to distinguish one from another on single issues means less chance of removing the divisions, which means the spiral down will continue.

    Fox, AON or wherever McEnany came from, Alex Jones et al, they do have choices that support the world view they have absorbed. some of these sources have been slowly building an alt right universe for over a decade, for the past 4 years the supposed leader of the free world along with various republican political faces have continued to push the message. fuck me you have a QAnon elected official.

    Do any of those serving in the military believe they are protesting in another country? there will be plenty who have served in these ‘illegal’ wars who have believed they are acting justly, in both the best interests of the country being invaded and the US. the beliefs are in the head of the people committing the actions, do they believe they are justified, it is unarguable that both here and in any of the us led invasions there will be people believing that what they are doing is justified. So take a listen to the rant from the woman who was killed in the riot and ask the question, what was she going for? She was going as she had issues with her that she perceived as state failure, she may believe everything that she did was justified. Were there agent provocateurs involved who knew what they were up to WRT insurrection etc? Undoubtedly, this does not negate the fact that some of those involved will have believed they were fully justified in their actions. Allowing the idea that protesters were involved does not legitimise the actions of the riot. does not legitimise the ideas of those who were carrying restraints and whatever ideas they had for using them. But it does allow room for discussion, to air grievances, state cases and talk (why did the these people flock to Trump? Because he spoke to them, they felt relevant, even when he was calling them fucking hicks) which is more likely to prevent further riots, than just calling them thick dickheads, who should be able to see the truth.

    Is the one on the right before or after? Looks like he had time for a shave, but otherwise did not pass go, and did not collect 200$
