More Alternatives to group think and consensus reality



Don't fall for the red herring that the Cambridge Analytica scandal is about that group,  THIS IS ABOUT FACEBOOK!  In fact,  let's be serious here,  this is a broader issue  than that actually,  but that's not the point of this post.

If you really want to get to the heart of it Dean Henderson does a better job of deconstructing it than I do on his blog:

At the foundation it can be broken down into two main categories.  1) Search Engines and 2) Social Media.

I've already dealt with search engines,  be sure to read that post before reading this.  Here it is:

Regarding social media,  here are two perspectives :

And:

Make no mistake,  this is not about Trump,  or the Dems or any trivial partisan issues the presstitute echoe chamber will no doubt cough up,  this is much more fundamental and serves as nothing more than a reminder that there is algorithmic prejudice,  leaking (for both commercial and intelligence marshaling)  along with a general attitude of profiling and reality manipulatation that has psychological,  geopolitical and otherwise generally Orwellian unease associated with it.

Rather than getting bogged down in it I'll focus on Alternatives that don't serve this sort of ethos as obediently,  as I did with part 1) above regarding search engines.

Alternatives to social media sites like Facebook,  Twitter,  YouTube and the like. 

STEEMIT.  This is the gold standard,  a blockchain solution!
https://steemit.com

Bitchute.
Bitchute is a torrent based platform  and all within your browser which is very valuable for those who see this as a viable solution :
https://www.bitchute.com

Minds.
Minds is considered a solid option because it's encrypted,  open source,  community owned and places a lot of value on free speech,  which is one of the most contentious aspects of all of this.  There is a caution with minds,  I've been told there are issues but since I've not tried it I'll let you decide.

D tube. 
Any crypto-decentralized streaming platform gets my vote.  Comes recommended.
https://d.tube

VK.
For those of you disillusioned or suspicious of Western social media? Are you the sort of person who doesn't #BlamePutin every time you get a flat tyre?  VK was originally a Russian platform now gaining massive popularity worldwide.
Https://www.vk.com

As usual if you have suggestions or cautions,  I'm only too happy to hear them,  see the contact details for me in the non-mobile web version of this blog.

Scientific Consensus is that Consensus is overturned 100% of the time

Everything you know is wrong. There is a very good reason why science succeeds more often than politics does.  Unlike politics, It's not a consensus or a vote,  it's actually method.  The scientific method. Anyone who has read this blog before probably knows I'm a lifelong science junkie as well as someone who spends thousands of hours breaking down the the political and economic agendas behind the special interest groups that guide public policy.  In many ways I'm actually uniquely qualified to tie these angles together in ways not well understood by the overwhelming majority of people.  That actually includes scientists. Scientists are notoriously naive in the political and economic forces that drive the human world.

First and foremost,  what is this so called 'consensus' anyway.  You will be horrified to find out,  it's not specifically that global warming is man made.  It's simply that humans contribute to climate change in an unknowable way and to…

CO2 is not a pollutant, it is greening the earth!

Whatever your persuasion is on CO² and AGW, nobody disagrees on the tremendous benefit it provides plant life. Many of the past famine disasters and desertification has CO² decline listed as a contributor.

I feel I've already blown the notion that humans are the main cause of climate change out of the water. Or rather I've used the reasoning of others and put it together in a convenient outline. See my previous post above for starters.  However, I recognize that humans do increase CO² levels, no matter how tiny. Increases are likely to be very short lived because the earth has an effective feedback mechanism, but we can apparently get small increases, and it's been put forward on very poor science that this is a bad thing. That assertion hinges completely on bad models. More on that in the bottom most link.  Model's and the measurement sample dates are dubious at best.


Furthermore, the main increase in CO²  as…

You Don't Know What Capitalism Is So Stop Using The Word!

I am writing this for one purpose, to be able to post it every time the issue comes up in conversation to prevent myself from dying of boredom on a few key issues with label intellectuals, you know, the sort who drop labels for the singular purpose of demonstrating their talent at dodging real issues by posing as someone who knows the definition of a word.

When it comes right down to it, I personally think most economic and, for that matter, socio-economic systems across the entire capitalism/ socialism spectrum could work if corruption could just be reasonably controlled.  Many forget that Socialism still runs on the capitalism economics system and the finer points actually come down to policy and regulations. This is often missed.  That being said, I am fairly sure that many of the criticisms of communism for example are valid, and views that it does not work especially well because it tends to kill the inventiveness and passion of the human spirit do stand, but not for the reasons…
