The plutocrats are pursuing internet censorship

… and they’re barely even hiding it

“The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum.” ~ Noam Chomsky, The Common Good

A few days ago Facebook blocked my account for posting an article about false flag operationsaround the world, then two days later unblocked me with an apology after I made a big stink about it, saying it was an accident. Things went back to normal, then yesterday something changed and now the only people seeing my posts on that account are Facebook friends I was interacting with back in 2012 and haven’t spoken with in years. A number of users have told me that their post visibility has been really weird there the last few days.

Facebook has just announced that it is creating a resource which shows users which Russian propaganda outlets they have liked or followed, in response to consumers’ newly manufactured demand to be protected from ideas and information that might make them less patriotic. It is unclear how “Russian propaganda” will be clearly defined and how inaccurate classification will be avoided.

Over the weekend, Google’s Eric Schmidt announced that the search engine giant will be working to hide articles by RT and Sputnik from users to protect them from “misinformation.” He announced this as a positive step while also bizarrely claiming that he is “strongly not in favour of censorship.”
