Tom Valovic – When I heard that Facebook had changed its name to Meta, I was reminded of the aphorism: “A leopard doesn’t change its spots.” But in this case, there’s more to the name change than meets the eye: a strategic “vision” of the future and an overly powerful, profit-hungry corporation’s misguided attempt to shape human destiny.
Leo Hohmann – Welcome to the ‘metaverse’: A strange new world where the same billionaire globalist elites who destroyed the lives of millions using a pandemic as their main battering ram, will now try to entice them into a fake utopia created by AI and computer algorithms.
Alexandra Bruce – The Truth Factory suspects that something deeper is afoot with the recent de-platforming and demonetization of numerous accounts belonging to Conservative pundits on Facebook. She takes a look at the history of Facebook to find out what is going on.
She reminds us of a DARPA project called LifeLog, which tracked users’ browsing, chat and banking histories – plus the books and magazines users had read, plus television watched – plus geolocation!
Allum Bokhari – Silicon Valley inspires utopian thinking. After revolutionising everything from the media to communications to taxi services, progressive elites in the Bay Area are now eyeing up government and politics, wondering how they can “disrupt” both. Will American politics survive their delusions of grandeur?
The latest billionaire buffoon is Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook. Having noticed that Jack Dorsey is out-doing him in the realm of leftist political whackery, the social media kingpin has begun to wear his progressivism on his sleeves. Facebook’s users — far more numerous than Twitter’s — are sure to suffer.
Recently, we reported that Zuckerberg reprimanded a number of Facebook employees who crossed out “Black Lives Matter” slogans and replaced them with “All Lives Matter” on the company walls. You’d think that a liberal like Zuckerberg would appreciate a message of discrimination being replaced with a message of inclusiveness, but I suppose that sort of thinking went out of fashion with Martin Luther King, Jr.
