A closer look at the propaganda outfit at the centre of the pressure campaign against Substack.
They will come for Substack sooner or later. The clock is ticking. We will have to build a new Internet eventually. We should call it Parallel, with no connections to the legacy net. Completely autonomous and decentralized, powered only by users around the world. Surveillance and datamining proof with a monetary tokenized system that adds value to content based on attention-labor. Censorship resistant would mean that nations would have to go full North Korea to shut it down by literally shutting down the power grid. It would drive governments mad! That's the future we should be building.
Imagine the halfwit making a monthly donation to this outfit. Prince Charles probably does.
Thank GOD they cocked up the vax so badly. Biggest whitepill for me.
Imagine where'd we be with autonomy, passports, speech, all of it -- if they'd actually cooked up safe and effective potions.
All due sympathy for the maimed and slaughtered. Truly they took one for the team after all.
As eugyppius is the favorite of about 15 substacks I read, 10 I subscribe to, I hope he does make millions. He offers a treasure chest of truth, intelligence, and hope. In fact now that I think of it, the opposite of hate. You mr imran, on the other hand offer nothing that has any value at all. The same old lies all dressed up in a mantle of arrogance..nose in the air, feet in the mud cowering at the thought of debate with those clearly your intellectual superiors.
I was all worked up and ready to launch The Center For Countering The Center For Countering Digital Hate. But after this brilliant summary, I've changed my mind. Imagine being this guy! Imagine prostituting yourself intellectually to the point where you are willing to join the cabal recommending experimental gene therapies which don't work and kill/maim people just to make a buck. Instead, I am seriously considering launching The Center For Creating Real Jobs For People Desperate Enough to Work at the Center For Countering Digital Hate. Hang in there, Imran, help is on the way.
Language purist that I am, I have come to (somewhat) calmly accept that the definitions of "misinformation" and "disinformation," as with the word "literally," have come to mean the exact opposite of what they once meant.
It comes as no surprise to me that the "center" run by Imran Ahmed, CEO, and his associates, Ahmed and Ahmed, lumps together "misinformation" with "hate." The woke argument includes an underlying assumption that facts = hate speech. What is important isn't the truth or the (mis)information that could help you make determinations about what is true. What is important is that you are exposed to the pre-determined conclusions so frequently (and in such high places-- the university! the legacy newsroom! the presidency!) that they begin to seem true, logical, and unassailable.
This post is misinformation - Imran is one of eight identical brothers. To keep things simple they all use the same name. Stop spreading lies.
I laughed so much at the "our people" picture, 8 pictures of the same guy, all written "CEO" under it. How full of yourself you must be.... His linked video has 188 views, while Robert Malone on Joe Rogan podcast has more than 25 millions views I think. These people probably believe they are on the "right side" of history and will be remembered as heroes, but no, people are waking up day by day and the covid woke will be humiliated and mostly forgotten.
I've never been as convinced that the entire concept of "scientific consensus" is absolute dogshit and should arouse suspicion and mistrust whenever it's uttered.
Science without Philosophy is worthless.
Your last two paragraphs. THIS. It's what I've been saying for over a year now. These TV dinner experts are enjoying their fame a tad too much - it's a bad sign when you know their fricken names. Here in Canada it's people like Boguch, Furness, Juni, and a few others (mostly from McGill and the Univ. of Toronto) like an infectious disease doctor who I hold in special contempt named Oughton from Montreal - who continue to fray the civil order. As recent as December Furness was STILL calling for lockdowns. Juni wants passport expansion. NEVER presenting evidence for their continued insidious cowardly madness. These people aren't scientists. They're propagandist opportunists preying on people's fears. They only see things through the prism of Covid and nothing else. Essentially, they're using Nero's fiddle. My distrust of epidemiologists and their utterly disastrous recommendations is such that I consider their 'germ chasing' to be one notch above astrology. No offence to astrologers. I'm sure there's value in it somehow, someway but I'm too ignorant to think more of it than that. I digress. Cheers.
As I have said before elsewhere, there is simply no 'misinformation' . There is only 'information', which may be factual or not and/or subject to debate/interpretation. The term 'misinformation' is short for 'misleading information' which implies you need to be 'led' in the first place. Well, no you don't. Unless you WANT to be a sheep.
The Our People section gave me a much needed laugh as I sit here on my Coronavirus convalescent bed getting natural, long lasting antibodies.
You are a brave man, Eugyppius. I heard that "noticing things on the internet" has been illegal throughout Europe for some years now. Soon the U.S. will be fully cloaked under the same regime.
I'm imagining how grotesque the Eight-Fold Ahmed would be as a mythological creature of lore: 8 heads, 16 arms on a tiny little body with only a single leg that kicks itself in the ass as it tries to walk.
Corona has not fried his brain, but is just a business opportunities for the wokerista of the Western world. It was anti-racism yesterday, today it is Corona, tomorrow it will be climate again, or whatever issue is showered by government and WFE money.
The last thing I expected from the title was to read a work of comedy - thank you for that.
And a gem of a writeup!
Congrats Ahmed - next job can be CEO of Loser, Inc
