Politics: Amazon cryptofascism, Breitbart, Quillette
First, Amazon. Before I open up with this, I want to make this clear:
Amazon is cryptofascist in nature.
Not its every employee, mind. But it has hired Neo-Nazis in Germany in the past (until this was discovered):
They have also been mentioned by quillette
And they fund Breitbart:
THOUSANDS of corps dropped ads on Breitbart when they saw what they were funding -- not Amazon.
From the Amazon Web Services cloud:
The Proud Boys are the brutality of evil
Amazon Web Services is the middle management PR Banality of Evil.
Also: they use the word "governments", not "government", and are storing a LOT of government data on their cloud. OUR data, too, collected by Palantir and other groups
Bilderberg Meeting 2019 topics:
1. A Stable Strategic Order
2. What Next for Europe?
3. Climate Change and Sustainability
6. The Future of Capitalism
---> 8. The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence (!!!!!!!) <---
9. The Weaponisation of Social Media
10. The Importance of Space.
11. Cyber Threats
All of these subjects terrify me.
Palantir is there represented.
I am not.
Amazon and Palantir work together.
Palantir is fucked.
Who funded Palantir? Always: Follow the money.
Peter Thiel and In-Q-Tel contributed early on, and they're still working govt. contracts.
Peter Thiel is a Paypal connection
Palantir is considered a "disruptor" corporation, attracting:
$2.8 billion in funding
$20.5 billion valuation
$800 million Army contract
And military contracts may seem like less $$$, but government brings benefits and guaranteed long term contracts
Let us be clear: The fascists will not let them have much of anything.
They are opening their hands to people who will take everything and commit abuses.
They really think that they just need to work the system right, and spend ALL their twitter presence, practically, attacking leftists because they fear the loss of their economic base more.
They are worthless at best, actively stabbing us in the back at worst.
Though both are true -- they don't even see it.
That money infusion from Thrive Capital has an expected return. But more than that:
Just wanna say: These NDAs that In-Q-Tel has, all the details we aren't able to get information on -- this is frightening.
In-Q-Tel has its hands in a LOT of the internet.
And it's accumulating.
They were an early funder of Facebook, for instance. https://stpaulresearch.com/2018/03/29/revealed-facebooks-cia-connections/
@Vedia_Lupae "looking to close the credibility gap between Democrats and Republicans" (in that 2nd pic)
wtf?! Since when was it credible to become more like a bigoted despot?
@KitsuneAlicia The best thing I can make out, is that apparently her big idea is to bring in diplomats over cybersecurity issues and the like?
The argument that political diplomats will better understand the kinds of people that would steal data.
@Vedia_Lupae By what? Saying "Secrecy is good. Let's make things even less transparent to the American people and put even more of their data on our centralized servers in the name of safety."?
Because we already tried that and Facebook failed massively.
@Vedia_Lupae The answer is to *reduce* spying on people and the data they have stored on us and make all matters of public interest public, not put extra bars on the cages that keep us from it. Without the honeypot, the need to spy in the first place is gone.
But neither of these two capitalist despot parties will agree to that because their business models rely on the honeypots.
@KitsuneAlicia The real frightening thing is how much all that data is being centralized.
And Russia's already got fucked over for the same -- and I bet got their tech from the same companies. https://www.forbes.com/sites/zakdoffman/2019/07/20/russian-intelligence-has-been-hacked-with-social-media-and-tor-projects-exposed/#429c1a036b11
@KitsuneAlicia And where is the data stored? In an underground bunker?
Well, if Amazon's govt. servers are, maybe.
Where ARE the servers, actually?
Server run by the main developers of the project It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
