Hey guys. I am thinking of starting a series on medium regarding how many govt policies sold as good measures actually turn indians into collateral damage.

It will consist of policies for agri, education, the recent citizenship debate, extreme police violence, adhar etc.

Thinking of researching well before writing it. Don't have time right now. Will start after feb 2.

Can anyone help?

Please boost.

Finally found a good use of google translator. I am just going to translate something about god in Arabic and post it to piss off sanghis.

Here is one example.

لا إله في هذا العالم
la illah fi hadha alealam

It means ' there is no god in this world'. Which is my belief as an atheist.

But since it starts with 'la illah' sanghis won't know the difference.

Btw if anyone says 'la illah illa allah'. I dont have any problem. Every citizen has right to have their own faith.

It was just announced that mstdn.jp (200,348 accounts) and mastodon.cloud (59162 accounts) are shutting down at the end of June! that is more then 6% of fediverse accounts disappearing overnight.

I would like to do anything in my power to figure out how to prevent this from happening.

Given how the BJP govt. in India is pushing the mass surveillance programs starting from Aadhar to Aarogya Setu, it occurred to me that for such mass surveillance systems to work, i.e to gain mass among the masses, the masses first need to have the means to get into the surveillance programs.

Now think about what BJP govt. has achieved with the help of Capitalists to lay infrastructure for those programs.

1. Some BJP allied company wanted to capture this opportunity to produce and sell low cost smartphone called "Freedom 251" and they terribly failed and it has become a flagship scam under this govt.
2. Govt. favoured Reliance JIO over any other telecom operator because Reliance had the capital and potential to lay foundations for nationwide infrastructure.
2. JIO offered free Internet for a while to attract huge user base towards them. Once a particular threshold was met, they had successfully acquired monopoly over the market.
3. To acquire new SIM and JIO Lyf phones people had to use their Aadhar Number.
4. Demonetization forced people to get the taste of digital payments systems like UPI, Google Pay, PayTM, etc., so they would get used to it.
5. Too much of capital was redirected to Fintech companies to build systems that efficiently tracks the people
6. Use pandemic emergencies like COVID-19 as an opportunity to push another nationwide surveillance application called Aarogya Setu.

They are laying infrastructure for mass surveillance and they are getting there faster. They need feedback loops to keep the masses doped, all the data that they receive from all the above services is a powerful tool in the hands of this govt. to maintain the status quo.

We shall not go silent when #SurveillanceCapitalism grows in India.

Everywhere far-right, neo-fascist movements are on the rise, you can find Steve Bannon helping behind the scenes, using his billionaire friends to fund them

I'm slightly curious, would anyone pay me to present something or edit/make a video or something similar? I'm fairly experienced having done Youtube for a while, been on a media course for a nearly a year and done hospital radio for well over a year

I also use totally free and open source software for my work if that's a concern and I'll do it for a pretty low price since impossible just looking for work on the side

Correction:

The BJP needs to learn governance

The Congress needs to learn how to be an effective opposition.

India’s problems are linked to fundamental flaw in both the BJP and the Congress:

The BJP needs to learn governance

The Congress needs to learn to win elections

@abj @Vishsai @ionhandshaker Absolutely agree. The amount of communal hatred on media is reaching beyond critical mass. The next communal pogrom in India will be fueled by corona virus rumours.

Abhinav boosted

Oh and ya, everything is political, so it'll be foolish to think that this isn't contributing to their technocratic politics.

The current government has repeatedly divided the country over religious grounds and spread hatred with gusto. There actions don't instill confidence that personal data captured via the Setu app won't be utilised for mass surveillance. Let's not give into their false promises.

The main problem with the Setu app is of trust. What has this government done in the past six years which will make me trust them that they won't be using personal data for nefarious reasons like manipulation of the electorate or religious profiling or targeting dissent?

I went for a job interview today.

The interviewer asked me, “What’s your biggest weakness?”

I said, “Answering the semantics of a question but ignoring the pragmatics.”

The interviewer asked, “Could you give me an example?”

I said, “Yes, I could.”

I'm really tempted to give BSD a go, anyone have any experiences or recommendations?

Can’t compare Tabligh with RSS, it has always been known for shunning politics for all its faults

A friend's instagram account apparently got hacked, and their username, email and password changed.

Has anyone experienced this before? According to Instagram, the old email account should have received an email about that name/email change, which didn't seem to happen.

I can't make sense of how they managed to hack that account. Any pointers appreciated!

[Thanks for Boosting]
