“Emotion recognition systems have been installed in Xinjiang, a region in far western China where an estimated 1m mostly Muslim minorities are held in internment camps.”
Just watched a movie last night about emotion being illegal in a dystopian future. This is the first step! The movie was Equilibrium (2002) starring Christian Bale.
A long series of blogposts titled "The Manufacturing of Greta Thunberg"
Very interesting for those that wanna get to the bottom of Greta and the climate change tomfoolery that is afoot.
(At the top of each page, there are links to each part of the series so you can navigate through them all.)
An excellent post in r/AskHistorians answering a question that essentially asked, “Was it really the Reagan Administration that released mental patients into the streets?”
This was discussed recently on the show regarding current homelessness crises building up. Great historical answer here: https://reddit.com/r/AskHistorians/comments/cuwdzk/_/ey1ualt/?context=1
And for JCD and others wondering about the suspicion of having both a physical copy and a kindle copy: I’m a voracious reader and I have like 600 paperbacks with a digital edition for all of them that are available - whether pirated or purchased via Kindle. It’s believable. I often think about which copy to bring wherever I’m going. Physical or kindle or just iPhone with the kindle app. 🤷🏻♂️
For those wondering about the Ghislaine Maxwell Amazon account leaving reviews: two screenshots, the latest about the Ted Gup spook book and her first review about Fifty Shades of Grey (Book 3) from October 2012. Linked to the Amazon review profile as well for those interested in combing through it: https://www.amazon.com/gp/profile/amzn1.account.AEI4E66VGJAOZIUFDV5E2NSL42IQ/ref=cm_cr_dp_mb_gw_tr?ie=UTF8
Q: “Why can a business legally refuse my cash as a payment?”
A: Legal tender laws only apply to debts paid to creditors. Cash in exchange for goods and services is excluded from these laws.
Gab.com’s Twitter blocked my buddy’s anti-pedo account for pointing out that pedophiles congregate on their platform. In that realm, there is a serious debate that pedophilia is a civil rights issue and pedophiles have free speech and /should/ have free rein to have adult-child relations with impunity because children “can consent.” Yes, they’re serious.

A connection between Jeffrey Epstein and AG William Barr? At least his father.

I’d like to share with you all a No-Agenda-esque repository of “open your mind” documentaries https://thoughtmaybe.com
Anyone a fan of Adam Curtis documentaries? He made (1) The Century of the Self, (2) Power of Nightmares, and (3) HyperNormalisation. Those are the ones I’m aware of at least. You can find em on YouTube. Currently rewatching the first. It’s all about propaganda, hyperconsumerism, Edward Bernays, etc. https://youtu.be/eJ3RzGoQC4s
