If you’re noticing a generally depressed or blackpilled feeling while scrolling Facebook, or maybe you’ve noticed a sort of addiction settling in: you’re not as productive, you’re neglecting important tasks and maybe even your friends and family, this might not be a coincidence. Facebook used to be a platform for users to connect with friends and family, however, many people have begun complaining about their “news feed.”
The news feed has recently changed to automatically revert to “top stories” in which most people notice they’re just seeing the same posts over and over again. While you can manually select “most recent” from your desktop app, you no longer have that feature on the mobile app and after a set amount of time, Facebook automatically reverts your feed back to “top stories.” Historically, users would just “wait out the glitches” after each update in hopes that Facebook will eventually fix it. Another recent “update” features a glitch in notifications while using the mobile app. You’re not seeing what your friends are saying; you can’t access your notifications from your mobile app, and if you want to use Facebook, you will only see what Facebook wants you to see. As of 2018, smartphone Facebook users were at 95.1% vs only 38.1% of people using desktop to access the app. In essence, you are no longer connecting with your friends and family organically via Facebook, especially if you’re using a mobile device and this is by design.
Think of this for a moment: Hypothetically, if one has access to a global userbase numbering in the billions, and you have their FULL ATTENTION, meaning, when people log on to Facebook and begin scrolling their feed, they are intentionally watching, reading, and consuming content – if you have access to that much attention on a global scale, access to billions of dollars, advertisers, users, other apps, etc, what is the very first thing any intelligent person or business would want to do? Make people do exactly what you want them to do.
Facebook staffers have already admitted that Facebook has a political agenda. Facebook has had access to our data and very personal information for over a decade. Facebook has nearly unlimited funds and the ability to employ people who are at the very TOP of their fields in data collection, psychology, advertising and legal counsel. There is virtually nothing to stop Facebook from using that data to manipulate its vast user database of literally billions of people. Globally. The program (tin foil hat moment) can cause depression, sow discontent, and influence suicidal or harmful thoughts in users. Imagine what Facebook can do since they can easily pinpoint who has the wrong political opinions.
They’ve already admitted to using the news feed to manipulate user’s emotions. In this video from The Joe Rogan Experience, Minds creator Bill Ottman explains how Facebook manipulated the user experience in 2014 – and, this is only what we’re aware of. Facebook has years of experience using targeted ads based on age, gender, location, affiliations and political leanings. Facebook further has access to your other apps by allowing you to login to applications with your Facebook login. The terms and conditions no one reads allows for this, creating a questionably legal loophole for Facebook to use your data in essentially any form they see fit, including custom tailoring your brainwashing every time you log in.
Let’s take this back to our mission, our movement and our political goals. As stated above, we’re all aware that Facebook has a political agenda, which is specifically adversarial to ours. This is why it was so laughable when we were told via mainstream news outletsthat Russia used fake accounts to “swing” the 2016 election. We know that the US government claims Russia used “trolls” to swing the presidential elections, but did Facebook really want to crack down on fake users after this investigation? Was Mueller’s investigation against Russia actually against Russia, or was it a backdoor attempt by the government to manipulate the way Facebook operates, stores, and focuses user data and consumption?
We know, and it’s a common complaint, that our sock accounts used to protect our identity from rabid leftists will get shut down immediately, sometimes without even violating the Facebook “terms and conditions.” It’s silly to assume that Facebook is unaware of our tactics to bypass the filters on duplicate accounts, and it’s silly to assume that Facebook is unaware of our vast network of users on its platform. What would be another method for Facebook to legally discriminate against a movement that is specifically in opposition to their own political goals? Psychological manipulation.
If Facebook really wanted to use your data for advertising income, wouldn’t we see more ads for counterculture and Dissident Right literature and products, especially in the case where some of our guys might have a Facebook page for their businesses? Why don’t we see more of those ads on our sidebars and in our news feeds? Because Facebook has so much money and resources, they actually don’t care about targeted advertising income. Facebook makes money off your data sold to multinational corporations who know that a Nationalist United States, or a Southern Nationalist Secession, does not bode well for profits and a globalist agenda. Facebook spent around $1.3 Million in lobbying funds to maintain their ability to collect biometric data on its users in 2017, and that’s only money that we know about.
The accessibility of Facebook and the fact that so many of us are using it to connect with each other makes it difficult to find an alternative platform for networking. Minds, while it has much more relaxed policies regarding censorship, is still in early stages, lacks a real private option, and has a very clunky user experience. The benefit to Minds is that it’s not sold out to multinational corporations yet and we’re able to freely share our content without threat of account suspension. Additionally, it lacks sufficient funds and user data to manipulate our emotional and psychological experience while we attempt to connect with our friends and network. Your blackpilled feeling might not be organic, and it might not be the fault of a “failing movement.” Step off Facebook for a while and look to alternate sources of networking instead of willingly sacrificing your data and mental health to a leviathan that wants to see us fail.
Take care of yourselves,
Oh, I'm a good old Rebel, now that's just what I am; For this "Fair Land of Freedom" I do not give a damn! I'm glad I fit against it, I only wish we'd won, And I don't want no pardon for anything I done.
