Facebook locked me out

I guess, it had to happen, sooner or later.  Facebook locked me out.  Here is what they told me about why.  They told me nothing other than what is in the following: That is downright Orwellian.  At any rate, without Facebook giving me any warning, Facebook locked me out.  I can no longer log in.  All that happens is that I get the notification shown above.  It took only seconds after I had posted my response to Lorne Winsor, and I was locked out. I supposedly have a way of telling Facebook that I am not happy about what they did to me, mainly because their “community standards” do not … Continue reading

Internet censorship affects all, censors and censored

Providers of search engines and of social media have the power to influence, controls and steers what all of the people in the world must think and talk about in their everyday activities. Such power vastly exceeds that of Big Brother described by George Orwell in ‘1984’. Continue reading

Rente retten

Rente retten – Dieser Auftrag einer neuen Kommission von zehn Experten macht Claudia Kirn Sorgen, und sie (mit allen anderen Rentnern in Deutschland, wie auch in allen anderen entwickelten Staaten) ist berechtigt sich darüber Sorgen zu machen. “Die deutsche Gesellschaft überaltert, vor allem wegen der stark steigenden Lebenserwartung,” stellt der Spiegel Artikel fest.  Nee, wirklich?  Ist das Problem nicht, dass nicht mehr genügend Arbeitnehmer produziert werden oder dass sie ungenügende Steuern zahlen, weil die Arbeitsstellen nach Südost Asien and andere Länder exportiert wurden? Was die stark steigende Lebenserwartung angeht, die Behauptung ist leider stark übertrieben, da die Realität sehr stark von den übertriebenen Erwartungen abweicht. Nach dem Institute for Health Metrics … Continue reading

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor, …Bureaucrat, Bureaucracies are forever

(2017 words) Last updated 2018 10 12  Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor, Rich Man, Poor Man, Beggar Man, Thief, Doctor, Lawyer, Merchant, Chief (ahem, that is, bureaucrat).  It is not so much the politicians who drive the evolution towards censorship and control by the state. The bureaucrats are the main movers of it. The politicians come and go. Bureaucracies are forever. Bureaucracies have their own agendas, powerful ones, all-pervasive and intrepid. They are the ones who make the necessary things (and many others besides) happen. Politicians have some influence. Most of them just come along for the ride. The bureaucrats are far more numerous and have much more power that is always … Continue reading

Single-gender classes

1st part of the multi-part series: ‘Single-Gender Classes’ Index Introduction Gender Under Re-Construction – Social Justice Warriors at Work Seven genders – Why not more? Gender Re-education creates fluency in Gender-Newspeak Next to come: The unacceptable solution – Return to simplicity and Single-sex Classes for Two Sexes Once upon a time, single-gender classes were thought to be important.  Once-upon a time they were the rule, when they were called boys-classes or -schools, and girls-classes or -schools, when things were still simple and there were thought (or claimed) to be only two sexes, but that changed. Single-sex classes (as they were at times called) were out, and co-ed classes were in.  Today, the … Continue reading

FB censorship under pretense of unsolicited help

FB censorship in the guise of help no one asked for is still censorship.  FB may claim it is not, but it is one of the worst sort.  It is insidious.  FB censorship and censorship by Google, so as to direct and control what information we should get access to and even what we are to think or be concerned about,  is a reality that should be of great concern to lovers of freedom of expression and of freedom of choice.  There are growing concerns about that. Decades, about 80 years ago, prescient, those concerns were expressed in this: “In the end the Party would announce that two and two … Continue reading

Censorship, FB joined Google in collaboration

Censorship by Google and Facebook is a reality that should be of great concern to lovers of freedom of expression and of freedom of choice.  It made me glad to see that Tucker Carlson (an American conservative political commentator for Fox News) and Mark Steyn (a Canadian author and political commentator) joined to discuss the social-media cartel’s increasing control of the Internet, and of ideas. Justice needs to be done in  describing the combined influence of Google and FB.  It is not merely deliberate censorship that rules all.  Some of it happens by accident or perhaps on account of opportunities, an unavoidable consequence of a society that transformed itself, from having conversations via … Continue reading

FB censorship, threat of, causes concern

FB censorship exists, it happens, and its direction and methods should concern us.  It makes me wonder and a bit apprehensive, but of the relatively infrequent announcements and advisories that FB addresses to me now and then, there was one I read this morning. I did not copy it, but I remember some of what it contained, a hint, a faint impression of a threat of censorship.  It made me feel apprehensive and confused.  I have no idea why FB sent me what appears to be a reminder.  Checking the FB Community Standards against what I have been trying to do all along is no help.  I checked them before … Continue reading
