i am just a kitten and not a cognitive scientist of anything, so please forgive me if this is a silly question to which most people know the answer and i do not, but “can humans rotate shapes in their heads at all?”
because it seems like maybe you can’t.
and that sure would explain a lot about the kinds of precedents you guys keep setting and how surprised you always seem when they get used for something you don’t like next time…
Anyone else remember when the Left was anti-war? 🤔
war is peace. violence against Russians is kindness
I do realise Facebook is for dummies. Something is seriously wrong with Facebook. I would urge anyone on it to get the hell off it and stay well away from this dangerous mind game. It serves no purpose. Go help an elderly neighbour, go donate time to counting birds in your back yard. Go find your life, Facebook is not it.
Been on the "Nextdoor" site.
There are middle-aged women in my English village, who are openly calling for the murder of Vladimir Putin, and for a brutal end to be made of him.
They would not normally dare to say these things. They'd fear the Policeman's knock on their doors.
Somehow, they've 'sensed' the climate of hysteria, and they know that they're safe to express their desires.
Their 'inner ugly' is being exposed. That person inside, the one that they are usually so careful to keep hidden.
It's amazing to observe this. Scary, tho.
Perhaps any keyboard warriors who utter such threats should be issued an engraved invitation to the frontlines along with the Facebook and Instagram employees who decided to sanction them.
I got spanked by twitter when posted I wanted to slap a guy in the face. He was spouting off and promoting full term abortions. They said I was promoting violence. 🤦🏼♀️
Yet anyone who called corona the "Wuhan flu" was inciting violence against Chinese people. But it's okay to incite violence against all Russians now. Oooookay.
Just got 30 days off FB for calling Saudis “Barbarians”. Meanwhile I cannot fathom what I’m reading on VK about what’s really going on in Ukraine. It’s really really bad even if only half true. The people behind all of this are purposefully trying to destroy America and no it’s not Putin either. God help us.
So utterly reprehensible. The worst kind of humans run these tech platforms.
It's okay to express the currently approved narrative, just pay attention so you know when to switch.
Ethnic Russian, here, US citizen since 2001. They want to do violence against me? Okay, then. May not work out well in real life as opposed to social media. Real humans (and cats, of course), tend to defend themselves when attacked.
Two minutes hate, sponsored by Zuckerberg
By now If you have not quit these state propaganda platforms for good then you’re part of the problem.
So disillusioned at this point. Over the past two years I have come to question the last sixty.
Fuckerberg is calling for genocide. Should be a class action lawsuit by Russians to take down fakebook. Fuckerberg should be charged with criminal liability for any harm to them.
Wow, its the "2 minutes hate" of the online era. Ridiculous. What's next, will they ban Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky on Spotify? Wait... don't tell me...
They've been doing this to women for the last 5 years at least. And anybody else that they label a 'TERF' a word that has an interesting etymology I must say.
Is this a bad joke? Is it April Fool's day already?
This is a repeat of the George Floyd playbook narrative, where you overlook the sins of the transgressors, elevate him and demonize anyone that disagrees with the ongoing narrative.
Ukraine good, Russia bad. It’s okay to overlook the Ukraine aggressive, militaristic actions and killing of the people in Donetsk and Luhansk since 2014, targeting them because they are ethnically Russian, speak Russian and want to be free of Ukraine, but bad for Russia to support and defend Donetsk and Luhansk, and oppose Ukraine joining NATO, effectively putting military bases and offensive weapon on Russia’s front porch.
Let’s have internment camps for everyone of Russian descent. There is precedent for such a policy, after all.
Perhaps someone could start a social media campaign advocating this. I’m sure the big tech companies will make a “spirit-of-the-policy allowance” here too.
Also in the memo to FB and IG moderators is the temporary allowance for praise of Ukrainian neo-nazi group Azov Regiment... but only in the context of them killing Russians.
I am going to stop with my daily question to the ether "Have we gone mad?"
If you are on FB or IG - seriously what the heck is wrong with you? Do you have Stockholm Syndrome? Get help.
Are we also allowed to support other "freedom fighters" elsewhere, like Canada? Or are guns and bombs and financial donations only allowed to support CIA-created regimes?
The political machinery in the US has so thoroughly divided the public into teamthinking “us’s and “thems” that even egregious examples of wrongdoing will be excused and actually cheered on by the group in power. Murderous hatred is what Facebook and instagram are encouraging and cultivating. Like that won’t become a thing within our own borders? Citizens excusing and cheering on the murderous persecution of fellow citizens? We’ve had a taste of it already with the more violent of the BLM riots.
And the result of houses being divided against themselves is just what Jesus said…
It confirms they are not operating from anything but tribal identity.
seriously? really? Still I shouldn't be surprised, not with the Biden collective in power, psychopaths gotta psychopath.
Did no one watch Princess Bride? SMH you never get involved in a land war in Eurasia!
Some pigs are more equal than others.
Thought experiment... what happens when this insane mob decides they need to find God? But instead of worshipping a loving Jesus, they go Catholic Boosted and get ultra pious about rituals. Ultimately they need: a group for belonging, stringent rules and a way to feel morally superior and cancel others.
And President Trump is still banned on Facebook until 2023.
But noooo, they’re not propaganda organs.
This is where the virtue-signal arms-race leads.
The increasingly illiberal humanities professoriate has had a negative effect on several generations already light on critical thinking skills and history. The post modern nihilism that hollows out morality while fostering the dehumanization of races, classes, ethnicities, and political enemies - has marched through the institutions while leaving too many of the general populace in ovine conformance and compliance. In blunt terms, the only difference between Putin's methods and the US State Department is that he has used conscripts and warfare to likely accomplish what the US did with 9 billion dollars of graft and corruption (Ukrainian regime change). That has nothing to do with the average Russian. If driving Russia into the arms of Xi Jinping was the goal, we couldn't be more correct in our strategy.
Genuine question for those in the know since I'm not on social media:
Did Facetwittergram censor calls for violence against the unvaccinated?
The bizarre stuff that these Tech companies are doing makes me wonder: is this crazy stuff (rampant censorship, encouraging violence on a national foe, etc.) being directed by US government? Is it possible these guys are being “held hostage” by the Feds? Because I really don’t see how they thought encouraging violence on their platform isn’t going to present big legal trouble.
And don’t get me started on how/why anyone would take down an Oliver Stone documentary from Youtube.
Yeah, they're just a platform, not a publisher. Got it.
The order to proles to begin their "two minutes of hate"
What is wrong with you?!!
Putin is the crazy megalomaniac, Russians are people just like you and I. Their government is feeding them a bunch of propaganda and half truths and some twisted stuff just like our governments are doing about the safety and efficacy of 'vaccines'.
Grow up, violence never solves the big problem.
Putin will be so upset. He would NEVER allow for violence against his citizenry. I'm sure he's not rubbing his hands together right now and saying, "Ah, so now we don't even have to invent our propaganda; let us be sure every Russian has access to the most anti-Russian sentiments on social media."
As long as it fits their narrative, or should I say Cattitude??
It’s OK because they’re white.
Is this for real.... The place really has gone stark raving mad.. I'm starting to think it would be best if we all stop using the standard social platforms (fb, IG, SC, TT etc). Personally, I deleted TT and only use fb messenger for messages, but very soon I'm deleting all of them and trasitioning to other platforms...
Maybe we should start a "Hatebook" where everybody can call for anything against anyone as long as it is nasty. I fully expect the largest target on there to be politicians, followed by experts, followed by bosses. :D And nobody would need to pretend to be a "nice person" when getting rid of their frustrations.
I'm not sure this is constructive in the grand scheme of things though.
You know what? I have a horrible feeling that this mind-fuckery is intentional... an attempt (mostly successful) to make us commit cognitive atrocities, the same way that torturers make their victims watch, and sometimes connive at, the torture of people they care about, just to destroy their souls.
If not intentional and conscious, then certainly an instinctive knowledge of how to fuck people over and destroy any semblance of sovereignty, self-respect, dignity...
Holy shit! Reality as I've known it my entire life seems to have just been theatrical production. Since about 2015 at least. And now the director is flipping the script, almost daily. This is madness! I thought that the corporations and world governments moved quickly in lockstep during covid. But the speed at which they've completely isolated Russia, and built their narrative on the Ukraine is astounding. And so many people are just eating it up, with the attention span of.......something with a really short attention span! I wake up everyday wondering what new crazy shit I'll see or hear. It would be amusing if it wasn't so frightening. Just kidding, it's pretty amusing. Stay gold.
wtf? Hard to believe this is real, but seems to be.
I can recall when we had but one standard of justice, for all. I'm getting pretty old.
I worked with a guy who could look at a printed, very complex chemical and rotate the thing in his head. He would just look at it and point out the incorrect stereochemistry of xyz center on the backside of the print, immediately. Never met anyone else who could do that.
Not that my story has anything to do with your post.
Are we still living in a cartoon world? Oh ok, I’ll go back under my rock….
Reason has absolutely nothing to do with what's going on...
