Why would anyone think that there aren't people looking to push their politics on children via video games?

Entertainment in all forms are being used to push narratives that support foreign policies of various countries, and those foreign policies are driven by those who make money from conflict.

When I was a kid, we didn't have videogames, so the vector was kids cartoons like Rocky and Bullwinkle and Roger Ramjet - and if you look at them through an adult's eyes it's OBVIOUS these were politically motivated propaganda productions to show the Soviets as Evil, and the US as the Heroes. Much like TV shows such as "Homeland" (which receives funding from governments interested in portraying Iran negatively).

When we started getting video games, we started getting Nazi games, and are STILL getting Nazi games - whilst we have countries out there today involved in ethnic cleansing and murder that would make far more relevant subjects if the point was to 'improve' awareness of the evil in the world in young adults.. but obviously, it's about portraying certain people as evil and others as good. What better way to groom future generations for the meatgrinder that is VERY profitable endless conflict.

Facebook is Cancer - Caught Facebook trying to 'influence the election' Oct 6, 2021, 16:44

Couple of years back, with the run up to the Hillary/Donald election I caught out the Facebook editorial team 'trending' articles and jamming them into people's feeds for two news sites from lapsed domain names, with zero traffic according to alexa webstats.

A Washington PR firm had picked up the domains and had tried to hide the domain registration details, but in typical incompetent fashion when they grabbed the lapsed domains initially that sounded 'newsy' they registered them as you normally would. Even though they hid the domain details later DNS transfer history revealed who they were.

With all the info in hand I hit the accounts of both the fake news sites facebook accounts and within minutes both facebook accounts went dark.

Handed the information over to The Intercept. Facebook were forced to admit that their editorial team was manually marking articles as Trending in a public statement shortly afterwards.

Interestingly, this was EXACTLY the kind of thing the 'New Knowledge' scammers claimed Russia was doing. But that ended up being New Knowledge running ads via a Russian PR agency, then using those ads as "PROOF" Russia was trying to influence the election.

It's time Facebook was destroyed. They're not a social media platform any more, they're a manipulation, disinformation and surveillance platform willing to do the dirty work of whoever will pay them. "The Social Dilemma" danced around one very important piece of information "WHO" was paying for all the advertising. It's clear they were not free to say and were hoping people would pick up on it.

Facebook are doing everything Western Media has been accusing other countries of.

it's simply stupid for anyone to think we have any privacy in any of our electronic activity any more.

short of laws that explicitly forbid harvesting of our activity and the inclusion of backdoors we never will.

Seeing that WE have become the product and that entire industries now rely on spying on us and that this privatised spying has been leveraged to get around what laws there were in place (TURBULENT and TURMOIL programs for example where they harvest ALL of our internet traffic, inject malware into our systems through modifying traffic, and using the malware they injected they harvest data that we hold on our computers that we never intend to transmit or store on the internet - and then claim that unless they retrieve that data from their data store it doesn't count as surveillance) we're essentially fucked.

As revealed by Wikileaks, the NSA/CIA have been keeping the malware injection vectors (ie, flaws in software we use) secret so that TURBULENT and TURMOIL can continue to use them, instead of being responsible and advising vendors of them - pretending that these vectors aren't usable by other bad actors and aren't a security risk to all.

Even when we have companies attempting to provide us services like Proton mail, there's always something that can be used to force them to capitulate and comply.

yep - you can see it in all aspects of anything related to WW2 Germany.

I want the facts, not what some person not alive when all of this was going down, to add colorful language - because frequently it's aimed at completely misrepresenting what occurred to fit their own slant (often political) rather than history.

Seems that websites that can tell us what is going on from the Iranian perspective (and hence eyewitness accounts) are being taken down.

We already know the US State Department has huge influence in Google (See When Google Met Wikileaks) and that they see Google as a tool for regime change.

Another great example of why any one country having control of the DNS root servers for the Internet is a very bad thing.

It seems that anything that challenges the information domination of the surveillance friendly big data companies like Facebook and Twitter is deemed for 'Trump Fans' - instead of 'Privacy Fans'.

I'd just like my old internet back where we used to have privacy and the worst thing we had to worry about were cookies..

I wonder how far we are until there will be outright 'Authorised Information' and 'Authorised Computing'.

God knows people are treating organisations with a track record of lying, lying and lying some more as the sole reliable sources of information. Now we're just seeing lockdowns of alternative platforms that are not part of the great manipulation and surveillance network, in the cause of saving all of us from idiots. Because, you know, only idiots want to use surveillance and suppression free platforms.

Can't wait to see what activism will be deemed 'hateful ideologies' to suppress evidence of things like evidence of ethnic cleansing in Palestine (as has already been done on Facebook).

Expect embedded thought police similar to those at facebook.

Ah, the accusations about China and Huawei that turned out to be complete falsehoods right?

When Snowden released the evidence that the NSA had gone rogue and the mainstream media (ever the servant of government) blasted us with "Heartbleed Bug" that was in fact an encryption backdoor it became bloody obvious that there are shenanigans going on in US products.

Then the IPSEC protocol's NDA for the developers timed out and we found out it was backdoored too.

This new cold war narrative which is really a turf battle over digital surveillance is just stupid policy from Intelligence Services Dinosaurs that think that a backdoor only works for the good guys.

That said, I don't see this initiative working simply because some countries have shown they are incapable of acting in good faith - even to their own citizens ... eh Mr Clapper? The idea is nice though.

As far as i can tell, the whole US war with China manufactured comms is because China wouldn't insert NSA backdoors into their products.

so Facebook's internet service will essentially turn the internet into a cable tv service, where content is controlled by facebook, and by extension, people like The Atlantic Council.

we need a new peer to peer secure internet.

We have a wetlands sanctuary nearby and swans are being run over constantly by speeding jerks.

Only thing that seems to slow people down are speedbumps but our local council doesn't want to spend the money.

This smacks of the Starforce DRM debacle.

No vendor should be installing ANYTHING that interferes with what is running on a person's computers.

What an utterly idiotic and ignorant approach by the vendor.
