    Good grief - now Facebook may soon join in the anti-vax banning.

    From Mark Zuckerberg goes all-in with the deadly vaccine industry in sweeping new plan to censor ALL posts that question Big Pharma’s vaccine dogma (NaturalNews.com):

    ==============
    At the request of California Leftist, Democratic cult leader, and American traitor Adam Schiff, Facebook has announced that it may soon implement new policies to actively censor content on its platform that goes against the official narrative that all vaccines are 100 percent “safe and effective.”

    Blaming several recent outbreaks of measles on the prevalence of “anti-vaccine information” online, Schiff believes that it’s now Facebook’s job to actively steer users towards only pro-vaccine content in order to keep people “protected.”

    “There is strong evidence to suggest that at least part of the source of this trend is the degree to which medically inaccurate information about vaccines surface (sic) on the websites where many Americans get their information,” Schiff is quoted as saying, providing absolutely none of the supposedly “strong evidence” that he says proves that disease outbreaks are caused by people reading alternative information about vaccines on Facebook.

    “The algorithms which power these services are not designed to distinguish quality information from misinformation or misleading information, and the consequences of that are particularly troubling for public health issues,” he added, inferring that the “all vaccines are safe and effective” narrative represents the only “quality information” about vaccines.
    Facebook capitulates to Schiff’s demands, says it’s working on new ways to “combat the problem”

    In response to Schiff’s poorly-worded letter of warning to Facebook Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook reportedly released a statement in response, indicating that the company is “exploring additional measures to best combat the problem.”

    These “measures” apparently include “reducing or removing this type of content from recommendations, including Groups You Should Join, and demoting it in search results, while also ensuring that higher quality and more authoritative information is available.”

    For related news, be sure to check out VaccineJihad.com and VaccineHolocaust.org.
    YouTube actively demoting videos that tell the other side of the vaccine story

    Google, which also received the same letter from Schiff, did not immediately respond with a statement like Facebook did. However, the Google-owned YouTube platform last month took action to demote videos that promote “misinformation” about vaccines, using the example of videos that promote “a phony miracle cure for a serious illness.”

    Keep in mind that Schiff, the ringleader in all this, is the same tool bag that’s been parroting the “Russian collusion” conspiracy theory any chance he gets. Despite a total lack of evidence that the Trump campaign in any way conspired with Vladimir Putin to “steal” the 2016 election, Schiff continues to tout it as though it were undeniable fact.

    And now with vaccines, Schiff wants all Americans to be forced to consume only pro-vaccine propaganda, citing the “dangers” of online free speech. It’s an Orwellian nightmare that Schiff and his fellow Democrats believe is necessary to promote the “greater good” – even though numerous outbreaks in the past occurred in populations that were fully vaccinated.
    ==============

    Is there a vaccine for tyrannical stupidity? If so, Adam Schiff needs a booster shot of it badly.

    Twitter has blocked traffic to the website of our mgray, cutting links to his site from 7000 on a good day, down to an unbelievable 3. See Post #8733, Post #8743, and Post #8746, on the main Q thread.

    "They've lost control of the 'Harm Principle' . . . " - Dr Stuart Waiton.


    In this chat with Richie Allen yesterday, he hit the nail on the head.

    For the quote and explanation, you only need to listen to the first two and a half minutes of this recording.

    Yes, just 17 mins in total, and recommended. As Norman says, the 'harm principle' is explained by Dr Stuart Waiton, a criminologist, in the opening 2:30.

    My paraphrase: for a long time, the 'Harm Principle' in law referred clearly to actual harm, and was very well-defined. Meaning, if you threatened to physically injure someone, that would be an offense. (And a threat like that would be removed from social media, too.)

    Dr Waiton cites the example that it was fine to advocate homosexuality, for instance, as private sexual issues don't physically harm anyone else. (And, equally importantly, nor would any critical opinion of another's sexual preferences.)

    But now, there's a slippery slope in play, where the potential 'harm' about which censorship decisions are made has now expanded in a much less clearly defined way to include emotional harm — even to the extent of possibly causing merely very mild offense.

    And that's what the 'hate speech' thing is all about, of course, which is another slippery slope with no visible end in sight — precisely because it's almost impossible to define in legal terms.

    I don't know what others here think about NLP, but my view is that it has a lot to answer for.

    I think NLP is responsible for a widespread inversion to victimhood identity. Although it's not blazoned across the front door, it relies entirely on the 'Harm Principle' as it's self justification. Consequently, everything becomes identified as a 'harm'. From harm comes 'victim', and progressively, victimhood identity, all by the back door, and probably never once discussed as an up front topic by the NLP advocates/practitioners ( unless there is an inner circle, which I have sometimes wondered about).

    So here we are, in a societal race to the bottom of victimhood. Who can be the biggest victim and slap their social/political opponents the hardest with it.

    It's going to take us over a cliff if we don't dump it and get tougher skins again.

    You haven’t studied the same NLP I have!! From your description, I do not recognise it at all.

    NLP is only a method of using language to detect someones ways of using language giving away a personnality profile, a perceptual profile, or the way you use language to manipulate for example.

    It is an excellent tool for better communication, for helping in therapies, for avoiding manipulation.

    It is also a tool for marketing, sales, and other venues of the kind.

    It never makes anyone a victim as such. People do and some manipulators use it unconsciously most of the time. But some are consciously using it such as marketers.

    And marketers use colors, music etc. As well, which are not NLP.

    The over emotional reactions to perceived insults has nothing to do with NLP and everything to do with global neurosis. What creates this neurosis? Or this self centeredness? Or stupidity while we are at it???

    That makes zero hedge, and Alex Jones, automatically interesting to log on their site.

    What makes me cringe for myself is that they banned zero hedge even on private messaging on messenger. This is the ultimate of spying and NO FREE SPEECH allowed.
