But now, social media such as Facebook and Twitter are being used in imperialist military and mafia-style murder tactics against sovereign nations such as Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and now Syria. They are also being used to influence American elections and providing a new form of surveillance and information control.
In keeping with the Brave New World model, one communications scholastic refers to social media as "participatory surveillance."|
"...Online social networking is anchored in surveillance practices. This gives us an opportunity to challenge conventional understandings of surveillance that often focus on control and disempowerment. In the context of online social networking, surveillance is something potentially empowering, subjectivity building and even playful--what I call participatory surveillance."|
Anders Albrechtslund, "Online Social Networking As Participatory Surveillance," 2008
Social media are a major part of the cabal's strategy of destroying workers worldwide through creating a false reality. Social media are contrived by sociopaths such as Mark Zuckerberg to create a counterfeit world that includes:
- A personal diary voluntarily made available for all to see and read
- A public orgy of thought- and emotion-pornography
- An open sewer of verbal excrescence
- Voluntary personal exposure to fascist agencies of surveillance and oppression
"Out of this anarchy, it suddenly became clear that what was governing the infinite monkeys now inputting away on the Internet was the law of digital Darwinism, the survival of the loudest and most opinionated. Under these rules, the only way to intellectually prevail is by infinite filibustering."|
Andrew Keen, The Cult of the Amateur
|| Social Media such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are being used by the capitalist cabal to foment fake revolutions in their imperialistic drive for regime change and wealth and resource plunder, as has already happened in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya, and is now being ramped up for Syria and Iran.|
Unsuspecting citizens worldwide are being duped into thinking that by participating in social media "initiatives" they can play a role in "exporting democracy" or "overthrowing suppressive regimes." All current "initiatives" are being funded, planned, and carried out by capitalist cabal fellow-travelers and paid operatives.
"Social media is any online media platform that provides content for users and also allows users to participate in the creation or development of the content in some way. In the social media arena, people are encouraged to participate with the content by sharing and commenting on the media. This is a relatively new idea in the content publishing world. Whereas newspapers, radio, and television are non-interactive user mediums, social media provides an atmosphere for consumers to participate with the content, writers, and other consumers." 1|

1 "The biggest difference between social media and traditional media is how the information is delivered and consumed. With traditional media one message is published through a one-way communication stream to the masses, whether through print or radio/television. After the message goes out it stops there, there is no further expansion of the message. Social media publishes a message through a two-way communication stream to an audience that has chosen in some way to receive information from that particular stream. This message can then garner a response from the audience to comment on the message, add to the message, and even share the message with others that may find it of interest. In this way the message continues to evolve and spread as it transmits through social channels." blackboxsocialmedia.com
