Philosophy, Religion & Society / The Great Reset

Let's talk about the globalist plan to build back better.

There is an urgent need for global stakeholders to cooperate in simultaneously managing the direct consequences of the COVID-19 crisis. To improve the state of the world, the World Economic Forum is starting The Great Reset initiative.

The Covid-19 crisis, and the political, economic and social disruptions it has caused, is fundamentally changing the traditional context for decision-making. The inconsistencies, inadequacies and contradictions of multiple systems –from health and financial to energy and education – are more exposed than ever amidst a global context of concern for lives, livelihoods and the planet. Leaders find themselves at a historic crossroads, managing short-term pressures against medium- and long-term uncertainties.

As we enter a unique window of opportunity to shape the recovery, this initiative will offer insights to help inform all those determining the future state of global relations, the direction of national economies, the priorities of societies, the nature of business models and the management of a global commons. Drawing from the vision and vast expertise of the leaders engaged across the Forum’s communities, the Great Reset initiative has a set of dimensions to build a new social contract that honours the dignity of every human being.

What could go wrong?

PARIS (AP) — A suspect shot dead by police after the beheading of a history teacher near Paris was an 18-year-old Chechen refugee unknown to intelligence services who posted a grisly claim of responsibility on social media minutes after the attack, officials said Saturday.

France’s anti-terrorism prosecutor’s office said authorities investigating the killing of Samuel Paty in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine on Friday arrested nine suspects, including the teen’s grandfather, parents and 17-year-old brother.

Paty had discussed caricatures of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad with his class, leading to threats, police officials said. Islam prohibits images of the prophet, asserting that they lead to idolatry.

Idolatry is bad, but murder is okay.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Publisher or Platform?

Facebook and Twitter are publishers, not platforms.

Pass it on.

This is in response to Twitter banning tweets linking to the NY Post article about Hunter Biden. Kayleigh McEnany (White House press secretary) was locked out of her acct, others have been banned. Facebook is also censoring this article.

The ban message she received -

Your account has been blocked. We have determined that this account violated the Twitter Rules. Specifically, for: Violating our rules against distribution of hacked material.

All this has only caused many more people to search for the article, I guess they never heard of the Streisand effect.

Anyway, yesterday I found out Twitter did the same thing to "Unity 2020" back in September. They banned the official Twitter acct, and did not allow links to their website. I have no idea why they didn't allow this, it's not racist, or any kind of phobic, or offensive, or calling for violence. You may not agree with their goals, but I can't see any reason for not allowing them to promote them.

So, have Twitter and Facebook become publishers?

Laura Loomer, with Roger Stone in tow, wins Florida House Republican primary. She'll face Lois Frankel in November

WTF? I didn't even know she was running for anything here. Maybe she will handcuff herself to the doors of the state capital building.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Careful what you retweet!

A New Jersey police department is pursuing cyber harassment charges against five people in connection with a protest photo uploaded to Twitter in June. Complaints were served against the original tweeter and four other people who retweeted the message, alleging that they caused the officer to fear for the safety of his family.

It’s an unprecedented use of anti-harassment laws, coming amid a nationwide law enforcement backlash against anti-police brutality activism. If successful, the charges would add significant new risks to political activity on social media, a key element in the ongoing protest movements.

The Nutley Police Department filed its complaints in late July over a tweet posted during a June 26th protest. The now-deleted message included a photo of a masked on-duty police officer with a request that “If anyone knows who this bitch is throw his info under this tweet.” Because of the mask, the officer is not readily identifiable from the photograph, and there do not appear to be any replies revealing his identity.

The original poster and the retweeters are charged with cyber harassment, a fourth-degree felony punishable by up to 18 months in jail. Activist Georgana Sziszak, one of the retweeters, revealed the complaint in a GoFundMe campaign last week. The American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey confirmed its existence to The Verge, as did Sziszak’s attorney Alan Peyrouton. The Verge has also reviewed a copy of Sziszak’s summons.

I do not have a lot of sympathy for the protesters anymore, but this is a stretch.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Beirut explosion

There are lots of videos from many different vantage points, I just chose a short one.

The Guardian's live up date page

Beirut explosion: more than 25 dead and 2,500 wounded, says Lebanon health minister

I read some speculation on Twitter that the explosion was in a fireworks warehouse.

Most of you probably heard about the Twitter hack yesterday, but I found the last paragraph of that article interesting.

Twitter said the breach took place after hackers gained access to internal tools by targeting a Twitter employee with social engineering. It also took the unusual step of disabling tweets from most verified accounts as it attempted to get a handle on the situation.

Is that just some weird way of saying a Twitter employee was tricked into giving control to a hacker?

Looks like several cellphone service providers and some major platforms are being DDoS'd in the US. THE FES STANDS STRONG!

Seriously, though. Are your cellphones (calling and texting) working?

My niece has a podcast, and my mom wants to listen to it. She has an Android tablet, but the podcast is Apple. Does anyone know which app she should download?

Hope you're all having a nice day, even if you're locked down with a bunch of kids hopped up on candy!

Hello FE, let's talk about how we can make the forum better.

Some ideas have been tossed around over the years, but we never really get very far. Any major changes we agree on will need the final okay from John Davis. Hopefully he'll have the time to get involved in the discussion too.

So far it has been suggested that the site move away from debating FE. There has been a request for technical moderation. There has been a suggestion to re-purpose the Information Repository.

So, let's begin.

I personally would rather re-purpose Flat Earth Q&A. Change the description a little bit, but keep the strict moderation. No one really uses it for Q&A, anyway.
