I facetiously asked in a past audiochat about the dark web, saying I didn’t see much evidence for it. I was speaking out of ignorance, but this post does a good job of educating.
I think many of you will be surprised to learn some new, less known facts about the internet, the digital wonderland of the 21st century. We all know that the internet is huge, right? It would take us months or even years to Google search and find every single existing internet page. But did you know that all that we can find with Google, Bing, Yandex or any other »classic« search engine represents only a small fraction of what the web offers? The small fraction is only the tip of the iceberg — a traditiona

It’s us against a trillion dollar entity in this psy-war. With such an uneven playing field, is it possible to win?
Paul says we have to adjust our strategy, since they are all the time.
Another good comment from POM.
What you shouldn’t forget, Vexman, is everything we do here is HOBBY. Other people gather and play sports, others read the Bible, others go fishing, others solve crossword puzzles together, we do this. That is what this is; a hobby. Our hobby is analyzing stories that are told to us and showing and sharing information that they are wrong; lies, misdirections, etc. And yes, that is a serious thing. But there is no contradiction between a hobby, a pastime, as this is, and being serious about it. If you love skydiving as a hobby, I assume you take your hobby very seriously…
Comment on The Columbine effect by Gaia pieceofmindful.com…
I recently had a negative experience talking to a relative-by-marriage. I was called paranoid for my beliefs. Here’s a good comment on dealing with the non-fakeologists.
“It’s a fact, that it’s usually a miserable experience when talking to a member of 95% club and it sucks that I need a differnt set of friends to talk about manufactured reality. So I feel comforted by reading that someone else alike has similar issues and can then relate to this and such reality with more optimism. Something that is rarely seen in these days as much as the balls needed to say it out loud.” But that is the whole problem? Why is it so “miserable” to talk to the 95%? Do you have any illusion

If you aren’t reading the POM blog and its comments, you should be. This is my kind of writing/thinking – big picture stuff. I hope Mark joins me in an audio conversation soon to discuss his most bang on research.
Of course, I go with door #4 – these are all staged #HRDPAR with the full backing of the military and its power pawns in civilian clothes. They are immoral, unethical, but legal.
I’ve pasted the whole post below, in case you can’t/won’t click.
In the discussions below we have described a large herd out there, the unthinking majority of Americans, as “the 95%.” Some think that too generous. Perhaps half of the adults are easily herded into voting booths. They can easily be reduced to ridiculous debates about whether one of two despicable candidates, say Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, offers a better choice.
Half doesn’t bother to vote. Some might take comfort in that, as it is the proper choice. I doubt, however, that the decision is a result of critical thought. They are just distracted by poverty, football, substance abuse, entertainment and low-paying repetitive jobs that destroy their minds. The sad conclusion is that the 95% are hopelessly under control, so that from the standpoint of those in power, their only task is to isolate them from the minority of people who do learn how to reason and solve problems.
You’re in an exclusive club. Enjoy the isolation,and also enjoy the comradery here.
What follows is a passage from Wilson’s 1967 postscript that strikes me as being not true, precisely, and yet true enough.
“In the Korean War the Chinese discovered that they could prevent the escape of American soldiers by segregating the “leader figures” and keeping them under heavy guard, and leaving the others without any guard at all. The leaders were always precisely five percent of the total number of soldiers. And it so happens that this figure holds good for most species of animals too. The “dominant majority” is always five percent.”
