I'm preaching to the converted here, but ealier in the month, a friend asked me: “What’s wrong with WhatsApp?”

If messages are encrypted, what’s the big deal?

The answer is part of a larger problem. Metadata.

"We kept everyone stupid because it was easier to make money.

Now the government wants everyone to start making smart decisions, something that has never been asked of the American public since WWII, and we’re surprised people don’t know what to do."

And, you can't quickly teach critical thinking. It takes practice and proliferation for it to truly be effective.

GG America.

I need a lightweight blog platform that I can use to store Power Shell snippets and other micro-ish blog content.

I'd like to be able to post from my Android phone too.

Any suggestions?

@yogthos You're speaking my language. Narrative in the mind is literally my research area. I don't think there's anything particularly western about this propaganda, though. I think it is simply a feature of how society works to the best of our knowledge right now. Isn't the issue when actors are not being transparent about their intentions -- ie they are trying to influence selfishly and secretly?

I've done the research
Potatoes > Bitcoin
