The tech crackdown is weakness

As well as an opportunity to foxnews the f------- at Facebook, Wikipedia, Twitter, and the other social media giants.
This year, the world’s largest social network will see a decline among teen users in the U.S., according to a forecast by EMarketer. It’s the first time the research company has predicted a fall in Facebook usage for any age group.

EMarketer predicts 14.5 million people from the ages of 12 to 17 will use Facebook in 2017, a drop of 3.4 percent from the prior year. Teens are migrating instead to Snap Inc.’s Snapchat and Instagram, the photo-sharing app that Facebook owns, the research company said Monday in a statement.

Facebook has continued to grow around the world, with more than 2 billion users this year, but younger people are finding it less compelling, said Oscar Orozco, a forecasting analyst at EMarketer.
The Facebook/Twitter business model is an intrinsically fraudulent one, propped up by debt and ideology. Which means, of course, that their decline will be unexpectedly fast once it begins. And it is coming soon. Twitter has already ceased to grow. Facebook will follow suit soon. All they will succeed in doing is fracturing and further decentralizing the Internet, which will serve us, not them.

The reason they are cracking down hard now is that they realize their window of opportunity to do so is closing. This is why there is no reason to panic when another deplatforming happens. All that a deplatforming accomplishes is to ensure that a new platform will come into being to replace it.

Remember, there was a time not all that long ago when SJW fans of John Scalzi bragged that his blog traffic was vastly bigger than mine. Now that mine is more than 5x his, he switched to bragging about his 111,329 followers and 178 million annual Twitter impressions... and I am now on pace to equal or exceed his 2016 monthly average of 14.8 million Twitter impressions this month.

The world is a dynamic place. It will knock you down, but when you get up again, hardened by the experience, the experience only makes you that much more formidable.

That being said, the next anti-Right tech strike will be more systematic and multiplatform. I expect that if I am targeted, my accounts will be vanished from Twitter, Blogger, and Gmail simultaneously,  (I don't really use Facebook or Paypal) which is why I am already set up with more reliable alternatives for literally every social media and payment platform, and have arranged for direct email access to every VFM, Book Club, and Daily Meme Wars member. If you want to make sure that you're immediately alerted and provided with the alternatives, I recommend signing up for either the Book Club or if you don't mind daily emails, the Daily Meme Wars.

This is why doom & gloom are wrong. If we think the Internet is a decentralized system capable of routing around obstacles, take a step back and see how small it is compared to humanity.

This is why no one can control everything. Control is an illusion.

Whether termed "Punctuated Equilibrium" or "Trend and Trend-change," we see one example after another of how a paradigm is born, then grows to dominance, and once dominant it inevitably slips toward senility.

The behavior of the people who run Google is emblematic of this, no? The firm's management behaves like a crowd of raving schizophrenics.

The senility phase sets in because a move to a new paradigm doesn't occur until the costs of sticking with the old exceed a threshold of (cost of moving to a new trend or paradigm)+(cost of sticking with the increasingly dysfunctional one.)

Educating children is a great example. As long as the publics were moderately functional, most parents were satisfied with the balance between (stupid crap taught)+(useful stuff taught) and (cost of private or home-schooling)+(paying for the publics anyway.)

Now that the publics are teaching Full-on insanity (trannies are normal and not behaviorally aberrant, etc.) and robbing the education of "normies" in favor of ESL Mestizo illegals & seriously cognitively disabled individuals, they have reduced the value of their "product" to approaching zero while their cost/pupil grows exponentially due to pension costs.

What's happening? "Normies" are fleeing the publics, leaving their classrooms full of Mestizos and (sorry, it's true) retards.

The future? As Joe Citizen moves away from the publics, so too does his willingness to pay the taxes for them. People pay taxes only so far as they think they're getting some sort of "Public Good" for their coins. I submit that tax revolts are nearly upon us because government at every level, run by Leftist loons and Affirmative Action dolts, no longer remotely justifies Jack Taxpayer's consent. And consent is of the MIND, and as SJW's hate, they can try to police what we say, but in anonymous forums the truth comes out and shreds them.

Socionomic viewpoint:
We've been in a social mood rally since 1974, and from a larger perspective, since 1937 and since 1784 (or so.) During this latest phase, we entered a rare, once-in-300-years social mood mania.

All of this explains why people consented to a full-fiat monetary system in 1964/1971, why "bond vigilantes" basically disappeared, why deficits and the national debt didn't matter and why Congress & the Executive could cut taxes and increase spending without there seeming to be any effect (except to make even larger bondholders even more rich.)

The social mood mania underlies people's desire to open themselves up to FB, Twitter, etc. It animates the desire to connect, connect, connect. It is the engine for pathological trust and tolerance, trusting $200 trillion in IOU's and tens of millions of 3rd world aspiring "Americans," while tolerating bearded men (who harbor extraordinary delusions about themselves) nude next to their 9 year old daughters.

The mania allowed what some of us were genetically predisposed to see as insanity to double and redouble, and last so long our nightmares are populated by its seeming permanence.

It all rests on nothing but social mood, the natural herding impulses humans harbor, and social mood naturally waxes and wanes, obeying no master, following no outside influence.

Everywhere I look I see conditions parallel to the USSR. One day vast and formidable, the power of communism incarnate, its KGB feared the world around. Then one day it basically vanished, its vassal states set free, its fleets pulled home to rust in port, even its state security agencies mothballed and their records opened to the world.

As Trump attempts to build a wall, we await the walls inside our neighbors' minds to evaporate. And they will.

"Social media," (and most of the news media) will not survive.

If we think the Internet is a decentralized system capable of routing around obstacles,

It could be, but the centralized client-server model, of which HTTP (the protocol underlying the web) is the dumbedest-down example, is just so easy that it ended up dominating. (I can explain the client-server model to newbies in one classroom session; I barely understand how the blockchain words after an hour of reading about it.)

So it will be more work to build a truly distributed net, but it will happen. You can already build your app on WebTorrent and get distributed file sharing without centralized servers. BitChute, a YouTube alternative, uses it. In the meantime, systems like IRC and Usenet do still exist, plus plain old email. They can take down right-wing "brands" from the web, but they can't stop us from communicating.

Echoing @18 Cail Corishev, HTTP and other server based protocols for us is dying, without companies like Cloudflare providing Distributed Denial of Service protection any of our sites can be permanently knocked off the air like the Daily Stormer has been.

I have to disagree on Twitter and Facebook, except for the dc.sunsets social mania point. Facebook the company is still quite healthy so far and nimble enough to invest in alternate platforms, Twitter is a case of social justice convergence, they make a LOT of money, $2.5 billion in 2016, they're just too bloated to make a profit and of course are more focused on chasing away eyeballs than getting new ones.

Blogger Timmy3 August 22, 2017 9:11 AM  

It's more important if alternatives and fragmentation occurs. Facebook, Google, and Twitter dominates their categories and this won't change. I don't expect things to change merely from politics. Not everyone views things from their politics. Liberalism is so enticing as a persuasion. Conformity is compelling. What's more important is alternative banking and financial channels. You can thank Trump for discontinuing Operation Choke Point.

Yes. They're working on an Alt-Left manual for organized online attacks. It's supposed to be heavy on doxing (2nd Law; they wear masks for a reason) and deplatforming. It doesn't take a master strategist to see that it's bad when you kick someone off one platform and he goes and yells about his rights from other major platforms until you can get to him there. So you fix that by delaying your attack until you've arranged through the SJW Entryist Network to take him down at all major points simultaneously. Probably under cover of night, like removing statues in Texas.

Kids tend to want to congregate where parents aren't. Since most parents are on Facebook, they're going to go someplace that doesn't have that level of parental market saturation. It was the malt shop and the drive-in up until the 70's, then it was the mall, then it was myspace, facebook, and now it looks like snapchat.

I suspect the tech "crackdown" is also being used as a convenient, if short-term, excuse for the impending declines in ad revenue and user engagement numbers they know they have to account for. They've been struggling to keep looking positive, so when this excuse presented itself, they jumped all over it.

Seriously doubt it. Even before he was elected I was saying ''Twitter needs Trump more than Trump needs Twitter'', a variant of ''if you owe $10k to a bank, you're in trouble - if you owe $10 million to a bank, the bank is in trouble''. Twitter bans Trump and a lot of folks will leave, for a service Trump sets up as a Twitter replacement. Remember for the next 3-7 1/2 years, he has the full use of whitehouse.gov at his disposal.

The Internet may be the only example in my lifetime of the US government getting less involved in an industry. Al Gore's ARPANET/NSFNET was supposed to be barred to commercial traffic, but in the early 90s they realized it was going to be abandoned for private commercial networks that were springing up, so they rolled it into those rather than be left behind. They've spent the years ever since trying to figure out a way to tax the thing and failing -- and taxing stuff is something they're really good at.

As long as the big tech corporations are SJW-run, a leftist government wouldn't need to take them over anyway. Better to let them do their thing and make occasional "requests" and "suggestions." That way the lolbertarians will stand with them saying, "Mah private enterprise."

In 1929 the typical investor's portfolio included Stutz Motor Company and New York Central Railroad, rock-solid firms with "buy" ratings by analysts of the day. Within a couple years those firms were...
GONE.
ZERO.
Nada, baby. The "wealth" investors believed existed in them didn't rise from the dead (which is the illusion you get from looking at stock indices, which simply strip out the bankrupt firms and add in surviving firms.) It was 100% write-off.

Isn't there a figure, a huge percentage, of "tweets" that are never seen by anyone? FB (as I understand it, I'd sooner get a cactus colonoscopy than join it) is stuffed with people sharing the boring minutia of their lives, and no one notices. Does a FB post that no one reads make a sound in the forest? Does anyone really care how Aunt Millie's bathroom habits are going?

(facepalm.)

The urge to "share" (or over-share), the urge to hang on the latest doings of one vacuous celebrity or another, the urge to BE THAT CONNECTED is an artifact. It is an historical anomaly. And the revenues "earned" by firms in the advertising business are equally artifacts of debt-enabled shop-til-you-drop consumerism...which is one side of the Social Status Climbing obsession (conspicuous consumption), which "virtue-signaling" being the other. This also underlies people's consent to the NSA-style virtual strip-search of everyone 24/7.

It all assorts together. It will all collapse together, too.

The future will see a turn from Status-Seeking via material wealth (and pseudo-virtue) display toward spiritual wealth-seeking. The former obsesses about others' perceptions, the latter is about (honest) self-assessment. In coming decades people simply won't be able to afford the former anyway.

I'm amazed at the lack of understanding of just how bad C'ville was. The left were able to take their goon squad that had been previously publicly battered and legitimize their violent tactics towards free speech- because Nazis. They haven't quite pulled off the "ANTIFA: modern day civil rights heroes" thing they are going for with their media push, but they aren't done yet, not by a long shot.

Stop thinking you can EVER be associated with people dressed as Nazis and win long term. Age doesn't matter, generations don't matter. Sure boomers are more likely to associate anything Nazi with horror, but the young being skeptical about some of the claims made by WW2 victors doesn't mean they suddenly want to goose step down the streets of VA. Just STOP. Sometimes a strategic retreat & reorganization is the best thing that could happen, if you don't deny reality that is, and keep trying the same thing over and over with the same swastika and hood wearing idiots.

My analysis of the Cville aftermath is that they activated this attack too early. This was part of a Hillary Presidency playbook, but the target was very different. They were going to setup some event to wipe out the Social Conservatives from the Internet. The SoCons would have been a big force in a HRC Scenario because she's always been a hard left winger.

However, the attack was too early and the target was really one you didn't want to piss off. The DS crowd will eventually find a way back, then expect a chunk of them to go pure Black Hat. Trying to Unperson a rather nasty group of characters normally backfires badly. It also gives the rest of us time to build separate systems. That's the massive strategic blunder.

Almost 72% of Facebook is held by institutional investors (investment management companies and banks). Unlike the old days (MySpace, AOL) Facebook is not going to go away. Even when the market melts down, the institutionals will still maintain investments in Facebook. Unlike some stocks with insane or negative PE ratios, Facebook actually makes money. The Boomers have money, and they use Facebook. The Boomers are not going to move on to Instagram or Snapchat. Grandma and Grandpa have learned to use Facebook, and they will keep using it until their dementia is so advanced they can't work the keyboard anymore.

I suspect that eventually Facebook will ban everyone and everything that upsets the "happy face" world that Grandma and Grandpa want to experience. Its just good business for them to do so.

One interesting difference between today and the previous marxists revolutions of the 20th century is that today there seems to be a much better understanding of the tools of rhetoric that the left utilizes as well as the asymmetric ability of the right to strike at mega corporations using strong rhetoric and meme's.
Information moves faster and to much wider crowds, its changing the dynamic of the conflict at this stage.
Once the shooting and assassination starts I suspect modern media will play a big role as well; in terms of who can get the most PR values for both the loses on their team, as well as their strikes at the opposing team. The point being to convince the middle, that comprises a large % of the population, that your particular faction is the dominant one, control the narrative.

Dimitri Orlov has been talking about this for years. The one thing that he noted is the US is actually in much worse shape long term than the USSR was as we have a far more complex economy, too few people in agriculture and a lot more incompatible peoples sharing the same land.

He thinks and I somewhat agree that we may well come out much worse than the USSR

That said once the US Empire is gone, assuming China doesn't take over the world will be in much better shape for the long term.

Ben Carson still speaking inside.
