Facebook has corporate cancer

Keep this Facebook example in mind should you catch yourself assuming that employees at a corporation would never deliberately do anything that would harm their employer's profits:
Facebook’s moderators have called on advertisers to keep boycotting the site, over the way it deals with “hate speech,” but they really just want to stop Trump winning again. Keen observers of the ins and outs of Silicon Valley’s complicated relationship with freedom of expression may remember that last month a host of big corporations, including Disney, Ford and Adidas, pulled their adverts from the site in the biggest boycott ever of its kind.

This was sparked by a campaign called Stop Hate for Profit set up by several US civil rights groups in the wake of George Floyd’s killing. The group accuses Facebook of “profiteering from hate and misinformation” and has branded their policy on hate speech “vexing.” Now, as the month-long July boycott is due to end, some of Facebook’s own employees have urged companies to keep the pressure on their employer. Yes, Facebook's own employees want the company to make less money to make themselves feel better.
Never allow SJWs or Gammas into your organization. They will ALWAYS turn against the organization sooner or later, because their priorities are not the organization's priorities and they are constitutionally incapable of putting anything ahead of their own priorities.

In the case of the SJW, it is the social justice Narrative. In the case of the Gamma, it is his sense of self-importance. In either case, they won't even hesitate to turn against the organization or community.

They don't like being part of something bigger and more important than themselves. That's why they barely contribute and when they do, expect more praise than they are worthy.

Do Facebook employees actually believe the advertising boycott was an actual boycott and not just a way to pull their ads and save the money they were wasting?

Cancer is awful, so how can we help it along within FB?

Blogger Storm Rhode August 04, 2020 8:38 AM  

I thought Facebook got paid by governments and corporations for datamining it's users. And unofficially by the CIA and maybe NGOs for propagandizing it's users. Does anyone believe they're financially hurting because the likes of coca cola pulled their ad revenue?

The best part is that firing these employees would be considered a hate crime. Another reason to hire straight white males—at least you can fire them if you need to.

Facebook is the example of corporation that causes SJW cancer because they do NOT operate on revenue. They operate on government subsidies because they are a front for SIGINT.

They don't want your money, they want your data, compliance and soul.

I thought some of the right cheering the token boycott to starve the beast were missing the bigger picture... They were not about free speech but rather about MORE censorship if "hate", us. So the boycotts would be just more excuse for powerful factions inside FB to do what they want to already. "See? Our customers demanded we do it!" Note, not users.

Is Zuckerberg an aloof autist that doesn't quite get what is going on, is he trying to play both sides? or does he actually care about profit margins?

I will admit that I was surprised he condemned China and that he hasn't folded to this boycott so far. All of his past behaviors suggested he was on board with the SJW narrative but some of his recent actions have made me question that.

On a completely unrelated note, Are most male scientists 'Gamma' males, Vox?

It might explain why there is such a prevalence of corruption and failure to report truth when it comes at the expense of prestige or 'face-saving.' Or am I just seeing something that's common in any profession?

Suckerborg has, by all accounts, created the perfectly 'diverse' workforce for his type (mixture of small hats, Han, south Asians, and White women). Since there is no commonality, there is no community and thus no loyalty. Reap, sow, etc. How long before his unattractive Han wife joins in the condemnation, and moves to take over running the company?

>> Is Zuckerberg an aloof autist that doesn't quite get what is going on, is he trying to play both sides? or does he actually care about profit margins?

This reminds me of a question asked of the Russian author, Pushkin. At the time, the sons and daughters of the Russian aristocracy and nobility were commonly raised speaking half a dozen languages ("It's Wednesday, so today we speak German.") but little if any Russian (other than little bits here and their by their peasant nannies).

At a party, Pushkin was talking to some young woman, and after the conversation, one of his friends asked, "is she smart?" and Pushkin replied, "How do I know? She was speaking in French."

Now, for your question: "Is Zuckerberg an aloof autist that doesn't quite get what is going on, is he trying to play both sides?"

Who can tell? He's a (((Zuckerberg))).

Zuck's play may be to cut off trump's facebook advertising push a couple of weeks, or even days, before the election.

Interesting questio . It's a female dominated discipline (at least the biological sciences are).

The corruption and lies of science have a more fundamental cause - perverse incentives, and increased contributions from people from low trust societies.

I will admit that I was surprised [Zuck] condemned China

They needed one of the tech moguls to say something negative about China so their defenders could say, "See, they're not all in cahoots with each other and foreign interests; that's a tinfoil-hat conspiracy." Since he married a Chinese, he's more inoculated against charges of anti-Asian racism than others, so he was a good choice. Zuckerberg has to play his part, or the dog-and-pony show won't work. He is surely being rewarded.

Zuckerberg is a SJW, but he is not an idiot. He knows Facebook kowtowing to this boycott creates a terrible precedence, and anyone can shakedown Facebook if he gives in. Advertisers need Facebook, not the other way round.

Blogger Troy Lee Messer August 04, 2020 12:21 PM  

There is an unspoken agreement that corporation shareholders get limited liability in exchange for the efficiencies in economies of scale to use to generate profits.

TPTB has rejected that presumption/premise. Corporations are not tools to generate income for shareholder but a conduit and a cloak for Satan to do all kinds of evil shit. Mon-profit just allows them to be extra shady.

so pull limited liability to all Incs., Llcs and such. Yeah i understand that the Byzantine nature of finacialization through shit 401ks and mutual funds. Yes, libertarians and Boomers will whine. That is a feature, not a bug.

Also, Zhukov, I did not mention you by name two days ago: thank you for praying for me and my family in our distress. I am not comfortable describing what is happening in an open, worldwide forum, but please know that I grateful more than you know that you prayed for me in the middle of horrifying circumstances.

The Zuck is condemning China because the Chinese Elites (wisely) rejected the Learned Elders Of Wye plan of having (((small hats)))) re-locate from to China.

I just had an urge to boomeristically be like "well I quit Facebook long ago! Hawww hawww! Problem solved!"
No. Not solved really. Sooner or later there is nothing left to boycott or run from.

Before hiring? Get in the same room and trust your instincts; if his confidence makes you want to punch him in the face, then don't hire him.

Before interviewing? That's harder, but try imagining if his self-presentation would cause a manual laborer to assume that he's queer, like John Scalzi. Then he has been mentally colonized by femininity and has the associated foibles.

Think about current pop music. The men sing love songs to women, and the women sing love songs to themselves. If a guy's social media is a love song to himself, and he's nominally straight, then it's a fair bet that he's a gamma.

(Note that, contra the Narrative, DJT is constantly praising others. Sure, alphas promote themselves, but they also uplift their allies; gammas have none.)

"so pull limited liability to all Incs., Llcs and such."

Such pulling has to occur everywhere there is a corporations law. For the US that's c. 51+ pulls. There are already judge-made means to deny limited liability on facts and conduct. If Facebook shareholders did not have limited liability what would they today be responsible for that could not be satisfied out of facebook's assets? Your proposal would sooner ruin individual and small practice doctors and plumbers. Insurance companies would see more business too I reckon.
