Demonstration of Facebook listening to phone users' conversations for data on ad placement. submitted by idle_voating to technology

Breizh 1 points 46 points (+47|-1) ago

People are fooling themselves if they truly believe advertisement is the end goal. Privatized surveillance if anything. Goldstein had it all figured out 70 years ago:

The spectacular scientific progress that humanity has witnessed in less than a century now allows to determine at any given time whether someone is home or not, with whom that person is, and what is being said. For, thanks to a minor modification of personal phones, a phone operator only has to plug in a pair of headphones to listen in. Indeed, the mere act of picking and hanging up the phone opens and closes the connection with the telephone center, thanks to a switch mechanism that prevents electrical current from going to and from the speaker and microphone. If this switch only acts on the speaker, the microphone shall permanently remain connected to the network, and thus a phone operator would only need to listen in order to pick up what is being said in the vicinity of a telephone booth.

Recent developments allowing TV cameras to be transported inside TV studios allow us to expect with confidence the emergence of miniature cameras no bigger than a pack of cigarettes, and whose mass production would become very affordable. With the collaboration of technicians, telecom and electric companies, it should thus become possible to offer every household a direct connection with a national TV network, and, for a reasonable price, a TV receptor equipped with a miniature camera. Thus, in addition to sound that can already be picked up in every household there will be images.

Naturally, such installations in public places, coffee shops, restaurants, hotels, train and bus stations would greatly improve public safety. Their justification would readily be embraced by the population: permanent access to information everywhere from receiving ends, and the safety of honest people form emitting ends. Only criminals and troublemakers would ever question them.

DING! DING! DING! Vatican Bishop confesses: "Senior Catholic officials are being paid off by George Soros to promote mass muslim migration into Europe" submitted by Scrooblemeyer to news

For those who aren't familiar with the ideology that has been creeping into the halls of the Vatican as of late:

Liberation theology is a synthesis of Christian theology and Marxist socio-economic analyses that emphasizes social concern for the poor and the political liberation for oppressed peoples.

It was a radical movement that grew up in South America. It said said the church should act to bring about social change, and should ally itself with the working class to do so. The late Pope John Paul II opposed the movement.

The movement was caricatured in the phrase "If Jesus Christ were on Earth today, he would be a Marxist revolutionary".

Sounds familiar? You can guess which side Pope Francis leans on.

It's quite amazing that making such a simple observation would even draw criticism. Imagine a debate like this taking place in America today (Firing Line, 1974): https://hooktube.com/watch?v=IDwepurGveM

How did it become such a taboo in the span of forty years?

The reason the right to keep and bear arms wasn't part of the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen is that it was considered "evident" by the drafting committee, despite the recommendations of Mirabeau to include it explicitly.

It remained in effect until 1939, where gun control laws were passed in order to "prevent an armed insurrection" and which the Vichy government enforced with capital punishment. France never recovered its full freedom after WW2, a classic example of extraordinary circumstances conveniently leading to extraordinary measures.
