Reddit - come for the censorship, stay for the gas-lighting

And their surroundings made of nothing but astroturf.

In every sense of the word.

They're still trying to make .#netneutrality a thing.

It's impressive really, they took Aaron Schwartz's genuine grassroots campaign to prevent the internet from being tied up in red tape (stop SOPA) and copied it into an astroturfed movement intended to achieve the exact opposite.

they really have no respect for Schwartz and what he created. I doubt he ever would have made reddit if he could have seen what it turned into, an effective deep state mind manipulation site that gives the perception of real people agreeing to worship tyrants and hate the patriotic.

They killed him

[–] AlaskaMountain 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Not really. He'd actually fit right in with them. Remember that he founded an organization for the purpose of campaigning for Elizabeth Warren online.

How is Net Neutrality the opposite of what Aaron Schwartz would have wanted?

[–] VOALTRON 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

Net neutraltity is supported by the same big tech giants that just recently pushed to get european internet censored with link taxes, meme bans, and all that other stupid shit. Google, twitter, facebook, youtube...the usual censorship culprits. That's all most people should really need to know.

Where people get confused about "Net Neutrality" is because of the name. In the year 2014, leftist tyrants branded a bullshit law, passed by 0bama, that imposed restictions against free market competition. Leftist, Marxist, government meddling, where none ever existed before in the history of the internet. The set of laws was called "Net Neutrality."

But net neutrality is, and has always been a concept to describe how an open internet should operate. It was a name given to a concept, not a law. The law stole the name of the concept, and applied it to a law that does the opposite of what it sounds like.

Leftists are famous for doing shit like this:

-The Affordable Healthcare Act (0bama Care). It is neither affordable, nor is it healcare. It is actually just overpriced insurance that people are forced to buy. But the name sounds good to the public.

-Free Trade agreements, that are not free at all. American companies get taxed out the ass when trying to "free trade" with foreign countries, and the prices on consumer goods for Americans never dropped, thanks to those deals. But the name sounds good to the public.

There are many other examples like this. The left loves using it's Orwellian double-speak language to name their opressive laws. The law named Net Neutrality is more of the same.

Because the alt-right ain't too bright. Why wouldn't we leave the giant monopolies in charge of what we do and say on the internet to their own devices? What could go wrong?

[–] Broc_Lia 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Because it's not what it's being presented as. At best net neutrality means an inefficient regime preventing internet access being sold on the basis of priority. At worst it's a backdoor effort by the deep state to control the internet.

Think about it, during the campaign, when did you see the term being explained in rational technical terms? All the arguments in favour of it were emotive or brain dead, like "ISPs are going to charge you more for internet access," as if they couldn't just do that already.

In addition, did any major outlet cover the counterarguments? I saw one article in forbes, that was it. Someone wanted those regulations to go unquestioned very very badly, all 400 pages of it that no one was given time to read before voting.

Let’s shut down reddit on voat I don’t wanna hear about these faggots anymore.

[–] jollux 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

You can't call them out on their own site, so it has to be here.

[–] Chad88 1 points 4 points (+5|-1) ago 

I used to be a pretty active redditor. Once posts break into /r/All sorted by top of the hour and rising, they get tons of attention from outside of the sub.

I'm really not sure what you're implying anyways, the reddit community is retarded enough that it's not like the admins need to do any behind-the-scenes manipulation.

Sure, and why would all of those posts break into /r/all exactly?

Reddit exists for paid astroturfing. If they let the retard sheep wander wherever they like they won't end up supporting the donor's campaigns.

[–] Chad88 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Ah yeah definitely paid upvotes are a thing. But never underestimate the power of a post that implies upvoting it is a form of activism. Redditors eat that shit up.

[–] DietCokehead1 [S] 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Can you cite evidence that this was on one of the top pages of /r/all? Since that's what you are stating.

[–] badruns 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

And how is it that these political posts from no-name subs make it in to /r/all to begin with? Hmmm...

[–] GuacBowl 1 points 3 points (+4|-1) ago 

Doesn't look like a botted campaign at all /s

[–] crustyjuggler 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

I'm pretty sure that Reddit does some sort of fake voting momentum for their shilling posts. I'm sure they made the stats look real too.
