Helen of desTroy on INN World Report with Tom Kiely, discussing the Big Tech-Big Brother alliance and how social media's seemingly arbitrary deplatformings are geared toward instilling self-censorship through learned helplessness. The Kafkaesque thicket of rules, which seem to change daily based on the shifting sands of indefinable terms like "hate speech," is choking the life out of online interaction. Meanwhile, the self-appointed Resistance is predictably blind to Trump's policy shift toward a new forever-war in Syria (what's old is new again) as it loses its mind over the Kavanaugh nomination and an utterly predictable 11th-hour sexual-assault controversy.

Helen Buyniski talks with Tom Kiely of INN World Report about the Great Deplatforming, the unholy alliance of Big Tech and Big Brother, the ideological pole-switch and resulting (deliberate) confusion, self-hating anti-fascists and the return of the Weimar Republic, Facebook's efforts to recreate the Stasi, the pathologization of strong emotions, and how independent journalists and commentators can start to fight back against the full frontal assault on freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Originally aired on 23 August 2018 on Logos Radio Network.

 In this second episode of Unsafe Space, we illuminate the gaping logical hole in the capitalist argument that if only we had perfectly free markets, we'd all be swimming in joyous plenty (hint: humans have no place in a "perfect market" - and that goes for socialism, too). We observe how neoliberal capitalism has made a disastrous mess of healthcare and education and how the profit motive is totally unrelated to societal advancement. In part 2, we discuss the ideological reversal that has turned liberals into fanatical thought police, allying themselves with their natural enemies in the FBI and CIA as well as their corporate cronies in Big Tech. We analyze Trump Derangement Syndrome and where it is really coming from, offering common sense solutions to the immigration crisis and other seemingly intractable issues.

Thanks to the Great Deplatforming, I've set up a BitChute channel to mirror my videos. If YouTube decides I'm a menace to society, you can find my videos there.

the Great Deplatforming - social media's "ethnic cleansing" of alternative media accounts and commentators for violations of increasingly opaque prohibitions on "hate speech" - is part and parcel of a general trend toward pathologizing extreme emotions.

Hate is a very real and valid part of being human. i'm not referring to bigotry - hating an entire ethnic group, race or religion is lazy and ignorant - but properly-directed hate, against a person or group who has wronged you, can be a powerful motivating factor. Hate can actually inspire people to make positive changes in their lives and societies. Sometimes it is the only thing that can inspire people to act.

Hate is only one of several strong feelings Big Tech's ruling class puppeteers would like to see struck from our emotional vocabulary. Big Pharma has pathologized anxiety even as the media feeds us a steady stream of fear propaganda, ensuring we cannot react in a normal way to these stimuli. And don't forget sadness, which those same pharmaceutical interests have reclassified as depression and removed from what is often an instigating situational context so as to be more easily dispelled with a pill. Never mind that emptiness at the core of your life - just paper over it and put a smile on your face - after all, you live in the Best Country in the World [tm]!

Whatever you do, don't get angry at all this injustice wrapped in bullshit - anger is a big no-no. Never mind that venting your anger appropriately can be empowering, that rage can also be a powerful motivating force for change - better bottle it up and pretend all is well. 

Strong emotion is so 20th century. Emotions are part of what makes us human, but who really wants to be human anymore? Embrace the beige. #PodPeople2020 #indefenseofhate
