The brainwashing is real: Jeremy Lam, “his” culture, and the prom dress

Cultural Marxism rears its ugly head again in the social media cesspool.

This time, Twitter user Jeremy Lam (@jere_bare) had the wherewithal to speak on behalf of 1.5 billion Chinese (and apparently me included). Stereotyping anyone with Chinese ancestry to great irony by grouping us all as like-minded thinkers and not individuals, he accuses a stranger … Read more

“This is extremely dangerous to our democracy” — this is what western propaganda looks like

This video perfectly points out the extreme irony and hypocrisy of mainstream media, the seed that has helped grow today’s cult of group-thinking “news” watchers, reflexively regurgitating platitudes, smug in their presumed “informed”-ness but ultimately incapable of individual and critical thought.

Unless you a… Read more

Zuckerberg and Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica “scandal”: two wrongs don’t make a right

Despite the revelations of the obvious, that is, the implicit admission of censorship, privacy invasion and bias after Ted Cruz’s “grilling” of Zuckerberg, one has to be weary of the pitfall that this Senate hearing aims to achieve: merely passing the baton of corruption from a private corporation to the needlessly growing federal go… Read more

Facebook incriminates itself, but that doesn’t matter when the lawmakers are on your side

Consider it a shareholders meeting.

With Mark Zuckerberg testifying in front of the U.S. Senate in what is looking to be the frontrunning dog-and-pony show of 2018, it is laughable to see the feigned concern of government officials in the wake of Facebook’s antics that include but are not limited to censorship, biased algorithms and selling privacy … Read more

Thursday Thoughts: the promise for more “free” things and the bursting of bubbles

Any politician should be endlessly ridiculed for using the word “free”

“Free” means without cost, and clearly every “free” thing promised by the government comes at a steep cost — the complete opposite of free.

The “free” daycare promised by the current Ontario government which would saddle Ontar… Read more

The pot calling the kettle black Part 2: Tim Cook criticizes Facebook for out-Appling Apple

In a prior article I wrote about a different pot, George Soros, calling the same kettle, Facebook, black, noting the similar approaches of both parties profiting off of propaganda, whether it be through the Open Society Foundation, media and academia on Soros’ end or social media on Zuckerberg’s end.

Recently, Tim Cook has come out in favouRead more

I’m “grossly offended” by the Count Dankula verdict. When do the lawmakers and jury go to jail?

When any group of people determine what constitutes “fake news”, or “hate speech” or something “grossly offensive”, they have clearly proclaimed themselves as the moral arbiters and the all-knowing Gods of the world. Hence, we end up with their relentless demands to be all-seeing as well. Feeling entitled to acc… Read more

Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica “scandal” shouldn’t surprise anyone, but the fact that people are surprised should

Despite being common knowledge that Facebook’s modus operandi is harvesting and selling users’ personal information to the highest bidders, the fact that Cambridge Analytica came out as a “whistleblower’s” third-party company of choice is telling.

It’s not telling in the sense that Facebook is careless with i… Read more

Communities work, Communism does not — Part 4: that wasn’t real Communism!

According to Wikipedia, the Economic Calculation Problem as coined by Austrian economist Von Mises states:

[…] pricing systems in socialist economies were necessarily deficient because if a public entity owned all the means of production, no rational prices could be obtained for capital goods as they were merely internal transfers of goo

Communities work, Communism does not — Part 3: Where nobody knows your name

Sometimes you wanna go..

Where everybody knows your name
And they’re always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see,
The troubles are all the same.
You wanna be where everybody knows your name

The famous theme song of Cheers under today’s identity politics obsessed terms can be renamed to “nobody knows your name” (or don̵… Read more
