Subject: “The Library of Alexandria is on Fire”: A mind-expanding discussion about Internet censorship.
Grenoble, 20 September 2020
Dear Colleagues and Friends of CEIMSA,
Below please find the link to an important discussion which is rich with accessible information concerning the new and developing technology of censorship on the Internet.
The inescapable conclusion in this discussion is that: an increasing number of people are working with received ideas, governed by the systematic censorship of alternative sources of information. Our minds are thus narrowed and groomed, by this engineered omission, for obedience to special interest groups - a complicity of which we are for the most part unaware. (See the “shadow ban” technique discussed, beginning at around 29:25 on this video below.)

For suggested proactive policies, see the segment of this video (starting at around 42:00) for “some simple steps to preserve information”: a) Save Everything on External Hard Drives”, and b) (at 44:14) Stop Using Controlled Platforms Exclusively. For the latter advice, 4 alternative platforms are presently recommended to free ourselves from "the manufacture of consent" produced by corporate controlled platforms such as Facebook, Google, Instagram, and You Tube :
