21st Century Censorship
Opinion by: Stewart Brennan
Topic today – Facebook censorship
I don't like Facebook because it is highly censored and will get even worse in the coming weeks and months. However, I still use facebook (Fakebook) in hopes that some truthful thing I’ve shared will resonate with others even through their heavy censorship...I hope to help build a better world for the next generation to come; therefore communication is a priority to making that world a reality...
If a social media platform comes around that allows mass communication with their subscribers then that will be a real social media platform worthy of joining and an asset to investigative journalists and the truth seeking public...barring that, there is not one up and coming social media platform, that I know of, that will allow mass communication with all their subscribers as YouTube once did...so I’m stuck on Facebook until one comes along.
As far as other social networks go, the creators are not offering their subscribers mass communication either. These new and old platforms are in it for the money or to cast the illusion that you have an alternative...You don’t, at least no yet. I’m still waiting, but until that medium or platform arrives, I will continue to scream at the top of the mountain hoping my echo will catch ears…
As far as Facebook goes, news feeds, groups and mass communication died long ago...Facebook sided with the Orwellian deep state that is pushing the World into a corporate totalitarian governance that does not like its sociopathic authority questioned…I will not go silently into the night…and neither should you.
Here'a a Poem by the activist Poet that touches on Facebook's authoritarian program of censorship.
Ever have a Facebook moment? See if this short poem rings true with you, and if it does, share it. ;)
Poem by ~ The Activist Poet ~
Another Facebook time-out, they didn’t like what I said,
nor the posted pictures, of the terrorists who are dead.
I’m in political limbo, I’m not allowed to post,
Jailed by Facebook’s police, barred from coast to coast.
Caught by U.S. sensors, my words they say are bad,
I’m not allowed to use good terms for Putin and Assad.
My news feeds one-way traffic, my pages are all blank,
Unless I bow to extortion, and pay them from my bank.
Their advertisers hound me, I mark them all as Spam,
Greedy corporate agents of belligerent Uncle Sam.
Their suggestions make me shudder, who the F*** is that?
with pages blank and empty, another troll or rat.
I plan my re-emergence, Palestine posts are due,
I’m sure to piss off Zionists, facebook's other shoe.
So here I wait in penance, eager to do much more,
to celebrate my family, all activists to the core.

About this Poem: Facebook is not a social network anymore, in fact it’s more of a US Intelligence program and corporate data mining tool / application that either penalizes users who do not fall in line with their politics, or data mines information while extorting small businesses for money.
Ask any activist who’s been isolated for their political posts or ask a musician who now has to pay out money for his page posts to reach those who already subscribed to their updates. After paying Facebook for putting posts on more of the bands subscriber news feeds, bands find themselves out of pocket with no real results, as its all just a numbers game and scam.
Now, Facebook has partnered with Fascist Dictatorship nations like Israel to censor what we can see or say. Together they become Orwell’s “Big Brother”…so being the Political Activist I am, here’s a middle finger; an F U Salute to Facebook and its censorship Regime and sponsors…
