This is my first post after discovering this forum from the JoergSprave channel on YouTube. I think this is a great idea but first I think I should share my opinion...
Like most people here, I have very little trust for the Social Media giants but I do believe this lack of trust is a valid reaction to their often secretive actions followed by silence. However, my lack of trust goes even further. Some might say I am being paranoid because I honestly believe their behaviour is a lot more nefarious and manipulative than we give them credit.
Google/YouTube know exactly how powerful they are and I have no doubt that they have done many studies to measure how much more powerful they will be in the future. I don't like to speculate this but I'm pretty sure most of you can imagine how big and powerful Google will be if their growth continues for the next 20 years. The people at the head of Google/YouTube will view their future with such importace that they could be viewed as arrogant today by deciding they need to start shaping society to the politics they believe in. I not saying this is entirely bad and it depends what side of the political spectrum you align yourself with. The idea of a democratic future is impossible to imagine with these powerful corporations in charge.
We know that machines will be intergrated into society within the next 20 years and they could possibly have the same rights as us humans. Ray Kurzweil works for Google and his job is to make machines much smarter than humans - Could this 'Intergrated' future with machines explain why we are seeing such a MASSIVE push towards gender blurring in social media today? Could this be a stepping stone towards erradicating the concept of gender so that machines can merge into society much quicker with the same rights and laws governing them as the rest of us humans?
I think there is a good chance that the likes of YouTube and Google and banning, shadow banning and demonitizing channels so aggressivly today in order to cause a backlash. I think they actually want people to complain and shout political bias so that one day they can confess and admit they made a mistake. They will blame the mistake and natural human bias that everyone has even if your trying to remain completly neutral. Obviously, YouTube/Google will then present their solution which of course will be artifical intelligence.
Today, most of the employees at YouTube and Google are in their 20's and within this demographic the largest percentage will undoubtedly be considered liberal and progressive. It's a unnatural eco-system that doesn't represent the wider society at all. Especially when you consider that most people don't start to develop their 'conservative' views untill they get a bit older and wiser.
This is why we are seeing so much banning and demonitization of channels that don't follow the liberal/progressive ideology.
Yes, these employee's at Google and YouTube may be the best and brightest youngsters out there when it comes to technology but to give them decisons on censorship, banning and demonitization is insane because they are still kids who have no real grasp on the real world yet, especially when you consider they've probably spent so much of their time with their eye's glued to a screen.
These kids have no idea about freedom, censorship or even hardships. They don't know what life is like without a CCTV watching you everywhere you go or your mobile phone tracking you. To them, they have no concept of privacy and social media has taught them that they should 'BLOCK' someone they don't agree with. They have literally had everything handed to them on a plate and lived a life of luxury from the fruits of my generations labour. Just like my generation was able to live in peace thanks to the generation before us going to war to protect our freedom.
This idea can get very scary when you consider the power and influence that these young employees have on the next generation down the line.
My paranoia tells me that this is all by design and we are fast heading to a future like 'The Hunger Games' We are losing the war on Censorship and Privacy and we are giving rise to a machine based world that doesn't value freedom at all. We are bringing about our own distruction and I am pretty sure the likes of Google, Facebook etc have known this for a long time but they are pushing on at full-speed.
I dread to think what the future will look like but as it stands today I take the stand of an Antinatalist who believes it is morally wrong to bring a child into this world because of the suffering that will be inflicted on them. Our world today makes George Orwells 1984 read like a fairytale.
I do think using a new source to upload your videos is the best alternative at the moment but unfortunatly, these sources will not get the mass adoption the likes of YouTube have unless more people use them. It can take years of exponential growth to build a new community to rival YouTube and that's if your lucky enough to pick the right one. A new network MUST be decentralized and ideally pay it's content creators via the number of likes, shares, follows and comments they get with a cryptocurrecy like Bitcoin. I hear there is a new social media platform coming soon called VOICE that looks exciting but we'll see if it's any good when it launches. source: voice.com/
Finally, I want to thank JoergSprave for this forum and I hope to get involved and do whatever I can to change this future nightmare from happening.
