It's coming. The SJW's are bigoted and violent and their goal is to destroy our civilization. It's in their books. Do you know what the theory is behind "Critical Theory"? Attack everything critically and never defend yourself, just switch to a new attack. They will attack you. Buy a gun,

THE REVIVAL OF THE PROPAGANDA STATE - media.leeds.ac.uk
Understanding the Mechanisms of Propaganda - www.thebalancesmb.com

en.wikipedia.org

Censorship is the suppression of speech, public communication, or other information, on the basis that such material is considered objectionable, harmful, sensitive, or "inconvenient".[2][3][4] Censorship can be conducted by a government[5], private institutions, and corporations.

en.wikipedia.org

Propaganda is information that is not objective and is used primarily to influence an audience and further an agenda, often by presenting facts selectively to encourage a particular synthesis or perception, or using loaded language to produce an emotional rather than a rational response to the information that is presented.[2] Propaganda is often associated with material prepared by governments, but activist groups, companies, religious organizations and the media can also produce propaganda.

In a 1929 literary debate with Edward Bernays, Everett Dean Martin argues that, "Propaganda is making puppets of us. We are moved by hidden strings which the propagandist manipulates."[4][5]

I don't believe they wan't to destroy civilization, but certainly that is a repercussion/aftermath of their goal.

For instance take the phrase "to liberate human beings from the circumstances that enslave them.", seems somewhat reasonable. But it applies to everything...

In their view culture is enslaving, when it is also more liberating, allowing a better life; Critical Theory throws the baby out with the bath water.

Attack everything critically

Even Dodgeball ...

Marketing is information that is not objective and is used primarily to influence an audience and further an agenda, often by presenting facts selectively to encourage a particular synthesis or perception, or using loaded language to produce an emotional rather than a rational response to the information that is presented.[2] Marketing is often associated with material prepared by corporations, but activist groups, governments, religious organizations and the media can also produce marketing.

What is the theory behind "Critical Theory?"
Or is it turtles all the way down?

I am not surprised that some accounts that should not have been deleted have been deleted. The pendulum swung too far.

On its return, it will probably swing to far in laxness (wow, the spell checker accepted laxness. Who would have thunk.) but it will swing a little less far into laxness.

Eventually the pendulum will find a more central area. Yeah, it's not an easy process to go through, but why do you thik that the worthwhile goals are easy to attain?

This reminds me of highschool (90s) when we were trying to research for essays on the internet in the computer lab and most everything (even the useful info) was behind a firewall.

You need to question your school district why they prevented you from doing your research.

While you may think your problem is related to what YouTube faces, it is not.

This site got down-ranked on google. If I recall RCade was loosing two-thirds of his income. And look at what happened happened to the Wold Socialist Website just for not supporting Hillary.

They hate the Bill of Rights. Um, I mean the Slave Document.

What a deep pile of horse manure. So, I guess I could put you down as opposed to civil rights for blacks, gays, women, etc. Do you ever think about what you are going to post? Who here is against social justice? PLease identify yourselves.

Usually to get us to buy a product or service, not to get us to hate a minority or vote against our own best interests. Marketing is legitimate, propaganda is not, it is used for the detriment of our society. IT is Fox News.

Interesting how the trolls are always triggered by Social Justice. As though it was a bad thing.

"Marketing is legitimate, propaganda is not"

Marketing is propaganda, the camel's nose under the tent of manipulation, start with small lies, let medium be message, acceptance becomes truth.
Once upon a time there was the Fairness Doctrine & truth in advertising regulations.

"...if leisure and security were enjoyed by all alike, the great mass of human beings who are normally stupefied by poverty would become literate and would learn to think for themselves; and when once they had done this, they would sooner or later realise that the privileged minority had no function, and they would sweep it away. In the long run, a hierarchical society was only possible on a basis of poverty and ignorance."
"1984" George Orwell

"The Fischer case speaks to the inherent inanity of asking nameless, faceless Silicon Valley overlords to weigh things like journalistic intent. "

Sigh...people just have absolutely no clue in their heads that maybe they don't know everything. The obvious path of least resistance for people with low intelligence is to just blame whoever the popular entity is to blame, which right now is rich people. These same people are actually so dumb they think that technology can do everything we see in movies, instead of realizing that when you are dealing with a system that has a billion accounts, making one tiny change can impact many people inadvertently. Technology is not even close to being good enough to replace human reasoning but stupid people just keep on being stupid.

And I bet you actually think you have a clue about anything.

I have never seen any evidence of that here.

Comical to see the roaches whine and scream as they're removed.

The danger in propaganda lies in the economic and military power of the perpetrator of those lies. Thus The US Government is the most dangerous liar whereas Putin and HeRat are of lesser and lesser consequence respectfully. Assange is experiencing this danger first hand.

I am. I am for fairness and equal opportunity, but that is no longer the foundation of "social justice". We used to read Animal Farm and recognize the evil in Napoleon. SJW's read it and side with Napoleon. They don't want equality, because some animals are more equal than others.

"They don't want equality, because some animals are more equal than others."

It really is a spectrum, Mustang. Do you enjoy being characterized as being a Nazi for your support of Trump just because Nazis are also Trump supporters?

Nobody has to use YouTube. I haven't been on there in weeks. It's really not that hard.

The rightwing noise machine clamoring for government control of social media is downright terrifying.

#19 I think there are people who believe that social justice and equal rights means the same thing, and who choose to ignore the brown-shirt tactics of the far left in the misguided belief that the far left wants the same things they do. I have no such delusions. I know that there are elements of the far right with evil intent. I believe that once moderate democrats recognize the same flaws in the far left, we'll see the pendulum swing back.

It is always rich people. When wasn't it?

I think you make up a pretend world because it supplies your conspiracy theory world with characters. You run a movie in your brain and pretend it is reality. It's not even close to reality.

Legitimate journalists only work at MSNBC. Everyone knows this.

Oh look, Matt Taibbi is a respected journalist again now that he's turned his sights away from Russian fauxllusion. What a total surprise!
