The Declaration of Independence boldly states: "When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."
Thomas Jefferson, writing on behalf of the independent-minded colonists in 1776, backed up the Declaration's conclusion with numerous examples of British tyranny, stating: "To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world."
Compare them to the United States and global system we live under today. Are we now free? Examine the balance of power between individuals, endowed with natural rights by God, and government, Constitutionally bound to only limited powers, as well as the leading corporations of the private sector.
A 1946 national archive film released by Encyclopedia Britannica titled "Despotism" outlines several yardsticks for measuring the balance of power of a free society and that of an outright a despotism, according to scales of respect, power, economic distribution and information.
Concentrated power and wealth, centralized information and monopolistic or oligopolistic control in any one of these areas tends to negatively affect the others, and renders freedom a mere illusion. "Look beyond fine words and noble phrases," the analyst in the archive film warns. The rhetoric of freedom in America or anywhere else on planet Earth is irrelevant if the power, wealth and opportunity resides in the hands of just a few, or worse a single entity. By any yardstick, society today is very far gone; the once free United States of America is far down the path of dictatorship, though it keeps wrapped in the stars and stripes of the flag and the lofty words of its founding ideals. Now what? It is the duty of free people to seek and demand a better society once again.
In this anti-fascist film produced by US Military in the wake of WWII, the producers deconstruct the politically motivated social engineering of Germany by the Nazi regime. Its argument is just as timely today, in the wake of main stream mega corporations literally doing the exact same thing in present day through censorship on social media. The exact same mind control that worked in Germany during WWII, is being used on all of us right now. The only difference being that in the 21st Century we have much more efficient and sophisticated tools for manipulating the minds of the masses, than existed back in Hitlers time.

This alarming program reveals the daily battle between the Internet’s outlaws and the hackers who oppose them by warding off system attacks, training IT professionals and police officers, and watching cyberspace for signs of imminent infowar. Through interviews with frontline personnel from the Department of Defense, NYPD’s computer crime squad, private detective firm Kroll Associates, X-Force Threat Analysis Service, and several notorious crackers, the program provides penetrating insights into the millions of hack attacks that occur annually in the U.S. – including one that affected the phone bills of millions and another that left confidential details of the B-1 stealth bomber in the hands of teenagers. The liabilities of wireless networks, the Code Red worm, and online movie piracy are also discussed.
Web Warriors is a documentary that defines the conflict, establishes the stakes, and reveals the combatants in the escalating global battle taking place in cyber space. The film features computer hacker Michael Calce (aka Mafia Boy) who explains how as a 15 year old student he shut down Yahoo, Amazon, CNN, and Dell - from his bedroom. Viewers will watch grey hat hacker Donnie Werner (aka Morning Wood) as he comes face to face with the Russian cyber mafia as he searches for the creators of a new computer virus. Web Warriors is a wake-up call that we have entered the era of digital warfare where the stakes continue to escalate in a battle that now costs the global economy more than $500 Billion annually.
Holochain is an energy efficient post-blockchain ledger system and decentralized application platform that uses peer-to-peer networking for processing agent centric agreement and consensus systems between users. The key advantage of Holochain is that every device on the network gets its own secure distributed sub-network and can function independently while also interacting with all the other devices on the network for a truly decentralized edge computing solution.
More Americans than ever have come to realize that the Main Stream News Entertainers only care about creating drama to get you hooked on, so that their advertisers keep handing them more and more money. Money, not the truth, is all these corporations care about. No conspiracy required. Just pure greed.
The truth about all politics, and all systems in all countries. Wall Street runs the world, for one reason and one reason only: because we let them. Why do we let them? Because all people, all parties, left or right or any other: get too #triggered to face the obvious truth, and would rather laugh it off as conspiracy theory, or blame feminists on the left, or nazis on the right, or the Russians, or whatever people want to tell themselves to ignore the fact that by our collective willful ignorance, we allow morons to run the world. But hey, keep thinking its a made up delusional conspiracy theory. You'll have your time to get screwed enough by the system to finally see through it.
In the wake of Internet censorship going wild, a FULLY DECENTRALIZED INTERNET is not only what is needed, but what is being developed right now. Though these technologies are the "Model-T" of things soon to come, they are extremely important. Beaker. TOR. I2P. WebTorrent. The Safe Network. Holo / HoloChain. Solid. Retroshare. The list goes on. Censorship isn't merely a freedom of speech issue, it is a freedom issue. If you have a product or project for making real true positive change but malicious algorithms and deplatforming prevent people from sharing the data -- then the only ideas, projects, products and services you will be allowed to see: are those which continue to sew chaos, pollute the planet and destroy humanity. All for the sake of a select few ultra rich to revel in their limitless greed and thirst for power.
Foamy The Squirrel rants on the left-right paradigm dichotomy, collective stockholm syndrome, collective apathy, sjw entitlement attitudes, narcissism and the overall failure of humanity to take personal response-a-fuckin-bility.
No one hates Alex Jones more than Glenn Beck. However, even Glenn is against this outrageous censorship measure, as he rightly asks himself the question that every content creator is asking themselves: "Am I Next???".
Google Admits Intent to Manipulate Data. A damaging video of a Google internal meeting whereby top executives and co-founders discussed manipulating information on the internet. All attempts to contact Google on this matter were met with refusal by the company to respond. Although an hour long, it is encouraged that it is watched in its entirety.
This documentary is for all those who imagine that there is some sort of magic that renders the United States immune to the tyranny that has plagued every other major empire in history. DVDs of this video--in normal resolution and high definition--are available. Just search the Internet and you will find them.
In this video, Jackson Palmer explores Holochain - a new protocol for building decentralized apps, without a blockchain. They adopt an "agent centric" model and DHT (distributed hash table) for building and hosting apps in a decentralized way. To be clear: Jackson owns no Holo token and has no financial interest in the success/failure of the Holochain/Holo projects. :)
