In other words, he’s going to do it.
Pondering, my ass.

I know it predates him but it relates to his partners such as Bone Saw himself. And your regularly scheduled reminder that if you are still on Twitter because it’s a network of resistance: it’s not and never was. It was always compromised among other problems and this was known to actual Arab Spring organisers who actually weren’t on and didn’t use Twitter.

wow. well, if someone as smart as him can’t mire a company in debt, kill features, encourage hate speech, run nazi ads on the feeds of major brands, and make a profit - it must be the jews. :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:

That’s some kind of logic…

The company’s value has plunged since Musk’s purchase, and he said on Monday that the ADL “seems to be responsible for most of our revenue loss.” He said in another post that the organization’s “unfounded accusations” have kept advertisers away.

“They have much less power in Asia, so our ad revenue there is still strong,”

You know I didn’t really think about the dumb quote misattributed to Voltaire but actually by some Nazi “to learn who rules over you simply find out who you are not allowed to criticise”. I know it’s a fool’s game to point out every really stupid thing that deeply stupid man does and says but I’d like to parse that for a second.
It’s simply not true, those who are “in control” often stop certain criticisms as they are part of their hegemonic network, but not in control. I’m thinking in particular of religious beliefs which are privileged in so many situations. Just as a first approximation I’d suggest that those in power are those whom any criticism of is powerless. No matter the strength of your critique of hegemonic power it.doesn’t.matter. It’s so powerful that I can criticise. I can make a Barbie movie mocking patriarchal capitalism (within limits) but they’ll just make megabux off it.

Hmm… I think it depends on the situation, though and the type of power, yeah? Because authoritarianism is a thing that still exists in the world, where that is precisely how power is exerted (certain things being verboten). The capitalist west certainly works in that manner, absorbing all kinds of criticism in order to profit off of it… but there are places where what you say can get you arrested or even killed.

if i were to follow the argument maybe that means capitalism is strong and those dictators weak. dictators know they can’t weather the critics, capitalism is pervasive enough that is can.

( although maybe comparing a person to an economic system is apples to gravity. in that economic systems don’t have feelings. )

This is hardly an improvement from the last few months, where trying to view a profile while logged out would redirect you to the login page.

Galaxy brain indeed.

Our tests show that even if you have a pinned post, it won’t appear at the top of your profile feed when logged out, which defeats the point of a pinned post.

Much galaxy brain. Many dimension chess. (/s if it’s not obvious)

Maybe, but authoritarism thrives because of our general anger with captialism. And it’s on the march right now. We kid ourselves if we think that force can’t still shape the world.

And any number of political systems can exist within the capitalist system. They aren’t necessarily at odds.
