Censorship: How AI/ChatGPT will be used to control speech and thought

ChatGPT is inherently broken. It is now answering questions based specifically on the political ideology of those who programmed the system. This proves my earlier contention that The AI will be used to control entire populations by controlling speech and thought itself. ChatGPT is extremely dangerous as presently implemented.

Ultimate in fake news: BBC documentary used deep fakes to hide interviewees faces

Filmmakers used an AI to swap the faces of anti-government protesters in Hong Kong for those of actors to protect the protestors’ identities while maintaining their facial movements and emotional expressions Source: BBC documentary used face-swapping AI to hide protesters’ identities | New Scientist Once you start this process – the video equivalent of National Geographic re-arranging the Great Pyramids for a cover shot – confidence in your reporting goes to zero.

WSJ: Facebook routinely exempts the elite from its content moderation

WSJ: Facebook routinely exempts the elite from its content moderation

Facebook completely controls public discourse in a totalitarian fashion. The WSJ reveals internal FB documents showing that FB “white lists” up to 6 million accounts world wide to get exemptions or special treatment from content moderation. The FB system applies to both FB and Instagram, and tends to include politicians (even down to the local city council level), actors, news media, sports personalities, academics – even those with very large followings on social media.

Because the FB content moderation system makes frequent errors, FB wanted to avoid the publicity that happens when a prominent person was censored by FB – thus, they excluded elite people from the system.

Through this system, Facebook controls public discourse – everyone can speak equally except some can speak “more equally than others” (to paraphrase Animal Farm).

The company has lied to the public about this system in the past, claiming that everyone was treated equally. But they are not. When public speech is censored by Facebook, Facebook becomes the arbiter of all information. In this case, FB has decided that elite members of society are more important than you or I and are given special speech privileges. Imagine the impact this has when some can promote (propagandize) their views but others are denied that option.

Facebook is a true menace to society.

Under Facebook’s new censorship program “Content from government agencies and health organizations, however, will be exempt from the changes, Facebook said.” Because WHO and CDC have been 100% accurate since the beginning of 2020. Isn’t that nice?

Instagram’s new Data Policy – And why I deleted the Instagram app yesterday

Instagram’s new Data Policy – And why I deleted the Instagram app yesterday

Instagram introduced new Terms of Service, which caused many of us to re-read them, as well as the various linked policies. Facebook/Instagram log everything about you – including your SMS messages, your address book, information about nearby Wi-Fi access points, other devices on your network – and can integrate FB’s own collection with offline purchases at retail stores.

I had deleted the FB app long ago and last night I deleted the Instagram app. I do not believe it is safe to use any Facebook company application.

How Big Tech uses propaganda methods to control your thoughts

Google has selected an odd assortment of science “subgroups” to emphasize on its Google News page. This choice, by Google, has ramifications for your attention and perspective on issues – and may even steer you away from learning about other areas of science. In effect, Google News may be operating a subtle propaganda outlet, intentionally steering our attention to topics that Google wants us to see, while steering us away from topics Google would prefer we not see.

Twitter may be in trouble for privacy violations

Twitter may be in trouble for privacy violations

Twitter has been leaking personal information to 3rd parties for a year. Twitter has also been making “inferences” or assumptions about each of us to aid in targeted advertising. In my own case, Twitter and Facebook have both made false inferences – yet they use these false assumptions to target ads – and presumably to curate our news feeds. We only see what Twitter and Facebook wants us to see – which is literally machine driven propaganda.
