Quick word about online trolls
Hey there I've been lurking here since the site's inception and wanted to send a message to the community.
I was born on a computer and have seen every informational bubble that there is to see in the US. From dailykos to breitbart to infowars to Anonymous irc groups to Wikileaks and sites like cryptome.org to state-controlled propaganda machines like Fox, CNN and now apparently Youtube (thanks google).
I've watched social media's rise and fall into the consolidated and heavily censored forum it is today. I've searched for and stumbled across released government documents in my quest to soothe my boredom that have rendered me forever skeptical of any official narrative.
I wanted to say that I know most of you are above the cut and are familiar with paid online shills and some of their tactics which helps innoculate this site against disinformation.
However, there is a tactic used when the trolls are not able to disrupt their targets, and that is discouragement.
It usually goes something like this, "Why are we fighting anyway? Sure we might be right but they are simply too strong to fight and we should just stop trying"
We all get discouraged by this extremely sick and probably dying world, but it is something that is weaponized by our enemies.
If all hope was lost, they wouldn't be putting up a fight themselves. If there was no hope that the common person could influence our elections to work in their favor, there wouldn't be so much desperate and immoral work done against us.
Do not give in to the lies. "The Powers That Be" benefit very much from you believing that they are more powerful than they really are. The only option is to fight. The only choice you will make is the one that brings mankind together. We can change it just probably won't come easily or in the form we'd hope for but rest assured we have won incredible, unbelievable victories in the hearts and minds of an enormous amount of normal people.
Our influence will not go away nor be forgotten. This latest generation is mostly immune to political bullshit (except alt-right white supremacists v2.0 or pro-hillary cultists of personality). The only way they can rid us of our suspicion at this point is to kill us all and being semi-sentient parasites I doubt they want to kill their host.
Well that's all I wanted to say. Sorry this isn't more thought out but if I had to make it perfect I'd never write anything!
