RE: When Is a Censor Not A Censor? The Wider Implication of Downvote/Cancel Culture on Hive.

in Proof of Brain3 months ago

I've started posting on web 2.0 on a blog (paid subscriptions)...Now in double figures (just).
It's not as fun as being on social media - but then again, it hasn't been fun for the last 8 months or so, so no loss.

DPoS and it's mechanisms are old, not new - it's digital feudalism.
You have to depend on favors and hope for no negative eye from your large stakeholder 'overlords'.

The cabal enrich themselves while giving the appearance of 'community'.
Downvotes profit them directly.
Collusion, discrimination, and vindictive behavior by the man children that run this place, will ensure it's demise ('woke mob technocracy'?...what could possibly go wrong?lolol) ...Martin Luther King is rolling in his grave, I'm sure.

Seeing the abhorrent treatment of so many accounts on here has only motivated me to spread the word - and reality - of what DPoS/hive, is.

Rather than discuss anything, (because they know they sit on a castle built on sand?)...they try to suppress via financial terrorism.(I'm sure they would erase accounts if they could, but their own technology won't allow for it).

People from outside of this ecosystem are watching events closely, I can assure you of that.

They might be good coders, but have a severe lack of social skills/understanding of human psychology.
Or are intentionally driving the model as is, for ideological purposes - ie the global technocracy model. - Klaus Schwabs 'stakeholder capitalism' ( communism)

Sort:

Well, it's washed and repurposed for the modern "digital" age as there was no digital way back when ;) Stakeholder capitalism where the plutocratic rich rule everything and get the most say in what happens... because MONEY. DPoS and the Great Reset/4IR for the win right? :P

Nah, a significant portion (majority?) of the population doesn't give two shits about that. Games and entertainment, having fun, etc are what matter. All you need is Splinterlands to make Hive more valuable.

I am part way through reading The Great Reset.. It's painfully over mentalisation of reality so far and I feel it is deliberately 'nice' at the beginning and gets a lot worse, so I imagine it is going to get even more painful to finish reading!

History shows that without sustained, real empathy (something of a rarity in humans) those with the biggest bank accounts always take actions that lead to pyramid systems of control and generally take obvious actions to try to cover up their intentions.

That model only applies when time is in abundance - decadence - and that will be coming to end shortly...
Cultural zeitgeist will be changing - and along with it - unproductive time.

Bread and circuses ;) Time tested and works. It's not going anywhere even in hard times, it will be even more desirable in dreadful times for more escapism than now :P UBI is going to enable all this to continue a lot more easily in the ever increasing darkening days. What's your web2.0 site? Drop a link.

When reality hits - hard- I think not, tbh.
(and I'm an optimist!)

I'm keeping it totally separate from any accounts associated with this cesspit - for now, at least.

Different name, different everything.
(no offence to you matey, I can assure you).

Most roads lead to Rome! Thanks for your comments. Ultimately a decentralised community is driven by whoever takes the most action to drive it - so while it's understandable to want to complain, at the same time people can always take matters into their own hands.

whoever controls the code controls the behavior

politics is simply an argument about enforcement mechanism

In a sense but it ALL relies on the consent of the governed. In other words, the intimidating form of government and policy enforcement is powered by the denials of billions of people.
