That’s why I stay off of Facebook, twitter, MySpace, and other social media services
For all the good it could have been its being recognized as a very potent weapon to control the masses that partake from it.
“Thats why I stay off of Facebook, twitter, MySpace, and other social media services”
I think they are stupid as well!
i can’t think of one reason to use one.
I'm with you. I got my fill of socializing with AOL years ago. I used to host a genealogy and Civil War chat room in the evenings. That was enough for me, and it got old real fast. I'm a fairly private person. If I want to socialize with anyone, I'll call them or send them an email. This site, and a UK archaeology-related site are the only two groups that I belong to.
Somethings can't be improved upon. Conservatives - particularly Tea Party activists, need to develop an alternative network of communication that can't be 'hacked' like the net.
The LDS church has a communications network that was set up decades ago, long before the net was heard of. It would still work today. They set it up primarily to reach and recall their thousands of missionaries and others around the world in the event of a some catastrophe.
HANG ON TO YOUR LAND LINES.
This system can be used to reach, literally, millions within an hour. It's so simple, the gov't wouldn't even suspect it - couldn't access it anyway.
Works like this:
Everyone in the network has a total of only ten names and numbers to call - to relay whatever message needs to get out.
The first person calls their list of 10.
These 10 immediately call their list. Within 5 minutes or less, 110 people have been reached.
Doesn't sound to efficient, eh? But stick with me ...
Those 100 make their calls = 1000 reached, who make their 10 calls = 10,000 x's 10 = 100,000 x's 10= 1,000,000. Remember, it explodes by 10 x's the last number on each round. By the end of an hour, many millions have been reached.
Also, each member has only ten names and numbers - which would make many dead ends for anyone trying to gather 'names and numbers.'. And the numbers could be scrambled in a code, really shutting off any tracing down.
It's so simple, it boggles the mind.
But we need to be establishing these phone banks - and using land lines. We need to be able to communicate when the despots shut down the net...Divide and conquer is a tool they need. Let's end run them before they strike. Too late after the horse has left the barn.
I’ve even been a little suspicious of some of the trolls on FR!!!
