Jan 24 2019 - I think I am close to finishing adding things to this channel so much. I wanna now try to process some of this into a few written articles as a sort of historical record for the context we find ourselves in. Mostly, the patterns are now getting predictable to the point where.. there's only so many ways you can say:
> Capitalism is fucking us, The Right-Wing is fucking us, Liberals is fucking us, Libertarians is fucking us, the Tech Industry & Silicon Valley is fucking us, The hallow culture of Americanization is fucking us, Imperialism is fucking us, Establishment Democrats are trained to not realize they are fucking us, and because of the influence we have in other countries, the issues we experience is regurgitated though other countries with their own problems, and eventually makes it way back here. We've succeeded in uniting the world, but we did it though negative peace and hate, which is stirring climate change.
I think the main issue is that there's only so much information you can collect before it's just the same statements, the same antidotes and the same recurring problems. This wasn't meant to be a current events and news channel, but sort of, examples of what happens when our economics, culture, planet, the mind, and the soul slowly decays over time in a systematic approach.
Condensing the Infopocalypse into field notes on the culture war.
Leaving a list of resources that's not from the usual news sources.
The last goal is important, because if I stop adding to the Infopocalyse full on, I'd like to leave some additional resources for others to reach out and explore if one is motivated or interested to do so.
I might clean up the recycled legacy channels as well as some stuff with this channel but I don't expect anything to be deleted outright. As much as this is a resource for myself, I'd like for it to be a resource for other people studying social aspects, as I don't think the context of 2000's - 2018 Internet should be collapsed. It's bad enough there has been lost culture due to the actions of various reactionaries in influential areas.
2020 would be a good stopping point honestly. Two decades of history on the commercialized Internet.
Jan 21 2019 - Safe to say that blocks have been re-arranged again. As a note to understand groupings, a lot of it is information about a situation, with comparable sensations, and an explanation of effects, either psychological, propaganda or goaded means. It's more of a timeline of how these effect critical thinking and history of it contributes to the development, not necessarily a chronological timeline. The development of commercialized, capitalism-based Internet and Social Media, is probably the most accurate historical timeline record of the combined subjects of Politics, Tech/Internet, and Psychological.
Aug 22 2018 - Attempting to archive Twitter threads in Info section of Are.na pages, because Twitter is garbage and information can vanish. :c (completed Jan 2019)
I'm just pulling info together for not only my own understanding but trying to sort out the mess caused by American imperialism in the technological age. If you are a professional researcher or know people, please use as a resource as long as you don't aid the status quo in psyops terrorism.
Don't care for being credited or anything else.
Tell all your friends and family about the infopocalyse and work on internet safety and psychological safety!
! General note for Are.na users for general things unrelated to this topic specifically:
If you post or upload information coming from a social media site like Twitter or Tumblr, I'd recommend pasting in the Description box, because a lot of online archive sites are blocked by robots.txt, or can be pulled offline at anytime.
> Q. Why did you add a inconsequential item like a cartoon show, media clip or a YouTuber?
> A. It's more related than you think. Consider these allegorical understandings as you read between other articles.
