Shoshana Zuboff: ?Surveillance capitalism is an assault on human autonomy?

quote [ ?Regulation,? she says, firmly. ?This is what the tech companies fear most. We say that markets that trade in human futures are illegal ? like the slave trade was made illegal.? Then we design ?programs as a closed loop? and ?reclaim the idea that we can have the digital without surveillance capitalism?. This will require the ?indignation? of citizens, journalists, scholars and law-makers. ]

This sounded like an educated source of opinions.

This is no game, Soldier

quote [ The devices would be used to assist Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, by stocking ?a state-of-the-art tactical training facility? in whose eerie design details we perhaps glimpse what immigration enforcement operations of the near future will entail. ]

And you're using my money for what?

Undercover in Patriot Prayer: Insights From a Vancouver Democrat Who's Been Working Against the Far-Right Group from the Inside

quote [ Since 2017, far-right groups have flocked to notoriously liberal Portland to march, yell, and engage in violent clashes with left-wing activists. Most of these demonstrations were planned by Patriot Prayer, a small coalition of Trump-supporting provocateurs based in Vancouver, WA.

Ben has marched alongside Patriot Prayer for nearly every major Portland demonstration?events with such vague names as ?Rally for Trump and Freedom,? "Freedom March," and "Trump Free Speech Rally."

What the far-right group didn't know was that Ben was a spy. ]

Andy Ngo, Who Became a Right-Wing Star, Leaves Quillette After Incriminating Video Appears - for those of you that may have been living under a rock the past few years, Andy Ngo is a supposed "journalist" who has becoming something of a poster boy for folks like our trolls these past few months because he was "attacked" by antifa and has claimed to have gotten brain damage.

Quillette is a right wing site that tends to push shit articles about stuff like race science and just recently was one of the few organizations willing to publish a pro-amazon warehouse work conditions article that was tweeted out by amazon's official twitter. Public outcry has since had Amazon delete the tweet.

Wow: Backstory Of Cathay Pacific CEO's Resignation | One Mile at a Time

quote [ Apparently this is also what led to Hogg?s resignation. According to media reports, China?s Civil Aviation Administration asked Hogg to hand over a list of Cathay Pacific employees who had participated in the protests.

According to these media sources, he did provide that report? but he put only put his own name on the list. ]

We all know what happens when good men do nothing.

A Walk In Hong Kong (Idle Words)

quote [ That is the Hong Kong I saw last weekend. I don?t know - I suspect no one knows - what will happen tomorrow. The only sure thing is that people will march. There are many Hong Kongers and other smart people writing online who can explain the political context of the protests, the likelihood of intervention, and what this means in a deeper way. I am just a visitor who perhaps thinks too much about fish cakes when being tear gassed. ]

Very close account of the Hongkong protests, obviously a little subjective.

Stun Belts Administer Shock Treatment in Court

quote [ Some states control defendants by making them wear 50,000-volt stun cuffs, but the practice is open to abuse. ]

But it's a couple more volts of shock treatment for you

Multiple victims reported in Gilroy, California Garlic Festival shooting

quote [ Police are responding to reports of a shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Northern California. Details were not immediately available about how many people were injured. ]

Still at large, "white male mid 30s"

Someone felt we needed black rag dolls to beat up to relieve our stress

quote [ In the instructions, buyers are told to take the black rag dolls ? which come with red, green, black and yellow hair made of yarn, styled in dreadlocks ? and ?find a wall to slam? them against. ]

I guess it was intended for the southern market and just misrouted.
