'Net Neutrality' Comes to 'Linked in' Social Media
by Allen Williams
Recently, I received an e-mail from 'Linked-in', that 'other' Mountain View California platform, informing me of new changes to their user agreement. Since, Net Neutrailty is to dominate the Web, that wasn't a surprise. But, what's the big deal about Net Neutrailty you may ask yourself? Many of you reading this may already know about 'Linked-in', the supposed social network and on-line platform for professionals. So, what's the intent for this professional platform anyway? Well, it's a medium for promoting products and services to its members who in turn get to advertise themselves for potential employment around the country. Also, its monitored and a snitch just like Facebook and Twitter despite the obvious pretense of disassociating itself with the NSA. NSA uses this mediu m extensively according to Edward Snowden: "Job websites such as LinkedIn and Indeed.com contain hundreds of profiles that reference classified NSA efforts, posted by everyone from career government employees to low-level IT workers who served in Iraq or Afghanistan. ..Intelligence contractors and military personnel have been referencing classified programs on sites like LinkedIn and Indeed for years..After The Washington Post revealed details about the NSA’s Marina, Mainway and Nucleon databases on June 15, 2013, Soghoian tweeted out the results of one such LinkedIn search.
Searching Linked-in allows one to identify the various private companies in bed with the NSA. However, it may more likely be a convenient means of identifying and tracking the good, bad, and ugly, i.e. potential domestic terrorist threats as identified earlier by Homeland Security Chief, Janet Napolitano. So, what are the real intelligence goals and what are spoofs?: Al Jazeera continues their report: "..But Miller did not respond to a question about whether the NSA has reviewed or cleared any of the numerous LinkedIn and Indeed profiles that reference classified programs. She also did not respond to questions about whether the NSA monitors these sites for violations of its policies, or whether it has ever contacted individuals about profiles that reference classified information. LinkedIn and Indeed both declined to comment on the specific issue." Their silence suggests 'Linked-In' may also be a means of spoofing interested parties both on what surveillance capability really exists as well as a means to 'leak disinformation' that NSA wants out. But in either case, 'Linked-In' is a threat to free speech.
By far the most disturbing aspect of Linked-in is in its use as a hacking medium: "SAN FRANCISCO (CNNMoney) -- If you use LinkedIn, you've probably told the site where you work, what you do and who you work with. That's a gold mine for hackers, who are increasingly savvy in using that kind of public -- but personal -- information for pinpoint attacks."
Here are some of the 'Linked-in' User agreement clauses to be wary of: "We may change or discontinue any of our Services. We can't promise to store or keep showing any information and content you've posted." A subsequent paragraph further clarifies: "You agree to only provide content or information if that does not violate the law nor anyone's rights (e.g., without violating any intellectual property rights or breaching a contract). You also agree that your profile information will be truthful. LinkedIn may be required by law to remove certain information or content in certain countries."
Who is anyone's rights? As determined by the FCC? The President? Expect that to also include everything the United Nations has ever published on supposed global human rights. And intellectual property? That potentially means something as innocuous as including the display of someone else's company logo in a news article that you publish. Obama is already on record for approving the news before it airs: “And so if we're going to change how John Boehner and Mitch McConnell think, we're going to have to change how our body politic thinks, which means we're going to have to change how the media reports on these issues and how people's impressions of what it -- what it's like to struggle in this economy looks like and how budgets connect to that. And that's a hard process because of -- that requires a much broader conversation than typically we have on the nightly news.”
That translates to Obama and his Federal Reserve masters didn't create America's financial mess. It was freedom and self determination that are responsible for America's demise. What is clearly being advocated here is a 'Ministry of Truth' under state control that will adjust people's minds as George Orwell has already elucidated. And, what better vehicle to begin with than social media? And, how better to control one's thoughts through a centralized medium that can blackball potential employees who do not hold to the official state narratives. It's already being done.
When you have a social media that determines what is or is not appropriate, then free speech is essentially D.O.A. Welcome to the globalist New World Order.
