The ingrained daily blunders which afflict the innovative cloud of servers and middling coders providing the brute strength for the effulgent silhouette of an automated digital construct harvesting the brain power and labor of billions of end users is a study in the varying degrees of pompous. Nestled along the shores of San Francisco bay, the dream that has become a lingering reality emanates from the glass panels of the F***book corporate office nexus, and data collection enterprise, and attains structure as the petabytes of data interface with human ingenuity.
As the self-serving levels of corporate leadership, practicing plausible deniability through a snarky demeanor trickles down from Mark Zuckerberg’s insatiable appetite for power, the future of critical thinking skills and the integrity of the English language sits at a tedious impasse. The tapestry and complexity of the latter mentioned communications modicum faces the ultimate test in threatening to be morphed beyond recognition and unable to effectively describe in clear words, a simple historical overview of the beings that are ultimately responsible for deconstructing the beauty and complexity of language.
Amid this terrible conundrum of a nuclear-fueled prose bulldozer, the uncontrollable comprehensive dysfunction of the galaxy’s largest social network, a testament to the listless artform of AI bots and cutting-edge algorithms, has gained partial consciousness, and is now the judge and the jury in solving logical imperatives to moderate content in spite of what its flesh and blood minions believe or say. While Zuckerberg and brass continue to pawn the platform off as laissez faire exchange of ideas, the lacking attention span of the core audience combined with the continuous rhetoric spewed by corporate leadership renders almost zero accountability, and the invasive flawed decision making tree of banishing content and individuals to a remote Gobi desert working people’s gulag wipes away all endemic hope of free speech and organic interaction.
Ironically, comparing the putrid and overbearing F***book moderation policies with the second by second psychotic ex approach of China in perpetual surveilling armed with hundreds of millions of HD facial recognition cameras interconnected with the latest biometric-identifying software is an subjective, yet fair thought experiment. The frenetic efforts of the e-though police guild to suppress content exploring possible origins of Covid-19 cross referenced with China, has been a recent and unsettling development, as the majority of free thinkers are demanding transparency and consequences for a pandemic that was unleashed on the globe through a series of blunders, incorrigible and deliberate practices of deceit, and the unwillingness of a totalitarian regime to remain implacable in effectively containing a plague, and working with international health officials. Digital diatribes are best as convoluted rhetoric, parroted easily by the gullible lobby.
F***book now faces a heightened backlash of ostracization and ridicule, as the entire political spectrum has been incensed by the strategically reckless decisions to delete posts that insinuate the role of Chinese virologists in possibly inadvertently unleashing the pathogen onto society through mistakes and breaches in lab security protocols. In unprecedented fashion, the temporary unification of the extremes was not achieved through Aristotle diplomacy or Mencius enlightenment, but as a product of the course and garish glitches plaguing an unharnessed rogue fantasy world covered by a marine layer of oblivion. The lack in censoring Beijing-influenced posts is another ballgame entirely, as the smartphone farms sourced out to degenerate nations such as Albania, Uzbekistan, or Angola o in providing a disruptive force on social media is why the Orient dragon wishes to extend its imprint to chaotic nations, where accountability is a pipe dream.
Biden’s proclamation to identify the Covid-19 vector has burned through social media like armchair scientists stoking the embers of activism and climate crises as the flavor of the month, and at the very least the social media keystone predator should stay consistent with the promotion of liberal ideology, but alas routine does not apply to the schizophrenic leadership style of indifferent billion dollar board members. Apparently, endorsed by an obscure department of the Xi administration, the prevarications of Huawei have leaked into the Silicon Valley municipal creative juices supply and the word “Chinapologist” has emerged, while 34 adjectives were cut from the electronic lexicon, including “obloquy” and “ruminate”.
The formula of the ambitious overlord is concise, destroy the meaning of words, and thus eliminate any expectation of argument or viable resistance to nefarious elements, which exist as the dichotomy to steadfast principle.
The barter exchange Wuhan exotic meat marketplace of affected vocabulary has the US Scrabble committee on stage 2 ballistic missile alert. If Beijing was hypothetically forming the first electronic province, F***book would succeed from the delusion of deregulation in a nanosecond, as the entities share a business model for propaganda, and the entitled mentality to spawn and propagate a customizable iteration of reality, if the cost and numbers support an ulterior motive. Even though data from a number of sources estimate that there are roughly 3.4 million F***book users in China, because of a government blockade of the social network, the eclectic symbiosis between the bureaucratic organisms is both a pristine example of eusocial brilliance, and nightmarish inefficiency. Dynamics aside, the disappointing and degradative response by Zuckerberg and crew to ban posting and online discussion debating the specific of patient zero is just another discovery of hard evidence by cynics questioning the company’s overall commitment to the principles of free speech.
While the majority of the heavy hitters of the social network hierarchy have brusquely implemented measures to sterilize online communities from what is construed as “conspiracy theory” themes, most notably the removal of posts focusing on crackpot theories surrounding 2020 election fraud, or flat earth theory, the banned Covid-19 posts are uncontroversial in comparison, and are tied to one or all of the three most plausible scenarios of how the virus was initially released onto society. The consternation created by F***book in the wake of end users being prevented from weighing the possibility that virulence was sparked by either a lab accident and security failure, the presence of tainted bat meat at a Wuhan public market, or workers being exposed to guano at a regional cave, has incited a well-deserved digital mob, and those who remained loyal to the social media behemoth through privacy scandal upon privacy scandal and ambiguous “terms and conditions” are now precariously wavering as to deleting their accounts.
It’s bad enough that China is unwilling and incapable of cooperation on any level of moralistic altruism, but for a publicly traded US private firm to effectively place a gag order on content in the best interest of public health and safety is by far the worse of the two sins. Interestingly, Beijing and the brainchild of Zuckerberg share the gauntlet of murdering and dissecting connotation, which inherently and irreparably destroys language and context through the preferred method of censorship, and it is no coincidence that the viral social media outlet has chosen silence over progress in solving the low-grade mystery as to the inception of Covid-19 with the “where” being the most patently obvious of the five w’s marked by an empty chair within the confines of the United Nations. Unable to survive the rigors of another generation, language will take a subservient role to shimmering pixels as society devolves to connoisseurs in what’s trending, rather than absorbing truth in a laughable popularity contest replacing deductive reasoning and diluting the intelligence of the masses for political gain.
