So, according to Facebook and the Atlantic Council, I am now a “dangerous individual,” you know, like a “terrorist,” or a “serial murderer,” or “human trafficker,” or some other kind of “criminal.” Or I’ve been praising “dangerous individuals,” or disseminating their symbols, or otherwise attempting to “sow dissension” and cause “offline harm.”
You are not alone! Many of us agree with you and feel the same.
"The point is, apparently, the Corporatocracy feel sufficiently threatened by random people on Facebook that they are conducting these COINTELPRO-type ops. Seriously, think about that for a minute. I am not Stephen King or Margaret Atwood. I’m not even Glenn Greenwald or Matt Taibbi. I’m a midlist-level author of unusual literature..."
It is far worse than folks realize. I'm not even an author and did nothing but Twitter from about 2008 and in December 2020 my entire account was permanently banned with false claim of running multiple spam accounts and 457,000+ tweets mostly toxic history was deleted. There was never any content flagged but I strongly suspect the GoF links and history of EcoHealth as BioPort Labs hit a nerve at the time.
My appeals note there has been one static URL, the same email and phone since the account was opened got replies about two minutes after submission that restated the original false accusation with blather about community standards. Truth hurts toxic profiteers and they have targeted the nobody users on the bottom too. Who knows how many like me with no platform exist. On the bright side it drove me to Substack and a wonderful world of alternate voices!! :~)
Only 13 likes and 2 comments? Deserving of far more, CJ. It must be those pesky reality police infiltrating Substack. Seriously, though - no, wait, that was serious - your articles are eminently re-readable to tune one's brain that has been rendered unto discord.
