I would like to share a few thoughts and invite comment.
I have been signed up to Twitter for a while but never used it, to be quite honest I never really liked it.
Anyway, It has occurred to me that as fine as this site is, along with every other site trying to fight this tyranny, we are, to a large degree, preaching to the converted. It is a good medium for the exchange of ideas etc but that does not get the message to those who are simply 'fitting in' by wearing masks etc. In general, they will not be joining these sites.
Over the last few weeks I have been paying a little more attention to twitter and although there are people on the site who share our views, I have found that there is an astounding amount of people who pretty much believe the government propaganda. I have converted a few already after having conversations and giving examples etc.
I have an idea, that we should be on sites like twitter, spreading the word as it were. Speaking to people who need just a little bit of evidence to 'see the light' . We would then really be increasing our numbers and in the long term, higher numbers, greater power.
Can I ask that we 'attack' twitter and convert these people? I have found that the ones I have spoken to are almost desperate for some sensible reasoning but are blinded by all the propaganda being aimed at them. As soon as I point out a few facts, give them some links etc, I get messages saying that they have changed their minds and are beginning to do their own research and finding out the true situation. This is an untapped resource that I think we Should exploit and EVERYONE can do their bit in the fight.`
Of course you will get the die hard"the government wouldn't lie to me" and they simply will not even entertain the idea that they are being lied to. I think they call it 'cognitive dissonance' where they will always deny everything. But we cant expect to win over everyone.
I go on Parler, but also try and educate others on comments section of Talkradio. Plenty of opportunity to awaken the sheeple.
Hi, which links do you send that get the most positive uptake?
Yes A lot of people are fearful not of the virus but of neighbours etc telling tales on them if they break these rules!!
How to break the fear? Francis Hoar has a good analogy on his twitter post about a lift.
I will continue to defend Twitter, if used wisely it has a wealth of information and the ‘camaraderie’ has sustained me during difficult times. Kemi’s post has made me think, on Thursday I took a ferry to NI the experience was chilling, a scene from 1984. The people I observed are not for changing. I was interrogated by the Scottish police before boarding, was my journey necessary and how long was I staying. Was it legal for the policeman to question me? Did he know if it was legal, maybe we’ve got to the point that legality doesn’t matter anymore.
I’m not on twitter which email did u use - ProtonMail?
Yes, Twitter has a mammoth user-base and engagement level but it is not an open platform and the trending comments are engineered to create the narrative and news hence distract people. Twitter is an echo chamber and those who dissent from the mainstream narrative will be silenced using one of the many growing censorship techniques. It seems logical to seemingly try and convert the 'masses' but I would argue that the masses are not on Twitter and those that are are not looking for a space with diversity of thought - they are comfortable being in a space where their ideology is the norm and all others are silenced. I wish that those of our mindset had more confidence in our voices and worried less about converting the masses, what is happening now is not the worst thing that has happened in history, it is literally building on prior atrocities - another chapter in the playbook and not even original this has been done before 40 years ago and 50 years prior - centralising of banking and creation of fiat currency; WWI, WWII; AIDs. At every point in history when humanity has been shafted by a demonic minority there has been a vocal margin dissenting, this margin were repeatedly failed by the lack of a critical mass or by the media distorting the fact that the majority were dissenters and because they thought they were the minority they dared not step out of line. The word critical is key because unless everyone who opposes what is happening ACTIVELY DISSENTS, we will be bystanders to one of the greatest conspiracies to shift the human race into overt slavery enmass and genocide. People need to see active dissent, not hear rhetoric and recitals of facts.
