1994 Article Predicted 2016 Political Reality (read description under video)

Tuesday, January 17, 2017

Here’s a description of why this article is so prophetic.

0:25 – 0:57 – New information technology has been turned to malign ends. This is talking about the people who have realized they can publish fake news and profit with advertising. The “hearts’ desires” part is talking about how we can feel our political views are validated, all because we found a page that agrees with us.

1:03 – 1:26 – It could be said that this is talking about the information we give to websites like Facebook.

1:26 – 1:46 – This is talking about how we have the desire to only follow the pages that make us feel good, and hide the pages that make us feel bad. It also talks about how people can write false stories and publish them directly to the people who have chosen, using their emotions instead of facts, to follow the pages.

1:47 – 2:16 – This is talking about how we can “master” the virtual world so that it can be “completely shaped to our wishes”. You could say this is talking about how you can show the pages that make you feel good in terms of your political views, and hide the pages that challenge your views and make you think.

2:18 – 2:52 “People will exploit it” is talking about the people who run fake news pages. But this also says that they have the right to publish false news stories. They may not have this right on Facebook since it’s a business with terms and conditions, but people have the right to publish fake news on a website that they own.

2:52 – 3:10 – The people this part is talking about who “have built yet another pharaonic monument to wealth, avarice and indifference” is all of us who participate in publishing and/or reading fake news.

While some may say fake news has been around for a long time, I believe today’s fake news problem is primarily about the internet, and not so much television news or newspapers.

    CNN, You single-handedly handed Trump the victory by circle-jerking your own myopic agenda driven misinformation to the constituency that depends on you for correct perspective. See you in 2020.

  3. WEAKKNEED says:

    Trump is a fool and he appeals to fools, who sadly are a significant part of the American midwest and south. 2,9 million more Americans voted against Trump, but just 44,000 fools elected dumbshit electors in support of the clown prince.
