It is no longer exaggeration to say that the collusion between social media and media to manipulate our reality for the benefit of their political agendas has reached Stalinist proportions.

In fact Stalin’s propaganda machine was relatively weak by comparison. Imagine if he had had control of social media technology, how would things have turned out then? What would our understanding of that history be today? It’s scary to think about.

Given that Stalin was in power in 1929, the “media” wasn’t exactly what we see now. Stalin controlled all newspapers & radio in the Soviet Union. Soviet Union didn’t have a party system, let alone the ability to choice who to watch or who to root for. I’d be very careful here.

Granted but those outlets were not insidious platforms. The way social media selects for behavioural change over time is customized and interactive per individual. So the power of one can’t be compared to the other in my view. This is more dangerous I believe.

Do you think social media platforms are threatening democracy, Sean?

I honestly think they are threatening more than that. Our humanity is at stake because they are selecting for behaviors over generations that are destabilizing to our ability to create a cohesive society. It’s artificial selection on hyperdrive, we are being irrevocably changed.

They been doing that forever, news papers don;t print anything, they pick and choose whats best for them. Without the fairness doc they can turn tabloid with monopolies they can ban user content that competes with them.

Yes but this social media platform is completely new in the way it programs and incentivizes decentralization tribalism and anger.
