Us vs them: the sinister techniques of ‘Othering’ – and how to avoid them | Inequality | The Guardian
Exclusion and dehumanisation [...] [ It's not just the economy, stupid. ] Conservative elites know how to strategically create and use fear of a perceived Other, by organising and manufacturing fear. [... manufacturing consent - Chomsky - Facebook Newsfeed is the perfect personal propagandist.] [...] Part of the solution to Othering must come from the stories we tell. // >> Facebook is the perfect personal propagandist (ppp) for nationalistic fear mongering fake news us vs them stories. <<

Roger Cohen on Trump and the Erosion of American Greatness - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"To refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain 'the last best hope of earth' for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.

Social media firms under scrutiny for 'Russian meddling’ - BBC News
Facebook, Twitter and Google lawyers defended themselves to US lawmakers probing whether Russia used social media to influence the 2016 election.
The three firms faced hard questions at a Senate panel on crime and terrorism about why they missed political ads bought with Russian money. &! - Francis Fukuyama - This is not the situation that prevails in today’s internet world. There are not a variety of competing platforms with differing points of view; rather, there is Facebook, which has become a sort of global utility. [ creating for each their own bubble own world, enabling to reject, deny reality in spite of fact. Orwell on nationalism: - Indifference to reality ] ESPECIALLY when the user is the product, sold to corporates. Keep users more and more clicking = keep making more and more money. &! Displayed in their dedicated teams in-house support for Trump campaign! $85m. Client satisfaction and profit maximisation. --- &!

29C3 in Hamburg: Jacob Appelbaum spricht auf dem CCC-Kongress - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Not my Department", dafür bin ich nicht zuständig, das Motto der Veranstaltung. Das Zitat wird in einem Lied dem Raketenbauer Wernher von Braun zugeschrieben. Zwar ist er dafür zuständig, dass die Raketen starten, aber wo sie wieder herunterkommen - das sei nicht sein Fachgebiet.
