"He acts like he has no family"

:Navajo proverb from a Tony Hillerman novel
Raised Jewish, Zuckerberg once identified as an atheist, yet has since revised his views. In 2016, he said: "I was raised Jewish and then I went through a period where I questioned things, but now I believe religion is very important."

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said last week that the company is reviewing its policies, including rules that allow for the discussion about the use of state force. Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan said in a letter posted to Twitter on Thursday that they're "deeply shaken and disgusted" by Trump's "divisive and incendiary rhetoric."

The Wall Street Journal had a chilling report a few days ago that Facebook’s own research in 2018 revealed that “our algorithms exploit the human brain’s attraction to divisiveness. If left unchecked,” Facebook would feed users “more and more divisive content in an effort to gain user attention & increase time on the platform.”

Mark Zuckerberg shelved the research.

It was a post by mnaz about "the platform"

Facebook is Jewish
Steve Zuckerman is a dydybbuk (Yiddish: word for algorithm .

I can't be any better than I recognize
they say bill gates is evil, and John D Rockefeller was too
I have heard it said that hip capitalism is pig capitalism

thanks for answering my shout out 8)

The Age of Information. What foolish false hopes I had for it. Ages of Fear, and built-in ignorance. It goes back 5000 years if you count the Bible. I guess the key is to not think too much about shit, because that shit just multiplies and you still need to feed the machine the next morning when you get up, and time and populations get away from us sometimes, never to be heard from again, and the least anyone can do is try to remember when compassion or empathy at least seemed somewhat reasonable..

what foolish false hopes I have for redemption
remember ~k?
I always thought
redemption was a given

30 years from anything

we are like clocks struck dumb
a harsh and bitter chord that
sends it's ripple down
tomorrow's spine

we are like her friends
a portrait of enchanted
intentions

past like rivers
hold forever
spellbound

Spinoza would say he is not evil, he is coy about his ethics.

Cut & Paste:

THE MEDIA EQUATION
What’s Facebook’s Deal With Donald Trump?


“Mark’s deal with Trump is highly utilitarian,” he said. “It’s basically about getting free rein and protection from regulation. Trump needs Facebook’s thumb on the scale to win this election.”
