21) No, Facebook is NOT “Private,” Their Censorship Arm is Government Funded
Facebook is not private. They are partnered with a NATO backed think tank to censor their platform that is funded by the US government.

22) The People “Stopping Election Interference” Are the Ones Who Are Actually Rigging the Election
“….as far as making the election more resistant to interference, the result of the Alternative Media Purge is the diametric opposite. People will now only get one side of the story.”

23) We need to look at the whole picture of what is going on and the ramifications of it all and some (some, but not all) of what we must do is connect with people more in person and don’t rely on the internet,
but as for internet use, you can look into alternatives to Facebook, Twitter and Google.
There are places like https://mewe.com and https://www.minds.com/ for social media.
Don’t rely on just one, we need some diversification.
We need alternatives to Youtube, one of which is being worked on at https://isegoria.com/
We need to fully move away from any cloud storage, document storage etc by Google and other corporate giants.
Search engines like https://duckduckgo.com are important because not only is it better for privacy, but search engines like Google at the very least customize search results based on your search history and info they have on you, so they are censoring from the start and malicious or not, it’s not the same result for everyone which is dangerous.
There are more but that’s a starting point for social media and searching.
More on search engines, privacy, securing your phone, internet and all smart devices is covered at
https://together4earth.one/the-issue-of-privacy-is-way-beyond-just-facebook/

24) As part of the issues listed above, we need alternatives to Youtube. Here’s one.
“Isegoria’s mission is to create an uncensored, blockchain-based, decentralized news and entertainment platform with a funding mechanism for independent media.

27) Here’s a list of outlets and places to find unfiltered news and info along with videos, reports of mainstream media bias/lies/distortions/censorship/ignoring important issues showing mainstream media bias so as to show how important it is to move away from mainstream media and to understand how they manipulate the people along with a commentary on how and why mainstream corporate media works as it does and isn’t reliable when looking for information or trying to form a factual image of what reality is.

Be aware, get informed, research from multiple outlets and sources, use common sense, think.

More will be added. Please stay aware and awaken others. This is obviously being done to try to erase any criticisms of the status quo, criticism of war and all the other problems we see, so stay aware, stay vocal and send anything in that needs to be added to this list.

Contact us with additions or corrections/updates.

Also copy this list to make sure there’s a backup. If you do that at least that part will be backed up, unless you make sure to keep your copy updated too.  Either way it’s not relying on one place.

Peace.
