His most recent book, The New Human Rights Movement, delivers a startling expos about the violent oppression that defines our economic order, while issuing an urgent call for global activism to unite to replace it.

          Why free speech in social networks is essential and where to find it.

          For those old enough to remember the early days of the internet, true free speech is not mythical! Early social and community sites rarely - if ever - took action to censor or delete users. I fondly recall my time at tribe.net, where people helped each other to learn, to balance and deal with their issues instead of censoring them. Today though, corporates, governments and 'special interests' use censorship on a daily basis under the guise of 'protecting' us from threats that we aren't apparently mature or intelligent enough to see for ourselves.

          Today we have a handful of mega sites with billions of people interacting 24 hours a day. The systems that run these sites have become ever more complex and automated, able to use machine learning and other forms of artificial intelligence to enforce rules of all kinds constantly. It is understandable that with so many people communicating through such platforms, that their operators would seek to improve the quality of the experience of their users by attempting to automate account management systems that highlight users who are excessively anti-social or operating illegally. However, it is clear that these systems are often used to cause people problems who are not anti-social and who are simply attempting to discuss ideas that the site's operators intend to be silenced.

          Censorship on Mainstream Social Networks

          While some will say that free speech is not a right in a private setting, evidenced by the fact that you may eject someone from your home if you don't like what they are saying - the internet is not the same as a home. If technology corporations with budgets of billions of dollars end up carrying more than 50% of the entire traffic of the internet, then it becomes difficult for anyone to avoid using their services if they intend to use the internet to be heard publicly. If subsets of the population are denied access to such tools, while others are not, then information available online will be hugely skewed. The biasing of information is hugely desirable to those who seek power over others and wisdom says than in the face of 'fake news' and misinformation, the sensible solution is to promote the education of research techniques that help us to find the truth, rather than dictating from on high what the truth is and blocking out access to other material and voices.

          We cannot have balance in society while some are drowned out by those with the most money and technological reach. Sooner or later pressure will build and we will see more and more of the kind of activity we have seen in France in recent months, with large numbers of people clashing with police due to frustrations of not being heard and of being overpowered by their politicians. We cannot create real balance while censoring each other as to censor is to overpower and both are themselves forms of imbalance. Personal responsibility must take the place of 'voices of authority' trying to make decisions for other people.

          Many will not realise the extent to which information is being hidden until they themselves attempt to share information via the web that is of a nature that the controllers do not want to spread. They will find that their comments are not read by people who previously were very engaged with their posts. They may find the features of the site they regularly use start to fail inexplicably and in some cases their entire profile may be suspended, often without a meaningful explanation.

          Free speech social networks?

          Thankfully, there are a variety of social media platforms that do value true free speech and who will rarely if ever step in to censor content. Generally, they do recognise that not ALL content has a place on the web - and all (that I know of) will step in to remove content that is evil and illegal (such as child abuse media), but will not get involved in attempting to silence opinions and thoughts just because they are unpleasant to some people. From a social and psychological perspective, it is actually healthier for us to see the mind state of other people and to then be able to develop methods of helping the more disturbed among us to find balance, than it is to pretend they simply don't exist.

          Some sites, such as those powered by the Steem blockchain, use open source technology that is not technically owned by anyone, to provide a backbone for free speech conversation to take place. The sites that use the database of the blockchain to store their content may censor content to some extent (usually only when faced with legal demands to do so), but the raw data of the posts themselves will still remain accessible on the blockchain for those who want to view it. Technically, content can still be removed from the blockchain if those who collectively run the blockchain agree to it, but this is rare since the kind of extreme content that would require this to be done is rarely posted there.

          Other sites, such as minds.com, gab.com (and dissenter, their commenting system that allows comments to be written about any page on the internet) do have more of a centralised structure, but also respect free speech as much as possible. This site, Ureka.org, is also another free speech friendly place.

          The nature of ureka.org is to be a space for healing and so direct attacks against people are taken very seriously here - however, rather than troubled and aggressive people facing automated banning, they are first likely to be presented with the more humane option being asked to enquire within themselves why they are being anti-social and if more constructive behaviour is possible for them. Ureka is a non commercial site, so direct advertising is usually classed as spam and may attract post deletion, however, there is no censorship of posts just due to the beliefs of the writer and nature of their opinions.

          Free thinking for the win!

          Free speech is about more than just respecting each other enough to allow each other to be able to speak openly. Free speech allows free thinking to take place and it is only through free thinking that we can innovate and find solutions to problems that have their roots in dysfunctional traditions, habits and belief systems that may seem 'normal' to those who adopt them, but which ultimately cause suffering and can be improved upon. If we are stuck with controlled narratives and limited thinking, then we ourselves are limited and can never reach the true greatness we deserve!

          If you or anyone you know has experienced censorship by social networks, search engines or other online services, let us know in the comments below - we'd love to hear your story. If you want to support free speech online, why not share ureka.org with your friends too?

                odd that after the chats we've had today, ura soul,

                that i found this post after a search for: get this: "the rolling stones."

                 

                 i had sort of assumed that the Stones were sort of joking about Satan,and 'Their Satanic Majesties'

                was sort of a wry put down of English government,  I play a lot of guitar,

                and I just can't help thinking that Keith Richards is a true lover of blues, blues

                 

                guitar stylings and where they come from. I feel love and raw passion from the Stones.

                debauched and legendary and full of drugs as they might be.  ah, well.

                 

                Not so much, led zeppelin.

                  Capitalist Denial - Danny Shine & Ura Soul @ London Crypto Currency Show 2018
                  I recently met up with Danny Shine at the London Crypto Currency show and we talked about some of his recent experiences following his trip to anarchopulco and his interview with Jeff Berwick (aka Dollar Vigilante). Does Anarcho Capitalism breed the same kind of systematic violence and overpowering that capitalism does? How do we find real balance and resolve our denials, plus help others to do the same?

                    During his View From The Top talk, Chamath Palihapitiya, founder and CEO of Social Capital, discussed how money is an instrument of change which should be used to make the world a better place. “Money drives the world for better or for worse. Money is going to be made and allocated – you have a moral imperative to get it and then use it to make a difference.“

                      The Man Who Founded The World's First Voluntaryist Nation! - Vít Jedlička on Liberland
                      Josh Sigurdson sits down with Vít Jedlička, the President of The Free Republic of Liberland to talk about why he started the world's first voluntaryist micro-nation. The country is situated between Serbia and Croatia. Vit talks about his anarcho-capitalist national flag, complete with a yellow and black design. He tells people how to immigrate to the country and the influx of immigration he's seen in recent days. The country is also home to voluntary taxes (or donations) which fund infrastructure free of extortion. Vit insists he will be the last president of Liberland. The country accepts Bitcoin and is quickly developing its free monetary system. Vit admits that the country is bringing in banks for insurance reasons and that it may seem like a step back, but as a matter of fact, it allows for further development due to the tight restrictions in place for insurance companies to insure projects and individuals. He also laughs off the notion of violent military aggression against the country when it comes to defense as it would be equivalent to Hitler targeting Liechtenstein during World War 2, it would be pointless. The UN does not recognize Liberland, but that's hardly a bad thing. While Vit does want to open the door for communication with the UN, he is not actively seeking acknowledgement which is certainly a good sign. Liberland can be visited via Air Liberland in Serbia, close to the border of Serbia and Liberland. Finally, Vit talks about what he sees as the...

                          LUCK DOES EXIST & YOU CAN MAKE IT! It's Not What Most People Think It is...

                          My whole life I have heard 'Oh, that was unlucky' or 'That boy is so lucky' - but what IS luck? Is it a curse or a gift from 'the gods'?

                          \r\n

                          Essentially, we often feel that luck is just a name given to an imagined 'thing' or 'force' that we might 'have' when we experience great things in our lives - yet some of us really do appear to have more of it somehow - so... why is that? Are the 'lucky' ones just being more imaginative than the unlucky ones?

                          \r\n

                          Synchronicity is Magic

                          \r\n

                          I once had a friend that was well known online for her apparently divinely guided and magical ability to create events and 'luck'. If you were to ask her about it she would say that she creates her own reality and that spirit/god helps her. I once saw her say "oh, I wish I had a ticket to the Burning Man festival" and then she looked at her emails and one arrived with an offer of a free ticket to that exact festival!

                          \r\n

                          What she was demonstrating was understanding and use of what is called 'synchronicity' - which is effectively the ability to attract and cause, non-physically, events and situations to manifest in our lives which reflect our needs and desires without consciously, fully planning them out in full detail or even taking any physical action to cause them. I have seen this occur in my own life and for others a huge amount of times and I fully accept that this is 'normal' for everyone - it's just that most of us don't realise we can do/use it and so we don't and never notice our latent ability.

                          \r\n

                          So how does 'luck' factor in?

                          \r\n

                          I like to look at the roots/origins of language to better understand the concepts that the words represent. In Latin, 'light' was 'lux' and there is a major clue and to what luck really is. 'Light' in a psychological or spiritual sense essentially means 'understanding' - so we are said to be 'enlightened' when we understand. The greater our understanding, the 'brighter' we are said to be. So, it follows that what we have called 'luck' is actually an effect of increased understanding and specifically a combination of understanding about our relationship to the cosmos/earth/life and also our level of self acceptance (which we can also call 'understanding' of self).

                          \r\n

                          It is through a combination of understanding who we are and something of how life mechanically works - with regards attraction - that we can come to be at peace. When we are at peace, we are a better resonator for our desires and we can think more clearly. Our balance is our key to drawing to us what we need in life - we are not going to be distracted by conflicts when we are balanced and we are going to be able to direct our energies more effectively to where we need them to go. Our universe is not 'dumb' or 'dead' - it is literally a living field of beingness and beings which is capable of intelligently guiding phenomena according to the heart's will of those beings who are part of it and co-creating through it as a vehicle for their thoughts and intentions.

                          \r\n

                          'luck' CAN be created after all!

                          \r\n

                          All we need to do is cultivate a deeper awareness of who we are and to ALLOW magical attraction and manifestation to be real for us! We are powerful enough to effectively hide our ability to draw to use what we need simply by holding beliefs/thoughts which say that it is impossible.. We are then effectively drawing to us the reality that proves to us that we can't draw realities to us! How creative of us!

                          \r\n

                          Just by reading this text and beginning to open to what is being shared here, you may start to notice greater synchronicity in your life. You may notice that your desires start to become easier to realise and that your inner world starts to be reflected more in your outer, physical world.

                          \r\n

                          Life is not meant to be hard! We just create a struggle through our perceptions of what is and what is not possible.

                          \r\n

                          We are infinite beings - we just need to think and act like who we really are!

                          \r\n

                          Got Comments?

                          \r\n

                          What do you think/feel about this? Do you have any exciting stories of synchronicity to share here? Let us know in the comments below. Thanks.
