Disrupt Censorship! How To Keep Seeing News That Matters To You

Published

on

Is it algorithms? Or maybe censorship? Or do people just not care anymore? These are the questions going through many people’s minds as it becomes increasingly more difficult to stay informed in our world.

Facebook became the top source for driving news and information to people in 2015. According to Parse.ly’s chief technical officer, Andrew Montalenti, latest estimates show that social media sources (of which Facebook is by far the largest) accounted for about 43% of the traffic to the Parse.ly network of media sites, while Google accounted for just 38%.

Now you might also have been hearing how Facebook’s algorithm has changed and many publishers are now seeing a decline in traffic from Facebook. There are likely a number of reasons for this and we will get to them shortly.

The cries of ‘Fake News’ began hitting the internet following Hillary Clinton’s loss of the U.S. election. A scared, shocked, and tattered elite and mainstream media found out the true power of independent media and its influence. WikiLeaks was able to publish leak after leak during the election that independent media made popular, while mainstream media tried to bury and debunk it.

The popularity of this content and resulting change in public opinion show we are in a very unique time, one where mainstream media can’t simply bully their way into everyone’s minds like they once could.

It’s important to note that we also exist in an age so incredibly obsessed with physical proof that we rarely give credit to gut feelings and intuition, which happen to have been the inspiration behind most amazing discoveries and understandings we love and admire today.

Having been in media for almost eight years now running Collective Evolution, one of the largest independent media outlets in the world, I can tell you from from my own gut instinct that there is a war on information right now and it’s being fought harder now than ever before.

Enter Fake News

A shocked democratic camp looked for someone to blame after its election loss. After going through a series of blame candidates, eventually things turned to ‘fake news’ and websites that promote ‘Russian propaganda.’ A list of websites began circulating that were allegedly responsible for reporting fake news. While I know for a fact that some of the websites on that list did and do report fake news, many of them don’t. Instead, they simply bring forth a perspective you won’t hear on mainstream news, one that threatens specific, politically charged rhetoric and agendas.

Literally on the DAY this list was released, we began seeing a decline in our organic reach on Facebook, and a big one at that. Whether by coincidence or not, the change was instantaneous. To us it was easy to see what was happening, but we wanted to be sure. So we began asking Facebook page admins who run pages that do not report on news like us if their reach had dropped. It hadn’t.

The graph below beautifully illustrates what happened. The very day the fake news craze began taking over the media, our organic reach suddenly dropped. Even before anyone could figure out who the culprits were, whether they were actually producing fake news or not, we had been targeted.

Graph illustrates reach drop starting just after US election in 2016.

Was it a calculated effort? An excuse to drop reach on websites that challenge mainstream propaganda and conjecture? I’m sure we will find out in years to come, but so far it has been interesting to see.

About two weeks after this happened I was doing a live interview in Toronto. After the interview I had the chance to meet with and speak with audience members who told me they have been following CE for many years and engage with it every day. After all of this I finally asked them, “Do you still see our content in your newsfeed?” With puzzled looks they recalled, “No, now that you mention it  — I don’t see it anymore.” I grinned and told them to make sure they visit our page or website manually since it’s unlikely they will see our content in their feed any longer.

Following that, I decided to run a quick survey on my own personal Facebook profile. I asked if people ever see any CE content in their newsfeed anymore. The results were very interesting.

Of the 190 people that responded, 18% said they still see it in some form, whether once a day or a couple times per week. Of those, about 30% see it because they have set their News Feed to show CE first. These 190 people are people I engage with quite regularly. I see them engage with CE’s content often and know they support our work. So why, then, and all of a sudden, do they not see something they engage with regularly? Facebook always touts that “if you create good, engaging content, your audience will continue to see it,” but that simply isn’t happening.

Even when I scroll through my own News Feed, I only see posts from pages like Quartz, BuzzFeed, CBC News, and so forth. These are all pages I don’t even have ‘liked.’ And they aren’t sponsored posts, either. The vast majority of the remainder of posts I see are updates from friends that are typically about their day. What happened to all the interesting links, videos, and other content I used to see?

In August of 2016 Facebook announced a new algorithm update that would predict which posts a user might find “informative” and prioritize said posts in the user’s News Feed. The challenge here is, what if it is wrong? How does a user define what he or she likes? What if it’s a cover for forms of censorship?

So What’s the Story?

Facebook must do things that people want, that people ask for. After all, they are creating a platform and running a business to please many people. Facebook has told us through their many reports that people want to see updates from friends, not from pages, and so they have been slowly changing the News Feed. But the funny thing is, regardless of what seems to change, the big brands like BuzzFeed, VICE, and HuffPost always seem to have a spot in the feed. Why?

And why do we keep receiving emails and messages from our audience saying they want to see our content in their feed but don’t anymore? Is it true that users don’t want to see pages? Maybe Facebook took it too far? Is there censorship going on?

Facebook must also please shareholders. Having businesses pay for reach or other forms of advertisement is an obvious monetization model for Facebook, and this is totally acceptable. They also must build an algorithm that organizes the millions of posts put forth every day into relevant information for its users. This is fair. But you must wonder, if users are engaging heavily with something, why suddenly stop showing it to them? How do you suddenly decide they shouldn’t see it?

How to See What You Care About

It’s clear that Facebook is on its way out when it comes to being a platform for staying informed and getting news you care about. It is becoming (or rather, returning to) something that connects you to your friends and puts advertising in front of you to purchase products — again, totally fine. But personally, I don’t see much value in my News Feed. I imagine many users are feeling the same and have to change the way they use Facebook if they want to keep up with what’s important to them. This also creates space for another platform to come along that will provide people with what they truly want.

Information consumption habits are going to have to change if you want to stay informed. If that’s important to you, here’s what you can do:

1. Sign up to daily newsletters from the websites you love. You can do so with CE’s here.

2. Set the pages you like to ‘See First’ in your News Feed. This can be done quite easily and will help to keep you informed. Simply hover over the “Following” button and click “See First.”

3. Download mobile apps that belong to the sites you love to stay in touch with them.

4. Manually go to a website or Facebook page each day to stay up to date.

5. Join any existing communities your favourite websites might have. You can join CE’s here.

Egypt To Open A Giant Black Mystery Sarcophagus Despite Warnings

Published

on

Not long ago, Egyptian Archaeologists discovered a huge 2,000-year-old sealed coffin, and as you’d imagine, they want to open it to see who or what is inside.

The sarcophagus was discovered in a tomb deep under the Egyptian city of Alexandria earlier this month (July 2018). It’s believed to be the largest sarcophagus ever discovered in Alexandria. It’s 9ft long, 5ft wide and 6ft deep, according to Mostafa Waziri, the general secretary of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities.

This has sparked quite the storm on the internet, as people point to the well known “curse of the pharaohs”, a term used to refer to a supposed curse believed to be thrown upon anyone who disturbs an ancient Egyptian mummy.

CTV News, who also picked up the story, explains,

In the 10 years that followed the opening of Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1922, 11 people who had at least visited the site died under sometimes myserious curcumstances, including lead researcher Howard Carter and several members of his team. Cureses involving ancient Egyptian tombs and artificats have also been the source of several Hollywood movies. Despite being on the verge of a supposed curse, other social media users are too intruiged to worry about the apparent risks.

A lot of mainstream media outlets present the idea of some sort of ‘curse’ as predominately mythological. The human mind definitely does, today that is, have trouble even comprehending how something like that could actually be real. Perhaps it invokes so much fear in one that we simply choose to ignore it, laugh it off and convince ourselves that such things may not exist.

It’s also interesting to note that the sarcophagus is covered in a thick layer of mortar, suggesting it has not been opened since the Ptolemaic period, which dates back between 305BC and 30BC. So, whatever is inside, it will still be intact…

Should It Be Opened?

Personally, I can understand the caution. If these coffins are to be left undisturbed by humanity, as instructed by the ancients, I believe these rules should be followed, and that’s probably because I am convinced in the validity of the concepts discussed in the Encyclopedia of Esoteric Studies, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, written by Manly P. Hall. In it, he describes how ancient rituals, practices, and magic were used by the ancients of different time periods, and this type of magic actually dominated in Egypt, which came to them from Atlantis.

“The masses, deprived of their birthright of understanding and grovelling in ignorance, eventually became the abject slaves of the spiritual impostors. Superstition universally prevailed and the black magicians completely dominated national affairs, with the result that humanity still suffers from the sophistries of the priestcrafts of Atlantis and Egypt.” 

It seems to be that such a curse could only derive from black magic, because it is associated with punishment and death, in this example, an Egyptian curse.  Why should we take the description of Egyptian culture from those who wrote about it so seriously, for example, societal structure, food practices and more, but when it comes to their description of magic, for example, we instantly place it into the theoretical and mythical realm, without even considering the possibility that it could be real? Have we become that closed minded?

You can read a little bit more about the above-mentioned topics in the article linked below.

A Detailed Description of the Lost Land of Atlantis & The Real Reason For Their Downfall

How Some of the World’s Elite Uses Black Magic Rituals To Conjure Up Entities For More Power & Control

The sarcophagus wasn’t the only thing discovered in the tomb, there was also an alabaster head of a man who some believe could represent the person who is buried within the coffin.

RT news points out,

Most ancient tombs discovered in Egypt were looted in one era or another, often leaving archaeologists with a limited understanding of the person inside. This untouched artifact gives the eager team a rare opportunity to uncover the mummy for themselves….Some people suggested the sarcophagus coupled with the recent discovery of a Neolithic henge in Ireland is either a sign of an impending apocalypse… or a very extravagant marketing scheme for a new Indiana Jones movie.

It’s important to close on the note that, not all which has been discovered is presented to us. We live in a world of secrecy, millions of pages of documents are classified every single year, for anybody to study the true history of, let’s say America, it would truly be impossible because it’s incredibly difficult to get something that actually reflects the truth.

I like to use the United States as an example, specifically, the National Security Agency (NSA) which was founded in 1952, its existence was hidden until the mid 60’s. Even more secretive is the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), which was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for 30 years.

What about archaeological discoveries, have they been kept from us? What about the Naszca mummies that were discovered in Peru? And all of the other discoveries within the realms of archaeology, like giants, completely left out of the historical record?

Historial and archaeological discoveries have the power to completely change what we know about human history and the origins of humanity. It wouldn’t be surprising that any artifact or physical traces of past life that don’t fit within the frame of accepted knowledge, or within the theory of evolution, to be completely unknown to humanity. This is one of many ways the global elite contain their control over humanity, and over the story of humanities origins.

Definitely, something to think about…

As far as the coffin goes, it looks they’re going to open it for sure…

The “Unmasking Antifa Act Of 2018”: The Nonsense Never Ends

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A bill has recently been submitted to Congress that specifically targets groups of people wearing masks who are preventing others from exercising their constitutional rights.

  • Reflect On:

    Can we see how much of what the government is doing with regards to violent protests and counter-protests is complicit with the way these protests are being used to prevent us from dealing effectively with the real issues?

Last year, in an attempt to condemn the ‘violence and domestic terrorism’ that took place during events between August 11 and August 12, 2017, in Charlottesville, Virginia, the Senate tabled the ‘Charlottesville Resolution’ whose main purpose was ‘rejecting White nationalists, White supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other hate groups, and urging the President and the President’s Cabinet to use all available resources to address the threats posed by those groups.’

Wow. Those Senators are really earning their salaries, aren’t they? Bravo–they’ve given the government more power to suppress the narrative of a certain segment of the population.

Unmasking Antifa

Now this year, in an attempt to stem the rising violence perpetrated by the group called Antifa, Congress introduced Bill H. R. 6054:

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the ‘‘Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018’’.

SEC. 2. INTERFERENCE WITH PROTECTED RIGHTS WHILE IN DISGUISE.

(a) IN GENERAL.—Chapter 13 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by inserting after section 249 the following:

‘‘§ 250. Interference with protected rights while in  disguise

‘‘(a) IN GENERAL.—Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, while in disguise, including while wearing a mask, injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both.

Wow. They’re really getting to the heart of the matter here, aren’t they?–the masks. Granted, threatening the ‘free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to <any person> by the Constitution’ was already a punishable crime, even without a mask, but let’s not let that get in the way. The government should be congratulated for their accomplishment here, which again is doing nothing except giving themselves more power to suppress the narrative of a certain segment of the population.

Who Supports These Groups?

I personally don’t know of anyone who supports White Nationalists, White Supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, or other hate groups. I also don’t know anyone who supports Antifa.

To be perfectly honest, I’m not even sure if many of the people that go out to protest and counter-protest in public are necessarily ardent supporters of their respective group’s fundamental ideologies. I believe many are paid mercenaries. Others may be looking for an opportunity to vent their own suppressed anger.

Can We Ignore Them?

Ideally, we should be completely ignoring violent groups with such extremist ideologies. But there is a reason we have a hard time doing so. It is because it is these groups that get to star in the mainstream media circus and in the political discourse, at the exclusion of the vast majority of citizens who are moderate, reasonable, and have legitimate grievances. Isn’t it farcical that we are still talking about the Ku Klux Klan? That they still exist?

There is a reason that groups like the KKK seem to be getting recycled from the dustbin of history, at the same time newer extremist movements like Antifa are being well-funded and supported: their violent confrontations continue to be used by the financial elite as a smoke screen to grab our attention and fill the headlines, all while discouraging the moderate and reasonable majority from actually speaking up in public about the real issues that face us today, about the real and obvious tyranny the financial elite continue to perpetuate.

Embers Of Fear Dying Out

For the financial elite, the agenda itself is irrelevant; as long as violence, chaos, and polarization are created, they are able to keep their game going and hold on to power. But it’s getting harder and harder for them to stoke the fires of fear and violence, as they need to infuse more energy and resources than ever to bring these events together.

As we awaken and evolve, more and more of the population is turning away from angry and violent opposition as a way of dealing with issues. It’s important that we remain conscious and avoid the temptation to participate in the false left/right dichotomy that is constantly on display in the political arena and in the mainstream media. As we see these violent confrontations fundamentally as staged events, and stop giving our emotional energy to one side or other of the polarity, these techniques will no longer have their intended effect, and we can look forward to the day that they will have eventually petered out.

Newly Discovered Crop Circle Has A Message For Humanity (July 2018)

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A new crop circle was recently discovered in the UK on July 8th, 2018. It was the exact depiction of the chemical weapons warning symbol.

  • Reflect On:

    Does this serve as a message for us to put down the chemical and nuclear weapons for good? Do we need to be using these weapons? This may also cause us to consider the poisoning of our planet in other ways.

A new crop circle was recently discovered on July 8th in Coneybury Hill, Nr Stonehenge, Wiltshire. This circle is the exact same as the chemical weapons warning symbol.

Interestingly this crop circle was found shortly after the death of Dawn Sturgess who had come into contact with a deadly nerve agent.

While we can’t know for sure, this crop circle certainly appears to be a message to humanity about the dangers of chemical weapons and the catastrophic damage they can cause, regardless of who you believe made it. Perhaps this circle symbolizes the fact that these weapons have no place in our world, and it’s time we got rid of them, for good.

Check out some amazing drone footage of this newly discovered crop circle below.

ET Intervention?

It is not all that surprising to see this message show up in a crop circle, as in the past we have seen deliberate ET intervention when nuclear weapons would have otherwise been used. We have covered this topic before, and the following is an excerpt from an older article,

One of many previously classified reports -out of the thousands in existence -that is now available in the public domain is the intrusion at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota, on August 24, 1966. Air Force personnel were concerned about a light in the sky. A team went to check it out and confirmed the object, then saw a second white object while doing so. The object was tracked on radar and moved vertical several times; each time it descended, an air force officer in charge of a missile crew found his radio transmission interrupted by static. The object eventually descended to ground level, and the Air Force sent a team to check it out. They saw the object either on the ground or hovering very low. According to the official report:

“When the team was about ten miles from the landing site, static disrupted radio contact with them. Five to eight minutes later, the glow diminished, and the UFO took off. Another UFO was visually sighted and confirmed by radar. The one that was first sighted passed beneath the second. Radar also confirmed this. The first made for altitude toward the north, and the second seemed to disappear with the glow of red.”

Here are a couple of more articles that go into greater detail regarding the connections between UFO’s and nuclear missiles:

“The United States Tried To Detonate A Nuclear Weapon On The Moon & Somebody Responded When We Did”

“Strong Evidence Shows Extraterrestrials Have Been Shutting Down Nuclear Missiles Worldwide For Decades, But Why”

Why Are They Stopping Nukes?

It seems that these extraterrestrials know just how damaging nuclear weapons can be to our planet, and possibly to our entire solar system. There is information that says that UFO’s have been deactivating nuclear weapons since we created them and started to show up a lot more often when we were testing the atomic bomb. Thankfully, someone or something has our back and is helping to stop us, humanity from making a huge mistake.
