Are you going to be guilty of Treason? You cannot provide the enemy with aid and comfort and expect to win the war.
In a post on November 7th I mentioned that we need to crush Big Tech. Of all the things we have to do this is something that can be done soon and with just a little effort. There are some great alternatives to FB & Twitter (Bastards that they are). MeWe.com seems to be the most popular replacement for FB and some are using Parler or Gab to replace Twitter. You cannot find Gab on the Play Store or on the Apple App Store. You have to go to this website to get the app. Yep, they’ve been banned for being supporters of free speech! Parler is soon going to be in the same boat according to this article.
I just opened a MeWe.com account to replace Facebook. Many of my friends & other veterans have moved there. It is free and fairly intuitive. However, it gives much more privacy and that might take a little getting used to. There are NO Ads, No spyware, and No censorship. You will find liberals and conservative groups there as well as most of your favorites. I mention liberals and conservatives because a friend was concerned it would become a conservative echo chamber. It won’t. It is a free speech zone.
One big difference is Pages and Posts when set to Public are only visible to MeWe members. If you are in marketing and looking for backlinks to websites to build SEO it won’t work for that. Privacy is the default setting. If you want things to be visible to all MeWe members and not just your contacts you have to set it that way. It is easy to switch back and forth on an individual Post basis.
MeWe has chat, voice, and video calling just like FB. It is limited to 8 gigs of storage for images and videos for free. I purchased the $4.99 per month plan right away simply because I believe in what they are doing. I don’t think I’ll need the space for years to come so I view it as a contribution.
Hopefully, President Trump will Jump Ship after this election. Again, I say: You cannot provide the enemy with aid and comfort and expect to win the war. Frankly, that is Treason!
Interesting perspective Kelly! I never looked at it that way, but your point is well taken.
Using the services of a clear opponent of free speech. An opponent who silences one side, while providing “cover” for the other side – as they earn money from our activities whie they laugh at us while they hurt free speech and freedom of speech/press, part of the Constitution we swore an oath to defend!
You mean Trump is committing Treason every time he uses Twitter?
The goal here is to raise awareness. I see that worked in your case 🙂 It got you to think even though you are a never Trumper. Of course, to commit treason according to the law the government would have to designate FB & Twitter as enemies. However, morally we know they are an enemy. A classic Liberal would be on our side, meaning Trump supporters who believe in free speech. If FB & Twitter were censoring Liberals, I would be on your side. Are you a classic Liberal or just someone who hates so much they have lost all… Read more »
Who said I was a never Trumper? I told you when I first came to this site that I generally play Devil’s Advocate. I criticize Trump on Conservative sites and criticize Biden on Liberal sites. You said it, the object is to raise awareness, to get people to think. If people only hear one side, then a lot of them will stop thinking about the other sides to an issue. A good running Democracy is dependant on the ability of its citizens to make informed decisions. That’s why I visit and read news sites like Fox News and MSNBC. To… Read more »
Sorry for not remembering all things about you Jon. I deal with hundreds of people. Granted, there are less than 1,000 comments on this site since I restarted it in May of 2018. I was also active on the various VFT Facebook pages till recently. There, we were collectively dealing with just under 400,000 folks. So, again, forgive me if I don’t recall your stance if you stated it that way before. You should know by now I do listen to both sides as long as they are reasonable. I prefer to talk to people on the phone. Emails, text… Read more »
