It is applied to the terms "fact" and "fact checkers"

The view that many people have of "fact checkers" is incredibly simplistic and naive. Have you ever even looked into who is funding these "fact checkers"? If you are referring to the well-known American fact checkers they have been discredited to anyone who genuinely cares about the truth and objectivity (and therefore who is unwilling to "temporarily" sacrifice those "for the greater good"). The events of the last couple of years in the West if anything should have taught you that "fact checkers" and "content moderation" based on what is supposedly true and what is not (rather than what is illegal) cannot be trusted and relied upon if you value a truly free society.

See my earlier post. The events of the "last couple years" were largely driven by an uncensored social media world.

Have you ever stopped to consider their motivation?

Fact checkers == propagandists. GULAG and the rest are like echo chambers of lies and half truths.

I did too, then when I realized that MS was buying user data and search data and it’s pretty easily linked to your MS account it was back to Google for most searches and incognito mode through a VPN on FF with all the blockers running and sandbox mode, only a VM would make it more secure, which may be the next up option for anonymous browsing and checking prices etc…
I dont trust google at all.

I also dont have a MS account either.

Both can go fuck off

Their nationality doesn't matters, American, British, Australian, Belgian... it's irrelevant, they're simply the tiny gears in a much larger machine that help push the agenda, megacorporations don't care about nationality because they want to end nations, countries, borders and laws so they can conduct their business everywhere with nobody to tell them what to do but themselves.

The rabbit hole goes MUCH deeper than fact-checkers being propagandists, paid shills or whatever, it's about creating and manipulating public opinion by any means necessary, yes, even war, because war is a business, and who's behind war? corporations, they use war to gamble stocks and earn money, and the so called fact-checkers are required to take sides and benefit the hand that feeds them, it's all a game for them, sending young lads as cannon fodder into the battlefield, destroying cities, killing innocent civilians, it's all justified to tilt public opinion towards one side. There is no war to end all wars, because war cannot end, if it did, corpos would lose, even when all nations are gone, when borders are erased from the maps wars will remain. Anyway, it's too complicated to explain in here and I'm afraid the thread will completely derail if I keep going. But you know the basics now.

At this point I'm thinking it's more that they like society standing. They aren't going to realisitically dissolve governments anytime soon, but keeping society stable helps business. This isn't a big conspiracy if you actually stop and think about it.

Anyhow, this thread has veered far from it's intended purpose, and I don't see a viable recovery at this point. Reporting it for closure.
