Did Facebook Just Sentence a Man to Death? -- Social Media as Political Informant and Government Agent



by Conscious Optimist

According to Mussolini, "fascism" can be defined as a complete merger of corporate and state power. By now, readers of "alt" media are certainly aware of Facebook's prominent role in the war against free speech, largely spearheaded, interestingly enough, by modern day universities in the West, and their seemingly pro-Islam faculty and students. Facebook's mounting censorship policies and campaigns fit perfectly within the larger framework of radical leftist campaigns to eradicate viewpoints that don't tow the fascist liberal line.


(As an aside: need I point out that you can't be 'pro' anything if, at first, you cannot describe it? Many alleged pro Islam types have no idea what Islam even is. So be careful not to automatically assume that leftist ideologues that say they are "defending Islam" have the slightest clue what they're doing. But I digress...)

Today, Facebook is engaging in the crackdown against dissent of opinion in multiple countries. The video below shares the story of Facebook being used to enforce blasphemy laws in Pakistan—laws that can carry the penalty of death.

As Luke Rudkowski from We Are Change puts bluntly, "if they're doing this in Pakistan, just imagine what they're doing in your country."

Personally, I find it alternately infuriating and hilarious how "progressives" today would simultaneously support the censorship of right-wing viewpoints while also defending a "religion" that calls for the killing of atheists. I suppose we can thank Facebook, in some small part, for the mass idiocy that comprises much of today's youth culture?

Why is it that some many young people today—who should be the most free thinking of us all—can be so easily duped into the mindlessness of popular movements, ones usually founded on a dogmatic and often incorrect ideology?

About The Author

Conscious Optimist


I am nothing more than an example of someone who decided to make an honest effort to become accountable to the Truth, and to see what I could do to help improve my life and the conditions of the world beyond myself. One fateful day, roughly a decade ago, I realized that I knew absolutely nothing about the world or myself and decided that this was unacceptable. I began amassing a pile of books on every subject I considered important to the world and to myself. I have been reading, experimenting, and contemplating ever since, having categorically rejected the premise that it is “good enough” for other people to be “smart on my behalf.” Today I possess somewhat extensive knowledge on subjects as diverse as Law, Music, Hypnosis, Ecology, the Occult, Theology, and Politics, and do the best I can to synthesize this knowledge into articles and presentations for the benefit of all knowledge-seekers, self-helpers, and world-healers who may, from time to time, stumble upon my work.

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation? 
Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
