We're in some kind of war, I'm not sure what to call it. But I wonder if you've noticed what I've noticed.

I've neem blogging for more than twenty years. I have always searched the internet for images.  Things like this sneak up on you but now I can see all this clearly.

First, if I use a picture of a painting from another century and it features a nude woman, it's tagged by that big search engine.

Second, that same big engine does not like images with words in them anywhere) because memes are a very effective way to inspire and inform people.

Third, in the old days if I were to search for a pick of a kid doing some exercise, I would find pages and pages of pics, taken by moms or whoever. Today, what you pull up it tightly controlled.  Basically, normal, everyday people are being eradicated from the internet. You can get a picture of someone who is pretending to be normal and every day. That's not the same, is it?

These three of these things dovetail together to create a three-pronged attack... or defense? Bottom line, they only want you see images that are crafted to screw you up in ways you probably have not begun to fathom.

I realized recently, I may be (significantly?) ahead of the curve here.  I'm throwing this out here anyway. It's Pluto in Aquarius stuff - beware.

Have definitely noticed this. One of the reasons I have used DuckDuckGo for years now. It's not perfect, but much better. It's all part of the censorship and tightly controlled narrative. It's been much more subtle in the past, but has ramped up significantly more recently. Information warfare.

@giovanni I used duckduckgo for about two years but now use Ecosia. Eventually none of them will work.  But if you really want to understand this, you have to identify the primary agenda, because there is more than one.

If you can do this, while you're not going know it all,  at least you'll will no longer be in a state of shock and awe and painful wonderment and confusion.

Google is garbage. Tonight I tried a search on my grandparents’ names. Nothing turned up. I know full well they’re both listed in Find A Grave. Then I tried Bing. Voilà! There they were.

This post is about 9 months old.  A lot of the internet is now unreachable in that you can't find it. I don't see a viable workaround. Per design, I'm sure.

 

"The theory that the internet we once knew has lost a huge component of real content generated by humans and has now been hijacked by AI to manipulate us rings true..."
