2021.12.07 05:58 sadmama1961 The conspiracy theorists were right , or so it seems according to Crikey.com

Trending Last week Roy Morgan proved that conspiracy theorists are actually right about something. The pollster shared mobile phone location data from where the so-called “freedom” (aka anti-vaccine mandate, pandemic law, any COVID-19 measure really) protesters had come from before their rally.

 It turns out these types might be paranoid but they’re not wrong about everything. Someone is tracking them. Not with a microchip in the vaccines, but with the smartphone in their pocket or purse. It reminded me of other “conspiracy theories” I’ve seen in these online communities. Like someone pointing out that Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are all owned by the same company, or the common trope of painting one of the world’s most generous philanthropists Bill Gates as a nefarious puppet master. We know that enormous corporates like BlackRock and SoftBank have fingers in pies in almost every sector around the world, giving them an incredible amount of power. We know that industries like the fossil fuel industry spent decades misleading the public, obscuring the truth and buying influence with political elites in order to line the pockets of executives. (And don’t even get me started on Jeffrey Epstein and his little black book.) Maybe I’ve spent too long in insane Telegram channels and Facebook groups because I’m starting to feel that the future feared by these communities is already here. Let me explain. When I spoke to ANU conspiracy theory researcher Professor Colin Klein in early 2020 — about bushfire misinformation, what a throwback! — he explained to me that people who believe in far-fetched ideas are often looking for a story to explain a complex and uncertain world. The tragedy is that the stories conspiracy theorists tell are often close to but not quite the truth. Many of their frustrations are rooted in real injustices and inequities but they’re lashing out at the wrong target. By giving them the wrong “answer”, conspiracy theories risk disenfranchising their adherents further when their theory of the world turns out to be false. Plus most conspiracy theories are usually just poorly veiled ways of blaming Jews for the world’s problems which is no bueno. It is a bit comforting to know that reality is much more mundane than what conspiracy theorists might have you believe. There’s no all powerful lizard person or (((George Soros))) directly controlling it all. But it’s this banality that is also part of the problem. Surveillance capitalism is sucking every morsel of data from our existence because a bunch of business types in a boardroom told a bunch of engineer types to make it happen. They know where you go, who you know and even how you’re thinking because their exciting tech start up was running out of money and they needed something to tell investors so they could cash out their stock one day. And you technically agreed to this because you wanted to use free wi-fi or to play a mobile game on a long bus ride. A screenshot of a post made by a member of an online conspiracy community (Image: Supplied) How did the freedom protesters react when they saw that their every move was being tracked and made public? One or two members of their online communities seemed upset, but most ignored it. With the vindication of their fears staring them right in their face — in the form of a press release rather than a whistleblower’s testimonial or hidden code in a public message — they were more interested in the imagined than the real dystopia we live in.

I don't know any Japanese, but I see a Japanese escort usually once a week. She always calls me a sumo wrestler and stomps around like one while laughing? She doesn't speak English, what can I say to make her stop?
