MOZILLA SELLS OUT! Anonymous 08/16/2017 (Wed) 00:02:50 [Preview] No. 10727
Mozilla To Build New Browsers That Conform To Internet Censorship

https://web.archive.org/web/20170815234815/http://www.naturalnews.com/2017-08-15-censorship-alert-mozilla-planning-kill-shot-for-entire-independent-media-by-blocking-all-non-approved-news-in-the-firefox-browser.html#

In November of 1737, decades before America officially declared its independence from the king of England, a young Benjamin Franklin published an essay in The Pennsylvania Gazette entitled, “On Freedom of Speech and the Press.” In it, Franklin wrote, “Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the Constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins.” Franklin went on to write, “An evil magistrate entrusted with power to punish for words, would be armed with a weapon the most destructive and terrible.”

Although this was written in an article published more than two and a half centuries ago, Franklin’s words are quite possibly more relevant today than they ever have been. Indeed, there is an ongoing effort by the progressive left and extremists such as George Soros to silence speech that doesn’t align with the liberal agenda. This effort to effectively gut the First Amendment is taking place virtually everywhere you look, from the mainstream media, to Hollywood, to college campuses, and perhaps most frequently, across the Internet.

Recently, the popular Internet web browser Mozilla Firefox announced that it plans on joining the fight against what it considers to be “fake news,” a term that to leftists means nothing more than news that is written by conservatives. Mozilla said that it was “investing in people, programs and projects” in an effort to “disrupt misinformation online.”

The first question that every constitutionalist and liberty-loving American should be asking is as follows: How does Mozilla define “fake news?” Are they only talking about suppressing radical websites such as sites run by white supremacists, or are they talking about any news that comes from conservatives? At the very least, it should worry you that companies like Mozilla are often reluctant to thoroughly define “fake news” – it is highly unlikely that this is unintentional.

Furthermore, what exactly gives Mozilla the right or the authority to determine what is misinformation and what is not? The United States Constitution is the law of the land, and the freedom of speech is an inalienable right from God. The fact that Mozilla thinks it has sweeping authority to select which speech is censored and which speech is not runs contrary to everything that America was founded upon.

With the assault on independent media getting increasingly aggressive, many Internet bloggers and website owners are desperately looking for ways they can continue voicing their opinions without being harassed, suppressed or silenced. If you are one of these people, you may want to consider using “Brave,” a relatively new web browser founded by former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich.

On its website, Brave states that its goal is “to transform the online ad ecosystem with micropayments and a new revenue-sharing solution to give users and publishers a better deal, where fast, safe browsing is the path to a brighter future for the open web.”

If we are truly committed to one day restoring America to its constitutional roots, then we need to embrace initiatives like Brave and reject the political censorship that seems to now be running rampant across the country. Failure to do so will result in exactly what Benjamin Franklin warned about back in 1737 – the erosion of the Constitution and the establishment of tyranny.

>ongoing effort by the progressive left and extremists such as George Soros to silence speech that doesn’t align with the liberal agenda
I have always seen this as false flagging, the leftists and extremists are nothing more than puppets that exist to fulfill a purpose, there is one group in particular that wants censorship and the first amendment to be abolished. You can call them the jews, the 1%, the corporate CEOs, etc. but they are all exactly the same. Advocating for the rights of others and non-discrimination (Quite ironic considering that by throwing these events and initiating this movement, the sole audience they were targeting and attempting to silence became stronger) is not wrong, but abolishing the first amendment and censorship is a shitty and downright wrong way to go about it.

>How does Mozilla define “fake news?
We will have to wait and see, unless mozilla publishes a set of guidelines as to what they consider "fake" news. Regardless whether the news in question is fake or not, censorship is wrong in both scenarios, and allowing the truly fake news to stay up allows the enlightened to see the difference between real and fake news and also allows them to see where the fake news originated from.

>If you are one of these people, you may want to consider using “Brave,” a relatively new web browser founded by former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich.
I'll trust Brave when I dig deeper into it and see audits of it as well as widespread support from the FOSS community (It might already have audits or support, I don't pay that much attention).

If mozilla truly wants to take a stance against actual fake news and not what they consider hostile towards their agenda (if they have an agenda), then they should start educating their software users and followers and should prove that certain news outlets distribute fake news. Pushing search results many pages back or deleting them all together is censorship, and it would be much more effective if they added a little label sporting "censorship" under specific results that have been proven to be or distribute fake news with a click-able URL that leads to an educating page.

I use Firefox right now because I rarely conduct important work/research on my computer and I am not as deep as some of these other anons, but would pale moon be worth the switch? Only extension I use is NoScript and that is very much it. Hardware wise, my laptop has an IntelTM i3 processor with loads of other shit and my thinkpad X200 cannot be charged due to broken power adapter and has a shitty battery. I know loads more than the majority of people when it comes to security and electronics/software, but I have yet to truly construct my secure laptop.

Make sure the auto-updates are turned off in the settings to your old Mozilla browsers.

I have a collection of Firefox setup files (not those "stub" files that load it from the cloud), with many many different versions throughout the years (mostly collected from Mozilla's old website and Sourceforge). I plan on uploading and sharing these old files, but it's key for users to remember to turn OFF the auto-update feature. If you check out the P2P Soulseek program, I am already sharing those files on there when logged in.

Sometime I'll have to upload them to mega.nz or mediafire, but I have to get used to this new OS I have first...

You think just like I do. I notice there are these two extremes being pushed against the public today, one a bunch of commie Stalin-worshippers and the other a bunch of neo-nazi Hitler bootlickers. I hate both those small groups of feeble minded government-worshiping clowns.

Don't fall for the bait, they want to push you into one kind of tyranny or the other kind of tyranny .... Fuck tyranny.

>>10736
I'll check that out. Are there by any chance some security-friendly add-ons working for that browser? (such as noscript or a browser agent spoofer?) I like extra security with my browser.

Interesting revelation that I discovered the other day, it appears that encyclopedia dramatica is slowly being edited to include nazi beliefs in every fucking page. I have no idea if it is a single individual doing this to fulfill their desires, or a deep shadow group trying to push nazism and slowly subvering internet (and possibly real life) communities.

I would not be surprised one bit. Notice another odd thing going on too, historical American monuments all over the place (even ones *NOT associated with the old Confederacy) are being taken down by bureaucrats, even ones associated with our own Founding Fathers... its like a stealth coup is taking place, and they want to change (or cover-up) our constitutional / civic history from future generations being born today.

Very strange. Very disturbing. And now we see Mozilla wanting to block what websites we can visit. I do believe a takeover is going on and it is likely a very tyrannical one.

Keep those guns loaded, I'm not kidding around, shit is getting scary in the US.

Consider that it is very much in the interest of the oligarchs for every critic of the status quo to be painted as a "luddite extremist" in order to maintain the public's support of their reign.

The problem is both extremes (left and right) are giving the government the perfect opportunity they need to crack down on freedom of the press and freedom of speech (which they are NOW DOING in several states).

Whether the commies and neo-nazis know it or not, they are being used as ignorant pawns at best - at worst they are colluding with this anti-free speech agenda.

Look at it this way: you have to groups (racist supremacists and 'politically correct' mentally disturbed nutjobs) fighting in the streets, punching people, driving people over with cars, tackling people and beating one another up over political disputes that should be easy to settle with proper civil debate and common sense. Instead of using their 1st Amendment, they choose violence. The media then claims they are "protesting" when actually both sides are all acting like violent uncivilized thugs chimping out.... So how do bureaucrats and the federal government respond? As they typically do: expand the police state, further regulate assembly, prohibit freedom of speech... etc.

Thus, these are ignorant pawns being exploited or perhaps worse: they are colluding with one another to push tyrannical agendas for the federal govt. Take a look at this archived evidence, it will blow you away and hopefully you will see through this whole facade: https://archive.fo/udg1f

Do you realize how deep this rabbit hole can go? Do you realize that the chain of events may have been perfectly planned and orchestrated for the past hundred years?

If the technology exists to prolong the life of a human, or preserve the thought processes, we could be dealing with the same "enemies" that our ancestors were dealing with long ago. I have no idea if such technology exists (and if it does, I highly doubt the creator is going to release it to the world...), and the US government already has secretive technology that they are hiding in their undocumented bases and laboratories. If this technology doesn't exist, then we are most likely dealing with nepotism and world domination plans being passed down to children within families (Example being the Rockefellers/Rothschilds).

Global politics and society is extremely complicated, it would take a massive team of highly intelligent individuals with powerful tools to gain a grasp on the world as a whole, seeing all of the trees as a forest. The problem with this medium is everyone is Anonymous, this has great benefits and hard downfalls, it allows for true freedom of speech and the ability to converse without inherent biases prevalent in real life discussions. However, accomplishing tasks and working together to compile information becomes harder and if people are taken out by the government, all we will notice is a drop in posts and one less connected IP.

/pol/ is filled with idiots and mislead people for the most part, it has intelligent people, but they rarely post and don't frequent the board similar to the fanatics. Quite funny seeing /tech/ having a better grasp on politics than /pol/.

You should actually go back to the fundamental.
I don't want to say that such an enemy, transcending ages, being very powerful or powerful enough to keep its throne, is actually known since the beggining of humanity...
I think that the biggest mistake made by us is to think that he is far away from us, in his cloud, distant, only inspiring evil symbolically from far away... The reality is that he's more real than ever.

But whatever. Let's rediscover the wheel.
All I know is that if you think it's the jews, or anyone human, then you should know that in any robbery, most of the time, one of the robber actually take all the money and betray its corobber. A religion, or an ideology is certainly not strong enough to maintain any order. You need something stronger.

Maybe you'd understand why the common point between all of (((them))) is some blood ritual, pedophile ritual etc..

>fundamentals
What are the "fundamentals"? I find it easier to reverse-engineer the world. Find one object of interest, say, the television, and find out what channels are being broadcast, then find the corporation that owns said channels, find the history and individuals behind the corporation, find their ties, etc.

>I don't want to say that such an enemy, transcending ages, being very powerful or powerful enough to keep its throne, is actually known since the beggining of humanity...
It is a possibility, albeit highly unlikely. There may have been a persistent group composed originally of highly intelligent individuals who wanted to oversee the world and learn of it, but it could have been corrupted and now they are using the resources to slowly take the planet in a thousand-year long plot.

>All I know is that if you think it's the jews, or anyone human, then you should know that in any robbery, most of the time, one of the robber actually take all the money and betray its corobber.
Not in all cases. Friendships that were weak in the first place result in this, but robbers with a deep history are highly unlikely to do this, and they can very easily split the profits.

>A religion, or an ideology is certainly not strong enough to maintain any order.
Why not?

>You need something stronger.
Such as what?

It seems that those are largely the same kind of people, they have just been conveniently divided by the governent-industrial-complex along some arbitrary, one-dimensional axis so that those who are discontent with how things fight each other instead of uniting and working against those with actual power. It's classic divide & conquer like feminsm and all that nonsense. Google has recently been displacing anything that disagrees with WashPost et al., doesnt matter if they are "left" or "right".

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2017/07/28/pers-j28.html

I have also long suspected that at least some of the liberal SJWs or white spremacists (or terrorists for that matter) are sock puppets. The Brendan Eich spectacle comes to mind, /pol/ was chimping out about "degenerates" while the SJWs where throwing a tantrum about "hompophobia". This is how the media framed it. I never saw Eich's definitve stance against the implementation of DRM in Firefox mentioned and how him becoming the CEO put that hope on ice, or how much money Hollywood was losing by missing out on customers due to having to use the instranparent NPAPI plugins for DRM. Or how his replacement, the former CMO and former CEO of a venture capital start-up, put DRM which is antithetical to Moziila's manifesto on the fast track. SJWs are incompetent, it wouldn't surprise me if Hollywood and friends didn't go out of their way to dig up dirt on Eich, anonmously tip of some "influencers" and then orchestrate the hole defamation campaign to subsequently install their corporate-friendly tyrant.

Ultimately though it matters little if the governent-industrial-complex is behind the boogeymen or merely being opportunistic, the resulting shift of power from the bottom to the top is the same.

That's false. I was talking about official statistics. I'm not talking about movies.
In the reality, everyone want to fuck everyone, at a low robbery level, and at the high level. "High intellectuals" only make the scam better engineered, with higher reward, but the spirit is the same. In fact, it's worste and worste with time. That's true that in the past, the stealer were organised in corporation, the ancestor of mafia, but the hierarchy was and is still organised upon fear, money and blackmail, and still everyone wanted to fuck everyone. The method got worste with time, and their power is greater today than ever.
A secret service is a mafia. A government is a mafia. But that's just some coggs, and a religion/ideology is CERTAINLY not enough to maintain anything here.

You should ask yourself why the real top don't care about money, and why they sacrify children, and do blood ritual.

You said you were searching about who control these big monopoly. Well, no one can know, since there is the shareolder secrecy. Maybe an unique team of people possess everything, even concurrent societies. The CEO is important, but it's not the top. Who knows.

Maybe they mean something like "Millians of illegal voters!" (or something). You know, the plain old _wrong_ stuff.
Not even a glimpse of serious reflection on your side about that topic.

All i see is your heavily biased (god given) brain fuck, scared about its future supply.

But in essence, you are of course right. Censorship is always a bad idea.
