Photo #1 from Midwest City, USA by Zozos made on 2018-10-16 00:47 for Sola

New to this platform. I am a Facebook refugee having deactivated my account after their recent purge and censorship.

I'm a 42 year old single father. Im a service tech by trade but an artist and thinker in my free time. Interests include art, philosophy, science, and the occult. I'm not sure what to expect here but am looking for a new online home with more of an eye toward freedom. We shall see.

What did Facebook censor that concerns you?

They went after a lot of alt-media I followed, Punkrock Libertarians, Police the Police, and The Free Tought Project to name a few.

They dropped the ban hammer on some 800 pages last week.
Nina One
Zozos, yes, I read about that. Are Punkrock Libertarians left libertarians or right libertarians?

Zozos, Free Thought Project turned up here for a while. Junk they are. Muted and booted. So-called freethinkers can go to Minds.

Nina One, they are apologists for Trump, Kavanaugh, incels and so on.

Opie ♻️, You are welcome to your opinion. I look at topics on Free Thought Project on a topical basis. Their pieces on government overreach and police brutality are solid. Their 911 conspiracy pieces, not so much. See what ticked me off about the FB bans is the presumption that I am incapable of discerning good information from bad from a source I specifically asked to get information from. I don't need daddy Zuckerbot policing my news, no thank you. Also I am on Minds as well. I find your derision and approval of censoring a particular news source whilst talking about free thinking ironic. Free thinkers are capable of differentiating good information from speculation without wanting to silence the source.

Opie ♻️, nvm anything I just said. You seem to be a leftist shill.
Nina One
Opie ♻️, thanks; that’s what I wanted to know.
Nina One
Zozos, Opie isn’t any kind of shill. Responding topically makes sense, but if bias is present it will still infiltrate. And anything that gives more spread and power to the far-right is dangerous, in my view. Free speech for abusive people is suppression for those they oppress.

Zozos, I'm happy to shill if that's what it takes. Just so you know: property is theft, the South lost the Civil War, entitled white boys are engineering their own demise, and antifa are on the case. Zuckerberg is the epitome of freemarket capitalism, so if you see yourself as libertarian, he's your man. BTW, since when is FB a news source? Is it because the Rothschilds own the NYT and the Trilateral Commission?

Opie ♻️, Taxation is theft. The civil war was only in part about slavery but we are the only nation to fight a bloody civil war to end it, guilt ridden progressive whites are engineering the demise of western culture in general. Zuckerbot is going to experience the free market correction for bad actors over the next 2-5 years and I'm looking forward to it. Facebook was a news source if you knew how to seek out information sources, but no longer. I have zero idea what you are driving at with the last line but the NYT is a shitshow of progressive bias and has printed enough false stories in the last year alone to disregard it as an objective source. The articles can still be useful if you can filter for all the egregious biases. If this is one of your primary sources your own skewed perspective is not surprising.

There you go, you've completed my task. All that remains to be seen are your views on guns, vaxxing and planetary sphericity. Then we can point you to the appropriate corners of Sola.

Oh look who just got blocked. Believe it or not I did not come here to argue with the progressives useful idiots. Too bad all you have is spouting leftist talking points in everything I've seen you comment on. So 2 dimensional, almost like an NPC...
ZozosAuthor
Nina One, I wouldn't put much stock in what Opie says. He is locked into his own narrow worldview. Punkrock libertarians are more right leaning but quick to point out hypocrisy from the right. Like most libertarians they don't fit neatly in the left-right paradigm but I would have to say they lean right more often than left on most issues.
Nina One
Zozos, thanks, but I’ll continue to trust Opie. His worldview aligns with my own.

Nina One, sure stick with the echo chamber that keeps making caricatures out of political opposition instead of finding out what we actually believe and why. You seem to have honest questions and aren't baiting political argument so I would be glad to answer any such questions from you in the future. I'm not interested in engaging with the likes of Opie. He is so convinced of his own position and who he thinks the opposition is there is no room for productive dialogue. This whole stupid thing was just supposed to be "who I am and why I came here from Facebook". I didn't intend for it to become political in focus. Sorry to everyone else that it did.
Nina One
Zozos, I’ve chatted repeatedly and at length with libertarians on here, listened to their views and why they hold them, and argued till I’m blue in the face. It’s been nothing but an exercise in frustration. There are crucial differences in values that block any approach to a meeting of minds. While I appreciate your openness and acknowledge that individual differences exist, I’m not going down that road again. If we come across each other on non-political cards, at least we won’t have built-up animosity to prevent ordinary exchanges.
