Thinkr8, Truth Told

… they don’t understand that it’s their story, …

“The dominator culture is increasingly more and more sophisticated in its perfection of subliminal mechanisms of control. And I don’t mean anything grandiose and paranoid. I just mean that through press releases and soundbites and the enforced idiocy of television, the drama of a dying world has been turned into a soap opera for most people. And they don’t understand that it’s their story, and that they will eat it in the final act, if somewhere between here and the final act they don’t stand up on their hind legs and howl. And it’s not done through organizing. It’s not done through vanguard parties or cadres of intellectual elites. It’s done through just walking away from all of that: Claiming your identity, claiming your vision, your being, your intuition, and then acting from that without regret. Cleanly. Without regret.”

Terence McKenna (1946-2000)

McKenna’s entrancing lectures covered everything from shamanism, language, imagination, the Internet, and consciousness to religion, dreams, the origins and evolution of life, culture, alchemy, alienation, chemistry, sex, art, and literature.

Facebook is going to let publishers start charging readers to view stories.

I consider this to be “BAD NEWS” for those of us that are struggling to make a living in this ever increasing world of stupidity. This new service will affect every user of the Facebook platform.

“The social network has started briefing publishers on the forthcoming subscription service and hopes to start testing it by October, according to a person familiar with the matter. Facebook is currently telling publishers they’ll be able to show at least 10 free articles per month before the paywall kicks in.”

Source link is at the end of this article, for more about this breaking news.

I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not always the sharper tool in the shed -but- if I’m understanding this correctly, if you want to go to a link of a media outlet (TV media, on-line Newspaper) you will have to pay a fee. This is bad news.

Or if I’m understanding this as – since I have two website’s (www.thinkr8.comwww.amerispheresoftware.wordpress.com) and two Fb page’s linking to those websites, and you the reader here in Fb see my post from any one of my Fb page’s and want to link to the website article, you’ll have to pay a fee to me. And if that’s the case, then “Great” I would start to make on-line money. Cause as it stands now, you don’t (yes, some have, thank you) support my on-line endeavor’s. Having said that, if the latter is correct then I’m all for the up and coming new subscription service.

Another funny thing I noticed about this news – I googled it, and there were no links to any tech sites, (Tech Crunch, PCWorld, CNet, Computerworld, etc.) only local tv station across the U.S., Weird, very weird.
