@ShawnTheAtheist Disagree because of the dominance of #socialmedia: The platforms that banned #InfoWars reach over 2 billion people & as such are not just "private companies". What we need fast is a Digital Bill of Rights to ensure a #FreeInternet & a free exchange of ideas on all platforms.
@ShawnTheAtheist 2. I do not value #InfoWars & #AlexJones as provider of "news". I see them more as infotainment, with the focus being less on "info", but all #censorship is a slippery slope!
Fact the top opinion-shapers realised the power of #socialmedia & they don't like it!
@ShawnTheAtheist 3. #Censorship & different forms of #Shadowbanning have existed for years.
I just came out of a shadowban on #Twitter, when my #impressions dropped from 270.000 in a day to just 10.000 - Reason: I disagreed with Jack Dorsey on Twitter not using censorship (indeed ironic!).
@ShawnTheAtheist 4. At the end the main "opinion-makers", from politics, to media, to big business, do not enjoy the fact that the previous quasi-monopoly on opinion-shaping is now being challenged on #socialmedia.
Banning is now the new book burning!
@ShawnTheAtheist 5. There is no real #democracy without free speech & free press: If we accept that traditional media becomes less dominant (fact, just see the stats) & that #socialmedia is becoming more & more dominant, we need to strongly consider this fact & not hide behind "private company"!

2. MORE RECENT: "Her catastrophic handling of her mutinous spy chief Hans-Georg #Maaßen — first promoting him, then reversing that decision — suggests she has lost a sense of perspective." #Merkel #EndTimes
3. "Days later, her own party, the conservative #CDU, turned against her. In a secret ballot on Wednesday, the #CDU’s lawmakers ousted #Merkel’s longtime ally Volker #Kauder and picked the lesser-known Ralph #Brinkhaus to lead the party’s parliamentary group." #EndTimes

@Der_Eisenhans I logged out at 24:30 & listened to Bach - Much better.

#Kavanaugh did not impress me: Comes across like a guy who wants to become Sheriff of a small town in #Texas, not #SCOTUS-Judge.
Losing his cool, stories about promoting women, prayers by junior & more, ALL irrelevant!
@Der_Eisenhans 2. #Ford does not always make sense (recalls only one beer 35 years ago, but not documents to the #WaPo a month ago) - Her timing also shows that she has a clear political motive: Prevent #Kavanaugh from becoming #SCOTUS-Judge.
She did not impress.
@Der_Eisenhans 3. But even if we accept that #Kavanaugh is innocent (which he remains in any case until found guilty by a court), his non-performance shows that he is not made out of the stuff a top judge & decision-maker is made off: Presented his case poorly (as a top judge!). TBC

@feldenfrizz @mariae_gloria Es gibt ja auch eine Show-Welt und eine Verwurstungs-Schau(rig)-Welt: #Küblböck wurde Teil der zweiten, deren Ziel die bewusste Ausschlachtung von Schwächen von Menschen ist, die vorgeführt, herabgesetzt, verspottet und lächerlich gemacht werden. Nichts für zarte Seelen! #DSDS
@feldenfrizz @mariae_gloria 2. Er spielte den lachenenden Clown, aber sein Wesen verriet auch eine klare bipolare Persönlichkeit, wie man sie bei vielen Opfern der Reality-TV-Formate findet.
#Kuebelboeck #DSDS
@feldenfrizz @mariae_gloria 3. Diese Opfer durchschauen nicht das mit bigottem Ernst suggeriert wird echte #Superstars zu kreieren, aber sie dienen nur als Witzfiguren für die Klatschpresse.
Echter Erfolg ist nicht gewollt, da es spätere "Darsteller" überschatten würde!

2. "Generosity is a virtue, but unlimited generosity is a fast route to bankruptcy.

Humanitarianism is commendable, but not when you’re demanding that others share the burdens and expense.

A very liberal immigration policy is wise, but helter-skelter migration isn’t."
#Merkel
3. "Knowing how to set broad but clear limits is one of the essentials of conservative governance. Merkel’s failure is that she ceased to be conservative."

@cjjacobsJacobs @CDU @JuliaKloeckner @annewill 1. Various questions need to be asked:
a) Is the #earth getting warmer? Answer Yes (but was ven warmer in the past)
b) Human impact on climate (CO2)? A: Yes, but science differ on size of impact.
@cjjacobsJacobs @CDU @JuliaKloeckner @annewill 2.
c) #Germany produces 2% of all CO2 - So if we all live in tents tomorrow & only ride bicycles will it make a big difference? A: No, but the Chinese & Americans won't stop laughing!
#AnneWill #Klimawandel #ClimateChange
@cjjacobsJacobs @CDU @JuliaKloeckner @annewill 3.
So I like a debate on points a) to c) purely based on #science (and "a consensus of paid lobbyscientists" is not science, but politics) & come up with workable solutions.
PS: Currently #China produces around 26% of all man-made CO2.

@Futureworldxxl @WirtschaftDE @frazionetoskana @tbgstephen @crypt_ghost @ThomasGBauer @Thomas190163 @m_aus_s @Patriotenfrank @webaxvita @ReneTruninger @jaegermeisterl @SamanthaMller16 @sabine_m_b 1. On the #Gauland-interview: It's the role of the press to ask difficult questions (which #BerlinDirekt does with other candidates as well).

It is not the fault of the #ZDF when the #AfD still has NOT determined clear (or any) policies on #pensions & other social issues!
@Futureworldxxl @WirtschaftDE @frazionetoskana @tbgstephen @crypt_ghost @ThomasGBauer @Thomas190163 @m_aus_s @Patriotenfrank @webaxvita @ReneTruninger @jaegermeisterl @SamanthaMller16 @sabine_m_b 2. As I stated before: The #AfD can not win on the medium or long term with just #MerkelMussWeg & #RefugeesOut. Security and Law & Order (with anti-#EU) may be the main driver of growth, but the AfD needs to find answers to other issues as well! It had 5 years to do so!
@Futureworldxxl @WirtschaftDE @frazionetoskana @tbgstephen @crypt_ghost @ThomasGBauer @Thomas190163 @m_aus_s @Patriotenfrank @webaxvita @ReneTruninger @jaegermeisterl @SamanthaMller16 @sabine_m_b 3. It is also clear to me that the #AfD tries to avoid these topics. Why? Because #Gauland, #VonStorch & Co know that it could divide the #AfD - Von Storch & #Meuthen sound like a right #FDP (on social issues): This will not please blue collar voters & many protest voters!
