Why do YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Reddit protect psychopaths, war criminals and rapists? PART 1

The answer is MONEY

I DON’T GIVE A FUCK IF GOOGLE REFUSE TO PAY ME FOR THIS!

The Internet that once connected us is quickly evolving into something that disconnects us!

The Internet has changed over the years, when I first used the Internet the connection was slow, it actually once took me about two hours to download a video that was less than 20 seconds! In many ways the Internet has improved we have faster connections, which allows us to stream HD videos and even live broadcasts. The Internet bought us social media, alternative media, independent journalism and information on anything. Its undeniable that the Internet has changed the way that many of us think, there does seem to be a mass awakening going on and the Internet has been a massive part of that awakening.

The mass awakening we are witnessing has caused panic in many governments and governments have rushed through laws that affect our freedom as a result of this. As well as changing laws websites and the Internet in general have also changed, for example YouTube today is full of corporate made, product placed videos. YouTube has been altered to suit regular uploaders, people that upload multiple videos everyday, the trouble is people (individuals) cannot upload videos everyday. Changes like this have been made to suit corporations because only corporations can upload videos everyday without it impacting the quality of they they make because only corporations have the budget and team to do that.

YouTube and Facebook have been over complicated, for example on the Facebook of old you could like something join a group or be a friend, not anymore! You can like a page but without clicking the “make posts visible” button you still don’t see them. You can be somebodies friend but not follow them or follow them without being there friend and mute them WTF? If somebody irritates you that much that you cannot be bothered to read a sentence they posted on Facebook ask yourself why are they your “friend?”

Facebook used to be full of ideas until they started this pay to reach shit, now Facebook is full of corporate sponsors and “fake news” helps give them an excuse to censor the Internet of information and ideas while promoting the corporate media (the real fake news.)

They will not use the Internet to disconnect you from your friends (life does that) but they will use the Internet to disconnect political movements, protests and political groups. The Internet was once a place full of ideas, from real people and information with very few adverts, today the Internet is a place of adverts and ideas from corporations of how to spend your money, corporate propaganda with very few real people because real people cannot afford to be heard anymore.

I COMPLAIN ABOUT AMAZON BUT USE AMAZON TO SELL! DOES THAT MAKE ME A HYPOCRITE?

I know what most of you are thinking, yes it does make you a hypocrite but let me attempt to defend this “obscene hypocrisy” to you.

I make zero budget documentaries, I was surprised sometimes even amazed at the success of some of these videos and wanted a DVD release for some of them, I chose Amazon as the company to distribute my DVDs not because I liked Amazon but because Amazon is our only option! “Nonsense” I hear you shout but I have contacted at least 30 to 40 Distributors, Amazon Create Space really was other then a couple that did contact me back, my only option at the time.

Amazon is undeniable user friendly and efficient compared to alternatives, the very few alternative self publishing companies, at that time (I last released a DVD over three years ago) were complicated to use, requiring file types that I was not even aware existed and irritating to the point of unusable DVD front cover designer software. Since then I have began to sell downloads using Sellfy but the sales on Sellfy are slow compared to the sales on Amazon.

Obviously this is due to the fact that Amazon has a huge monopoly when it comes to online sales and some of that success is definitely due to the user friendliness of Amazon as a customer and a publisher. The second reason I chose Amazon is obvious, millions of potential customers use it! As a publisher I wish their was an alternative but if their is I am still to find it, I don’t make a lot of money from Amazon but its something and I have a family to feed. I have set out alternatives (all my videos are on YouTube for free and many torrent websites as well as Sellfy) for people that like me refuse to spend money with Amazon due to their tax evasion, exploitation, zero hour contracts, lobbying and their general greed but unfortunately not using Amazon to sell due to my dislike of Amazon would be like removing my YouTube videos (something YouTube does regularly) due to my dislike of YouTube, the only person that loses anything is me, Amazon and YouTube will not even Notice I have gone.

I believe Amazon and companies like them should pay a fair wage to their workers as they should pay a fair amount of tax on their profit (50% for the least) they paid 0.5% last year. I believe as the customer its our responsibility to consider ethical issues before feeding the monster but as a seller you go where the people go, that just happens to be Amazon, you tell me the alternative?

Not using certain online services nowadays can led to not being heard at all and that is a big problem, what do you want us to do? Sit in silence in protest of corporate greed or use their own devices against them for as long as they allow us? Because I think YouTube, Facebook, Amazon, Twitter and many other online services and corporations do not care much for the truth, even if they do make money on it.
