      RT has disappeared from Youtube and the internet.

      It’s so helpful to have a space where sentiments even those which are inconsistent with US political climate….can be expressed….

      What if………..???

      .But it is 8:30 pm, and RT is still up on Youtube….

        Nothing has been posted on my youtube in the past 6 hours…

        The internet has been taken out.

        But I’ll keep checking –  Heh, Let’s be careful out there!

      was I the only one that thought that it was bad Idea. Then 20 years later other people started to agree . Now I don’t have another 20 years.

      We now live in the era that most of us have feared for years, where government mandated and corporate approved censorship has become rampant, and supported by great numbers of incurious and gullible people.

      Honest question though, do we have the leadership here or ideas to organize a plan B? Is there an archived version of the site that can be reactivated, could there be a contact list of members who are established and trusted, and an invite system after that? I don’t know enough about such things.

      Regarding RT, I’ve had no problem getting it online, I do wander the earth with my VPN though.

       Or @landofenchantment or @deadpool, but my thought was to leave a message on Water Cooler at Naked Capitalism. Yves Smith has more muscle behind her than this site does as propornot found out way back when.

      Assuming that there is anything that can be done,

      And that assumes it’s tolerated by Lambert and NC, it’s a blog, not a message board, and it’s their site.  And even they will be crushed if tptb really want them gone. I know Yves has mentioned recently that at the end of the day they are at the mercy of their host as well.

       

       

      In America, “Liberty” means “Free to Die in Service of Capital” - Amfortas the hippie.

      Most of today’s elites have the moral and social reasoning capacities of spoiled toddlers.

The sensitivity of the poor to injustice is a trivial thing c

      RT was down for a little while. I thought they shut it down, too. It’s working okay now. Whew!! I haven’t tried the videos, yet.

      There appears to be no more Comments at the bottom of their articles. I can live with that.

        I am absolutely not saying that RT is not being fucked with and may disappear, I am actually surprised and hope we have a plan B I can get to.  I just want people to know we can still hope to get some actual news.

        The comments do look infested with sockpuppets.

          I just checked RT Videos on YouTube. You’re right, they all had Comments.

          Then I went back and checked the RT website (which was shut down for a little while). All the articles I read on the website had no Comments. Maybe RT eliminated the Comments themselves. Lately half the Comments were anti-Russia. It seemed like a lot of trolls suddenly showed up.

          If I may add, I just went to the RT website on my cell phone and received a message:

          “Wait while we check your browser….wait….”. About 10 seconds later the website opened. That was a first.

      Speaking of censorship- You Tube didn’t send notifications of the last few Jimmy Dore videos. They were all dealing with Ukraine. Hmm…. 🤔

      Where Glenn Greenwald went.  Or blogspot?

      I wonder if we should consider forming a coalition of alternative outlets and forums?  United we stand, divided we fall?

      Destruction is easy; creation is hard, but more interesting.
