Axios: Oh, No! The Right Wing Is Building "Its Own Echo Chamber," Separate from Our Corporate-Backed, Monopoly-Enforced Echo Chamber

They're upset that we're no longer willing to submit to their censorship and control.

Conservatives are aggressively building their own apps, phones, cryptocurrencies and publishing houses in an attempt to circumvent what they see as an increasingly liberal internet and media ecosystem.

Why it matters: Many of these efforts couldn't exist without the backing of major corporate figures and billionaires who are eager to push back against things like "censorship" and "cancel culture."

Those words are in "doubt quotes" to show that their existence is highly dubious.

8 I notice they don't use scare quotes on "echo chamber."
Posted by: Bertram Cabot, Jr.

The bottom line: Conservative media has been a powerhouse for a long time, but this phase of its expansion isn't just about more or louder conservative voices -- it's about building an entire conservative ecosystem.

Right. You noticed that to, did you? This is also akin to Twitter's new "no pictures without consent from everyone in it" policy. A bunch of non-communists have been swarming the leftist Twitter accounts with violation reports, using the rule against the people who wrote it. This is another example of the same phenomenon.

These rules and methods exist for them to use against not-them. Any use of anything by not-them is an unbearable violation.

God knows they tried. Rush always said they did not have the talent to be able to talk off script for four hours.

I think that is part of it, but more than that: Liberals want to be on TV. They want to be seen. There is a performance artist part of it. 'See Lucy Kung Fu Grip Houlihan?! (who would not give me a date in high school) See! I am on TV! And I have much hotter interns!'

37 It's good that the effort is being made, but all of these platforms eventually get infiltrated and coopted by Marxists.

We need a decentralized/uncensorable social media protocol where the content is replicated/distributed across nodes (ala BitTorrent), so there is no single point of failure/control. But this is a difficult problem to solve technically.

That would be a great startup if you could figure out the architecture. The problem with Social Media is that it depends on participation and big names to attract people, and we can't even get names like Nick Searcy to bail on Twitter and Facebook for the alternatives.

When it becomes too inconvenient, Big Tech will crush them all. There is nothing to stop them beyond making folks mad. There will come a time when not even that matters.

What needs to happen to avoid that at this point is to build an entire parallel civilization. Not just our own internet or whatnot, it needs to be everything. Communications. Schools. Banks. Businesses. In short, everything.

The Wall Street cabal is stupid enough to turn half of the entire population into criminals, to the extent the cabal hasn't unpersoned these people already. But centralized anything is vulnerable to all out attack. Crypto it up, and accept the swings as facts of life. And make do without banking- farmers markets and rural life will help you?

Have an urban mortgage? Well, you're probably fucked, but that was going to happen anyways. Resolve it before the banks resolve you.

The latter has my bet, and it is entirely predictable. Good evolutionary strategy is "be more transmissible and less severe" and this is also the typical progression. The stronger (evolution-wise) variant will crowd out and minimize or potentially exterminate the others.

151 This quote from Alpha Centari is evergreen. The speaker is intended basically to be a "good government liberal" that all the left claimed to be 20 years ago.

As the Americans learned so painfully in Earth's final century, free flow of information is the only safeguard against tyranny. The once-chained people whose leaders at last lose their grip on information flow will soon burst with freedom and vitality, but the free nation gradually constructing its grip on public discourse has begun its rapid slide into despotism. Beware of he who would deny you access to information, for in his heart he dreams himself your master.

My dad was spot on with this. I remember, vividly, coming home with my mom in the summer of 1994 to find my dad unexpectedly home with the PC in pieces on the kitchen table, installing a modem. My mom asked him what it did and he replied, "it lets the computer talk on the phone with other computers." She freaked out about the price ($400, IIRC) and accused him of wasting far too much money on a fad.

Drum's used to sound like one thing up until the 70's and then Phil Collin's (obviously not the first to do it) used this tech in Air Tonight and the world was lit on fire.

Huge fan going back to their pre-pop days. Back in 1980 when they were touring they did a signing at Tower Records. I took my laser etched LP in with my Letraset colored markers and had the band sign using "true colors" instead of black sharpies. Neil kept my purple marker. So I have a fully signed LP cover and sleeve. BTW, they were awesome live. The crappy PA at Keystone Palo Alto died for about 5 minutes, so Noel Crombie played the spoons while Tim danced. Showmanship.

247 I'm going to say 'yes'. Classical Music holds up and is rediscovered by new generations. It takes skill and art to perform well so it attracts high-functioning artists.

I hope so, but I have my doubts. The difference is that generations younger than 29 have the attention span of a meth-addicted gnat. Classical takes time and patience to appreciate.

Funny enough, Neil joined the band on album #2, but wasn't much of a writer at first. He hit stride on their first hit (he wrote "I Got You"). The next album Waiata/Corroboree his brother Tim wrote "Hard Act To Follow" because Neil had gotten so good. IMHO the Best Crowded House is Woodface, with brother Tim on board. Less poppy/happy than their hit debut.

Fish have no idea they are wet. Progessives have no idea of the size of their bubble or the default left bias in our culture our media and our institutions.

Boo fucking hoo that there is a sliver of conservative bias anywhere.

Failure of the small relief valve that lets any expansion of conservative thought or values will not mean we go away it would mean we would have to necessarily go to war.

290 We need a decentralized/uncensorable social media protocol where the content is replicated/distributed across nodes (ala BitTorrent), so there is no single point of failure/control. But this is a difficult problem to solve technically.

It exists. The system is called SOLID and it is based on making your data portable. The reason why it doesn't go anywhere is because software costs huge amounts of money to develop, sell and support. Data happens organically but is where the real value lives. So if you use Quicken to do your taxes, the data is yours and you should be able to just take it to any Intuit competitor and use their software. SOLID is that scheme that permits it. if you have a business accounting package and you become disenchanted with the software and wish to change, SOLID would permit that. Problem is no one wants to write software to be compliant with SOLID because the data your customers add into your cloud based product is very valuable - and companies LOVE those continuous subscription fees.

310 From what I've seen movies/commercials are unlike to go past the 90s for music - there just isn't enough quality and built in audience in music past that point.

Take someone born in the 70s and they likely have heard all the "hits" of the 80/90s and have some connection to them.

Now, take someone born in the 90s. They've likely never heard most of the "hits" of 10s/20s.

It's kind of sad when car commercials either bring awareness to an artist, or bring one back from the dead. That seems to be a trend that has gone away - since music - with chords and instruments and singing is now "ok boomer" territory.

And is it just me, or are all the $#%& car ads in Spanish now? Chevy and Subaru are definitely on my shit list. Why do I think that they're not running car ads in English in Honduras or Mexico?

324 I hope so, but I have my doubts. The difference is that generations younger than 29 have the attention span of a meth-addicted gnat. Classical takes time and patience to appreciate.

Posted by: pep at December 06, 2021 01:47 PM

I didn't care one way or another for classical music until my dad told me before going off to college that he read somewhere that listening to classical music helps to concentrate when studying. So I tried it and it did seem to help. So over the years at work, I've listened to classical music or music scores from movies/TV (Braveheart, Last of the Mohicans, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Black Sails) on my headphones to relax and concentrate.

And because over the years I have made YouTube playlists with this music, I get recommendations for stuff like this that I have come to like as well:

335 "261 Now here is the real stinger. It's not like gab or Parler or any of these other platforms actually censor liberals. They don't. The reason why they are "echo chambers" is liberals will not participate in a forum that doesn't censor and silence conservatives. That is the reason discussion on these sites skews right, is because specifically at their core they are supposed to be open forums and NOT echo chambers.
Posted by: mikethemoose at December 06, 2021 01:49 PM (T/vhV)"

And they don't participate in platforms that don't censor non-lefties because they can't compete with them on those terms.

Their ideology is highly effective politically (and militarily, once it hits that phase) but requires the ability to arm-twist those that don't comply. It's why they spent so long marching through the institutions.

339 How much government involvement goes into the MSM? How many control agents on the inside do their controlled "leaks" to their favored media organs, in order to drive the public discourse and serve the ends of their agencies?

A broad swath of the populace tuning out the MSM is also tuning out the government propaganda.

COVID is instructive. If people simply turned off the media, how they thought about COVID would rapidly change. COVID impacts my life every day -- but all of it is externally, from dealing with local BS caused as a consequence of it.

So, of course, they fear alternative media and will seek to throttle it in its cradle. If they fail, they will try to control it instead.

343 Creative output runs in cycles as well, and I think we've just lived through one such cycle - it will be a while before another one starts. Look back at English history; after the Reformation, when the old forms of the Roman Catholic Church were let go, England experienced an incredible burst of literary creativity, starting with Shakespeare and ending with the King James Bible, which between them standardized the English language. Music also exploded in ways never thought of before.

And what happened after that "Golden Age"? Social conflict, leading to Civil War, and after that nothing in literature, music, or the arts worth remembering was produced for the next 150 years or so.

The US Army Biathlon training center happens to be about 3 miles from where I live. Used to be up there a lot with my kids during the winter and occasionally the Army guys would go by on a training run (well ski actually). There are no words to adequately describe it, best I can come up with is being close to a locomotive pulling a fully loaded freight train. The raw power emanating from those soldiers is unbelievable.

Disagree entirely. The morally blank Tater would have been PR representative at Bergen-Belson (for example) with enthusiasm, explaining the nearby towns how great an economic opportunity death camps could be. He would have been bursting from his uniform, and his commander would forever be threatening him with the Russian Front (ineffectiveness is bad), but Tater would have loved the Reich.

382 50's music was getting terrible Pat Booney until rock and roll really kicked off. Very corporate and carefully shaped. That happens over and over, but always some new fresh amazing idea or movement kicked in when things were starting to get stale in the past.

Except today, when record companies are seeing profits drop off a cliff and are desperate to make sure they put out saleable, safe product and give ZERO room to creativity or fresh ideas.

Plus, there's an almost 100% certain correlation between Roe vs Wade and the dearth of creativity. How many Bachs and Beethovens, how many Shakepeares and Doyles and Michaelangelos were simply murdered in the womb?

God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables - slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars, but we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.

Other societies in history that have had this problem usually have responded by starting a nice little war somewhere where all this excess energy can burn itself out. There's a lot of thought that this, more than anything else, was what was behind the crusades. Everyone in Europe was glad to see those guys sail away, and hoped they would never return.

It's neat how that's probably the reason I look at the 90s with so much fondness. No one gave a sh*t about racism anymore. There weren't any wars except for the ones that we were creating because we needed to make them up. And we can say that now because look around us.

Then "our betters" decided to seriously f*ck everything up on purpose in order to keep America from getting better.

The Beatles were really good at what they did.

Paul was desperately trying to keep it all going to no avail.

Ringo and George were better than given credit at the time.

The most fascinating scene is Paul sitting down with his Bassman bass and literally conjuring the song Get Back from the ether while George and Ringo watch with boredom then intently joining in and then John shows up late takes off his fur coat and joins in mid stream without missing a beat.

426 The 90s had some terrific music, but the good stopped in the late 90s. It became stagnant even then with a few desperate gasps at something interesting like Garbage.

The problem was the internet. It became too easy to get the music you wanted without bothering to pay exorbitant prices for CDs. You could listen to what you wanted, when you wanted instead of waiting for the local station to play it. As a result, record companies saw their sales plummet and their money disappear. No more doing blow off a supermodel's rear end in your Lamborghini any longer.

Record companies did not know how to respond to this change, or what to do, so they freaked out and locked onto the one consistent safe selling and reliable market niche: 13-17 year old girls. They'd buy and listen to anything no matter how terrible because it had a beat you could dance to and cute boys. You could release the same song 15 times in a row with very slight changes and the little girls didn't care, they got daddy to buy them the new songs anyway.

431 I have to disagree on the "everything in the 90s was dreck" position. There was a lot of dreck, but also a lot of innovation and new stuff being tried in music. It was an odd confluence of events. The price of studio time crashed because good equipment was suddenly much cheaper. There was lots of room for independents to flourish. The internet and piracy hadn't yet destroyed profitability. Music videos, while not new, entered what I think was their heyday.

There was so much money being made everywhere in the industry that everyone was willing to try just about anything. A lot of it was shit, but there was whole lot of stuff being tried and a lot of it was quite good. There was tremendous innovation and experimentation in the 90s and a real appetite for risk that all died off when Napster ended the party. The party would have ended anyway since they always do, but internet piracy was the cause that time.

the 90's, it turns out...was a great era for music. We were just talking about this the other day with Liz Phair. You could deep dive into 90's college music as you wanted. Counting Crows on the radio, Nirvana in the dorm with Pauls Boutique and Zepplin hits, or go to the deeper college stuff like Phair or Pixies or whatever.

It's funny, I've been listening to the 80's channel on Xfinity while I work lately. It sends me back to the 1980s, when I was a kid. It actually sends me back to a time of innocence. With each song that comes on the playlist, I can remember times in my life. Such as Roxette songs (The Look) which remind me of a crush I had on a girl in junior high. That's how some 90s songs work for me as well. Sends me back to that time in my life. It's not really that the songs are good or bad, but they bring back certain memories.

Not just Pfizer, also Moderna and Johnson&Johnson and in a pattern that looks as if they colluded to both not overlap their trials, but with the Pfizer, issue particular batches with sequentially less toxic elements.

If this is not a data collection or listing error, then there is a serious problem going on that may require tribunals.

514 Country music in the '90s was the only stuff I could stand to listen to. It seemed the only genre left where the artists tried to look their *best* on stage, and where you still had melodies that stayed in your mind and lyrics that really sang. See "Three Wooden Crosses" by Randy Travis (I know, that was a 2000s song) and "Beaches of Cheyenne" among others by Garth Brooks. Brooks in particular *seemed* to be doing something in country that had never been done before. (Remember, I said "seemed.")

524 I remember Aerosmith from the 90s as the band with Alicia Silverstone in the videos. I think it was 3 of them back to back to back.

530 You were listening to different music. I was listening to rabid Thatcher/Reagan hatred in the punk/post-punk world.

even then though it was interesting and that is because they had something to be against.

the 90s was just nice.

The Dead Kennedy's had two versions of California Uber Allies - One attacking Reagan, one Governor Jerry Brown.

They were at least following their own ideas, which I can respect.

534 No, I don't care about modern country. It all sounds alike, and there is nothing outstanding about any of it. Nobody comes anywhere near "Love, Me," by Collin Raye, or Reba McIntyre's remake of "Fancy," or Hal Ketchum's "Small Town Saturday Night."

Posted by: Wolfus Aurelius at December 06, 2021 02:34 PM (txdEq)

535 even then, Aerosmith, INXS, Van Halen, are 80s bands

Posted by: confederatefifth at December 06, 2021 02:14 PM

Yes, but I didn't discover them until the 1990s. Unfortunately, I lived a pretty sheltered life, thanks to being the first child and having overprotective parents. I didn't discover GnR until I went over to a friend's house to hangout and he was playing GnR CDs, Use your Illusion (which were new to me, I was still playing cassette tapes).

For my birthday one year, I got a "boom box" with CD player and my first CD: Aerosmith - Get a Grip. I played that over and over. My uncle, who was huge into "classic rock" then turned me on to a lot of their previous albums as well as bands like INXS. I was an instant fan. My uncle died a few years ago after a motorcycle accident and to this day, whenever I hear Aerosmith or INXS songs on the radio, I think of him.

536 I watched maybe 30 mins of Olympics this past year. And that was at a restaurant that had it in the background. It used to be fun to root for Americans. But now those Americans hate America, so fuck 'em.

one great bit from SNL within the last decade was when DaveGrohl and Armesan did a bit where they're reunited their punk band at a wedding and the lyrics were dated 80's bullsh like "tell me where the bombs are Alexander Haig". oh man, best bit ever they need to reunite.

I imagine a large fraction of the 'best people' have forged their vax status, possibly to the same percentage as the anti-vaxxers. It might explain why the failure of vax to protect is curiously never pursued by the powers that be.

545 The problem was the internet. It became too easy to get the music you wanted without bothering to pay exorbitant prices for CDs. You could listen to what you wanted, when you wanted instead of waiting for the local station to play it. As a result, record companies saw their sales plummet and their money disappear.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at December 06, 2021 02:16 PM

Yep, I remember downloading everything from Napster. Sometimes I'd end up buying the CD if I liked enough of the songs on the album. But a lot of times, I'd realize I only liked 1 or 2 songs and that buying the CD for only those 1 or 2 songs was a waste. I'm sure others made the same decisions.

I've seen comments elsewhere to the effect that it's awfully weird how the moronic variant is said to have the same side effects, including heart issues, as the current vaxxines.

549 That would be a great startup if you could figure out the architecture. The problem with Social Media is that it depends on participation and big names to attract people, and we can't even get names like Nick Searcy to bail on Twitter and Facebook for the alternatives.
