1.1 Why a Better Social Network is Important

The foundation of human progress is our ability to communicate with our friends, families, neighbors and community. Communication is how we share information, build communities and grow our businesses, clubs, social networks and even political movements.


Being able to communicate openly, freely and securely is also the best way to solve problems and resolve conflicts – both of which require the ability to share and hear all points of view. Free, open communication is also the basis of the scientific method and is essential to critical thinking.


In addition, our economy is increasingly based on information sharing technology. However, rather than using information sharing for educational purposes, the current top down networks use information sharing technology to maximize short term profits.

Freedom of expression, access to information, and privacy are fundamental human rights that should be respected on the Internet as well as in real life. Just as the key to political freedom is local control of government, the key to freedom of speech is local control of the data.

1.2 Why Twitter is still part of the Evil Empire

For many years, Twitter and Facebook have been a two-headed monster who shadow banned and censored anyone who dared to tell the truth about the Deep State takeover here in the US.


Is Elon Musk our Savior or Controlled Opposition?
In 2019, a senior Twitter executive was unmasked as an active duty officer in the British Army’s online psychological operations unit. Many had hoped that Musk buying Twitter would lead to a change in direction. This hope crashed and burned on May 11 2023 when Musk announced that he was hiring one of the most evil people on the planet to run Twitter. Her name is Linda Yaccarino. Besides being the current advertising head of NBC, Lockdown Linda is a high ranking member of the World Economic Forum. As Musk himself noted: “WEF is increasingly becoming an unelected world government that the people never asked for and don’t want.”


Note that more than 247,000 people agreed with his post.

So why did Musk choose a CEO who was the biggest cheerleader for the lockdown and is still a WEF Globalist?

To make matters worse, Linda is a huge cheerleader for forcing clot shots on kids – regardless of the harm. In fact, Linda was the chair of a gazillion dollar propaganda campaign to convince Americans that taking experimental clots shots would be good for them. Yaccarino boasts that she partnered with the Biden Administration, the CDC and government agencies to promote and market the Covid-19 clot shots.


Remember all the nonstop claims that clot shots would reduce transmission? That campaign was spearheaded by Yaccarino. We now know it was all lies and propaganda – just like Linda’s idiotic claim that cotton masks can stop microscopic viruses.

Here is Linda telling us we need to mask up or pack up. (Warning: Do not watch this if you have a sensitive stomach… This 43 second video can lead to uncontrollable vomiting). https://twitter.com/BernieSpofforth/status/1656923064519610378


Lockdown Linda was also a cheer leader for the lockdown that costs millions of Americans their jobs and their homes:


People were fired, had their lives ruined, lost friends or family members, over declining to get a clot shot. Mandates were enforced, regulatory agencies politicized, all based on these worthless and even dangerous clot shots.

1.3 Drawbacks of Facebook

In 2018 and 2020, a month or two before the election, Facebook decided to take down nearly one thousand accounts. Some of these accounts had been up for years and some had more than a million followers. Millions of anti-war and or pro-Trump supporters were adversely affected. Here are some examples:


Antiwar critics of establishment politics @AntiMedia and @TFTPROJECT just had their pages with millions of followers deleted by Facebook, along with hundreds of other alternative media outlets. Latest escalation of corporate censorship used as state censorship.


I’ve been memory holed from Facebook! 350k followers poof gone! There is a dangerous precedent being set here where the big tech companies have appointed themselves as the gate keepers of political thought and opinion!

1.4 Drawbacks of Telegram, Signal, Gab and Discord

A social networking service is an online platform that people use to build social networks or social relationships with other people who share similar interests, activities, backgrounds or connections. The most popular social network is Facebook – with Twitter coming in a distant second.

However, in response to draconian censorship, many have fled Facebook and Twitter and now communicate on so-called Privacy and Free Speech respecting platforms such as Telegram, Signal and Discord. But these platforms are only as secure at the devices you use to access them. There is no security in setting up a Telegram or Signal or Discord group if your members are using Windows computers, Apple computers or Android phones to access the platform.

Secure communication is only possible if every member of the group is using either a Linux computer and or Linux phone. This is why I offer free courses in computer and phone security and teach folks how to create and use Linux computers and Linux phones.

While it is not difficult to add a Telegram or Signal or Discord account to your Linux laptop or your Linux phone, I still have concerns about the security of communication on these platforms. Given the important of secure communications, here are some questions we should all be asking about Telegram and Signal:

Who owns Telegram? Who owns Signal? Who owns Gab? Who owns Discord?

Where are the Telegram servers? Where are the Signal servers? Where are the Gab servers? Where are the Discord servers?

Who controls the databases?

Does Telegram, Signal, Gab or Discord censor or shutdown user accounts?

Here is some information that partially answers these questions.
