As the UK election nears, the bile and vituperousness of our politicians becomes more exposed.
I have made my mind up of who I’m going to vote for.
I’m going to vote for the one who is less ‘nasty’, who does not spread calomnies nor slander, who is the most dignified and who is earnest; the one who is moderate in speech, tone and demeanour.
The politicians I hear promoting themselves all use the seven deadly sins of speaking…
And learn that your words are turning people away from you.
I saw this before. I forgot how I enjoyed it. So I’m archiving it here…..
So, how is society dealing with this?
Today, all videos on YouTube are to be classified as ‘made for kids’ or not.
Would this help with filtering out porn for households using a kids setting on their computers? Would kids using blocked computers only get movies graded at ‘made for kids’?
Would YouTube never offer kids videos about volcanoes, or history, or cooking or grasshoppers on a search? Who is actually going to mark every video uploaded as graded, or not graded for kids? And do it retrospectively?
The world of YouTube is not ‘made for kids’. The world of YouTube is a collection of trillions of experiences, thoughts, ideas, and cultural offerings made mostly by grownups for grownups over many, many years.
In fact the world is not ‘made for kids’.
For kids, the world is a dangerous place. Adults are there.
Or is this a way YouTube could do a giant cleanup and remove any video, and all old ones, not so graded.
You tell me……
Well, well, now how about this?
We’ve got poor abused Greta.
We’ve got poor abused Desmond.
If this is the way of the future, then we are stuffed!
I thought there was something alien on this planet. I thought it was just that the planet felt alien to ME. But now I know it’s not me, the people on this planet are much stranger that you could imagine…..
Enjoy Desmond, the “Future of the World”.
