"Is It OK to Manipulate People to Extract Their Money, Just not for Politics?

"It's not 'Fake News' That's the Problem, It's the Algorithms That Disseminate It

"Because of its restricted focus, the usefulness of many of the solutions proposed in the DCMS Committee's report is somewhat limited. That's disappointing. But all is far from lost, and there are other directions for progress. To get there, we need to think bigger than Facebook. It's time to acknowledge the role of surveillance capitalism in these systemic issues. It's time to recognise that the problem isn't just content - it's dissemination and amplification by algorithm to maximise profit at all costs."

For Profit threats in order of severity:

1) Finance, Insurance and Real Estate. - the banksters and Wall St. parasites are the greatest threat the human race has ever faced.

2) For profit Medicine and pharmaceuticals.

3) For profit Energy

4) For profit communications. Includes the Tower of Babel that the monetized internet has devolved to as well as exaggerated intellectual property monopolizations and extractions.

5) For profit mass transportation

Long indeed! It's the purely abstract enterprises, though, that are the most destructive. They have no material product or service. Their profits, like the FIRE sector's, are purely parasitic and a fatal disease of the economy that supports human life.
