@aral The UK are already ahead on this - UK police record reports, rumours and gossip about individuals, there is no due-process to have this checked, edited, corrected or challenged, and then they can proactively act on this, and can release this 'social credit' information as part of an 'Enhanced Criminal Records' request made by any public (or many private) organisation.

The difference is they didn't give it such an obvious name as the chinese have.

@gmcgath @freetalklive The yellow vests are not stupid - they have seen group 'leaders' corrupted and bribed over and over and over -- they have no leaders, they cannot be sold out - the concerns of all yellow vests need to be addressed to each individuals satisfaction.

Anarchy in Action.

I see 'Tommy Robinson' "founder of EDL", "former leader of the EDL", "EDL, EDL, EDL", "real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon", "also known as Stephen Yaxley-Lennon", "convict", "convicted fraudster", "mortgage cheat", " thug", "police attacker". blah blah blah blah....

That bloke, a bloke with some history, history well behind him, he won today... the establishment were laid low today - including Nigel Farage and his ilk.

Tommy has a jewellery range! Stephen Yaxley Lennon earrings in gold!

Marriott discloses massive data breach affecting up to 500 million guests

“The breach included names, email addresses, passport numbers and payment information, according to the hotel giant.”

In other words, everything you need to steal an identity. Why was all this data retained to begin with? #GDPR

If the French do this over a tax rise, what will Brits do if they don't get full, real, #brexit - No-Deal? Bet the BBC don't cover this... >> Tear gas, water cannon, smoke grenades: ‘Yellow Vests’ protesters rally against fuel tax in Paris youtube.com/watch?v=UQw_-DRER0

Free trade and specialisation with no external interference allowed two men to spend (between them) ten days hunting instead of only eight.

This is why the loony lefty tree hugging vegans hate free markets.

The men happen to meet and agree that the first should make all the arrows for both men - taking two days, and that the second man should make bows for both men, also taking two days, then they will exchange half the arrows for half the bows and then go hunting...

The manufacturing has only taken two days leaving five days for the men to go hunting for food.

Two strangers have a week to go hunting to fill their larders.

One man is good at making arrows but bad at making bows - to make his arrows would take him one day, to make his bow would take him two - a total of three days, leaving four days to hunt.

The other man is good at making bows but bad at making arrows - to make his bow would take him one day, but to make his arrows will take him two - a total of three days, leaving him four days to hunt.

Wow de-anonymising crypto in EU/UK is specifically mentioned as part of the EU/UK draft Brexit agreement....

Liberdon

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.

Mastodon is a decentralized "federation" of community-run Mastodon servers which are part of an even greater federation called "the Fediverse". No matter how many users are on the instance you join, you can still follow and interact with the millions of users on any other instance throughout the Fediverse!

This is a primarily English-speaking instance, although everyone is welcome.

Enjoy!
