The End is Finally Here! #4

 Fortunately, Caulfield and other experts have advice. We'll end here and pick up in the next Issue #4

Picking up from previous #3 on Boomer hate.

Article: While engaging privately is often best, there are cases where you may want to intervene publicly. For example, if an acquaintance is sharing false or misleading information that’s generating lots of engagement.

So does Suresh, one of the Toronto teens who’s spent weeks helping seniors master the basics of devices and the internet. “Just say it,” he said. “I know it's weird talking to your family about those specific topics, but it'll benefit them much more ... so you just might as well say it as soon as possible.”

Truth1 translation: Stay right on top to them. Allow them no rights or dignity. Feel free to beat them if you want. And F that damned Bill of rights! Human dignity, my @$$!

See what boomers are up against?  <<

Supply the Missing Context

This one might be called the John Cusack Problem.

Last month the actor tweeted a cartoon that showed a hand emblazoned with the Star of David seeming to crush a group of people. Near it was the quote "To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize." It was attributed to Voltaire, but the line actually originated with white nationalist Kevin Alfred Strom. Cusack, 53, also added his own comment to the tweet: “Follow the money.”

After facing blowback for the anti-Semitic message, Cusack blamed a “bot.” Then he said he didn’t understand the implications of what he shared. “I mistakenly retweeted an alt right account I thought was agreeing with the horrible bombing of a hospital in Palestine,” he tweeted.

Caulfield said it’s common for older people to unwittingly share things that have extremist messages or iconography. “It's very hard to see people posting stuff that may come from a kind of a dark place that they don't realize is dark,” Caulfield said. “What do you do when your parents go from posting Minions [memes] to posting hard-right memes about cement milkshakes?”

He says it’s important to intervene privately and help the person understand the larger — and more concerning — context.

“There's a good chance your family member doesn't understand that and might be horrified at what they're sharing. And so there’s a point to intervene and let people know, ‘Hey, I know, this was probably not what you meant, but…’”

Truth1: Isn't it fascinating that its not big brother policing us exclusively. They are conscripting volunteer "tutors' a.k.a. citizen word/thought police. So what exactly is a bad thought, idea or written expression? What ever it is, its protected speech in the Bill of Rights. <<

Keep It Positive and Personal

Experts agree that being non-confrontational is key. Daniel Kent founded Net Literacy, a nonprofit, in 2003 when he was in middle school in Indiana. One of its first programs was Senior Connects, which helps older people get online and gain basic internet skills.

“I think it’s fundamentally about treating [older people] with concern and respect. Recognizing that ... perhaps they had the best of intentions, but the execution on their part perhaps wasn't the most, the most thoughtful and mindful,” he said.

Truth1: They are being 100% dishonest here above. They are saying, try to allow them to recant by saying it was a mistake or misunderstanding. If they back down then let it go. Otherwise? Beat them senseless and with extreme prejudice. Remember, they have no rights. It our way . . . or the gas chambers! <<

If you do want to say something, Kent and Caulfield suggest engaging in person — or by direct message or phone if that’s not possible. If you call someone out publicly on Facebook or elsewhere, they’re likely to feel attacked or shamed, and you won’t have a chance to hear why they wanted to share a particular piece of content. Understanding where someone is coming from and why they shared or posted what they did is essential, Kent and Caulfield say.

“With our volunteers [we] preach as much empathy as possible,” Kent said.

Truth1: my version of what they say between the lines: "[we] preach as much empathy as possible . . . before we pull out the billy/bully clubs and beat them into submission." Ya can't make this stuff up.

But Don’t Be Afraid to Go Public

While engaging privately is often best, there are cases where you may want to intervene publicly. For example, if an acquaintance is sharing false or misleading information that’s generating lots of engagement.

Truth1: As always, the problem is in the details. Far too much is covered up by labeling something as "false" or misleading. Like beauty, its in the eye of the beholder, whether it is or is not what some accuse. Free speech is still in effect, but not for much longer. <<

“You can think of yourself as intervening not really to stop the poster, but intervening on behalf of your friends who are seeing this and may get suckered by it,” he said.

Truth1: What a lying piece of leftist crap. "Your doing it to protect your friends." Their friends can decide for themselves. Big brother is watching. <<

The rule of not being aggressive or confrontational still applies. He suggested acknowledging the original poster’s sentiment, adding to the discussion by sharing an alternate report about the same topic, and saying why it offers a more accurate portrayal.

Truth1: Only problem is, the alternate report might be nonsense. It usually is. A more accurate portrayal? According to who?  Each should be able to decide for them selves. But not in leftist Commie land!

Get Them to Google (News) It

When someone in your life seems to share information that’s unmoored from reality, try to understand what emotion, opinion, or idea the person is trying to express — and shift them toward a better place to get that information.

“You push them to a better source that is related to their concern,” said Caulfield.

One caveat: If the particular idea or claim is odious or clearly false, it’s not your job to help them express it. “If they're a white supremacist, don't validate their concern,” he said. “But if they have a concern that is is somewhat valid, that comes from valid worries, you can empathize.”

Truth1: Everything this article is saying is put into cautious, seemingly nice terms. But what they are suggesting is actually very harsh and iron fisted censorship and abolition of the Bill of Rights. These are serious violations of the right to Free speech and thought. They should be allowed to debate. Note that harsh censorship and imprisonment for thoughts contrary to whatever the "state" mandates, is only found in Communist nations or dictatorships.

To me, the intent of the article I am discussing is nothing but violent and cruel. They mean to ban everything that they do not see as right. No discussion, dissention, or disagreement allowed. <<

Caulfield suggests encouraging the person to search for the central topic or claim on Google News, which exercises control over which websites are included in its database. This helps locate a story from a more credible source that still acknowledges their point of view or emotion.

Truth1: So they are admitting that Google already censors. But the truth is that all our media and books and educational facilities like schools and colleges, have been censored and carefully controlled throughout time. Never have we been free from it and its enforcement. But our best times in the Industrial Age are over. Push is coming to "shove and shoot," or imprison. Even some executions, eventually. <<

“Nine times out of 10, you could make your point with a story from USA Today,” said Caulfield. “It might not be the same clickbait headline, but it takes you 10 seconds to go find an [alternate] story.”

This exercise also exposes the person to different headlines about the same topic, helping them see which facts are broadly consistent across different outlets, or not. “There's just something that is really powerful about going to Google News and scanning those headlines and seeing, ‘Hey, look, one of these headlines is not like the others,’” he said.

Truth1: They are implying that our "errors" are simply due to our not seeking out enough sources. That is one great big lie. We have done far better research which has revealed their lies, deceit, and trickery and it can't be hidden any longer. <<

Look in the Mirror

Be self-aware enough to realize you may also not have the best information-consumption habits, either. Practice finding other sources for a story and compare details to learn to spot inconsistencies between coverage. Then share the good stuff. You can also choose to do that instead of intervening with friends and family.

Truth1: Whether my info consumption is good or bad, it is my right to like or not, whatever I want. I don't need anyone's permission or approval. <<

“In most cases, you're better off sharing new material with family members that will resonate with them or focusing correction efforts on people with bigger platforms than Uncle Rick,” Caulfield said.

Even if some of the adults in your life struggle with what they share, they’re still people with a wealth of knowledge, experience, and love to offer. Suresh, the 15-year-old in Toronto, taught his 79-year-old student, Eufemia Bianchi, many things about her Samsung phone, but it has also been a learning experience for him.

Truth1: Imagine a 15 year old telling a 79 year old what to do. Take him or her out and give them a damn good spaking. Better yet, a Singapore Caning. <<

“I feel like one of the biggest things about this program is having a reason to talk to elders, because as teens you don’t have that many opportunities to talk to some of the smartest people in your community, and especially people who have all those life experiences,” he said. ● End of article.

Truth1 only:  What you all need to recognize is that this is a very big signal that your world is about to be turned upside down and inside out. And sooner or later, those in power are going to silence anything that does not promote the New World Order and the fake phony Jesus and the fake Aliens and the associated Devil worship.

But in particular, this movement anticipates exceptional resistance coming from the oldest generation, That being the Boomers in the USA. They are going after us, not because we are stupid or bad, but because we still have some good sense left. We knew a far more wonderful world that offers a huge contrast to the incoming evil that is being promoted now. We are deemed Public enemy no.1. We will not be as apt to go along with the evil that will be shoved on us. Yes, we will end up being the greatest generation ever.

It was the will of God, that one generation would have the benefit of seeing the complete transformation, almost overnight, so to speak. That would be why we saw so many changes take place so very fast. Rag to riches to rags again.

Next up, if no breaking news intervenes, will be the struggle everyone was grappling with in the 50s and 60s. Too many have no clue as to what really happened on a psychological level in the 50s and onward. Great prosperity is in vain if one does not take advantage exploring the internal storm that goes on in all minds, begging for understanding and resolution.
