Why are techies leftwing?

For a start, ‘techies’ as such aren’t, just the mega-successful such as Jobs and Dorsey. I know a few techies and it’s probably fair to say they’re more libertarian as a rule, with rightwing stances on many issues.

Monopolists like Google, Twitter, Facebook and so on, almost exclusively – well actually, exclusively – are enforcers of leftwing ideology.

Why?

For an industry once known for competition, the level of concentration is remarkable. Google controls nearly 90 percent of search advertising, Facebook almost 80 percent of mobile social traffic, and Amazon about 75 percent of US e-book sales, and, perhaps most importantly, nearly 40 percent of the world’s “cloud business.”

Together, Google and Apple control more than 95 percent of operating software for mobile devices, while Microsoft still accounts for more than 80 percent of the software that runs personal computers around the world.

The Daily Caller notes:

YouTube empowers the third-party organizations — “Trusted Flaggers” — to help police content on the platform by mass flagging content and working closely with engineers who design YouTube’s algorithms.

One of those third-party groups is left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), The Daily Caller revealed in February. The SPLC is known for smearing pedestrian conservative organizations as “hate groups.”

The vast majority of YouTube’s “Trusted Flaggers” remain unknown to the public, hidden behind confidentiality agreements.

All of those are good reasons but what of venture capital?  Perhaps that should be explored and might it be the case that they themselves are not leftwing but do not wish to offend the hegemony?  The hegemony at this time is leftwing and aggressive – look at Media Matters, Antifa, Hate not Hope – these are actively funded to do as they are doing, knowing that focused bullying with clout is a most effective tool.

Actually, they are leftwing, e.g. the Kochs, Soros etc.but why?  If these people are so committed to fee enterprise, how does that align with censorship and monopoly?

In politics, there’s this group Momentum and it’s more of the same – actively removing standard pollies, e.g. Old Labour, which is traditionally for Onethink anyway so they really have no leg to stand on, they retain control, e.g. of Corbyn, even though he is unelectable in his own right.

But the Machine can stir up the land in so many ways that he ends up in power.  The would-be-smart say well that’s good, people get a dose of him and will react to the whole corrupt, cankerous mess – but that’s naive.

Look at the numbers, largely through corruption at the ballot box but also because people would rather believe the sugarcoated untruth than the hard facts, plus the indoctrination of youth proceeding at breakneck speed in every non-independent school without exception – so these monsters behind the whole thing have the psychology down pat, except for human quirkiness which they attempt to eliminate through recruiting policies:

How can the disorganised fight that?

Well there are occasional victories, but minor ones in the firmament.  Arron and co are doing a good job infiltrating the Tories, deselecting MPs, they’re at least au fait to that extent on how politics works.  Also observe Gavin Williamson behind Boris.  All these people play hardball behind the scenes.

When all key players are already bought and funded, also controlled by skeletons in the cupboard, many which are created at ‘Washington Parties’, then it’s far easier to implement the next step.

Yes but why?

Yes, we’ve identified the tools, the selection processes, who gets funded and who doesn’t – but why for evil ends, not for noble ends?  If you atribute it to the ancient god v Mammon, then Mammon seems to have the upper hand, no?

I say not ultimately – look at the pushback, the kickback going on now from the likes of us strange bedfellows all, disparate allies from all walks and for Christians, there is always the Return.

The global enslavement is certainly opposed by enough people to stave off 1984, but so piecemeal and slowly we do succumb as a civilisation.

    I put it down to most of them being young and the product of modern universities and colleges. You can see it in the comments on tech sites, it shows up in the way that anything that doesn’t follow the left anti Trump agenda gets torn down.

    It has got to a state where the universities and colleges need to be closed down.

    Jobs and Dorsey are not techies.

    All large companies and government are dominated by leftwing ideology now. If you are normal in any way you learn to keep your mouth shut, the office is littered with noisy informers who like nothing more than an opportunity to ruin another’s career.

    I hear that Apple; Google; Paypal; Facebook; Patreon; Twitter and You Tube are all within 20 miles of each other in Silicon Valley

    If these people are so committed to free enterprise, how does that align with censorship and monopoly?

    I’ll take a wild guess and say that capitalists like monopoly because they always have liked monopoly. And that they like censorship and social control because they don’t like having awkward questions asked about their monopolistic business practices?

    Gee, you don’t suppose these people are actually right-wingers who want to use the power of the state to protect their own business interests do you? That maybe when they pretend to be left-wing they’re actually lying?

    And you don’t suppose that these antifascist thugs like Antifa are actually just the tools of right-wing corporate interests? Maybe the fact that they’re funded by the corporate sector could be a clue to which side they’re actually on?

    And you don’t suppose that the left-wing push for open borders is actually a right-wing push? That it’s all about keeping wages down, keeping workers demoralised and divided and importing more and more consumers. You don’t suppose the fact that the only people who actually benefit from open borders are capitalists could be a clue that it’s a right-wing agenda?

      Making the usual error with this lefty word ‘Capitalists’. Far more useful to use is ‘crony capitalists’ but if one explores them, the same hand is on them as is on the Marxists. This blog has been mentioning Them since its inception.

      If you were to employ a Christian concept, you could see it as God v Mammon. When does selling a loaf which cost 50p to bake at 75p equate to Peabody [JPM antecedent] colluding with govt. to induce a grain crisis in 1857?

      The alternative – the dead hand of communism, as in the USSR, is just another portal to slavery and penury.

      There is always a politburo, always a deep state behind enabling, enabling.
