An Ode To The Amazonian Testicle

It is easy to not trust our media or its government. It is easy, when cases such as governmental employees known to be pedophiles are at liberty to startup a side business training members of the public to live alongside psychopaths, and the media does nothing to draw correlations.

Writing for Vox, keeping in mind that paid journalism essentially means people with money seeing value in hiring reporters whose stories may profit them or weaken their competition or both, Kaitlyn Tiffany reports on a recent study from persons at Georgetown University and New York University which revealed more Americans trust the almighty Amazon corporation than either the media or their government. Amazon, headed by the world’s publicly-known richest man, who just lost his wife over dick pictures sent to someone who was not his wife. The company whose bottom-feeder employees famously have been made to urinate into soda bottles so as to increase productivity times, with paramedic vans perpetually parked outside their numerous distribution centers due to the commonality of on the job injuries, and all while paying less in federal taxes than you yourself reading this.

To show the wisdom of the American peoples, an uncredited article from ENM News describes the disturbing and rather meta plight of Amazon selling inauthentic copies of Orwellian books, ranging from misspellings to full-on rewrites. Three passages in particular sum up the issue at hand as well as offering a glimpse at the larger tragedy.

The company added that machine learning and artificial intelligence were ineffective when there is no single source of truth from which the model can learn.

Of course there is a single truth, as there is to all things. Leaving windows open for exceptions to rules on the other hand, and plausible deniability, is where the fun begins. Yet despite this, the cult of tech lingers with the fervency of its chosen beliefs.

“During most of human existence, facts have been hard to pin down and most of knowledge was oral history, rumor and received wisdom,” said Scott Brown, a prominent California bookseller. “We have spent our whole lives in a fact-based world and while that seems how things ought to be, it may prove to have been a temporary aberration.”

A solipsistic idea to be so sure, although the media, its government and corporate America all seem hellbent on seeing this through.

“The marketplace of ideas is now at risk for serious if not irreparable damage because of the unprecedented dominance of a very small number of technology platforms,” the report concluded.

While anyone and everyone possesses the basic human rights to boycott, divest and sanction anything and everything they damn well care to, based on the continued success of Amazon, the public would evidently prefer to hide behind the comfort of its security blanket, ordered online by credit and delivered by way of drone. Actions of compliance and complicity which present neither truth or justice, but certainly the American way.
