In short:

No matter how long it takes, Ukraine will be free. [...] That goal cannot shift, but in the end, it is still not in America’s best interest to plunge into an all-out war with Russia, even if a negotiated peace may require Ukraine to make some hard decisions. [...] Confronting this reality may be painful, but it is not appeasement. This is what governments are duty bound to do, not chase after an illusory “win.”

Namely, that it is not merely a social media platform or social networking platform, but a social engineering platform, specifically in that Twitter Inc. EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVELY seeks to influence users to focus on particular political and politicized topics, and to think in certain ways (whether it's ONE way, or in terms of there being two clear-cut "sides" to an issue) about it. The dripping political bias of what shows at any given moment in the "Trending" sidebar is one of the most prominent pieces of evidence of that.

Yes, I understand that one response you have to this is along the lines of "Look, anyone who hasn't known since about 2012, a year BEFORE the Snwdn disclosures, that Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and the others are social engineering operations is a fucking idiot."

But he's really getting the point across in a big way, is he not? It similar to how Trump in 2016 was continually saying that Washington politicians were beholden "to the donors, the lobbyists, and the special interests." Yes, I think most voters would already say, even 20 years before then that "politicians are corrupt," but this impresses that fact in a much stronger way--a way that leads to stronger action FROM the people, the general public.

Social engineering is a top-down effort to influence particular attitudes and social behaviors on a large scale—most often undertaken by governments, but also carried out by media, academia or private groups—in order to produce desired characteristics in a target population.

They misspelled "fueled." Does CNN even know how to use spellcheck?

There were 24 major U.S. car companies in the 1950s; now, only 7 of these remain (some of these shut down in the past 20 years, namely Plymouth, Pontiac, Oldsmobile, and Mercury):

It's as bullshit as when the MSM said "unnamed Trump administration officials" or "anonymous sources close to the president."

But the reason that so many people have become criminal, or MORE criminal, since 2020 is because they know the police won't do shit. In 2019, those people doing that stuff now had morals just as low, but now they, the looters, rioters, and vandals we've seen in so many videos, feel very much emboldened to ACT on it: formerly they thought, "I wish I could just take this merchandise," but now it's "I'm GONNA take it!" as they know that the police won't chase them and punish them, even when the crime is caught on full-color camera!
