MDP used a terror attack in the UK to differentiate the state responses to terrorism threats, between the UK and China
Regardless of what thinks of China otherwise politically, they at least take terrorism as a serious issue
Anyways what's important in this context is less the content matter itself, but how the topic was the epicenter of a brigade
Lengthier analysis and analogy for understanding it
Overall idea here is that reddit can be seen as a digital landscape where the "scenery" is made out of information.
Scenery can change over time in an organic, user driven way (analogy= snowdrifts across fields and roads)
Or scenery can be influenced with purpose and intent in an artificial way (analogy= snowdrifts being plowed out of the way by a snowplow)
When you see a parking lot where all the snow has been plowed into a few corners, you know it didn't get that way by itself. When you take at any of the largest subs on reddit and see the way some things get pushed forward and others get held back... it's the same thing.
there doesn't seem to be anything here
