Earth:Final Conflict suits this narrative.

Aliens who 'help' us (humanity) get better but they also have their own agenda and black ops going on.

Political intrigue including presidential rigging of elections and all, but the acting isn't on par with Star trek productions.

Edit: Thanks for making me think of this serie, I still have to watch the last season I just found out about :)

I filled it under 'Alternate History' for a reason.

Made me think about Red Alert 1, 2 and 3.

Also, since 'time' is't a thing and is called space-time usually, means to go back in 'time' you'ls need to have the power and reach to change the whole of existence and showhow filter the 'time-traveling stuff' out.

Star Trek Enterprise deals with the transitional period, political infighting (TNG also has a Federation infight episode as does DS9), other races with 'money', luxury. In Enterprise the family of the navigator are freighter workers etc.

Only in TOS it can be somewhat presumed to be a communist utopia.

One of the main things is, The Federation has (somehow) listened and 'fixed' the critiques on capitalism. For Americans critique on capitalism somehow equals commu/social/Marx-ism(s).

but quite literally not unless the world becomes severely depopulated and some kind of... one world government were to take control and "re-educate" the survivors into a new way of being human.

This happend in the ST universe.. There was the war with Khan, the genetic enhanced humans (TOS, TOS movie, Enterprise and the shitty reboot movie deal with this). There was a Global nuclear war and after that First contact with the Vulcans was made [See the Movie 'First Contact' from the TNG line https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Trek:_First_Contact {One of the, if not THE, best Star Trek movie}].

Step up your Trek game!

Addition: The new Star trek (the reboot films and new series) show capitalism milking dead a good idea the wrong way, but somehow people still pay.

Dr Phil Exposes Pedogate On Mainstream Media by TheWebOfSlime in TheWebOfSlime

I did read comments saying that after this episode they stopped airing Dr. Phil in the Netherlands

This is semi-true, it stopped on RTL 4 and moved to RTL 5 (4 is more of a Main channel than 5). But I can't find if they may have 'lost/skipped' this episode in the move. Dr. Phil is daytime/GOGETAJOB television as far as I know, never been a prominent evening program in The Netherlands.

Edit: On the same channels during the day are Tarotcard-phone-in-readers, teleshopping etc.

Jordan Peterson Announces Debate with Slavoj Zizek by Mnemonic in Philosophy

[–]Mnemonic[S] 2 insightful - 2 funny2 insightful - 1 funny3 insightful - 2 funny -  (0 children)

Slavoj would wreck JP on his charlatanism considering words like postmodern, marxism, capitalism and wisdom alone. But I kinda hope JP doesn't get too clamped down on his 'below-highschool level'-knowlegde about history, economics and philosophy and doesn't get anal about words like he did on his first Sam Harris podcast. I would like them to go after sniff As Peterson likes to cough, snifff call it, capitol T, truth.

Talking about Slavoj's mugshot (In all honesty he just looks like a normal person): Does Peterson have 'tv-makeup' on in this vid?

What's one thing you've done to ride out all the Google algo waves over the years? by onemananswerfactory in SEO

A warning (sort of): When saidit grows it might take up too much space/time to search the comments.

As I (And BEWARE, just me) see it, it;s about the posting to other sites mostly and when someone thinks 'hey that's for me' they will see he comments. For example having the ability to search the comments for 'the' is a waste of computational power(which includes time).

A sitemap for subs, a thing to consider, perhaps an update once a month (or every 2 weeks, that's the time limit right? maybe one week, every sunday).

EDIT: maybe: if you are on ones profile, serch only their comments for terms, take up a lot less time and might be just what people want.

The hardest part is making them look at their own traffic (increase/decrease) depending on the strategy (and depending on their branch, should you check it over the week, month or quarterly).

I am pretty out of the game, but my experience is the greyed out text under the search result changes a lot. Now this was a webshop cms (OLD) had to be altered to accommodate to that. (I believe that's a specific meta-data you can input upon specific articles).

Our search results were [Title: Article name] {greed out: specific information that was relevant to buyers (expert buyers)}

For example a stone:

[Brick: Grey stone, baked]

(URL)

{perfect for building a wall}

Depending on the content the {} values are more reasuring for Buyers before clicking and checking it out, This is my experience in a niche market in The Netherlands (not in stone).

I don't have any Idea what those meta-tags were anymore (i really believe it was some meta-thingie) that secured that greyed-out area, but I'm sure you can find that out ;)

EDIT: By {} info I mean, specific technical info for the experts, so not 'great for keeping out mexicans' but something like {bla bla bla density, morter used, something something techical stone related}. AKA, info for the nerds!

I know from almost 20 years ago you can set up your site to allow or deny their spiderbots

No, you can't. robot.txt only stop 'lawful' ones. Blocking spiders the hard way is... hard (if you click 20 posts in new tabs to read, you can be a spider to an arbitrary spider-blocker, if not I {unlawful spiderbot} will just search up to 20 articles posted every [insert certain amount of time]).

Last I did something with it, load time might be even a bigger deal in the game for 'ranked the same at meta level', comprising the pages (and therefor decreasing the load time) improved 'my' (what i worked for) web-shop above competitors. [Though it was the Dutch market and pretty niche (no, not sexual) products].

'we' opted out of the ad-words and google-search campaigns and 'our' improving of meta game and (presumably) loadtime gave us more traffick than the ads without enhancements. (A lot of people know to ignore the search-engine ads when searching)

Brute force and specific search terms in the ad-words campaigns.

It all really depends what for and the context, but yeah this, keep it all relevant!

Also SSL certificates and relevant meta-tags help.

Oh and site-compression (look it up if you're using a cms, it's hidden somewhere) and minimizing overall loading times help.

Saidit.net — Dec 19, 2018 — New Saidit Android App Released by magnora7 in SaidIt

Noticed it’s pretty prominent in the F-Droid 'newest' tab!

Also when choosing the 'use tor' setting (under Network in Settings) It stop working and throws up ‘illegal action by user’ kind of error. (I'm on the dutch version, if needed I'll check it out in english sometime). It's a red block message instead of loading any page.

Now the app does load up Orbot when openend with this setting and it loads untill a connection with the tornetwork is made before the error even loads.

There are some 'reddit' legacy mentions, one in my error, but iirc some more. (Sorry don't really take extensive notes in public transport :p)

It's about millennials because they are hitting the 30-levels of age (basically the 'old' age of having all your stuff pretty much figured out like job, house, partner and/or children.). But Gen Z (or whatever) will go through the same unless, unless the house market crashes soon and resets in reasonable waters. AKA unless 'we' fix it soon.
