Shoshana Zuboff: Facebook’s Oversight Board Is Not Enough. The Government Has to Regulate Big Tech May 06, 2021
“He [M.Z.] showed that he was willing to do just about anything to appease Trump … to keep regulation at bay,” Zuboff says.
A.G. : Your reaction to the Facebook-appointed board’s decision?
SHOSHANA ZUBOFF: "Well, you know, it looks like this so-called Oversight Board, which of course, everyone should understand, was set up by Mr. Zuckerberg with a $130 million endowment and really is a device to help keep him free of public law, help keep him free of regulation. + And in appeasing Trump, all that Zuckerberg really had to do was not intervene in his economic machine, surveillance capitalism, which is programmed, engineered to maximize engagement and data extraction by circulating and amplifying what turns out to be the most inflammatory, the most bizarre, the most dangerous, the most threatening, the craziest content. So, by keeping Trump going, he satisfied his political goals, and he also satisfied his economic goals."
++"Now, as we saw yesterday, very, very quickly, Trump is back on his microphone — not on Facebook, not on Twitter, but he’s got plenty of other outlets. And what was the first thing he started to do? Threaten Zuckerberg with regulation. Threaten Zuckerberg with Republican retaliation. Right? So, now we are back in the political arena. And this means that the Biden administration, that team, is going to have to take a stand, because the thing that’s going to keep Mr. Trump off Facebook and save American democracy is going to be a situation where Mr. Zuckerberg fears the Democrats as much as he fears the Republicans. And so far that has not been the case. So, we are now back into a political power match. And that’s going to really change the dynamics of these next few months."
+++ "So, we’re not China, but instead we’ve allowed these private companies to create a different kind of surveillance state in our surveillance society in America and in the West that operates under private capital."

Shoshana Zuboff: We Can Have Facebook or Democracy in the Age of Surveillance Capitalism. Not Both. Part II
You recently wrote a piece for The New York Times titled “The Coup We Are Not Talking About.” You write, “We can have democracy, or we can have a surveillance society, but we cannot have both." A.G. "Explain."
SHOSHANA ZUBOFF: Well, as I began to discuss before, these internet companies, that, you know, began as little startups, with really smart folks running them, learned early on that the way they could finally monetize their very interesting new services was to secretly extract behavioral data from human behavior from anywhere they could find it online. And later, you know, they gave us little pocket computers called smartphones, so we could go out into the world, and that way, they could get a lot more data.And what they learned was that by extracting predictive information from all this data that they could mine from, from our activity, they could analyze it, they could predict our future behavior. That became the product that they could sell to advertisers to target who is most likely to click on their ads and click through to the product or the service and whatever. That was the foundation of targeted online advertising.Now, this whole process of, you know, unilaterally invading our experience, turning it into data, extraordinarily, then claiming those data as their private property for manufacture and for sales, this has turned into a dominant economic paradigm. It’s not only the tech behemoths. It’s the whole tech sector. It’s every single app. Every app now is designed to maximize data collection from you, from your activity, from your behavior. And, of course, it cuts across every industry now.

In Part 2 of our conversation with Shoshana Zuboff, author of “The Age of Surveillance Capitalism,” we discuss the Facebook Oversight Board, the role of private data brokers selling private information collected on internet users to the U.S. government and others, and why she has argued, “We can have democracy, or we can have a surveillance society, but we cannot have both.” TranscriptThis is a rush transcript.

And, of course, it cuts across every industry now.
So, what’s happened is, in these last 20 years, Amy, nobody wants to admit it, but the fact is what we have seen is the wholesale destruction of privacy in the last 20 years. There is no more privacy. And concomitant to that, you know, if you look at a company like Google or you look at a company like Facebook, these folks have accrued extraordinary power. A man like Mr. Zuckerberg, who has absolute control over Facebook, now essentially has absolute control over critical communications infrastructure that involves billions of people. And there is no countervailing force, no countervailing power, when it comes to Mr. Zuckerberg and his decision rights, just as was the case, you know, when we were fighting John D. Rockefeller more than a century ago.So, we are in a crazy situation. And when you ask the question, “How did we get here? How did these companies — you know, how did we allow them to develop so much power over the central aspects of our society?” the answer is that democracy did nothing. Democracy failed to intervene. Democracy was essentially either feeding its own need for human-generated data, that it couldn’t collect under the Constitution and under the public laws of our country, so it relied on these companies to collect it instead, and, you know, in other respects, our lawmakers were asleep at the switch and allowed this power to grow unaccountably, totalistically, before they realized the threat it was to their own power, because the long game here for surveillance capitalism is to substitute computational governance, governance by algorithms that they control for the sake of their commercial objectives, to substitute that for democratic governance. That is the long game. And there is evidence of that everywhere we look.

Trong tuyên bố hôm 6/5, cựu Tổng thống nói rằng nếu ông Pence khi đó chuyển lại kết quả phiếu [Đại cử tri] cho cơ quan lập pháp của các bang chiến trường quyết định, đồng thời với việc Cheney và McConnell đã làm nhiều hơn nữa, thì “chúng ta sẽ có một kết quả tổng thống khác xa, và đất nước của chúng ta sẽ không biến thành một cơn ác mộng xã hội chủ nghĩa!
“Đừng bao giờ bỏ cuộc!" - ông Trump nói.

La KCM(CDC) Ne Mensogis Kiel Konservativuloj Asertas
La CDC Ne Mensogis Kiel Konservativuloj Asertas Virusa Facebook-poŝto dividita pli ol 5.300 fojojn asertas, ke la Centroj por Malsankontrolo kaj Preventado (CDC) "kviete ĝisdatigis" sian morton de koronavirusa viruso por montri, ke nur 9.210 homoj "efektive mortis" pro COVID-19.
Verdikto: Falsa La afiŝo miskomprenas COVID-19-komorbidecajn datumojn. D-ro Robert Anderson, la ĉefo pri statistikoj pri morteco ĉe la Nacia Centro pri Sanaj Statistikoj, diris, ke COVID-19 estas listigita kiel la suba kaŭzo de morto en 92 procento de ĉiuj mortoj, kiuj mencias COVID-19, inkluzive tiujn kun komorbidecoj.
Fakta Kontrolo: Sociaj amaskomunikiloj-platformoj estas plenaj de misinformado pri statistikoj pri morto de koronaviruso. Ĉi tiu speciala Facebook-afiŝo asertas, ke la CDC "senbrue" ĝisdatigis siajn nombrojn por montri, ke nur 6 procentoj de homoj listigitaj kiel koronavirusaj mortoj "efektive mortis" pro la malsano.
"Ĉi-semajne CDC kviete ĝisdatigis la Covid-nombron por konfesi, ke nur 6% de ĉiuj 153.504 mortoj registritaj efektive mortis pro Covid," legas la virusa poŝto. "Tio estas 9 210 mortoj. Vidu tabelon 3 en la suba ligilo. " (RILATA: Viralaj Bildaj Asertoj Por Montri CDC-Dokumenton Pri Vizaĝaj Maskoj) La uzanto de Facebook provizas ligon al la retejo de CDC, kiu montras tabelon pri "sanstatoj kaj kontribuantaj kaŭzoj menciitaj kune kun mortoj kun koronvirusa malsano 2019 (COVID-19)." Tamen la uzanto ŝajnas misinterpreti la tabelon.
Dum 6 procentoj de mortoj inkluzivitaj en la statistikoj havis COVID-19 kiel la sola kaŭzo listigita sur la mortatesto, tio ne signifas ke nur 6 procentoj de la raportitaj homoj "efektive mortis" pro la malsano. La aliaj mortoj en la tabelo havis unu aŭ plurajn komfortojn listigitajn kiel kontribuanta kondiĉo sur la morta atesto, laŭ la CDC. Komforteco signifas, ke unu aŭ pluraj kondiĉoj okazas ĉe paciento samtempe.
"La suba kaŭzo de morto estas la kondiĉo, kiu komencis la ĉenon de eventoj, kiuj finfine kaŭzis la morton de la persono," Anderson diris al Check Your Fact en retpoŝto. "En 92% de ĉiuj mortoj, kiuj mencias COVID-19, COVID-19 estas listigita kiel la suba kaŭzo de morto."
La CDC longe diris, ke maljunuloj kaj homoj kun iuj subaj malsanoj kiel kancero, obezeco aŭ kronika rena malsano, inter aliaj, havas pli grandan riskon por severa malsano de COVID-19. Anderson rimarkis, ke la 94-procenta cifero povas inkluzivi kronikajn malsanojn, kaj ankaŭ aliajn kondiĉojn, kiuj "okazis kiel rezulto de COVID-19, kiel pulminflamo aŭ spira fiasko."
Prezidanto Donald Trump retweetis afiŝon farantan la falsan aserton dum la semajnfino, montras la arkivo de liaj forigitaj tweets de ProPublica. Twitter poste forigis la tweet, kiun li retweetis, kaj anstataŭigis ĝin per mesaĝo, kiu diras: "Ĉi tiu Tweet ne plu estas havebla, ĉar ĝi malobservis la Twitter-Regulojn", laŭ CNN.
