The Story Behind The "Jesus in the snow" Picture

"The story that is told about this picture is of a Chinese photographer, who was deeply troubled religiously. He took a picture of the melting snow with black earth showing through. When he developed it he was amazed to see in it the face of Jesus full of tenderness and love, and he became a believer.

It may take you a long time to see the face, but that difficulty is perhaps a symbol of the effort that must be made to find Him in our world. Once found, however, as in the picture, He dominates the scene and one wonders how it was possible to miss Him."

#1984 <•><•>

George Orwell’s ‘1984’ Tops Amazon’s Best-Seller List

We’re living through an era in which novelist George Orwell’s book “1984” seems less like fiction and more like...

>The book’s protagonist, Winston Smith, a member of the “Outer Party” and an official with the ironically named “Ministry of Truth,” which wields control over the flow of information, is tasked with rewriting newspaper stories so the narrative always matches up with the leading Party’s agenda. Workers are led to believe they’re correcting misquotes. In reality, however, they are replacing fact with fiction presented as valid information.

Mozilla's new proposal encourages platforms to "Turn on by default the tools to amplify factual voices over disinformation.", through opaque and black-box AI systems.

Seeing as Mozilla's mission is to "ensure the internet remains a public resource that is open and accessible to all.", doesn't that seem a little backwards?

I think we can all say Mozilla has become a political organisation, instead of focusing on what their users want: a browser.

People are now uninstalling Firefox in protest, and I don't blame them.

Consider replacing Firefox with Ungoogled Chromium and Bromite. Mozilla may turn thr technology outlined in their blog post on people using Firefox, and I won't stand for it.

I think we have to say 'Enough is enough,' when this 'privacy-focused' browser includes 3 closed-source tracking SDK's by default. If you've enabled Telemetry to support Mozilla, you're also supporting Google Firebase Analytics, Adjust and Leanplum.

After opening an issue (github.com/mozilla-mobile/feni) about this, and receiving major support from the community, Mozilla essentially stated that these tracking SDK's will not be removed from their browser.

If you're using Firefox: you don't have to stand for this. Mozilla are making a mockery of privacy advocates who recommend this 'grassroots pro-privacy' browser.

Playing right into Google's hands. Now I can see why people use #Bromite and #Chromium.

British Judge Rules Julian Assange Cannot be Extradited to the United States

>It is ironic that a President Trump who has been victim of so much deep state meddling has done the deep state’s bidding when it comes to Assange and Wikileaks. President Trump should preempt the inevitable US show trial of Assange by granting the journalist blanket pardon under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. - Ron Paul
