Gosh this looks ugly as fuck lol. I always thought it looked like if you drove under it, the building would come down to crush you.


You can use some of the letters in sanctions to spell “anti-semite” so of course this is not possible.


Same university that played a significant role in rallying against the Marcos dictatorship in the 60’s-70’s. Imo the country’s best example of student activism at work. Was also the birthplace of many radical-left orgs, like the Kabataang Makabayan (Nationalist/Patriotic Youth).


University of the Philippines' Office of the Student Regent on Twitter: "NO CLASSES UNDER A MARCOS PRESIDENCY. UP STUDENTS, WALK OUT!"
Edited Update: Several of the country's biggest universities' student governments have also been calling for the suspension of classes in protest of the Marcos-Duterte presidency: - [De La Salle University](https://twitter.com/TheLaSallian/status/1523914206122508288?s=20&t=8I2HA6TsQK4P8GH_DmrKOg) (and it's sister college, [Benilde](https://www.instagram.com/p/CdXcRXRLP6b/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link)) - [Far Eastern University](https://twitter.com/FEU_CSO/status/1523799058476781569?s=20&t=8I2HA6TsQK4P8GH_DmrKOg) - [University of Santo Tomas](https://twitter.com/UST_CSC/status/1524035235712696321?s=20&t=8I2HA6TsQK4P8GH_DmrKOg) - [Ateneo de Manila University](https://twitter.com/admusanggu/status/1523823940681953280?s=20&t=8I2HA6TsQK4P8GH_DmrKOg) - [Polytechnic University of the Philippines](https://twitter.com/PUP_COCSC/status/1523685680668606466?s=20&t=8I2HA6TsQK4P8GH_DmrKOg) Many of them are organizing to protest at the Commission of Election headquarters in Manila. Not sharing photos, some protesters unmasked.

*The Canadian whistle-blower says Strategic Communication Laboratories, Cambridge Analytica’s parent company, found the Philippines an ideal target and used proxies here* > Questionable rule of law, high social media usage, and corrupt politicians. These 3 conditions, according to Cambridge Analytica (CA) whistle-blower Christopher Wylie, made countries like the Philippines a perfect place to test their techniques and technology. >“It creates an ideal petri dish type situation,” Wylie added, “where you can experiment on tactics and techniques that you wouldn’t be able to as easily in the West…and if it doesn’t work, it doesn’t matter, you won’t get caught. And if it does work, then you can then figure out how to port that into other countries."

Is he crazy charismatic and persuasive?

No, he has had virtually no mainstream media presence. Absent in nearly all debates and presidential interviews. His campaign relies solely on his family’s name and the propaganda and historical revisionism that the Marcoses have been relying on for decades. There were certain territories here that were always Marcos loyalists, particularly Ilocos Norte.

One of the biggest problem in this country has always been the amount of misinformation propagated on Facebook, Youtube and now TikTok. If you thought the situation in the US was bad, a Cambridge Analytica whistleblower confessed that the Philippines was the company’s petri dish for testing new proxies. Pair that with piss poor public education, and that’s how the son of a dictator wins.


If I speak I fear I will be in big trouble.


I feel like I was lucky enough to be exposed to radical-left content via Tumblr in my early years (however messy that site got) and never went down the alt-right rabbit hole, at least enough to absorb their ideologies. The worst it ever got was I used to watch a LOT of FilthyFrank, iDubbz, etc. and being involved in those communities was hell. I knew it was wrong but I had an almost voyeuristic satisfaction from watching how dumb it all was, like doomscrolling I guess? Back then, watching iDubbz defend his use of the N word had me thinking “Damn am I glad I am smarter than this”, but then I would just go back to watching Content Cop.

However… NEVER ask me what political opinions I had when I was 5 years old.


Neither did I till recently. Has some shitty DRM on it that is apparently hard to work around. Oh well.


YouTube member only vids - is there really no way to rip/access them without paying?
Trying to get into a show that's only on YouTube or some niche streaming service is hell. I know that, if you have an account that paid for member, you can use your info/cookies to download the vids using JDownloader or yt-dl, but again - not paying for that shite.

Anyone know a place that pirates Kanopy titles?
There's a lot of obscure stuff available on Kanopy (site that lets you stream movies if your uni offers it or you have library card) that are I find are only on Kanopy. I've been looking everywhere that I can for Filming Desire: A Journey Through Women's Cinema, but it's one of those things that you can either only find in a library not accessible to you or for 200 dollars on eBay. Anyway, any help is appreciated.

Man, this is shit you keep in therapy. Not an online forum.
