What does it mean, when one can’t find news?

The meaning of apparent silence, when all hell is breaking loose.

Imagine writing thousands of articles and comments, including solutions, based on PhD level research, over several years, corresponding with thousands of people, warning and lamenting a broken system of modern slavery, where a primary instrument of that slavery, is the collective of profit driven platforms, a feature of which is to suppress information exposing it.

Then one weekend, on some of the more open media channels, you see America, the seat of the broken system, burning from coast to coast in civil unrest.

And you look at your stats of recent activity, and you see… zero.

You look in your feed for relevant stories and see… none.

You do a search for “Unrest”, expecting to find some recent comments and find… nothing.

Isn’t this system just… perfect?
