Emily Vander Nagel, New Hampshire, John Red Bull discussed on Free Talk Live
You enough is unique. If I'm not mistaken, so then is unique to the frame or the right the vehicle somewhere as the license plate. Is something that you have to do in your states. But as far as like verification and who owns the car, and you know all of the data behind it, right? They both collect redundant information. Well, so Is the only thing that the government claims that you have to have a driver's I mean, I was called the wrong thing. License plate for it's the only thing they claim it's for is like identification or So I I'm trying to remember it's been a while since I looked into the origins of the license plate, you know, I know, but it's It's basically it's irrelevant. I don't know the truth behind it, but I think that effectively the argument that they've been using for a while is it has to do with stolen cars, right? It's just a way for them to generate more revenue. Why do you Why do your license plates expired? Yeah, There's no reason for your life. If you haven't moved out of state if you have it, you know what I mean? There's no reason for you have to pay to get with a little sticker. That's the most expensive sticker any of us by I mean, yeah, and it's it's it's And unfortunately, do all sorts of other things like here in New Hampshire, Uh, when you register your vehicle, you have to pass an inspection every year. So you have to take your vehicle into a mechanic somewhere. Now, If the mechanic is unscrupulous, they're going to do things like Oh, hey, By the way, I noticed this and and you also need to get this done. And if you don't Well, your car is going to fail inspection. So now you get strong armed as it were. Into paying for some repairs that you maybe didn't need before, just so that you can get the expensive sticker. And in the meantime, you're still allowed to drive unsafe vehicles in state of New Hampshire. I don't know if this isn't really the government's fault. But last year I went to go get my license renewed and I just made it. I went to the velveteen or whatever, Raveling whatever you call it. Place where they had fixed cars. The velveteen oil change Velveteen Valvoline. They actually don't fix cars there. Well, whatever. I went there and got, uh, inspections section I made it minutes. Um, like I almost didn't make it in time to the inspection place. I went in there. And those breaking Valvoline people put the wrong date on They put it as if it had happened tomorrow. So the lady was like, I can't. I can't do this and I was like I just came from there. You can call them She's like, doesn't matter. It's the wrong paperwork. So I had to come and do the next day. Oh my God was so mad Slam alright, so getting back to Australia and their I d requirements. For social media like this is just so I can't tell you how. Mm. This makes me feel it's it. It burns a little on the inside the the stupid it burns. How are they going to enforce this? And does that mean if if some if a social media platform does not comply with Australian law, are they going to block that Social media platform? There's further commentary, including Emily Vander Nagel, who says hello. It's Me, a social media researcher who has argued time and time again that it is not a good idea to force people to submit I d to use social media, she wrote on Twitter. It won't solve harassment. It will only further harm already vulnerable groups do not do this. Oh, yeah, it's going to solve harassment, like the government needs to do that. If you're so concerned about harassment, here's Here's the solution for this problem. It's a free market solution. You don't need a government to implement it. Set up a social media platform. Wherever B s to verify their I D. And if people want to use it, they can use it And they won't get her ass because you know who the who the harasser is, and you can ban them. However, if people do not like to don't like that platform, they can use a non I d social Media platform. Well, MF Furberg. Let's mark Instead of soccer. Um, he did a thing. I guess it's probably been 89 years ago or so with Facebook, where they put an algorithm out across Facebook in order to attempt in their words in order to attempt to identify Will say people who were not using their authentic self on Facebook. They're regular name. You know that kind of thing. And what they did, Of course, was they ended up turning off a whole bunch of people's accounts that were legitimate people, whether or not they were using a nickname. They turned off a whole bunch of, uh, I'll call them drag Queens who use differently right? And they also turned off a bunch of Sioux Indian. Right? Because they have names like you know, John Red Bull, right? And the algorithm identified that red bow as like That's a fake name, right? You know, And so they turn a bunch of people off. They also turned.
