EU Commission take drastic action against disinforming and decides what the truth is

The EU Commission wants to intensify the fight against disinformation with a “European Action Plan for Democracy”.
Last but not least, the coronavirus pandemic has shown how much misinformation can shape public opinion, explained Věra Jourová, Vice President of the EU Commission for Values and Transparency, on Wednesday.

The Commission now wants to counter this with an action plan.

from the Greek press

New guidelines planned

In 2018, social networks and search engines such as Facebook, Google, and Twitter agreed to the commission to sign a code of conduct against disinformation.
Now the commission wants to “go over to co-regulation”, announced Jourová. To this end, new guidelines are to be created by spring 2021 that can be enforced by national regulatory authorities.

The planned Digital Services Act would create “horizontal rules” for the platforms, explained the Commissioner.

These would then have to specifically reduce the risk of spreading disinformation.
It is not about having controversial content deleted from the right or left, but there must be clear guidelines for everyone.

Jourová advocated observing actors over a longer period of time in order to find those who spread systematic disinformation.

It must be possible, for example, to use vaccines efficiently against the coronavirus pandemic.
They have already notified Google and Facebook that “we want to promote vaccination strategies” (!!!)

The EU no longer wants to tolerate “dirty methods” as in the cases of Cambridge Analytica and the Brexit referendum (!!!)

And I mean…At the time of the translation of this article (which, by the way, has appeared on conventional media), there have been 334 comments.
Of course, I couldn’t read all of them.
I particularly liked some of them, and I’ll add them here:

It is time to accept that the EU is a thoroughbred dictatorship

… There is no more to be said.

“And above the entrance, it says: Truth sets you free (Explanation: Above the entrance of the Auschwitz concentration camp it says: “Work makes you free”)

Well finally! Then it may not be long before the headline reads: EU Commission wants to train disinformers

It is best to spend the disinformers in a place where they can better “concentrate” on the training content, ie the truth, and are not as distracted as in normal life.

Germany has a certain amount of expertise when it comes to warehouse management, transport logistics, and location selection, and above the entrance, it says: Truth sets you free”!

“Who decides what the truth is?
Quote from the article:
“Anyone who systematically spreads false information, for example about elections or Covid-19, should be pilloried and sanctioned.”

Has anyone noticed that it is nowhere mentioned WHO is allowed to tag information as “wrong”?
So I think these regulations are excellent if I am allowed to be that person. I’m really good at it too.

I’ve ALWAYS been right in my entire life until now !! Honest!!

Then I think the pillory is ok too. And when people have gotten used to the pillory, we can then also introduce the shooting and a few years later legal shooting.

Uhmmm, didn’t we have all of this before …..?”

My comment now! By the way, we are sliding from the hygiene dictatorship to the digital dictatorship.
And all of this, says the EU, just for our protection!

Instead of developing surveillance systems to eliminate other opinions, the EU should rather deal with surveillance in slaughterhouses, animal transports, and animal farms.

And finally getting active there where it is urgently needed.

My best regards to all, Venus
