"How Disinformation Is Destroying The 5G Resistance Movement", Technocracy.news (09 April 2020)
My flagging this one up has less to do with my own reservations about 5G (which, for the record, I do not believe has anything to do with the current pandemic), than it has to do with the question: Who (if the reported analyses are correct) is promoting 5G/Covid-19 conspiracy theories on a seemingly industrial scale?
The piece at Technocracy.news reproduces a portion of a recent article at Bloomberg called "5G Virus Conspiracy Theory Fueled by Coordinated Effort" (09 April 2020) which claims that data analysts are concluding that such theories are being promoted via Twitter and Reddit, not only by individuals, but on a grander scale, suggesting that maybe "state actors" or groups of "non-state actors" are engaged in disinformation campaigns. Which prompts the questions: Why would anyone want to do that? Are we looking at a digital false-flag?
As the Technocracy.news editorial helpfully suggests, maybe this has something to do with countering criticism of 5G technology itself. But I want to add: Might it also be part of something broader? Might it be designed to further establishment narratives that characterise "conspiracy theorists" in general as dangerous and worthy of silencing on social media platforms? After all, "they" damage transmission equipment, don't they?
