...But of these sophisms and elenchs of merchandise I skill not...
Milton, Areopagitica

Except he had found the
standing sea-rock that even this last
Temptation breaks on; quieter than death but lovelier; peace
that quiets the desire even of praising it.

Jeffers, Meditation On Saviors



This exchange was produced by the same technological manipulation and deceit, by essentially the same people, and for essentially the same reason.
Where the facebook deception is covered by a kind of generalized "Oh we're just learning things!" that exchange, rather the information at its core, was the application of a treacherous gathering of knowledge.
The tools of the craven, the weapons of cowardice.
It's time people wake up to the fact that entrapment is a Satanic strategy.
It begins in superior knowing, uses the predictable, or predicted, behavior of the mark, and relies on human weakness to work. It exploits the incomplete nature of us all.
At its heart is a conversation between evil and God.
"We didn't make them do it! They did it on their own, because they're weak."
There's no virtuous application for the knowledge gained by the facebook experiment. It's only use is for deceit and manipulation. The perversion of the news, which is a perversion of the communal need for shared information.
It's animal experimentation's inevitable evolution.
People on facebook don't feel pain like we do.
Besides they hate us.
