How do YouTubers get views and why it’s Political
I have never poured so much attention and time into understanding politics and economics, only to walk away with disappointment again and again. I’m not frustrated or angry, I’m just really bored. Year after year it’s the same bullshit. ‘This year is going to be different folks, but still much of the same’. There is nobody on this planet I could call a hero or a leader. The truth is that nobody is a hero, this world doesn’t need heroes, they’ve either been killed or shunned by a blah-blah-blah establishment.
The truth is nobody watches the news, nobody is politically active and your vote isn’t a privilege or a right, it’s a novelty. When it comes to anything to do with politics, it’s all an elaborate show. You see, deep down we care for a few minutes but not enough to watch hours of coverage. The media seems to care more about these issues than we do, yet they hardly cover what we want to see.
That’s when I go, hmmmm…
I’ve got a quick case study before I get into the good stuff. YouTubers fake views. Here’s a quick tip on knowing how they do it:
1. Click on a video
2. Find a relevant URL part
3. Google this
4. Find a dodgy website this has been posted on, e.g.
All YouTubers do this to artificially inflate their views. Why haven’t YouTube done something about this? Because they would lose their captive audience, we would no longer trust them, views would go down into the thousands and it would make us question everything.
Is this real? How would we know. It could be 42??
The most important point, YouTube is a powerful platform for communication in the millions, people can’t just be allowed to post what they want to post. Someone with intelligent and rational opinions is a dangerous person, because they would tackle questions about taxation or rigged elections. Unlike some of the idiot reporters or media, ahem. Maybe musicians could exceed the mainstream charts, homemade movies might gain more traction than a blockbuster.
Therefore, YouTube has to exist and hold a monopoly on video sharing, but it also has to be closely monitored. So are all your favourite sites, Facebook, Reddit, Tumblr and Twitter. We technically have consumer choice, but the invisible hand decides which sites or apps are going to succeed. If there are 7 billion people on this planet, why do we only have a few popular websites?
Government is the same. What if the media and government are working hand in hand to inflate or exaggerate politics more than it is. Fuck the system, go anarchy whoop whoop.
