Critics of Voting Machines (Proprietary With Back Doors) Aren't Nazis

Summary: The general security of the voting process (freedom from meddling, tampering, outside intervention) has gotten worse due to digitisation/digitalisation, which makes the process more easily accessible to foreign and hostile countries; the accessibility, availability, and accuracy of the voting process (and the integrity of counting) is of utmost importance to a functioning democracy, but somehow it has become a partisan issue that involves unnecessary name-calling with various new factors like fashionable distractions in a growingly-divisive society (further divided due to a lack of investigative journalism and news vacuums filled by 'disinformation farms', notably social control media)

THE VIDEO above will be harder to take out of context (than text), so I prefer to let it speak for itself. It follows many rants about this misleading narrative (as mentioned in IRC over the years) wherein people who reject bad voting machines are like Holocaust deniers. It got a lot worse this past year.

"This is unfair. This is disingenuous."Over the years we wrote numerous articles about the problem with proprietary, usually Windows-based, voting machines. But it seems risky to talk about this subject in 2022 because of the stigma spread by the media. "Election Denial" [1] is what the Bill Gates-bribed Pro Publica has just collectively called rejection of back-doored Windows-based voting machines. On the same day (yesterday) we saw "Electoral Denialism" and "Big Lie Conspiracy" in headlines [2,3]. Those are sites that are not "MSM".

This is unfair. This is disingenuous. I explain some of the context in the video above.

"Our associate notes that "unfortunately that topic is one which is banned from Twitter and other social control media and only pits cover it -- so far" (because now the safety of voting machines is considered a partisan issue)."An associate has suggested adding this reference to "The Cyber War on America's Elections," noting that the "US is ignoring the 'long' game". There are already some old lessons from Estonia (facing Russian aggression, still) and some recent stories. "Man buys Michigan voting machine off EBay. The Secretary of State has questions," says this one headline. Our associate notes that "unfortunately that topic is one which is banned from Twitter and other social control media and only pits cover it -- so far" (because now the safety of voting machines is considered a partisan issue).

What's very frustrating to me personally is seeing left-leaning sites (that I generally do trust) trying to associate hand-counting votes (which is the right thing to do) with "Big Lie Conspiracy". What have we sunk to?
