Abandon — or at Least Supplement — Scribd as a Document-Sharing Platform
by Andrew Hamilton
SHOULD WHITES OPPOSED to policies of genocide, anti-White racism, and totalitarianism utilize Scribd as their sole free document-sharing platform? Several individuals and organizations do so. They should reconsider this decision, or at least post publicly accessible, printable, downloadable documents elsewhere at the same time.
Scribd is an e-book and e-document Internet subscription platform. Paying users can upload material and read restricted content. The company contracts with many large book and periodical publishers to distribute digital content for a fee.
Users are permitted to post documents that the public can view for free. However, the ability to copy, print, or download and save such files is artificially disabled by the corporation unless readers also subscribe or provide the firm with private information about themselves in exchange for limited access to just the free material. In addition, free documents are “de-prioritized” in search results, making them artificially difficult to find.
American Renaissance, a small pro-White publisher, is an example of an organization that uses Scribd. It recently filed a lawsuit in San Francisco against Twitter, Inc. (revenue: $2.5 billion) for censoring its organizational account and the account of its founder and editor, Jared Taylor. (“Jared Taylor and American Renaissance Banned from Twitter,” December 18, 2017)
Jewish-corporate Internet censorship represents a genuine social emergency. (See Andrew Hamilton, “Paul Nehlen’s Proposed ‘Shall Not Censor’ Legislation.”) In this instance, American Renaissance made its legal complaint available to the public, which is commendable, but only did so on Scribd.
Another Scribd customer is the Foundation for the Marketplace of Ideas (FMI), a foundation that educates the public about constitutional liberties. FMI has gone to great trouble obtaining and posting numerous documents online, many acquired through the Freedom of Information Act, but some legal filings as well. It, too, exclusively uses Scribd to share this hard-to-obtain information with the public.
But Scribd is not ideal for this purpose.
To begin with, this kind of information, admittedly important, will be ignored by most people even when it is freely and readily accessible, which on Scribd it is not. Leaving aside evil people paid to collect, index, and analyze such information — designated Jews, Leftists, and government apparatchiks — you are at best targeting 1%-2% of the audience. That’s too bad, but it is this minority you must try to reach. As potential change agents they are probably more important than the 98% anyway.
In 2008, now-political prisoner Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, wrote: “‘[S]uch is the irresistible nature of truth,’ [Thomas] Paine declared, ‘that all it asks, and all it wants, is the liberty of appearing.’ Thomas Paine, author of Common Sense and The Rights of Man was wrong.” (Julian Assange, “The Hidden Curse of Thomas Paine,” April 29, 2008, explaining that even individual bloggers do not automatically seek out, utilize, or publicize valuable material — never mind the controlled media.)
In an uphill battle you must eliminate as many unnecessary barriers to access as possible. Yet, as noted above, Scribd erects them by making it impossible for the public to print, download, or save ostensibly free documents without registration. Personal data obtained in this fashion is economically and politically valuable to the company, and probably to a larger group as well.
Scribd is a privately-owned, for-profit Web site located in San Francisco and bankrolled by wealthy venture capitalists. The site hosts tens of millions of documents. It was founded in 2007 by its current top executives Trip Adler, Jared Friedman, and Tikhon Bernstam — doubtless all multimillionaires by now. Scribd will likely be sold to a larger firm, probably Jewish, in the future, thereby increasing the wealth of its founders even more.
Though not financially big by Silicon Valley standards, Scribd is in no way comparable to the tiny Web sites and blogs run by Gentiles reaching miniscule audiences that invariably hang by a thread on enemy-controlled platforms. These sites can be erased from the Internet by powerful haters at any time.
Scribd has employees from over twenty countries, 100 million-plus unique visitors per month, and over 700,000 paid subscribers.
I suppose I should also highlight the obvious. Scribd is anti-White.
9.4 post, upload, or distribute any User Comments or other content that is . . . hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or otherwise inappropriate . . .
Of course, hate speech and harassment — vicious harassment — are not only allowed, but welcomed and encouraged by every Silicon Valley corporation and tech oligarch without exception. The only requirement is that they be Politically Correct and anti-White.
Hate speech and racism are more prevalent in contemporary Jewish society than they ever were in White ones. The racial, religious, and political speech of Whites in the past looks sickeningly pusillanimous compared to the raw, disgusting anti-White, anti-male, anti-heterosexual, anti-family, anti-freedom, and anti-Christian sewage and ceaseless harassment that vomits from the media of mass communications in an unending torrent every single minute of every day.
Utilize Scribd if it suits your purpose, but consider broadening your reach by making hard-to-obtain material available simultaneously on your own Web site and perhaps a neutral platform as well (if there are any) in printable, downloadable format with no signup, registration, or other artificial barriers that wall off facts while extending the economic and psychological reach of inherently totalitarian, Politically Correct, anti-White platforms like Scribd.
You’ll pick up at least a few additional readers you’re missing now, one or two of whom might actually make a difference.
