I would like to see deeper dives into the topics like this and find every corner where they hide, but e-celebs will never allow us to do that. If they get close to truth, they will be blackmailed or threatened to stop. As far as alternates, there are some, but any alternate being led by e-celebs will end up the same. It is similar to how liberal people flee the cities they created that oppress themselves, and the places they flee to they feel compelled to alter to match the places they flee.>>329497
Sorry for seeming black pilled. I want to see Youtube burn, but these aren't the people to do it. People don't bite the hands that feed them without knowing they have another hand elsewhere. I don't believe e-celebs will ever do anything but ask for monetization, which this is a natural extension of. Yes, he was censored, but the response is due to the fact his video is no longer there and earning money or viewers that will continue to watch his content, increasing the chances of additional revenue.
They will not risk derailing the train because they are a passenger. The threats to end Youtube with the pedo label will end when he is satisfied with drama, a return of his video, and a return to monetization. Once this has been accomplished, it will be mission complete for the e-celeb. They will continue to make content, curse the platform they use, and continue to accept revenue. Again, nothing inherently wrong with that, but it isn't someone that has the goal to take down the system.
Meanwhile, what will be gained from the drama? The only positive to the average person is an increased awareness, but this is temporary. As I stated before, they have already had a scandal that was much worse than a deletion. You can easily claim that the deletion was in error or because of an employee that does not represent the company, meanwhile the video in the past was promoted by Youtube and was not removed, a much larger approval by the company as a whole. Despite the larger problem, nothing happened, and now that some e-celebs are upset, we are supposed to believe they will do more with less to work with?
I simply can't believe any popular movement that is unwilling to sacrifice for the goal. The people he reached out to were all celebrities. There are no proposed actions other than make Twitter trend to have Youtube look at the celebrities. The goal he is asking for is for Youtube to choose a side, which he set up as his content or censorship of it, which he equated to being supporting pedos, when they have already shown they have and will, and a victory will be called when the e-celebs have made content, money, and regain the videos they lost.
There is no sacrifice being shown to be on the line. There is no damage that is being risked on the company. There are no consequences. If he doesn't get his way, will any other the celebrities leave? Even if so, which is unlikely, will they become something other than a celebrity, giving up on the majority of their monetization to selflessly promote a message and push for the punishment of the people in control? No, they will go to an alternative if they do leave, in which they will push for more funding with the sob story, and proceed to do nothing more.
So, we need to figure out a better solution to the problem. First, don't support e-celebs. You can use their content to help inform yourself and others, but do not believe in them. Without seeing more than what they present to you, you cannot know who they are. Second, you need to increase the research outside what is widely talked about and known. The research for the e-celeb to make the content have to be open and likely free to access, meaning there is more information out there than they even have presented. Finally, connect to actual people to do something about these things. The e-celeb will always lead people to a pocket to put cash into. Normal people will lead to action.
Again, I tend to rant too much. In summary: e-celebs have nothing to lose, they are doing this in their own interests, and no matter how mad people will get, they will forget when they feel like they have won when the e-celeb has declared a personal victory, just like last time, we have to do the work ourselves
