Information is data which is
- and preferably concise.
“Raw data” is processed to transform it into information.
The processes typically include
- validation / verification
Technical papers are subject to reviews.
On the contrary, there are
- fake news
- deep fake videos
- unreliable reports
which can spread like viruses on the Internet and the Social Media.
Red Ribbon Campaigns are not effective against authorities who do not treasure Metta (Unbounded love), Karuna (Compassion) and Mudita (Altruistic Joy).
Civil Disobedience Movement (CDM) is much more effective, but it requires the participants not to get distracted by fake news and false hopes.
The tactics to dishearten people vary from
- psychological warfare
- turning the Internet on and off
- forcing employees to resign
- coercing people to sign false reports
- brutal crushing of protestors
