Christchurch and the Internet : The net benefit of the extreme Right-wing

woman loose, the Islamophobic attack in Christchurch – what is the role of the Internet in the radicalisation of terrorists?

radical people can network easily. Your thoughts transport you in part by Exaggeration and Ironic approach, fantasies of Violence are normalized through jokes. Whether something serious or not serious, can hardly be distinguished.

the extreme Right take advantage of specific properties of the network?
The net benefit to the extreme Right. They would spread in the analog Public with their propaganda, you could give them ban house. That's not going in the net easy. There you can buy quickly a new profile. In addition, certain discussions by "Trolling" in the network sabotage.

Exploit the extreme Right of the charm of the Anarchic nature of the net for their own purposes?
Absolutely. The attractiveness of the Anarchic has always been a core element of the network. To have gone through its division into five or six large corporations, a little lost, but remains important. These views of a generally loose, in a way, egalitarian society means that you can be different in real life – in some cases, be extreme. An old cartoon in "New Yorker" is still valid today: on The Internet nobody knows you're a dog.

Irregularly and egalitarian – that was to the left.
In this development, there is also a destructive and anti-democratic Element. In some UN-moderated reservoir people get together, the women hate foreigners, hate and all your hate fully act out.

The Video, the assassins of Christchurch, his crime was filmed, is still in circulation. This can not be prevented?
Not quite. There are too many anonymous ways to upload it. Illegal content can be saved on Internet servers in foreign countries. Bans have not worked with drugs, guns and not in the case of child pornography.

However, a technical solution is: You can calculate from a picture or Video of the checksum and if this checksum appears at some point in the System, can be blocked in the image during the Upload. As a result, the dissemination of certain content can be very limit.
