Here we are with the third weekly digest. Last week the various filesharing sites were kiking our distribution points for Stormer, so we need to get you up to speed on what samizdat is.
I appreciate everyone sharing this thing on social media, but you cannot just share a link. You have to samizdat it.
If you just share a link, everyone will be sharing the same link and all those backlinks will die when complaints to the filesharing host get it pulled, which is what happened last week.
The key part of samizdat is that you take your copy and make a new copy. Given that this is a digital publication, that is a very easy job. As you read this, you have to save the file yourself and then upload it to a new service, and then only share your new upload point. Everyone that reads this must do the same.
This is the only way we can keep the truth alive. They’re shutting everything down. If you link to our domain, well, they’ve been killing the domains we register pretty quickly these days. If you link to our Tor onion, not everyone knows to download Tor Browser to visit our domain at dstormer6em3i4km.onion and they’ll give up when they click the link and it times out.
If you link to the download links on filesharing services, the filesharing services will kill the downloads.
And we don’t even know, there may come a time when they put bullets in our heads and all that remains of this site is the stuff people have archived and shared.
Everyone has to download, archive, and reupload banned literature. This is a lot easier in the era of the Internet than it was for soviet dissidents. Samizdat in the classical sense was hand copied. Every dissident would receive a physical book or pamphlet and make new copies by themselves.
While there were some samizdat producers that were rather sophisticated and used printing presses, generally the presses eventually got seized by the state. That’s sort of where we’re at here, in that domain names are the printing press of the modern era, and ours are being smashed by wicked commie censors.
Now Stormer isn’t just a passive thing for you to read anymore. We need your active participation as a reader. You cannot just share the links to this thing. You must samizdat. Download, copy, place on new and previously unutilized distribution points.
In addition to uploading it to normie web filesharing services, go for p2p networks and non-http list systems as well. USENET, Gnutella, Soulseek, Kad/eDonkey, unmoderated mailing lists (particularly if they have public archives accessible via http).
Put this thing everywhere. Fill every corner of the Internet with it. You need to do more than share the link or retweet. You need to spread copies, and ensure that there is continuously a place for people to find Stormer far and wide. They’re trying to shut this thing down frantically. We need your help to stop that from happening. We cannot do it alone.
