U.S. Government Manipulation of Internet Social Media to Isolate Dissent and Promote Government Agendas

This article comes from a blog I've never heard of (not that that means anything).  In addition to new revelations from Edward Snowden, the blog reports intense traffic from a U.S. Air Force base in Florida.  The purpose of this traffic, to manipulate a site called Reddit.  Again, I have no idea what Reddit is.

However, what is clear is that corporations like Facebook as well as agencies of the U.S. Government are engaged in psychological operations against the American public.

Their objective: to make dissenters feel as if no one else shares their feelings and opinions and that government approved perspectives are those of the public as well. 

This seems similar to the Russian Revolution.  A tiny party named itself the "majority" party and ferociously seized power.  The Russian word for majority - Bolshevik.

The American Bolsheviki seek to overwhelm the masses with individual isolation and mass broadcast of lies.

Seems like a bad thing.
