YouTube cartoon videos programming toddlers for trauma and destruction
Play very close attention to this one. Its boggling.
A reader recently sent me a note which alerted me to a form of programming Id never heard of. The links he sent introduced me to what is a very widespread phenomenon on YouTube. The technology involved is beyond my limited understanding. Some of you will be able to clarify the situation.

But in these cartoons, there is disturbing content, to say the least. Ugliness, violence. All presented in a repetitive cheery tone.
Supposedly, some of this content is created by random algorithms. From what Ive seen so far, I find that hard to believe.
Here is the readers note. Read, follow the links, and see what you think:
