What to do if Meta’s Facebook or WhatsApp is being used in human trafficking?

Meta is a silicon valley giant that, as a corporate person, meets all the definitions of the main text of fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) as an antisocial entity, in as much as it can apply to an organization.

The DSM-5defines antisocial personality disorder as being characterized by at least three of the following traits:

(1) Failure to conform to social norms and laws, indicated by repeatedly engaging in illegal activities.

(2) Deceitfulness, indicated by continuously lying, using aliases, or conning others for personal gain and pleasure.

(3) Exhibiting impulsivity or failing to plan ahead.

(4) Irritability and aggressiveness, indicated by repeatedly getting into fights or physically assaulting others.

(5) Reckless behaviors that disregard the safety of others.

(6) Irresponsibility, indicated by repeatedly failing to consistently work or honor financial obligations.

(7) Lack of remorse after hurting or mistreating another person.

Our assertion is evidenced by Meta’s wilful blindness to the human trafficking that they are supporting. Read more here: How WhatsApp Provides Material Support to Human Traffickers, Scammers and Torturers

What does this likely diagnosis mean in practicality?

Aiding and Abetting International Human Trafficking and Organized Crime

Meta’s WhatsApp is a crucial tool used by Chinese Pig Butchering scammers to operate their multi-billion dollar a year financial and crypto scams. The explosive growth of this industry necessitates the mass kidnapping of naive south east asian, and other developing regions after luring them to Thailand, or neigboring countries, with the promise of lucrative telesales work. The victims then have their passports confiscated at the border of Cambodia, Myanmar or Laos, and they are beyond rescue.

If you receive a “wrong number” message through WhatsApp, it is very likely that you are now connected with one of these slaves.

Help pressure Meta into doing more to disrupt these human trafficking syndicates that are using WhatsApp, Facebook and other tools.
