I have stumbled upon a TEDTalk from 2015, entitled "How the mysterious dark net is going mainstream | Jamie Bartlett," that is apparently based on this book:
The Dark Net: Inside the Digital Underworld Hardcover – May 22, 2015
by Jamie Bartlett (Author)

An Independent and New Statesman Book of the Year

Beyond the familiar online world that most of us inhabit—a world of Google, Facebook, and Twitter—lies a vast and often hidden network of sites, communities, and cultures where freedom is pushed to its limits, and where people can be anyone, or do anything, they want. This is the world of Bitcoin and Silk Road, of radicalism and pornography. This is the Dark Net.

In this important and revealing book, Jamie Bartlett takes us deep into the digital underworld and presents an extraordinary look at the internet we don't know. Beginning with the rise of the internet and the conflicts and battles that defined its early years, Bartlett reports on trolls, pornographers, drug dealers, hackers, political extremists, Bitcoin programmers, and vigilantes—and puts a human face on those who have many reasons to stay anonymous.

Rich with historical research and revelatory reporting, The Dark Net is an unprecedented, eye-opening look at a world that doesn't want to be known.

There’s a parallel Internet you may not have run across yet — accessed by a special browser and home to a freewheeling collection of sites for everything from anonymous activism to illicit activities. Jamie Bartlett reports from the dark net.

Are you telling us there's a new parallel Internet called the "Dark Net"?

I am amazed by this video which I'm watching myself at present and following up on.

I don't know what to make of it yet.

I searched TZ forum before posting this because I figured it would have already been posted since this came out years ago, but came up with nothing.

The Dark web has been around for years. Just download Tor browser and search for some onion link pages and browse all the guns, drugs, and kiddie porn for sale (beware, many are government agents trying to entrap you).

From the transcript:
So the Internet is about to get more interesting, more exciting, more innovative, more terrible, more destructive. That's good news if you care about liberty. It's good news if you care about freedom. It's good news if you care about democracy. It's also good news if you want to browse for illegal pornography and if you want to buy and sell drugs with impunity. Neither entirely dark, nor entirely light. It's not one side or the other that's going to win out, but both.

From Wikipedia:
Jamie Bartlett is a British author and journalist, primarily for The Spectator and The Telegraph. He is a Senior Fellow at Demos and was the Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media at Demos until January 2019.[1]

The Demos website looks interesting:
We are a dynamic “think-and-do” tank that powers the movement for a just, inclusive, multiracial democracy.

There is a thread here where a documentary about the dark web was posted up... the vids have been nuked by youtube though

truth-zone.net/forum/internet-and-information-technology/65279-inside-the-dark-web.html

If you want to try/use TOR, an easy way is get/download Brave browser or GABs Dissenter browser, they have a built in TOR browser page option... "New private window with tor"

I use it here on TZ to be able to see bitchute videos you non censored folks post up, not to mention all the other sites my countries ISPs have now blocked seemingly permanently since tarrant.

(Heres one youtubes missed so far and will end up on bitchute and eventually dark web only)

I see there are two terms: dark "web" and "net." I had searched for "net."

I had never heard of either term before.

It's good to know about it.

I'm especially interested in the testimony of whistleblowers and the thoughts of activists re. making this a better world (peacefully!).

Yes I figured you may have searched for one term and not the other.

I used the other term in my post in this thread purposely so if people search one or the other, the thread might come up.

Sometimes its written as DarkWeb or Darknet also.

Ive never actually used TOR (or any other method) to browse the dark web myself... never looked at it... until non dark websites got banned/blocked, then Brave browser included a TOR browser and I realised I can watch bitchute again and other censored sites without using a VPN.

I still have never used TOR to look at any real 'dark web' sites ever.. just bitchute, liveleak, 4chan and those kinds of things, because internet providers have blocked those websites down undah, lest people stray from the flock.

The guy in the video said something about the URLs being different.

Can Google Advanced Search be accessed with the TOR browser?

No, Search Engines don't work in the Darkweb. Have you downloaded Tor yet?

Hey CD, it seems you have blocked me from your forum, whatever.
Once your on Tor browser you can enter the Darkweb through this Onion Search Engine, onionsearchengine.com/
Don't bother to thank me you PoS :D

No.

I'm not sure I'm interested.

I'm only considering it at this point.

I probably won't because the research I do I will want to post here and that won't be possible.

However, maybe there's a whole community of researchers like myself, and forums, to be accessed there.

Hmmm.

I already had Brave on my computer, so I went ahead and tried it out.

I don’t see anything different about the URLs, so I don’t know what the speaker in the video was talking about.

Tarrant was that clown in Christchurch shooting his paintgun in the mosque.
