The Death Of Truth
Over the past several days I have had some time to think, and my thoughts have repeatedly turned to the current state of the Internet. For a couple of decades after it was popularized, the Internet was one of the greatest tools for free speech that the world has ever seen. It allowed ordinary people like me to share truth on a massive scale with other ordinary people all over the planet. I have always been grateful for that opportunity, but now our ability to share truth with one another over the Internet is being systematically eroded. Nobody can deny that this is taking place, because it is literally happening right in front of our eyes. Over the past decade, control of the Internet has become increasingly centralized. The big tech companies have become exceptionally powerful, and they have become addicted to using that power to suppress speech that they do not like.
This is an extremely dangerous trend, because the Internet has become the primary way that the vast majority of us communicate with one another. It truly is our modern version of “the marketplace of ideas”, but now the big tech companies are absolutely determined to distort it into something else entirely.
At this point, there are a whole host of ideas that you aren’t allowed to freely discuss on the Internet anymore.
In fact, there are a whole host of questions that you aren’t even allowed to ask.
When a society gets to a point where you aren’t even allowed to ask questions, that is a very clear sign that you are living under a very oppressive authoritarian regime.
Years ago when they started banning various prominent voices we all knew that it wouldn’t end there.
And it hasn’t.
Today, the big tech companies have no problem banning literally anyone. For example, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene just got permanently banned on Twitter…
Five years ago, if you told me that the big tech companies would start banning our politicians in Washington, I would have told you that you were crazy.
But now nobody is safe. Once Twitter and Facebook banned a sitting president, we all knew that there was no going back.
Of course the pandemic has given the big tech companies an excuse to push their levels of censorship to even higher levels. Just a few days ago, Twitter banned Dr. Robert Malone just before he was interviewed by Joe Rogan…
So now it appears that Twitter is preemptively banning people.
We truly have entered “Minority Report” territory, and that is extremely chilling.
Considering everything that has been happening with the pandemic, you would think that we would want to hear what one of the inventors of mRNA technology has to say. Dr. Robert Malone has decades of experience, and he had been one of the most respected names in his field.
But because he has viewpoints that don’t align with the official narratives being pushed by the pharmaceutical industry, he is being blacklisted by the big tech companies.
If you think that you can get around all the censorship by simply refusing to use the big tech company platforms, you are wrong.
Just consider this example. Gateway Pundit is reporting that T-Mobile is literally erasing links to their articles from text messages…
I have had a similar experience with articles written by Mike Adams of Natural News. When I try to send links to Natural News through Facebook Messenger, the links are simply erased from the messages somehow.
That is the level of censorship that we are now facing.
They literally want to control what we see, what we hear and what we think. And of course this is setting the stage for a level of authoritarianism unlike anything we have ever seen before in all of human history.
Without freedom of speech, all of our other freedoms will rapidly become meaningless.
Sadly, at this point freedom of speech in the United States is getting pretty close to being completely wiped out.
Our Republic is rapidly dying, and millions upon millions of Americans are cheering as it happens.
The big tech companies have become the arbiters of truth, but most of the “truths” that they are relentlessly pushing are actually lies.
I don’t know if there is a way out of this mess, but we must find one, because the future of our society hangs in the balance.
