China is the ultimate dystopian regime, using technology to track every single citizen’s movements, actions and thoughts every moment of every day. The results are used to determine the quality of the person’s life. Those who do not express sufficient gratitude and obeisance to the state and its supreme leader are punished. There is no freedom, none; there is no humanity. Pro(re)gressives are trying to accomplish the same thing in the US. They have a whacked woke ideology that everyone must hew to, our children must be indoctrinated in it, anyone who strays from full-throated support must lose their job, their friends; they must be banished, imprisoned, executed. They want this ideology to be supported and spread by the large technology and media companies that dominate our daily lives. Until the Twitter files were released, most of us had little idea how aggressively the US government was working to coerce (in some cases, in others the whackos working at the companies were eager to help) these firms into enforcing the prevailing ideology and narrative and suppress alternative views and punish promulgators of those alternative views.
Scott Johnson on Powerline has written extensively on the Twitter revelations. At a Congressional hearing this week, Democrats beclowned themselves advocating for censorship. Michael Schellenberg is a very rational person who testified at the hearing and he has been extremely eloquent in raising the alarm about what these government efforts mean for our democracy and society. You should read this piece carefully in its entirety to understand how pernicious this threat is and learn about the hidden entities that are the spearhead for government control of public discourse. (NY Post Article) Having one China is bad enough for humanity, voluntarily turning ourselves into a second one is unforgiveable.
