The War On Free Speech

Governments, corporations, and elites have always been fearful of the power of a free press, because it is capable of exposing their lies, destroying their carefully crafted images, and undermining their authority. In recent years, alternative journalism has been growing and more people are relying on social media platforms as sources of news and information. In response, the corporate state, digital conglomerates, and the mainstream media have been increasingly supportive of the silencing and censoring of alternative media outlets and voices that challenge the official narrative on most issues.

 

At the recent World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland, "Australian eSafety commissioner" Julie Inman Grant stated that "freedom of speech is not the same thing as a free for all," and that "we are going to need a recalibration of a whole range of human rights that are playing out online—from freedom of speech … to be free from online violence." Meanwhile, the Canadian government is seeking to restrict independent media and the freedom of expression via the implementation of Bill C-11, which would allow it to regulate all online audiovisual platforms on the internet, including content on Spotify, Tik Tok, YouTube, and podcast clients.

 

Similarly, the UK is seeking to introduce an Online Safety Bill, the US "paused" the establishment of a Disinformation Governance Board following backlash, and the European Union approved its own Digital Services Act, all of which aim to limit the freedom of speech. Attempts by elites and politicians to silence dissenters and critical thinkers is not something new. In fact, history is full of examples of "the persecution of men of science, the burning of scientific books, and the systematic eradication of the intelligentsia of the subjected people."

 

However, these current efforts to curtail freedom of speech and press by supposedly liberal governments are still somewhat ironic, given that even "the most intolerant of churches, the Roman Catholic Church, even at the canonization of a saint, admits, and listens patiently to, a 'devil's advocate.' The holiest of men, it appears, cannot be admitted to posthumous honors, until all that the devil could say against him is known and weighed."

The corporate state, digital conglomerates, and the mainstream media want to ensure that they have the exclusive authority to dictate people's opinions, wants, and choices through their sophisticated propaganda techniques. To do so, they have even resorted to transforming falsehoods into truth. In fact, the word truth has already had its original meaning altered, as those who speak the truth on certain subjects are now regularly accused of spreading hate speech, misinformation, and disinformation.

 

Presently, truth is no "longer something to be found, with the individual conscience as the sole arbiter of whether in any particular instance the evidence (or the standing of those proclaiming it) warrants a belief; it becomes something to be laid down by authority, something which has to be believed in the interest of the unity of the organized effort, and which may have to be altered as the exigencies of this organised effort require it."

 

However, modifying the definition of truth comes with the potential for great peril, as truth-seeking often contributes to human progress in that it leads to discoveries that ultimately benefit society at large. It should be noted that truth is by no means the only word whose meaning has been changed recently in order for it to serve as an instrument of propaganda; others include freedomjusticelawrightequalitydiversitywomanpandemicvaccine, etc. This is highly concerning, because such attempts at the "perversion of language, the change of meaning of the words by which the ideals" of the ruling class are expressed is a consistent feature of totalitarian regimes.

As a number of liberal-democratic governments increasingly move toward totalitarianism, they want people to forget that there is "the greatest difference between presuming an opinion to be true, because, with every opportunity for contesting it, it has not been refuted, and assuming its truth for the purpose of not permitting its refutation." According to them, "public criticism or even expressions of doubt must be suppressed because they tend to weaken public support."

The war on free speech is a result of wokeness, which itself is political correctness taken to the extreme, which is itself an expression of female / yin energy. If China / Russia are expressions of Yang-polarized societies, then the Western/woke world is the expression of its Yin counterpart. Make a society hyper feminised (i.e. yin imbalanced) and wokeness / PCness is what you get. Taoists teach us that the yin/yang energies are ever in flux. Wokeness is on the wane. The left will eat itself as nature corrects the imbalance. We are already seeing this correction in the growing hatred people have of wokeness and all it entails. Banning trans from women's sports is one of many pushback we've seen and will be seeing.

 

We can expect in the coming years to see a much more open and blatant politically INcorrect rhetoric. People will start to become more outspoken on things that they have up until now been afraid of. That will extend to every "sacred cow" of wokeness: trans, immigrants, minorities, women... the pillars upholding wokeness that can not be targeted, will be targeted. This will be good and healthy for all.

 

People will eventually shirk the fear of being called any of the weaponised labels used to keep people quiet—which does not mean that they are racist, sexist, mysoginist or whatever, nor are they becoming the things the media says they are—they are simply allowing themselves to ride the wave of repolarising yang-energy. Those who resist this wave will suffer for it. The unhingedness, autistic childish behaviour of the left is the cost of resisting the universe's attempts at rebelance.

I've actually heard one LGBT commentator say "Many in the LGBTQ community do not support Woke. They do not want to be in the public eye this much. A lot of people are afraid of an angry backlash against the community."

 

Woke CAME FROM SOMEWHERE VEEERY HIGH UP.
