As the great purge of freedom of speech, thought, expression, ideas and beliefs is in process, there should be no comforting thought as website after website, Google throttle after throttle of information and speech they deem unacceptable is silenced, mainstream and government propaganda that is nothing more than blatant lies takes its final dump on all peoples in this jacked-up melodrama that life has become.
The semi-truck is gaining steam, barreling over any and all who express an opinion, even a thought contrary to the Newspeak of today.

If you are against war…you are vermin. If you express a thought contrary to the corporate idiocy of the day – your opinions will be absorbed into the collective outhouse that no one will ever venture a visit too, lest they be dumped into the shithole of the modern era of approved horseshit.

And the bag of dystopian gemstones isn’t just for the Chinese.
New airport facial recognition programs are being rolled out across the land of the free and home of the brave. A man was arrested because he was riding a bike without a bell on it. Trump commits US to indefinite military presence in Syria – it’s not just other countries experiencing the joys of totalitarianism – it is here front and center in the richest country in the world.
Americans have been successfully programmed to count their lives as extraordinary if they can puppet the latest nonsense from a media who takes delight in having every one of us at each others’ throats. Better still, they rejoice if the BS they shove down our throats each day results in citizens throwing their arms up in the air and concentrating on nothing more than the man-bun they just met or admiring for two seconds the meal someone else is about to eat.
“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.” Albert Camus
The puppet show of politicians and mainstream media idiots pretending they care when they could give nothing more than an apathetic fart to the everyday lives of citizens should be evident to all.
But it isn’t.
An educational system so bogged down in political correctness that it couldn’t teach children how to think independently if its entire livelihood depended on it is the norm. Indifferent or calloused parents who think that giving their children the proper upbringing involves instilling in them that the only thing that matters is the good job you might secure, the money you make, the expansive home you might purchase – it is no wonder that so few care about about what is right and what is wrong.
Washington continues to advance their regime change activities on innocent nations. They aren’t simply changing dictators who will advance Washington’s hegemony, they are ending millions of innocent lives in the process. Few bat an eye at it all.
As Syria and Russia advance on the last conclave of terrorists in Syria, the US military is preparing “options” in Syria – a sovereign nation that has never extended any invitation for the US to be there. And as of this writing, the US has deployed two fighter F-15’s jets, using banned phosphorus bombs in Deir ez-Zor province, the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation said in a statement.
Nothing to see here…it’s week 1 of the NFL season. If Washington keeps up with their provocations, there may not be a week 16 for anyone.
Americans who still value free speech might consider studying the ways people in the former Soviet Union use to communicate, out of necessity, lest they found themselves in the gulag for expressing ideas contrary to the State.
Sadly, it appears the time has come to dust off ways of communication that might not be easily tracked by the demons of censorship…ways that most haven’t an idea of, but if they value the right to express themselves, their ideas, their opinions and thoughts as many a writer, pundit, thinker or just the ordinary citizen protesting the squelching of truth and what it is right and wrong has written about and in some cases, died for – it may be all that is left to fight the current insanity.
“Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world…would do this, it would change the earth.” ~ William Faulkner
