It’s invading even my preferred forums. “We’re polite here,” says the moderator, who boasts constantly about his ‘free-speech’ platform. I’m reminded of my grandmother, bless her heart, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
If I can’t say it, can I show it? Maybe with a photo or a painting or a poem?
Really? Are we not adults? Must every passionate reproach come with milk and cookies lest you soil yourself with fear? Must your poetic weakness control even my righteous indignation? Have you ever wondered why you’re so afraid, as you pretend you’re surrounded by love?
Shame, guilt, coercion, all erode free speech just as much as shadow banning. As do the ubiquitous ‘community guidelines’ and the silencing, the ostracizing and ‘casting out’ of uncomfortable or critical viewpoints. Funny thing is, the very ones who complain about this the most, then seem to pile it on at the very same time!

Perhaps he’d be inclined today to add something like: “The velvet glove that chokes the angry voice hides a martyr in her garter.”
Like laws, these ‘guidelines’ are selective, what makes one guilty in one situation is not universally applied to another’s whose infraction yielded results beneficial, albeit perhaps even criminal, to the Alpha myth-maker’s agenda.
It all comes complete with fake feel-good language and unspoken devotion to conformity to tribe norms. Enforcing conformity through indirect aggression, as demonstrated through Phyllis Chesler’s controversial book “Woman’s Inhumanity to Woman” or the ultra-feminization of culture, as explored through Michael Tsarion’s work on the malignant feminine we can see exactly how the Globalists and their ilk continue to successfully cast their sticky net today.
What’s unspoken, and unallowable, are questioning the underlying assumptions. “Sustainable to what/whom, exactly?”
“Efficient and effective by what standards?”
They are so seduced by the image of virtue they’ve lost touch with what virtue actually is. It’s not pretending evil does not exist. It’s not turning a blind eye. It’s not transforming dissociation into a gift. And it’s certainly not handing over all sovereignty to supposed ‘experts’ and ‘authorities’— the scourge of our modern-day adultism.
If I pretend it’s love, it is love. If I pretend it’s justice, it is justice. If I slap a happy slogan on it, paint a rainbow over it, it’s fixed.
Jon Rappoport, When Virtue is the Greatest Crime
“They are the counter-revolution that has been building in this country for over a hundred years. It is being managed from elite platforms, and its goal is the destruction of every shred of the original ideas on which this country was founded. Destruction in fact, in thought, in action, and in memory. Wipe out the memory of…Individual freedom…And what freedom implies. Wipe out self. Replace it with an all-embracing societal machine dedicated to love.”
Set the next generation up for total compliance, blind obedience to authority, and we’ll call that love and care.
Love, as in complete lack of discernment, devoid of honesty or truth, beyond accountability, and we’ll call this perfect love, ultimate love, unconditional love. Before you know it, the abused will apply this to the tyrannical state as they did to the tyrannical family.
Except, that it has lots of undisclosed conditions. Like, the tyranny of niceness and conformity. If you make her uncomfortable, the rules change. If you require accountability, the goal post shifts.
If you point out her highly conditional love, you see swiftly and clearly the real elephant in the room.
“After ten years in the field, I have had many prosecutors tell me that they prefer to not have women on their juries because women will not identify with the woman survivor, as a psychological means of reassuring themselves that nothing so horrendous could ever happen to them. Women either believe that the raped woman did something wrong that “allowed” the rape to happen—or that what happened was not rape. Either way, they themselves remain out of the Possible Victim category in their minds.”
