Without Liberty, the Brain is a Dungeon

We should all be aware by now of the dirty tricks Facebook has been using for years now, to stifle certain opinions and information.

If you're not aware of this, then your head is stuck firmly up your ass, and you probably vote Liberal or NDP.

Not that I am shilling for the Conservatives, either. Doug Ford has been a bitter disappointment for libertarian-minded people - still better than the vomitous wokery of the McGuinty/Wynne years.

And though I would probably rather see Poilievre oust the current flaming charlatan, con-artist, grifter, drama teacher, make-up artist, and ski instructor, my expectations remain muted.

On the other hand, if you know what I am talking about, consider what life will be like when the entire internet, and your entire life, is just like Facebook, where your latitude for expressing your humanity is severely circumscribed. Via algorithms and anonymous "fact-checkers."

Cat videos are okay. But don't you dare question the safety and efficacy of the mRNA shots.

They will train you. You will learn to self-censor. We've had forty years of practice. They used to call it, "political correctness." It worked.

Don't you miss the days of political correctness, though? At least, back then, the worst you would experience was dirty looks and ostracism. Now you risk fucking jail.

The thought, to me, is an absolute nightmare. But what scares me more is that 99% of the hoi polloi won't even know it's happening,

and worse, won't even care.
