Censorship, Thoughtcrimes, and Newspeak
“World War lll is a guerrilla information war with no division between military and civilian participation.”
Marshall McLuhan, 1970
George Orwell’s 1949 book, Nineteen Eighty-Four, was intended as a warning against authoritarianism.
These days, it seems like it’s being using as an instruction manual.
What would have been completely unacceptable in a Western democracy just a few short years ago has been adopted with breathtaking speed.
In the past 3 years, we have seen censorship flourish on a previously unimaginable scale.
Just the act of questioning “official” science — which is part of the very nature of science — has become enough to be cancelled, fired, fined, and even jailed.
Just last week, the soft-spoken Quebec mathematics teacher and activist, François Amalega, told me that he cannot work in his field.
Because he followed the actual science and defied masking and other unscientific mandates like curfews, he is considered “dangerous.”
The relentless censorship of leading doctors and scientists is now public knowledge.
In fact, this past Sunday, there was a live Twitter discussion about the attack on free speech in the medical community.
I listened to some of my C-19 heroes, like Dr. Robert Malone, Nick Hudson, and Neil Oliver talk about their personal experiences with this new normal.
You can listen to the whole discussion, including Dr. Malone’s mention of the Canadian military participation in the C-19 psyop, here 👇
But the recent attempt to “re-educate” the outspoken psychologist, author, professor, and public intellectual, Dr. Jordan Peterson, is a chilling new step towards the suppression of dissident voices.
There are currently at least 2 petitions being circulated against this disturbing development.
As if that’s not enough of a sign of Orwellian times, a woman in the UK was recently arrested for a thoughtcrime.
She wasn’t even protesting.
She “might have been praying” in her head near an abortion clinic.
Not even out loud.
The whole event was recorded and is like watching something out of a creepy dystopian British cop series.
Check in out here 👇
Not to be outdone, the Canadian government is redefining “violence” to include possible disruptions to the economy.
When they couldn’t find any actual violence perpetrated by last year’s Freedom Convoy truckers, the Trudeau government created its own version of Newspeak.
Watch this brilliant summation by the always enlightening and entertaining Russell Brand.
Seriously, you’ll want to share this one with everyone who ever had any interest in or doubts about our historic peaceful protest.👇
As always, I aim to leave you with hope.
As I write this, an email appeared in my inbox with this powerful and positive development.
You can read the article and see RFK Jr’s announcement on Tucker Carlson’s show here 👇
We are going to get through this.
But it will take more than the actions of a few brave leaders.
It will take the voices of we the people.
We the people, reminding our elected leaders that they work for us.
We the people, exercising our own agency in reinstating our natural and democratic rights.
If you live in Canada, you have another opportunity to stand up.
If you haven’t yet educated yourself about the chilling Bill C-11, you can read about it here👇
And then sign one more petition HERE.
These are small actions, but if taken by enough of us, we can and will win the greatest spiritual battle in history.
"It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope.”
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
