establishment media is an enabler of endless wars and illegitimate oligarchic power
America’s burgeoning censorship movement had a great week. The White House jumped on board, with a matter-of-fact announcement that it was now helping Facebook flag “problematic posts”:

In another ominous development, Politico reported that “Biden-allied groups, including the Democratic National Committee,” were planning to:
Engage fact-checkers more aggressively and work with SMS carriers to dispel misinformation about vaccines that is sent over social media and text messages. The goal is to ensure that people who may have difficulty getting a vaccination because of issues like transportation see those barriers lessened or removed entirely.
For those who may find such developments concerning, there was solace: at least no one is policing our private thoughts. Those are still our own, correct?
Not quite, learned satirical filmmaker, YouTuber, and journalist Matt Orfalea. He’s been involved in several different slapstick-dystopian stories just in the last month or so, none more absurd than a series of YouTube warnings and strikes he received from YouTube for content not one person ever saw, or could see.
