Do as I say - Not as You Want - Not as I Do

Reader comment on item: De-platforming in Daily Life
in response to reader comment: On accepting the situation

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jun 3, 2020 at 19:33

As may be deduced here and from the entirety of common civil concepts of societies and the denizens of them all, the foundation and perceptions of Western influenced civilization are now past some several mileposts that have witnessed an increased dependence in freedoms once provided, but except for a dwindling minority, such expressions of liberty (such as that greatly expounded in the United States) are decreasing in in tone and tenor as totalitarianism is now the replacement speak of the modern elite. From the moment of final ratification of the American Constitutional government, seditionists were like termites gnawing away at the foundational truths that comprised the higher ideals that attempted to elevate the condition of humanity in the United States, their deceptions of inequality being totally evil.

What is being witnessed in America does not bode well for the rest of humanity; for if the rule of law (western style) is not reestablished soon, it never will; and an alternative to Western morays will never be considered acceptable for the foreseeable future. Then the government of that time will control the social media and no one will be able to assert an opinion that does not comport to that of the fearless leadership, whomever it is.

Contemplating the consequences that are destined to follow does not produce any favorable results....
