Here's a timely excerpt from Jon Rappoport's 5-15-19 article entitled "Censorship and the Decline of Civilization":
There are now large numbers of people who think they're making a
political advance, even a breakthrough, by demanding the censorship of
those individuals they don't like, when in fact, they're moving
backwards into a more primitive political climate.
There is another vital factor which permits people to register no
objection to censorship. The factor is: vast frustration with their own
lives. This is usually concealed, as if it were a secret not to be
shared. The frustration, at the core, has to do with
a perceived lack of freedom.
In which case, the actions of life take on a mechanical character, which
becomes the heavy cover, the lid over the flame of frustration---and in
that state of being, a person actually wants others who speak out and
go against the grain to be silenced and censored.
Stop him! Keep him from speaking and writing!
Yes, keep the free individual from reminding the mechanical liver of life that he is not free.
The Mechanical Person wants to bury all signals that carry a flavor of
originality. He wants the constant hum that tells him routine and
repetition are firmly in place as the guidance system of existence.
In the frozen rigid river of anti-life...rebels are just machines that
need to be turned off. Censorship is a tool for that purpose.
That's what censorship really is.
An attempt to hide that disturbing thing called Life.
