US censorship reached a high level

Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives



When it comes to freedom of speech, liberal sources almost unanimously declare such examples as Europe and the United States. The slogan is as follows: as freedom of speech and historical truth is being defended in the United States, America and the European Union, they are not being defended anywhere in the world.

In addition to this slogan are added statements about "propaganda and persecution of freedom of speech in the USSR." Of course, it is simply pointless to argue with the fact that during the Soviet Union there was propaganda and censorship in the media. But to declare in 2021 that the United States remains an example of defending free speech and media availability without political censorship can only occur to a completely unscrupulous person.

Literally before our very eyes, the United States showed how things really are with censorship and freedom of speech. There is no freedom of speech in the States. The accounts of the president of the country, his supporters, and his headquarters are blocked. Pages on social networks on which they allow themselves to express doubts about the integrity of the elections are deleted. The channels cut off the speeches of the head of state and begin to declare that all the words he said are lies. People are dismissed from work who consider those who have decided to express their indignation at the method of counting votes to be right.

But is it only now that censorship and persecution of freedom of speech have shown themselves in the United States? No. Censorship in this state existed before, and, perhaps, in a much more radical form than in the Soviet Union. For dissent, for sympathy with the communist ideology, a person could literally be isolated from public life. Today it finds its repetition.

Nancy Pelosi becomes the face of political censorship in the United States. And this censorship has reached the highest level.

      Trump was unblocked yesterday on Facebook and Twitter. No, it was not democracy that triumphed, it was just that the market capitalization of these companies fell by $ 44 billion after Trump was blocked. a lot of subscribers began to leave, and then the owners realized what kind of money they got, the loot is more expensive, the circus continues yes

          The whole problem is that Western regimes - by definition, are not what they meant by democracy in antiquity .. Democracy is the power of those who, at the first call of the state, are able to stand in the line of the phalanx .. Armed at their own expense. This is the true and fundamental point of any ancient democracy. For democracy - it always starts with duties, not rights .. Rights - they come only later, after you bought yourself a hoplite armor and took an oath to your native policy ..

          In the West, however, everything is upside down - all sorts of swindlers demand significant rights in all areas, tightly forgetting about their responsibilities. Hence the complete infantilism in views and a willingness to surrender to the one who will give more money .. In principle - this is how classical democracies ended their existence - when there were virtually no citizens left in the state, only clients of the oligarchy ..

          Actually - and the Soviet Union began its decline, when it became not fashionable to serve in the army, but on the contrary - the one who had turned away enjoyed universal respect, as a person who knows how to settle in life .. But there were times when girls who did not serve were not going to dances .. Yes and in general, service to society in all areas was considered honorable and worthy .. And the acquisition of dough is, on the contrary, condemned and not respected ..

          About recent times in the Russian Federation - I really keep quiet ..

            Everything is correct. It is interesting that the Greek intelligentsia also considered serving the Motherland their main merit. Aeschylus composed his own epitaph, so it says about the Battle of Marathon, but not a word about his work. Socrates was a model of the hoplite, he was respected even by the Spartans. I won't even talk about Thucydides and other Xenophons. "Their professorship is ready for war!" ©

            Well, about compulsory military service to obtain full citizenship - this is still Bismarck invented. Without serving in the army, a man is deprived of the right of ownership (registered property, including real estate and create legal entities), the right of inheritance (directly follows from the previous one) and the right to hold ANY public office. Everything, there was no end to the volunteers, otherwise your fate is a lonely (who will marry such a man?) Farm laborer in a rented hut until the end of his days.
            Now such a tough guy will not work. Even so - those who received special benefits (unemployment benefits, preferential vouchers, housing subsidies, etc.) from the state in the last 5 years, for example, are deprived of voting rights. Or those who pay tax to the treasury from a monthly income of 1,5 times the minimum wage (this is so that IPki work even to the brink of efficiency). That is, only the population, who actually works and fills the budget, votes, and does not gobble it up. That is to say, the earner of money is responsible for its distribution. Wow, how the portrait of the voter has changed - crowds of the unemployed, grandparents, mentally ill people, conscripts disappear ...

And the fire in the Reichstag is just an excuse skillfully created by him (AAG) to begin clearing the political field for the NSDAP. IMHO.

    Why did the Soviet communists not give freedom of speech to the enemies of the communists on the territory of the USSR, and jammed Western radio stations? Because they KNEW that they had already spoken and written, and that they would speak and write even more if they were given freedom - there was always only one lie, slander, hypocrisy, demonstrative double standards "and this is different", and the enemies of the communists on the territory USSR - also boorish insults to the USSR, Soviet power, the Soviet people. That's why the enemies of the communists so longed for freedom of speech "Scoop, scoops, Sharikovs, Stalin cannibal, ghoul, ghoul, all Stalinists are the descendants of guards"? For the sake of justifying the invaders of Russia and the USSR, the interventionists and Germans / Hitlerites, praising their accomplices from among the citizens of Russia and the USSR? For the sake of declaring ALL criminals who have gone through the GULAG in 30 years "innocent victims"?

    If freedom of speech means the opportunity to say anything to anyone, and without bothering with adequate argumentation, then such freedom of speech turns into a farce in which everyone tries to shout down the other and there is no sense in it. This is at least. As a maximum, freedom of speech bears outright harm if, under the guise of such "freedom", they try to shove a lie as it was, for example, in the USSR at the end of the 80s, when, under the guise of "freedom" and "pluralism of opinions", interested persons openly brought any nonsense to the masses with the aim to discredit the Soviet system in the eyes of the people.

    Freedom of speech is useful only when, under its flag, either a theory that is currently leading is criticized with arguments, or an alternative theory is proposed. Typical examples: the apologist of heliocentrism Giordano Bruno and Robin Warren, who proved the connection of the ulcer with Helicobacter. Examples are typical, since at first the views of both authors were met with hostility and rejected.

    In fact, freedom of speech in this case means well-reasoned criticism or an innovative idea, which in a properly organized society should automatically initiate an investigation, and, if the presented data have been confirmed, become the basis for amending existing rules, norms, protocols, laws, instructions, statutes, etc. documents, not to mention the punishment of those guilty, if any.

    As for the West and specifically the United States, the construction of "bourgeois democracy" has always been used there solely for the purpose of imitating a democratic form of organization of society that does not exist in reality. Western "democracy" is the same lie, regularly exported, like the notorious Hollywood films, which mostly depict a picture that is far from American reality, as well as false propaganda about the USSR intended for internal use in order to incite hatred and form a stereotypical image enemy in the eyes of their population.

    In fact, the West has previously represented and still represents an alliance of dictatorships, the main instrument for achieving success is military power and, of course, lies, since a competent mastery of the art of deception is an effective tool both in negotiations and in the diplomatic sphere, and even more so in any war. The West has always been, is and will remain a military bloc. And it will cease to be such only when the policy pursued by him ceases to bring practical success, which both earlier and now is expressed in the forcing of numerous colonies to work for the benefit of the metropolises.

    It seems to me that in connection with the advanced age of those in power in the United States, events may occur that will lead to the death of civilization. Senile aggressiveness manifests itself gradually. Not diagnosed at an early stage. But old people suffering from this disease do not make adequate decisions. Only the lazy will not speak about Biden's dementia. But the old lady Nancy (80), I think, suffers from something similar. Sanders is 78 years old. And they have one individual in the Senate, so he is 86 years old.
    Out of 100 senators, 25 members of the US Senate are over 70 years old, of which seven are over 80 years old.
