A Lot Of Americans Are Staying Quiet Right Now


Suddenly your opinions qualify as crimes. Dare to say what you think at work, and you’ll be fired in the middle of a recession. Write what you think online, and you’ll be silenced immediately by the big tech companies. So you keep your views to yourself. You have no choice. A lot of Americans are doing that right now: staying quiet. That’s the point of censorship: to keep people isolated and alone — to prevent a consensus from forming that challenges the people in charge. If you’re forced to shut up, they can do what they want to you and your country.
