    “In the context of censorship in the West, there was a prevailing illusion that the West embodied greater freedom of speech and press, portraying itself as a society with minimal censorship. Yet, I believe that censorship persists wherever there is power.”

    Indeed

    Censorship, in fact, arises from the vulnerability of power

    Which then suggests that that kind of ‘power’ is without any trust in the moral fiber of society. And if moral fiber indeed is lacking, that i.m.o. would be the place to start building.

    western censorship is ‘more concealed’

    The topic mentioned in the article is not what i’m talking about, but indeed; i know a few other topics for which i’ve been shadowbanned/censored/banned on various platforms. Sadly… including this one. A dialogue trying to learn eachothers reasons is not happening a lot anywhere.

    (edit)I’m from NL and WOO-reqeuest(like FOIA) have shown that govt had API access, to e.g. fb, twitter, used for censoring whoever they see fit.

    Westerners are so propagandized that they don’t even recognize propaganda when they see it. They just internalize it as fact and fight when someone points it out.

    He got cancelled for being against an actual genocide and not one smoked up by a German anthropologist sent from god.
