Unnecessarily limiting options

Greenwald is the canary in the mine:  "What happened to Glenn Greenwald? Trump happened – and put the left’s priorities to the test" (Cook). Pretty thorough evisceration of Robinson, a mess who isn't worth reading.  One thing coming to the forefront is that the left-right distinction has largely been ignored by the Right, particularly by right populists who see it as a harmful distraction, unnecessarily limiting options, while for the Left it has become an obsession, particularly in administering the purity tests which are now everywhere.

Tweet (Jesse Kelly):

"REMINDER: It’s high treason if you saunter into the capitol building and snap a selfie but it’s really not that big of a deal if you falsify evidence so the FISA court will give you a warrant to spy on your political opponent."

"FBI monitoring of social media posts before Jan 6 raises more questions of how much it REALLY knew prior to Capitol Hill riot" (Klarenberg).  One of the paradoxes of the Panopticon is that it is now impossible for any government agency to claim ignorance of anything.

"The End of Global Internet: U.S. Seized Foreign Domains" (South Front):
"At first, disinformation campaigns, discrediting and blackmailing of independent media became the norm. Further, the persecution of journalists and editors became the common practice. Further, the Americans used to introduce personal and group sanctions, freezing ( in other words ‘stealing’) individual funds of undesirable persons. Further,  there were arrests and even kidnappings of those who went beyond the American agenda. Realizing their impunity, the White House started to block the independent media and objectionable news agencies. The Big Techs, controlled by the White House, began to scour the information space from content that, according to Washington, could pose a threat to the promotion of the interests of the American elites.

Since the above measures did not bring the desirable results, the Americans decided to take the next step and completely block domains of its ‘ foes ‘.

Thus, today, we can proclaim the death of global Internet. This is a signal to the whole world and an open declaration of US imperial dominance."
