Our Authoritarian Moment

Source: Common Sense with Paul Jacob

“Was it something I said? Yesterday, YouTube removed the video of my latest episode of This Week in Common Sense. Why? The platform claims I violated its ‘terms of service’ and ‘community standards’ by providing ‘medical misinformation.’ Funny, YouTube did not specify which statement in the video was incorrect, much less provide any citation to back up its ‘misinformation’ claim. This sort of authoritarianism is quite common these days. We’re just supposed to take the Authority’s word that It Possesses the Whole Truth. No debate. No dissent. There is not even a reference or consult.” (10/11/21)
