This will be a series of conversations having to do with worrying things on the horizon.
Silicon Valley is speaking. They are speaking loudly.
Youtube is now censoring based upon the opinion of extremists leftist groups who call everybody to the right of stalin is alt-right, rayciss, misogynist, etc.
Styx at one point made a video claiming to be a satanist and talks regularly about his spiritual travels in the occult. So he is concerned about religious conversation, he wants to argue against islam (and formerly christianity) and spread the word of paganism. But that will get you disinvited and maybe shadowbanned by AI.
Here is a popular physiologist who had his account locked without warning or explanation. So this isn’t an overstatement.
You might be saying, that this is only going to come for the really out there people come on. Remember Ben Shapiro is not far removed from the most alt of the alt right.

Patreon has removed a few right of center activists for not violating their ToS, while making outright lies to justify it.

It will be a terrible place to live even if witch-hunts are genuinely wrong.
To circle back to the beginning, he is being called a crypto-conservative because he doesn’t think the current situation or state of the left is healthy. So are other lefties like Tim Pool, David Rubin and Carl Benjamin (Sargon).
At some point “conservatives” are going to have to decide if “muh principlz” is a suicide pact. Down the road of separating the national information system is just going to further isolation and lead to violence. It isn’t just that conservative principles that will get pushed into the shadows, the violence in the streets is only going to get worse. Trump is the least of our problems.
But Zuckerburg said nice sounding things to Glenn Beck.
