affecting American ░░░░░░░░ today We start with ░░░░░░░░ As you probably heard ░░░░░░░░ many of the biggest ░░░░░░░░ companies joined in a ░░░░░░░░ effort to censor content ░░░░░░░░ Alex Jones Apple Facebook ░░░░░░░░ Vimeo YouTube all of ░░░░░░░░ pulled or froze Jones ░░░░░░░░ on the grounds that ░░░░░░░░ views are too dangerous ░░░░░░░░ be heard publicly The ░░░░░░░░ which seeks to crush ░░░░░░░░ it can t control ░░░░░░░░ the news The institutional ░░░░░░░░ in Washington afraid of ░░░░░░░░ criticized mostly stayed silent ░░░░░░░░ was foolish and it ░░░░░░░░ cowardly This isn t ░░░░░░░░ Alex Jones or any ░░░░░░░░ person It s about ░░░░░░░░ central principle of our ░░░░░░░░ and it s at ░░░░░░░░ here Do people have ░░░░░░░░ right to communicate their ░░░░░░░░ It doesn t matter ░░░░░░░░ those views are Alex ░░░░░░░░ views or anyone else ░░░░░░░░ views They may be ░░░░░░░░ or repugnant They often ░░░░░░░░ There is a remedy ░░░░░░░░ repugnant views make a ░░░░░░░░ case Defeat bad ideas ░░░░░░░░ good ideas Kill lies ░░░░░░░░ truth That s how ░░░░░░░░ society functions We are ░░░░░░░░ in the opposite direction ░░░░░░░░ the people in charge ░░░░░░░░ technology to silence criticism ░░░░░░░░ of them The left ░░░░░░░░ tell that you defending ░░░░░░░░ Jones right to speak ░░░░░░░░ the same as defending ░░░░░░░░ Alex Jones says That ░░░░░░░░ a lie They know ░░░░░░░░ s a lie We ░░░░░░░░ make the very same ░░░░░░░░ on behalf of Jill ░░░░░░░░ or Noam Chomsky on ░░░░░░░░ left or anyone else ░░░░░░░░ establishment was trying to ░░░░░░░░ The left wing ACLU ░░░░░░░░ about 100 years representing ░░░░░░░░ extremists whose views they ░░░░░░░░ and they did it ░░░░░░░░ make that point free ░░░░░░░░ is for everybody even ░░░░░░░░ crazies That s the ░░░░░░░░ definition of free speech ░░░░░░░░ a free country everyone ░░░░░░░░ be heard in totalitarian ░░░░░░░░ only the powerful can ░░░░░░░░ heard The left used ░░░░░░░░ understand that But they ░░░░░░░░ t anymore What changed ░░░░░░░░ are the most powerful ░░░░░░░░ in the world suddenly ░░░░░░░░ threatened by an independent ░░░░░░░░ show host in Texas ░░░░░░░░ they are willing to ░░░░░░░░ business in order to ░░░░░░░░ him shut up And ░░░░░░░░ is hardly their only ░░░░░░░░ Every day the big ░░░░░░░░ companies censor someone else ░░░░░░░░ political opinions they disagree ░░░░░░░░ You see it all ░░░░░░░░ time Last summer the ░░░░░░░░ of Google who is ░░░░░░░░ billionaire by the way ░░░░░░░░ home from family vacation ░░░░░░░░ to fire a low ░░░░░░░░ programmer called James Damore ░░░░░░░░ did Damore do His ░░░░░░░░ was writing a private ░░░░░░░░ that gently questioned identity ░░░░░░░░ The reaction in both ░░░░░░░░ those cases and many ░░░░░░░░ like them was weirdly ░░░░░░░░ Almost hysterical like shooting ░░░░░░░░ for looking at you ░░░░░░░░ Confident people don t ░░░░░░░░ like that Insecured terrified ░░░░░░░░ do That s the ░░░░░░░░ Our establishment crushes dissent ░░░░░░░░ because our establishment is ░░░░░░░░ but because it is ░░░░░░░░ and afraid In the ░░░░░░░░ of a perceptive essay ░░░░░░░░ week Censorship is what ░░░░░░░░ when powerful people get ░░░░░░░░ That piece was written ░░░░░░░░ a former Wall Street ░░░░░░░░ called Michael Krieger and ░░░░░░░░ s worth quoting the ░░░░░░░░ length here The elites ░░░░░░░░ t afraid what Alex ░░░░░░░░ says Krieger writes Trump ░░░░░░░░ t divide American society ░░░░░░░░ Jones didn t cause ░░░░░░░░ widespread distrust in institutions ░░░░░░░░ did that with their ░░░░░░░░ failures Trump s election ░░░░░░░░ Alex Jones popularity are ░░░░░░░░ symptoms of a corrupt ░░░░░░░░ failed status quo The ░░░░░░░░ of which refuse to ░░░░░░░░ a look in the ░░░░░░░░ accept blame and reform ░░░░░░░░ by Silicon Valley billionaires ░░░░░░░░ back fire spectacularly ultimately ░░░░░░░░ s safer for society ░░░░░░░░ have open public forums ░░░░░░░░ all ideas whether you ░░░░░░░░ them dangerous and crazy ░░░░░░░░ not can be openly ░░░░░░░░ alongside each other Deep ░░░░░░░░ popular content won t ░░░░░░░░ it go away It ░░░░░░░░ just shift to areas ░░░░░░░░ the Internet you may ░░░░░░░░ see where it will ░░░░░░░░ and grow stronger You ░░░░░░░░ think it s gone ░░░░░░░░ society because it s ░░░░░░░░ safely cleansed from your ░░░░░░░░ government Facebook time line ░░░░░░░░ it may grow even ░░░░░░░░ in the shadows In ░░░░░░░░ words censorship does not ░░░░░░░░ Ideas spread Good ones ░░░░░░░░ root and they endure ░░░░░░░░ know what s true ░░░░░░░░ can smell it you ░░░░░░░░ t stop them from ░░░░░░░░ that You can t ░░░░░░░░ their minds You can ░░░░░░░░ humiliate yourself and undermine ░░░░░░░░ own authority by trying ░░░░░░░░ childish billionaire overlords may ░░░░░░░░ geniuses they say they ░░░░░░░░ but they don t ░░░░░░░░
