Censorship as Absurdism
The Information Wars Part XII
"The absurd is the essential concept and the first truth." -Albert Camus
I can only laugh. I've been censored on social media too many times to count. In 2021, my Farcebook account was suspended for nearly half the year, all told. Much of that was for telling simple truths.
Sometimes, the fact checkers embarrassed themselves by taking shots at me.
But the Farcebook algomoronic Big Brother team has outdone themselves, this time.
To be perfectly clear, I do not believe that Dr. Brian Tyson is a witch, and I have no interest in burning him or any other witches. I am prepared to sign an affidavit to the effect, though to be perfectly honest, I'm not even sure I know what a witch is. I have however had a laugh or two over the concept.
But for those who might require greater evidence of my peaceful intentions, I took the step of helping Dr. Tyson (and Dr. Fareed) write a book. Now, I appeal to intuition, but without formal evidence, that there is a low correlation rate between co-authoring medical narratives and burning as witches among community members.
And as of March 22, 2022, I have never once lit a co-author on fire. Not once. All suggestions to the contrary are slander and poisoning of the well.
Despite the silliness of this particular act of censorship, we should take it quite seriously. It is the most arbitrary exercises of power that should concern us the most. This is corporate power telling us that they will attempt to punish us not for true crimes or reprehensible behavior, but for wrongthink. This is an attempt to shatter the will of free thinkers, and hence sovereign individuals. But it comes at a cost to the corporations: They're telegraphing their intentions. They're letting us know that it is they who are combatants in the world war on everybody.
