“The state, I call it, where all are poison-drinkers, the good and the bad: the state, where all lose themselves, the good and the bad: the state, where the slow suicide of all — is called “life.” Just see these superfluous ones! They steal the works of the inventors and the treasures of the wise. Culture, they call their theft — and everything becometh sickness and trouble unto them! Just see these superfluous ones! Sick are they always; they vomit their bile and call it a newspaper. They devour one another, and cannot even digest themselves.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, “Thus Spoke Zarathustra”
State censorship has been evident over all time, but what is happening today, especially considering the ease of access and the voluminous amount of information available, is far beyond the scope of understanding for most in this country. The Internet is a wonder, but it is a very sharp double-edged sword. The real power among us understands this concept intimately, while the ‘public’ has little awareness of the potential for the controllers to eliminate history and speech by using the very tool that should allow for an expansion of learning and intellect. The Internet can store and make available all the works of man, both past and present, and all this information is seemingly accessible to anyone with little effort, but is that really the case?
The risk that is missed by most, is that as easy as it is to access information today, that information can be manipulated, hidden, or eliminated just as easily, and that process could be controlled by a central ‘authority’ through any of its fascist partnerships. If much of the underlying information of recorded history; books, journals, letters, and all historical and political records and writings, can be captured, controlled, or even destroyed by nefarious efforts, then that would leave available only what is stored digitally. This would be an abomination, because it would also allow for the loss of much hard knowledge of the past and present by those controlling the Internet and communication systems. For this horror to occur, all books would not have to be destroyed, but if much of the important information were restricted from view by whatever means, or made very difficult to access, then people would know only what the state wanted them to know.
We live in a digitized age where physical classic and modern works, documents, books, and papers are very seldom sought. I find this very troubling, because the general population, especially the young, have been raised and trained in an era of television, cell phones and computers, and many have never read any physical material about history, culture, nature, science, art, or any other of a multitude of subjects. In other words, they are fully dependent on the mainstream media, technology, and the Internet for all the information they get, good or bad. It takes little imagination to realize that this could lead to a planned censorship over generations so as to mold minds in a way suitable to the state. If all information is thought to be available from limited sources that can be manipulated, censored, or fully controlled, what will be available in the future is what those that gain or hold power want to be available. In reality, the future is already here.
Censorship today is everywhere, and is affecting many areas of thought. To paraphrase Ray Bradbury, there are so many ways to burn books without ever starting a fire. Figuratively speaking, all the books have not been burned to date, but many are becoming more and more difficult to find or access, whether hard copies or online. But since most in this country now use only the Internet for so many things, this is going mostly unnoticed. We are living in a period of extreme tyranny, but it is more than that. It is a planned takeover of humanity as a whole, with the stated goal of creating a “Great Reset” that is based upon a technocratic world governing system controlled by oligarchs through smart grid technology.
Obviously, the Internet will be with us, and that can be a great thing, but we can never allow for the few to create and control the entirety of the technological systems. In other words, there needs to be multiple private opposing systems so that one “Internet of things” cannot be susceptible to any oligarchic control. If the ruling class and the state apparatus gain control of information, there will be no information, only propaganda.The State Is Destroying Freedom, Life, and History By Censoring and Eliminating Information and Speech
