The NATO Elephant In The Room

My problem with this is the same problem I've been having with every "crisis" for years, especially pronounced since 2015 and Trump.

Approved Narrative Only.

Back in the day—even though the media was left and overwhelmingly Democrat—there was only the prevailing narrative. Even to Democrats, the notion of Approved Narrative would have seemed as something straight out of the Soviet Politburo.

And yet here we are, living in a Western time and place that seems so fucking weird, for lack of scientific or social terminology. Who have thought we'd be here in a million years where, because the force of dissenting opinion the biggest tech-platforms for free speech have become the Soviet Politburo? We don't have words for it because to a man, nobody envisioned it.

...Which tells you something. Dissenting opinion in the ways, strength, and breadth we have it was always there. Before, it was simply edited out and ignored. But when social media came around, all bright eyed about giving everyone a voice, they ended up noticing it was fucking huge and plus: the dissenting voices were far better at conveying their ideas than was the general fucktard scene of leftists and Democrats. They got embarrassed.

The rest is history and here we are.
