It’s not just Facebook, Twitter, Google, and the Democratic Party fighting tooth and nail to end free speech, hide the truth, and control precious narratives to serve their own leftist and globalist agendas.  Almost everyone with a little power wants complete Orwellian control to censor the internet.  There is nothing new about this; dictators wanted it in the 1930s, Orwell warned us it was coming in the 1940s, and coronavirus merely gives a new excuse for justifying it in 2020.

I saw this at Zerohedge.com but the original articles are cited below:

Authored by Caitlin Johnstone via Medium.com,

Neoconservative publication The Atlantic has published an article authored by two university professors titled “Internet Speech Will Never Go Back to Normal”, subtitled “In the debate over freedom versus control of the global network, China was largely correct, and the U.S. was wrong.”

Fmr. Bush admin lawyer/current Harvard Law prof Jack Goldsmith goes full-Thomas Friedman, credits China’s enlightened authoritarian approach to information as “largely right” and laments the US’ provincial fealty to the First Amendment as “largely wrong.” https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/04/what-covid-revealed-about-internet/610549/ 

“Silicon Valley tech giants are collaborating with western governments to censor speech. The only difference between this article and something you might read on some libertarian website is that this article argues that all of these regulations on speech are a good thing.”

I will admit there are times, when through OUR OWN common sense, we should refrain from fully exercising our free speech when we realize that what we could say might do more harm than good.  But in general, the only reason to limit free speech through new laws is to control narratives and distort and cover-up the truth.
