Glenn Greenwald addresses more attempts to control independent voices on the internet that are not part of the closed propaganda system, this time on Rumble.
Editor’s note: Such attempts were made in England before when the poet William Blake was charged with sedition in 1803 for saying “Damn the King. The soldiers are all slaves.” Yet the U.S. Bill of Rights is based on British common law. So we think that the UK could never do such a thing. But they are, following right along with the U.S. attempts to criminalize dissent and silence independent journalists and voices on the internet who do not follow the party line of the dominant political parties. Even if party lines differ in some ways, in other they are much the same: in supporting Israeli domination and occupation of Palestine,* in sending billions and billions of dollars and more along with more deadly weapons to Ukraine, in being economic neoliberal capitalists, in provoking WWIII, in funding both conventional and nuclear weapons, and refusing to declare a climate crisis, and in some cases refusing to believe it exists even though the weather disruptions worldwide prove that it does.
*Written before the Israel-Gaza armed conflict. According to Al Jazeera (Oct. 20, 2023)
At least 4,137 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli strikes on Gaza since Hamas’s October 7 attack inside Israel, which killed more than 1,400 people.
