...after reading this i'm surprised that the Trumpists have not found in it another reason to say that our memories of Little Christmas this year, are not their fault.

I totally disagree...

YouTube and the internet have given the people a voice and giving them the ability to be heard.

As a Democrat in the truest sense, as opposed to the bogus ones who call themselves Democrats in the US but are no such thing, I can not concur at all or even in the slightest with any of the sentiments in the OP.

As a libertarian and Republican, a real Republican who opposes the Windsors, who fought against imperialism and slavery, I must say, I may not agree with your opinions or ideas but I will fight and defend your rights to have them.

Half the population have strong views but they dont know what they are talking about. They want to put feelings above facts and logical, rational discourse.

I told you, the colleges have been infiltrated with leftist and the other points of view on the right has been suppressed or purged. This is one reason, they are churning out a bunch of imbeciles with skills that have little or no value in the market. On top of that, you have collusion between big tech and media conglomerates to de-platform ans silence people they politically disagree with, which creates echo chambers and allows nonsense to go unchecked more easily.

This is not limited to education but it extends to the mainstream media as well. These entities have morphed in to corrupt mouthpieces, stuffed with pundits to shill for their parties and ideologies. No longer neutral and reporting facts, or working in the best interest of the citizens. The media are one of the main forces of dividing people.

They are after clicks for advertising revenue too. Unless you are the BBC, you can spew propaganda all you like because their funding is guaranteed by the tax payer..

You think its limited to youtube creators? take a broader point of view. How many companies with a reporting license talk absolute shit? :roll:


I totally agree Max. Well done.

They are trying to purge free speech.
