In the war for the First Amendment, Big Tech has chosen a side: outright suppression of information is justified by a purely self-serving moral imperative.
YouTube, perhaps the most egregious tyrant in the space (given the power of video as a communication medium), recently decided that all medical information that it, in its sole discretion, deems “anti-vaccine” will be banned from the platform.
The biggest video platform in the world just banned all dissenting opinion in the midst of the most sensitive global debate in the history of mankind.
YouTube plans to crack down on all channels that promote vaccine skepticism, including popular channels like Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Joseph Mercola. Dr. Mercola has been encouraging holistic and natural remedies to medical issues for years, always to the cheers of liberal health advocates who preferred to try something natural before simply pumping themselves full of prescription medications. Now that Big Pharma has captured the minds of those once-liberal thinkers, Mercola has been labeled a danger, all for the crime of encouraging listeners to take vitamins, minerals, and immune-builders.
YouTube will also delete any suggestion that a commonly-used vaccine presents any negative side effects whatsoever. Examples of content that won’t be allowed on YouTube include claims that the flu vaccine causes infertility and that the MMR shot, which protects against measles, mumps, and rubella, can cause autism, according to YouTube’s policies.
That’s right, Big Tech will label you a threat if you raise any question about your own health in response to a vaccine. They are essentially establishing a precedent in which any government-approved foreign substance can be administered into your body, and dissenting against it makes you the threat.
The solution here is easy and effective: move on from Big Tech platforms. Like a diet, it will be difficult to give up the high of junk food at first, but you’ll eventually be enjoying a life free from the shackles of true totalitarianism. They already think they’re better than you; what’s stopping you from proving them wrong?
