I'm getting conservative Canadian ads on YouTube today for some reason. Bizarre

In the first section of the ad a guy types "communism is evil" out loud and his account is immediately suspended. Even in the socialist bubble I undoubtedly live in online, I see that sentiment expressed every single day.


But always — do not forget this, Winston — always there will be the intoxication of censorship, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of account suspension, the sensation of deplatforming a right-winger who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a social media banning a conservative face — for ever.
