We examine the information warfare being waged to enforce a single narrative about the war in Ukraine.

It may be worse than McCarthyism, which was defeated by its own excesses. Today’s information war against individuals and media who do not adhere to the Western-government-enforced narrative on Ukraine is part of a long history in the U.S. of officially crushing dissent. With the advances of technology for both surveillance and censorship, we might be in the most chilling atmosphere yet for thought control. Will it too be brought down by its own excesses?

Discussion begins at 4:00 minutes in.

  3. Inspiring. Hats off especially to Scott Ritter for unflinchingly embracing the reality of the military: killing. No bullshit about “peacekeeping” or “regime change” or “making the world safe for democracy”. There are other, more civilized, more humane, methods of accomplishing those goals, but if we resort to (or consent to) the use of the military, we are condoning killing in our names. Maybe that’s ok, maybe that’s necessary, maybe it’s not, but there’s no point in pretending its anything else.
