Imagine the lights to everyone’s home controlled by a single switch – under the control of someone else. This is a good – because accurate – way to understand the control exerted by the tech oligarchy – Gurgle, especially – which is part of the same opaque but omnipresent network as the Tube that isn’t Yours – over the information you’re allowed to read and publish.
These digital dictators whose faces you never see decree what you see – and so get to know – by making sure you don’t see what they don’t like.
As they did yesterday.
Just like that – just like throwing a switch – purveyors of Wrongthink, including EPautos and also Breitbart, RedState, Human Events, InfoWars and a number of others just disappeared. If you searched for them by name you got . . . nothing.
Or peripheral things. But not the thing you were searching for.
I typed “Eric Peters Autos” into my sail fawn’s Gurgle search engine – which, curiously enough, every sail fawn sold, regardless of type or make comes embedded with and which you (apparently) cannot un-embed – at around 9 or so in the morning on the 21st, on my way to see my dentist – who refused to see me because I refused to Diaper (see here for more about that). I needed to check something on the site, as I often do during the course of the day. Until yesterday, Gurgle would almost instantly display the site URL as before I finished typing out the entirety of “Eric Peters Autos.”
I typed out the whole thing – and got nothing. The “search” yielded no indication that Eric Peters Autos ever existed. There were some returns to individual old articles of mine; two of my books showed up under my name.
But my eponymous web site had – for all practical purposes – become a digital Non Person.
This lasted for several hours before Gurgle threw the switch from Off to On. Just like that, the Wrongthinkful sites came up again when you search-engined them.
Gurgle, of course, did not have to spell this out. Instead, a nondescript statement was released admitting to “an issue that impacted some navigational and site operator searches” that claimed no “particular sites or political ideologies” were specifically targeted.
It was just a glitch.
One that just happened to be very target-specific. Doubleplusgood “mainstream” media and “authoritative” voices were not, apparently affected. There was no difficulty search-engining Anderson Cooper, for instance – or Huffington Post to “learn more” about the cases! the cases!
Because the truth about the cases! the cases! (that “cases” doesn’t equal deaths) and many other things must be curb-stomped by any means necessary.
As by simply stifling it, which is easy to do when you have your hand on the switch that can turn everything you don’t like off.
Gurgle and the other members of the cartel – just the right word; they operate almost exactly in the same manner, using threats and intimidation except their threats and intimidation tactics are somehow legal – have previously been caught “de-monetizing,” “de-platforming” and “shadow banning” what they consider to be Wrongthinkful. All while claiming to be neutral mediums of dissemination – like a village square – while working 24/7 to erect a Village, in the manner of the classic BBC series, The Prisoner starring Patrick McGoohan.
Everyone in the Village has a number, not a name – and understands who is Number One. You cannot leave the Village; if you try, a creepy blob pursues and envelops you. Everything you do in the Village is watched and listened to – and if you are seen or heard to do anything Wrongthinkful, you are quickly . . . corrected.
This was 1967 – when the BBC still produced what, today, would obviously be considered extremely Wrongthinkful and would be obliged to de-platform itself.
Fast forward half a century and we have Gurgle announcing it will economically kneecap Wongthinkful sites that do not hew to the “ authoritative consensus” about the WuFlu – which means any that question the cases! the cases! and the hand-in-glove demand for Universal Face Diapering, tracking and vaccinations for all.
For a sickness that better than 80 percent of those who have had it never even knew they did (no symptoms) and 99.7 percent not in old folk’s homes who experience mild to moderate symptoms analogous to a bout of the flu – from which they don’t die.
The pressure to prevent that truth from spreading is becoming so obvious – and so extreme – that it beggars references to Orwell’s 1984 and Huxley’s Brave New World, both of which seem almost gentle in comparison.
They, at least, were fictional stories while what is going on now is extremely real.
They are letting us know it is.
Sauron isn’t hiding anymore. Anyone who cares to look can see at this point – and if that’s not enough to get the message across, just flip the switch.
What they did yesterday they could just as easily do today. Maybe tomorrow. Whenever they like.
And that is what they want you to know.
It brings up several questions, including why – how – did a handful of (cough) “private” companies acquire such power over the public square? Why, indeed, does every sail fawn, regardless of make or model, come embedded with the search engines and software of those who control the Village? How come they aren’t just available, among various alternatives – it being up to you to decide which app/search engine/software you want on your phone?
Why is Facebook pre-loaded on every phone and – apparently – impossible (or practically impossible) to delete?
And why do people keep using these “platforms”?
One can still use others – such as DuckDuckGo, for instance. And one can still go directly to the Wrongthinkful sites, just as one can still shop at stores that do not impose Sickness Kabuki on the customers.
The more of us who de-couple ourselves from the entities trying to herd us into a very real Village, the better our chances of not becoming a number – and remaining free men.
