So it’ll be one of those videos where I’m gently tiptoeing and caveating my way through it while still worrying a bit about that fallen log in the log store Hey I’m all over the Uk.

Kremlin-backed media outlets have been banned throughout the European Union, both on television and on apps and online platforms now obviously with the terrible war in Ukraine with putin’s monstrous actions that leading to the death of Ukrainian people. People the same as you and I who have the right to live who have the right to freedom who have the right to sovereignty and democracy. You would think anything that we do is deemed necessary and is vital and as. As it’s leading to Ukrainian people being safe and this war being short and the best possible outcomes of Ukrainian people Any action that you take is understandable. However, I will say that don’t you think I’ll just decide for myself What propaganda is of course Russia today a state-funded Russian Tv station is gonna like um I imagine support opinions that are convenient for Russian agenda.
But I Suppose Another Thing You Might Say
is Russian today. He might have a different perspective from Western media which I’m sure are completely free from propagandist agenda and the way that they’re sponsored and the way that they’re funded and the people that sit on their boards Yeah none of that could lead to particular perspectives being highlighted could it the federal government is putting pressure on social media platforms to block Russian media Twitter Historically, the last of the major. platforms to jump on any new internet censorship escalation is now actively minimizing the number of people who see Russian media content saying that is reducing the contents visibility and taking steps to significantly reduce the circulation of this content on Twitter. This is why I think it’s dangerous to get into this kind of simplistic sanctimonious pious certainty moral certainty and this is wrong. This is wrong.
Were Doing I Feel That Were Dealing
with a complex and nuanced situation what’s not complicated. It’s wrong that people in Ukraine are suffering it’s wrong that putin has invaded Ukraine, but when it gets to controlling information man I’m not so sure that I like that because what’s being established is a principle now during Russia’s egregious attack on Ukraine we’re gonna ban all Russian media because you might get confused you don’t know how to discern information you’re an idiot. That’s basically how governments operate right? Can you imagine a situation down the line where other forms of speech might suddenly be forbidden and censored and annexed because I can swear is also placing warning labels on all Russia-backed media and delivering a pop-up message informing you that you are committing wrong think if you try to share or even like a post linking to such outlets on the platform. It has also placed the label Russia affiliated media on every tweet made by the personal accounts of employees of those platforms baselessly giving the impression that the dissident opinions tweeted by those accounts are paid Kremlin content and not simply their own legitimate perspectives that shut down any opinion coming out of Russia, including potential dissident opinions. Criticisms of Russian actions we read on my podcast under the skin with Janice Marafakis, a letter from Russian citizens outright condemning.
Action Saying Theyre Against It That These
are the actions taken on behalf of Oligarchs, the kind of thing that any right–minded person would think about any aggressive war on ordinary people and that kind of information that would be badged up as Caitlyn Johnson says wrong think also if you prohibit conversation what solution is there going to be then, if you forego diplomacy communication the possibility of common ground being found. They’re not monstering and monstifying people from other territories accepting that there are good and bad people everywhere that the line between good and bad as the Russian right of Sultan isn’t said the line between good and evil runs not between nations or religions and creeds, but through every human heart by not acknowledging your own fallibility and your own flaws by simplifying arguments to good and bad you prevent diplomatic convivial collegiate solutions and require. Is an ongoing conflict because there’s no bloody intercommunication Even Solster Nietzsche won’t be like salsa, where is he from where Russia? I mean he was critic No I don’t hear it vetoed. Some are complaining that this new label has led to an online harassment amid the post-9 11 like anti-russia hysteria. This is all on top of all other drastic escalations in censorship which came roaring in at the beginning of the Ukraine War for years.
s lawmakers have been using threats of profit-destroying consequences to pressure silicon Valley companies into limiting online speech in a way that aligns with the interests of Washington effectively creating a system of government censorship by proxy, so it doesn’t even have to become legislated pressure can be applied and it will be privately undertaken and what does that mean no democracy it would appear that we’re seeing a new expansion of. and the imperial media are pushing for more articles and news segments Warning of the sinister threat posed by Russian propaganda to misinform and divide Western populations using the internet are being churned out at a rate that’s only likely to increase as this latest narrative management campaign gets into full gear. So we’re not saying that Russia are good. We’re not saying that putin is good.
Were Not Saying That This War
is anything other than terrible and utmost in all of our consideration should be the suffering of Ukrainian people, but like other recent events. If this tragedy is used to benefit the interests of the powerful in subtle ways that may not be revoked after the crisis. I’d stay alert if I were you as tends to happen whenever a consensus begins to form that a certain category of speech must be purged from the Internet Imperial. Spin meisters are already working to expand the definition of Russian propaganda, which must be purged from the internet to include independent anti–imperialist commentators do you remember during the pandemic, which was like literally yesterday or whatever but no one talks about anymore that there was a point where the literal dictionary definition of anti-vaxx changed from being you know anti-vaccines to anti-vaccine mandates so language is used in peculiar ways. This is when you know you’re in a peculiar situation.
I Know A Lot Of You Aint Super
fans of Chomsky but i’ll just at this point cite him in a manner that you know is one of his most famous quotes and you guys might like it. The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum Even encourage the more critical. people the sense that there’s free thinking going on while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate not to mention the elitist assumption that you are unable to discern what information is good for you have you not seen enough from your leaders In recent years to know that they are not morally superior to you. I come from Uk we had our government party in their way through the whole coronavirus pandemic, while people weren’t allowed to leave their homes so that’s the reality of what we’re dealing with not some superior species well. We can look at Russia today, and we can see that that’s wrong those idiots, though they won’t understand they get all carried away and go all Russian by morning.
Oh If They See That Theyll Be Scoffing
down struggling off. By 9am and it’s not even a breakfast dish Artie’s audience makes up about 0. 4 percent of Tv viewing in the Uk. Oh no. This phenomena it’s the new squid game Russia today No one’s interested in it something to worry about it’s establishing a precedent Oh Yeah shut it down shut it down it’s too confusing this the exercise of control is de facto elitism It’s de facto aristocracy you can’t decide you don’t know what’s good for you poor things just sit down watch the television shut up we’ll do the thinking Oh they’re either strong enough This isn’t about rt.

Its About The Agenda To Continually Expand And
normalize the censorship of unauthorised speech normalize it we just accept that that’s what you do you carry a passport You do as you’re told you don’t watch that kind of media is that the world you want to live in well. If it isn’t stay very very present because you’re being walked into it that’s what it was about when they were pretending. It was about the need to fight coveted misinformation before that and when they were pretending. It was about the need to fight U. s extremism before that and when they were pretending.
It Was About The Need To
defend election security before that and when they were pretending. It was about the need to fight Russian propaganda the first time before that one cycle back round again like flares. The virulent post-911 like hysteria about Russia that’s been. by one-sided mass media reporting on the war and by the five years of fact,-free conspiracy mongering which preceded it has created an environment where you’ll get shouted down on social media for voicing any opinion about this conflict apart from saying Putin invaded because he is evil and hates freedom voices calling for diplomacy and de-escalation are being systematically drowned out.
Meanwhile, Youve Got Massively Influential Pundits
like Sean Hannity calling for a direct Nato air strike on a Russian military convoy in Ukraine without the slightest risk of losing his immense platform for advocating a move that will probably lead to a very fast very radioactive Third World War Yeah, If you get a sense of something sets of people advocating for a nuclear war. I think can we agree that that would be a bad thing on the other side of the illusory U. s partisan divide you’ve. Like Richard Engel and Clint Watts also calling for direct hot war with Russia? Oh so
