Cloaking censorship in a defence of the truth is a form of absurdism that only very powerful psychopaths could engage in, writes Rusere Shoniwa. It’s Big Tech’s way of laughing at us.
The left may think the ‘old normal’ is not worth saving, writes Emily Garcia, but the ‘courage to know’ is the only way to create a future free from total psychological manipulation by the elites.
