Everything has changed. The internet has changed. Instead of information on the rise, we have a brand of censorship and authoritarianism that is far removed from filtering just mere obscenity. In the name of combating our own alleged racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, and any other perceived 'isms' or psychological disorders that offend the sensibilities of so-called progressives, we now have an Orwellian situation where you had better watch not only what you say, but what you think. If we are not able to live in their pristine echo chamber of safe concepts and design we had better shut up, and if we don't shut up, we will trigger them into an epileptic tantrum of violence.
Those with control over media aren't nearly as bad as the useful idiots who instantly believe everything they read and recite from a pedestal of self created superiority. People who act like they have tons of expertise in matters such as national security and monetary policy who actually have about as much as the man who picks up our garbage. And it's not that I look down on the garbageman, its just that he would probably know as much, or maybe more than the moron spouting like an expert on the internet. The biggest difference is that he might not be so cocksure that he has all the answers on the subject after reading an article which is written by some Harvard educated liberal intellectual with no real experiences in the real world.
