Default Why is 'free thought' ridiculed, challenged, and threatened when a person is opposed

Why is 'free thought' ridiculed, challenged, and threatened when a person is opposed to the 'mainstream-narrative'?

remains fixed (degree allowable by 'economic recession/expansion')
remains a variable
dependent on a 'controlled' system of information dissemination

What happens when 90% of the media is controlled/owned by (6) corporations?
What happens when those same corporations are operated and controlled by a political ideology?
What happens when the news is no longer free from bias?
What happens when the news is no longer reliable and independent?
What happens when the news is no longer trustworthy?
What happens when the news simply becomes an extension/arm of a political party?
Fact becomes fiction?
Fiction becomes fact?
When does news become propaganda?
Identity creation?
How does the average person, who is under constant financial stress (by design), find time to research and discern fact v fiction?
Majority of people more prone to believe someone in power sitting behind a big brand ‘news’ name?

Do people [human psyche] tend to follow the ‘majority/mainstream viewpoint’ in fear of being isolated and/or shunned?
‘Mainstream’ is used for a reason
Why do ‘mainstream’ media heads, within different orgs, always use the same keywords and/or catch phrases?
Coordinated? By who? Outside entity providing instructions?
Do they count on the fact that people [human psyche] are more prone to believe something if heard over-and-over again by different ‘trusted’ sources?
Do ‘echo chamber’ tactics provide validation / credibility to the topic/point being discussed?
Threat to intellectual freedom?


Would control over these institutions/organizations allow for the mass control of a populations viewpoint re: a desired topic?
THINK BLM PUSH EVERY 4-YEARS.

Why, after the election of 2016, did Democrap’s and media corps jumpstart a divisive blitz intended to create falsehoods re: illegitimacy of election, character assassination of POTUS through sexism, racism, every other ‘ism’?
How much of the population still believes POTUS colluded w/ RUSSIA due to MSDNC 365-blitz?
No MSDNC retraction of POTUS_RUSSIA collusion narrative

why?
Pre/post 2016 election?
Why were violent terror orgs such as Antifa immediately created/funded and allowed to operate within Democrap controlled cities safe-zones

Why were these orgs tasked w/ immediate intimidation/shut down of any pro-POTUS rallys and/or events?
Why were marches immediately organized to counter and silence pro-POTUS rallys and/or events?
Why were marches immediately organized which divided people into sex/gender, racism?
When you control the levers of news dissemination, you control the narrative.
Control of the narrative = power

When you are blind, what do you see?
They want you divided.
Divided by religion.
Divided by race.
Divided by sex.
Divided by political affiliation.
Divided by class.
When you are divided, and angry, and controlled, you target those ‘different’ from you, not those responsible [controllers].
Divided you are weak.
Divided you pose no threat to their control.

When ‘non-dogmatic’ information becomes FREE & TRANSPARENT it becomes a threat to those who attempt to control the narrative and/or the people.
When you are awake, you stand on the outside of the stable group-think’ collective, and have ‘free thought’.
"Free thought" is a philosophical viewpoint which holds that positions regarding truth should be formed on the basis of logic, reason, and empiricism, rather than authority, tradition, revelation, or dogma.

THIS REPRESENTS A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO THE CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

“All that was great in the past was ridiculed, condemned, combated, suppressed — only to emerge all the more powerfully, all the more triumphantly from the struggle.”
― Nikola Tesla

Liberals do not believe in free speech or free thought for anyone but themselves. This has always been true. Liberals always lie and always try to destroy the lives of people who tell the truth.

Well now, this is a post I can get behind. All true, to the point, and short.

As I often post....i have a problem with the terminology. Leftist, Liberal (and, often, Democrat). Are all leftists liberals? Are all Liberals commie wannabes? Who is a “leftist” anyway? Left of what? What is the benchmark for when one becomes a leftist (or a liberal)?
There are some “conservatives” whose beliefs would make Attila the Hun look like a leftist. Those leftist/commie/marxists.....I cannot think of a political philosophy that is less “liberal” than Maxist communism.

As to the media being biased....I agree. All media is biased. That news source that you trust is just as biased as the source that you criticize. Once the “facts” have been handled by someone else, they have a spin that cannot be removed. That is why I often concern myself with “how do you know what you are reading is more accurate than what you condemn?”

Very insightful.
You could make a case that the shift toward “normalcy” has left these old fashioned “radicals” outdated. Their political ideas have been co-opted by operatives whose purpose is more evil, more sinister.....the breakdown of society for no political purpose...only destruction for its own sake. Burn, baby, burn!
Wrap your head around that.
