Who Will Next Be Removed From The Internet?

Date: Friday, January 15, 2021 8:24 AM EDT

This highly effective censorship machine operates with the active encouragement of deep state bureaucrats and most members of Congress, who are prohibited by the Constitution from abridging free speech directly themselves.

The explicit promise of free speech by the likes of Twitter, in its early days, was the Bait to acquire enough users to attain effective monopoly status. Then the Switch came.

Cryptocurrencies Could Face Internet Blocks

Could a similar Bait and Switch befall holders of internet-based digital currencies such as Bitcoin?

Proponents of cryptocurrency view it as a decentralized tool for avoiding censorship, government regulation, taxation, the banking system, and the depreciation of the U.S. dollar.

But as Bitcoin prices rise and the cryptocurrency gains more widespread acceptance on Wall Street, the banking system, and with payment processors such as PayPal, it risks becoming just another tool for the powerful to wield influence and control.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, for one, is a huge proponent of Bitcoin. The same tech overlord who banned the President of the United States – and whose payment processing company Stripe also cut off Trump’s campaign from fundraising abilities – probably doesn’t like Bitcoin for the same reasons most adopters of it do.

Jack’s own Twitter profile contains no personal information, no statements or links, only a single hashtag: #bitcoin. Perhaps Jack wants to lure people into Bitcoin because he knows that the leading cryptocurrency exchange, Coinbase, is also adept at banning users who engage in unacceptable political activities.

He’s certainly not promoting physical precious metals. Unlike digital coins, gold and silver coins are completely untraceable and censorship-proof.

Holding Non-Electronic Money Helps Protect Your Freedom

Will Big Tech one day decide to crack down on sound money proponents? All it takes is one instance of violence that can be linked to a disfavored political cause to give social media companies, search engines, and web hosts the impetus to ban proponents of that cause.
