Alex Jones Banned

Read Scott Horton's new book Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan

Alex Jones was banned on YouTube, Facebook, Apple, etc.

I have two questions:
1) How does it work out that he was banned all on the same day?  Do these companies share a censorship office?  Is banning Jones a political statement which they coordinated?  Think about that, hm.

2) Anyone who says it’s good to kill and die for America, you know because of freedom of speech, remember to look closer at how censorship is subtly imposed in America.  Why is Jones banned now, after all these years?  He helped get the wrong people elected, and hey midterms are coming up.

Elections are free in America.  Speech is free in America.  But when free speech causes free elections to have the wrong outcomes – well, there’s an establishment to spend money and hire goons to shut it down.  Which is why non-establishment voices usually end up only being crazies.  Reasonable, meaningful voices don’t last long.

Re: The LP Mises caucus.  Hey guys (especially Jason Stapleton types)!  If you succeed in becoming a driving force within the LP, and the LP successfully gets like a 5% in the vote or into a debate or something, I guarantee someone will come after you.  Look at what happened in the LP last time with campaign managers being bought off and sabotaging things.  Look at the path of Glenn Beck’s life and career.  Look at Julian Assange.  Don’t stop what you’re doing, just get ready.

Finally, hey look Scott Horton was banned from Twitter.  Hmm, shocking.

Anyway, I’m a cynic.  When Ron Paul’s campaign sold my info to Mitt Romney because I donated to Ron in 2012, that was the last straw that made me realize that this political system won’t allow change.  We’re never going to fix this with our vote, neither with our voices.  Yes, I was brought in on the “Ron could win or something, or end up in the cabinet” train.  The “winning in politics matters” Beltway baby train.

We’re in a “remnant” situation, and we’re writing for people 100-200 years from now.  And maybe we can block some minor wars and stuff.
