We in Britain claim that we are democratic, we have the right to vote and freedom of choice or so they say! Our government criticize nations like North Korea for not giving people freedom of choice. They tell us that the North Korean government or corrupt, a dictatorship and they claim the North Korean government control all media, TV and employ strict Internet censorship and maybe they do, I don’t know I have never been to North Korea.
I do however live in Britain and everything they are telling us they North Korean government do our government do. The BBC for example are Blatantly Backing Conservatives, its like they are telling us you have a choice vote this strong and stable government or this clown that is going to destroy the economy and therefore your lives. Does that sound like a choice?
Not satisfied with controlling the mainstream media they also employ strict Internet censorship, they tell us it is to combat extremism but NOBODY I know is as extreme as the conservative government. People are dying and living in poverty while our government fund corporate tax evasion, war and nuclear weapon programs (as well as there own high wages topped up by their expenses.) They claim its all fake news and extremism but is it? Because when I read most of this “extremism” I believe I am reading real people speaking about real issues that effect them as individuals. They are simply excising the freedom of speech we don’t have because if they were really fighting against extremism they would be fighting the hate filled Daily Mail or the dumb as fuck Sun newspaper not the people.
What is the point in having the right to vote if half of the argument is censored and unheard?
I believe real freedom of choice comes from freedom to read and watch whatever you want to before making a decision, if the Conservative party are going to simply censor their own population how can people make a decision that represents the way they feel? They can’t.
Censorship is only ever employed due to the fact that the oppressor recognizes they can not win an argument so they silence their opposition. In the other words the Conservatives are not only relying on the corporate media to win this election they are also relying on the people they wage war against to remain silent and if we don’t remain silent they will attempt to silence us with censorship, as so many people in Britain are doing at the moment its time to make some noise.
