Everyone knows that the US Government suborned media companies to limit free speech, but only Twitter has been transparent on the subject. Don’t expect the other social media giants to follow suit in 2023.
LR Podcast, S3E32: Feeding the Totalitarianism with Fear
The “tridemic,” the war in Ukraine, the self-sabotage of our food and energy supplies all have the effect (some might say indented) of increasing the general level of fear and anxiety, something that fuels a totalitarian mass-formation.
Dystopic Journal: Science and Totalitarianism
Totalitarian systems call on their members to defer reason and judgment in crucial areas to an expert class. Those swept up in the mass formation are convinced to place their faith not in God or religion, but experts and science. Just like with religion, this new machine messiah demands sacrifice and a subordination of will to itself.

Things like ESG already control the behavior of individuals indirectly. The aim of the Utopian Left is to extend this sort of control to the individual level. Examples of this can already be seen in such things like vaccine passports and mask mandates. The reliance on technology will be used as a point of control. Access to things like education, online commerce, and entertainment will be subject to an ever-increasing array of rules and regulations. In order to partake in the modern lifestyle, people will be made to trade their freedom and privacy for goods and services.

Independent thinkers question the intentions of others and have a stubborn reliance on facts when it comes to making important decisions for themselves and their loved ones. The leftist elite cannot have anyone questioning their decisions, much less refusing to go along with them. To paraphrase the fascists-- Nothing outside the collective, everything inside the collective, and nothing against the collective. All wants and needs must align with those of the collective.
