    Well, I was only talking about the communist level censorship. A lot of other things have definitely gone to shit

    Oh, it's not just the elected officials anymore Coach, they're going after the electorate now. ESG, Social Credit Scores, etc. It's already here.

    Oh, I bet they can and do do it in his country too. But he has the magical solution of shutting his eyes and sticking his fingers in his ears.

    It's Italy, waddayathink?

    I do ignore most of the political events in my country. It's nothing but a puppet show and has been for decades. It's not a solution, but I can't solve this problem because I have no control over it. I have control over my own life and decisions, or at least I try.
    I believe ignoring them is the first step to eliminating them. People care too much, they involve emotions and they become manipulable or manipulative. I've expressed my opinion on governments many times. This is what happens.

    This seems quite obvious. The IRS is how you control a population. Itís not cops storming your house. That wonít happen on a broad scale. But insidiously harming the middle class, who has fundamental ideals of ďdeath, taxes, etc.Ē could be crippled by the IRS.

    I know nothing (except that masks donít work) and I just ponder this stuff.

    I've thought for a few years now that the actual push to get the average person on board with "communism" (really technocracy) would come not by way of massive welfare programs and universal basic income, but by getting enough of the populace on the government dole as employees. Restrict private sector job opportunities while maximizing public sector make-work jobs.

    How many thousand IRS agents did the Democrat Party just hire? They're not just packing the court.

    The following article is a fairly long read (the audio sounds like a robot), but makes a decent attempt at using Mayer's work to compare Nazi Germany to the last few years.

    Not only that, they make in so absurdly difficult to start a business yourself. This IRS shit is going to make that even worse.
