This article is about the importance of free and fair speech in order to preserve discourse and to prevent violence. Without free and fair speech, mankind must resort to oppression, violence, then ultimately war. When war itself becomes prolonged, war must always become total war. There is no historical exception with wars which have spanned multiple years. In the end, everything becomes a target. With this in mind, although I am preparing for it, the failure of discourse must not happen.
"When war itself becomes prolonged, war must always become total war."
We in the West are the children and grand-children of a generation who was miseducated to assume there will be no conflict within our lands within their lifetimes. I myself, even while serving in a NATO army, have had lies fed to me that wars will only be on foreign soil, and total conflict can never happen here. This is the epitome of first world ignorance colliding with arrogance. This is the smugness which has in part, played the role in creating animosity and emnity towards the West from the 'developing' world.
As we inch closer and closer to this being proven false, we have governments and bureaucracies taking tyrannical steps to deceive their own people and supress the ugly truth with censorship, incarceration, and even legitimised murder just to maintain their great, opulent lie. I believe we have reached a point now where bloodshed is unavoidable, but we are still able to minimise that bloodshed, and even salvage our overall social structure. European Nations like England, France, Germany and Sweden are bearing the full brunt of this effect, while the remainder of NATO nations are also feeling it at varying degrees.
"I myself, even while serving in a NATO army, have had lies fed to me that wars will only be on foreign soil, and total conflict can never happen here. This is the epitome of first world ignorance colliding with arrogance. "
The more we censor and silence those who are critical of what our potentially negligent and arrogant governments are doing for the sake of a handful of ultra-wealthy elites, the more we approach the point of civil war and possibly global total war. This makes free and fair speech a prime concern. We have weaponry now which can destroy the surface life on entire continents, and potentially most land-borne life altogether on the planet. Discourse must not fail. If it does, all mankind fails. So be it by natural law.
This is why I am proud to be a part of the Underground Social Network. Our prime directive is to preserve free and fair speech at least for Canadians. I shouldn't have to explain how other platforms have been failing badly at this, because I believe all of you are here for the same reasons we have created this social network. There is no report button, so no flagging or brigading is possible. All we are concerned about is criminal activity. Keep it legal, and there will be no problems.
