...the more they stay the same.
The last attempt to stop the technological sea-change in the publication and distribution of information did not succeed--it was merely retarded--but I find it hilarious that the new attempt by the elites to do the same thing with regard to the Internet to be so historically-illiterate. They think this is like radio, or television, with its ridiculous start-up costs; it's not, and it ain't even like a basic printing press either. It's dirt-fucking cheap in terms of physical capital; the skills--the human cost--are more expensive (but not for long). That makes it easy as fuck to get into the game.
It is said "The Internet interprets censorship as damage and routes around it." and that's exactly what will happen. Normies may be affected for a year or so until the workarounds get out far enough, but that's about it. Unlike the attempts to suppress the press (literally), this will fail fast and hard. (Online resistance is already significant, and growing.) Aside from the trappings and the words, all that's different is the pace by which this stupidity comes and goes.
It's fucking stupid. Was then. Is now. Will always be. I'll let Dame Bassey take you through the outro here:
