This isn't the first time a capitalist elite has concluded this. America, Canada, Australia and Israel were all created by a mixture of fear and ignorance. It's a winning formula from the past that comes back in style whenever we're on the verge of transforming into something better than capitalism and consumerism.

Yep, they cannot win a honest and open discussion any more, so they decided to apply their old and discredited Bolshevik censorship. "Freedom" was just a game, this game does not work any more for their interests, so they are ready to sacrifice it.
The Soviets had the full control over every media and every institution, but they lost the control of the minds of people and at the end the apparatchinks and their propaganda became a laughing stock.
You cannot control the mind of people with such primitive and discredited methods, you cannot change their opinion this way... except low-IQ-people
The globalist elite is in panic, they are so desperate that they now have to apply totalitarian methods and they hope that this can prolong their agony.
