Today’s video is from the Patreon archives. It was recorded 6 months ago, hence the year 2020 in the title, but the message remains the same. Brave New World is here. What are we going to do about it?
We’re living in a time when our very words are policed. “Speaking your mind” carries consequences (as is proven by the fact that YouTube demonetized this video ). Political correctness is none other than the “newspeak” spoken of in George Orwell’s 1984. If you ask me, anything that is aligned with the word “political” can’t be a good thing.
Think about it.
My kids spent the week at VBS, and I feel like I was the one running around all week. We just returned from the closing picnic, where I spent over 2 hours trying to keep track of 7 kids, and I am exhausted.
So, without further ado, let’s get on with this week’s links!
