Censorship, Alas, Works -- And they’re just getting started.

Twitter suspended Canadian feminist Meghan Murphy last week. Her offense? She wrote on the site that “men aren’t women.” A is A. 1 + 1 = 2. Water is wet. In North Korea, students learn that the United States started the Korean War. In Stalin’s Russia, the commissar vanishes from the photograph. In China, the Chinese Communists, not the Americans, deserve most of the credit for defeating Japan in World War II. And in San Francisco, techies with the social skills of Napoleon Dynamite regulate social behavior for the rest of us by insisting not only that men are indeed women but that any contention to the contrary amounts to beyond-the-pale hate speech. Falsehood, not truth, requires censorship to thrive. The immediate effect of Twitter’s suspension involves Murphy enjoying more attention for her ideas. Breitbart, The Christian Post, and National Review all wrote about her ordeal. The longterm effect chills the speech of others and, perhaps even, Murphy as well — if she decides that keeping her Twitter account amounts to a greater good than speaking her mind as freely on that platform. Subconsciously many already tweet not what’s on their mind but with a mind to their digital minders. Anyone attending college during the 1980s or 1990s recognizes the tactics of using attitudinal pressure and outright censorship to nudge — and in some cases Chuck Bednarik decleat — people into political correctness. It took a generation or two, but the corruption of education into indoctrination — with the cooperation of mass media and much else — finally appears in writ large form in society.
