I started to see reports from other people suggesting the censorship was a glitch.
Glitch or not though, it does show us exactly what things have come to. One of my Twitter accounts was blocked as a result of a sarcastic remark I made, and remains so as long as they think they will get a confession and an apology from me.
I've already self-quarantined most of the comments I would otherwise make on CBCs website given my experiences with that Sovietized information and opinion venue. The reports of demonetizations, and now summary executions of certain videos on YouTube are a daily affair.
Glitch or no glitch, we are now living in a censorious nightmare. Some reports I saw said that the glitch was the result of human censors being sent home for the Coronaville holiday and the robots decided to have a party. That doesn't make me feel much better.
What I am afraid it will come down to is a return to the dark days of writing letters to the editor and having some human censor there decide whether your two cents shall be permitted to see the light of day.
On the bright side, imagine what if might have been like of our roads were heavily populated with self-driving cars!

At about 7:15 this evening, I tried to post a link to Facebook and I received the message, "Your post couldn't be shared because it goes against our Community Standards," and the text I wrote disappeared into the ether.
This was the first time I ever received such an intervention from Facebook.
I prefaced the link with some remarks about the brief respite we've all had from the deluge of climate propaganda as the virus scare has reached epidemic proportions.
This morning, for example, I wrote on Facebook, with respect to the reactions to the virus panic, "Greta's dream world is becoming a reality."
At about 7 p.m., I watched James Corbett's newest report, "CORONAVIRUS AND CLIMATE CHANGE."
It's very interesting, so I decided to share it on Facebook only to discover that this video goes against Facebook's "community standards."
Even though I am a boomer, I haven't yet felt any real fear over this virus, but after I watched Corbett's report my blood ran cold. And then when I got silenced by Facebook, I had fire running in my veins.
It feels like the walls are really closing in.
For anyone who is interested, I have embedded the offending video here,
