There's no denying it - you can't run from it. I think in Europe there was less of this, if Dude is to be believed. Not here, not with the brown shirts you see posting Robert Malone videos on the site trying to convince you that he's the one "lying" or that Jimmy here "is a liar" - all designed to push and validate such obvious, obvious lies. So now it's really only a question of whether the threats turn you or not. We all know it's mostly bullshit, but when someone threatens to take your livelihood away unless you swallow it turns out most will turn. They'll even do so while, initially, feeling a great deal of pain about it. That wears off over time.
Son of a prominent Nazi brags about installing our Prime Minister to destroy our society and democracy, and his browshirts spend the whole day shit-posting on this site about those asking simple questions. Everyone can see how absurd this is now, but weirdly the surreality and absurdness mixed with direct personal threats pumped daily on fake news channels and social media appears to have the effect of freezing most people in fear. That's its intent, and it's what the academic literature predicts. Before we had this real-world experiment verify the more lab-oriented stuff I really didn't believe the Milgram and Standford experiments were representative. Now that we know society and reality reflect these experiments/studies, well, it makes me really sad.
I don't think our species is passing through this time either.
