'Censorship in the UK: Big Brother is watching and punishing in the former cradle of free speech'. By John Leake
This video substack is very interesting and enlightening and continues great scholarship by John as we fight tyranny.
‘It is no exaggeration to say that the United Kingdom is the cradle of free speech. It was precisely the English Common Law, Parliament, and publishing tradition going back to John Milton in the 17th century that engendered our tradition of free speech. The UK’s Parliament has served as a model institution for representative government throughout the world. Note that the word “Parliament” derives from the French parler—”to speak.” Note also that speaking and thinking are intertwined, because if you cannot speak something, you will also find it very difficult to think about it.
When did the British state decide to throw out this tradition? Nowadays the UK is a place in which Big Brother is Watching and severely punishing those who violate the state’s growing restricted speech code. In the following interview, the British comedian and author, Konstantin Kisin, paints a dire picture of the UK’s new restricted speech dictatorship.’
