Interestingly enough, this is how the entire Internet was before the likes of Google and Facebook. Corporate and government interests have wonderfully coordinated to destroy free speech and liberty.

The concept and ideas behind voat used to be every day and most everywhere. Not to be confused with the underlying narrative pushed here. Or that the political environment was the same. Yet even those have always existed in some form or fashion on the Internet.

Anyone who says censorship and fascism doesn't exist need simply look at the history of the Internet to be proved embarrassingly wrong.

Ten movies streaming across that, that Internet, and what happens to your own personal Internet? I just the other day got… an Internet was sent by my staff at 10 o'clock in the morning on Friday. I got it yesterday [Tuesday]. Why? Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the Internet commercially.

[…] They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the Internet. And again, the Internet is not something that you just dump something on. It's not a big truck. It's a series of tubes. And if you don't understand, those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and it's going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material

This isn't fascism. I have to always explain this, but I will do it again. Fascism talks about corporatism, this is not the same as corpocracy. Corporatism is about class cooperation, and the government serving as a good faith mediator between big business and the people, in the interests of the nation. Whereas in corpocracy, the government is beholden to the monied interests, it helps big businesses screw over the little people, it puts international profit-making over the interests of the nation-state.

I hadn't heard the term corpocracy before. Are there any reading materials you suggest to learn more about this distinction?

I think voat during the bush era would have been complaining about the wars in the middle east and seemed almost like this was a left leaning website. I considered my self anti big business anti war anti bush crime family, now I 95 percent support trump, shit doesnt make sense.

Hmm even with the patriot act being passed it would be left leaning? Along with the “reason” for going to war?
