It might take a second for the implication in the soft-spoken video to sink in, but when it does … whoa nellie.
Censorship, propaganda, and manipulation are a subtle business. Sure, popular culture depicts them as heavy handed and overt, but as we all know from the last 7 years of it, it’s actually pervasive and insidious. In fact you might say the popular perception of it as easy to spot is itself propaganda and manipulation.
But what you see in this video? It’s massive on a scale never before possible in history, but not undreamt.
We are witnessing Google’s real-time censorship of the term “mass formation psychosis” as mentioned by @RWMaloneMD on @joerogan podcast. Don’t let them get away with it! Listen to the episode for yourself. pic.twitter.com/wvvmN6X3Uw

And there’s more:
Google’s first search result points you to a YouTube video that tries to discredit the ‘mass formation psychosis’ theory as a ‘new far right buzzword’

They are silencing Malone. Not just with overt action like a Twitter ban, but by manipulating the information that one finds about what he has to say, and the very idea of mass formation psychosis itself.
The very actions taken by Google on the subject are examples of the process of bombardment of the population with lies and disinformation. Calling those who object disinformation is part of their disinformation. Banning people, having the press treat those bans as heroic acts by the censors, championing the power of massive corporations and oligarchs — all part of it.
It’s happening in real time. You can watch it with your own eyes. And that doesn’t slow it down at all.
