In tandem with the federal government, social media companies like Twitter and Facebook blocked key information about lockdowns, face masks and the "vaccines" that, had more people been able to access said information, far fewer people would have succumbed to death.
It turns out that the so-called "virus" killed very few, if any, people. It was everything else that was responsible, from the fear and hysteria to the forced social isolation to having to wear a piece of cloth and plastic over one's breathing holes that contributed the most to people dying.
Errant hospital protocols (i.e., remdesivir and ventilators) also killed many thousands, if not millions, of people. And Big Tech did its part to keep the truth about this hidden by labeling all warnings shared online as "disinformation."
"Legions of doctors stayed quiet after witnessing the demonization of their peers who challenged the COVID orthodoxy," the Journal reported about the matter. "A little censorship leads people to watch what they say. Millions of patients and citizens were deprived of important insights as a result."
"Health authorities and TV doctors insisted young people were vulnerable, demanded toddlers wear masks, closed schools, beaches and parks, and were loath to contemplate crucial cost-benefit analysis. The economy? Mental health? Never heard of them."

Then there was all the censorship of truthful information about ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) that deprived the masses of simple, safe and effective remedies for COVID that fueled the fires of death across the land.
Meanwhile, the government poured $6 trillion into all sorts of other remediations, including Operation Warp Speed and the train wreck that became of all that, with tens of millions of people developing various side effects or dying as a result.
These shots are certifiably useless when it comes to actually stopping the spread, but that never stopped the government or the media or social media from pushing them and pushing them and pushing them. The massive public health costs of the fallout from this jab push have only just begun to manifest.
The worst year for excess mortality, in fact, was 2021, the year of the "vaccine." Prior to that, barely anyone was dying from actual COVID, even though the media was pretending as though people were dropping dead in the streets all over the place from some phantom contagion.
"Excess mortality in most high-income nations was worse in 2021 and 2022 than in 2020, the initial pandemic year," the Journal explained. "Many poorer nations with less government control seemed to fare better. Sweden, which didn't have a lockdown, performed better than nearly every other advanced nation."
"After navigating 2020 with relative success, young and middle-age healthy people in rich nations began dying in unprecedented numbers in 2021 and 2022. Health authorities haven't focused enough on this cataclysm of premature death from non-COVID heart attacks, strokes, pulmonary embolisms, kidney failure and cancer."
Even despite all the censorship, the truth is still getting out, thanks to the power of the internet. Authorities recognize this, which is why they are attempting to crack down even more on free speech.
"Digital censorship is their response to this crisis of authority," is how the Journal op-ed put it.
Censorship prevents the truth from getting out, which can lead people to make deadly, misinformed decisions for themselves. Learn more at Censorship.news.
