The Twitter Files, by Mike Whitney

Twitter epitomizes the destruction by government of legally recognized free speech via the machinations of corporate proxies. From Mike Whitney at unz.com:

 

“The idea here is to come clean on everything that has happened in the past in order to build public trust for the future.” Elon Musk, Free Speech Absolutist
