Last week PayPal, an online service for making and receiving payments, announced that at PayPals sole discretion $2,500 would be seized from accounts of those PayPal decided were guilty of spreading misinformation. Misinformation is whatever some speech control office at PayPal doesnt like or dissent from official narratives. In other words, PayPal announced a policy of thought control as described in George Orwells 1984.

Moreover, $2,500 would be seized for each bit of misinformation, apparently even for errors resulting from being misinformed or from misunderstanding. If an account holder spreads misinformation twice, $5,000 is seized; ten bits of misinformation costs the account holder $25,000. Since the definition of misinformation is at PayPals sole discretion, it wouldnt be long before PayPal, faced with missing its quarterly expected profits, would jack up its earnings by seizing peoples accounts.
It is unclear how a person spreads misinformation on a payments mechanism. Does it mean that spreading misinformation means donating to an organization that challenges official narratives? Does it mean that PayPal would have an army of employees watching social media comments of account holders and reading their emails?
The first seizure was in England where the robbed account was that of the Free Speech Union. It caused an uproar and protests from Members of Parliament and PayPals former president, and a couple of days later PayPal said that PayPals announcement that it was going to seize money from customers accounts for spreading misinformation was itself misinformation. sputniknews.com/20221010/paypal-says-it-never- intended-to-fine-customers-2500-for-misinformation-1101700510.html
Think about this for a moment. If PayPal can seize $2,500 from your account because some woke freak in PayPals Thought Control Police Force finds your opinion offensive, so can your bank, your 401k, your IRA, your investment account. Your credit card company can bill you $2,500 for each disapproved statement and turn your account over to bill collectors when you dont pay. Maybe your car and house will be seized. Once central banks impose digital money on their insouciant populations, people can be robbed at will by every approved party for every imaginable offense.
A Fish Rots From the Head
Where did PayPal get the idea that it can seize the money of people whose statements it disapproves? Obviously, they got it from the US government. The US government has seized peoples property because the property facilitated a crime, which means that a crime took place on the property by someone, not necessarily the owner (The Tyranny of Good Intentions by Paul Craig Roberts). The US government seized Venezuelas gold because it disapproved of Venezuelas politics. The US government seized Russias central bank reserves when Russia intervened in Ukraine to protect the Russian population of former Russian territory. US lawmakers want to punish Saudi Arabia for tending to its own interest instead of Washingtons www.rt.com/news/564437-us-lawmakers- punish-saudi-arabia/. The California government wants to steal the medical licenses of doctors who ignored medical protocols designed to serve Big Pharmas profits and instead saved their patients lives www.lewrockwell.com/2022/...-mercola/new-law-censors- doctors-and-suspends-their-licenses/.
It should be obvious that Western Civilization no longer exists. A civilization is defined by its values, such as free speech, and when those values are no longer honored, the civilization no longer exists.
Think about what the US government has done to Julian Assange. His decade long incarceration in the absence of charges, trial, and conviction violates all legal principles that comprise our constitutional protections from arbitrary and unjust treatment by government. It shows how far gone we are that Assanges illegal and unconstitutional treatment continues year after year and produces no outrage from Congress, media, law schools, bar organizations, courts, or the American population. The official narrative is that he is a Russian spy and we have to get him at all cost, including the establishment of precedents that destroy our security from arbitrary and ruthless oppression. The assertion that Assange is a Russian spy is an intentional lie, and for the sake of supporting a lie we are depriving ourselves of our constitutional protections.
The US governments policy of seizing whoevers property it wants to seize is spreading worldwide. If the home of democracy and the rule of law can arbitrarily do as it likes, so can the South African government which says it is considering seizing the farms of white people without compensation www.theepochtimes.com/south-africa-may-soon-take- land-without-compensation_4783318.html? utm_source=News&src_src=News&utm_campaign=breaking-2022-10-10- 2&src_cmp=breaking-2022-10-10- 2&utm_medium=email&est=e8Ef6F%2BGegg%2Bjv7r0fGz8vzogZKJS61mt%2FC79%2Bvb5 5H3iniZtm2oqg%3D%3D. In other words, there is no longer a rule of law. There is a rule of power.
The rule of power is what Putin, Xi, Maduro, and the American and European peoples are up against, and they seem very slow to realize it.
