PM Jacinda Ardern calls internet freedom a “weapon of war” in most recent UN speech. Calls for a new type of internet with “rules and transparency.”
“How do you tackle climate change if people don’t believe it exists”?
Jacinda, you and your kind decisively lost the argument on internet free speech during covid. You and your kind were wrong about everything–lockdowns, banning early treatment, masks, school closing, mandating vaccines, and more. All wrong. What’s worse is during the pandemic you had free-reign to do what you wanted without being questioned. As a consequence, you and your kind caused a worldwide policy disaster which is still plaguing us today. Its effects will be felt for many generations to come. In contrast, those of us who disagreed with almost everything you forced on your country and the world were polite, reasonable, logical, and far more science- and data-oriented. This contrast between us and you proves decisively that you and your kind lost the argument for controlling internet speech. If our side had been allowed uncurated free speech without censorship and deplatforming, the pandemic would have ended much sooner, early treatment would have ended any need for vaccines, lockdowns would have been stopped or never started, our economies would be fine, and you would not be talking dangerous nonsense at the UN as you are doing above.
