This is not a new idea. Ardern has been saying for a good while now, since the plandemic in particular, that she and her government are our single source of truth.
She is serious about that. At one point she even told Kiwis not to speak to their neighbours. This all of course flies in the face of community and caring and looks not unlike fascism … parading under the guise of protecting our physical health. No problem however with the rise in numbers of child suicides. That has been sorted however by changing the definition of suicide to ‘accidental death’. And no move towards investigating the rise in NZ’s all cause mortality rate or any possible correlation it may have with the jab rollout. Apart from a recent admission by NZ’s vaccine expert Helen Petousis Harris, that they perhaps didn’t warn us well enough of a possible Myocarditis risk. This also followed a coroner’s ruling that a New Zealander’s death one year ago was caused by the jab. That has been followed by a Bill in Parliament as I write, to tweak the requirements around coroners’ investigations as to ’cause of death’. They are overwhelmed it seems by the sheer numbers of deaths so appear to be attempting to fast track the process.
So Ardern, who is one of Schwab’s global leaders remember, speaks of a need to double down globally on censorship. The perceived need is to censor ‘disinformation’. Could that disinfo include uncomfortable truths like the plight of those who fell ill or died post jab? There were many of those there at the Parliament protest earlier in 2022, totally ignored … ‘kind’ Ardern declined to speak with any of them. Not one, and there were even Medical Doctors there speaking out. She did eventually show her face however, once the protest was disbanded.
It is a global reset the WEF want. By all appearances a dystopian world couched in the kindly terms of ‘being happy’ … but ‘owning nothing’.
Difficult to fathom really isn’t it? That they would actually expect us to see this as a good thing? Even Italy’s PM is resisting.
Below is an article on topic from zerohedge.com
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is the latest liberal leader to call for an international alliance to censor speech. Unsatisfied with the unprecedented corporate censorship of social media companies, leaders like Hillary Clinton have turned from private censorship to good old-fashioned state censorship. Speech regulation has become an article of faith on the left. Ardern used her speech this week to the United Nations General Assembly to call for censorship on a global scale.
Ardern lashed out at “disinformation” and called for a global coalition to control speech. After nodding toward free speech, she proceeded to lay out a plan for its demise through government regulation:
But what if that lie, told repeatedly, and across many platforms, prompts, inspires, or motivates others to take up arms. To threaten the security of others. To turn a blind eye to atrocities, or worse, to become complicit in them. What then?
This is no longer a hypothetical. The weapons of war have changed, they are upon us and require the same level of action and activity that we put into the weapons of old.
We recognized the threats that the old weapons created. We came together as communities to minimize these threats. We created international rules, norms and expectations. We never saw that as a threat to our individual liberties – rather, it was a preservation of them. The same must apply now as we take on these new challenges.Ardern noted how extremists use speech to spread lies without noting that non-extremists use the same free speech to counter such views. To answer her question on “how do you tackle climate change if people do not believe it exists” is that you convince people using the same free speech. Instead, Ardern appears to want to silence those who have doubts.
While referring to a global censorship coalition as a “light-touch approach to disinformation,” Ardern revealed how sweeping such a system would likely be. She defended the need for such global censorship on having to combat those who question climate change and the need to stop “hateful and dangerous rhetoric and ideology.”
“After all, how do you successfully end a war if people are led to believe the reason for its existence is not only legal but noble? How do you tackle climate change if people do not believe it exists? How do you ensure the human rights of others are upheld, when they are subjected to hateful and dangerous rhetoric and ideology?”
That is the same rationale used by authoritarian countries like China, Iran, and Russia to censor dissidents, minority groups, and political rivals. What is “hateful” and “dangerous” is a fluid concept that government have historically used to silence critics or dissenters.
Ardern is the smiling face of the new generation of censors. At least the old generation of censors like the Iranians do not pretend to support free speech and openly admit that they are crushing dissent. The point is that we need to be equally on guard when censorship is pushed from the left with the best of motivations and the worst of means.
As the great civil libertarian Justice Louis Brandeis once said, “the greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.”
