Spotify has decided to go along with the totalitarianism being shoved on everyone on this planet. The company will not outright censor but will help the government by adding “content advisories” to anything that goes against the official narrative.
Spotify CEO Daniel Ek has announced these new policies in response to the Joe Rogan uproar from branch Covidians. The company will start adding “content advisory” to any podcast episode that touches on Covid-19, directing users to “trusted sources” on the pandemic, such as information shared by public health authorities, as well as by “scientists” and “academics,” CEO Daniel Ek announced on Sunday.
While this is not outright censorship, and the “advisories” tend to have the opposite effect that authoritarian dictators want (people want banned information more than anything) Spotify will bow and lick the hand that feeds them.
In addition, the service will make sure that creators “understand accountability” if they release content deemed in violation of the platform’s rules. The rules, which were made public on Sunday, described as “dangerous” content that dismisses Covid-19 as “a hoax” and “promotes or suggests” that coronavirus vaccines “are designed to cause death.” So, once again, anything that goes against official government propaganda will be censored, and Spotify is making people aware of it.
Promoting the concept of natural immunity as a substitute for vaccines – that is “encouraging people to purposely get infected with Covid-19 in order to build immunity to it” – has also made the blacklist. Even though study, after study has already confirmed natural immunity to any virus is always far superior to any kind of temporary vaccine-induced immunity, of which the rulers themselves have already said, doesn’t even exist.
Is Spotify going to censor the CDC director now, who plainly said the “vaccines” don’t prevent transmission, and therefore, don’t prevent infection? Those are the words straight from a member of the ruling class’s mouth.
It’s not clear how exactly Spotify would punish individual violations, saying it would “keep context in mind” when unleashing sanctions. However, the rules stipulate that violation of Spotify’s Covid-19 policies may result in the content that runs afoul of the rules being scrapped. “Repeated or egregious violations” may lead to permanent suspension.
In his statement on Sunday, Ek explained that what caused him to introduce the changes was “the feedback over the last several weeks,” apparently referring to the public criticism of Spotify’s number-one podcaster Joe Rogan, who is accused of spreading Covid-19 misinformation through his show. –RT
Although, we could simply ask when, in all of human history, have those who called for censorship ever been the good guys? Just some food for thought as we navigate tyranny in 2022.
Members of the ruling class from other countries are calling on Spotify to ramp up their censorship campaign as well. Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle want people silenced too. In a statement released on Sunday through their US-based non-profit Archewell, the pair called on Spotify to step up its response to the misinformation, calling for “changes.”
