#Idea – The Tyrannic Milestone / 17.01.21

Once orthodoxy*
(however defined at the time, its parameters change)
Becomes more important than free discourse
(ie. you are no longer allowed to hold an opinion that differs from the narrowly defined orthodoxy)
Then,
We cross a major milestone on the path to tyranny.

Freedom of expression
(ie. the open expression of freedom of thought)
Is a vital check against tyranny
And the kind of groupthink
That leads to awful things being done
To those on the wrong side of history.

*political correctness/the right way/Goodthink/etc.
