It is not hyperbole to state the loss of free speech in America would be the end of society as we know it. It’s the linchpin that keeps tyranny from engulfing the world. If it is removed, all of the wheels come flying off.
Elon Musk has been fighting to maintain digital free speech since before he purchased Twitter. Even those of us who are concerned about his other interests such as transhumanism and artificial intelligence must admit that his free speech fight is worthwhile. While the vast majority of billionaires are busy spreading globalism, increasing their riches, or both, Musk seems uniquely poised to take on our enemies with his financial power.
His latest declaration on Twitter is spot on and encapsulates the importance of free speech in America in 23 words:
This is a battle for the future of civilization. If free speech is lost even in America, tyranny is all that lies ahead.

Free speech is more than just an avenue of expression. It allows accountability that isn’t unique to the United States. This is why the Chinese Communist Party and other entities desperately police speech and do whatever they can to subvert it as a freedom in the United States. It’s also why their proxies among American leftists are so adamant to oppose Musk in his quest.
As biologist Colin Wright noted on Twitter:
Like Musk, Wright is 100% correct.
If the left actually wanted to police “misinformation” and “disinformation”, that would be great, if it was even possible. But, we can clearly see that is not their agenda. The benefits of HCQ and ivermectin, the hazards of the vaccine and Hunter’s laptop, to name just a few, were harshly suppressed by the left, but none of that was untrue. In fact, it was suppressed without even trying to determine if it was true; it merely contradicted the leftist mantra.
It is pleasing and reassuring to see the left throw such a fit simply because Musk is not going to suppress ideas just because they aren’t totally leftist. But, if is a danger, because since the left never suffers consequences for their actions, there is no limit to what they will attempt in retaliation.
