It might be that you have made a comment on an internet article page and when you come back later your comment was gone.
Or, you were reading an article in a mainstream news website, but that article was written about a reality that does not exist, obviously to create the message that it is the reality, and your personal views are old, outdated, ... wrong. You just need to fix yourself and think more like the article says is "normal and acceptable", at least according to it's author. This is called "gaslighting".
And gaslighting articles are extremely common nowadays in the accredited media. Who accredited them I wonder?
Whatever, given time people will react, or if banned from reacting, they will find an alternative way to react.
So the next time you see a neo-marxist, neo-feminist, anti-white, or anti-male, or anti-western society, news item, lecturing you - and you scan down to see how many negative comments there are - only to see comments banned, moderated (just try it mate, wink, wink, ha, ha!) or unavailable, here is something you can do:
Great news Labour accepts a new election in December. EU is scared to death, bcos I think a Brexit will trigger a Swexit, Italexit, Frexit, Spanexit in the future. Great Britain will do great in the future and EU knows it.
Greta where did you go?
SD the so called "fascist/nazi/racist/brownshirt" party in Sweden (the soc-dem label them as that bcos they are in panic mode) will soon be the largest party in Sweden. The opinion figures is skyrocketing right now. The Swedish Socialist-Collectivist-Communist-Borg-Brainwashing-Do not care for the Swedish people-Democrats-party is going extinct. Just wait for the economic downturn. It's going to be ugly, but at the same time a huge relief for the common Swedish worker that's been bullied for decades. Enough is enough!
James Corbett has a cynical take on it all, which fits well with my one:
Greta where did you go?
Aha, is there a hickup in climate heaven? Greta didn't show up at a prize ceremony. She and her climate movement got a prize for great effort by Nordic Climate Dudes association can't remember the name.
The dialog between Greta and her parents "No Mom I am not going, it's all fake and I hate it", just speculating by using my intuition.
The UN speak "how dare you" was a blow off top for Greta&Co.
98 detonations in 2019 and 28 explosions the last two months. No it is not Iraq, Syria or Afghanistan it's Sweden.
It's unheard of for a civilized Western country. An alarmbell is ringing in Swedish society, but most are still asleep or afraid to wake up.
KABOOOOM!!! "Oh, this is unacceptable ... zzZzzZZZzzzz ..."
time to wake up if you ask me ...

They'll wake up when the personal pain (injury, loss, theft, damage to self or close family) outweighs the personal gain (social positive credit).
Is there opportunity contained in their distance from reality? The closing of that gap will incur financial costs.

Absolutely, security, alarms, gated community builders, companies dealing with chapter 11 issues etc. Speculating against the Swedish crown like I do by owning gold&silver.
Three more detonations yesterday in my hometown, this is getting creepy. It is as if the authorities has lost all control. Stabbing, shooting and rape everyday in Sweden.
Mother nature is whipping the butt of Sweden pretty hard.
One of these things is not like the other .....
This probably took 200 million to make and another 200 million (or less) to market.
Let's see what the market says to the SJW opinion formers who made it. It's early days yet.
Just saw this link on Drudge.

Grace Randolph on Terminator Woke Fate:
This movie looks like it will lose excess of 120M dollars based on viewership so far.
So are the makes of these "conversation starting" movies getting the hint yet?
Maybe it's beginning.
The Quartering on HBO's decision to not run a new prequel of Game of Thrones, with screenplay by a woke creator.
HBO will run a different Game of Thrones storyline instead, even though 30 million has been put into the overly political/agenda driven version already.
This $30M is now a sunk cost - which gives outsiders good insight into their view of the importance of demographic resistance to tokenistic diversity substitution for established and loved characters.
The audience Get Woke Go Broke rebellion is working .....
Don't watch this GOT stuff but "Coronation Street" doesn't seem to have a problem.
and batwoman all have the same thing going from the "woke" director/ screenwriter, who is driving those businesses into the ground.
Decades of character development and they think the the majority want the characters changed to fit their "woke"world view and they won't mind. On top of that, they think since they are woke they have the right to "preach" and "educate " to the consumer what they will like and if they don't they are wrong and racist.
Like I said in a recent post, my Harrys' razors are as good as the Gillettes' I use to use
What is a good thing about this, is that the discussion takes place about mainstream media entertainment "products".
The middle people, the normies (it's not a disparaging term), are closer to the discussion's subject matter.
That is why the activist leftists went so hard at video gamers Gamergate who were refusing to back down when accused of being racist, mysogynist, even nazi, by the crooked and colluding (all proven) game journalists.
Gamergate was the first time they lost a media battle.
Did you notice that Trump's successful "anti-media" campaign strategy came after Gamergate? This is no coincidence. Political strategists saw what the gaming "community" did to prevent community organizers taking over their meeting places (games and discussion about games).
@SteveW: If "Coronation St" is watched by a boomer demographic (I am not sure but I suspect that's their main target age group), then it is to be expected that it's viewers would be affirmative to TV "messaging" rather than contesting agendas contained within scripts. The boomers fell for the TV mind control completely. They became passive politically and active consumers. Very similar to how the snowflakes fell for mobile phone tech driven messaging and had their lives recruited to a purpose not theirs.
Sequence: New tech, no defences, lost generation, resistance to the abuses of that tech, conversion of the tech to more positive purpose overall.
The boomers and the millennials are approx 40 years apart. I have discussed the exact number (and the built in error margin) in the past in posts about sacred (Christian in this case) texts, and also in early posts about the original Star Wars phenomenal success.
See here is the problem: Leftists started using commerce and personal reputation slurs to get their way in an organized campaign of blackmail.
Using so-called independent groups like ADL, SPLC, etc the left alliance (which is not all atheistic and includes two ME religious components) besmirched their perceived enemies and get them cast out of acceptable society. Well, the virtue signallers duly cast the right out as instructed.
Until Gamers came along and said "I don't care if you call me racist or nazi or mysogynist that means nothing because you are liars". It's my badge of honour! Consider: Isn't that exactly how Trump won?
So, the left told supporters at first to not buy from wrongthinking cake shops and bakeries and even extended that into recruitment for jobs. Now that weapon or tactic too is turned back upon them, and their media who drove the whole thing, are receiving exposure and critical acclaim for it's scurrilious actions.
Remember the title of Vox Day's second excellent book: "SJW's Always Double Down". (If you have not read this and also "SJWs Always Lie" do so)
SJW's Always Double Down is a predictor for planned faux institutional criticism of social justice scripted movies, or later, anything else. And subsequently for AI robotic censorship of anti SJW conversations on the internet which is the modern mass idea marketplace.
Now desperate measures can be expected to follow when a formerly winning side perceives pushback and reversal of it's "progress".
But I currently see law being used against violence (real violence not micro agressions) and incremently leftist violent people are being touched by this. That's the political class getting involved on their own account. Not good if half the demographic decide laws are made for others and not them .... cue entry of face saving justice from stage ... err ... right.
And of course, the madness prior to elections in US has again not failed to disappoint. There will come a "morning after" mentality at the appropriate time, but the social battles will still require to be fought. Boomers won't do it! They support SJW agendas despite criticizing new decadence at the same time. Boomers are two faced and at the same time oblivious to it due to a lifetime of mind manipulative acquiescence. Mind you, they're not unique in that self destructive weakness.

The Rotten Tomatoes score difference at 0:36 is hilarious. I expect the makers didn't pay enough "RT audience adjust" fees.
... this all works better if you pass it on to a friend or ten, asking them to do the same.
Yeah. That's what and who this is for. What the old DOTS forum shoulda, coulda, mighta, ought to have become. We can do it right here and tell people to come and see here what's not where they're at.

I'm not posting it as an advert for the course. But so his sales pitch can be used as a thinking point.
You want to be fit? Eat right or better, exercise well, or more, get adequate or more rest.
But what about you thought? What about you intelligence? Do you simply use it as is? Can it be optimised?
There are things that can be done to make the brain into a better instrument.
All of the above (for body optimisation) apply.
Nutrition for brain; rest; mental exercise.
For a start, begin doing mental maths. In the shop have the total calculated in your head before the cashier scans the items. Use calculator or mobile only for 4 or greater digit calculations, and even then only to check your first mental best shot.
Maps use great brain power. Stop using the digimap when you can safely do so. It makes you a mental invalid. Build your mental map instead. Dogs, cats, bees, birds and other creatures have smaller brains and don't get lost. You can do this. Relegate tech for emergency use.
Balance uses great mental ability. Figure out a personal challenge using balance, whether it be you over a crack in the pavement or a drop of water hanging from a pinhead. Watch a few driving under influence field sobriety tests and make your own for sober mental-physical exercise.
Language and body language interpretation also use mental centres. Read more and get away from simple-speak mass media low language level communications.
Sugar is a brain toxin, as are sweeteners, alcohol, drugs and so on. We all require some "treatment", and "self treat", but consider long term consequence of short term decisions. Gluten intake can become a brain toxic matter for some people. Reduce or eliminate brain toxins.
You will find, if you begin some mental exercise, that you can actually detect how much sharper you've got. Surprisingly soon! You see through circumstances that would have been more opaque previously. You begin to anticipate instead of being surprised.
And that's what insight is. Better use of the information and brain power available, to work at a higher level of consciousness. Note I did not lead with that sentence! If I try for an analogy, it is that the brain is the prime instrument of our intelligence. there are others but work on your brain. Calculate arrival time from distance remaining and speed. eg Compare with your watch on arrival. And the brain is like an onion. Onions have layers and big onions have more layers. The great thing is that merely using your brain adds the layers required to use it more.
It is no doubt for boomers with the first episode running in 1960. I don't really watch it, other than seeing some of it, as my wife is a regular viewer.
I feel somewhat outside of this discussion since I don't watch media or play computer games. My sense is that the shows and characters you are discussing are being completely changed and destroying the otherwise loyal following. Coronation Street has always worked by incrementally introducing new characters into a moderately stable existing set of players. It also seems to follow social trends rather than to promote and lead them.
It took some years for the gay priest to appear and be characterized as just some otherwise normal priest. Going to the online crutch I did see that the Guardian reported that Corrie keeps disposing of it's Lesbians, for whatever reason other than drama.
Still have to watch the video but you bring up an interesting topic of how today's electronic "personal assistants" are turning brains to mush and well as isolating and generating "lonely" people according to a headline I noticed.
When my computer comes on it does not give me the most important news of the day since I've discarded that stuff in my browser. I'm asked all the time if I want "notifications" which I always reject.
At my age it's important to keep the brain active and learning to minimize it's decline. I like to play poker as part of that, particularly since I'm not very good at body language but am trying hard to learn. It amazing (well I suppose not really) how many young 20-30 year olds lack basic math skills. If they bet $35 and an opponent goes all in for $87 they ask "how much more" because they can't do the simple subtraction.
