We are seeing a return to the old concept of lèse-majesté or punishing offenses against the dignity of the reigning ruler. For example, in Thailand you’d best not mention that the new king, in contrast to his dignified dad, looks like a degenerate. In the English-speaking world, you’d best not joke about Meghan Markle, not so much because she married into the British royal family, but because she’s (kind of) black. That’s just not done. Combine that with joking about the holiest human that ever lived, George Floyd, and you are canceled, even by a conservative newspaper. https://vdare.com/posts/columnist-julie-burchill-canceled-for-suggesting-princess-markle-name-her-new-baby-georgina-floydina

My hypothesis: Finland and, to a lesser extent, all the Nordic countries, are highly conformist cultures in which you’re not supposed to “rock the boat.” This may be due to small gene pool and adaptation to extreme cold where only highly cooperative groups survive. But the intense conformity—the desire not to “stand out”- means that Multiculturalism has spread through Finland at incredible speed: it has taken only about a decade. And now it is the orthodoxy, it must not be questioned. By criticizing the public promotion of homosexuality, the former Christian Democrat leader ventured into Woke-shark infested waters. https://vdare.com/articles/is-finland-headed-to-civil-war-are-we

One of these defensive measures is cryptocurrency. We can’t count on Big Tech to do the right thing, so we must teach ourselves and our supporters, to use alternative methods of funding our fight! See all of our crypto addresses here. (Now including USDC thanks to the advice of a good friend of VDARE.com. We love you! You know who you are!) If you too want to be proactive in adopting cryptocurrency, and don’t know where to begin, we can help with that! Follow these steps below to become a cryptocurrency wiz. And if you have further questions or just want some live support, don't hesitate to call our office at 860-361-6231. https://vdare.com/posts/build-a-fortress-via-cryptocurrency
