Though this is an extremely difficult time right now for content creators, if this YouTube purge had happened 2 or 3 years ago, I think things would be much worse. We must be grateful for platforms like Minds and the fantastic community they've helped to develop. There is hope for free speech on these platforms and you can see it in the engagement in comments and the belief of the users here. We will win the war of ideas in the end and freedom of expression will prevail. Stay strong.
