The end of the World Wide Web
Google no longer has any chance of surviving in China: The Chinese are currently building a perfectly censored and controlled internet. The international market leader in search engines, with its media subsidiary YouTube, has meanwhile also become controversial around the world.

But the company is going on the offensive and censoring more than is actually required. Everything that is believed to be “disinformation” is deleted if it appears to be dangerous to their vaccine narrative. In Europe the picture is not that different. Various laws and European directives encourage Google, YouTube and Facebook to censor anyone they do not agree with – the so-called “unwoke”.
Anyone even questioning whether the seasonal flu is actually more dangerous than Covid-19, has become a target. When the major broadcaster Russia Today tried to do so, YouTube just shut them down. RT’s German-language channels (RT DE and Der Fehlende Part) were permanently deleted by YouTube.
The Russian media supervisory authority Roskomnadzor has warned Google, the parent company of YouTube, that it now faces massive restrictions if YouTube does not remove the ban on the two channels of RT’s German-language service.
The company took down the channels over alleged “medical misinformation” in four videos. Among these cases of supposed “misinformation” was an interview with German epidemiologist Friedrich Puerner, who was critical of his government’s methods of battling the pandemic despite being in favor of vaccination.
The Kremlin may decide to implement massive restrictions on YouTube, possibly even blocking YouTube in Russia.
The company has definitely been overreacting because Western governments are getting more and more nervous about their agenda being exposed. This is obvious from labelling an innocent news item as so-called “medical misinformation”. YouTube itself claimed that millions of videos have now been deleted because of such alleged false information.
Most likely, however, the Kremlin will pursue an alternative to YouTube. It’s only a matter of time before Google disappears in the Russian-speaking world. And then the World Wide Web will no longer be the World Wide Web. In countries and spheres of influence there will be different networks with different operators, search engines, social platforms and, above all, censorship rules.
In that way, other ways of thinking, cultures and religions, other political views and other business enterprises will prevail. The notion of “one country, one truth” will therefore become obsolete. The Russian, the American, the European, the Chinese, maybe the Indian or the Brazilian world will come about.
The only consolation then is that Google and all other global internet companies will inevitably go under because they are digging their own grave right now.
On Tuesday, the Russian Foreign Ministry described the decision to remove the two channels as an “act of unprecedented information aggression” and an “obvious manifestation of censorship and suppression of freedom of expression”. According to diplomats, YouTube had acted with “obvious tolerance, if not at the urging” of the German authorities.
The details of the alleged violation are not yet clear, but the editor-in-chief of RT, Margarita Simonjan, said that this latest event was tantamount to a “media declaration of war by Germany against Russia”.
