    Society is moving towards a situation where there are an acceptable range of opinions. Anything outside that acceptable range must not be given airtime, must be condescended towards and ridiculed, and the speaker/writer of the unacceptable opinion must be educated or re-educated until he or she recants accepts the norm. A goal is to make news like it was when the Big 3 (ABC, NBC, and CBS) was all there was for tv news. Net platforms, Amazon, etc. will shut down opinions outside the acceptable range of opinions. The acceptable range of opinions will grow more and more narrow. We may still have 2 parties, but they will be virtually indistinguishable. It's not so much that it will be "left" or "right", it will be all that there is. Dissent will be ridiculed, and ultimately quashed.

    Of course, all of this is an affront the First Amendment, but those pushing this agenda view the Constitution as a mere obstacle. "Liberals" have cheered this on, but both liberals and conservatives will both really hate what it all turns into.

    It's been going on for a long time, but it's really coming to a head now.
