The Cancel Culture Noose is tightening.
How PayPal supports the restriction of speech.
Within the last two days, I saw many Tweets coming by stating that Paypal might be able to charge you 2,500 USD if you oppose the current thing.
As I try to avoid being gullible, I did my own research on this issue. PayPal’s new legal agreement can be accessed via this link. At the beginning of the document, they state the following:
So it is true that PayPal can charge you 2,500 USD per violation. Let’s look at the violations (i.e. prohibited activities) listed in the document.
What immediately catches my eye are the following issues:
Gender and gender identity
Present a risk to user safety and wellbeing
I have already been banned from other social media platforms for statements such as "there are only two genders", "the empirical data does not show that masks are effective", and "the vaccines have not been adequately tested". Platform-owned fact checkers have accused me of lying and claiming that my statements are a danger to society.
I doubt this will play out any differently with Paypal. We are already one step closer to the Social Credit System. As soon as digital currencies are introduced, we will be exposed to the arbitrariness of the cultural Stalinists.
Therefore: boycott everything that restricts your freedoms.
