Whack-A-Mole Censorship

I try so hard not to get upset
Because I know all the trouble I'll get
--Til Tuesday

Make no mistake, current efforts by the Left to shut down media commentators that they do not like is an admission that the Left cannot compete in the market for ideas. They fear that their own ideas will be rejected in uninhibited exchanges of thought. Therefore, they seek to interfere in markets where competing designs are likely to be judged superior.

Unfortunately for these people, the market for ideas has never been less controllable. Shut down a voice on one venue, and the voice subsequently pops up elsewhere.

The Left is playing a game of whack-a-mole censorship.
