Deep down you all know Big Tech, Entertainment, and the MSM are corrupt to their cores, owned by Trillionaires, and have zero intention of helping humanity reach higher levels of consciousness because people at high levels of consciousness are impossible to separate from their money and their freedoms. Truth Social is being built from the ground up without the use of huge established Tech company's. It's been what, six weeks? And Liberals are already putting vaseline on their anuses, getting ready to celebrate. Let me tell you something. The next 20 years are going to be one long, slow, miserable defeat for Liberals.

How sad.
