During a World Economic Forum (WEF) panel discussion, Harvard Professor Naomi Oreskes compared free speech to “fascism” while demanding censorship of the public on social media.
While speaking at the WEF’s annual globalist gathering in Davos Switzerland, Oreskes condemned free speech.
She called for Elon Musk’s “scary” X to be forced to censor its users to crack down on this alleged rise in so-called “fascism.”
“For a long time I was on Twitter, and now it’s become such a toxic place that I’ve concluded it’s not a worthwhile place to spend time,” Oreskes said.
“And as you’ve said, it is exhausting.
“So you do have to pick and choose and you have to think about where, the places where you can get your message across.
“But I am trying to figure out, I mean, I have given up on X.
“What a scary name that even is, right.
“And I don’t know what the alternative is right now.”
Swiss physicist Luciana Vaccaro then chimed in:
“So the question of the social media, I must say that I have happened on Twitter too.
“So X, because, yeah, it’s a toxic environment and we talk about it.
“I have no solution on that, but I think one day it will come the moment of the code of conduct in these places, because journals, journalists, if you spread crazy news and insults, and if a journalist thinks it can be amended, why social medias that have such big power?
“We still can because it’s new. But I think there will be a sociological reflection on how information is brought there.
“Of course, on ECS now, there is also the policy of the owner that is problematic.
“But I think this is a problem of the society of the future.
“Did the ontology in social media and that.”
Journalist Rukshan Fernando shared a video of the opening address at this year’s Davos summit, which started this week.
In the speech, European Commission President Ursula Von Der Leyen, who previously served on the WEF’s board of trustees, warned of the threat posed by so-called “disinformation” and “misinformation.”
She called for censorship of the “content that social media platforms promote and propagate.”
After listening in on one day of the WEF24 Agenda at Davos it is very clear that 2024 will see a concerted effort globally by governments and institutions to reign in online platforms with the use of hate speech laws and content regulation legislation.

Ironically, restoring “trust” in governments, unelected bureaucrats – such as Von Der Leyen -, and globalist organizations is at the top of the WEF’s agenda for this year’s summit.
