No wonder interactions with politicians have become increasingly manufactured and distant in recent decades. The powers-that-be wants us kept at a distance. Press conferences and televised speeches now largely take the place of face-to-face interaction with constituents. Elected officials keep voters at arms-length through the use of electronic meetings and ticketed events. And there has been an increased use of so-called “free speech zones,” designated areas for expressive activity used to corral and block protestors at political events from interacting with public officials. Both the Democratic and Republican parties have used “free speech zones” at various conventions to mute any and all criticism of their policies and likely will do so again this year.
We’re nearing the end of the road for free speech and freedom in general, folks.

The politicians and bureaucrats don’t want to be bothered by the rabble!
Gooferment censorship leads to self-censorship.
