My earliest exposure to science fiction/film noir, was Rod Serling’s Twilight Zone. Although I’m not sure which episode I saw first, there are a distinct few that left a lasting impression on me. One in particular. The episode in question stars Burgess Meredith as a simple librarian.

In the opening scene, he is lead into a sort of courtroom, complete with judge and jury. The judge and his jurors are dressed in dull gray, communist-style uniforms. During the course of this “trial,” the librarian is deemed obsolete. “Because, we’ve burned all the books, what purpose does a librarian serve”?

As a young man, this idea scared the Hell out of me. Not because it could actually happen, because it already had in Russia, Germany, China, etc. Members of my very own family had fought this evil. I’m still fighting the evil of censorship. Consider that my facebook account has been banned so many times I’ve had to make a new one. I’m still banned from Twitter, and my editor is being sued by radical communists, merely for pointing out violent rhetoric in their own publications.

Yet, when myself or fellow conservatives get actual death threats via social media, “it does not violate community standards.” We now live in a nation where media is controlled by the progressive/socialist majority. If you dare have your own opinion, you will be silenced. I can only imagine a dark future, where their numbers have grown, and violence against dissenting voices is acceptable. Because if I’ve noticed anything this past year, the left is perfectly fine with violence being used for political gain.

I’m now the obsolete man. I find myself having to defend my ideas and opinions everywhere I go. I find myself being abandoned by friends of many, many years. I notice now and then that people dissappear from my friends’s list. Several have actually blocked me. Ideas other than their own are no longer acceptable. These were people I viewed as brothers and sisters. I’m now disliked by them to the point, they no longer acknowledge my existence.

I would love to say this does not bother me, but it does.

I’m obsolete. I was something that entertained, brought happiness, and even loyalty to the table. But myself, and others like me, have served our purpose. Ideas that were commonplace just a few years ago, are now deemed dangerous, or hate speech. Instead of jurors in gray uniforms pointing and screaming “obsolete! obsolete!”, that mantra has been replaced with words like “racist,” or “homophobe.” And I’ve been called all of them, even though I am neither, and have proven so time and time again.

There is simply no room for free thought in 2018. And if you dare speak your mind, be prepared for war. There are very powerful people sitting behind desks at Google, Twitter, Youtube and the like. They want us to shut up and go away. So much so, they’re willing to hold secret trials to expose their own employees. On the street level, there are people willing to bash your head in because of your opinions. Not only willing, they’ve actually done so at protests across the nation.

Mr. Serling called his nightmare vision “A future that could be.” What a brilliant man he was. That future is here, Sir. I’m a sport shooter and collector of antique rifles. Over the past few weeks, I’ve seen every firearm-related channel I watch on Youtube just disappear. Even channels featuring only air guns, gone. Because of make believe channel strikes. The gun is the object we’ve been programmed to hate this week, so let’s make it go away. And the young people rally behind, to support the newest, scripted crisis.

I used to laugh at millenials. Now, I wonder how long before a dozen or so of them, wearing red arm bands, drag me from my home and put a gun to my head.

A future that could be……

Or should I say, a future that is slowly creeping it’s way into our lives and homes more and more everyday.
