    ‘Dilbert’ comic stripped from nearly 80 newspapers

    The popular “Dilbert” comic strip that parodies the trials and tribulations of office life is being pulled by nearly 80 publications where it regularly appeared, according to its author.

    Because, as the saying goes, the left are humourless and can’t mem.

    The elimination of the 33-year-old strip appears to be one of many cuts made by Lee Enterprises, which is reportedly scaling back its cartoon pages overall.

    Why cut it?

    Several … publications pursued the narrative that “Dilbert” had been “canceled” due to some sort of political agenda.

    So because it was making fun of everything and not promoting a narrow political agenda…

    Cancel Culture strikes again, it seems.

    The “agenda” is a political and a monetary agenda.  That being the means are political but the ends are monetary. The agenda has been around for a long time.  I figure since Vietnam or just post WW2.

    The agenda thrived through the narrow focus of the media window for decades until the internet.  At which point all bets were off because of the first promise of the internet, free information.

    So now they are left trying to cancel and censor those that violate the agenda.  And this in itself looks suspicious because essentially the majority questions the agenda although only a minority will speak out against it.

    So what now?  Free information vs. obvious censorship.  Unless an authoritarian regime can be implemented where ALL messages are filtered the agenda will fail.  Hence the move to filter/censor all information.

    This battle for essentially endless supplies of money might hit the streets, it might cause WW3. All we can do is the best we can.
