To the dictatorial mindset bordering on the cultic, it is not enough for the tyrannized person to do as they are told.
Such souls must articulate that they rapturously agree with the imposition placed upon them or at least refrain from verbalizing their disagreement.
As proof that the House of Mouse most identifies with characters amidst its assorted franchises such as Thanos and Palpatine, Disney fiefdom ESPN suspended broadcaster Sage Steele in part for admitting that, while she dutifully acquiesced to requirements to submit to the Plague Cult elixir in order to retain the opportunity to put food on the table and a roof over he head, to demand such obedience on the part of corporate vassals is in a sense sick and scary.
Steele recanted of nothing more than what most discerning people have already thought in the following bit of rhetorical self-denunciation: “We are in the midst of an extremely challenging time...it's more critical than ever that we communicate constructively and thoughtfully.” <p>
Until recently, one would have thought that would have included vocalizing our concerns about governments and behemoth corporations in collusion forcing individuals to alter their very biochemistry ultimately against their will.
