The Big Tech censorship: What is started as 1984, will end up as 1939

“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out, Because I was not a socialist... Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak for me.”

“First they came ..." is the poetic form of a post-war confessional prose by the German Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984).

It is about the cowardice of German intellectuals and certain clergy - including, by his own admission, Niemöller himself- following the Nazis' rise to power and subsequent incremental purging of their chosen targets, group after group.

Many variations and adaptations in the spirit of the original have been published in the English language. It deals with themes of persecution, guilt, repentance, and personal responsibility.
