A new survey by the Cato Institute reveals that 62% of Americans are too intimidated to express their political opinions with others.
The Daily Caller calls it “self-censorship”:
Self-censorship is on the rise according to a new Cato Institute survey that reports nearly two-thirds of Americans are afraid to share their political views.
A new CATO Institute/YouGov national survey found 62% of Americans say the political climate today prevents them from saying what they believe. This is up several points from 2017 when 58% of Americans said they were afraid to share their political beliefs.
“31% of liberals, 30% of moderates and 34% of conservatives are worried their political views could get them fired or harm their career trajectory,” the CATO survey stated.
The radicals want to stop people from expressing their opinions and try to get people fired from their jobs for expressing their opinions. It is often referred to as cancel culture:
