Greetings to everyone who has been subscribed to my YouTube channel. I want to briefly let you know that my channel has been suspended.
My channel was suspended this morning. Three of my videos were forcefully removed within a timeframe of three months resulting in the suspension. The removed videos are ‘Shrooms: Methods of Consumption’, ‘Magic Mushroom Smoothie’ and ‘Trying Salvia Divinorum Live’. They were all flagged as ‘dangerous’. I have filed a protest, but considering YouTube’s silly policies and abuse of power I think it is very unlikely that I will regain control over my channel.
My view on psychedelics are that one should not take insane doses right away. Respect the molecule you’re working with. I have explicitly stated this in my videos. How is showing people how to safely dose dangerous? Also, how is giving people different ways of consuming shrooms and making a shroom smoothie dangerous? Obviously it isn’t. People were going to consume shrooms regardless of my video. I just gave some tips on how to mask the taste that many people dislike.
Of course the videos of people who recklessly take insane doses with poor set and setting do not get taken down. Instead, they get millions of views and thousands of dollars of ad revenue. Why does Youtube target responsible users and not the ones who are actually doing dangerous things? It almost seems as if YouTube is knowingly attacking responsible content. Obviously, a bad image is much better maintained by videos of people who jump out of windows and go crazy than people who become a better version of themselves.
The policies of YouTube keep getting crazier and I believe their end is near. People want their freedom back and that’s exactly where decentralized platforms come to play. DTube or something similar will be the next big thing.
