So right now in the political discourse many from the right, the conservatives and even some libertarians are being shut down by leftist media. I can think of many examples, here are just a few:
Milo’s twitter account was marked as un-verified and then eventually his account was shut down.
Milo’s book which had been given the green light by both Amazon and his publisher was removed.
Disney severed ties with PewDiePie and YouTube locked out some of his content after WaPo wrote a BS hit piece on him.
Mark Dice has had several videos banned and taken down.
PJW also had several videos banned and taken down.
Alex Jones claims Google de-ranked much of his content in the SERPs and that Facebook is limiting his video and page views.
Professor Jordan Peterson has his YouTube and Google accounts locked.
Natural News was banned by Google and claims it’s since being attacked by YouTube and Facebook.
I could go on.
And every time I read one of these stories I think we could offer a solution. And we can. We will have the capabilities.
But the question is will we? Or will we succumb and let our own political bias get in the way?
Whether you agree or disagree with what these people and organisations say and do unless they are advocating for violence their speech should be protected.
I know where I stand.
Where do you stand?
And this is an important question, because at the end of the day the network is the network. Humans are the key to it succeeding and if we just build another network that is better but one where humans can and will meddle with it because of their own philosophies, ideologies, morals or lack thereof than what’s the point in even trying?
