I ask “Is there” because i hope this has been resolved. I’m taking about the importance of gaining freedom of speech but not at the cost of more human suffering. Of cause i am talking about how can we decentralise the internet with out aiding the distribution of content that a majority of the world would not want to be distributed.
I am trying not to be specific about the distribution of what, for a reason, i don’t want government to dictate morality to me through propaganda and oppression and i as an individual don’t want to dictate my morality to you.
This leaves a problem, the elephant, If we don’t at least start resolve this, then i don’t believe we are responsible enough to do this.
As an analogy we could talk of the people who oppress societies as the parents. As children grow up we hope to nurture them, show them the joys and dangers of life, educate them to make good decisions and hopefully to prosper. Put aside for one minuet whether the parents of your society are good parents or not, and concentrate on us, the rebellious teenagers. No mater how bad your parents the majority of them do have some good rules which we take on board and follow in our adult lives, we also look to other peers and parents for good ways to live.
I hope you see where i am going with this, lets thrash around like rebellious teenagers, lets make this world better, however lets not forget that are parents did pass down some beneficial rules for ourselves and society.
Decentralised morality? I don’t know how these problems can be solved but if we are going to remove a small group of people deciding what’s right and wrong then maybe decentralising those decisions is a good starting point for thinking about a solution. I mean if a significant percentage of the world population believes something is detrimental to society then i have faith that they are correct.
