Hopefully, people will see just how evil Alt Right is
I'm quite disturbed that a few corporations can collude to silence ideas that they don't like
Everyone should have the right to their own political opinions, but that doesn't mean that everyone has the right to abuse their employer's resources to express them.
The question thus is must YOU tolerate all info - no matter how despicable and repugnant you may find it - or may you exercise discretion and pick and choose what info you allow on your site?
despicable and repugnant
Now if I had a near monopoly over forums, or was an organized group of megacorporations synchronizing their blocking of DNS records (godaddy), search (google), and hosting (cloudflare) then it would be de-facto censorship if I were to pick and choose who gets heard, based on politics.
Google is a near-monopoly, and the others are not too far behind.
To have powerful corporations colluding to suppress content is also wrong.
@patrick I again ask you to answer the question. At what point are you permitted to say "thanks but no thanks" to someone whose ideas you find repugnant?
At the same time, they cannot force you to host & help them disseminate info which causes you so much pain and embarrassment.
Kind of like how Christianity has a monopoly on Religion in this country.
Using their politicians to destroy this country while harming its citizens.
Google is a near-monopoly, and the others are not too far behind.When in actual fact they become monopolies and are telling you what you may not read, will you be concerned? Or not, because after all, they can choose to lose you as a customer ... to nobody?
Yup just like Cannabis/Hemp Prohibition. The most UnAmerican of all the injustices that the Christian Church has used the USFEDGOV to terrorize the populace, and for what?
Anyway - to carry your answer to the logical extreme of my sterilization hypothetical, is it fair to state your position as: When an entity is at or near monopoly power it MUST accommodate all ideas, even if those ideas/info are potentially destructive to civilization itself. Is this correct?
Ok - so per the all ideas deserve equal time rule - the Paul Erlich contemporaries who openly advocate for someone to spike our water supply with "temporary sterilants" to deprive anyone from having children deserve as much a voice as anyone else. Correct?
anonymous saysOk - so per the all ideas deserve equal time rule - the Paul Erlich contemporaries who openly advocate for someone to spike our water supply with "temporary sterilants" to deprive anyone from having children deserve as much a voice as anyone else. Correct?All nonviolent ideas deserve at least a hearing, so sure, even Paul Erlich should be heard.
Anyway, my principle is that nonviolent ideas do not deserve censorship.
What do you mean? Trump has not tried to censor anything.
NFL players?Trump is strongly advocating for a monopoly to siilence non-violent free speech.
Enough with this bs comparison. You can't go work for Monsanto and run a blog against Round-Up
