Germany and France surprisingly backed United States President Donald Trump after he was banned from social media platforms including Twitter and Facebook extending Europe's battle with big technology. Read full article
It is not surprising and they are right about the digital oligarchy no matter how low opinions are about the person being censored in this case (Mr. Trump)
The following article in the US media is an interesting view about the matter of ”a small and unelected elite” controlling the media.
True enough, Hans, but both France and Germany themselves censor a wide range of controversial ideas, from holocaust revisionism to Querdenkers. It remains up to the individual to think for himself, but the ability to share such thoughts should be a universal right (liberty), regardless how factually wrong or controversial the opinions might be. Without liberty, the pursuit of happiness is impossible.
These are private companies and they can do what they like within the law and this is within the law.
Not allowing someone to use your digital platform isn't a restriction of free speech. They can still say whatever they want... just not there.
This isn't about freedom or liberty or any other rights. This is just a private company kicking off an idiot.
No more no less.
Actually Skip is the perfect example of what the Marxists described as a Social Idiot in advancing their evil agenda. Skip ignorantly repeats like a parrot the propaganda of the Leftist Elites.
Skip is the perfect Social Idiot...
Social Idiot... No proof, no truth, any idiot can opine and be like Trump, a revealed liar.
