Default If Free-Speech falls, we're in trouble

I continue to be amazed at the ability of people to blindly allow people to be silenced and lose their voice under the name of protecting people from "bad/dangerous" ideas. Especially from the generation who grew up in the early internet days when you could find videos and pictures of truly horrific shit and terrible ideas.

It started with Alex Jones and everyone laughed and said yeah well he's crazy so he deserves it. Now look where we are, slippery slope is not a logically fallacy, it's very real and we're living it. The sitting president was silenced and removed from the public square.

When will people realize that Free-Speech is there to protect people from the tyranny of those in power. If we allow the pillar of Free-Speech to fall we are all, including the rest of the globe in for some dark times. Put your feelings aside and embrace the bad ideas.

Do you think the Founding Fathers put the First Amendment first just because or do you think it was because it's the pillar of this whole god-damned thing?


PS: This is not the same as the bakery refusing to bake a cake. There are plenty of bakeries. There are not plenty of Facebooks and Twitters.

The president can still go on national television and give a press conference. This like getting mad at a private newspaper that isn't printing your rants anymore because you violated their terms of services multiple times. He already did get a better treatment than normal users

We're hosed.

But I agree, private platforms and user submitted content should be free from government influences. Should heavily moderate their own platforms. And be liable to civil suites in the case of egregious lies and slander, like the insane lies and claims of Trump. Should not have to respect your rights to say whatever you feel at the moment, and shouldn't encourage knee-jerk heated commentary.

If you want to say crazy shit. Print your own leaflets, host your own webserverver, buy your own megaphone and publish your own blog. And if that blog calls for murder and insurrection. Well, you aught be held accountable for inciting violence.

Don't force others to host your drivel. YouTube isn't beholden to StormFront. Or Alex Jones.
