I do see it as the government doing it because they start out with the government threatening Facebook with investigations, then the Atlantic Council is suddenly the ones advising them who to ban. They openly admitted it was the Atlantic Council advising the bans when they were banning The Free Thought Project and others in that early round of bans that they claimed was Russian "inauthentic behavior", the round just after Alex Jones was banned, which it would be harder to call him Russian. Those bans were pretty uniformly war and militarized police critic bans and the Atlantic Council is made of militaries and military contractors.

And now Facebook is interested in its own industry being regulated and is buying itself influence in exactly where the regulation line will be (something they can pull off but up and coming competitors can't) by playing ball with what the ones pushing for wars and big pharma wants.

And my kids were going to behave perfectly all the time and if they didn't, they'd be Dobsoned, but I was going to Dobson so perfectly that they'd know not to slip up but once or twice because I was going to be sooooooo consistent and awesome and wise.

What exactly is FB without our words? Nothing.

Banning should be extremely limited. Censorship should be extremely limited and not like how it is now.



I checked out MeWe yesterday.

I saw a article that said that they were taking down videos about Nazis, like History Channel documentaries. I how that's not the case.

YouTube is demonetizing and even hiding anything that might cause controversy. That does include a lot of History channels are losing monetization so they can't make money trying to run their channels.
I don't think Facebook or Twitter are doing that right now.

Instead,“Facebook hopes to draw those who use competing services like Telegram, Signal, Skype, Google’s Hangouts (formerly known as GChat), Apple’s IMessage, or classic SMS to Facebook’s various and soon-to-be-united messaging services,” Siva Vaidhyanathan argues in The Guardian. “Crushing all those apps, along with email and old-fashioned phone calls, would be a major step toward becoming the operating system of our lives,” a Silicon Valley WeChat.

Yeah, noooooo.

You cannot be too gentle, too kind. Shun even to appear harsh in your treatment of each other. Joy, radiant joy, streams from the face of him who gives and kindles joy in the heart of him who receives. All condemnation is from the devil. Never condemn each other. ... Keep silent, refrain from judgment. This will raise you above the deadly arrows of slander, insult and outrage and will shield your glowing hearts against all evil.
