Oh dear God, make it stop.
There was a time when American Big Tech was the end-all and be-all.
It seems those days are rapidly going the way of the dodo.
For sure, there will be many companies that survive – and even flourish.
But it’s becoming painfully obvious that certain political, social, and cultural influences are starting to crush innovation, cripple sales, and piss off a whole lot of ordinary folks…
Here we go again! From Alex Jones to Diamond & Silk to Telesur, suddenly social media is penalizing certain voices rather dramatically.
The majority of the people I talk to think that the whole thing’s ridiculous, and I tend to agree.
Most people are even afraid to say anything, or if they do, they excuse themselves by also declaring that they don’t necessarily agree with everything the censored person is saying.
But that’s totally messed up!
You either have free speech, or you don’t. Whether or not we agree is irrelevant.
