Extremism or ?? or Censorship
About: exclusive: google, facebook quietly move toward automatic blocking of extremist videos
This article brings up a whole domain of inquiry:
- What is Extremism & how does one distinguish it from acceptable politics?
- M$M & other corporate entities seem to have grown to governmental level influence FB, Twitter …. (see article) – at what point are they a monopoly?
- Internet – how much free speech is allowed & why should it be restricted at all?
- Internet governance is being ceded to an unelected group of globalists – to what effect?
- Will anti-global warming be considered extremism – Obama already wants it to be illegal for political reasons & financial control of industry
- In the context of ISIS & other terrorism, just like the watch list & no fly lists what is the recourse to get unbanned or court of repeal process?
- How close will this approach censorship for the current power structure to censor dissent going well beyond political correctness? or advance an agenda for one of the candidates .
- Technology – PhotoDNA 0 google? – seems like a human has to be in the mix somewhere to identify what exactly is child porn or terrorism .. this may prevent proliferation, however.
- The Counter Extremism Project ?
- Is it guaranteed against hacking of any central/distributed database? by any blockchain technology?
- How does it collide with religious freedom? Another subject for sure, can humanity accept the diversity of beliefs & faiths of all peoples without accepting clearly evil horse-shit?
- Assuming this is all benign & protective of our citizenry, how could it be extended to decrease the publicity given to mass shootings & lone-wolf miscreants ?
