Censorship

  • Wokeism

    Speaking of ‘the illusion of change by activism’: what I have noticed, whilst pottering around the world-wide-web, is that those of a sinistral statist ideology (such as your ‘marxism/ postmodernism/ feminism’ wording is suggestive of) are apparently extracting meaning and/or purpose from busying themselves in the redressment of systemic cultural ‘wrongs’, via the heavy hand of state compulsion*, through retaining tight control of ‘the public narrative’ – having long-ago seized the high moral ground of minority-group injustice (as per your ‘fighting for the rights of the vulnerable classes’ words) – on a yet-to-be-demonstrated premiss that an equitable society can be legislated into existence (i.e., imposed on all citizens at the point of state-owned/ state-controlled guns), in a ‘majority-rules’ society, on a ‘minorities-rule’ basis. —ref

    […] A simpler thesis would be that the reason so much of “Big Tech” spontaneously coordinated [to censor] as it did was a political calculus aimed at avoiding onerous regulation by currying favour with the incoming administration.

  • Woke arrogation of Paradox of tolerance

    The Woke has arrogated Mr. Karl Popper’s “Paradox of tolenrace” to advance their authoritarian Censorship and deplatforming measures. The irony here is that, when Mr. Popper’s “Paradox of tolerance” is followed to the tee it would result in the deplatforming of the Woke themselves. u/LotsRegret explains this:

  • Wikipedia is not neutral

    Deleted by an editor, presumably as an act of Censorship so as to artfully prevent a casual critical reader from being cognizant of their bias.

  • Unearthing heterodox views from Wikipedia

    Wikipedia is not trust worthy in controversial topics. Here’s a trick I use to extract heterodox views on topics which are otherwise censored in Wikipedia.

  • Stay niche

    This explains why social media was interesting in its beginning years, but have gotten increasingly constrictive (due to censorship) and of average quality in the current times.

  • Anti-crypto

    I predict essentially identical Censorship/deplatforming policies across all layers of the legacy Internet stack. Client-side & server-side ISPs, cloud platforms, CDNs, payment networks, client OSs, browsers, email clients. With only rare exceptions. The pressure is intense. —Marc Andreessen
