Platforms, Speech And Truth: Policy, Policing And Impossible Choices (Techdirt)

Techdirt: Platforms, Speech And Truth: Policy, Policing And Impossible Choices. “TLDR: Internet sites have every right in the world to kick people off their platforms, and there’s no legal or ethical problem with that. No one’s free speech is being censored. That said, we should be at least a bit concerned about the idea that giant internet platforms get to be some sort of arbiter of what speech is okay and what speech is not, and how that can impact society more generally. But there are possible solutions to this, even if none are perfect and some may be difficult to implement, and we should explore those more thoroughly, rather than getting into screaming fights over who should or shouldn’t be allowed to use various internet platforms.”
