I haven't been writing in, because darnit where to even begin?
This is what I put in just now as my reason for unsubscribing from newsletters from one news source:
I support freedom of speech and am highly suspicious of Facebook etc becoming deciders and arbiters of truth. Your blatant push for censorship goes against my most basic principles. Put across competing ideas instead of treating me like a little child who cannot decide between right and wrong that needs to be protected by you. Nobody holds Monopoly over truth, but it exists and censorship won't help reach it. And stop getting offended by online posts and start getting offended by on-ground rioting for God's sake, the latter is what will kill us sooner.
Here is the orweillian nightmare of an article that triggered this, talk about wanting to cut off the head to cure the headache:
Who the bloody hell do you think is going to be doing that regulating? Precisely the kind of people who you don't want to be doing it!
Would you like to show your appreciation for this work through a small contribution?
