    Default Re: Censorship and the freedom of the internet

    Cyberpunk books and stories been making the same sorts of predictions since the 1980's. Envisioning a future where corporations are the real power and governments are just little puppet states that are allowed to continue to exist to make the plebs feel like they have a say in how things are going.

    I'm not sure we'll ever actually get there. I can see a hard crackdown hitting Google and related companies over the span of the next 4-5 years. Especially since it seems both sides of the political spectrum are now taking issue with them. They hid for a long time behind the shield of social justice, but that shield has always been made of paper. Those folks eat their own all the time.

    Andrew Anglin (via Gab)

    In America, a private company is run out of business for being Christians who refuse to bake anal sex cakes.

    But a conspiracy of private infrastructure monopolies can shut down political speech and the government does nothing.

    America is a epitome of a failed state

    The core concept is now a hoax

    Their registrar is threatening to deplatform them. Thing is, they should choose to die on this hill, because the only value their platform has is free speech. If they cave on this issue they are just a shitty twitter clone that gives lip service to free speech.

    Is this sticking to the small fish, or is it going wider/bigger? Are we going to see /pol/ go down?
    Nowadays when people start to get killed by fireballs, no one says they need to dodge the fireball anymore; they say they need to go get a fire resist ring and some ice damage so they don't have to.

    It's going pretty wide when a site like gab.ai, probably the most credible Twitter alternative, with a million active users - is threatened to be de-listed from the internet unless they censor to SJW standards. That's exactly what happened today.

    It wouldn't surprise me to see the same tactics leveraged against 4chan, 8ch, and Voat. Essentially any of those places large enough to attract attention but not already actively adhering to SJW style censorship (eg. hurt feelings = hate speech).

    It also wouldn't surprise me to see them go after archive sites like archive.is after that, since they don't censor archived content. (archive.org does censor)

    Call for Donald Trump to Give Refuge to All K-Pop Idols Before South Korea Gets Itself Rekt
    https://dailystormer.at/call-for-don...s-itself-rekt/

    "However, there is one thing that absolutely cannot be replaced, and that is K-Pop.

    Without K-Pop, social scientists predict that the entire Western world will be tossed into a pit of eternal despair.

    “For at least 30% of the white western male population, K-Pop idols are the only thing keeping them from blowing their fucking brains out or going full DyRo on random bunches of niggers,” says Professor Hans Grolen of the University of Berlin. “If the supply of K-Pop is cut off, we’re going to see suicides, we’re going to see niggers getting blasted at random, we’re going to see a huge portion of men just saying ‘fuck it, I’m done.'”"

    What do you guys think? Is it a small coincidence that this supposed sexual harassment came out years later while he was known for his support of Trump? Fox News let him go as a result. Do you think his son actually killed himself by drug overdose or do you think his son was killed to shut him up?
    "Nah man, a Paladin has to play fair and by the rules. Do you really see Silly not attacking a weakened opponent? Or rather, not exploiting a weakness to take an enemy down? He'd totally do that. It's the law of the jungle with Silly, even if he does have faith. I think he's principled, just not merciful." - Zavon

    I think it's an actual drug overdose. Children of politicians do that sort of thing all the time.
