Facebook Claims Humanity to Blame for 'Need' to Censor

Linkedin Share

With Facebook finding itself under increasing scrutiny in recent months due to their admitted election meddling, the canned lines coming from within the organization are getting more bizarre by the day.

Facebook’s recent purge of hundreds of business and personal accounts based on their political content was seen by many as a new low in the history of American free speech.  The enormous reach of the social media platform has elevated Facebook to the status of a virtual town square, where anyone can make their opinions heard, advertise their wares, or connect with those inside of their community.

But only if Mark Zuckerberg likes it.

You see, Facebook’s CEO has taken to eliminating anyone who doesn’t share his political beliefs from the platform.  It’s disingenuous at best, fascism at its worst.

When asked to explain why Facebook has taken such heavy stances against free speech, Mark Zuckerberg delivered an excuse that should have us all very concerned for the future of the First Amendment.

Facebook could artificially limit the reach of your content even if it doesn’t break the platform’s rules, according to a new post from Mark Zuckerberg that describes how the platform will limit “sensational,” “provocative” and “offensive” content that allegedly comes close to violating rules.

In a lengthy blog post, the Facebook CEO framed the natural preferences of users as a problem. “Left unchecked, people will engage disproportionately with more sensationalist and provocative content,” wrote Zuckerberg.

His post included two images that show how Facebook plans to limit the traffic of “sensationalist and provocative content,” that contrast the natural pattern of users’ engagement with posts with the socially engineered pattern that Facebook hopes to achieve.

That’s right: Mark Zuckerberg is trying to save the world by changing what you and I are allowed to know about it, because he believes that we are inherently unworthy of freedom.

If that doesn’t sound like something out of the tyrants’ playbook, I don’t know what does.
