I wasn't aware that social media was "centralized"...;) I'm not sure that is the problem. I think the problem is that political censors with shallow mental capacities are running the cancel culture. It's the banning of speech that is the problem.
It may seem like social media is "centralized" and that one "big" censor is directing all of the "little censors" as to content they should ban. But really, I think what happens is mere copy-catting. Censors by nature are fairly dense/dumb, so they merely copy one another. There should be no censors
employed by social media--that would fix the problem nicely.
IMO, apart from the following two characteristics, no speech should be censored:1) Gratuitously profane posts which do little aside from convey profanity sans any rational thought.
(Ex: "F---,F---,F---, you, u motherf---ing S-- o- a b-----! Eat my d---!")2) Threats of physical violence against named individuals.
(Ex: "I am going to shoot J-- B---- soon.", etc.)
Apart from the two conditions above--nothing at all should be censored from public discourse. Censorship of political speech is not only as dumb and unenlightened and as backwards as it gets, in America it is unconstitutional (illegal) for any US government authority, be it local, state, or federal, to penalize or punish any American for his political speech. Free speech is an American birthright. Only fools and ingrates would see that right nullified, imo. American social media companies which pretend to offer-free speech platforms to the American public--but don't--should be heavily fined by the government until the censorship of non-profane, non-threatening discussion stops. $1 million a day in fines should do it for the first 90 days, escalating to $2 million a day for the next 90 days, escalating to $3 million a day for the next 90 days, and so on--until either the company goes bust or the censorship finally stops.
Few people will be happy with Tim Cook or Zuckerberg telling them what they can read, what they can say, and what they can think. IE, the judgment and reasoning capabilities of either of these individuals is sorely deficient in this regard. Free public political speech is always
the best policy! And in America, it's the law
It is well known universally that I do not make mistakes--so, if you should happen across an error in that which I have written, please be assured that *I* did not write it!...:)
